I really like the asymmetric layer on the card and the cute anchor background stamped on pink card. So for my card I decided to use a nautical theme  with some October Afternoon  Seaside papers and also the layout with the asymmetric layer. I added a cute anchor and stamped a custom greeting with a Paper Smooches alphabet set to finish.

Here is my card……..


Supplies: Card – PTI White, MFT Red Hot. Papers – October Afternoon Seaside 8×8 paper pad. Dies Spellbinders Nestabilities Large Circles, PTI Double ended banner, Paper Smooches Anchor. Stamps – Paper Smooches Alphdot. Ink – Jenny Bowlin Spice Tin

Back soon! Enjoy your day!

Retrosketches # 79!

Hello There!

Here is a card I made for the latest challenge over at Retrosketches!

Here is the inspiration sketch…….


A great sketch and I love the feathers but unfortunately I have no feather  products in my stash at the moment. However I am soon planning to put this right as they have some great new feather dies at and exclusive to Simon Says Stamp and they are in my shopping basket as we speak!!!

Anyway enough of that! For this card I decided to use a new 6×6 pad by Glitz – Dapper Dan. this has a lot of great male themed papers which is a good thing as I always gravitate towards the cute/flowery and do not have much male themed product to work with. Also I love a good moustache!…….and there is a great moustache themed paper in this pad. So I combined these papers with a great moustache die cut….(I really like the word moustache too!!) from the silhouette store.

Anyhow here is my card……..


Supplies: Card – PTI Kraft. Papers – Glitz dapper Dan 6×6 pad. Dies – Spellbinders Nestabilities Large Circles. Stamps – Paper Smooches Word Up. Buttons PTI Kraft. Moustache die cut from the Silhouette Store.

Have a great day!

Freshly made Sketches # 101!


Here is a card I have made for Freshly Made Sketches #101. This sketch by Linda C. is very versatile and is a great starting point for many cards!

Here is the sketch……..

FMS Final 101-001

Now I have a problem! To be precise it is a twine collecting problem (come to think of it I have a paper and stamp collecting problem too!) I have so many spools, skeins and balls of it and yet I don’t seem to use it very often and when I do I hardly cut into the twine mountain……but I do love looking at it and stroking it!!

So I decided to create a twine rainbow on the main panel of this card. I then added a sentiment and a buton to accent.

Anyway here is my card…….
