Pink and yellow

This is my second commissioned birthday card using Anna Griffin supplies with three bright pink pearls from Hobbycraft and a sentiment. The rose is decoupaged. I used a nestability die cut for the scalloped circle.

This is based on the sketch for Sweet sketch Wednesday 167 which is being sponsored by DigiStamp Boutique:

Flowers and bees

I was asked by an older lady to make three birthday cards, so I wanted to make some that are quite traditional and pretty - what better could I use but Anna Griffin supplies.

So for this first one of the three I've followed the sketch for Divas by design 48:


I kept to a green and yellow colour combo. I tore round an oval perspex template with the yellow paper and then lightly brushed the torn edges with shabby shutters DI.

Because my camera is broken I had to take the photo with my iPad - although I've had the iPad for over a year I've never really properly used it to take photos, so I think I need to practise more:

Suzie's 365 photos day 234: straight

This is a photo taken at Sovereign Harbour, Eastbourne when we were there recently - plenty of straight masts for day 234: straight:


I couldn't take an up to date photo today because my camera broke last night - the battery won't click back into the housing.

Hip to be square

This is my third week as a Guest Designer on Tuesday Throwdown and today for challenge 112 the theme is 'hip to be square'.

I was provided with the lovely Stamping Boutique digital image 'Audrey with pleated dress' and I coloured her with copics and mounted on to offcuts of green and pink card.

The background paper is an offcut I had from a 12 x 12 paper from an unknown company - I just love the patchwork look of it and I'm glad that I still have another piece left to use later. So, having used offcuts, this is for Pixie's crafty snippets 34 and for Waste not Wednesdays 28.

The Craftime sentiment and the flowers are from stash - the second layers of the flowers are die cuts.
