Less Is More - number 2!

Afternoon all!
Well it's a while since I managed to enter the Less Is More challenge twice in one week but I am loving this 
BLING challenge so I think I may be back again later in the week! :)

I'm a bit disappointed with the photo because the card is really dark red but there you go......the sparkle doesn't really show either.
Memory Box die (love them!!) gems, glitter and computer generated sentiment.
Now I really must get on with my DT cards and orders lol!

Lots Of Sparkle! - Ooh La La Challenge #94

Good Morning all!
I have had such a busy weekend, and another busy week coming up too! I'm going to see Bryan Adams on Wednesday at the MEN so I have a few fans staying with me for a few days so may not get too much crafting done...though I really need to as I have my last market before Christmas on Saturday!
Anyway, a Little late but here is my DT card for Ooh La La this week where the challenge is
Perfect and pretty easy for this time of year, don't you think?! 

My image is off Quick Makes For Christmas and so is the solid blue paper......the text paper is a DCW one from Jen's stash! I just matted each onto sliver mirri card, added lots of glitter and finished with my new Star Of Wonder die from Memory Box....they are my new favourite dies company!!


Thanks for looking everyone! :)

Under the Mistletoe

Good evening everyone!
Yes I know it's late but I just got back from the most fab crafting sesh at Jen's with Kim too! I used loads of Jen's stashy bits and made do with what was in scrap boxes! *DISCLAIMER* No papers were printed in the making of this card, or new ribbons cut, or new images stamped!

This is the gorgeous 'Under The Mistletoe' from Lili of The Valley and is coloured with Promarkers. I have then used various bit of red paper, old ribbons, and a button to pull the card together. I finished with a Craftwork Cards Sentiment ( I think......again, Jen's stash!)

Right! Off to bed I a Christening tomorrow! :)
Night all.....

Pink & Black Birthday Wishes

Good morning everyone!
Well yesterday I went on my motorway driving lesson, and boy am I glad I did! It's a touch scary! However, I did it and now I just need to keep at it and practice! There'll be no stopping now!
I have spent this morning making a card for a commission that I have to deliver tomorrow. It is for a lady who was running the stall next to mine on Sunday, for her 50th birthday, from her Husband.

The brief I was given was pink and black and flowery......I think I covered all 3 lol! The paper is from a freebie Kate Knight paper stack. The sentiment was computer printed and the flowers are Prima. I added beads & some free glittery stuff to make the '50' and finished with some black raindrops! The card is 8x8in and although I usually struggle to fill an 8x8 card, this one came together very quickly, thanks to the fab sketch!
Hope you like it!
Ta for looking......more to do now!

Christmas Wishes for Special Friends

Good evening everyone......And especially my newest follower Debbie :)
And good news......I am back online!! :D So let the blogging commence! 
Here is a card I didn't think I was going to get to blog so I am chuffed I can! I made this tonight for my very special friends in Holland......I am really hoping they don't come on here before I get chance to give it them!

I was playing with colouring the other week and I fancied trying something just a wee bit different so here it is!  The image is from Lili of The Valley and is coloured with Promarkers. I chose to do it black and white with a dramatic hint of red for a change. I really love how it came out too!
I have added Polar White Flowersoft, glittery white flock, punched holly leaves and red gems, onto two different embossed papers.
I hope you like it and I hope my friends will too! :)

My first Stampin' Up Card!

Good morning all!
I hope you are well? I am using Kim’s internet to post this card today as mine is down for a while.
This card is my entry into this week’s Less Is More Themechallenge, and the theme is Silhouettes. How gutted was I to read that on my phone yesterday morning knowing I wouldn’t be able to enter it until much later?! Anyway, here is the card……

This is my first card using Stampin’ Up stamps and ink. It is from the Forever Young set and is stamped in Memento Cocoa, but I then coloured over the leaves in Old Olive SU marker. The sentiment is Papermania.

And here are a couple of calendars I made Friday night whilst crafting with Kim……I must have been reading Chrissie and Mandi’s minds lol!

The first is SU and Inkadinkado stamps and the second is a fab Stampendous set called Kitty Silhouettes!
Right, off to the Barlow Institute for a Christmas market......wish me luck!
I hope to get online again at some point this week......

Internet issues :(

Hello to my wonderful followers! And especially my newest one, who I don't know because I can't look! I will be offline for a while as I changed my supplier but they have royally messed it up! So I can only post the most basic of blogs, unless I can get to Jen or Kim's houses. So please don't think I have neglected you! :) I hope to be back soon...I hate phone blogging...I can't upload pictures or even type in paragraphs!  :)  Lizy x

Love from Santa

Good evening!
I haven't done much crafting over the last few days as I decided to give my craft room a big tidy and took 2 days!!
So I need some serious craft time, especially as I have a last minute market to do on 20th November! I have had an awesome day today with a new crafting friend, Kim, crafting for about 10hrs! I managed to get 2 of my commission cards made so that's only about 18 to go lol! Here is one of them......

This one was made using one of the decoupage and Flowersoft freebies from a magazine......can't remember which one though. I stamped the background with Wild Rose Studio snowflakes and used some ribbons from my stash.
Thanks for looking everyone!

Thank you!

Good morning!
Well it's very chilly here in Bolton was ver frosty this morning!
Anyway, I finally sold my first card on Folksy so I thought I would make a little 'Thank You' card to put in the package. I decided on a bookmark style instead of a folded card.

Not fab photos but it's in the post now lol! The swirl is Inkadinkado and the butterflies are Marth Stewart.
See you soon!
