Fly By

Hello All
Just thought I'd pop by with one of this weeks makes ready for a craft fair next weekend.
I have used the lovely new Corner Garden stamp, which I have coloured with ProMarkers this time round. Then I have added a penny slider with one of the butterflies from the Papillon Potpourii set, so it could fly over my flower patch. This is one of my favourite type of cards, as I love cards that are more than just a flat picture.
I would like to enter my card in the following challenges;
Come and Get It - things with wings
That Craft Place - summery colours
A Gem Of A Challenge - it's summer time
Paper Pretties - birthdays
Bunny Zoe's - summer colours
Craft Your Passion - summer fun
Dream Valley - flowers
Thanks for stopping by
Hugs Sharon

Hello Everyone
I must start my post once again apologising for my lack of blogging, I really don't know where time goes and I can't believe it's been a month since I last posted - slap my wrists.
Todays card is one from last weeks class using the new Boys Will Be Boys stamp set, which I confess I am in love with. I originally bought it just for the 'lego' bricks as my two boys are addicted to it, thinking I'd never use the others, but how wrong I've been. The background on this card was made made by stamping all the images multiple times and cutting them out with the hexagon punch and randomly sticking them together like a collage. I even love the font of the sentiments of this set, it all just works.
I would like to enter my card in the following challenges;
Quick Quotes - repeat yourself
Simply Create Too - monochromatic
That's Crafty - this is a mans world
4 Crafty Chicks - lets get masculine
Crafter's Cafe - square cards only
Crafting For All Seasons - monochromatic
Fab 'n' Funky - for kids
Thanks for popping by

Regarding Dahlia

Morning All
Well it's a lovely sunny day here in Essex, and I've finally got a couple of days off work, so I thought I'd pop by with one of my latest creations using the Regarding Dahlia stamp set. I thought I'd leave the sentiment off, and then it is the sort of card you could send for any occasion from sympathy, birthday, thank you or just because. As I inked the stamp up, it seemed to cry out to be layered up, so six layers later, here's the result.

I would like to enter my creation in the following challenges;
Creative Moments - anything goes/use one flower
Deep Ocean - Lots of layers (6 in flower)
Party Time Tuesday - anything goes
Creatalicious - monochrome
TokBobok -monochrome
Eureka Stamps - monochrome
Thanks very much for popping by, and I'll see you again soon

Hello Folks
So sorry I have been absent for so long, life just took over,but hopefully I'm back in control and blogging again xx
Today's creation is a favorite style of mine,the box card, ready for a family friends golden anniversary. I have also used some of my favorite stamp sets, Papillon Potpourri, Flower Shop with their matching punches, elegant butterfly and pansy punch and also Memorable Moments. All the stamped images have been heat embossed with gold powder. These cards are such fun to make, and once you get your head around the measurements they are quite easy.

I'm back again :)
This is another card from my Tag-tastic class, this time using the scallop tag topper punch to form a straight forward tag. I have rounded the corners with the corner rounder. The back ground was embossed with the sale-a-bration folder, and the mat has been stamped with the world map stamp. The main image is from zoo review. I have had the set for a while, but have finally cracked it open.
I would like to enter my card in the following challenges;
Paper Crafting Journey - spots and/or stripes
Southern Girls - dots and spots
Crafting For All Seasons - lots of layers
Aurora Wings - monochrome

Thanks for popping by, and see you again soon

Tag-tastic Poppies

Afternoon All
I just thought I'd pop by and share one of the makes from my Tagtastic class last Saturday. The group of ladies made 5 cards (including this one) and a gift box, and all seemed to go home very happy.
This card was made using a portion of the pleasant poppies stamp, with the rest masked out, onto a card tied shut using the fantastic and versatile scallop tag topper punch. I simply love this style of card, and I hope you like it too.
I would like to enter my creation in the following challenges;
Party Time Tuesday- fussy cutting
Crafting From The Heart - anything goes
Fitztown Challenge - lots of layers
Thanks for popping by, and I'll be back with some other makes soon.

Happy Watercolor

Hello everyone.
Just thought I'd pop by and share one of my latest creations with you all.
I finally cracked open my Happy Watercolor stamp set, which I have had since the summer catalogue was launched, and thought I'd better show my lovely ladies what they could do with it before the end of the spring/summer catalogue on 30th June 2014. So this is one of the cards my Tuesday evening ladies will be making. The sentiment is from an old set, but as usually a little bitty punched butterfly had to creep on from the Papillon Potpourri set - I'm not addicted, honest lol.
I'd like to enter my card in the following challenges;
CAS - sketch
Baffies Creative Shop- for a woman
Crafting With Dragonflies - mothers day or a special lady
Scrappers Delights - pretty pastels
Lia Stampz - pastels colors
Craft Your Passion - pretty pastels
Thanks for looking, and if you fancy any of the stamps, click on the 

links and they'll take you to my on line shop.
Back soon, big hugs
Sharon xx
