Hi all, today is another new challenge for you at
the theme is
FOR THE BOYS
I have used a lovely fun image that is available for The Paper Shelter store it is called
My Racing Car
I have used papers and card form my stash, I used my EK Success circle cutter for the centre the image I coloured with Graph It Markers then cut him out and mounted him with silicone glue, I then added the sentiment.

I have packed most of my craft stuff away so you may see even less of me.  I have not been visiting as yet due to other commitments but I am hoping to come see you all soon, I have not forgotten you I hope that you will not forget me I know it is a lot to ask but I am really trying to sort so much out.

SPRINGTIME BIRTHDAY

I have made a card that I would like to enter into a few challenges:
For my card I have used a 7" x 7" white pearl card base the papers are Bearly Mine, I found them in a box of papers and thought they suited this image, called Happy Days from Di's Digi shop, perfectly.  I used my EK Success circle cutter for the semi circle at the top and did a bit of faux stitching. 
I added some adhesive wavy border then punched out some butterflies in alternating colours topped with Cosmic Shimmer pink PVA glue, I added the sentiment using my MCS programme before printing off the image which I coloured with Graph It Markers.
Once again I have to apologise for my lack of blogging, unfortunately I find myself in a position where I have to sell my house within the next several months.
There is such a lot to do as most of my stuff will have to go into storage that includes most of my craft stuff, I have made several cards that I have in reserve so that I may show you and enter into some challenges. 
I will be visiting all my lovely regulars who have left me such wonderful comments so once again may I ask that you bear with me.

SPRING GREENS

Hi all, once again we have sunshine although a little chilly but who's moaning....I'm not, lol.  I was thrilled to find out that I won the challenge at Just For Fun the badge is flashing in my sidebar, I also won a beautiful framed photo from the selection shown on Paul Bailey's Blog you can find some awesome pictures HERE
Today I have a card to show you featuring an Aurora Wings image, although I have coloured her green she is not a 'Spring Cabbage' but the flowers are actually roses I have adapted the colour theme to enter into some challenges also on the new Aurora Wings Facebook challenge.
I have used a black 7" x 7" card base the papers are from my stash that I had from Elusive Images, now called Chocolate Baroque, they are quite a few years old but the swirl of the leaves matched perfectly the ones on the image.  I used some new die cuts, Ivy Corners, Butterflies, Dragonflies and Sue Wilson's Lattice border and bow, I die cut everything twice both in black and green card stock, I place the black behind the green to give a shadow effect, I also added some pale green pearls here and there.
The image I coloured with Graph It Markers used my corner punch and then mounted her onto black card stock.
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
I have taken a few photos in different light positions, hope you like what you see.


Many thanks for visiting I do hope that you will come back again soon until then have a lovely week.
