CAS Card

Hi Crafters,
Well I'm really not sure about this card, wasn't even sure whether to put it on my blog!  After seeing Lisa's CAS cards recently on her blog, I was inspired to try one myself but I think its too simple!  Tried it with a corner die, some twine and even buttons but had to stop myself and remember that this card was going to be clean and simple!  I wish I was happy with it though because it didn't take very long to make - it looks like it too though doesn't it? Oh well, at least I tried!  I'd like to enter this card in the Joanna Sheen Challenge which is for a 'Father's Day' or male card.  Thanks for looking,
Hugs, Karen xx

18th Girly Card

Hi Crafters,

I made this 18th Birthday Card with a new stamp I got at Port Sunlight - thought it would be handy for my girly cards!  I coloured the image with my promarkers and paper pieced their dresses to match the background papers.  I added some WOC flowers, stickles, matching ribbon and some pearls - job done!
I'd like to enter my card in the Passion for ProMarkers challenge which is 'floral fantasy' (use at least 5 flowers'.
Hope you like it and thanks for looking!
Hugs, Karen xx

Russian Dolls

Hi crafters,

I've got something a bit different this time!  I was asked to make a card with a Russian doll theme and this is what I came up with - what do you think?
I made them with some Lily of the Valley papers, I used my MS punch and embossed the background behind the dolls.  I punched some flowers and distressed all the edges with Tim Holtz ink.  I coloured the faces with my promarkers but this was the only bit of colouring I did which was a bit weird! I'd like to enter my card in the Joanna Sheen blog challenge which is 'Spots and Stripes'.
Thanks for looking,
Hugs Karen xx
