Memory lane

Hello crafty friends how are you today hasn’t the weather been glorious the last few days, it’s a little cloudy here today but still warm so I do hope it lasts I love the sun and warm weather.
I have 2 cards left that haven’t posted on here that I made for the launch of Winnies Special Moments .
My first card is an 8x8” and Nikky kind of inspired this card as she was talking about how this collection reminded her of herself and boy who she used to hang out with when they were kid, well it brought back very similar memories for me. The lad I used hang with was my next door but one neighbour he was just a bit younger than me but we used go off playing most nights after school when we were little playing batman and robin(he always made me play robin lol) or he’d bring his action man figures round and I get my Sindy dolls out(yes I was Sindy girl not a Barbie) or we’d go off on our bikes. This friend was called Wayne I know he FB friend with at least one of my cousins but I haven’t seen or spoken to him in years now. I always remember he had curly hair and when he had it all cut off once I didn’t speak to him for weeks (how could cut those curls lol). But enough with the trips down memory lane lets get on with the card.

I have used paper from this collection but I also used papers from the winnie in Winterland collection as well (the red & green) I wanted the image to be the main focal point on the card.
The image is called Tire swing and I coloured with my polychrome pencils and I added one of quotes that came with the download to alongside it 

I used some of the arrow embellishments which I embossed with red and blue embossing powder then added these to the card after the image was added

So there you have my first card for today and I will see you later with my final make for this collection

Inspirational post for Polkadoodles

Hi  everyone I’m a little late with my card for this fortnights challenge things have been mad here with one thing and another but not to worry won’t go into all that!
So this week is inspiration week for our challenge over at Polkadoodles of course for you lovelies the challenge is always Anything goes but for us DT girls it was use 2 or more papers.

I have made a really simple digital designed card using 4 papers from the Winnie Special Moments collection and then used one of the coloured images for a topper and of the quotes for a sentiment put them together printed off and bingo a really quick and easy card for any late birthday (hope I haven’t forgotten anyone)

Love you winnie

Hello again I’m back with another make from this GORGEOUS new collection from polkadoodles  I am loving this Winnie collection it’s just so cute!!

For this card I have made an A5 card this time and kept it CAS (shock gasp how did you do that lol) I know but I managed somehow hehe

So I used just a small slip of paper for the edge then coloured the image (huggy bear) with my prisma pencils, the sentiment comes with the collection as well then I made some card candy to embellish the card and there you have it

So there you have my 2nd card for this collection I do hope you like it and I will see you tomorrow with another

Rocco go explore

Hello I super excited to be part of this fabby new release everyone loves Winnie, who can resist her and Rocco they are adorable together or apart.
So I will get straight on to my card today I have decided for my first card to make a boy’s card I don’t often make male cards unless for family members and when I saw some of the images in this download collection they were just to adorable not to use.
So my card is 8x8” (yep you know) the papers are from the collection as well(link below) I distressed the edges and inked with distress inks. While I was printing the papers and image I went into the embellishment folder and printed off 2 of the arrows as well then embossed them with coloured embossing powder to give them a shine and make them a little stronger then I glued them onto the back of paper clips and attached to the paper a great embellishment I think 

The image is called Rocco exploring and that gave me an idea for the sentiment so I printed this at the same time as the image as I wanted them both together, that’s the great thing about digital stamps as adaptable. You do get loads of quotes and sentiments with the download though.
I coloured the image with Prisma pencils then masked the image off to make the background and inked with distress ink.

So there you have my first card for this collection I do hope you like it and I will see you tomorrow with another
