As I promised

As i promised yesterday i thought I'd post the the candles I've decorated. Now i have a load of stuff that's just sat in a box and i noticed these lovely blue candles were there. I instantly noticed the colour was close to
Marina Mist from Stampin' Up! Now i love matching Marina Mist with Crumb Cake and with the perfect pearls in the center i think it works so well.

I've just noticed that one of them is higher than the other so I'll go and move it down quickly. I just think they are so cute and would make such a lovely gift for someone!

Fathers Day is Sunday so I'm off to do the last 2 cards i need before posting one later tonight with the others to follow tomorrow!

So many to choose from!

Right, i no its been a while but i have been crafting. So much so, i have 4 different cards/ projects to let you know about. Yesterday it was a dear friends birthday so i had to make her a card and i really wanted to use the Lotus stamp set from K&Co. I also used the Chocolate Chip & Crumb Cake card stock and ink. Here's how it turned out:

I love this stamp set and recommend it to everyone, however  wouldn't use water based inks with it because the image doesn't always come out clear. An ink i like to use though it Color box chalk inks, yo get a great coverage with them!

Well i should be back soon with how i decorated candles after being inspired by Carol!

Cya soon! x

Men, Men & More Men!!

Lady's & Gentlemen,

Its fathers day soon! And if you are like me, you'll be dreading making the cards for it! However no fear, we have the Internet full of ideas shared by others. Now i' thought I'd share a few ideas I've come up with for birthday cards for the guys, but the sentiment could easily be changed. For both of the cards i used We R Memory Keepers Teenage Angst collection, The colours and pattens on the just lend its self to male cards so well. One issue though would be that they can be seen to be quite young for fathers day cards.

Well i hope you enjoyed today's cards and find the layout helpful. Any questions feel free to leave comments below.
Cya you guys soon! x

Afternoon all, isn't it a nice day?

Now it was my sister birthday and as normal i had to make a few cards for her. I really wanted to use the We R Memory Keepers stuff i brought from TK Maxx, this card then was using the Tiffany card stock & stamps on the card with a Stampin Up! Crumb Cake base.
Now i just brought loads of Promarkers from Hobbycraft and spent  a fair bit on stamps the other day! Therefore today will be spent crafting i believe ;) aren't i lucky?
Cya later all x
