Halloween TP Mini

Hi guys - i wanted to share a TP Mini that i made for a swap - my first ever swap - I posted theis mini to the USA on the 14th September 2012 i sent it surface mail as it was quite expensive to send it airmail and do you know what as of today it still has not arrived - i packed it all very nicely in a little box and i surrounded it with little crafty goodies - there was 2or3 bottles of  liquid pearls ribbons lace and of course my mini and the poor lady i sent it to has not got it - i feel bad about it.

I hope you like it - its a shame Mamie didnt receive it.

October Card Social

well guys how you all doing - i have been very slack in the blogging department but i have genuine excuses - i have been poorly and my Son & DIL had another baby - a totally beautiful little boy called Isaac James - Isaac was born on Halloween -  welcome Isaac

This is the whole family mamma & dadda Ethan & Isaac - are they not just beautiful.

OCTOBER Card Social was a joy as always - i do love my card socials it is so lovely to see all my fave peeps in one place where we can chat & drink copious amounts of tea - we had a lovely new lady join us her name is Wendy she has never made a card - Wendy was very brave and purchased a kit and this is what she did.
Wendy was highly delighted with her first attempt at cardmaking and we all thought she was a very nice person and we hope she comes back to visit us again.

More tumbling flowers

Its me again - I keep seeing a card on pinterest that uses a Marianne die that is of a lantern and the front is open and the flowers are growing out of the lantern - there is also a little bottle inside - so i have had a go and this is my version - i suppose you could say i have card lifted like the do in scrapbooking - but i just wanted to share it with you all.

The flowers are actually from iamroses and WOC - i used a leaf punch that i have had forever and fanciful flourish die by cheery lynn - the washi tape came free with a mag.
thanks for looking

Saturated Canary

Ok guys this is my third post today - sorry to bombard you all it kind of goes like this sometimes - i am busy creating and then realise that maybe i should blog as well - lol

I have been practicing  with my prismacolor pencils which i purchased at least 3 years ago - i have never really got the hang of them until i discovered youtube - now that is an amazing place. I wouldnt say i am all that with them just yet but i am trying (him indoors says i am very trying-lol). well this is one of my cards - i have used a saturated Canary digi image - i absolutely adore these images - you may notice that with more cards that i have in the pipeline - lol - i have made the box to match - the cards are actually 8x8inch cards.

The flowers are all from iam roses except the 2 on the box and they are prima got flowers - the papers are from my ancient stash again and the ribbon is from mei flower - i used a cheery lynn die Fanciful Flourish which i purchased from teddy bo - they have fab digis on there as well.
this is the next card - which is also one of my faves at the moment flowers from iam roses again and some of them were white so i colored them with the spectrum noir pens again - i love doing this with my flowers as i really get what i want that way-the lace is from my aunt - the sentiment came from graphicatstamps - the sentiments on the site are absolutely great - i love all the fifty shades sentiments - just brill.
Once again guys - thanks for looking - kym xx

Present Card & Box

Well i liked the tumbling flowers very much so i decided to make one that is a wrapped present with flowers tumbling out of the open lid - i think i am going to do a xmas card like this as well.

This is the box i made for the card

 This is the inside of the card.
 and this is the actual card - the papers are from a HOTP book called metallic silver - the flowers are from i am roses - they were actually white flowers and i colored them with spectrum noir markers - the ribbon is from mei flower and the swirly bling i bought in Michaels when on my holls in siesta key fl
I think maybe this one is my favourite it looks quite delish in the flesh so to speak.
thanks again for looking guys - kym xx

Herman the German Friendship Cake

Hi Peeps - this is totally unrelated to cardmaking but i wanted to share my Herman cake with you as it is my first go at this malarky.  My friend Sue asked if i would like to have a go at making this cake.This is how it arrived to me.

Now the instructions were very explicit - i had to look after this little pile of gloop for 10 days - i must not put the lid on or i would kill it - seriously thats what the instuctions said - i must put it on the worktop and cover loosely with a tea towel - then on day 4 i had to feed the gloop - this in itself caused a few technical hitches as i didnt realise the gloop was gonna grow - i had to get him indoors to take me shopping to find a big mixing bowl - go figure huh - then on day 9 i had to feed the gloop again by this point i was considering charging the gloop rent - i forgot to say i had to stir vigourously every day as well - ok  day 10 and i get to make the cake this is what it looked like once i had added all the stuff and let me tell ya there was a bucket load of stuff to add - if you only knew me - no way shape or form am i cook

then i had to put it into a baking tray and sprinkle with brown sugar and then pour melted butter on top
Now into the oven for a supposed 45 mins - now i am that bad at cooking that meant i was tied to the kitchen for 45 mins - otherwise i wander off and forget that i am cooking - This is the end result
And it actually tasted yummy - it has apples - bananas - sultanas in this one

And this one has cherrys-bananas-chocolate in it - which my son Kier says is the business and i swear he has eaten a quarter of it already - well what do you think Sue how many marks for this then - huh homework is done.

more leftovers

Hi Peeps - here is another little card that i have put together with some leftover bits of paper and bits and bobs.

i hope you like - kym xx

Mo's Cherry Girl

Hi again guys - have finished this card so being as i was in a blogging mood i decided to share with you all - this is the Cherry Girl from - i love mo's images they are just so sweet - i wanted to use the really pretty bias binding that i got from here - its just so pretty - methinks i will have to buy some more.

The papers came free with a magazine but you can buy the digital papers from here - the lace was from my stash and the sentiment is a Whimsy stamp - there is a pull out tag which is big enough to attach a photo if you choose.

Sorry about the messy table - i always forget when i am taking the photos - the flowers are from - the image is colored with promarkers - would love it if you left a comment thanks Kym xx


Hi guys - hope all is well with you everyone - i thought i would share this card i made - i used the leftover bits from the card with the flutterbys on in the last post - i had made a couple of bits to go on that card and i never used them - i also had a few bits of paper and card offcuts from that card as well - so just for my friend Sue i used them up and i made this card - let me know what you think - kym xx laters

Todays Card

Hi Guys - hope everybody is well - i have a couple of cards for you today - the first one is a silly card i made for my sister wendy who was going on her holls to Cyprus - really it was just an excuse to make a card - lol
The papers came from a free cd i got with a magazine - the ticket die and stamps came from whimsy stamps and the lace came from my stash - (actually the lace came from my Auntie Pam who was having a major clearout - bonus for me methinks)-the image is a magnolia that i purchased eons ago on ebay with the skin already colored so that bit of coloring is not mine but the rest is.

this is what the card looked like on the inside - i made it in docrafts digital designer.

This card  has another of those magnolia images that i got eons ago with the skin already colored - i used my spectrum noirs on this image - what do you think of the large turquoise and white flowers - i actually made those with flowers-they were white when i started lol - i used my pens to color them - i saw a tutorial on youtube - amazing what you can learn on there. The papers are from a GCD pad called The Lydia Collection which i got from great place for some bargains, the swirly pearls came from a Michaels store which i purchased when on holiday in Florida - the other flowers are also from iamroses the butterflys are from a couple of punches which i think are made by woodware - i hope you like - enjoy looking all comments are greatly appreciated - kym xx
