Penny Black Sketch Saturday

Time for a new challenge on Penny Black Saturday Challenge blog. This week the challenge is to make a card with the theme ‘stitch it up’. This can be either faux stitching, hand or machine stitching. As I don’t have a sewing machine I have decided to use rub ons for my faux stitching. The papers I’ve used are K & Co for the orange and the others are HOTP. Again the image has been coloured in with Promarkers and I have used some prima flowers for a nice finish with a brad in the centre. Thanks for looking and please feel free to leave me a comment if you have the time.




Forever Friends Birthday Card dots and spots

I have made this birthday card for my boyfriend whose birthday is next Saturday. I’ve been inspired by the challenge over on Forever Friends Challenge Blog this week which is all about dots and spots. The papers I’ve used are in a Papermania paper pack. Image has been coloured in using Promarkers. I hope you like it and thanks for looking.

I Love Promarkers challenge

The challenge on I Love Promarkers challenge blog this week it to make a card with a colour theme of black and white plus one colour. Was a little stumped at first as to what to do but in the end I decided to use one of my new Kanban stamps I got from QVC recently and go for black, white and yellow.

Promarkers used:

Primrose, Vanilla, Tulip Yellow, Yellow and Lemon. And Cool grey 5

Papers are DCWV


Penny Black Sketch Saturday 3rd Birthday

This week over on the Penny Black Sketch Saturday Blog, its their 3rd birthday and to celebrate there is a birthday blog hop whereby we can enter a card but we need to visit all the designers blogs to enter. One of these blogs has a proze but no one knows which one. The theme for the card is Pesky Critters. I have decided to use a stamp that I have had for a while but never actually used yet. I’ve used my faithful promarkers to colour the image, a Nellies die and some prima flowers. I am not sure who the paper is by as I’ve had it a while but I think it may be DCWV.

Thank you for looking and i hope you like it.

Forever Friends Wedding Card

I have made this concertina style card for my friends wedding which is in August. It has been used mainly with the black and gold collection from Forever Friends. The wedding stickers are from the normal collection. I have used 3 different papers so I can enter it into the monthly challenge over at the Forever Friends Challenge blog. As it’s quite thick I have also made up a little box for it to go in which I have wrapped some gold ribbon round. I’m really pleased with it and hope they will be happy with it when they open it.




Below is what the card looks like on the back

I love Promarkers challenge


I have only just started to use promarkers and am already loving the results you can achieve with them and have grown quite a large collection in a short space of time. I love Promarkers is a great challenge website and this week they gave us a sketch for some inspiration to create a card. This time I have made another male theme card, this time for my partners nephew. The sketch is below


Again I have used Basic Grey papers and unfortunately I did not keep a record of the promarker colours I used. I will have to get in the habit of keeping a note. Sorry. Hope you like the card and thank you for looking.


Male Penny Black birthday card

This is the second card made for my other nephew. Again I have used Basic Grey papers, peel offs and the image has been coloured in with water colour pencils. Have kept this one a little more simple.


Penny Black Saturday Challenge

I have made this card for my nephew using some inspiration from the Penny Black Saturday Challenge blog.  This week we were asked to make a male theme card. I have actually made 2 as both my nephews have birthdays in July but this is the card I chose to enter on to the blog.  I’ve used Twinkling H2O’s to colour the image, Basic Grey papers, Martha Stuart paper punch, Spellbinders die for the circle and a few peel offs. I hope you like it. Thanks for looking.

Penny Black 60th Birthday card

It has been a very long time since I posted anything on here but thought this card deserved to be shown. It is my friends 60th birthday later this year and she loves the colour purple. So I’ve used some lovely glittered DCWV papers, this gorgeous Penny Black image which I have coloured in with my new favourite promarker pens and then to finish off, I’ve added some doodled edges around the card. I hope you like it.
