Friday Sketchers #93

Here is my card for this week's Friday sketcher's. This week I decided to buy 3 digi stamps. They are from Spesch Designer Stamps, I couldn't resist this one as my gorgeous Hubby is taking me to see Alice in Wonderland tonight, I also bought The Mad Hatter and Alice to go with the collection. It is the first time I have used a digi image and I was worried that when using distress inks the printer ink would run. But I was being very careful not to put to much water on the lines, and all turned out well I was very happy with the result.
I also managed to use all papers in my stash.

So here is my card!

Here is the view of all the lovely Flowers I used these were all from my local craft shop run by My lovely friend Tracey at Running With Scissors. (RWS)

And another view

Finally the sketch I used for this creation.

Supplies used:
Image - Spesch Desighner Stamps
Papers - all Bo Bunny and Bazil dots (RWS)
Ribbon and Roses - (RWS)
Punches - Retro Flower Large and Leaf punch Large (RWS)
I hope you like it, Thanks for taking the time to read my blog and comment.

I used the sketch to make my MIL's Mother's day card, I had to stop myself piling on the embelishments as I need to post it to Cornwall.
Sorry as you can't see the sentiment very well on the card as the flash caught the glimmer mist. it says Just for you!

Friday Sketchers and Just Magnolia.

A quick short post! here is the card that I am entering in this week's Friday Sketchers following the yummy sketch by Carole.

And I am also entering this card into the Just Magnolia challenge as all you had to do was make a birthday card and with lots of birthdays coming up I thought it was easy!

Again using all my scraps I think the paper is MF (not sure though)
I have used my new Sailor Tilda and coloured with distress inks
Scattered Straw (hair), Antique Linen (Boots and Scarf), Worn Lipstick ( Suit, Laces and Cheeks), Tattered Rose (skin). I used Antique Linen to ditress all edges and stamp seniment and New Years Swirl on pink cardstock.

Coffee and Cream for a Fabulous Mum!

Here is a card I made for two challenges:
Whiff of Joy - Coffee and Cream.
Simon Says Stamp Challenge - Mother's day /Girlie

Sorry I couldn't stop piling on all of the embelishments I love how it turned out, I hope you like it.
I have been really good lately and I am trying to use up old papers that I have in my stash to make room for all the new stock that my friend Tracey is getting in at the moment. Tracey owns my local craft shop Running with Scissors. I go on a saturday to do scrapbooking in the morning which I love doing and meeting up with all of my lovely crafting friends, and recently I haven't been very good at sticking to Tracey's instuctions so have come away with my own little take on the layout as I seem to cut the paper in the wrong place. Sorry Tracey I will try and get it right on Saturday lol! we have such a laugh. In the afternoons most of us stay til late crafting and laughing, the perfect tonic after a week of work.
I have used :
Spotty basil Brown (RWS)
Bo bunny dots Cream (RWS)
Flowers (RWS)
Most of the embellies are also from RWS - Stickles, Liquid Pearls, Disterss Inks, Pearls, Glimmer mist.
Feather was in my stash along with the pearl flower.
Magnolia - New year swirl around the edge of the image.
I have distressed all of the edges with distress inks and made use of my MS butterfly punch and around the corner punch, I am not sure who the sentiment stmp is by as I found it among my old stamps ( it is surprising what you find hidden among paper!) I have used one of the stamps from the WOJ City girls collection, this is the first time I have used this one and I am sure it won't be the last!
Thanks for looking.
