TSOT #169 - Amazing You

Hi! Well I can slowly feel the start of winter. It's been so nice having unseasonably warm weather, but today is bleak and raining - can you tell I dont like the winter too much ;)

Any way, I'm sharing my card for this weeks sketch over at Try Stampin' On Tuesday. The twist, if you choose to use it is girlfriends.

I changed the sketch slightly and after lots of fussing and trying to make it look 'right', I went with a clean & simple look. 
The my colour combo is wisteria wonder, crumb cake and pear pizazz. My image is coloured with markers and the sentiment is stamped in elegant eggplant, as I thought it need just a little bit more oomph. I made the butterfly by punching two butterflies in vellum and one butterfly on wisteria wonder card and layered them all together and finished with a jumbo pearl. 

Not too sure which friend this will go to - I'm sure it wont stay in my stash for too long :)

We hope you are able to join us this week over at Try Stampin' On Tuesday, it's fantastic seeing all your amazing creations.

Thanks for looking

Birthday Card Take 2

Hello again! SO in case you missed the whole build up to this card, here is the link to check it out.

This card I went for a lot cleaner look and I had all my watercolouring supplies out, so it worked perfectly.

My sister LOVED it. I must admit though, this one was tough to part with ;) 

I used a bunch of stamp sets to create it, so if you have any questions, just ask.

Thanks for looking

Birthday Card Take 1

Hello! Oh boy it has been ages sine I have posted anything here. Between numerous birthdays, weddings, a little thing called a busy life and throw in a Michael Buble concert for good measure - things have been busy!

But I do have a few creations to share with you over the next few days :)

My sister asked me to make a card for her friend, who is not too girly and likes bright colours and no animals. So this is what I came up with:

(I have forgotten where I cased this from so if you know please message me and I'll put in a link)

I must admit, I thought it looked maybe a little too boyish, but going on what I'd been told it should have been ok - (Insert any annoying "your wrong" sound here :) My sister didn't like it.

So after talking to her again, she now wants a card which is blue and apparently her friend loves owls. 
I love my sister, but must admit I was slightly annoyed. So I went back to the drawing board and created one she loved.

I am going to be cruel and leave you hanging with the one she did like. So pop back tomorrow and I'll show it to you :)
