Big Birthday

Hi Peeps
Thought I'd get the finger out and start posting some of my non DT cards.

The first I was asked to make by a friend for a lady who likes cooking. 
Well that stumped me, Cats, Reading, Horses, Music I could do but I didn't have any idea for that. 
An internet blitz ensued and after several options were dismissed I came across this and fell in love.

I thought she was perfect and could be used for so many different things.
I added the sentiment on the computer and coloured her with Promarkers.
The ribbon and flowers are from my stash and I die cut the numbers using Sizzix Fruit Smoothie.

 Here is the inside.

At the same time as I was doing this I had a 50th coming up so decided to use her for that too.
I forgot to photograph the finished card but here is a work in progress shot.
It had a big 50 in the white space and some pearls.

Christmas starts now

Hi Guys

The sharp eyed may already have spotted my news in the sidebar badge. 
For the rest of us mere mortals I am now on the 

This will have the advantage actually making me do some Crimbo cards before December!

The current challenge is Here Comes Santa
So get your Santa's inked and come play.

I found myself singing a Christmas song while looking at Santas so used it as inspiration .
Can you guess which one?

This cute gent in the red suit is Bugaboo's - Chubby Santa
He's coloured with Promarkers. 
His buttons and belt buckle have Glossy Accents and his hat has been flocked.

I computer generated the sentiment.
Paper and card are from stash.

I'd like to enter him at

Sweet Glamour

Hi Guys

Over at Sweet Stampin' we want you to get your Glam on.
My Mum's Craft Shop is sponsoring Glitz and Glamour.

I've used Saturated Canary - Double Take coloured with Promarkers.
Die cut using Memory Box - Small Debutante Frame and
Small Felicity Frame.

I mounted it on an easel fold card with Bo Bunny - Enchanted papers.
I used the diamond paper as the "floor" because it made me think of a ballroom.
Ribbon and ribbon slide from our monthly sponsor The Ribbon Girl

I used jeweled brads to hold it open. 
Plus I added gems around the frame. 
Then stamped a Prima sentiment in the ready made frame in the paper design.
I had planned to add a gem swirl to the bottom left but I lost them somewhere.
They'll turn up eventually.

I'd like to enter her at

Oldie but a Goodie - Dies and Punches
