Golfer Brother Card

Good morning dear crafters,

I have another of those difficult male cards to show you!! I've used a 'Lili of the Valley' stamp and coloured it in with my promarkers.  I distressed the edges a little with Tim Holtz 'Antique Linen' and added a memory box star die.  Couldn't add much more than buttons and some card candy - I nearly added glitter and some corner dies but stopped myself as the card was for my golfing mad brother and I don't think he would appreciate the glitter!!
I'd like to enter my card in the Passion for Promarkers challenge which is 'summertime blues'.
Hope you like it and thanks for looking,
hugs, Karen xx

Sparkly House Mouse

Hi crafters,

Hope you are all enjoying this gorgeous weather - bit too hot to craft though!!  I'm not complaining by the way!!
I've made a card for someone leaving at work and I used the House Mouse Triple CD which is brilliant - there's an image there for any occasion.  I used some gorgeous new papers from First Edition called 'Floral Pavilion' and I added some WOC flowers.  I used my PATP punch from Martha Stewart and finished off with some glitter and pearls.  I'd like to enter my card in the House Mouse and Friends Challenge 'Add some sparkle' - although it doesn't show up very well in the picture.
Hope you like it and thanks for looking.
Hugs Karen xx

Hi crafters,

I've got another girly card to show you!  The image is from saturated Canary, coloured in with my promarkers.  I love the colour combo of blue, brown and cream - must use it more often!  The flowers are all from WOC and the gorgeous papers are from Maja Design.
I'd like to enter this card in the Saturated Canary Challenge which is 'Celebration'!!.
Hope you like it and thanks for looking.
Hugs, Karen xx
