Tilda Friendship Card

Made this from the sketch at Truly Scrumptious with the theme of Black, White and 1 other colour.
Image on the front and inside are from the New Summer Club.
Papers are CCRS & stash
Flower is from a friend and centre from my stash
Did this as a friendship for a docrafter hope she likes.

I am also enterying this in the Tuesday Taggers as their theme is to do a card for a friend and include a sentiment.
Hope this is ok as the inside has the sentiment to go with the flowers.

Couple of thank you cards

Well been trying to catch up on a few thank you cards for friends.
I have used a stamp from Pollycraft for my 1st one she is so cute and some papers from my stash. Trying to use some oddments up as i have quite a few large pieces. Coloured with my Promarkers trying some new colours i got not 100% sure i have mastered the darker colours but practise makes perfect.

The next is from Sugar nellie decided to do a little paperpiecing really enjoyed doing this and have made several layers for the dress. used my new punch i got from my lovely friend janette. Coloured with my watercolour pencils and added a flower made from 3 different colours to match the colours of the papers

Lastly is another Sugar Nellie stamp i have yet to get but is on my wish list. My friend christinekindly stamped me a few so lovely colouring this. Yet again used my Promarkers some paper from my stash and the sentiment is from love notes from polly craft designs.

Penny Black Summer card

Well the theme for this weeks challenge over at A Spoon Full of Sugar is a summer project/card. Well I had this image sat looking at me so i thought what better to depict summer and with the heat we have been having we all need a little shade. Have use some nice cooling blue cools to reflect the shade hedgie is trying to get from the flower and used a summer stamp i picked up for 50p at a craft fair.The buttons have little blue bees on but sadly picture not too great. Sorry!

Fairy Anya

I have made this for a friend got the image off as part of my birthday present from a docraft member in a card. Just love it and was a dream to colour. I have used my Promarkers and have glitter the wings. The layout is from a sketch over Papertake so am entering it in their challenge. Wow hope i have just managed the deadline.
