Friday Sketchers

I enjoyed this weeks sketch as it is nice and simple. I panic when there are alot of pieces to the sketch as it takes me ages to get everything just right.

I'd already coloured in two of the Mo Mannings images 'Swine Flu' which I think is so funny & really appropriate for the current illness climate!! Although I showed the finished cards to hubbie & cousin who both completely missed the gist of the card!!

Might have to do a bit of market research at work tomorrow & see if I need to change the sentiment. I had thought of putting 'You're not well . . . what a swine!' but changed my mind. Any thoughts????
The papers are from Craftwork Cards chosen because I wanted to make a card that would be suitable for anyone (hopefully it works). The image has been coloured with Copics & the ribbon is Bo Bunny from Click-on-Crafts. The card candy is also from Craftwork Cards. The 'flower' is made by distressing different sized circles cut with nesties. The sentiment is punched using an SU Word Window Punch & the brads are from my stash.

Friday Sketchers & A Missed Challenge!!

I had originally made this card for the Whiff of Joy Challenge which was 'red & cream & one other colour' which in my case was green but the week had run away with me & it wasn't until I went on this morning that I realised I'd missed it!! Luckily I'd also followed this weeks Friday Sketchers sketch so it's not a wasted card.

The image is the cute Herb & Girlfriend from Whiff of Joy stamped on cream card & coloured with Copics. The papers are Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses & the cardstock is SU. The ribbons are SU & BoBunny, the heart charm is from my stash & the chain & ring are from Whiff of Joy. The 'Believe' tag is from QVC & the sentiment is computer printed.

Thanks for looking.

Cute Card Thursday - Midnight Margaritas

This week over at CCT they want to see cards/projects with a drink/cocktail theme. One of the DT had used this Stampinbella stamp which I'd forgotten I had (shame on me!!) so I thought I'd do a 'grown up' Christmas card. I've paperpieced her outfit as I find these Bellas a bit hard to colour with Copics.
I'm not 100% happy with either of these cards & would probably merge the two in some way if I make any more (see how these sell first). My favorite part is the stapled ribbon which I will definately do again.

The papers are Papermania & the cardstock is SU Certainly Celery. The ribbon is BoBunny from Click-on-Crafts & the metal corners are from my stash (they're one of the bits I don't like as they're not very Christmassy!)

I made a batch of these little Christmas puddings last year for a bulk order I got & found them the other day when unpacking my Christmas stash!. The sentiment is computer printed using a new font I found called Kingthings Wrote.

Thanks for looking
