Male card for today

Had to make masculine type card for a friend and came up with this one. It was fairly quick. I used a KennyK image and the trusty ProMarkers.
I am entering this card in the Kenny K "Anything Goes" with a Twist "Stars"

Elegant red and black

I love red and when I chose this stamp I thought she would look quite elegant in a red dress with some sparkles. The image is from SweetPea  stamps and is called the Ice Queen by Marlon Teunissen. I have coloured her with ProMarkers and have tried something new with the see thru cape. I think it has worked quite well for my first try. I used a Spellbinders die and cut a centre stepper card added a sentiment, red and black ribbon and of course the finishing touch of some glamour dust glitter.
I am entering her in the SweetPeaStampers Birthday challenge.

What to do with those Practice pieces.....

I have this lovely stamp from Sugar Nellie and thought I would do some colouring practicing. Once I had done 6 different versions of the same image I put them aside and went onto other things. I am sure we all have unfinished projects hanging about in our craft space. Trying to tidy up a little I came across these images so here we go I have finished off 3 of them and will post the others when they are done.
This was my practice sheet
This is the first of the cards I have made from these images. As always I have used ProMarkers. The dies are from Spellbinders and  Memory Box 
I am entering this card in the following challenges

Happy Easter

Wishing you all a Happy Easter and for my Jewish friends well over the Passover.
I took part in a group swap on Facebook. We had to send our partners Easter card embellishments I had a very generous partner and received lots of goodies. I made this card with some of the stickers she sent me. The gate fold is from Marianne Designs and the centre die cut is Spellbinders, the frame in the middle is from Tattered Lace. I have done a bit of blending which I am not very good at lol.
Thanks for visiting.

New toys to play with

Early this year I was lucky enough to win some Spellbinder products in a draw, well they arrived this week......time to play lol.
 The 2 products were the Ornate Labels one em-bossing folder and the Create a Gerber Daisy die cut set. I really like the embossing folder it really gives a lovely result and I used the same size label from the basic Label one set to 3D it.
The Create a Gerber daisy I found a little finicky and of course you have to run the dies thru your machine quite a few times to get enough petals, leaves and other bits to make the flower full. Anyway here is the result of my playtime. Thank you Spellbinders for giving me the opportunity to win a great prize

short post for today

Today my hubby and I celebrate 28 years of marriage, his gift to me is a lovely gruesome twosome crafty weekend away in Hew Hampshire over the Labour day weekend, my gift to him was $28  worth of lottery tickets hoping I got the best deal as he has won $5 from the scratch tickets and we are just waiting for the Power-ball numbers lol.
I made this card for him and the main subject is very typical. The image is from Make-it -crafty, the Aussie Santa and I have used the very popular card in a box design. The glasses are Marianne dies and the paper are from Dovecraft Monochrome Back to Basics  paper pack. Hope you like it .....he did :)
