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!

Another two cards!

I'm on a roll - 8 hours at work then came home and made two cards!!!!!! Are you impressed???? My mojo seems to have returned - WITH A VENGANCE!!!


This first card is made using sketch on this week's Sketch & Stash Challenge #4 which is to use their sketch and two new images. My lovely hubby treated me yesterday with these two yummy "Smirk" images which have been coloured with promarkers. The papers are from Pink Petticoat "Little Swirls" with sentiment stamped using Elzybells stamp. Ribbon, gems, flowers and brads from my stash.


This second card is made for two challenges: -
  1. Penny Black Saturday Challenge #37 - Get well soon
  2. Sketch Saturday #39 - sketch layout
The image is my last one of a RAK using "Uplifting occasions" coloured with promarkers. The papers are from Funky Hand "It's Funky Too" with sentiment from Hero Arts. Ribbon, gems, flowers and brads from my stash.
