Happy Friday

This time over at The Crafters Cafe, the theme is "Sewing real or faux"

We have 2 wonderful sponsors 




My first card uses the RSD image A Stitch in Time


I used some pattern paper from Papermania Wood collection and added real sewing along with my WRMK Sew Easy tool. The image is coloured with Copic markers and I added a little Distress ink in Vintage Photo to the edges.  The sentiment is from GKDesigns mini stamp set - Time. The embellishments are from Spellbinders - Dear Old Dad.

My next 2 cards are both images from Sheepski Designs



This time I used faux stitching in the form of GKDesigns In Stitches stamp set, and after colouring the image with Copic markers I cut it out with MFT - Zig Zag Stitched Squares. I then added a little Tumbled Glass Distress ink to the edges. The Butterflies are Tattered Lace - Beauteous Butterflies.


Again some faux stitching, this time using Lawn Fawn's Puffy Cloud Boarders and also the sentiment Scripty Hello

Outlawz Greetings Challenge

Happy Monday

Wow what a whirlwind of a summer we have had, between house & garden renovations, (well one thing lead to another) and not having loads of cash to call in the workmen, then it is between me and my wonderful hubby to do it all ourselves. I have also been dealing with some family illness that has kept me travelling up and down the country the last few weeks, so life has been to say the least a little on the mad side since I was last here.

Ok enough of me and on to the card, this week over at The Outlawz Greetings Challenge  the theme is Back to School and our wonderful sponsor is


My card uses the image Lollipop Lady


I used Spellbinders Elipse to cut & frame the image and a Crafters Companion 5x7 Downton Abbey embossing folder for the background. The flower and leaf was from my stash and the sentiment was created by me.
