Genuine boy........

Hi to all on this wet & windy Saturday! I hope the weather isn't dampening your day & you're enjoying whatever it is you're up to. Me, I'm enjoying a bit of crafting whilst I've got the chance but thought I'd pop this lil card on to show you.
Again I made this for the same cutie as with the last card but this one was from me & mine.

Image is one which I received from Michelle last year when she kindly organised a Secret Sister swap, Michelle being my SS. I've coloured him in with my Copics.....I just love using them!
All papers, embellies & lettering are from another digi kit I got from Sweet Shoppe Designs called 'Father knows best'. Again I fell in love with this kit as soon as I saw it, the denims, ginghams & various other patterns work so well together.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend & thanks for dropping by ttfn,

Happy 1st Birthday!!!......

This is a card I made recently for a lil cutie who will be one on Friday. My friend asked if I could make a card for Alfie from his big sisters, & this is what I came up with.
All papers, lettering & images are from a digital download kit "Sweet Safari" which is from Sweet Shoppe Designs. As soon as I saw it I loved it, its soooooo cute!
The letters & images have been double mounted onto thick card, to give the effect of chipboard & to add dimension.

My friend thought it was great but more importantly the girls liked it, so job done!!! lol.
And guess what????...........I think I just might have found my mojo.........hehe
Many thanks for popping by, Kerry xxx

Get better soon!!!......

Here we have a card I made last week (which probably got the mojo kick started). This was for a very special request from my friend's lil girl.
Setting the scene, last week my friend went into hospital for an op. (of which all is now well on the mend) Her daughter who is six asked me if I could make a card for her Mom, explaining exactly what she wanted on it & drawing me a lil sketch of where it was to be! It has to be said she is a budding crafter herself & damn good too!!!
So this is what I did for her.

Papers, Laura Ashley & Coordinations, flowers punched & larger ones made with Craftwork Cards template. Alphas from a digital download kit from Sweet Shoppe Designs.

I hope you all have a fab weekend & get the chance to enjoy the lovely weather!

Copics & Cards!!!.....

Hi there all, I hope you are well & enjoying this lovely weather we're having at the moment.......let's hope it can last as long as possible!
Many thanks to everyone who left comments on my last post, they really are most appreciated.

Well, I took myself off to the NEC at the weekend & Jools & myself wondered around the stalls trying to find yummy goodies. For anyone else who went I don't know if you felt the same but I was a little disappointed. Maybe it was just me but there didn't seem to be as many stalls, or should I say the ones which I was hoping for. That said I did manage to spend!
My best buy been a handful of Copics. I had had one for a while (which I received as part of a blog candy from Vicki) & kept meaning to get some more.

Having played with them since the weekend its now clear that I NEED to buy more.........lots more!!!! lol I love them.

So, needless to say I've been making cards......YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I really enjoyed making this card. The image was given to me in a RAK, PP's are from various digital downloads which I had printed out a while back, lace & eyelets are from stash. The ribbon was white & I've coloured with it with one of the Copics to match the image.

Again, this image was sent to me in a RAK & the ribbon started out white. It has had the same 'Copic' treatment to match the colours as used on the image.
I'm quite pleased with how the images have turned out but as with most new things think I need to practice. But, something tells me I'll enjoy doing so!

Over the next few days I'll pop a couple of other cards on that I've managed to do, & try to get round to some much needed & overdue blog hopping!
Bye for now, Kerry xxx

Not fallen off the edge of the earth!!!.....

Hello all, long time no post.....from me that is!!!
As the title says 'I haven't fallen off the edge of the earth!' lol, however crafting has of late. My mojo truly has left my building.

Having started the new year with good intentions & wanting to craft......I just haven't & to be honest I haven't wanted to! My things have all been packed up & put away & that's where they've stayed. I even toyed with the idea of getting rid, but decided that might be a little
Think I'd got to a point where I was just fed up with crafting............there, that feels better now I've 'said' it.

I have been asked to make a few cards for friends of late so if I can manage to make them I'll pop them on &, I'm hoping that a trip to the NEC at the weekend will help.......well it's worth a try lol.

Thanks to the peeps who have asked where I am & my apologies for not visiting my fabby blogging buddies, as soon as I'm back into things I'll be popping by!

Hugs to all, Kerry xxx
