Alisha's birthday card - All Dressed Up

When I came across this digi from All dressed up I couldn't resist it, I knew it was the perfect image for my daughter's 11th birthday card - so girly and an absolute dream to work with :-)
I coloured the image with promarkers and went for a purple theme as its one of Alisha's favourite colours (and it gave me an excuse to use my fave too lol) Kept it simple with a die cut border, heart and flower then added ribbon and gems from my stash.
As the All Dressed Up blog has just launched their first challenge - "Anything Goes", I'm going to enter this as its the first challenge I've done for a long time, and its the perfect way to get back into challenges, and give me the kick I need lol

A few cards

A small selection of some of the cards I made for friends/family

Saturated Canary "Fancy" coloured with promarkers, papers from stash. Made this for my daughter's friend for her 15th birthday - she's a real girly girl so thought this was perfect for her.

I made this one to celebrate my daughter's fabulous gcse results...the image is from digistamp boutique coloured with promarkers, the papers are from a me to you pack, ribbon from stash
 

Saw this stamp from Mazyarts and couldn't resist making a card for my friend who is a huge Dr Who fan. Used promarkers to colour the image, the paper is a free wallpaper I printed off, card and embellies from stash
 
 
Birthday card made from Hunkydory kit
 
 
 
Friend card swap made using Saturated Canary "Witchies" image, coloured with promarkers - the ironic thing is my friend used the same image for the card she sent me, must say something about us lol

 
1st anniversary card made for mother in law and her husband, wanted to try to keep this one clean and simple, which is something I struggle with
 

 


Its been a while....

Hard to believe its been over a year since I blogged but it has been a really difficult time - health issues,  personal problems, hubby losing his job... certainly doesn't class as the best year I ever had. During all this crafting's kind of taken seat as I've either not felt up to crafting/not really had a reason to make stuff (apart from the odd couple of cards) and mostly no money to buy new goodies lol. I decided though enough is enough... why shouldn't I do something I enjoy just because life dealt me a rough blow lol So time to blow away the cobwebs and deal with it lol
