Cupcake blossom

Just using some new items "nestabilities blossom two"(I could say that they were Xmas presents in a way there are I just have to buy my own stamping presents) for the sketch from CCEE I used a sponge dauber to add colour to the edges of the blossom, watermelon ink is such a pretty colour.

Gone Fishing again

It has been awhile since I have done a Mojo Monday sketch, this sketch matched my stamp perfectly.
I needed a card for my brother in law's birthday next month, I knew I wanted to use this stamps as he is a keen fisherman, going with the fishing club several times a month. But he seems to do a lot of trying but he never brings any home, perhaps all he catches is old shoes. LOL
I have been spring cleaning the house and came across this mesh that I had kept from some packaging it look just like fishing net.
I purchased this set from a craft shop really quite cheap, it is from Sullivans, and there a several other male theme images in the set.
Stamps: Sullivans clearstamps
Paper: blue, white & black
Other:copics,brads,netting,foam tape,DS tape

Disney Graduates

Hi there
I have been busy moving my craft room, My daughter is due home next month, while she was away I kind of took over her room. That is 12 months of stuff to move. Now the process has begun and it is a slow process as I am a bit of a hoarder and never throw anything out just incase I may need it someday to use on a card. From her 5x5 room to my small craft corner 1.5 x 2. Two large bags for storage elsewhere as I they will never fit. But I am looking forward to seeing my girl.
This is a photo of her at her graduation ceremony for the Student exchange program at Disney World Florida.
Thanks for looking

Diva Party

Well here it is the last card that I have made for The Greeting Farms 12 days of sketches. I have had fun doing these sketches but boy is it a lot of work to make a card each day, upload the photo and write a description, give it a name and post it, I am so glad that I am on holidays.
This card is also made for the 5pm challenge over on Club Anya blog, I am not sure if I will do all the challenges 8 in one day, that is alot of work. I liked this one as it was a challenge to use colours that you would not normally use. I like teal and orange but never have put them together, I have not even used my orange copic before. You can't see it too well but the guitar has been coloured in with twinklettes for a rockstar sparkle.
Stamps: TGF Rockstar Anya, Sentiment - Technique Tuesday- wild at heart
Paper: orange, teal ,black, DP - Piggytales old king cole collection
Other: Black & orange ribbon, orange & teal brads, nestabilities, copics, twinklette, charm

Highland Laddie

Welcome 2010
I hope that everyone didn't party too hard last night. I ended up making some cards went to bed before Midnight and didn't even wake up when the fireworks went off.
Starting the year off with the 10th card sketch from The Greeting Farm challenge I had the paper for sometime thinking that I may make a golf card with it but as Scotland is the home of golf another good way to use it it with a Scottish laddie. I used my scor-pal to mark 2 lines around the center rectangle the small pin pricks were made using the cutter bee bug, it has sharp teeth you just run it along the ruler for quick faux pricking, it is not as effective as pink pricking but it is quicker.
Stamps: TGF- Laddie Ian
Paper: Chocolate, green, DP - GCD train track plaid
Other: brads, scor-pal , cuttter bee bug,copics, cuttlebug eb folder - Argyle
