Upwards and Onwards

Almost the last day of October and the spookiest night of the year, however do you know what isn't spooky...
This adorable image by Heidi! As soon as she put it up to use I had to have it and knew the perfect card to use it on! It was like a magically crafting inspiration moment, the image and then the perfect sentiment.

So here is my leaving card for a girl at work who left last week! 

Balloon Birdie is available here:

Coloured in with Promarkers:

Birdie: Pastel Blue, Blue Pearl and Cornflower
Balloon: Amethyst, Orchid and Blossom
Outline: April Shower

See you all in November!

Beer Monster

Make card he asks, make a card for a guy on the team he asks! 
ARGH! Mens cards always trouble me, however luckily for this individual I did have the perfect image... hehehe along with some perfect manly papers!

Freebie stamp from Polly Crafts awhile back, coloured in with promarkers (don't ask me which I've since tidy it up, sorta lol) and a printed sentiment using a download font from www.dafont.com
Oh and to finish... GOOGLY EYE! lol

I am quite impressed with my beer colouring here

Oh but we're only 10 days away from my favourite-est night of the year <|:D

Coloured in this cute little guy from Kraftin' Kimmie the other week and got round to putting him on a card at yesterdays crop (see Gorgeous Girl post for details lol).  

I adore this halloween paper, so have left the card quite minimal as every time I went to add a new element a section of the paper I liked got covered.  I did however add 3 doodlebug halloween gems (that I've had YEARS) and the cute little bat which is was popped out of decopage set by Daisy and Dandelion.

Roll on spooky candy night :D

Went to celebrate my lovely friends Cals 50th birthday yesterday at the Rochdale Crop, however being the fool that I am stayed up faaaaar too late Friday night and was cream crackered most of Saturday followed by major food coma after stuffing myself on the buffet that was put on! 

However I did manage to create this, using a LO from Creative Craft World and some gorgeous Oriental papers (cos my girls are chinese cresties, get it lol).

Inked blossoms using vintage photo, dusty concord and marmalade distress inks. 
Lettering were in fact white thickers (pinched off my WONDERFUL friend Ruth), which I think coated in vintage photo and stamped some more blossoms on with dusty concord. 

Liddle bit of bling (though wilko gems and they fall off if you look at them! Will need to go back over them with glossy accents to secure!)

Miss Penelope Ursa Brownbear with flowers punched from the papers

Baby Belle and a ring of gems

Altered thickers lettering and a little bit of journalling.
