Wedded Bliss

Here are two cards I’ve made for a wedding we have this week.
This one is for the groom to give to his bride. The image is from Saturated Canary and she is called ‘Double Take’. The image is clean and simple and I kept the card to the same theme. It is colored with Promarkers and the colours I used were:
Hair – Mustard, sandstone, cinnamon and cocoa.
Skin – Dusky Pink, ivory and blossom.
Dress – Ivory, satin and vanilla.
Inside the card are the lyrics to the song ‘This Guy’s in Love with You’, which is to be their first dance.

I am entering this card in the challenge I Love Promarkers – Gold, silver, bronze.

The next card I can’t claim credit for; I got the idea from my friend Pam. The hearts were cut with my Cricut (Craft Room Basics). The paper flowers are handmade, also with the help of my Cricut.

I am entering this card in the challenge Fantabulous Cricut – Wedded Bliss.


I hope you like my wedding cards. Please leave a comment if you have paid a visit. x


Purple cupcakes & a card

I made this card for a 21st Birthday using a Freebie image by Saturated Canary.  I coloured the image with the following Promarkers:

  • Cool Grey 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 & Black
  • Lavender, Lilac & Amethyst
  • Dusky Pink & Ivory for the skin

I embellished ith with ribbon, card candi, glossy accents, stickles and die cuts from the Cricut Cartridge Ashlyn’s Alphabet.

I am entering this card into the Saturated Canary Challenge Black, White & one other



This luck girl also got half a dozen cupcakes to go with her card.  This is my second attempt at using Marshmallow Fondant and my tappits letter/number stencils.  Making marshmallow fondant seems to be easier than making any other type of material for decorating cakes such as flower paste or gum paste.  I find it works well for cutting.  I also used a butterfly cutter and embossing sheets that came free with a Cake Decorating Magazine.


Thanks for stopping by.  I’d love it if you could leave a comment.


Hugs & Kisses






I was asked to make a birthday card for my neighbour Aoibhe (Irish for Ava) who turned 5 during the week.  This image by Mo Manning reminded me of her!  She is coloured with Promarkers.



I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Digital Pencil Challenge & Guest Design Team Call – Hugs & Kisses

Papertake Weekly Challenge – All Things Girly

Divas By Design Challenge – Anything Goes


I also want to share a card I made today at Jackie Mooney’s Workshop.  It’s a never-ending folding card.  Good fun to make and play with!


Thanks for looking.  I’d really appreciate it if you could leave a comment, I love reading them ❤



Five Shades of Cool Grey

Two projects today.  First is a bookmark inspired by the oh-so-popular trilogy ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’.  Unfortunately (or not!), I don’t have 50 shades of grey promarkers, only 5, so they had to do!  The image is from Sassy Studio Designs.IMG_9167

I am entering this card into the Sassy Studio Designs challenge on Paper Craft Planet – Summer Reading.

Secondly, I have a card, with a similar colour scheme.  My father-in-law is getting married in a few weeks, so I have to make a few cards for different people to give, and this is the first.  The image of the bride & groom dancing is from Mo Manning.

I am entering this card into the following challenge:

Mo’s Digital Challenge 143 – Dancing & Singing.

(Mo is also have a Guest Design Team Call (exciting!), details are in the link above.

Thanks for looking, please leave a comment.


Circles & Bling

While looking for some free digi stamps, I came across a fab image and challenge at Saturated Canary.  I coloured the image to match the backing paper using my Promarkers.  The pink combination is pale pink, baby pink and antique pink.  The green is meadow green, apple and grass.  I added a 3D effect to the background by raising some cut-out circles with foam pads and glossy accents.  The theme for the Saturated Canary Challenge is ‘Bling it On‘, so I made sure to add plenty of gems and stickles glitter.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Saturated Canary – Challenge 21 – Bling it On

I Love Promarkers – Challenge 125 – Circles

Another ‘Anything Goes’ challenge card

The image on this card is from Mo Manning.  The cute little boy driving his car reminds me of my two boys, who both love cars!  The layout is from a sketch from Passion for Promarkers.  I also used it for another card in my previous blog post.  You can’t really see it in the photo, but I used glossy accents  on the windscreen, bumper and headlights.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Mo’s Challenge #142 – Anything Goes

Passion for Promarkers #156 – Sketch

Thanks for looking.


Anything Goes Challenges

I haven’t updated my blog in while; I’ve made plenty of cards but just haven’t had time to post them here or enter challenges.

First is an Easel card for a 30th Wedding Anniversary with an image from Sassy Cheryl, embellished with Glossy Accents.  I am entering this into Challenge #122 – Anything Goes.

Next is a new baby card.  This was made to fit a sketch for Challenge #156 over at Passion for Promarkers.

I hope you like them.  Please leave a comment.
