No Peeking!

Good morning, I'm up far too early today, adjusting the clocks this weekend seems to have put my body clock out. Before I post my picture, I want to say thank you and welcome to my new followers, am so pleased that some people think that my work is worth following. Here is a simple card made using a Little Clare stamp an LOTV sentiment, papers and brads from my stash.

Having just uploaded my photo, I realise I've forgotten to add my sparkle - I thought there was something missing!

I've been seeing personalised stamps on other blogs and eventually discovered you can have these made at Bunny Zoes Crafts, so I ordered myself one and was so excited when it arrived. I used it on the back of this card:

That's all for now. Thank you for stopping by and have a happy Monday.

Hello again. Have been looking through lots of lovely blogs and am amazed at some of the talent out there. I came across the on my blog visits and thought I'd enter this card I've made for my future son-in-laws birthday into their challenge this week, the theme is animals. I used a KennyK digi stamp for the image and my EK punch for the borders, the sentiment is from a male themed stamp set from Little Clare. I finished off with 3 small brads - as there's not much in the way of embellies that can be used on a man's card!!
Thanks to those of you who have left me your kind comments, they are very much appreciated.
Bye for now, Vicki x

Forever Friends

Hello, I've made another card - my second in two days, nothing for ages, then two in two days!
This time I've used a favourite from last year from my Forever Friends stamp set, I die cut my own card, used Prismacolor pencils to colour my stamped image, my sentiment is one from LOTV and finally I added lots of sparkly (which doesn't show too well on my photo!).
I'm entering this one into the 'Use Sentiment' Monthly Challenge and Challenge #77 Fancy Folds and a Sentiment.
That's all for now. Hugs x

One of a Kind

Hello again, I love this Magnolia Tilda Cheerleader stamp so much that I've used her again! This time for the Challenge #20 'Let's get Sporty' I've used the sketch for this challenge too. She looks alot better in real life! I couldn't get a decent photo no matter how hard I tried. Hope she inspires you to enter too.
That's all for now. Hugs x
