Birthday Bear!

Hi crafters,
This is a birthday card I made at the weekend - I felt the need to craft again after our last workshop on Saturday!
I've coloured 'James the bear ' from LOTV with my promarkers and added a bit of shabby pink frantage around the edge of the image.  I used my Go Kreate dies for the card shape and inked around the edges. Some lace and WOC flowers finished off the card.
I'd like to enter my card in this week's Passion for Promarkers challenge which is 'teddy bears'.
Thanks for dropping by,
hugs,  Karen xx

Hang on in's just another birthday!

Hello again crafters,
I'm back again with another card! After the Christmas break I've been itching to get crafting again!
I've coloured in this gorgeous digi image with my promarkers and added lots of stickles on the turtle's back! I embossed all the layers then added some lace, ribbon and WOC flowers.
I did the sentiment on my computer and added 'it's just another birthday' on the inside of the card.
I'd like to enter my card in this week's 'sketch' challenge at Passion for Promarkers and the 'Anything goes' challenge at Crafting from the heart'.
Thanks for looking and I'll hopefully be back soon with another card!
Hugs, Karen xx

Buttons, lace and blooms!

Hello again crafters,
I've got a birthday card to show you made with my favourite girly stamp!
I used my promarkers to colour my image and paper pieced their dresses to match my backing papers. I added some glossy accent to their wine glasses, some lovely WOC flowers, die cut leaves and some glitter of course! Some matching buttons and a row of pearls along the bottom of the card finished it off. I also added a double row of lace behind the ribbon which gives it a lovely girly feel!
I'd like to enter my card in the Passion for Promarkers challenge which is "bingo" and I've used buttons, lace and blooms.
Thanks for looking,
hugs, Karen xx

Crafty time at last!

Hi crafters,
Happy New Year to you all!
I finally managed to have an afternoon of crafting and decided to have another go at making a pop up box card as I made a right pig's ear of it when we made one at our workshop!
I followed Lisa's brilliant tutorial on her website and guess what? It was so easy I can't wait to make more of them!
I printed out the backing papers and toppers from Lisa's CD 'Boys 2 Men' and inked all the edges before attaching them to the box, I added some glitter and attached some string from the fish to the fishing rod!
Thanks for the fab instructions Lisa!  I'd like to enter my card in the 'That Craft Place' challenge which is 'Anything goes'.
Thanks for looking,
hugs, Karen xx
