Yep you guessed it another Easel card!!

Hiya folks hope you are all having a fabby weekend, weather a big dodgy here so we're having a "just chillin" kind a day. The kids are doing a bit of everything - playing their games, jigsaws and my little angel is having a fab time with pens, paper and yikes scissors! Im blog hopping and hubby is tinkering with the light fitting in the kitchen so come tea time I may be cooking in the dark!!!! Anyway, on to my card and as the title suggests yes its another easel card on top of a four drawer box. Again its another one I have been asked to make but for a girl's 21st Birthday this time and the only stipulation was to use brown, pink and cream.

I used last weeks Friday Sketchers sketch but missed the deadline! The papers I've had for so long I can't remember what they are. My flowers are from Hobbycraft. I went a bit wild with the old Stickles its on the flowers and box as well as the card. My Miss Anya is coloured with my beloved copics I'm slowly getting there with them but I still end up putting a few images in the bin before I get one I'm 100% happy with. The key charm is actually from a pack of six I bought from the pound shop.
This is a side view of my card/box. Now you all know I'm photographically challenged so for me this photo aint half bad!

Lastly I'm going to enter it into the Create 4 Fun challenge which this week is a colour recipe of brown, cream and pink and also Cute Card Thursday which is Dimensions.

Thats it from me peeps off to do a bit of blog hopping and wherever you are I hope you all have a lovely weekend.

Take care

Just Peachy!

Hello everyone I hope you're having a good weekend. We've done the rounds today and visited both my mum and MIL so tomorrow I don't have to go anywhere and you never know I may even get breakfast in bed or a lie in (now we all know thats not gonna happen!!).

Anyway, stop waffling girl and just get on with it - so without further ado this is my little effort for my mum tomorrow and I did the same for mil (so no-one can accuse me of favouritism!!).

Yes I know its another easel card but I think I may have mentioned once or twice that I'm really into doing these at the minute. Anyway, my stamp is obviously a Magnolia its such a pretty image just love it and coloured with copics. Paper is DCWV and cardstock is Bazzill. Pearls and other stuff is from stash. Sentiment was actually a freebie stamp from a magazine which I had forgotten I had.
Well I'm having withdrawal symptoms as I've been out all day and not had a chance to hop around and see what everyone's been up to so I'm off now for a little blog hopping. I hope you all enjoy the rest of the weekend.
Take care folks.

Black & White with a dash of red!

Afternoon folks happy Wednesday to you all and what a glorious sunny day it is here feels really spring like although the wind is a bit nippy still.
Thought I'd show you another four drawer box and easel card I made following Kirsten's tutorial again - if you fancy a go the link to her blog is here. So love making these at the moment. Gone with a black and white theme with a splash of red. This one is a commission for a 40th birthday so I hope they like it! It always worries me doing commissions just in case its not what they want but I didnt really have any guidelines for this one so I had free reign!!

I used a Whiff of Joy stamp, coloured with my beloved copics and cut out with nestabilities. Cardstock used is Bazzill, paper is from Papermania Capsule collection and the rest is from stash. Used a sketch from Friday Sketchers and you can't see it on the piccies but I've actually used eyelets unders the bows and the ribbon is actually threaded through them.
Anyway, thats about it from me today folks. Still have my mother's day cards to do yet but at least its Thursday tomorrow and both my kiddies are at school all day so I should get some time to play.
Hope you're having a great day whereever you are and enjoying some spring like weather!
Take care,
