Happy Birthday Crafty Hubby!

Tis the weekend *happy dance* and yesterday(26th) was crafty hubbys birthday.  I always struggle to make a card for him, as I want it to be totally perfect.  This year I decided to concentrate on his love of music and all things rock, and bought a fab digi from Kenny K and practised my best colouring lol.

Last weekend when we were up north in Aberdeen, I popped into The Papeterie and got a box or two *cough* of Diamond White paper, which is coated and is amazingly good for using with Promarkers and Flexmarkers. I discovered this gem of a place a few years ago, and hubby used to deliver to the paper mill it is attached to when he lived/worked up there.

I digress….I loved making the card and I am delighted with the results.

Ingredients
Coloured with Pro and Flex Markers
Paper and guitar charm from stash.

Hope you like the card.

I would like to enter him into the following challenges;
Card Crafters Circle – Boys to men
Paper Shelter – For the boys
Stamping Chef – All boys
Digital Tuesdays – Birthdays(must have digi element-image, sentiment and papers)
Sparkle N Sprinkle – Use a digital image
The Stamp Spot – Masculine Creations

First sepia card.

It’s the weekend, at last, and what busy week it has been.  As some of you will already know the lovely Sarah Hurley shall be on our screens on Create & Craft demoing Letraset goodies, details of the shows can be found here on Sarahs blog.  Sarah asked us for some new samples to spruce up her on screen work area, and I thought I would try a sepia card after being inspired by the last show I watched Sarah doing.
 
I have became slightly obsessed with sepia, and can’t believe how good it looks using only 5 colours.  I used Burnt Sienna, Cinnamon, Tan, Putty and Tan and simply alternated the combination of them on this Saturated Canary digi stamp. I also popped some tiny pearls in her hair to make her a wee bit more glamorous.

Ingredients
Fancy Digi Stamp from Saturated Canary
Coloured with Promarkers and Flexmarkers
Cuttlebug embossing folder
Bazzill Basics card
Sentiment from a Kanban set
Nesties
Ribbon, flatback pearls, card candi and card blank from stash.
 
I hope you can tune in on Sunday and Monday and maybe learn some new tricks xx

Launch day is finally here.

And the gorgeous Secret Rose Garden is now available in all its glory to see. It has been so hard for me to keep schtum about all the delicious items in the kit, but Phill and Sarah have been keeping me in check (well trying to lol).
 
This range has been a long time in the making, and the wait has certainly been worth it. I was privileged enough to get a kit to play with last week and spent lots of time oohing and aaahing at my screen before deciding what to make.  The range of papers are superb, from love hearts to buttons, gingham to polka dots, what else could a crafter ask for?  Anyway, here are my creations.

 
I used the precoloured digis, and love the detail that is in each one. The squirrel is super cute. All the items I have used are available in the Secret Rose Garden Shop, and there are so many things available in the range.
 
Why not pop over to the FB Page for ideas and inspiration? There is also a Blog and Gallery.
 
Thanks for reading my post today, hope to see you again soon xx
