Scarecrow and Friends

CD Scarecrow and Friend (1)

Just a quick post from me to share the second to last of Augusts makes. Here is a tag shaped card made using Scarecrow and Friend from Crissy’s Digis:

CD Scarecrow and Friend (2)

I made a mistake I don’t often do any more when making cards and I coloured my image before picking any patterned papers. I really struggled finding anything to match so I went for plain coloured card and added some pattern of my own with embossing and stencilling.

The flowers are punched from a cork sheet and coloured with a ProMarker.

Morning All. I don’t seem to have quite got back into the swing of blogging since coming back from holiday, not helped by another tummy bug.

Anyhoo, it’s time for a new challenge over at A Gem of a Challenge and this time our theme picked by the lovely Claire is:

It’s Summer Time

Here is my card using Poppy

I’ve used the no lines colouring technique but printed the digi in beige rather than grey (thanks to Alyce at Kit and Clowder for that tip) and it was much easier to colour. Old Mr Mojo has taken a bit of a walk at the moment (if you see him please send him back…lol) so I have kept the rest of the card simple with an embossed background, sentiment and a ribbon.


  • Image: Poppy by Pink Gem Designs 
  • Colouring Medium: ProMarkers and Copics
  • Card: Copic X-Press It Card, Coral and Purple Core’dinations Card and textured white card
  • Stamps: Sentiment from Pink Gem Designs
  • Dies & Punches: Floral Oval Nestabilities and X-Cut Square Punch
  • Embellishments: Glitter Glue

Favourite Things

Morning all. I don’t know about you (or if it’s just my funny old brain) but having wrote that title I can’t stop singing the song from The Sound of Music!

Anyhoo, it’s my turn over on the Sarah Hurley 365 blog today and I’m showing the clipboard I decorated for this months challenge, it uses one of my favourite colour combos…yellow and grey.

Here is a sneak peak

Please hop over to the Sarah Hurley 365 blog to see the card in full and to see what the rest of the team made for the challenge click here.
