I Was Country When Country Wasn't Cool

Inspired by one of my favourite country songs (I love country music *g*) 'I Was Country when Country Wasn't Cool' - I used Sydney from Pollycraft coloured with promarkers: marine, sandstone, caramel, cinnamon, burnt orange, blush, pale pink, warm grey 2, canary, honeycomb, spice, terracotta, lipstick red, poppy, ruby and berry red.

The papers and embellishments are from Hot of the Press, the 'Home Grown' Paperset and the sentiment is stamped from stampendous, in bravo burgundy ink.

"True Love Stories Never End"

It's been a few weeks since I've been on and real life has been hectic - my Mum had surgery on a brain aneurysm, amongst more general madness. She's going pretty well now, so I had a bit of time to dedicate to some crafting and made this card.

I used teresa collins fabrications papers layered on brown card. The image is from Spesch Stamps, coloured with promarkers: sandstone, caramel, cinnamon, vanilla, blush, soft peach, dusky rose, pastle pink, pear green, marsh green, olive green, sky blue, shale, cool grey 4, slate, honeycomb, spice, terracotta, lilac, lavender and amethyst.

Beauty and the Beast is one of my favourite fairytales (and disney movies, lol!)

I used lace, a button, flower and pearls to embellish, as well as a cute little key/heart charm.

I think this will end up being an anniversary card for two friends who's anniversary is in September. She loves Disney and will appreciate it for that alone and luckily, the husband isn't the sort to take offence at being cast as 'the beast' *g*

Happy (70th) Birthday Dad

I made this card for a friend, whose Dad is turning 70 in a few months (what, I'm prepared, so sue me, lol!)

He likes boats and I found this gorgeous harbour image Cornish Heritage Stamps and coloured it partially with promarkers: sandstone, caramel, cinnamon, spice, honeycomb, cool grey 3, warm grey 2, warm grey 1, pear green, marsh green, olive green, pastel blue, cyan and berry red.

The papers are from Authentique's Fresh paper pack, layered on navy blue card from papermill direct. The sentiment is computer generated. And I used bakers twine, charms and pearls to embellish.
