Happy Fathers day

Happy Fathers Day!
Good Afternoon (Only just missed Morning!) I have been busy this morning packing jars and glasses into boxes from the Kitchen in preparation for losing my kitchen shortly when the extension gets knocked through... dreading it!! But I do still have my craft room (for now at least...) So as its Fathers Day - here is the card I've made for my Dad using Worlds Best Dad from Dr Digi. And he does love his tea - as do I. In fact its been at least 30 mins since my last cuppa so I better go and get the kettle on! 


I used a kraft base and covered it with patterend paper from American Crafts Amy Tangerine cut and paste paper pad. I coloured Dad with copics and stuck him down with 3d foam. I then added some scattered around.I hope you like him - he's no too fussy and fairly simple - Perfect for my Dad Ha!!
Have a lovely day,

Golden Wedding Anniversary - ADU


Hello -  We have a new challenge starting today at All Dressed Up and as always its an Anything Goes theme as long as you use an ADU image.
Now I have used this image called Happy 50TH to make an Anniversary card for my Parents as it was there Golden wedding anniversary on the 8TH June. To celebrate they hired a house in the Peak District for a week and we all went along for a few nights. We did lots of walking and eating and we were really lucky as the weather was lovely the whole time so we were able to get the dogs tired out! 



I mounted the image onto Gold card and used a Sharpie to  colour the greeting. I coloured the flowers with copics and added some gold gems. I also coloured some peels off gold to add the wedding anniversary. 


This next photo shows the dimension with the Butterflies a bit better.The butterflies are from the poundshop and I added a little gold pen detail.

I hope you will all join in the new challenge and share your All Dressed Up creations.

Hey There Lil' Cowboy (TPS)

Morning - this weeks new challenge at The Paper Shelter 
is just beginning and the theme is ribbons and buttons. Ive used an image called Lil' Cowboy 
and he was real fun to  colour. I hope you don't mind me using Die Cut buttons but these little stars just seemed to match the image and the demin, wood and Gingham. 

I used Copics to colour the image and the stamp is from a Paper Smooches set.
I hope you will all join in the challenge and show us your fab creations!

Going on a bug Hunt

Morning - Today there is a new challenge starting at I Love Promarkers and theme is "BOYS CARDS" The sponsor is Bugaboo digital stamps and I have used  Knobbly knees - Boy bugs.


I coloured the image with Promarkers - picking out the colours from the bug background paper which is from Bella Blvd Bug Explorer paper collections
I cut some jars out from the same range of paper and covered these with glaze so they look like glass. This is definately a card for a Bug Hunter!

I hope you like this card and will play along with the challenge

Dads Donuts

I've just got back from a lovely few days in the Peak District - we did lots of walking, eating and drinking but there was hardly any wifi so here I am with my post - a little later than usual!
I've used Caffeinated Craig to make a Fathers Day card (Which is next week...so you need to get your images soon!)


Right I've got to go get ready as I'm off to a concert tonight in the Forest and need to get my picnic organised (I say picnic... I mean crisps and wine!!) Enjoy the rest of your day,

All dressed up June New Release

Hello -
Im sorry I am late in posting these cards here on my blog as they have been live on the All Dressed Up Challenge blog since the 7th as thats the day when we first showcase the gorgeous new images.

This first new image I got to play with is Lets Fly a Kite 
and I teamed her up with a Mft Hugs die and the cloud stitched boarder die. The papers are both from Doodlebug and I coloured her with Copics, 

The second image I used was Sight seeing in Paris and I wanted it to look like a polaroid picture in a frame so I used aMFT die and used Doodlebug gold arrows to add corners. I also added some Paris skyline washi tape. I added a Eiffel tower embellishment which I coloured with gold pen and I used a greeting from Pebbles with Happy Birthday in gold.

Pop over to the challenge blog and the facebook page to see the other new images and what the amazing  DT have created with them.

Hen Do!

Morning  - I was at my Sister-in-laws Hen party last week and so I coloured this image up, which is called Bachelorette Babs. It just shows Dr Digi has an image for every occasion
I kept the card fairly simple and covered a base card with My Favourite things Black & white basic stripes and two stripes of Washi tape.
I added a few gems and some hearts and lips from some stickers I got on sale at Paperchase.
I used florescent pink copic to colour the image along with grey copics.

Right thats all from me for now... make sure you visit the website to see all the latest image and there are many perfect ones for your Fathers Day cards!
