My Paper World


This is my entry for the sketch challenge.
My mum bought me some papers which I thought would only be suitable for 'male' cards but managed to colour the image to match and I think it turned out ok.

Wanted to make a thankyou card for someone so used the sketch for that

Papers by Overton House Designs and some bits of scrap, coloured with pencils, all other things from stash.

Hope to pop back later with some more cards

cute card thursday


Thursday again already? how did that happen!! Anyway been working on a card for a few days now as it was for a friend to give to her daughter and this is what I came up with. The only criteria was that it had to be pink (I think I managed it LOL!)

I also want to enter it in the cute card thursday challenge which this week happens to be 'people'.

a plea!


I was just wondering if anyone had the rainy day tilda stamp which they could stamp and send me? My friend has been diagnosed with something (don't want to give any details) and I thought it would be perfect to tell her I care and that it will soon pass, but unfortunately I do not have it and everwhere seems to be sold out at the moment.

I would be ever so grateful to anyone who can help

I will post a few at a time just to let you know what I've been up to - enjoy!
Big thanks to Diane W for the blog candy she sent me, it was scrummy!! I'm sure I'll be able to make some lovely new cards, thanks a bunch
