Tilda with Koala

Another great sketch provided by Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2.  The amount of times they get me out of a mental/card block. The papers are called Lillibet. It makes a change for me to not use LOTV papers.  The image I've used is Tilda with Koala.  I've used my faux crochet border for the patterned strips, and the flower is a Magnolia Doily flower.  I've never used this die before but I really like how it looks.   I've also added glossy accents to the koala's nose. I'm entering this card into the following challenges Midweek Magnolias - Anything Goes, Papertake Weekly Challenge - Anything Goes, and Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 - Sketch 30.

I've used Sketch Saturdays sketch for this card.  The papers are LOTV Nitwit Papers called Country Meadow, the sentiment is a Stampin Up one called Express Yourself, and the flower is a Spellbinders Blooms Three die cut. The stamp is also a LOTV one called Milly Just for You.

Sketch N Stash Challenge 146

I had to make this card quickly as I need to post it tomorrow before I go away on my hols.  I was so relieved to see that the challenge at Sketch N Stash was a sketch that was perfect for the card I had in mind.  The papers are LOTV Father Knows Best paper pad, the image is a stamp by Butterfly Kisses called Old Crock that I've embossed with silver embossing powder.  The sentiment is a die cut by Penny Black called Celebrations. Love the script that has been used for it, I think I might use this one quite a bit.  The picket fence in the middle of the card (that you can just see) is a Martha Stewart punch.

Sweet Sketch Wednesday 203

Another great sketch provided by Sweet Sketch Wednesday (I really don't know what I would do without your sketches).  Thanks also for picking my last card as a Top 3.
The stamp I've used for this card is LOTV Dandelion Clock.  I remember playing this game with my friend. We used to blow the dandelion clocks and with every breath we would count until there was nothing left on the stem, then that would be the time!!! Sad or what!!!  The papers are also LOTV called Country Meadow.  I've added glammer dust on to the dandelions.  Actually the sentiment is also LOTV (I was on a roll using their products this time).  The scallop punch I've used is Stampin Up.  Sorry DT Team I just wasn't brave enough having a go at any form of stitching on my card.

Less is More Week 186 Sketch

The challenge at Less is More is a sketch.  I always like the sketch challenges, it makes it so much  easier.  I've used Stampin Up Blooming with Kindness for the flowers, and have used Elegant Eggplant and Lovely Lilac Stampin Spots (thanks Michele).  The sentiment is a Papermania anniversary stamp.

Charisma Cardz Challenge #18 - Wedding Anniversary

My friend has just celebrated her silver wedding anniversary. I can't believe that she has been married for 25 years. Where has the time gone.
I got the idea for this card from Pinterest.  I love this site, I can spend hours and hours on it. For the card I've used Stampin Up Petite Petals stamp set.  I have heat embossed each flower with silver and then added them to a circle.  I also heat embossed the sentiment.  The sentiment is a Papermania set called Anniversary Sentiments.
Happy Anniversary Michele & Tim x

Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 - 25

Love the sketch at this weeks Sweet Sketch Wednesday.  My friends daughter is getting married next weekend and I thought the sketch was perfect for the card I needed to make, but I have changed it slightly and added a heart instead of a circle, so I don't know whether it will be accepted or not.  The colour scheme for the wedding invites, favours etc is cream and grey, so I thought I'd add grey on the card (what a copycat!!!).  The image I've used is Stamping Bella - Uptown couple Brett & Brenda get married.  The hearts are a Marianne Creatable die.  Can't remember what the papers are called.  I've used a heart embossing folder on the large heart.
