Wee Suzi

Good Morning everyone, Firstly I would like to say a big "Hello" to all my new followers, and a big "Thank You" for all the beautiful comments I received on my last all do give me lots of love and encouragement...mwah!! love you all :O). I do love blog land lol!!
Any way  I spent most of my week blog hopping instead of cardmaking lol!!  You are such a talented lot lol!!!  I won a lovely prize from Whimsy stamps.. for commenting...  I was really chuffed... Thank you Denise :). Also I won Here Comes the Boys Challenge.. for my card for Steven...I was so excited lol!! Thank you Woo:)
I'm a bit late posting this week, due to my hopping instead of blogging lol!!
I've used the lovely digi image,  Wee Suzi from Sylvia her images..they are just sooo sweet!!
A bit disappointed with the finished card...I think it's a bit top heavy and I didn't really want the corner embellishment there, only realized I had stuck it down, when I had finished lol!! That Tacky glue from Wild Orchid Crafts..doesn't move!!! also if anyone doesn't know .. you CAN'T use certain stickles on printed images either, my flowers don't look too bad but they have gone a bit black!  I normally use glamour dust..but forgot to do it before I stuck everything to my card...that's when I used the stickles!
So here's my card..

Computer Guy

Good Evening everyone, Hope your week's been  good:)  Really busy at work at the moment as everyone is taking leave before the new holiday year starts. My card for today is a card I made for my son was last week Friday 13th.. He isn't a big card fan, but won't have a bought one now lol!! Does this ring a bell lol!!  Any how I have used a Mo Manning image called Computer Guy...and this is him to a "T" He has the same desk, everything around him like that and always a cup of coffee on the table...Even NO hair!!
I have used a sketch from - "Here Come The Boys".  It was a lovely sketch to work with, hope you like my card.

I decorated the inside the same - sorry couldn't get a good photo

This is a close up of the image - I did colour the screen 
but it doesn't show up very well on the photo

Entering for the following Challenges:

I was a bit scared at first when I down loaded this image, It looked a bit daunting at first, but I'm really pleased with the way it has turned out...couldn't do it without my lovely prismas.  I never thought I would be able to colour images, had a go with various pens..then Steven and Nicole bought me some Prisma's for Christmas last year and I ventured into a whole new world lol!! It took me ages before I ventured with them..scared of looking an idiot lol!! but I have gained confidence over the last 10 anyone out there who may have got some for Christmas or as a pressie, have a go they are really lovely to use!  
Sorry I'm waffling here, let me say good night, and thank you for stopping by, will be round to visit over the week-end.

Baby Girl

Good evening everyone,

Friday already, the temperature has really dropped here in Yorkshire, it feels more like Winter now lol!! Forgot to tell you I love Make it Monday inspiration blog, I've visited so many lovely blogs, and just love looking at all the stunning cards, also it cheers me up as some of you are just so funny, you make my day!! and I won 5 lovely digi images from Di's Digi downloads.  Di's shop is lovely and so many lovely images to choose from, do pop over there and take a look. Anyway on to my card... I have made this for Sketch Saturday and the whole card came together so nicely.  I was going to enter a few more challenges but ran out of ink in my printer, and my daughter Deb spent several hours sorting it for me...Thanks hun :0) so missed the deadlines! hope you like it.

For this card I have used a die cut from LOTV, sparkled her all up with stickles and mounted her on to lovely Bazzill card, cut with a spellbinders die. Papers are from Forever Friends "Pink Parfait"..lovely papers.  Flowers are carnations and roses from WOC crafts, and the sentiment is computer generated..lovely pearls are from Mei Flower. I would like to enter for the following challenges:

New Beginnings

Good afternoon everyone, what a week...hope the next months slow down a little as this one is going far too quickly lol!!  Firstly I would just like to welcome my new followers, and hope everyone has had a great New Year...Well on to my card for today, my neighbour and colleague has just had a new baby boy.  So my card today is all about "New Beginnings" I chose a Mo Manning image..isn't he gorgeous, but I had my problems, he's been coloured in more than once, as I struggle with skin and I wanted to do it with my prisma pencils, so lots of trial and error images lol!! I am really pleased how this last effort has turned out, tried lots of different colours and liked this one the best..the first one I coloured in looked like he had been sun tanning all afternoon and was like a red lobster lol!! I did enjoy making this card and isn't that ribbon from the ribbon girl gorgeous!  These papers I have used are also stunning and fit this little guy so perfectly!
