Another Vintage Image Card

I couldn't resist this sweet image from the Digital Two from Tuesday site
she is such a cutie!

Free Vintage digital images

I found a great site for vintage digital images - Digital Two for Tuesday. They provide 2 vintage digital images that are free to download every week and there are some very cute and whimsical images! Lots of sweet little children, ladies, and fairies. I love this one of 2 best friends and couldn't wait to use it. I've just left it blank for one of those occasions when you just need a general card. Dawn

Craft Stamper Doggie

This sweet little doggie is the free stamp from this months craft Stamper mag and I have teamed him up with the Sugar Nellie stamp that I got when I subscribed to this magazine. They are both coloured with promarkers and I used a purple glitter sakura pen to add some dots and colour his flower. I thought I would also mention that Pollycraft have a fab Sweet Dreams springtime retro set out and a chance to win them here

New Jayne Netley Mayhew Wren

My mother loves wrens and she collects these china birds, so when I saw this new stamp by Jayne Netley Mayhew I just had to have it! Her birthday is in March so I have a bit of time to experiment with it before I make her birthday card.

Good Luck Cat Card

This beautiful 'Kitten against the Wall' stamp arrived today from a Passion for Stamps , it was a half price bargain ( and arrived very quickly) and I could not wait to use it! I used my tan promarker pen to colour the the cat I'm also going to try him with grey, ginger and white colour schemes to see how he comes out. Ruth at a Passion for Stamps has got some new digi stamps out and I am very tempted to get some - I love her images.

Little Issy Skipping Card

I love this free digital image called Little Issy Skipping. You can find her and many others on Wendys Digital Doodling blog. I've coloured her with promarker pens and layered her using My Minds Eye 'pretty please' spring papers that were free with Cardmaking & Papercraft Magazine

Fishing Birthday Card

Its my bosses birthday soon and yes, he is a keen

fisherman who just loves to go off to some remote

stretch of water and fish all day, its his way of

de-stressing - like card making is for most of us!
I put the fishing embellishments against an
embossed background ( cuttlebug d'vine swirl)

I've been Scrapbooking Today !

Although card making and ATCs are my favourite crafting hobbies, today I felt the urge to do a bit of scrapbooking. Most of my previous layouts have featured my children so I thought today I would find some photos of me and my Mother to do instead. On Boxing Day all the family descended on my house but they all had to bring a home made hat to wear. Mums is made from a blue plastic colander decorated with tinsel and Ipswich Town Football Club baubles. She has has a football season ticket for over 35 years so is a true blue supporter!
The other layout is me with my recent haircut decorated with lots of flowers, ribbons and sparkle!

Disney Princess Birthday Card

AS I have an 8 year old daughter, I often have to make cards with her for the birthday parties she is invited to. Disney Princesses are very popular and always go down well. This Snow White sticker was free with one of her comics but she looks good layered against some bright spring tulip papers doesn't she!

What a Cheeky Monkey!

Isn't this such a cute little upside-down monkey! He was a free digi stamp and I thought he would make a great card for my little nephew. He was coloured with promarker pens and layered against a scrap piece of green patterned paper against plain orange to make it stand out a bit more! Finished off with a die cut flower and leaves

Joanna Sheen ATC assistant

I recently bought Joanna Sheens ATC Assistant CD-rom for the bargain price of £5!

It is packed full of lovely vintage images, backing papers and lots of templates.

These are some of the first ATCs I have made with them, I'm sure I will get lots of use and inspiration from it
