Sweet Elephant

Evening all,
Well hasn't the weather been wonderful lately! I 've been getting out in my garden and tending the flowers as it's been too hot to craft in my little room. Saying that I have got a card I managed to finish off first. I would like to enter it into a couple of challenges.
Crafty Sentiments # Monochromatic Cards
Digital Tuesday Challenge #117 Flower Power

Yes it's another stepper card and it's coloured with Cool Grey Promarkers. The sweet little elephant Ella is a digi from Pink Gem Designs and these hand made paper flowers are from a die set from Marianne. The sentiment is one from Sentiments 4 You.
I hope you like.

Well I have been busy busy busy! I really am getting my mojo back and enjoying making cards again. This time I have made a card for my DT over at DO IT WITH DIGI'S.
 I really had fun as I haven't made a stepper card for such a long time as well as colouring in with one colour. I would normally be tempted to make the card in brown tones but I thought this time I would have a go at greys!

Another Challenge begins - thank you to everyone who took part last time :)

The theme this time is:


we want to see shades of one colour only (with the exceptions of hair and flesh)

this time we are sponsored by


The winner of this challenge will get a free membership to my Lynnes web shop entitling you to 10% of every order and be in with the chance of winning prize draws and having access to "Members Only" events where you will receive special offers

  As you can see I used a Kenny K Download Digi image. I coloured in with the Cool Grey's Promarkers and the flowers and leaves were cut from a Marianne Creatables Die, LR0162, brought at Crafts 4 You. The sentiment is from a set of digi sentiments from Sentiments 4 You

Myth & Magic # 4

I'm supposed to be doing the ironing right now but I wanted to get this card done before the challenge closed. I borrowed this gorgeous dragon stamp off a friend and coloured him with Promarkers. The sentiment is from Sentiments 4 You. I think he looks great on this twisted easel. I would like to enter my card into some challenges.

A Bit of Red

Ooo I'm back again with another card today before I go off to work. I would like to enter this card into a challenge.

Totally Tilda Challenge Blog # 24 Tilda In Red White and Blue

Well off to work I go. I hope you like it. thankyou for looking.


Today I have a very sweet bookmark to show you. I saw them on Splitcoast stampers and really had to have a go and they are so easy to make too.
 All you have to do is cut 2 x 4" squares, mark at 2" along two sides of one of the squares then scoreand fold over to make a triangle point. With the other square, cut it into two triangles and stick one of them across the back to hold the flaps down. Turn the bookmark over and decorate to your hearts desire. Go on...give it a try!
 I saw a challenge over at Crafty Catz Weekly. So here is my little creation. I would like to enter it into this challenge.

I hope you like it and have a go at one of these too.
I'll be back later with more cards.

Easel Card

Today I have a cute card to show.
I would like to enter it into a few challenges.

Passion For Promarkers # 103 Pink and Brown

I hadn't had a go at making one if these types of easels yet but decided to do it in this card. I like the way it adds interest to your card in an instant without any difficulty. Of course I used my Promarkers to colour the Whiff Of Joy image in, it reminds me of when I've been to an Ally Pally Exhibition, lol. The ribbon on the front of the base was also coloured with my Promarkers as I didn't have the right colour. The sentiment is from a set of digi's that I brought from Crafts 4 You  which reminds me....I need to go shopping there for some new bits.
Anyway see you soon when I'm back with some more cards.
