Busy bee

Been a busy bee, trying to set myself up making cards for a living! I love the idea that people might buy my cards and give them to a loved one.
I really enjoy making cards, I get to explore my creative side and hopefully make other people happy.
I'm starting on ebay and a special range for space monkeys and then who knows.....

Best laid plans

Well came over with a migraine at the weekend so didn't manage to get any cards done! I did get a couple done today ready for space monkeys to sell. Did a couple of designs in true space monkey style, cool and edgy.

Copic colour challenge and spoon full of sugar

Decided to put touch feely with my copic challenge this week, I wanted to do a little more Greeting Farm customising with the stamps and my new cuttlebug haunted house came so..... These were the colours given

Used Flesh for hair with sand highlights with a sand broomstick stem. I'd heard about using copics to colour ribbon so decided to try it on some twig style fibres for the broom stick with the walnut. distressed with Tim Holtz distress tool its all strokeable lol.

Edward Cullen

My friend is almost as twilight mad as I am, so for her birthday I made her, Edward all for herself.
I used dress me Ian stamp from The Greeting Farm. I used paper piecing to do his little outfit, and made him vampire sparkly with sakura gel pens, coloured using copics

Cute Card Thursday and the Secret Crafter Challenge

I wanted to try something a little different with this one so went for a frame card, first time I have made a 3d card! actually went right on my first time attempt, which is pretty good for me as I seem to have a problem doing things straight, must be my wonky eyes.
This weeks challenge at cute card Thursday was shiny shiny so I though I'd combine it with the Saturday Challenge which is Flowers, oh lovely shiny leaves.... well punching foil was an experience!! Here's the finished result.

copic colour challange

We'll it's my first go at a challenge, this was an interesting one as the colours were very random!

I'm trying to decide which challenges to have a go at, most are weekly so got to find the time too now I'm back at work!

Tomorrow am off to the Kent craft show, as long as weather holds out should be a good day, be nice to have a mooch around in the sun with interesting things to see and good company...

Well heres my offering for the challenge
