Sketch Saturday #205

Good Morning! 
It's time for a new challenge at Sketch Saturday, and this week we're sponsored by
The Craft Barn Ltd

Here is the sketch
and my card

I actually made this a while ago for my brother's birthday at the beginning of April. He loved it! :) The image is X-Box from Ladybug Crafts Ink, is coloured with Promarkers and the papers are, I think, Pink Petticoat and Pixel Scrapper. Or maybe Shabby Princess...I forgot! I must make a note to make a note of what I use on a card when I make them so far in advance lol! Oh and I decided to sut my circle out so that my papers look like wallpaper and carpet! :)


Ok, ta for looking and can't wait to see your entries!

Less Is More -

Good Morning LIMettes!
Well I have yet another busy weekend ahead of me...Keiran's party is this morning, then we're off to my friend's 30th birthday party this evening! Can't wait!

Anyway, I just had time to make a card for the Less Is More challenge this week and it is

You can use either of the sketches above, so here is my card...

This is made using a Sizzix flower die from Stampin Up!, and I just used a pearl brad in the centre. Very simple...very effective! I must admit, I made the flower on Tuesday when Jen popped round, but I didn't quite know what to do with it, so now it's no longer 'stash'! 

Well thanks for looking...hope you all have a fab weekend! :)

Shopping at 30!

Good evening!
Here is a card I just have made for a friend's 30th Birthday tomorrow. After Keiran's party, we'll be getting all glammed up and heading to her surprise party! Good job she doesn't visit my blog! 

I have kept it quite simple with my Ladybug Crafts Ink image, Promarkers and Papermania papers. I have to say, I quite like it!


Goodnight...I shall be back tomorrow with my Sketch Saturday DT card, and hopefully a Less Is More card before Keiran's Party! :)

A Crafty Raggamuffin!

Hello peeps!
Oooh...3 posts in 3 days! lol!
I have been meaning to make this card for ages now...the image has sat, coloured on my desk, even made a trip to Jen's and got water dribbled on her (hence why she's cut out!), and back again! And now here she is, in all her glory! :)

This is the very sweet Crafty Ragamuffin from Saturated Canary, coloured with some not very well used Promarkers...the colours I mean! Everything else is just from my stash! Oh the ribbon is from The Ribbon Girl I think! 
I am particularly pleased with my colouring of her hair! :)


Thanks for stopping by...Have a fab day! :)

Yo Ho Ho!

Good evening everyone!
Ok no post since Saturday...sorry! I really am so busy with life these days. I am hoping that once the next few weeks are over, I can get back on track somewhat!

So it was my gorgeous, wonderful son Keiran's 4th birthday today! My goodness...where have the last 4 years gone?? He's had quite a fun day, I think! Presents and a picnic before pre-school where he had a tea party and cake, then off to Pizza Hut for tea with myself, his Dad, and his Nana, Grandma and Auntie! Oh and more presents! Bless him! He is fas asleep now, shattered but happy! :)

Anyway, what kind of Mum would I be if I didn't make him a card? So here it is! I was up til almost 10pm last night finishing it though lol!

He is having a Jake and The Neverland Pirates themed birthday party on Saturday so I themed his card to match! I found each of the characters on a colouring page on Google and coloured them with Promarkers. The background is also created with Promarkers. I hung Skully (the parrot) on acetate so it looks like he is flying!


Well I'm shattered too so I'm off to bed...night all!

How Charming!

*if you are looking for my Sketch Saturday DT card, please scroll down*

Good morning LIMettes!
I have an invasion of friends to my house this weekend, so this will be the only crafting I will get chance to do! I cleared out my craft room yesterday, and I'm hoping my mojo is around here's been on holiday and it's time it came back!

Ok so here is a slightly late card for this week's
challenge at Less Is More

I simply embossed a panel using the free folder that came with my Texture Boutique all that time ago, and added a charm to the ribbon...simple!
I'm slightly late because Keiran's Dad turned up to pick Keiran up 10 minutes early, for a change....just as I was about to post my card!
Anyway, have a fab weekend everyone!

Pampered Pets!

Good afternoon all! 
I have had such a busy day today! I had a bunch of errands to run this morning, then I popped in to see how Jen's kitchen is getting don't want to know lol! And then, after chatting to Jen, I decided to have a craft room sort out and clear out! I have got rid of a lot of bits that I've been hanging onto for some time, with no real intention of ever using them lol! So blog candy, blog hops and charity shops beware!

Anyway, here is a card I made the other night and forgot to post!

It is all made using freebie Pampered Pets goodies from a magazine ages ago! I jazzes it up with some Spellbinders dies and 2 handmade flowers, made from 'blind' fabric!


Right I better get to the train station to pick up the first of my guests for this weekend! I have 5 people staying with me from Rochdale, Cambridge, Edinburgh, Madrid and Holland! It's gonna be a great weekend! See you in the morning for my Sketch Saturday DT card and my Less Is More card (hopefully!)  :)

Anything but a card for Crafting for all Seasons!

Good afternoon!
What a miserable, wet Wednesday it is! Keiran and I have finished all our errands this morning, and after I have posted this, we are going to curl up on the sofa and watch Wall-E, and eat crisps and chocolate! Cheaper than the cinema! 

Ok so it's new challenge time at Crafting For All Seasons and this fortnight it's


And we are sponsored by
who is generously offering a $10 gift gift card to our winner!

Here is my offering...

I decided to make clocks for my project as I have had the mechanisms in for months now and not got round to using them! I have used 8x8 mount board and various rub ons and a Martha Stewart butterfly punch. Oh and some gems! 

Some close-ups...

I really enjoyed making these and I shall definitely be making more! 


Thanks for stopping by...of to watch our film now! :)

Fairy Birthday Postcard

Hello everyone!
What a gorgeous Monday...sun is shining, even if it is a little chilly!
Ok, first of all, sorry for not being around much. I have a lot on my plate at the moment, but also, I'm just not liking this new Blogger Interface. I can't navigate it as easily as the old one and I seem to miss an awful lot of stuff! And it's just not as much fun when you can't find things as easily. I will get there I guess...eventually!

Well today is the start of a new challenge over at Ooh La La and this week our theme is

Here is my card...
I have used images and papers from the newest cd-rom, Fairies & Blooms, and the Card Candi and ribbon are from my stash, and that's it!


Cheers for popping by...hopefully I will bback to my usual crafting and blogging self soon!

Pearl Anniversary

Here is another commission card order I got on Saturday at my market...

Obviously, it's for a Pearl wedding anniversary. I created the sentiment in Word, printed it on Jen's laser printer, then foiled it on her Foil It machine. Mounted onto silver Mirri, then finished with Memory Box swirls, white roses and pearls. Very elegant! I also made a box for it, but forgot to photograph that!

Vintage at Ooh La La

Good morning! And happy Monday!
Although it was chilly here, it was a lovely bright weekend here, for the most part :)

So today brings a new challenge at Ooh La La and this fortnight it's



This wonderful image is Powder Blue from Passion For Fashion. The only added extras are the lace, the knot 'clasp' and the pearls. I left it very clean on the front as I wanted the inner to be the main event.

I can't wait to see what you come up with as I need vintage inspiration lol!

Have a lovely Monday!
