Another gorgeous day and i am really getting in the mood for Easter, not only that me and my sister have a trip planned to great Yarmouth, i intend to hit the first craft shop i can find and the girls can play in the sand, it inspired me to send some Easter greetings to those i love and seeing as my sisters birthday lands on good Friday i broke warren out of his shiny plastic, and got to colouring in with my promarkers, added bonus is that little colouring is needed as he is shaded but you can use this shading as a guide to how deep you shade and where to add colour so here he is, i may also do some gift boxes with warren as well he is sooo cute lol

6x6 Organiser

This is a request that i had from my nieces friend who needed an organizer that she could slot a business card in front of and an A-Z for any business cards she make collect from business events, her name is Sarah and she is a therapist she does all kinds of massage and reiki healing.


The pictures are not very clear as the sun was casting shadows which is why I've taken to going outside to take pics from now on as they show up so much better.

Gorjuss Week Ahead

There's nothing like crafting outside especially when you have everything in bloom and it certainly gets the creative juices flowing, my very simple card for today is gorjuss girl a little birdie, which i made for my Sisters birthday on good Friday, she is so looking forward to seeing what i make for her she really appreciates, the time taken on handmade cards so here it is.
I used SU cardstock pixie pink, very vanilla, Choc chip, with some choc chip ribbon, coloured the image in promarkers, i really hope she likes it. Here's the close up.

Picture perfect


I am really pleased with what i produced yesterday, i had a bit of a block and could not find my mojo, so i figured if i started from back to front, it may help at least then i don't have to worry about what image am i going to use, i chose my card stock Basic grey SU,  then i chose my DS papers, and layered them up, then i chose my ribbon and it had to be early espresso SU,  i just love it its so gorgeous, then last came my image and sentiment, and i could not bear to waster my papers so i used leftovers for embellishments, flowers punched out with boho blossoms punch SU.



And here’s a close up of the ribbon detail, a tutorial that i found on you tube, its great for  if you get stuck with a technique just search for it, and have a go.

Sweet Summer


This time of year you always have some rain some shine but, no one cares, because we know summer is just around the corner, and that inspired me to design some thing simple and summery.  Using this Sweet Summer set from stampin up  i created this scene in early espresso ink, and coloured in using my watercolour brush, stampin up old olive and pumpkin pie ink, finished with a length of early espresso one eight inch stitched ribbon

Pretty Tilda


Tilda Fairy


I made this card for Paul's mum and she absolutely adored it( i could say she was drawn to tears) i went all out on this one as i wanted her to know in my own way that she was appreciated, i coloured Tilda in pro-markers, and i did a lot of blending between shades and i so impressed my self, i am still learning as i keep finding new ways to use them, i also added Tilda on the insert, and just stamped her in early espresso ink SU, the ruffled border was punched out with embroidery edge puck and then put through a crimper i then split the cardstock apart and made two ruffled borders, hope you like it don't forget i don't mind sharing these tips with you so leave a comment.

Wild rose studio

kiramumcar (640x480)kira (1) (640x480)
This card was made using Kira with flowers from WRS, she is just so easy to colour what ever your medium, i myself always use my promarkers, i dont know what i would do without them, the background papers are DCWV, the top part i ran through the cuttle bug using seeing spots folder and then rubbed down with a file, i was really pleased with this as i very rarely use spring colours in card making they tend to be saved more for scrap books, but hey sometimes i can surprise myself, and do something out of the comfort zone hope you like it please leave a comment.
