Last Day 2 Hop

Hi Folks,

Well today is the last day to hop with us at Freshbrewed Designs so dont miss out on the wonderful new release Stamps Heather has to offer, Beautiful Bride and Baby Bump.
As many of you know my Darling Daughter loves to craft but has been quite poorly for the last 2 weeks so when she saw these stamps, she knew she wanted to make a card but wasnt well enough, so we came to a comprimise, Macka would colour the image and Glitter it, I would make up the card!
So this is our team effort, All papers and Embellies were also chosen by Macka, Heres our card using Beautiful Bride..
We decided to decoupage the skirt of her dress to make it bulk out, Macka then glittered the skirt,Veil and Flowers using Stickles.
Papers/Chipboards are from an old Create and Craft set.
Lace effect ribbon trim is from Wild orchid Crafts
Gems are from stash
Mediums are Promarkers
So hoped u like our joint card, if you want to join the hop full details and starting point are Here.
And for my card using Baby Bump go HERE.

                              Happy Monday Everyone

Sweet Wendy image

Hi all

Sorry i havent been online, Macka ended up in hospital, at first we thought she was just sick with the excitement of her birthday but after 24hrs of being really ill we took her the emergency doc's, it turned out she had gastroenteritus and was dehidrayted, so after 4 days in hospital she finally came home, feeling a bit sorry for herself and wanting her mummy with her constantly i had no time to craft and had to do with colouring images, so i now have many images needing to be put on cards, and yes i was withdrawing,lol..
So i am here today with one of those images made up, Its the wonderful Wendy Wedding digi stamp by the fabulous Sherri Baldy, I just love this image and new it was perfect for a friend of mine who is getting married and wanted a card for his Bride-To-Be.
I used the fabulous Nitwit papers as they have such lovely words on them..
Flowers-Wild Orchid Crafts

So hope u enjoy my card, now Macka is well i will be back again tomorow with another card, Have a fab day everyone..

Its another birthday!!

Hi Folks
Well i am just stopping by wth a couple of cards i have made over last couple of days, I know i havent been on much but i am super busy, its my youngest daughters birthday tommorow, she will be 5 so i have been busy getting cards done and trying to sort out their presents, i ordered some stuff for her and i got an email today telling me ooh sorry we have taken your money but its out of stock, WHY???
Why take the money then wait 10days before telling me its not in flamin stock, so i am screwed, no present for her, so now i am very upset with them, not only that its Macka's birthday monday, luckily i already have her present but it wont go down well with Tai, u know how kids are if one gets and the other doesnt so i dont know what to do, wait and give them presents together or run and hide lol..
Well nothing i can do now so fingers crossed Tai doesnt divorce me,lol
Anyway my 1st card is a Kriss Kross card, I had seen these about but after popping over to a lovely lady Teresa's blog i thought i would try it myself, So here it is
I decided to keep it quite clean and not too many embellies,  As its for Macka's birthday card and she is terrible for pinching things off cards lol,
i used the stunning Hearts & Roses lil Raggamuffin from Scrapbook Stamp Society, by the fabby artist Sherri Baldy.
The papers were from a set i got at The Range, and The tag is from Magnolia.
I coloured her in with copics, heres a closer look at this cute lil Doll.
The main card slips inside the kriss kross envie, And the back of the card as a panel to write on and a birthday sentiment, which i should of photographed too really..

I would like to enter this card at;-

Next up is a card i made for a very worthwhile challenge, This charity is very close too my heart as i lost someone very dear to me of Breast cancer so this is one of my favourite blogs, If you havent already please pop over to Link up for Pink as show Celeste and Yolie some love.
So, they are doing a little challenge, to make a card reminding your ladies to Get yourself checked..
Yolie has even offered 4 free digi stamps to help you get started.
I chose to use the sentiment with the Saturated Canary free digi Krista offered a while back.
So heres my card..
Papers are from The Range, Flowers are from WOC, Ribbon from Stash
Me and Macka have also made magnets and bookmarks too give out to all those special ladies in our life so they dont forget, I will get them photographed and put up on Her blog.
