Well after my almighty cock up I made when I tried to enter the Penny Black challenge without actually adding a Penny Black image to my card…I thought I had better have a go at doing it properly…only I cocked up again…The challenge was to make a card with spots on which I have achieved but about two weeks late !

I’m sure I will get it right one day !!..Here is my card…


I haven’t put a message on it yet..I’m beginning to think there is no room…

The paper is from Basic Grey – Colour me silly

The Stamp – Penny Black -Hedgehog in a Hammock

Hand cut flourish, Bloom, Button Centre, Swarovski Crystals, and my new Heart Pins

Here is a close up…

I have had a go at this fantastic sketch below using papers which I have to be honest I have completely fallen in love with..Crate Paper – Katlin Collection…here is the sketch


..which can be found here


and here is my interpretation of the sketch..


As I have said I used the Crate paper Katlin range, Ribbon, Prima Flowers, Flat Back Pearls and Swarovski crystals. The image was one of a pile sent to me by Jakki and coloured in using my Prisma’s.

Thanks for looking and please feel free to leave me a comment…It does make my day X

I want to say Happy Birthday to my Daddy today as he is 65, and to show you the card I made for him… I would also like to enter this for the Magnolia Vs Stampavie Challenge at http://magnoliameetsstampavie.blogspot.com/2009/01/week-10-show-us-your-bows.html p1070752

This is quite a simple card on my scale of things…I stuck the handmade spotty paper to cardstock and cut out the numbers. I matted theRed with Gold Mirri card and then plain green card which I stamped the edges in gold with flourishes.  Edwin is coloured in with Prismas with stickles on his wings and I tied a bow and stick a couple of gold headed pearl pins through.

Here is close up of Edwin…
