Today I have a card that I would like to enter into the following challenges:
I have used a 6 x 6 white scalloped card base, the papers I think are Back To Basics, I have mounted both the papers and image onto pastel textured card, I added faux stitching to the corners then added some flowers, the image is a Penny Black Slapstick stamp that I have had for a few years I coloured the image with Copics then doodled a frame.
I thought you might like to see the latest picture of Jessie and my Mum who will be 94 this year.  They love each other so much Jess brings my mum so much pleasure and happiness.
I want to thank you for visiting and for leaving comments they really do mean the world to me.

Hi all, yesterday I told you that i had made some Easter/Spring cards for my mum well here they are I do hope that you like what you see.
For my first two cards I have used the same stamped image but different colour ways, the top card is a purple and green colour theme even though the flowers look blue they are definitely purple I used Spectrum Noir's to colour , the stamp I have had for quite a few years, the base paper is Bearly Mine gingham, I have dry embossed the large circle, added gingham ribbon, flower pearls and stamped sentiment.
On my second card I changed the colours to pink and green, added buttons and grosgrain ribbon. 
I would like to enter my flower cards into the following challenges:
My next two cards feature Messy Rabbit once again they are stamps that I have had for a few years but now rarely use.  I have coloured them with Copics, the papers are a mixture from my stash, I have added stamped sentiments, and other embellishments. 

I would like to enter my 2 Messy Rabbit cards into the following challenges:
I would like to enter my Medallion Cross card into the following challenge:
For my final card I have used a wood-mounted stamp which is quite large it is a medallion type cross, I stamped and embossed the cross four times with SU Black Embossing powder I added a touch of extra colour with a promarker then added glitter, I rarely use peel offs but I added some gold border ones then some butterflies, card candy, roses and sentiment. 
Many thanks for visiting I hope that you have enjoyed looking at my cards, I will see you soon, until then have a lovely day

Christmas cards

Hi all, I have a couple of cards that I have made for the Christmas Card Club, the first one should have been posted a couple of weeks ago but as I am not feeling my usual self I am way behind.
Snowballs was the theme chosen by Sue, I used a copyright free image from the web and added Cosmic Shimmer Silver Glue, the star holographic card is ages old I have added some pearls, twine and sentiment.
My second card is based on the theme 'Use Kraft Card' this was chosen by Clare.  I have used Papermania 6x6 Kraft card base which I embossed with a SU snowflake stamp the embossing powder is called Peanut, this is the first time I have used wet embossing for a very long time.  The image is Marci a La La Land Digi image, I have coloured her with promarkers, the sentiment came with the image.  I used some copper coloured glitter card and two Marianne die cut trees in SU Kraft card then added Tulip Blue Pearls in a bottle. 
I want to apologise for not being around in blogland for some time but things are just not going right for me at the moment, crafting has become quite difficult for me.  I want to thank my lovely loyal supporters for visiting and leaving me comments they really help so much.
I have noticed that a lot of people are joining Bloglovin, I have the badge at the top of my blog if you feel that I am worthy of following, I have transferred all the blogs that I follow over to Bloglovin so I think that I am still with you, I am afraid I do not quite understand it all.
I will be posting again tomorrow with a selection of Easter cards that my mum asked me to make, once again I am a bit behind making them but she was pleased with what I came up with, so until then have a great weekend.
