Rocco Kite Aim High

Well what a change in the weather hey typical BHM weather here today :(
So on to my final card that I made for last weeks Launch over at #Polkadoodles
This time I made another male theme card they have been so easy tomake with this collection  and I totally enjoyed making all of them
I decided to make another CAS card A5 in size, I‘m loving this style of CAS card at the moment and I think ou may see a few more in the not too distant future so be warned lol

Again very easy to make just a folded A4 then a small thin strip of backing paper and the image called Rocco kite which I coloured with polychromo pencils.

Then I added some card candy (which are brads from the embellishment folder of the collection) I covered them in embossing powder a couple of times to make them a little sturdier and there you have it easy peazy
Hope you like it and I will see you very soon with some more makes I have been keeping under my hat (and yes it is killing me lol)

Challenges TIC TAC TOE (hand coloured image, digi stamp, embossing)

Memory lane

Hello crafty friends how are you today hasn’t the weather been glorious the last few days, it’s a little cloudy here today but still warm so I do hope it lasts I love the sun and warm weather.
I have 2 cards left that haven’t posted on here that I made for the launch of Winnies Special Moments .
My first card is an 8x8” and Nikky kind of inspired this card as she was talking about how this collection reminded her of herself and boy who she used to hang out with when they were kid, well it brought back very similar memories for me. The lad I used hang with was my next door but one neighbour he was just a bit younger than me but we used go off playing most nights after school when we were little playing batman and robin(he always made me play robin lol) or he’d bring his action man figures round and I get my Sindy dolls out(yes I was Sindy girl not a Barbie) or we’d go off on our bikes. This friend was called Wayne I know he FB friend with at least one of my cousins but I haven’t seen or spoken to him in years now. I always remember he had curly hair and when he had it all cut off once I didn’t speak to him for weeks (how could cut those curls lol). But enough with the trips down memory lane lets get on with the card.

I have used paper from this collection but I also used papers from the winnie in Winterland collection as well (the red & green) I wanted the image to be the main focal point on the card.
The image is called Tire swing and I coloured with my polychrome pencils and I added one of quotes that came with the download to alongside it 

I used some of the arrow embellishments which I embossed with red and blue embossing powder then added these to the card after the image was added

So there you have my first card for today and I will see you later with my final make for this collection

Inspirational post for Polkadoodles

Hi  everyone I’m a little late with my card for this fortnights challenge things have been mad here with one thing and another but not to worry won’t go into all that!
So this week is inspiration week for our challenge over at Polkadoodles of course for you lovelies the challenge is always Anything goes but for us DT girls it was use 2 or more papers.

I have made a really simple digital designed card using 4 papers from the Winnie Special Moments collection and then used one of the coloured images for a topper and of the quotes for a sentiment put them together printed off and bingo a really quick and easy card for any late birthday (hope I haven’t forgotten anyone)
