Happy Ever After

This is for the Penny Black challenge to celebrat the wedding of the year.
I've used my PB stamp With this Ring, which doesn't get a lot of use unfortunately, as it's one of my special favourites.
I've coloured with promarkers
Flowers are a bit of a mix of odd ones & WOC
Spellbinders hearts & gems to finish off.
DP has a lovely pearlescent sheen.
Thanks for a lovely challenge

Happy Easter

This is my very late & only easter card. I've been digging, weeding & raking for the past 2 weeks, so not had any time for crafting.
I had to use this cute bunny from LOTV which my good friend Janice gave me when I visited her.
DP are from K&Co
MS chick & bunny hop punches.
I hope you all had a lovely easter break & ate lots of eggs.
This is for LOTV Challenge

Say it with Flowers

What a busy day And mamaged a card. I've done two classes, yoga & pilates, been over to allotment for a wee while, although it's a bit chilly today, it feel fantastic to have a bit of energy at last.
I also managed this card, with most of the influence being from Kath's class on Saturday, I also managed to purchase the script stamp we used, just a bit nervous of what counts as embellishments, do I have 3, 4 or 7, well I'm sure someone will put me right, just hope it's the all important odd number.

On to the card, I've used,
PB Blush
TH distress inks spun sugar & tattered rose
Hero Arts old letter stamp coloured with grey
Pink ribbon & gems from box
Spellbinders circle for mask

many thanks for any comments ,

First try at CAS Card

This is my first attempt, at one of these CAS cards, which we were making at Saturday's class & second entry in the challenge, using Black/ White plus Green.
This is my second entry in Penny Black at Allsorts challenge.
I've used
PB image Bucket of Frogs
image is coloured with promarkers, I think I used every shade of green I have.
Grass, Meadow,Pear, Marsh, Lime, Soft Lime, Khaki & Mint.
Background is TH crushed olive
Green gems
Stamped background  stamp is Inkadinkado ( which I've dusted off, been lying around for years) using TH shabby shutters.
Sentiment Stampendous stamped in black
Image & border, edged with black,
I did have a button on the bottom left, but wasn't sure if it was too much, just not confident enough of overdoing it, so decided less is more.

Also a CAS challenge has just started on DC & this fits the challenge there.

Cards at Craft Class

These are the cards I made at Kath's class on Saturday at the Papertrie using Hero Art stamps.
They are Clean And Simlple (CAS) cards, which I must admit was a term completely new to me.
I think I'll be making lots more of them.
My first effort is in the next post.

Penny Black at Allsorts

Good evening all on this lovely summer like evening, what a hot day it's been here.
I've had a terrific weekend, spent yesterday in Aberdeen at a craft class with Kath  from the PB DT & Janice amongst some other crafty ladies.
Today I've spent at the allotment & got some veggies & salads planted & did a lot of digging, it felt just like summer & over 90 in th greenhouse, please let this be the start of a nice hot summer, I think we deserve one.
I hope everyone is having nice weather wherever you are.

This challenge is Black/ white plus one other colour, I've chosen red as I do like this combination.
This is PB Fly Away, which I must admit I've had about a year, along with a few others & never used them.
I've coloured with  promarkers & some sakura glaze pens.
DP Is something I picked up in a sale
Ticket stamp
Hero Art sentiment
Border MS punch

Thank you letter from BHF

This is the letter I got from British Heart Foundation for the money I got selling my cards, it's already been to my son's work where most of the cards were sold.
I want to say a big thank you again & to show people on here who donated when I had my blog candy.
