Cheeky little monkeys......

First of all a big shout out to Tammi over in tropical dreams as i recieved my fab blog candy from her today so thanks hon!! - just a shame i wont be able to play with them until i come back from my jollies -just 2 more sleeps - right now to business this first card is for someone who is not a "girly girl" and likes cute.. but not too cute... lets hope its ok, ive used my new monkey stamp from funky kits, coloured him with promarkers then stamped him on some card scraps and cut out the jumpers to make him more funky, hope you like him!! The other cards were for fathers day and just a blokey card - but proof i havnt been slacking.Thanks for stopping by x Debs x

Whoop Whoop!!

Whoop Whoop!! Well first of all i need to tell you i won my first challenge this week with sunday sketch and stamp. I won some fab digital stamps from http://www.crafts4eternity.co.uk/ perfect for teenage cards (havnt had chance to try them yet though!!). This week i promised my poor husband that i would have a break from the cards and have a little quality time ....... but as you can see i ended up making a couple of wedding cards for a work collegue whos daughter is due to get married in cyprus . I figure i may as well crack on and get a few more done now so watch this space :-) Thanks for stopping by Debs x

daisy and dandelion challenge 13 - black and white

Good evening , my friend asked me to make her a card with "thinking of you" with "those nice bears you have" so i figured i may as well combine it with a challenge!! So this is my entry to the daisy and dandelion challenge, which this week had a black and white theme, the background papers are Clare Curd and ive coloured Squeak with my promarkers but thought the card needed a little splash of colour so everything pink is from my stash. Hope you like it. hugs debs x

Sunday Sketch and Stamp challenge # 3 / my first Tilda

How exciting, another challenge and my first Tilda. Still practicing with my new pro markers but think im starting to get the hang of it - only time will tell. Only disapointment is that the main photo looks a little dark - the colours are much brighter in "real life" . Papers are by papermania -Clare Curds signature range and the little jewels and flower are from my stash. Really enjoyed this challenge, i dont often enter as ive been quite busy with my sisters wedding invites but ive nearly finished - just the insides to do now!!! Thanks once again for dropping by all your comments are much appreciated x Debs x
