Purple patch

Good afternoon everyone,
My husband left for work very early this morning and as usual woke up the entire street. So I was up early finishing off the birthday cards I need for back at work this week. They are quick cards using CD images rather than coloured images as not everyone saves handmade cards and I am gutted when I have spent ages colouring an image and it ends up in the bin. The From me to you disc from Docrafts is just stunning.
I have chosen purple, which is a colour I don't normally use, but I so love the bearly mine August freebie paper so I had to use it.
Papers Bearly Mine Designs and Stamping all day
Ribbon and gems from stash.
I am entering this card in the following challenge

Have a good day

Wedding # 2

Hi again! I haven't posted in ages and now two in one day! This is my second wedding card based on the sketch and stash sketch 69.



I have combined the sketch with the teddy bo challenge which is black and white and one other colour.
I chose red as my other colour because the bridesmaids are wearing red at the wedding I am going to. I chose the coloured image and set the printer to black and white, I added red to parts of the image and decoupaged the back of the car and teddy bo's hat.
The image is coloured with Promarkers.
The flowers and seam binding are from wild orchids, I can't remember where the hat pin is from.
The pearls on string I have had in my craft box since I began crafting 18 months ago - thought it was about time I gave them an airing.
The paper is Raspberry Road for the record paper set.
I am entering this card into the following challenges

Weddings, weddings, weddings!



Hello all, I can't believe that it's been two weeks since my last post. I have been so busy and to be honest had lost my mojo a bit. In that time my best friend Lynn and I went for a promarker colouring class with Carlyann from Charisma cards. We had a fantastic time! Carly is such a super crafter and explained things so clearly that we came away feeling that with practice we will be able to colour a half decent image. Thank you so much Carly and we will be back in the new year for the next steps. In the meantime I hope you approve of the way I have coloured the image on this card.

Having not had any weddings for ages I have two in the space of a month which means cards to make!
This is my first card which uses a Mo Manning digi stamp which I first saw on a beautiful card by Debbie on her blog. Her card was so beautiful, it inspired me to have a go - thanks Debbie for the inspiration you are a very talented lady.
I used the sketch for the CLP challenge




The image is coloured with Promarkers, Flexmarkers and Spectrum Noir.
The doily and swirls was made using  Marianne Creatables dies which I love.
The gorgeous papers are digi papers from Bearly Mine Designs again rapidly becoming a favourite of mine.
The flowers are from wild orchid crafts, although the baby's breath could well be from Hobby Craft as is the lace.
I would like to enter this card in the following challenges
