it's party timeGood Evening All

This week I have been asked to produce some cards for a lady who turns 90 in July, and this is one of them.  I thought I’d throw a funny one into the mix, just for the hell of it 😀 I like to offer a variety!

So, I’ve used an 8×8 base card, the current Mojo Monday layout and the design papers are all Portobello Road.  The image and sentiment are from the “Wrinklies” stamp set by Dimensions Fourth and I’ve coloured the partying wrinkly in with my Promarkers to match up with the design papers.

Anyway, short and sweet tonight, really must do my ironing, need my uniform for tomorrow! But I shall endeavour to be back again soon




The Great British Weather… 04/05/2012

Good Morning All

This is probably a little bit of a cheeky card, but when I read the challenge over at CupCake Craft Challenges, the Great British weather is what sprung to my mind! 😀

So I dug out my Dimensions Fourth Wrinklies Beach Party stamps and set about making this card.

I’ve layered up the background paper, which is from the Portobello Road collection, onto some red card from my stash.  The images have been coloured using my Promarkers, as has the background on which they sit.  I stuck with using red, white and blue to keep in with the british theme.  The sentiment is also from the Wrinklies stamp set and the buttons are from the Portobello Road collection.

I was going to send it to my brother, for his birthday on Monday, but I didn’t complete it quick enough to get it in the post, so I’ve had to send him a different card!

Bit short and sweet today, but I’m off to see “The King and I” musical with some friends this afternoon, so best go and get ready!

Have a great weekend

Back again soon
