So a spring clean took place at home.
Anyway back to crafting. Above we have a card I made for my friend who's birthday was last week. Again I've used some of my gorgeous goddies from Cass & Vicki, mmwah ladies.
Papers BoBunny, image Miss Anya coloured with......you guessed it yummy Copics, stamped sentiment.
I was going to attempt a bit of altered art too, however the box which I was going to alter is now in the possession of my eldest as a storage box for his 'Match Attax' Swaps. Because they fit perfectly!!!
Thanks for popping by.
Hugs, Kerry xxx

No cards 'finished' at the moment to show you & with my intentions this morning to get them done, I got a little side tracked....lol.
You might have noticed that my blog is looking a tad different.....I got this 'Blog-In-A-Box' from Sweet Shoppe Designs a while back but never had the chance to do anything with it, until now! It hasn't quite gone to plan but it is a change. As yet I haven't decided if I like it or not, so next time you pop by it may well be different again.
Oh well, think I'll carry on with cards....or maybe I should do some of that housework stuff....mmmmmm
See you soon.
Hugs, Kerry xxx

It's the first time I'd made a 'with sympathy' card & so wasn't to sure how to go about it, ie, colours, style etc..... I just wanted something to express that our thoughts were with her.
Thursday, 23 April 2009
Anyway, as its one of my friends birthdays is next week I think I'll give her this card & in the mean time doing this one has given me quite a few ideas for other cards I'm planning to make, I'll show you when they're done.

Now back to the daily routine of school run & ferrying the boys around to their various weekly activities, having had a fab time camping last week. Some how we managed to have mostly dry weather, one small downpour when we were on the beach one day but the kiddiwinks would have been happy to carry on with their castle building & cricket game! Roll on the next half term when we're off again, can't wait!!!
Here we have a card I made for one of my friends just before I went away. She sent me a message asking if I still made cards as she was trying to find something for her In-laws 45th Anniversary, with not much luck! So, showing her a Ruby card I'd made a while back I asked if something similar would suit......answer Yes!
Papers are all from a freebie download kit from Shabby Princess, ribbon, lace & buttons from my stash, verse from web. On the previous card I made I used a Wedding day piccie but my friend was unable to get one of her in-laws, so I found this copyright free image on the net & thought it would fit nicely.

Here we have another of those doodles I've been popping on here this week. I have to say it is one of my fav's, simple & yet apt. Can't believe it was a year ago since I drew this one. The card that I used it on was for the lil cute fella whose cards I popped on a couple of weeks ago, where does the time go?!
Anyway, as with all of the other freebies if you would please respect my copyright & if you feel you can use any of them pop a message on for me, I'd love to have a nosey & see what fabby things you've done with them.
Well, back to the packing. Tent, sleeping bags & cooking equip are all sorted, so if I don't post before I'll 'see' you when I get back!

"Rain, rain go away come again another day!!!"
Says it all really, sun doesn't seem to want to come out for us today however I've got my fingers, toes & anything else possible crossed that the weather will get better as we are off camping on Monday! I can hope.....lol.
Here we have a card I made last week for my Nephew Marshall who will be 6 on Saturday. At the moment he & the rest of Jools gang are having a fantastic time at Disney Florida. The boys didn't know they were going & when they were awoke early last Friday morning & were told, bearing in mind they were half asleep Marshall's reaction was " I don't want to go there, I want to go camping!"........lol, he soon changed his mind though!!!

Here's another of my dust laden doodles...lol. When I drew this one I thought he was quite cute but never got around to using him for some reason. So, again if anyone could make use of him feel free. All I ask is that you respect my copyright, thank you.
Today, I'm having a crafty day with my lil friend Holly who also chose 'bookworm' above to be the next freebie. I'll pop the results on of our crafting session at a later date.
Enjoy your day!
Tuesday, 7 April 2009
Hello & happy Tuesday to you all!
Having a look through some of my doodles last night I realised there were a few I'd drawn some time back for myself, used them once & then forgotten about them. So, rather than have them using space up on my computer & doing nothing much else I thought it might be nice to pop a few more freebies on my blog. Hopefully others may be able to make use of them.
They are in the same style as the other freebies, cool dude & the couple.
Anyway, here's the first one & I'll pop the others on throughout the week.
As before, if you could just respect my copyright.

Well, what a busy week the last one has been but every bit enjoyable...lol. I've been crafting lots, the results of which I'll post at a later time but best of all Wednesday was my birthday......yay!!!!
Not sure how many more years will deserve a yay but for now I'll carry on saying it. At the grand old age of 34, (old being the operative word in the view of my youngest.....bless him!!?) I had a lovely day, & day after 'lunching' & 'dining' with friends. You can't beat it!
To my total surprise I had the pleasure of receiving a couple of parcels from my fabby crafty buddies Cass & Vicki. Huge thanks to them both for what can only be described as gorgeous cards & the most yummy goodies which they sent me. However how they expect me to cut up the papers I don't know........they're definitely the kind to look at, too pretty to even consider putting a craft knife to them.....lol!
Thank you Vicki!!!!!!

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.

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

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 harsh....lol.
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

Hello there, thought I'd sit down for five minutes & pop a post on. Where has the time gone?!
I hope you all enjoyed the festive season & that Santa rewarded you for all of your good behaviour throughout last year.....lol
Thought I'd share some of my decorations with you, a lil late in showing but oh well. Now they're taken down though, I can't believe how bare the rooms look! Is it just me, or do others think the same about their rooms?!
Our tree which was in the dining room, also known as my craft room......lol.
Our living room fireplace decorated. (As I type now I'm sitting in front of this with the fire lit.........nice & toasty!)
Myself, I had a fab Christmas albeit hectic at times. The new year being no exception, again spending it with the 'family', ie. Jools & her gang. Lets just say we sang the new year in.........karaoke style. Hehe
The second of my 'happy's' is to Jools, who celebrates her birthday today. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!!!
Below is the card I made for her,
Floral pp is K&Co, I have to say I love it! I did toy with the idea of using some sort of image but thought the pattern said enough. The center flower, I've cut & layered for dimension along with a touch of tearing & distressing. Sentiment stamped & ribbons, lace & eyelets from stash.
So, if you've managed to get to the end of this post, &, you're still awake Well Done!
My intentions for the new year are to get back into my crafting & blogging too, I feel I've neglected both of late & I'm looking forward to catching up on what everyone else has been upto. See you soon!!!!!!
Saturday, 6 December 2008
Anyway, here are two cards I've made for a friend, for her Sons. (Hope you like them Lisa?!...) The first one I've used pp from Sweet Shoppe Designs & Core'dinations cs, tree image one of my freebies & Harry image, (Started drawing this a while back but for some reason never finished him, but thought he would be ideal.) all coloured with watercolour pencils & clear embossed over.
Lil 'chocolate drops' from Craftwork cards & sentiment computer generated.
Each of the images have been mounted with silicone glue, to give dimension to the card.
As you might be able to see, the backgrounds of my piccies are........my Christmas tree! You could say my arm was twisted into putting it up, or should I say the fact that hubby went & got it & all of the decorations out of the garage threatening to do it himself! Now for anyone who knows me, there is no way I'd let anyone else do it!!!..........lol
Saturday, 29 November 2008
Thought I'd share a few things I've made, for Christmas day. One of mine & Jool's purchases at the craft show the other week was some lil gift/treat bags which I thought would be great with some choccies & sweets in.
These particular ones I have made to sit on the dining table when it has been transformed for Christmas dinner, acting as place cards & to give each of the 'diners' (oh...that sounds posh...lol) a few chocs & a small table present inside. They will be lil gifts from my boys.
For the images & scalloped edge I've used a template which was a magazine freebie a couple of months ago, then coloured them with my trusty watercolour pencils, finishing with just a touch of inking.....lol.
CS is all Bazzill & then ribbon added for fastening the bags. However when the boys fill the bags up I'll then close them with eyelets.
I'm quite pleased with how they've turned out, but as yet haven't decided if I'm going to keep the images at the top or reposition them in the middle of the bag itself.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend, Kerry xxx
