Vintage camera

Twinkle lane designs  are our sponsor this week,
I got this amazing image - perfect for my Dad!
It's called "Vintage Camera."


I looked up some old cameras on the www and coloured this one with the
 same kind of colours (with my alcohol pens).
I added a camera film diecut - which I have had for years.
A few different papers and an embossed card with stars on, sit in the background -
which I inked around the edges. 
The "smile!" sentiment also comes with the image. I cut this freehand, to look like 
an old camera flash.
I used a die for the happy birthday sentiment...a bargain which I 
bought in The Works - and cut in half. 
A couple of punched gold stars finished this card.

Cherry blossom branch

At Patties Creations this month, with Valentines day drawing near,
Pattie has challenged us:  "love, love, love."


I wanted to make something a little different.. possibly a card i could give to my husband.
I used "Cherry Blossom Branch" image(coloured with my promarkers)
 with a few die-cuts - 'birds' and 'precious heart' - and a stamped sentiment.
I dry embossed the inside edge of both the white piece and the spotty card
and inked all edges with a grey chalk eye.

Playing around...

Over at the Colour Crazy Challenge this time, we are being sponsored by Dr DiGi.
I got the fabulous image called "Solitaire Saul."


I coloured the image with my alcohol pens and used 3d foam on the guy and the back of the chair.
I coloured the cat on the desk to look like our cat, Bella
(As this card will be for my Hubby). 
I copied the cat and made it slightly smaller, and popped him at the guy's feet
- and coloured him like our little kitty, Chester. 
The window is a diecut (on 3d foam) and the scene behind the window is actually
one of my Hubbys pieces of encaustic-art!

I may add a sentiment to this card at some point, but I'm not sure what yet.

I would like to add this into the following challenges:
Crafty Friends - atg - 1 Feb
Southern Girls - atg - 7 Feb

I love promarkers - atg - 3 Feb

New years, Cheers!

Pattie's Creations are back with our January challenge -
"Anything goes."
I have "Cheers to you ladies!" -  a new image, drawn by Pattie...



I thought this image was great, and knew a few people I could make cards 
for with this image on, so made 2 cards! Lol. 
I coloured with my promarkers an used a dovecraft paper pack for the backing papers...
"tea party" i think the papers are called.
The sentiments under the images are from Pink Petticoat -
 who are sadly no longer trading. 
I punched a couple of stars too.  
These cards just make me smile.
