OMG!! Where has 2014 gone? I can't believe we are heading into November next week! I'm pretty sure the days are speeding up as I get older lol!!

My card today is another December birthday card for one of hubby's colleagues. He is the most layed back bloke you can meet, so this image was just too good to miss :-)

I found a new sketch challenge called Digi Sketch Challenge & followed the sketch after I rotated it. I have used this gorgeous digistamp by La Pashewhich I coloured using my Promarkers. The edges were distressed with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. I used this fab paper from Micheal's Mosaic Memories. The sentiment I created in word & printed onto Kraft Card. x Clare x

Silver Machine for Ed

Hello :-) Today I have the 1st of my overlap cards between my 2 blogs. This is a birthday card I have made for one of hubby's work colleagues. His birthday isn't until December but I am trying to get ahead of myself before I get into Christmas Fair mode.

I followed this week's sketch over at Sketch Saturday as it was perfect for a man's card. I have used the Silver Machine decoupage sheet by La Pashe, which is now available in my shop. I layered it onto Crate Paper Random & Studio Calico Sundrifter papers. I stamped the sentiment using Stazon onto Kraft card & cut into a tag. x Clare x

Sweet Birthday

I have decided to now use this blog for any personal cards that I make & to use my blog linked to my website for any cards that I make as samples or stock. I am at a point now where I really want to keep them as seperated as possible. There may occassionally be an overlap but not very often. So here is today's card.

I have used this sweet image from Pollycraft & coloured her with Promarkers & Mirage pens. I am really beginning to like these new pens & will be adding to my collection soon. I have added some white WOS to the spots on her cossie & also to the shell in her hair.

The papers are a mix of Core'dination, Mambi, Nitwits & a freebie from Papercraft Essentials. To finish it off I added flat backed pearls, organza ribbon, & the fab sentiment from Craft Creations. x Clare x
