Lie About Your Age

A quick CAS card this morning, I used an image from Kenny K, coloured with Promarkers: vanilla, blush, pale pink, caramel, cinnamon, spice, lipstick red, berry red, tea green, pear green, cornflower and china blue. The base card is cut with card from papermill direct, the sentiment is computer generated and I finished it off with a few gems and the lace edged punch from x-cut.

Birthday Wishes

Because the universe isn't entirely finished messing with me this year, I've developed an eye infection... *grumps* luckily I caught it early before it started affecting my vision, but it's still somewhat irritating... in a bid to ignore the annoyingness, I decided to get some crafting done and my nausea behaved long enough for me to do this card.

I used a stunning image from make it crafty and coloured her with promarkers: mond, blush, soft peach, coral, pear green, marsh green, olive green, sky blue, denim blue, china blue and tea green. The paper is from Teresa Collin's Fabrication pad, layered on navy blue card from papermill direct.

I used the x-cut lace punch on the bottom of the yellow panel. The sentiment is computer generated and I used pearls and ribbon from my stash to embellish.

Retro Birthday

This card so almost did not happen this morning (stupid nausea) but my sisters birthday is coming up next in a couple of weeks and I needed to get something made for her so I can post it on time.

I used images from Digi My World, coloured with promarkers: berry, poppy, ruby, lipstick red, coral, soft peach, soft pink, mustard, canary, vanilla, yellow, blush, lime green, denim blue, cool grey 4, slate, black, shale, burnt sienna, cinnamon, cocoa and spice.

The paper is from Jenny Bowlin's Family Tree pad. The sentiment is computer generated (I forget the font) and I added a few gems to embellish.

Boys Card

Two cards in a week, will wonders never cease... but I'm determined to kick nausea in the rear and get back to doing some crafting at least a few times a week, even if I can't work up to where I was at before.

Today we have a boys birthday card, using an image from pollycraft, coloured with promarkers: cinnamon, cocoa, blush, soft peach, warm grey 1, warm grey 2, slate, poppy, berry red, crimson and black.

The papers are all from my scraps box - in fact, except for cutting the card base I didn't use anything 'new' - and I used stickers for the sentiment.

I left it otherwise completely embellishment free, which is novel for me!

Birthday Card

Yes, I still lives! Just about! Stupid nausea is still plaguing me constantly and there is so much stress going on with other things right now, I might just implode, but for now, I is still alive and I really miss crafting, but it's just finding a time when I'm marginally less nauseous than the rest of the time and have nothing more pressing to do...!

Got this card made today, for a few challenges, I used:

Promarkers: pear green, marsh green, olive green, sandstone, caramel, cinnamon, cool grey 3, cool grey 4, warm grey 1, warm grey 2, black, honeycomb, gold and rose pink.
