Been making some spring-influenced cards, green and sparkly, just the way I like them :)
The bottom one is for the Sketch Saturday challenge blog, the top one was just for fun cos I'd just bought new digi images from Mo Manning's shop :)
Right that's me for the night, off to watch Greys.....

Twisted Card Sketch #004

I love doing these sketches, they are such good fun, such a pleasure to do too.
This one was done for a good friend who left on maternity leave recently and was a good excuse to use up some of my buttons ;)
The stamps were those of the fab Kim Hughes and I believe that the paper is Crate :)

Today is.....

My big girl's birthday :)
Happy birthday Natalie: number 1 and the most amazing young woman.
Here's your last school photo, just to embarrass you ;)
Love you loads, from the Taylors xXx

My First Twist

Wow, I'm so late updating my blog for this. I had a very busy weekend and didn't have much chance to switch on my computer so here is my first twisted card for Twisted Sketches :)

My excuses for the weekend mainly lay in going to Alexandra Palace with Sarah and Soo to buy all necessary stash :) What do you mean? Of course I needed all of it ;)

I think that the above card is mainly made from Prima papers and flowers. I finished off the flower centres with gorgeous embellishments from Hobby House Crafts

3D Jean and Scattered Scarlet

The fabulous supplies shop known as 3D Jean now has a design team (full of fabulously talented artists) and a great blog.
Just a brief post from me to go and check out the shop, the blog and the ladies on Jean's DT, a feast for the eyes (and stash supplies) ;)

Time off = time to play.... yes?

I think I went a bit silly....

Are you a fan of Stampin Up products?

I have just started to use their 'spots' Little versions of their ink pads and they are so good that apart from stazon black and colorbox chalk in charcoal, I don't want to use another type of ink again!!!
I get them from Sarah and she has a special offer on her blog for inks and pens from SU. Please go to this link to get more details.
I'll be back with a 'couple' of cards when I've finished editing xoxoxox

A belated Happy Easter, Happy Birthday Megan (my beautiful niece) and happy because my wonderful stepson is staying for the week :) I have a cold but I don't much care about that as they seem to appear whenever I stop for a holiday and anyway, it's only a cold...
I got so excited about being on the Twisted Card Team that I completely forgot to pay attention to which sketch to do first so I did the wrong one. But I don't care really cos give me a sketch and I'll make a card. Sooooo here's my interpretation of sketch #1

My Minds Eye paper, Stampin Up stamps, and I think it's Little Yellow Bicycle stickers. And a whole load of distress inks
