My desk is bare of crafting but full of crafty goodies a had a box of bits arrive from Create and Craft There are some card blanks and envelopes, 12 x12 paper, smooth card from promarkers and lots of glue,sticky dots etc.  I have not done much card crafting as I decided I wanted a make over for my blog. I looked at lots of pre-mades and then decided to follow some tutorials web and redesigned it myself. I should image now I know how to do it I will come up with a better design at some point but I am quite pleased with the results This is my laptop with my blog background being worked on 
Hope you all have a good and crafty week

Still Cool!

This card uses a digi image from Sassy Cheryl, he is coloured using my promarkers and my neon markers.  I do not really use Halloween cards so I decided to use a Halloween image and change it for a birthday card. The paper at the back is glittered card from DCWV, the purple paper is pearlized and the orange is from the papermill shop.  I cut the corners using my friskars corners scissors. The sentiment was done in word and cut out.  Inside the card the sentiment says - ... it is just not so obvious!  Happy Birthday.

This card is for the following challenges

Pink & Black Birthday

On this card I have used a digi image from Kenny K's and coloured her using my promarkers.  I have then used some glittered paper from a DCWV Madly in Love pad.  I love this paper as the little square with the hearts and skulls on are all glittered.  The sentiment is one from a QVC sticker set I brought ages ago, the pink card that is the base card and used on the mat is also a glittered card but the camera doesnt seem to pick this up very well, finally the card was finished with some pink gems.

She is then matted and layered onto orange and black card. The black bit behind her is a sample of wallpaper from the local DIY store, must pop back as I have run out now.  Finally she is finished with a sentiment which is a sticker set I brought from QVC a few ago.

Cakes

This card uses a lovely digi image fromStitchy Bears Stamps - I love this image and the sentiment is so my cooking.  The papers all came from a craft magazine, he is coloured using my promarkers including some of the new limited edition winter promarkers (loving these).  The inspiration for this card all came from the Tuesday Throwdown challenge.  This week they have a photo and the theme Tea at Grannys -  made me think of my nan and now my mum who makes cakes for the  Grandkids and I realised that if I ever get grandkids I better learn how to bake - my husband tends to cook here lol.

Bee Happy

This card uses a digi image from Mo's Digital Pencil.  This little flower fairy is coloured using my promarkers and the promarker  blender pen so soften some of the colours.  I then used my circle spellbinder die to draw around to make the oval shape and cut it using my scissors, the mat was just trimmed to fit.  The swirly yellow card came from a Papermania pad which I then mounted onto black and then yellow card.  I cannot remember where the black/grey flower paper came from. The large piece of black at the back is a piece of wallpaper I took a liking to in B&Q's so brought a sample home. Perfect way to pick up scraps for card making. Finally I did the sentiment on my brother labeller and then cut freehand the mats for it.

Autumn Fun

This card uses a really cute digi image from Karen Doodles.  He is coloured using my promarkers, then cut out with my big shot and spellbinders circle dies as was the mat.  The ribbon came off a chocolate box (the chocolates disappeared ages ago!). The oak leave at the bottom was from a digi children colouring page and I just repeated the image five times and again coloured with my promarkers.  The sentiment was in my stash and was the wrong colour so I inked it with my brilliance pearlized chocolate ink pad.  Finally finished with the square gems.

This card is for the following challenges

Halloween Tree

This card used a digi image from Bugaboo.  I have just outlined the tree with my pumpkin coloured promarkers and also coloured the pumpkin and the owl with the same pen.  I then used my big shot to cut out the mats using my spellbinders dies.  As I do not like to waste my card I cut the middle out to used on other cards later.   The Jack O lantern paper was a free download from Vector Free that I then printed out, the scalloped paper was cut using my Woodware trimmer.  A quick and simple card but I am quite pleased with the result.
