Penny Black Recipe

This week on the Penny Black Saturday challenge there is a recipe, 3 flowers, 2 papers and 1 ribbon. So this is my card made to the recipe. I have used the penny black stamp City Diva and coloured her with polychromos and sansodor, the papers are by scrapbook walls. The flowers are all Prima flowers with brads as the centres.

Just a quick card today as I have been busy making Elvis Christmas cards and have been unable so far to partake in the normal challenges, but no the cards are done hopefully normal service can resume.

The other bit of news that I have is that I have been chosen to be on the DT for Kadoodle stamps which are available only from The Craft Barn a great shop in Lingfield Surrey, So thank you Sandy and Isabelle for chosing me

A wedding Card

Thought I would show a wedding card that I have made for a wedding this weekend. Have used a manga style stamp from dewdropz crafts which I think is an absolutely brilliant stamp. The image has been coloured using Polychromos and sansodor, and then mounted onto gold mirri card. The colour theme of the wedding is Brown and gold, so therefore I have used brown card which has been embossed in the cuttlebug swiss dots embossing folder, wrapped some gold ribbon around the card. The base card is leather look cream card, but this doesn't actually show up on the scan.

This week on Papertake weekly challenge blog there is yet another great sketch by Dawny.
I had been asked to make a card for a girl at works Nephew who is working on the Olympic Site in Stratford and if possible could it be made with someone wearing a hard hat on it. I browsed through all my Cuddly Buddly images remembering that I had downloaded the Men at Work collection, so I have used one of the men and the backing paper from that set. Added some paper from my stash for the main BP and then added the ruler twill. The nephew is a peel off, but I don't possess any stamps with nephew or anything similar on them.

Penny Black Day

Today is Penny Black challenge day, and today it is a sketch by Beth.
I have stayed away from the christmas cards for this card. I have used Penny Black man's best friend stamp, coloured with polychromos and sansodor again. The BP is papermania from the Simply elegant pad. Have used dark brown bazzill card down the centre of the card and light brown card from my stash to mount the image and for the sentiment which is from stampin up.
Finally used a piece of my furry paw print ribbon which I got from a craft show and have nearly run out of now......note to self must get some more.

Sketch Saturday 28

There is a brilliant sketch over on Sketch Saturday challenge blog this week and the sketch is by Mariska, great sketch thank you. I have used Tilda in christmas stockings for this card, she has been coloured using polychromos and sansodor, The BP's are all from the DCWV Rose tinted christmas pad. The ribbon is from my ribbon drawer and the sentiment has been done on my Dymo. The three snowflakes have been punched out with glittercard, the one that looks black is in fact purple.
Time to hopefully do another challenge, hasn't been a good week for taking part in challenges, and back to work tonight so another night with no crafting.

Friday Sketchers

Ok, so this is the first in my weekend catch up challenge set to myself and it is for the Friday sketchers challenge blog. This week it is a great sketch from Carole. I have used Tilda and Edwin skating coloured with polychromos and sansodor. The BP is from Bo Bunnys and the strip of paper is from my stash. Have mounted the picture onto some blue bazzill card and then used the same card in the Sledding cuttlebug embossing folder for the words.
