More Cards

Some cards I have made recently :-)

Friday Sketches # 90 & The Crafty Pad

This weeks Friday sketch was designed by Beatrix
Although not in time to enter this into the Friday Sketches challenge I still went ahead and used the sketch for my first easel card

I followed the tutorial posted on The Crafty Pad Challenge Blog by Maxine and so I decided to use one of the Crafty Pad Stamps I was talking about last week This is called Diggin' Albert

While looking for the links to the easel card tutorial I found The Crafty Pad Challenge blog and this weeks challenge (#59) is a Colour Combo - use Brown, Blue and white or cream, and as I have used those colours I thought i would enter this card there as I think I am in time for that one lol

Please go and check out the DT cards over at Friday Sketches and The Crafty Pad they are all Fab - I love this altered Cd by Debbie (The Crafty Pad) and I do believe the stamps are still on sale The Albert Images are great for those hard male cards!!

Thanks for looking Lou xxx

The Crafty Pad Stamp Designs

Hello All

I just wanted to spread the word about a wonderful blog Called The Crafty Pad Stamp Designs
I came across this blog while hopping about and wow they sell Clear stamps and not only that but they are on sale right now and i do believe there is candy up for grabs have a look HERE(they also sell digital stamps) so straight away I placed an order and the customer service I have received is outstanding, my stamps arrived today and they are gorgeous and I can't wait to get them inked up Thank you soooo much Debbie.

While I am singing praises about some of my shopping experiences I have recently been shopping at BUNNY ZOE'S CRAFTS if you have not seen this shop please check it out the range of Stamps available is amazing and again the customer service is outstanding with my products arriving the following day.
Now this is just my opinion I do not work or have any ties with The Crafty Pad or Bunny Zoes Crafts I am just a very very happy customer .

A Few Cards I've Made lately

Just a few of the cards I have made in the past couple of weeks - just to show you I have not been Idle lol
The Bookatrix was an made for an order, it is HUGE - the card it is mounted on is A4, and i altered a paper mill box to go with it (hubby didn't take piccy of that!) The Handbag shaped one is a card I made for the CraftyUs Card Group swap - It has a white satin ribbon handle with a tiny pink tag saying Happy Birthday Friend (as we had to include hearts & A Friend sentiment on the card )- this is on its way to Australia I am almost sure recipient doesn't read this so its safe to show you, I love making shaped cards this is made using the WS template and is sooo easy to do, the Lilac Mum birthday card is Flower Soft with one of my crocheted flowers - Thank Goodness for UTube - however did we learn anything before??? hehe I could only do crocheted squares but was determined to learn how to do flowers and after hour after hour of watching tutorials this is one of my attempts - The other two cards are made using sketches found on other peeps blogs, there is soo many wonderful sketches on wonderful blogs I find them, save them to my computer for inspiration then forget where they come from so if they are one of yours Thank you - I have no idea where the bug' image came from but the lovely Anya girl was sent to me by my mate Em.
Phew took me ages to remember how to do a post! lol Hope I've done it right!
