My princesses invitation!

Nearly another week gone by... And I can confirm that I have made 4 cards this week- rather well done I think as I have also got a busy eBay business going at the minute and a business page on Facebook to update regular, mix that in with 2 children under 3 and a husband and fondness only knows how I get anything else done!!! Anyway excuses over... I have made four cards this week and I will hopefully get round to posting them on Friday- you never know by then I may have made even more (I can hope cant I not that I hold out much hope as know body bothered to tell me that you don't just have the terrible 2's to get over with children but the tantrummy (if that's a word) 3's or nearly 3's! RANT OFFICIALLY OVER!!!! I'm hoping I receive my next lorry load of crafting goodies very soon I can't wait and as ever I will be using them to create something amazing, till then though my crafting lovelies I will leave you to keep calm and carry on creating!!! (maybe I will use that theory tomorrow when my little monster insists on using my pro markers to colour in her colouring book)!!!!

Hello!!!!! I hope you all like the pick of the week!!! as I said yesterday I was lucky enough to have been given the chance to play with this and design some cards from the show!!! I can now share with you all my cards that I designed!!

Ok, so having read some of peoples thoughts on the create and craft facebook page there is alot of mixed views about this disk!!! All I can say is give it a chance you won't regret it. When I received this kit I thought oh my... what am i going to do with this, but when I started playing with it all my apprehension disappeared!! It isn't my usual kind of card design (as you can see from my other samples!!) but you know what it is sometimes a great thing to give yourself a challenge and think outside of your usual crafty box!! I for one will now be doing this more often as I was so impressed with the art work and all the tools that you can use to make your project unique to you!!!
I am usually a stamper (after spending hundreds and a bit more... on lots of other crafting goodies!!!) I decided that that's what I loved to do. Usually my cd's only now come out when I need to do a quick card, for the men or when you cant get the stamp of the image I want to use, with this cd having line drawn images I could still be as creative as I would usually be using my stamps and colouring with promarkers and my polychromos and best of all I could make the papers to suit my card!!!!

Well done to everyone on the design team, there are some fabulous samples and I am really proud to be part of the team!!!

Birthday Card

My Latest Card Made to Order!!
So..... I'm very excited about the pick of the week launch tomorrow and I hope I can spot some of my cards that I have designed for the show.My sky plus is set to record!!!

Anyways, I thought I would share with you another of my cards that I have lovingly created. This one was for a birthday. 
  I used a lili of the valley stamp and coloured it with my polychromos, Iused stickles on the dress to make it stand out a little.
I used a lili of the valley sentiment and made a bow out of gingham ribbon.
I then mat and layered my card with a gingham and rose paper, i then layered on die cuts and a piece of lace across the centre of the card.
I used a pink chalk ink to go round the edge of the doily, swirl die cut and around my sentiment.

I then added flowers, made some hatpins and punched out some pieces to make an arrangement around the sentiment and coloured these pink and green.

I loved making this card so much!!! i coordinated the inside with a verse and mat and layered with the same papers.

Cant wait to see all the lovel cards everyone has made tomorrow!!!!
