Wednesday Stamper - Open Theme

Over at Wednesday Stamper the theme is an open
theme, so I thought I would enter this card I made
for my friend Anjie for her birthday.
I would also like to thank her for allowing me to use
the pic she took of it, she's a far better photographer
than me that's for sure lol
Stamp is by Inkadinkado.
I really want to mention where I got the
image of the lady from but I can't remember!!
If anyone recognises it then can you please let
me know :o)

DCM - Little Extra...

Over at DCM

This week we have a numerical Little Extra
challenge for you: "We've Got Your Number"
Numbers and Fun? Those two words don't often
appear in the same sentence, do they? Well, we'd like
you to have some fun with numbers and put a numeral
on your card - it's as easy as that.
In answer to Clare, yes the swirls are embossed in gold.
The card is coloured using Metalic rub on creams and the
stamp is from Crafty Individuals.

TMTA - Holiday

Over at TMTA this week the theme is 'Holiday'
I decided to use a photograph of my brother when
he was about 5yrs old (now 30!) as it reminds me so
much of family holidays when we were kids :o)

DCM - Pockets

Over at DCM this week the theme is 'Pockets'
Apologies for the scan, the stamped image is
actually on really light vellum and melts into the
card irl but really stands out on this :o(
Stamp is by Hampton Art Stamps and the paper
is from Diane's Daughters.
Just wanted to say thank you to everyone who takes
the time to comment on my blog, it's really appreciated
and inspires me to do more :o) xxxx

DCM - Haberdashery

Over at DCM the theme this week is 'Haberdashery' which
was a lot more difficult than I thought it would be!
Background is a SeeD's stamp and the image is a public domain
one which I found on Wikipedia.
The bit of Jute, pins, needle and thread are from my sewing box.

Citrus Colours Bookmark

Made this for a bookmark swap hosted by Angela
and the theme is 'Citrus Colours'. I used one of

it using Color Box chalk ink pads.

TMTA - Faces

This weeks theme over at
'Faces'. I decided to use a
photo of my late mum when
she was a teenager in the early
60's and manipulated it using
Paintshop Pro. Coloured with
Water colours and then stamped
the words ....you are my inspiration.
The pic on the left is the original I
used, wonder what she was thinking
at the time!! :o)
