Very naughty!


After a lovely but warm walk with the dogs yesterday at our favourite park I came home to decorate these little beauties!
I know I should have dusted them with a whisper of icing sugar but you know I have got my waist to think of!!  (cough cough!)
Having licked the spoon I was sugared up enough to buzz loudly but Steve still insisted on doing what he does best: the taste test with a mug of tea.
Apparently I'm going to be allowed to make them again he says!

Im still wedding party making so will be back with something to share soon, enjoy your week and thanks for your visit!

New Beginnings


Here's a little card I made using an image and papers from Pink Petticoat.  Id not used these particular papers before but I really like them so Im planning on printing off a few more ready for some future cards.

Ive made this card for Emily, her story is over at Dustin Pike's blog.  Emily is a poorly little girl and there is a worldwide call for cards for her and Dustin has supplied a set of super images to use.  This one was precoloured and I thought that's all we could use but having seen a few other cards now I can see that you can colour your own.  I'm going to post this off to her before the hike in postage hits us here in the UK!

Back later with another share, enjoy your day,

Pearls and Swirls CCC 25.03.12


Just a quick visit to share my CCC card, this time Hazel chose Pearls & Swirls for the theme, I really wasn't sure what I was going to do for this challenge so I scoured my image for inspiration; here is my card.

The great image is from Bugaboo and the Twinkles paper is by Pink Petticoat.  If you'd like to get ahead of the game this xmas and make a card a fortnight then just get in touch!  The rest of the girls are listed on my sidebar so why not pop over and see what theyve made too!

Congratulations Claire & Mark!


Just wanted to share a card I made for a special blogging friend who is getting married today.  I know she's received it so I'm happy to share it now.

Claire and Mark are tying the knot in Coventry and look at the weather!  I'm sure she is having the time of her life, it makes you go all tingly doesn't it but then I am up to my eyes with wedding stationery for my girl so maybe I am just in Wedding mode right now!

This is the first time that Ive used this style of card for someone other than my girls and Im really pleased with how it turned out, Ive even lined the insides to coordinate which is a first!

This image I've had for absolutely ages having seen Pinky use it beautifully a while ago and this was the first print for it; I cut it close with just a minimal white edge then trimmed again onto pearlised ivory card.
The wedding cake, wedding rings, horseshoe and hearts dies are by Quickutz, the hearts are nesties.  I used a couple of embossing plates and the blue card is from Papermill.

I know I'll be thinking of them for the whole day and I'm only sorry I couldn't go and see her so I'm really looking forward to seeing her photos!

This weekend starts the UK's British Summertime and all I can say is 
'Bring It On', we are due a super nice Summer and it will be worth losing an hours sleep for!
Have a super weekend everyone,
Keryn xx

Exercise is a dirty word!

Good morning, I hope you are all well.  Ive been busy with my daughter's wedding stationery so have been busy in the background even if not here blogging!

Here's a card I made for a great niece, its a fun image from Bugaboo and some papers that I picked up on my first visit to Dunelm (talk about disappointing!).

Thanks for your visit and I hope you all have a super weekend.

Sketch & Stash # 83


Sharing a couple of cards today for a friends little one who turns 1 shortly.  Ive followed the sketch over at Sketch & Stash and put the sentiment on the opposite side so hopefully that will be ok.

The papers are by Pink Petticoat, border punch by MS and the sweet image is by Mo Manning.  The BP is 2 years old and I think Ive had the image for about the same time too so hopefully that is my old stash for the challenge.

This is the second card for George:

For this I paper pieced an image by Beccys Place and embossed some plain white card underneath.

I hope you like my cards and thanks for your visit.

All grown up!


Ive been making a few cards and here's one Id like to share with you today.

Ive seen blogging buddies using their Bugaboo images and posting today so it prompted me to enjoy a little Bugaboo humour too!
I played with a digi paper to add a dark brown circle too and the 2 checked mats are by DCWV (sacrilege actually having to cut into this beautiful pad but it had to be done!).

Ive spent many a lonely hour perusing Pinterest recently and found this gorgeous card

and thought WOW this is just gorgeous, so simple but effective so I set about having a dabble in my scraps and created these.

This comes with a warning though, it is very addictive so beware!

Id like to enter my Bugaboo card in to the challenges over at:
 Paper Shelter - anything goes
PaperTake Weekly - anything goes

Thanks for your visit,

Mellow Yellow


Just a quick visit to share a card Ive made for a great niece.  Ive used an image by one of my first blogging friends Claire who designs her own images and sells them over on Stitchy Bear Stamps.  Im using her Star Fairy so I opted to use a soft starshiny colour!

Ive used a little pearlised ivory card, pink petticoat papers, some glamour dust and a sprinkling of Crystal Ice glitter glue to finish it off!

Id like to enter this into the current challenge over at Fab'n'Funky which is 'mellow yellow'!

Thanks for calling in,

Jayden 5


Here's a card I've made for my great nephew, he is a special member of our family as he is the only one who is carrying my family name forward.  Quite unusual considering I was one of five kids yet only one child is able to do this! 

I just love Lili of the Valley images for boy/male cards, they really do them so well which makes my task a lot easier for me.  I've used up some scraps from a very very old pad I have along with some lovely green bazzil card.  The football is a Quickutz double die and I love having the opportunity to use it, something that doesn't happen often enough I feel.

Id like to enter this into the following challenges:
Secret Crafter - green for go
Simon Says - anything goes

Have a super week and thanks for calling in,
Keryn x
