Todays card was made using Mercy's Tuesday sketch MTSC82 from a few weeks ago. I made this card as a thankyou card for the sponsor of a golf day, the club colours are green & white. The argyle embossing folder is great to use with golf themed cards.
I made todays card for the CCEE Stampers sketch CCEE1030, somewhere in my notes I forgot to write the floral theme. I needed a card for a young male birthday and it was a bit hard to put flowers on it. I guess I will probably be like Tosh and get buzzed for the missing flowers, so I will have to try and make another one soon, it is a great sketch. Supplies: Stamps: Paper Pretties Paper: black,blue,white, DP - SU Jersey Shore Other: Nestabilities, cuttlebug embossing folder - distress stripes, copics
I volunteer for Red Cross in the kiosk at the local hospital, this card was made for our convener. Happy Birthday Neil. I love this image ( I use it quite a lot for male cards) it is so easy to use watercolours. This time I have use water colour crayons instead of my pencils, I think they give the image a softer effect. The I have used is TESC117.
Supplies: Stamps: PSX , Verse - Penny Black Paper: Chocolate,blue,white card Other: Ms arch border punch,brads,water colour crayons,water pen, nestabilites die
I picked this stamp up at a craft show last month, I know several people that are welcoming new born baby boys into the family. I used CCEE 1024 sketch from CCEE Stampers. The image was coloured with copics cutout with nestabilities and sponged around the edges. Some bling was added with pearls.

I am rather late is posting this, during the last week My daughter had her 22nd birthday, this is the card I made. I recycled a past gift wrapping paper and used the sketch from Mojo Monday Mojo146 from a few weeks ago. I don't know if she had ever had a martini but they look great on cards.

Ahh it is good to be able to have something to post at last. The last few months I have been rather lazy only making the odd card, when it was necessary. I even made a card for my niece on the birth of her twins after I gave it to her I realized that I had fogotten to take a photo, a mistake I hope not to make again. July is a busy month with some birthdays, births and a graduation so come back again and you may just see something new. Todays card was the last one I made just on Thursday in fact. It was for my husband's 50th birthday not something that he like to be reminded of. I knew what stamp I wanted to use, as he is a very keen golfer, just like me, but it was not until I saw Mercy's tuesday sketch challenge MTSC83 this week that I knew I had the right layout. I love the way it looks like this guy has just hit the golf ball out of sight. I used my cuttlebug folder to make the dimples on the ball and layered the nestabilities circle dies for the shapes. Supplies: Stamps: Clear stamps, www.sullivans.net Paper: black, blue,white, dp Other: Nestabilities, embossing folder, ms punch, copics
