Colour Crazy challenge

 Todays challenge on Colour Crazy Craft challenge is Sponsored by Sheepski designs.

The image from Sheepski Designs is called 50's Chic Image no 98, is gorgeous. I have coloured her using my Staedtler Pencils, which I quite enjoyed using for a change. 

The back ground papers are a freebie from a magazine I have had for years. And the text is using some pink Rub on's, and finished with a polka dot bow.

Coffee Morning?

This week on Colour crazy Craft challenge we are sponsored by Oddball art.

 I love this image, as it reminds me of how a lot of us feel before our coffee or tea in a morning!

This great image from Oddball art is called 'Monday..' and I have used this before its such a good image.

I did have a bit of a disaster with my colouring though. Believe it or not this image was coloured with promarkers, I used the Letraset paper pad to print the image on but didn't realise there is a back and a front to the paper, and printed it on the back with out realising, so when I went to colour in with my promarkers/letraset pens it looked like crayons! I thought what's going on here then turned over the paper and tried on the back and was fine, so lesson to be learned if you want to make them look like crayons/pencils colour on the back of the Letraset paper.

Coastal images are so relaxing!

 I treated myself to a craft magazine whilst in the supermarket the other day, it was a bargain pack, two magazines and gifts for the price of one. Couldn't refuse that!


I made this card using the stamps  from the crafters companion free gift that came with 'Simply Cards and Papercraft', I love anything related to the ocean.

I thought I would make a fathers day card for my two boys to their dad. So I combined the stamps with a Papermania Fathers day stamp and an anchor die from Trimcraft I already had in my collection.

I heat embossed the porthole and 'you anchor me' stamps and die cut them out with circle dies. Then stamped the rope on each corner, recycled some blue and white striped ribbon i got with tag from my new coat for my Birthday last month, and heat embossed the greeting in white embossing powder, then die cut the anchor and attached to finish.

Sketch card


I thought I would take part in Tuesday Morning Sketches today, had a quick card making session before putting the boys to bed!

I used some papers from a freebie pack from a magazine I have had years, also the sticker and greeting are all quite old too so a good excuse to use up old stash.

The challenge is #590 using the sketch listed on the site Tuesday Morning Sketches #590

Day at the beach


Here is a scrapbook page I created for some of our walks during lockdown in May 2020

Couldn't really do much except for walks near our house or the beach to avoid people!

For the background papersI used  some Paper Cellar Handmade silk laid paper 12 x 12, and also Doodlebug design inc. 12 x 12 Snips & snails paper. The Text were alphabet stickers from American Crafts, The ribbon I got from really reasonable ribbons. I die cut some clouds and a sun out from coloured card. And finally a brown text 'Fun in the sun' was from American crafts accent stickers.
