Good morning everyone, an overcast type of day in my neck of the woods it doesn't know if it should rain or let the sun come out! hopefully the sun. I really had to think about what type of card I was going to do. I looked at so many different images I would have liked to use but as I planned to make a round card the images really didn't fit. Here is my card I do hope you like it.
My Card Recipe
Backing card White Bazzill which I print the Turquoise Gingham paper onto. This was a free download from The Craft Table and the colours of these Gingham's are wonderful and I used sea green Bazzill. The image is from Digi Stamp Boutique and this is Lilly. Lilly was coloured with my new Copic's which I'm still getting used to. The embellishments are from my stash, gems, ribbon and flowers. Some of the flowers I already had the yellow and small aqua so I used white flowers and coloured them with my Copic's which is a wonderful idea I read somewhere. I couldn't have done that with coloured pencils could I? LOL
Many thanks for looking and enjoy the rest of your week.

Hi everyone, my first posting for over a week, it's really been one of those weeks glad it's moved on to another. I'm about to do this postings when I read Merry OH!! was this card meant to be a Merry Christmas Card too bad LOL. My boys are going to be Merry anyway as it's the first Cricket game of the season on Saturday and they are so looking forward to it.
Here's my take on this sketch. White, Olive and Dark Green Bazzill, the Design paper is unknown a friend of mine left it at my place and it went so well with the Bazzill (thanks Jen for leaving it).
My image is from Digi Stamp Boutique, I contacted Sally Ann a few weeks ago and asked her if she could design Josh playing cricket for my son's, no rush just before their birthday's next year. Two days latter I received an email that it was available on her web site if I was interested, what a silly question I just love Josh and thank you so much Sally Ann he's great to make those wonderful Masculine Cards.
Colour Medium: Coloured with my new Copic Markers, bring back my coloured water pencils they are so much easier.LOL
Embellishments: Brown and gold ribbon, brads, round paper clip from my stash. The sentiment is PC generated using Verdana font. Cuttlebug embossing folder Happy Birthday.
Take care and have a great week.

Good morning everyone, here is my card for Craft Calendar's 1st monthly challenge being Autumn. So hard for me to think of Autumn as we are in Springtime in the Southern Hemisphere and the daffodil's are out and the baby lambs are running about (and I forgot to say it snowed the other day only 3 1/2 hours away from us, yes we had a cold snap) LOL. But joking aside this was a first for me I've never made an Autumn card and it was really had to think about what I could do especially at 2am in the morning when I was meant to be sleeping or and in the morning having a shower. LOL

Embellishments: Hot Pink Ribbon, Lime Green Tulle Ribbon and Gems from Craft Creations
