Second post of the day! Tie a Yellow Ribbon!

Here's my second entry of the day...

This is another card I made last night! I am not particularly happy with it as the colours is maybe a bit too vibrant....lol or let me say it was not what I had in mind, but I suppose everyone's taste is different!

The image is from Gingerloft and they have a challenge this week to tie a yellow ribbon, so I used that for my main inspiration.
Secondly Simon Says Stamps has got a challenge for stars and stripes  so I added the little golden stars to my image (sorry I know the picture is not very clear) and the stripey papers.
Cooking with Katie has a recipe - Swirls, Sunny and a sentiment so that is why I decided to go for the yellow...
I used the Sketch from the Dutch Dare challenge to design my card by.
Ooh la la - Birthday Card

Well that is all for now, I might be back later with another post...lol 

Good Night

Kenny K Challenge

Good Afternoon Lovely Bloggers,

You won't believe me I came across these lovely images last night and I fell in love with them straight away! So I purchased a couple and couldn't wait to get them coloured. These girlz is just stunning.
So here I am with another card to show you all.

It was really hard to decide which image to get, but I went for this one in the end. I used some glitter card in the back, ( I just can't get it to show up on the piccie) and then I added the embossed holly and the snowflakes, so I will probably add a Christmas sentiment a bit later. I knew from the start I wanted to make an easel card and then I just added the punched borders and feathers to it at the bottom.
I am very happy with the end result, so I hope you all like it.

Challenges I had in mind when designing my card:
Well, Just want to say a huge Thank you for everyone who stopped by my blog to have a look at my card and leave me a comment!

Wags 'n Whiskers - Fairy Iris

Good Evening Bloggers,

Firstly I would like to say a huge thank you for everyone that visited my blog since I posted my first post, and thank you to each and everyone who left me a comment....The reception has been fabulous, there is so many kind hearted people out them and I loved it ever since I signed up!

Anyway I have another card to showcase tonight.
Again I went for a Lovely Fairy from Wags 'n Whiskers - this one is Fairy Iris. I just love fairies and these once is just so irresistible.

I am sorry if my picture is not too good tonight, but the weather has been so bad here today and so gray and the light wasn't playing along....
Anyway my recipe is as follow:
  • Image: Wags 'n Whiskers available from Bunny Zoe's Crafts. I coloured her using my Promarkers, after that I added some stickels to the wings and the buttons. (Sorry this is not showing up very well, I will try to take a better picture tomorrow).
  • The flowers is fabric flowers is from Papermania as well as the buttons which I added to them.
  • The big purple bow was one I recycled previously from a box of chocolates I received for my Birthday and the beads that is hanging down from it, I have had for many many years.
  • The tags I cut out using a die and my cuttlebug which I added a sentiment to.
  • The lace borders was punched using a Martha Stewart punch and lastly I added the three little pearls on the ribbon.
  • I used the sketch from Mojo Monday to design my card by.
Well and I think that is it. Thank you for everyone who took some time to stop by and leave a comment.
I am entering this into the following challenges:
Have a Lovely evening....

My First Post and Card!

Good Evening Everyone,

Well, I have been crafting for most my life, but it has only been very recently when a crafting buddy of mine has convinced me to start my own blog.....So here I am after a lot of convincing and a lot of  struggling to get everything nicely set up. And there is still so much I want to add to my blog, but I suppose Rome wasn't built in one day.

I am not very technical minded but hopefully with some help and lots of patience from everyone I will get there eventually.

Anyway I decided to make a card as one of my crafty friends that has been blogging for a while was helpful enough to send me a list with links to some of the most popular craft challenge blogs, so I decided to make a card for a few of these....is that not a nice way to start off....

So here we go:

I hope you all like it.
My card recipe:

Image: Wags 'n Whiskers, coloured using my lovely new promarkers.
Layered onto Lilac card and Purple Mirri card.  Then I added a punched paper lace border at the bottom with some nice matching ribbon. The scrolls was cut out using my Cricut machine. The Feathers, flowers & pins was just from my craft stash. Lastly I added some nice bling on the swirls and some stickles on her wings and in her hair.
