Kiki Bloom

I'm on a roll...3 posts in as many days :)...amazing! I made this card to enter in the Pollycraft challenge this week which is "Cute & Cuddly"...Kiki is pretty cute and cuddly so I decided to make a staggered step card with her. I stumbled across this style of step card while blog hopping last week and have been itching to make one since :)

Here she is:

The cute Kiki Bloom is from Pollycraft HERE.  She has been printed onto X-Press It blending card and coloured with Copics, glitter and glaze pens. This was a really easy card to make and I love the effect...I'll definitely be making more of this style step card.

Thanks for looking......have a wonderful day :)

Air Bookmark & Pocket

The challenge this week at Michelle Perkett Studio is "TAG YOU'RE IT". I'm into bookmarks at present so thought I'd make another one in the shape of a tag to enter the challenge :) Here it is:

I wanted to make a pocket to put it in, so I adapted the tutorial for the Trifold Pocket Card on Splitcoast, to fit my bookmark.

The image is the beautiful Air from Michelle Perkett, available from Michelle's Etsy shop HERE.
She has been coloured with Copics and highlighted with glitter pens.

I really enjoyed making this and intend making some more...they are great little pressies...and you can never have too many bookmarks lol!

Thanks for looking.........have a wonderful day :)

Amy's Birthday Card

Well...I actually managed to get inspired and make Amy's card! I don't LOVE this card but at least it's done.  This is another image I coloured a few weeks ago, waiting to be used.  It's another of the Sugarplums "Take a Seat" collection by CC Designs...LOVE this's soooo cute :)

The window frame and sky have been created using digi papers. They were then layered onto a piece of DP and adhered to a 5 1/2" square card. Emma has been fussy cut and popped up on foam dots.

Now I just have to get Amy's pressie and I'm all set for the weekend. Turning 5 is very exciting...she is our youngest grandbaby...and is very cute :)  They grow up SOOOO fast :(

Thanks for looking....have a wonderful day :)

Sending you Sunshine

WOO second post for the day!!! I've had this image coloured for a while, just sitting waiting to be used on a card for my niece...she had a mastectomy last year and has just undergone a HUGE reconstructive surgery.  I did want to get this card to her when she came home from hospital but I guess it's better late than never :(

This is one of the very cute Lilybean fairies from Pollycraft HERE. I had to have some of them as soon as I saw them :) I'm entering this card in the Pollycraft weekly challenge which is to use autumn colours. Talk about scraping in by the skin of my teeth...only 4 hours left 'til the challenge closes!!!

A Barrel of Monkeys

Not only have I been time-poor lately, but now my mojo has gone into hiding somewhere and I can't find it!!!! :(  I'm beginning to get the odd day to myself where I could be playing...but NO inspiration has been forthcoming...very frustrating!'s our grandson, Brody's, birthday on 26th and I really wanted to make him a card like Helen made HERE.  I loved this card when Helen made it and asked if I could case it for Brody...isn't it great to have very clever friends who let you case their brilliant work lol :) while I was visiting Helen in August I stamped a heap of monkeys from her SU set, all ready to go.

Here's the card:

and inside:

This is the first pop-up card I've ever made! There's no colouring on this card...never feels quite right when I don't do any colouring!  I bought the Barrel of Monkeys game to go with Brody's birthday's an oldie but a goodie :)...hope he likes it!

Now to find some inspiration to make Amy's card...her birthday is the day before Brody's and she's turning 5...they grow up SOOOO fast!!

CS:    All CM from my stash except for SU Whisper White
Stamps:   Monkey from SU Fox & Friends set (thanks Helen)
Wording:  All computer generated
Other:  Fiskars texture plate (for the woodgrain on barrel), foam dots

I'm entering this in the Totally Papercrafts challenge this week which is "Happy Birthday"
