Hello everyone, Hope you are all ok and glad its Friday!!! I made this card in the week for the Color Throwdown Challenge
For the card I used Digital Image from Mo Manning - Bronte and Bella - coloured with Copics Background Paper - My Minds Eye - Penny Lane and DCWV - Citrus Matstack. Satin Ribbon from Stash Sentiment from Stash.
Well so much for the sunshine......the rays ceratinly didn't last that long as it is now raining and still very chilly........oh well that means we won't be venturing out today so I am staying indoors in my favourite place. I definetely feel inspired today and have made another card for a challenge that I haven't entered before. Its over on Daring Cardmakers and the challenge is
Easel Does it This weeks challenge is to make an easel card. There's a big clue in the title, huh? They are so very popular at the moment but I'm hoping at least some of you will be up for my extra "sting in the tail" to this Dare - I don't want it to be too easy, you know....what I'd really love is to see what type of shape (other than a square) you can come up with using the basic Easel card idea. So you can go for the easy option and make the simple version of the easel card, or if you're brave enough,go for the shaped option. Do you dare?
I used pearlescent cream card for the base. For the heart I used a heart shaped card that I have had in my stash for a while as the template. The Wedding Day and Congratulations sentiments are from Forever Friends - Going to the Chapel Clear stamps. Stamped with Versa Color Gold pigment ink. Prima Flowers with Card Candy from Crfatwork Cards for the centre.
Thanks for looking. I loved this challenge and already have another card idea in my head to have a go at......... See you all again soon. Hugs Sally xxx

For this card I have used a Digi image from Mo Manning - Danni & Taylor, coloured in with Copics. Background Paper - Coredinations and Making Memories Just Chillin. Glamour dust for added sparkle. Card Candy - Carftwork Cards Ribbon - Dovecraft and the Brad from Woodware. Thanks for looking. Hugs Sally xx
Its me again...... Hope you are all enjoying your Bank Holiday and hopefully most of you will be enjoying an extra day off work......Yippeee....

Hello its Sally here glad you have popped over to my blog. This is where I share my creations with you mostly made from paper.
I have been card making now for about 8 years and absolutely love it. I find crafting is a great escape and very relaxing. I tend to spend my spare time which isnt always that much doing some sort of crafting. I can sit for hours colouring images especially with Polychromo or Prisma pencils.
My most recent craft is crochet which I am learning slowly.
It would be great if you leave me a comment so I know you have been. I hope you find some inspiration here at my blog.
