Another sketch card

Just a real quickie to show off another card I made using the same sketch that I posted last week. This one is destined for another lovely friend who's an absolute gem and whose kindness has got me out of a few holes this summer holiday! Thanks for popping in!

A card for a special friend

OK, I studied and studied Ila's fabulous tutorial on using Prismas with OMS and, for the first time ever, I was really pleased with how it turned out, so Thank You Ila - your tutorial is FAB!!! And, as I was making a card for my lovely friend Sam I really wanted the technique to work well and I am now addicted to it. Here is the card I made. Thanks for popping in!

A Sketch Challenge for you

I know, I know, there's loads of them out there but I sat here yesterday making sketches with my PSE and I decided to share my first one with you - please feel free to put your own take on this and leave me a link to your blog so that I can come and have a drool over your creation too!

Here's the sketch:
and here's my card:

and here's a couple of other cards I've made this weekend:

Thanks for popping by - I hope some of you will get your Tilda's and Edwin's out and have a go with my sketch! :o)

New Stamps

Oooh, some gorgeous new stamps from Magnolia's latest releases landed on my doormat on Friday and here are the samples I have made with them.

The first two are from the new School collection and are soooo sweet
The next two I feel a bit silly about because I cannot find which collection they are from but they are so pretty and girly that I just wanted to play with these all the time. Here are the two samples I created with them and I daresay they'll be available on the site very soon

And the final two (for now!) are my most favourites and they're from the new Travel collection

You can't really see from some of the photos that I have been hotfoiling again, just a touch here and there to add a bit a metallic look in parts, so here's a close up of Edwin's cases so that you can get an idea

And just for now, that's it - these lot are off to Sweden tomorrow, hopefully to arrive in time for Magnolia's conventions. I hope you like them, and Thank You for popping in!

A couple of Sketch Challenges

A first for me - Friday Sketchers - I've only just discovered this blog so I had to have a go - lots of Magnolia images on display here which is what inspired me. Here is this weeks' sketch:
and here is my take on it:
Unbelivably this fabulous paper by Craft Buyer had almost all of the sketch incorporated into it already, I just played around with it!

Then I found this sketch on Bea's blog (I'm sure it was bigger than this???):

and this was really handy because I needed to make a card for a FB who is in need of a hug right now and I wanted to send her a hug through the post, so I used this sketch to help me and here's what I did:
