Funny Face

I have finally found the scrapbooking bug! It's one of those things that I keep putting off, all the while buying new stash. I came across this photo of DD whilst having a sort out of my scrapbooking stuff and the idea just popped into my head. It was a sharp learning curve as I had to learn how to find the photos from the PC (DH normally sorts all of that out), crop them and edit them. Really pleased with the result and I hope it will be the first of many layouts.

Forum 'Twins' Challenge

The fortnightly challenge on a cardmaking forum I belong to was Twins - to make 2 identical cards. I managed 2 sets, all using the same image. This is the first time I've coloured the FF bears with Promarkers so it still needs some work! The papers on the first 2 are Cupcakes (Craftwork Cards) with flowers and buttons from my stash and on the second the papers were FF (With Love collection) and the butterfly is a Papermania Dimensions sticker

Penny Black Saturday - Week 85

Something Sweet was the challenge for this week on Penny Black Saturday and I think this image fits it perfectly. The image is Penny Black and has been coloured with Promarkers, paper is from the Cupcakes collection (Craftwork Cards I think), the sentiment is an Inca stamp. Hopefully I'm going to be just in time for this challenge but if it's not in time at least I've made a start on Easter cards!

Belated Happy New Year

It's been such a long time since I've updated my blog with anything - Christmas and illness got in the way and more recently I've been sorting out my craft room (I use the term loosely as it's really the conservatory/dining room/children's playroom!).

Anyhow, I have been making some cards inbetween so here's a few to keep you going

Hopefully that's me back in the swing of things and ready to catch up with some challenge blogs again.
