For my friend Jayne

Over at Passion for Promarkers their challenge this week is a theme of "Best Friends". I've been going to make my friend Jayne a card for a wee while now, so when I saw PfP's challenge I thought it would be a perfect chance to make Jayne a card.
Even though Jayne has her own health issues, she has been and continues to support me. Sometimes we go weeks without texting or chatting but we always pick up where we left off. I can't thank Jayne enough and I'm trully blessed that she is my friend. Hope she like's her card.

Here's what I used:
Stamp - Posh Tilda and coloured with Promarkers.
Papers - Sugar Rush by Basic Grey.
Edges distressed and inked with Victorian Velvet distress Ink by Tim Holtz.
Sentiment - Craft Works.
Cardstock and embellies are from my stash.

I'm entering this one into:
Passion for Promarkers - Best Friends theme.
Mojo Monday - Sketch.

Flying Tilda

The other night my dad asked me to make him a thank you card for a lady at the CAB. I had no idea what to do, so I had a look at a few challenges and as always proved to be such a great help. I'm still not crafting as much but I'm slowly doing a little bit more.

Here's what I've used:
Stamp is as always Magnolia and coloured with Promarkers.
Papers - Sugar Rush by Basic Grey.
Flowers and leaves - Wild Orchid.
Pin - Posh Pins & Charms.
Pergamano White Pen
Tilda's wings made using Flex parchment paper by Pergamano.
Tilda's wand - Diamond Sparkle by Hunkydorey.
Bling and white cardstock from my stash.

I'm entering this into the following challenges:
Friday Sketchers - Sketch. Thanks for the inspiration.
Just Magnolia - Think Pink. Just had to join in as this is very close to my heart.
Totally Gorjuss - Sparkle. Tilda's wing and bling.

Noel, Noel!!

Hasn't this year flown by, can't believe it will soon be Christmas and I've only made 4 Christmas cards!! So I hunted high and low for that crafty mojo of mine and this is what I managed to come up with.

It's been a while since I made a easel card, I think this Magnolia stamp looks good on a easel. As always I've distressed the papers and inked them with Walnut Stain Distress ink.  Anyway better tell you what else I used.

Stamp - Carol Singer Tilda by Magnolia and coloured with Promarkers.
Papers and the lettering - Wassail Collection by Basic Grey, bought these last year and didn't use them all.
Diamond Sparkles (wings) - Hunkydorey.
My trusty Pergamano white gel pen for the highlights.
Bling from stash.

I'm entering it into;
Create4fun - Sketch. Hope they like my card, don't forget to pop over and have a look at what the DT came up with.

Thanks for taking the time to have a look at my blog xxx
