West Midlands, United Kingdom
I am a full-time working mum who works shifts with a son Richard aged 23 and a daughter Emma aged 21. I have been married to my lovely Husband Paul for 26 years. My passion in life, besides my family, is papercrafting, especially cardmaking, although I "dabble" in scrapbooking. I was introduced to Jewellery making in 2012 and found another addiction :) I have been cardmaking since 2006. I am also a bit of a tigger freak!

Two cards - three challenges

This first card is made for two challenges.
  1. Sketch Saturday #24 - Sketch layout
  2. Magnolia -v- Stampavie #2 - Clean and simple

The image is a Tilda from Fall Magnolia Stamp Club, coloured with promarkers from Secret Crafter with stickles added to her wings. The sentiment at the side is from Elzybells. Papers are from a freebie set from Summertime Designs with wide white ribbon and flower from my stash. (Thanks to Jo for "borrowing" her idea of the folded back corner and brad xx)

This next card is made using fabulous sketch this week on Papertake Weekly Challenge. A nice simple sketch but so effective.
The papers and stamp image are all from Cuddly Buddly with the image being coloured with promarkers from Secret Crafter. The circle greeting is part of the backing paper cut on cuttlebug using nesties.
