I have been struggling for inspiration lately so decided to make a "print and go" card. This card was downloaded from sam cards and all I had to do was print and cut. I didn't add as many decoupage layers as are given as personally I dont like them to be too built up. I added some gems and a bit of glitter and bobs your uncle.

I have been practising my water colouring and believe me I do need practise. It took me ages to colour in this penny black The backing papers are a download from a work in progress, Vicki has some fabulous papers and elements available for download. I am not entirely sure that the papers have come out the right colour as I seem to be having a problem with my ink cartridge at the moment. Add some flowers and a touch of glitter and voila!!

I made this card for the Papertake weekly challenge the theme this week is "hot, hot, hot" think reds, oranges, yellows, hot pinks etc!! I am not sure the colours come out quite the same on the piccie as they are in real life they are more orangey than they look on here but hey ho!!. I used papers from shabby princess and the image is from Pink Petticoat.

Well I finally got round to making another card today. This was made for Kim's doodle challenge on Cuddly Buddly. I coloured the image on psp as I am afraid my colouring by hand isn't very good. The backing paper was just one I found in my stash and added a prima flower and a bit of glttter.

I have another card to upload today, I am really suprising myself at the moment. This is another fathers day card that I was asked to make. The backing paper is from a free download I acquired but can't remember where from. The letters were again from pink petticoat big bloomers and I added a couple of penny black stickeroos.

I must say that I think I am doing rather well, I actually have another card to upload, not bad going when I thought I had run out. Just made this one this morning for fathers day. I used cuddly buddly elephant walk image and papers although I did change the colour of the backing paper in psp.

Good morning all, its very wet here today and looks like there will be no improvement as the day goes on. I have another card to share with you all today, dont think this daily posting will last long as I think I have run out of cards This one is similar to the other wedding anniversary card I made. With a bit of trial and error I manged to cuttlebug the whole of the card using the swiss dots folder, the greetings were made on the computer and a bit of organza ribbon added and voila!!!!

Good afternoon to you all, here is todays offering. I was asked to make a card for a man who likes walking in the countryside. I wasn't at all sure what I was going to make and am still not sure if this is what my customer wanted. I used backing papers from pc crafter and added a little hiker image to the corner. I used Pink Petticoat monograms for the lettering and did a bit of faux stitching round as it detracted from the dodgy cutting out.
