Birthday card plus swap

 The above card is a birthday card as you can see, I stamped on  glimmer mist background I had made, you can't really see this in a scan, it is lovely and shimmery in real life. Love this little boy stamp and have forgot you makes it. Useless or what, I am sure someone will tell me.
Below is a postcard swap I have done and must admit I struggled. When some one tells me one colour, which as you can see is purple, my mind just goes blank, as I cannot visualise using one colour. Then I was told you could use other colours as long as the main one one purple, Duh,,,,,, anyhow this is what I came up with, not over joyed with it, hope whoever gets one likes it. I used one of  Simple expressions stamps, a lovely happy little girl

KC challenges

 The above card was for KC's October challenge, which is Autumn leaves as you can see have used a piece 0f my background I made from the leaves.
The one below is a sketch challenge again for KC. I love these stamps from Timetostamp, now sold by I Brake for stamps. They stamp great if you use Brilliance ink pad. Hope you like them

Halloween cards

 I don't normally do Halloween and here is my second post on them, ATC's the other day now cards.The one above I did for my STH Darlene on Katyscorner. The die cut is a Tim Holtz design for Sissex, must admit I love it. The little girl stamp I am sure was from Designs ink. I break for stamps I am sure bought these designs and the little cat I got off Darlene
This one I made for my friend Mary, this stamp is a Sweet pea stamp and the black cat is a belly. Hope you like them. I quite enjoyed making them

G H and I

 Well here we go letter G Girl's ruin, love this stamp and had it ages but first time I have used it, thought it would fit in very nicely
 H is for Harmony can you imagine the racket they would be making if it was real,,,,,,,,,, Harmony not
Finally what can I say, it had to be a Indian for the letter I didn't it. Love this image he has such a rugged face, just like I would imagine them to look like. Hope you like my choice of stamps

Birthday card

Just wanted to try out adding a lace flower. You have to be careful of the width of lace you use as it looks silly if the flower is too big for the card, ask me how I found that out,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,  Anyhow just thought I would share and when I have time must do some more experimenting

Leaves again

Well Folks this is the background off yesterday but have shrunk it so there are 4 A6 pics on a A4 sheet to make the leaves smaller, if any of you like it you can use it. Hope some of you do

Another one Folks

Here is another one Folks made from the leaves off a tree in our street. If you print it on A4 portrait and reduce it too 4 A6 the leaves are much smaller and look better

Hello All

I am back from my visit with friends and had a lovely time, must admit done no stamping yet but have just made this background out of leaves, some of which I brought back from Port Sunlight
I am pleased as it looks really good printed out and have turned the layout too landscape and put it on twice side by side so the leaves are smaller and that look good too. If anyone wants to use it please feel free

 Been playing the other day and made some flowers, thought I would share, don't think they turned out too bad, seeing I am just learning. Above are made from paper and below are a couple I made from lace
This is my last post for a few days as am off to one of my friends tomorrow and seeing I am not clever enough yet to program some uploads for while I am gone, will see you all in a few days

Another one for Ethan

Well as you know I made him a Marmaduke card for his birthday, further down the page. Then he came in and said Nan can I have a Avatar card for my birthday,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, What do you do, being the soft Nan I am went on the hunt for pictures as I know there are no stamps for it and this is what I come up with. Must admit was thrilled with the pictures I got, although you really can't see it the 2 on the dragons are attached with strips of acetate so they look as if they are flying, well all I can say is he better like it. The other card,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, will give to my Son to give him, it won't waste
