Whacky Wheels

Evening everyone,
I made this card using an image from the Big One cd,which l have decoupaged .The card is a 5x5 white card blank. I cut the front panel away at an angle and placed the panel on the inside.I use this shape quite a bit, it just makes a change...The red stripe DP has been matted onto the front part of the card before l cut the panel away, just makes things easier. A smaller version of the main image has been added on the inside....

    In The Garden !

    Afternoon everyone,
    A few weeks ago l updated to the new interface just to give it a try , and 'disliked it '. I managed to get back onto the old interface, but looks like it won't be around for much longer, l do hate change !  Have any of you already changed over ? l would love to hear what your thoughts are about it.....
    The card l am sharing today is a 6x6 white card blank.l have used some sky blue DP and a piece of white card stock for all the layering and matting. The image is decoupaged and comes from the CD - 'The Big One' by La Pashe.. l have been using quite a few of these images lately,l just love the easy decoupage and the great images.I think this , along with the others , is  from the 'Trinitage' section. l have added lace and 2 different colour sets of pearls, in different sizes and to finish off, l have applied three little gem flowers in one of the corners.The inside is also decorated using the same papers and smaller version of the main image...

    April showers ...

    Afternoon everyone,
    The card l am sharing with you today is a 6x6 white card blank.I have used a new digi that l won  from  'Pink Gems Designs' ( see sidebar for link ).I have used promarkers to colour and pastel blue and grey chalk for the background.  l have used some lovely stripey DP to give it a spring feel.l  embossed a blue panel and using a lighter shade of blue DP, l mounted the image. A scallop nestie is used to mount the 'Little Clair' sentiment.4 little gem flowers are used to finish off . l have decorated the inside of the card,using the same stripey paper..All items used are from my stash ...

      Daffodil fields

      Afternoon everyone ,
      Its a lovely sunny day today ! So different from the stormy days we have been experiencing .Having said that, l think the rainy days have helped the seeds l planted last month come on a treat.I have masses of little seedlings sprouting everywhere ! The problem is l can't remember the names of any of them , so l will be in for a very pleasant surprise  later on when they start to flower hehe
      Talking of flowers...l want to share this 5x5 card with you. The image is from the ' The Big One' CD.I have decoupaged the pretty image .I have found that most of these images from the ' Trinitage ' section,  have been so easy to cut out ,and not at all fiddly.I have mounted the image onto some green card stock and then onto some lovely fresh, blue and white DP all from my stash ,along with 4 little pearls.The inside is also decorated using the same image ,card & paper.

        Bits n Bobs

        Afternoon everyone,
        The card l am sharing today is one that is made up from 'Bits and Bobs'.. The card blank is a green 5x5 and  l have used an X Cut border punch ( flower Doily) on the card edge and on the edges of the green gingham paper.I mounted the kanban topper onto a silver mirri card, scalloped  nestie. l love seeing pink and green together, so l have used a piece of pink gingham paper and finished it off with two silver peel off borders and green polka dot  satin ribbon with a pink card candi.I added a little button in the corner just to balance out the card..

          Mum To Be

          Afternoon everyone,
          I have had Sara ( my daughter ) over for a few days, so thats the reason behind my lack of blogging. Its always lovely when she gets her two days off together, as she can get the shuttle flight over from Barcelona and be here in Mallorca in 30 mins.
          The card l am showing today is a 6x6 ivory coloured card blank.The stamped image is ' Pregnant Tilda' I won this stamp a while back from Bev Rochester's weekly candy giveaway. The flower,Glittered Brad,Buttons,gold peel offs ,ribbons, pearls and butterflies are all from my stash..I am still determined to carry on with the plan to 'Use It Up '. The gingham and calender design papers were a gift from my good friend Barbara ( still trying to get her to make a blog ).l have coloured the image in with watercolour pencils  and chalked the background . I distressed the edges of the card with 'shabby shutters'.

          Happy Easter everyone

          Evening all,
          Hoping everyone is having a good start to the Easter Holiday .The weather has not been kind so far, its been really miserable today and we have had rain, its so unsettled !l feel so sorry for the tourists, I hope tomorrow will be better for them.
           I thought I would show you a  card today made using a 5x5 white card blank.The vintage car image is from the ' The Big One ' La Pashe CD. I am still doing well using up all my older papers and scraps , so everything on this rather simple card, comes from my stash.I have carried on the theme on the inside of the card...

            Spring delights

            Afternoon everyone,
            What a difference today in the weather..Overcast and rather chilly! Totally different from days ago when the beaches had families enjoying the sunshine and some fun beach activities..I drove past this morning to see tourists back in cardigans and hoodies and just one person on the beach, the guy hiring out the 'Pedalos'..Hope we get the sunshine back soon !
            The card l am sharing today uses a 6x6  white card blank.I have followed a sketch by Lyn over at Quirky Crafts challenge.The papers ,glitter card , flower ( recycled),pearl and butterfly embellishments are all from my stash . I have watercoloured the image that came free with a mag .I also used a Nestie to cut out the image..
