Bestie image

The card I have made today is for a friends birthday and as she is into quilting and sewing I thought this image was perfect for her.

I have used the digi image from Sherri Baldy available here,  I have coloured her with the Spectrum Noir pencils, the first time I have used just the pencils and have to say I really enjoyed doing it.  Used the Spectrum Noir pens to shade the background.

As mentioned in my last post I have spent my time in learning to quilt, and this is a small quilt that I made for my great grand daughter. I was really pleased with the result, and so was my grand- daughter, so she has put her order in for one for her!

Back Again!

I was going to try a be a better blogger this year, but so far that hasn't worked out!  I have been busy quilting and not card making.  I will post pictures of my quilts soon.  But today I have made a card for my granddaughters birthday on Monday.  She loves ladybirds which is why I chose this image and colours.

The image is a Bestie digi image and I have coloured her with Spectrum Noir pens and pencils.  Embossed the background and added a few gems and computer generated sentiment.

Happy New Year

I am hoping to be a better blogger this year! And as I have had some Spectrum Noir pens and pencils for Christmas, I have been having a play.

I have used the Sugar Nellie digi image - A Little bit of Gossip and coloured with the pens and pencils.  The backing paper is a magazine freebie and added the die cut fence and flowers.

Made a Start ..

On my Christmas cards. I recently bought the Pollyanna Pickering's DVD rom and I am loving the images on there. And this is part of the first batch of cards.

Waiting for the Snow and Ice one to arrive now.

Back after a bit of a break

I have had quite a break from blogging, I have been getting used to a new computer and Windows 8 and have also been playing with Serif software and getting used to that.  Also my hubby bought me the Silhouette  Cameo as an early birthday present and I have been having fun playing with that, and I love it.

So for my card base I used the Cameo and the Bestie image is coloured with Spectrum Noir - first colouring I have done in ages.

Spring is in the Air!

Another beautiful day, bet it doesn't last over Easter.

Well, I have my new computer and I love it, except that I have had to get another photo editing program  and that has been a bit of a nightmare! Haven't worked out how to add my watermark!

I have bought a couple of new digi images from Pink Gem, and this one is called Poppy in Sneakers, coloured with Spectrum Noir and added die flowers etc.

Mojo is making a comeback

It has been a long time since I have made any cards.  I have been doing a bit of sewing and attempting jewellery making.  But now starting to get back into card making.  This is a card I made recently for a little girl's first birthday.

I have used a Wee Digi image called Mary, and coloured with Spectrum Noir and the backing paper is from the BeBunni cd rom from Crafter's Companion.

I am hoping to get a new computer this week end which will make things easier, this one is so old and slow it takes ages just to do one post.

Sent With Love x

What a dreary, dark day, so difficult to get a decent photo.  Not that I am the best of photographers on the best of days!

I have used a Saturated Canary image today called Kisses, coloured with Spectrum Noir.  The backing paper is from an old Papermania pad.

My New Hobby

This is my first attempt at jewellery making.  I bought myself some beads, wire and a gizmo and created this necklace and earrings.  I have also booked to go to a class in February so should be able to improve after that.

I am entering this into the challenge at Beading Friends Forever
