Spring flower

This Hydrangea was a freebie digi image last week over at DZ Doodles, so thought I would post the card I made with it.  I coloured it with Promarkers, cut it with my spellbinder die, layered on to some silver mirri which I had embossed, the base card is Centura Pearl cut around the edges with an MS punch , all finished off with some purple ribbon and pearls.

Transport - CD Sunday DT

Another Sunday rolls around so it's time for a new challenge over at CD Sunday, this week our theme is Transport,  I decided to make a twisted easel card this time using papers and images from MCS Collectors Edition - Mens CD, some gold mirri card and an MS punch for easel stay and used the cut out stars/flowers to decorate, this was a nice quick and easy card to do.

Christmas Tree - Bah Humbug

I haven't been able to enter Bah Humbug for a few weeks, due to being quite ill, (a long and boring story, but I'm slowly picking up again now).  Thankfully I'm into forward planning and my current and recent DT cards were all made well in advance.  This is the first card I have made for weeks, I need to try and get back on track with my Chrissy Cards, so Bah Humbugs theme this week helped me to decide what to do, as my mojo seems to have gone AWOL right now, I do hope it comes home soon.

I printed these papers and images a while ago from Debbi Moores' Let it Snow CD, the card is a small A6 card.  The scalloped edge was hand embossed on my CC Board and hand cut with scissors, oohps don't look too close it's a bit shaky, the gold mirri was corner punched with an MS punch, glitter, ribbon and brads are from my stash.

Pastel/ribbon, Delightful Challenges DT

This week the sponsor over at Delightful Challenges is Really Reasonable Ribbon, they are offering a $10 voucher to the lucky winner.
I made my card a little while back, which is just as well as I'm having a few increased health problems right now and not able to do much.  Hopefully I will be improving again soon, 'cos it's driving me crackers at the moment. But good that I try and get my DT cards made well in advance for times like these.

I haven't checked my blog at all this week, I now see that my last two scheduled postings are not here, how weird, will have to investigate and see where they went, fingers crossed this one works.

Looking at the card again now I think I went a bit OTT with this one, reckon it's too busy, not my usual style,  my mojo wasn't working very well the day I made it.

Apart from my  fabulous Gingerloft digi, I also used a cuttlebug embossing folder and embossed the pink backing card, layered onto mirri, and Centura Pearl base card,  Marianne Designs dies were used for my scrolls, flowers and leaves, the image was coloured using Promarkers and the corners nibbled with a cropadile corner shaper

St Patricks Day CD Sunday DT

Hi there, another automated posting as we are still offline. The only thing I could find on my CD's  a small piece of Clover leaf, well it looks like shamrock !! so I fiddled about with it and  some other  images and made the background paper, all other images are from freebies on and  
The edge of the card was embossed on my CC embossing board and cut around, I used nesties and my cuttlebug for the shapes around the main images, which were coloured using promarkers.

Have a great week whatever you are doing xx
