My Chrisymas card from Fiance

My Fiance has made my Christmas card for the last three years, here is this years card. I had already coloured the green of the hat but he coloured everything else on the image and is very proud of his effort.

Friday Sketchers card

I made this card for my Fiance's brother following the sketch over on Friday Sketchers and am also entering it at Stamp Something for their Holiday Somethings challenge.

Mojo Monday Card

This is the Christmas card I'm giving my Fiance, his favourite colour is purple so Ive used that on the Forever Friend Bears hat. I followed the sketch from Mojo Monday but was too late uploading it to enter.

Sunday Sketch and Stamp Card

I made this card for my future Mother-in-Law for Christmas. I used the more traditional Christmas colours on this card and hope she likes it. I followed the sketch over on Sunday Sketch and Stamp as I really liked this sketch.

Quick Christmas cards

Here are a couple of quick Christmas cards I made for my Fiance to give out to people at his work. I had previously coloured the images so the cards took about 10 minutes to make.

Pink Christmas Card

Pink is not a colour I normally use as I'm not a huge fan but many of my friends love it. I quite enjoyed making this card as its such a change from the usual colours I use.

Here's another christmas card, this time I've used a blue and gold(ish) colour theme. The image was coloured using my new Promarkers which I really enjoy using.

Stampin for the Weekend Card

Forever Friend Christmas card

I used promarkers to colour this Forever Friends stamp which came free with Creativity magazine. I have used the holly embossing folder from cuttlebug as I like to include some embossing on my cards.
The bear was coloured using oatmeal, apricot and vanilla pens.

I loved this sketch when I saw it on I Love Promarkers and as Ive just got some promarkers and thought I would give it a go. The card was made for my sisters 30th birthday.

First 2009 Christmas Card

This is the first Christmas card Ive made this year. Little Snowy was coloured using the Contemporary Christmas pack of Promarkers. Its the first time Ive used Promarkers at home so I was a little worried I wouldnt do the pens or image justice.

Thursday, 5 November 2009

This is the card Ive made for my fiancee. His favourite colours are purple and blue so Ive used these on the card and combined them with the most boy-friendly Penny Black Hedgie stamp I have. The image was coloured using whispers pens. The bottom right hand corner has three small tiles purple, blue and silver in colour.

I like this layout so much Ive used it again. I like the contrast between black and a bright colour such as red. I used a Penny Black stamp and coloured it with Whispers pens.

30th birthday card - blue

Here is the card I made for my friends 30th birthday the other week. Her favourite colour is blue so I thought this card layout worked well.

New blog

After much persuasion and with having free time now Ive managed to start my own crafting blog. It may take some time to get to grips with the whole thing so dont expect too much to happen for a while.
