Baby Shower...

Happy Sunday!
Hope everyone is well.
 I have had some baby cards to do and was struggling with a Baby Shower card, so I decided to do my own little drawing and colour it in...
 Coloured with Promarkers and lots of glitter.

Just had to add some bunting and buttons...

I'm hoping to find time to do some more doodles and drawings that I can use on my cards and maybe draw something that could be turned in to a stamp...Will have to look into that.
Hope you like it!
I couldn't find any challenges that this would fit in with so if anyone sees any...
Please let me know.
Spent yesterday cardmaking so will be photographing and blogging them soon.
We're on half term now so will be out and about..
.maybe starting some Christmas shopping...Yikes!

Oriental Wild Rose Mia

Hello again...
Welcome back to my little blog!
So pleased it's the weekend. I am on a nice night out tonight...round a girlfriends with about 6 or 7 others for nice nosh and a few drinkies!

Then looking forward to a lie in tomorrow...
But first a little bit of craftiness and Wild Rose Studio Mia in Kimono...

 Coloured with Promarkers.

 I found these gorgeous little clay roses in my local button shop selling for 20p a bag and there are plenty for quite a few cards...

 I made a sort of frame so that they looked like climbing roses...

They are so beautiful and the colours match my WRS papers as well.
 A couple of challenges...

I love Promarkers...Anything Goes
Lets Create and Craft...Add Dimension

Have a lovely weekend and pop back soon...

Bella the Elephant...

Good Afternoon.
Hope alls well with everyone this weekend.
I am taking it easy with some crafting and blogging after a busy work week where I have just finished a 3 day computer course that well and truly gave me brain ache....
I certainly couldn't sit and work in an office staring at a computer screen all day...Very different from my usual work in the classroom with the kids.
 I have only just managed to work out photoshop!

I had to brightened them up as the afternoon light was rubbish!

 (It's not your eyesight..This looks a bit out of focus..Sorry bout that!)

Bella the Elephant with some flowers...very cute image from Wild Rose Studio...

Coloured with Promarkers, I then used my scallop circle die and my big shot and layered her up onto Lilac and Purple card.

The image and papers match and I even found a flower and glittery brad in my stash that worked quite well...I used a punch for the leaves.

I love ribbon and am lucky enough to live in a village where we have a ribbon wholesaler who attends school fairs and sells them a £1 a roll...(and one of my best friends owns a haberdashers, which also helps)

Some challenges...

Paperplay Challenges...Simply cute
Papertake Weekly...All Creatures Great and Small
Simon Says...Die Cuts/Punches
Creative Inspirations...Anything Goes

So I have left my next card on the table with some glue drying and some gorgeous cute clay roses...

Please come back to visit soon....

House Mouse for Joanna Sheen Blog Hop...

Hello blog hoppers!
Welcome to my crafty corner of the web...
I am very happy to be joining in with the showcase cards as part of 

I was asked if I would make a card using the adorable House Mouse Juggling leaves stamp and this beautiful free download
from Summertime designs.
So many beautiful papers to choose from....I wanted to use them all!
House Mouse is coloured in with Promarkers, all available from the Joanna Sheen on-line shop...
I loved the FALL words and just had to use them being juggled with the leaves...

I used scalloped scissors around the edges of the image before layering up.

I added some punched out leaves around the edges...
and this cute wooden button and twine just underneath the image.
As with a blog hop..start at the beginning on Joanna's challenge blog and follow the instructions.
They are offering super prizes...
Thank you so much for coming to view my card and my blog...and Good Luck to all those who are doing the hop! 
If you are new here, please become a follower and leave me a comment and I will do the same for you!
