Mulberry wood

There doesn't seem to be much time for crafting just now so here's one from earlier in the year that I never blogged.

Papers and sentiment are Lili of the Valley and the image is a stamp from the Crafters Companion Mulberry Wood range which I have coloured with copics. Pearls are from Hobby House.

Thank you for visiting

Still on the wedding theme

I thought I would share the guest book which I made for my sisters wedding earlier this year.

So this is it, images are all drawn by my now brother-in-law and were printed onto Bazzill kraft card and bound with my bind-it-all, the front cover has a clear acrylic cover over it hence the sheen.
This is one of the the inner pages which I printed the image on in watermark style.
and this is the last page which is a pocket page with a bit of a lens cap in view for added interest

This shows it better as I have put a bit of card in to demonstrate the pocket ( I think this must have been one of the showing for approval photos which I took lol!)
Thank you for visiting, hope you enjoyed seeing this.

Ribbon and flowers are from Lili of the Valley
Cardstock is all Bazzill Bling

Sorry but I can't remember where the Congratulations stamp came from.

Sketch and stash 118

Here's the card I have made for this fortnights Sketch N Stash Challenge

I made it at the weekend but am only just posting it as it was for a birthday earlier in the week and I am not sure if the recipient visits my blog.
Really enjoyed making this card, the sketch is interesting and I used my favourite colours (as well as the recipients I think) and a Sarah Kay image too. It is a decoupage image which I bought last year at Donington from Pinflair.
The papers are LOTV Nitwits (just for a change), cardstock is Bazzill, brads came from Dovecraft and along with the flower would be classed as neglected stash, corners are Cheery Lynn and the sentiment is a Paula Pascual stamp set and another favourite.
Oh and if you look carefully you may just spot a teeny bit of ribbon.

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

Photo inspiration

The theme over at Allsorts Challenge blog this week is photo inspiration and as it's been a pretty busy week I am entering by the skin of my teeth.

Here's the photo
Photo Inspiration  - 3rd August

and here is my card

I took my inspiration from the bright colours, the squares and the black background oh and the hearts.
I did try to do more squares but couldn't get the measurements quite right.
So to the supplies
Papers are Echo Park Summer Days, couldn't use anything else really
Hearts were cut with a sizzix die and the sentiment is from Craftwork Cards.
I think that the black card is Coredinations

There's been a complaint............

........ just a small one, about the lack of posts so thought I would fiind something to put on to keep up with demand and here it is

It's a boy card which I made in January, quite CAS with an image from Lili of the Valley coloured in Bradford Bulls colours and a few American Crafts papers in the background.

Thank you for visiting, I have a challenge card to post soon but will do that when my visitors have gone
