Hogs and Kisses

Hello lovely peeps

For today's card I've used the pig from the Oddball Farm Animals stamp set by Stamping Bella, stamped with grey Memento ink and coloured with promarkers. The sentiment is from Down on the Farm Sentiments stamp set (also SB), stamped onto a scrap of First Edition paper.

I would like to enter my card in the following challenges:-
Passion For Markers Challenge  #733 monochrome
As You Like It Challenge Favourite: cute or floral and why - I love cute characters, they make me smile. Plus they're usually easier to colour than flowers!
Creations in pink #56 AG in mainly pink
Double D Challenges Cute little animals

Thanks for stopping by,

Sabrina Loves the Spa

Hello lovely peeps, I hope you are well.

Just popping in to share the Mother's Day card I made, using "Sabrina Loves the Spa" by Stamping Bella. I stamped her onto watercolour paper and coloured with Distress Markers before fussy cutting.

Jungle Trellis

Hello lovely peeps

This is my second trellis card, heavily inspired by Cornelie at the current Lift Challenge.

As there are a lot more embellishments on this one the trellis was starting to bow inwards a little, so I reinforced the front of the card with some acetate

Simple Trellis Card

Hello lovely peeps

We made trellis cards at our cardmaking club this week, inspired by the current Lift Challenge.

I love them. They are so effective but easy to do and I have loads of ideas (I'll be back with another one later when I've finished it).

I Sea

Hello lovely peeps, I hope you are well.

It was a gorgeous day here yesterday (if a bit cold still). Makes me hopeful that Spring is on the way. 

Today's card is another unusual fold/seaside theme, this one is called a Double W Fold. We did these at cardmaking club at the end of last year and they're so effective that I thought this would be an ideal fold for doing my friend's 'big' birthday card.

Coastal Blocks

Hello lovely peeps, I hope you are well. 

I went to a craft show for the first time in 5 years last Sunday and had a great day. Hopefully I'll get a chance to play with my new goodies this weekend!

A rare stamping=free card from me today, with a bit of a coastal theme.
