LOTV 50th Birthday card

Hello one and all

So, last week I had time to play with my alcohol pens. I have a mixture is Spectrum Noir and ProMarkers. I think I like the grip and the tips of the ProMarkers best.  Maybe it's because I had the ProMarkers first, I'm not sure, but they just seem to be more liquidy......than the Spectrum Noir pens I have....dunno would love to have feedback from other alcohol marker uses since I am very much a Novice. we go, my card for my daughters sister in laws mum who turned 50.... 

So the sentiment is a free digi I picked up somewhere...I think it was  Desert Diva, I imported it into my Craft Artist software and added the 50. It's printed onto curious metal ice white and layered onto eyelet Spellbinders Nestibility. 

This is a close up of the LOTV image. I have the distressed doily die from Tim Holtz in the background.

Some stickles on the roses in the image and butterfly to finish .

That's it for now...have a Super Sunday!

And Remember to...........

                                       Keep it Krafty ..............until next time

LOTV Baby Girl Card

Hi everyone!

Can you believe it...I am Seems I've found a few minutes to load a new card I made this morning for our neighbors daughter who has just had a baby girl after two sons.... She must be so happy.

Anyway...had this image courtesy of HRH Amanda Harrod......and colored it with my ProMarkers....bears are HARD to color people!....

Anyway..this is my attempt...

I added some glossy accents to the centre of the's still busy drying.....yeah...I am impatient... ;-)

Added a pop of yellow to brighten up the card and some green ribbon to blend in with the green leaf scroll.

Cut the image with my circle Nestibility and the pink layer with my scallop Nestibility. The yellow die cut is also a spellbinders border die. Sorry have no idea where the DP is was from my off cut drawer....I am a hoarder of's just so hard to throw away good paper....;-) I know you all understand  >vbg<

Hope you like my attempt!

As always....wishing you a stampendous day and............

Happy Birthday to a 90 year old

Hi everyone....

I know it's been a while since my last post...I have been busy, but there's just been no time to blog about it... I don't know where the time goes...

I belong to an on line group and one of the ladies in America has a mum who is turning 90. She was hoping to surprise her mum with tons of cards from all over the world for her birthday. Now how can one resist!

This is what I came up with

It's an easel card with a LOTV image coloured in a mix of ProMarkers and Spectrum Noir pens.

I added glossy accents and glitter to the 'icing' and just plain glossy accents to the wings.

I know the colouring is not great, but we are on a major learning curve - happens in spurts when I have time...problem is.....when I finally get back to it again, I've forgotten what I had learned

That's it for now.....hope to be back soon

Don't forget to...........
