A Couple of Commissioned cards

I really need to pull my finger out as I have so many card orders to do its unreal. These to I have made today are what my sister in law has ordered .
I have been struggling getting into my cards these last couple of days as I have woke 3 mornings on trot with a headache. Today was the first day I woke with a clear head, but this last hour I have started feeling heading. prob some kind of  virus.
 Anyway my cards

Image Born to shop freebie stamps from magazine coloured with copics
Papers All my memories 12 x 12 papers
Martha Stewart border punch
Sentiment had from day dot

My second card for today

This is the first time I have used this stamp.


Papermania poppy stamp colour with water colour pencils
Cuttle bug Swiss dots folder
Ribbon from stash
Sentiment had from day dot.

On top of having lots of card orders, I also have a card party coming up in October. To which I thought I would get the knitting needles out and knit some scarves. As I thought its that time of year coming so why not knit a few, who knows they might sell.
I am using Wendy wisp featherlight chunky wool. If that means anythng to you.
I haven't done any knitting for years. but doing ok. using chunky needles too. did have to sit for a while and try and remember how to cast off at the end. but got there eventually.


Hope Everyone is having a good day even if the weather is dull, wet and cold.
Think I am now going to have a cup of tea, and a cpl of painkillers.

Thanks for dropping by.

September sketch for Kathy's Waffles

Where has August gone. It dont seem like five mins ago that Kathy asked me to be a designer for her. And I made Augusts card.
Totally loving the sketch she has come up with for this month.
Would be great if you popped over to Kathy's waffles and maybe took part. we love to see what people come up with.

My take on the sketch

Now All these papers for this card, (except the nesties circles )
are from Computer scrapbook-Papers are from the heart soul 1 & 2 kits.
They have been offering alot of there papers here free, but not sure if it is still on going. so you will have to go and have alook. there is loads.


Jak has some amazing candy up for grabs over at her blog . you have until Saturday to enter it, and as she says you got to be in it to win it!
Here is a just one picture of what you can win, but you will have to hop over to her blog see wot else she has on offer.

Thanks for stopping by, hope you all have a fab day
