LOTV Sketch Challenge

Hi hope you are well I have been a little under the weather the last couple of days not sure why but I can guess... a holiday is needed!! I only have to wait just over a week before we go away for a few days.
I have made a quick card this evening with this fabulous sketch by Bev for the LOTV challenge this week there is also a chance to win a set of the new stamps released on the 1st June.

These papers are just gorgeous they are papermania rose garden 6 x6 paper stack which also have couple of pages of some rather sweet dye cuts like the butterfly and greeting on this card.

Hope you all have a fabulous Bank Holiday.

Thanks for looking hugs Sue :o)

Sketch Saturday

I was lucky enough to get myself a set of H&S stamps from eBay I have been very good recently but I just couldn't leave them behind as they go so quickly.

Last night I just wanted to play and make a card with them and when I saw Sketch Saturday I knew it was perfect.

She has been coloured with pro-markers and the papers are last years SU sadly they are nearly all gone now and I am so sad :o(

Sorry the picture isn't brilliant not much light here again tonight.

Thanks for looking Sue :o)

Week 51 PFP Strawberries and Cream

Today it is my turn to choose the theme at PFP and I have chosen Strawberries and Cream... when I decided on this just after Christmas I was looking forward to the summer and the thing I love most about the summer are all the beautiful soft fruits to eat.

Sadly the summer still seems a long way off at the moment I am still wearing winter clothes and putting the heating on in the evening whatever happened to the saying "don't cast the clout till May is out" more like never cast the clout!!! .

I did get my first British strawberries today which does seem rather appropriate, our sponsor this week for the digi work shop was Tracy from "Fred She Said".
When I told Tracy my theme she said she would draw me a special image and here she is "Emma in the Strawberry Patch" isn't she gorgeous.

If you are interested in how I coloured her pop over to the weekend workshop where you can see my tutorial.

This theme is open to interpretation so you can use the Strawberry and Cream colour theme or you can use images with a Strawberry theme.

The papers are DCWV from the Sweet Stack and the charm and flowers from my stash.

Hope you have fun and thanks for looking Sue :o)

Today's The Day

No I am not talking about the General Election today's the day my dear SIL becomes a pensioner.
Now I have to say I am a little jealous...I will be 64 before I can pick up my pension, I miss the 60 yr old retirement age by a couple of years!!! so I have an extra 4 years of work ohh joy... if I still have a job after today's other big event!! here I go again always the optimist!!!

Back to SIL and here is the box card I made her.

This little box card will be filled with girly bits and pieces and of course one drawer will have some money in so she can treat herself.

Sorry the picture isn't very good the drawer got pushed in!! but it does fit nicely IRL

This card was made very quickly last night as DS hadn't bought his auntie a card nothing unusual there but I thought her birthday should be remembered by him.... 27 and mum still has to come to the rescue bless!!!


Thanks for looking Sue

Passion for Promarkers Week 50

Well can you believe we are on week 50 of our PFP challenges I can't believe it. I haven't managed to make all 50 challenges I have missed a couple over the past couple of weeks due to pressure at work and then computer probs but I am back this week for Sarah's fab PFP theme which is "Gratitude".

I have used one of my best ever PB stamps I just love these two little mice with their Daisy sunshade.

The papers are SU and the sketch is the fabulous Sketch Saturday Sketch that I used in my previous post I just love it.

Here is the inside of the card and again this is PB stamp.

See you on Friday with my digi tutorial and next Tuesday with my theme.

Thanks for looking Sue :o)

Sketch Saturday

Hi and thanks for stopping by I know I have been MIA again recently but sadly it was computer problems this time.

As I may have mentioned before I work on an Apple Mac and my hard drive became damaged luckily I back everything up on a time machine but first I needed a new hard drive... now I love my Mac and I wouldn't change it for anything but when they go wrong it is an expensive business £189 for a new hard drive fitted and installed ouch that hurt.

I got it back yesterday and downloaded all my data from my time machine ooh I do love my baby!!!

This week at Sketch Saturday there is a fabulous sketch and I love it... very me all symmetrical and that's what I like!! I have made two cards today with this sketch the first one is a DT card so I can't show you that until Tuesday...this is the other one I made not for any particular reason just because I loved the sketch.

The gorguss girl is an image sent to me by a friends and the papers are BG Marrakech.

Thanks for looking Sue :o)
