Mothers Day Card

This card uses a fun image from Bugaboo
I have coloured it using my Aqua Pencils from Spectrum Noir
I wanted the block to go down the card so cut each image out
 and mounted it onto some yellow card. 
This card I had used to cut some flowers on my scan and cut 
but the holes are under the images so waste not want not
The green glitter card at the back was a bit I was sent as sample
The pale yellow and green flower paper where all from my scrap box
The flower were plain white and I coloured them with my yellow sparkle pen

This card is for the following challenges

Thanks for Looking

Ha, ha - great card Nicky! Love the design and the quirky giraffes too. Great use of those snippets you found as well! And I did smile at the post with Stanley hiding - daft dog :) Maybe he thinks if he can't see you then you can't see him?

Promarker Storage Update

As some of you know I tend to be a little bit of an OCD crafter - I like everything to have a place and when I have finished using it that is where it goes.
Now when I first started collecting Promarkers I used a travel CD case to transport them and it has worked really well you can see the original HERE. I then also started to collect some flexi markers and the promarkers brought out some limited edition promarkers so I decided I needed them!
       This meant my storage box was no longer large enough so I started to look at ways to improve it

I brought a slightly larger box from E-Bay then set to improving the insides I realised if I made some boxes for the pens I could store more in a row, than using the CD sleeves. So using an A4 piece of paper I scored out a box with two dividers so the pens do not fall over (I did warn you I was OCD) 
This is the A4 piece of card with the score lines dotted and the solid lines are the cut lines.
This way there is very little waste - just the sma…

No Cards But A Promarker Storage Project!

Sorry not a card but I have been working on this, hopefully some cards soon. Anyone who know me knows I am a very organised crafter My promarkers have been driving me mad as they were in a number of different containers and I never seem to pick up the right container, so I decided I needed to sort it This is a CD storage box from Tescos it comes with 100 sleeves to put CD in
You can find it HERE but there are many others out there Being sad I had some Pro markers in my handbag so was able to try them in the shop for size! Each sleeve holds seven promakers and each section comfortable hold 10 sleeves or eleven with a little bit of a squeeze As I said I like things very organised or as my DH says OCD! I used some adhesive labels in my Craft Robo and cut out the little circles this way they were still attached to the backing sheet I could colour them and then peel them off with my poky tool and stick to the ends of the pens I also have put a coloured circle on the bar of each sleeve (which slides…
