Another one for the boys

Thank you for all the lovely comments on the last batch of cards I posted it was very thoughtful of all of you.

Here's a card for the Papertake Weekly challenge where the theme is Hello Boys.

The image is Lili of the Valley and the papers are Pink Paislee (I think) from an old scrapbooking kit from Sarahs Cards. Kraft card is American Crafts and the lines and dots are from a Studio Calico sticker sheet that was also in the kit.
The sentiment is from a set designed by Paula Pascual.

Thank you for visiting and for any comments you are kind enough to take the time to leave.

.......and finally (for today anyway)

So here's the third challenge card I made and this one fitted the theme at Allsorts Challenge blog which this week is In the Garden.

The image is from the Lili of the Valley Jack, Patch and Puss Art pad, it's actually the coloured one that I 've used but then I have gone over it with some Copics just to change the colour from the greys and whites. The papers are from Lili of the Valley again, this time from the Perfect Pair pad.
The flowers and leaves are a Woodware Stamp, Dotty Daisies I think which I have stamped onto vellum and coloured with Copics then cut out before layering up with a brad.

I haven't put a sentiment on it yet as I'm not sure what it will be used for.

Thank you for taking time to visit and for any comments you might be kind enough to leave

Time to get the dies out

I really enjoyed making this card for the Totally Papercrafts Challenge, to use 3 dies or punches or more.

It's a new baby card for a baby due in a couple of weeks, not like me to be ahead so much at the moment. The main image is another image from the Humphreys Corner everyday decoupage. The papers are from the Lili of the Valley Nitwit Collection Petal Fresh, base card is from Craftwork Cards. Pale blue card is from the American Crafts Pastel set.
Dies and punches used are as follows:
Spellbinders Die D-Lites Medallion 5
Spellbinders mega ovals LG
Memory Box Precious Hearts
Martha Stewart Punch Doily Lace (I think)

Thank you for visiting and such a great challenge.

Sketch Saturday week 262

So now that the blog is up and running again I thought I'd have a go at a few challenges and had a lovely afternoon yesterday working my way through a few. So here's number one, a Fathers Day card for father-in-law based on this weeks sketch at Sketch Saturday. Phew I can still remember how to do a link.

So a simple card using Humphreys Corner decoupage for the main image, backed onto yellow card from thecraft shelf. The paper is Craftwork Cards and a few years old, the sentiment is a Woodware stamp, base card is a 5 x7 Papermania and the oval and star dies are Spellbinders.
