The Sketchy Challenges #46

Another lovely sketch by Cordine, you can see the lovely DT's creations here.

The other day I needed a male birthday card and discovered I have heaps of pretty girly cards but not much at all for boys! So I decided to use this great sketch to create a boys card, I am sure it takes me longer to create boys cards but I am determined to make a lot more.

This darling pirate is a WOJ stamp and is part of the Spring Secret stamp kit.

The papers are Authentique 'Journey', some washi tape, a bit of twine, a charm and  a button to finish it off.

Thank you for stopping by and for your lovely comments!

WOJ - King of the Ocean

Today is the start of WOJ's preview week for April's release and I have an awesome image to share with you.

This is 'King of the Ocean', perfect for boys!

I have used Basic Grey's 'Serenade' papers, love the colours and the patterned paper of a map was perfect for my stamped image. The sentiment is WOJ 'Festive Occasions' and I have used WOJ Die-Lights 'Arrows', this die comes with seven different arrows. I added some muslin behind my image for texture, I finished my card off with a Prima button and some twine, a clock and paperclip.

Thank you for joining us on our first day of previews, before I go I thought I would let you know you can now pre-order the Summer Stamp Kit. But be quick, you can only pre-order till the 22nd of April.

Hope you are all having an awesome weekend, its school holidays here so the kids are enjoying some time off and so am I, no mad morning rush!

Lime Tart - Cards

I can't believe it is April already and Easter has come and gone! However, in our house we still have what seems like an endless supply of chocolate - oh dear :(

With my March Half Tart kit I created a set of cards and a gift box to pop them in.

An inside view!

The top of the box is pretty simple with some handmade roses to finish it off.

I kept the cards simple as well, this way is quick and easy to create a heap of cards and by keeping the design basic, they are easy post and can be used for a variety of occasions.

I am off to finish cleaning my desk so I can finish my cards, I have been playing with WOJ's April release and they are gorgeous, can't wait to show you!

Thanks for stopping by and for your lovely comments.
