A couple of quick cards

Here is a very quick card I made for my Dad for his birthday.
I used Kraft card as a base and kept the colors neutral. The papers and topper are from Docrafts. I embossed another piece of Kraft card and blue piece using the Crafters Companion textures hessian embossing folder.
I love the texture range that they have brought out.
Its quite simple but my Dad really liked it.

I made quite a few of these cards in different color ways as they are really quick and simple to do.
I embossed a piece of patterned paper using a Sheena Douglas embossing folder that looks like splats. I then used a butterfly stamp that was free with Crafters Inspiration Issue 9 and colored the butterfly with my Spectrum Aqua markers. The sentiment stamp was also free on the magazine.

Hope you like them

Busy few months!!!!

I cannot believe how quick this year is going. Time literally seems to be flying.

I have a new job which I have been learning the ropes to. I have been crafting in my spare time but just forgot about the blog!!!

So here I go, lets go back to Christmas.......

For the last few years my Mum and I have loved the Great British Bake Off and each Christmas we have a bake off with my youngest son being the judge.

These were this years entries.

Unfortunately I didn't win this year. I made the snowman cake on the right and my Mum made the snowflake cake but the judge thought the snowflake cake had more elements to it. Oh well I will try again next year.

It was my Grandma's birthday in February so I made her this card. I used white embossing powder for the outline of the stamp and then colored the image in with my Spectrum  Aqua Markers. I didn't write down what colors I used just enjoyed the coloring (sorry)

 Not the best picture in the world.

That's all for now.
