Finally.... a few more cards

Pin It
Hello all
It has been a while since I posted, but not because I have not been around just because all my time has been taken up by looking at all the fab blogs that are around...
I have made a few more cards and also now got loads and loads of ideas that I want to use, I also think that I should get involved in some of the challenges that are around as I do sometimes find it hard to just sit down and make a card, but with the sketch challenges that I have been looking at, I feel that I get a lot of inspiration, so next weekend I am going to have a go!
Here what i have been up to this week.
Card 1
I love this stamp... This card was not made for anything in particular just wanted to use the image that I had coloured in. The Stamp is from Elzybells and card and ribbon from my bits.
Card 2
I bought this stamp quite a while ago and coloured her in, but the image is quite big so had to make an A5 card to make sure that she did not look out of place. The stamp is from Lily & Milo by Rachelle Anne Miller, paper from DCWV, flowers and ribbon from stash.
Card 3
This is made from one of my favourite stamps at the moment. This is Martha with flowers from Spiral Whispers, by the very very talented Kerry Steptoe. The papers from DCWV and bits from my stash.
Thank you for looking!

Favourite Blogs added

Pin It Hi all I have spent the last couple of nights 'blog-hopping' to get ideas about what I should be writing on here...... WHAT fabulous sites are out there...... I have enjoyed looking at each and every one, it feels like a whole new community has been started with the craft bloggers! I have linked the sites that I will be back to visit in my favourites, but I am sure that they are many more out there that I will be adding in the next few weeks. Thank you to Janet and Stacey for there lovely comments on my cards, and in the next few days I will be sure to leave comments on all my favourite items too. Got some more new stamps to try out today so will get them uploaded later.... in the mean time, have a lovely day all. Hugs Sam x PS - take a look a the lovely candy that Kerry has on her blog........ has to be worth a peek !

Few more cards...

Pin It Evening
Now that I have got myself into the hang of this, I have decided to upload a few more photos as I have plenty sat on my PC ready to show you all.
Number 1...
This one again was made as a commission for a couple celebrating their engagement. The theme was holidays and this couple loved to jet set, lets hope they like it!
Number 2...
A card made for my husband for our 2nd wedding anniversery. One thing that is great about having a mum in law that also makes cards is that I always get a lovely card in return, as he asks Mum to make one for me!
Number 3...
My first attempt at decoupage, I quite like this card, needs something else though i think....
Thanks for looking...

First cards uploaded

Pin It Evening all, just finished a couple of cards and thought that I should really start to add some for you all to see....
Firstly is a card made with my new Spiral Whisper stamp, designed by Janet Roberts. I am sure that I will have many many more for you to see in the next few weeks as these stamps are fab!
My Second card is for my nephew's 1st birthday this week, which I nearly did not remember as I must have forgot to put in on my calender as the start of the year..... thank you Mum C for the reminder! This card was made by cutting out the number 1 from a 12x12 paper that I had and matting and layering to get the effect. I am quite pleased with how this one turned out.
And lastly, a commission that I did for a new baby..... I am sure that new baby cards will always be my favourite, they really make me smile as I am doing them!
Thank you all for looking, I would love you to leave a comment....
Till next time

Welcome all and I've done it

Pin It Well if you are reading this, then I have managed to set up a blog for myself, otherwise I am sat here talking to myself over and over...... (please respond if you get to see this message, just for my own sanity!) I have decided to set this up to show people my cards and designs with a hope in the future to start selling. Please feel free to have a look around and I would love to hear your thoughts and of course any improvements that I can make. Take care Hugs Sam x
