Black and Red Card.

Here is a card I made today from a "Mo Manning" digital stamp coloured with promarkers and flex-markers. This is made with a person in my mind who I want to send it too. The black card on the top left is velvet card embossed via the cuttlebug.

My Favourite Digital Stamps.

Thought would share a link to my favourite site for diggie stamps. I am collecting diggie stamps from the loverly "Mo Manning" over at "Mo's Digital Pencil".

Please if you like her work hop over and buy a few as they are STUNNING and well worth the cost.

Here are 2x xmas cards I made from her diggie stamps, some of my own cardstock and my faithful promarkers and flex-markers.

"You're Very Special" card.

Had a mad urge to craft today (boxing day 2011).
Here is the card that came out of my craft session.
This card is inspired by the backing card - a loverly gift from a gorgeous friend in Australia.

Inside of card.

Back of card.
The backing card on the card was part of a gorgeous gift from a loverly friend Tegan (from "Teegs scrap n cards"). It came all the way from Australia.

I coloured the stamped image with flex markers and found the card was the perfect match to the image. Hope ya like the card Tegan this is inspired by you hun.

Copper and Gold Xmas Card.

Decided to make another image I had stamped and coloured a night or two ago into another xmas card as it is always good to have spare cards as I usually forget someone.

Ooopppsss Another Xmas Card.

Yep another xmas card I made for someone I nearly forgot. Sure I will find someone else I forgotten so not going to say it is the last now lol.

One Last Xmas Card.

Hopefully this is my last xmas card to make for us to send out. Nearly forgot to make one for the person this is for but while wrapping xmas presents it reminded me of this person and I have made this card. Hopefully I haven't forgotten anyone else.

My Colouring Obsession.

Okay everyone knows I love my colouring in of stamped images and diggies stamps well here are the pictures of my pen collection.

Firstly my mini caddy from papermania has a full set of promarkers (with their end dots on) and 6x letraset metallic markers and several duplicates I have in my main used colours. In total 183 pens in that mini caddy plus a bag of promarker fine tips.

And also my collection of all the currently released flex markers - stored in 2x Letraset wallets.

I store all my pens flat but the mini caddy is upright only when I am using the pens. So there you have the main implements in my colouring obsession.

Apologies and a few toppers.

Apologies for lack of blogging this last week but there have been a few problems and crafting got put on the back burner while things got sorted.

I thought I would upload some toppers I made now I am crafting again (not full cards) that I coloured in with my new promarkers. I have gone back to promarkers for one reason or another and am really pleased I did. They are right for me it seems.

Hope you like the toppers.

"Keep It Simple" Rocker card.

Have successfully made my first rocker card today. I have made it specifically for the 'Crafty Bloggers Network' challenge "Keep It Simple".

I used my new x-cut shape cutter system gift set (circles), some smooth white stamping card, memento ink, pinflair foto-glue, fizzy moon stamps, a black alcohol marker pen (to make the black card) and I also used my set of copic glitter pens to fill-in the few selective areas of colouring I have done.

Am rather chuffed by the results and the fact my first rocker card worked.

A Colourful Birthday Card.

Decided to try and craft today despite how I am feeling and this is the card that came out of my crafting session. I ended up getting really inky and messy making this and given I don't normally like messy crafting I think it turned out ok.

Hope you like it.

A Quick Card.

I am still recovering from major oral surgery and also have been told now I have a 2ndry severe infection ontop of a problem with my jaw bone but I wanted to try and make a quick card just to get some stress release.

I also wanted to say THANKYOU to all my friends and followers who have shown me immense support.

This quick xmas card is for all of you - THANKS.

It is made with white card, linen papaermania cardstock and embossed transfers and I used pinflair foto glue to stick it together and a xmas sentiment stamp. Oh and I added some red holly berry card candi.

Quick Update.

Sorry for lack of posts but I have been looking after a sick mother, a poorly dog and I myself had major oral surgery less than 48hrs ago.

I am also sad to announce that due to a disagreement and problems I have stepped down from my DT spot on "The crazy challenge blog".

Hopefully I will get back to crafting asap but please bare with me as I recover from my surgery.

Want to say a BIG THANKYOU to those friends out there and followers who are supporting me right now, I appreciate it more than you will ever know.
