Click here to go there Please add yourself as a follower on that blog to get the most upto date info as I will probably not update this blog again. Thank you Julie x

Dutch Dare Challenge 46

Why are mens and boys cards so difficult!!! My son Kieran turns 16 on Thursday, where have those years gone, they have flashed by. I am hoping he will grow out of the "Kevin" stage he started the night before he turned 13 in the next year or so. This is the card I made for him, Blue spotty paper is from Dovecraft, image is from the George and Dottie collection at Charmed Cards and Crafts coloured in with my Prismas, the blue buttons are from the blue embellishment pack in this months Docrafts goody bag. Ribbon is from Hobbycraft and gems are from my stash. I have followed this weeks sketch from Dutch Dare Card Challenges so am entering it into the challenge. Thanks for looking x

Lili of the valley Challenge 26

This is the another of the cards I made today, its for my Godson Ryan who is 13. I followed this weeks Lili of the valley's sketch challenge so am entering this card for the challenge. The image is a digital download from The Dottie and George Collection at Charmed Cards and Crafts coloured in with my Prismas, I have just doodled around the edges of the scalloped square cut with my nesties, I am no good at Doodling!!! the dotty backing paper is from Trimcraft, I used a Cuttlebug folder on the backing blue card, letters have been cut with my new Quickutz alphabet that came with my new Squeeze tool which I bought on Saturday. Gems and peel offs from my stash. Thanks for looking x

Creative Inspirations challenge 6

I actually had some time to make a few cards today so here they are. This is my entry for challenge 6 at Creative Inpirations The image has been coloured in with my Prismas, I have ordered some promarkers to see what the fuss is all about but they haven't arrived yet but it will be good to have a play with them when they arrive. The backing paper is from Crafts Too. Sentiment is a stamp from Cuddly Buddly, I have used Papermania brads and flowers from this months Docrafts goody bag and large flower on right hand side is a cuttlebug die and cuttlebug fancy corner die also used on left hand side of image. I think these colours went really well together.
Thanks for looking Julie x

Hooray My new Nestabilities have arrived

Hooray, 3 out of the 4 new nestabilities sets I ordered have arrived today, can't wait to try them out, I'm still waiting for the Peony one to arrive but I was told they should have them in by end of April so hopefully any day soon, I think out of all my crafting stuff my nesties are my absolute favourite. I have also been very naughty and ordered a couple of sets of Promarkers as so many people seem to rave about them, I couldn't make my mind up between Cpics and Promarkers but thought the only way I can decide is to at least try some out. Any advice would be appreciated if anyone can give me tips on the best way to use them. Thanks Julie x
