Find joy everyday card

Good afternoon all, phew another hot day again here.
I have another 'LIM' card to share with you today.
The theme this week is a song title and....
Singin' in the rain!

"You can take any aspect from the title as the starting
 point for your creation.  Rain, weather, music,
 dancing... let your imagination take flight.

Just remember to keep it Clean and Simple,
 with plenty of white space!"
I went with the 'singin' bit this time and used a
 DSB image and coloured using Promarkers.
Computerized sentiment, a bit of twine and a touch
 of Glamour dust  and job done. 
ps. A big welcome to my latest followers too, welcome
 aboard and thanks for choosing me to follow :)
Also entering this into the 'Addicted to Stamp's challenge
which is 'Clean and Simple' 'CAS'

Enjoy the moment.....

Hi friends/bloggers I hope this finds you all well.
It's another LIM card again and this time it's.... 
"For our theme this week, we're going with Sarah's 
suggestion of using a song title to trigger your

This week's song is
Singin' in the rain!

"You can take any aspect from the title as the
 starting  point for your creation.  Rain, weather,
 music, dancing... let your imagination take flight.
Just remember to keep it Clean and Simple,
 with plenty of white space!"

I went with rain :) My first effort was almost
finished when I decided on a watercolour
background. BIG mistake!!!!

Let's just say it was a total disaster and leave it
 at that lol !

So onto card 2. I used a digital background
this time using Grepic dip dye digi paper and 
a Dearie Dolls digi coloured with Promarkers.

The sentiment is computer generated...........
and relax!

Hope there is enough white space ??, now onto
 card 2. I will be back very soon to show you
 my next effort !

Have a lovely weekend everyone, whatever you
 have planned. It was 30c here yesterday and I
was melting,........ 27c today still!

Regency Anniversary card

Hi everyone, such a hot day here today, I saw 29c
in the car earlier and it's still 25c now.
We had a lovely day at the beach, and even had
a small ice-cream and fresh strawberries too.
Shhh we are on a 'fast' day today (5.2 diet) so
don't tell !
Anyway I am just popping in to show you this
 Anniversary card I made.
I gave it to my nephew to give to his wife for their
 Anniversary. I thought it matched the Aquamarine
jewellery I made for her too.
Enough waffle, here it is, hope you like it  :)
It's a digital design by the Clipart fairy btw.
I printed a matching insert and also made some matching flowers
as you can see here.

Fingerprint cards

Good morning friends, another dull day here today.
What happened to the Summer ?
As it's Saturday yet again I have more 'LIM'
cards to share. It's one layer card week
this time and.....
  'Adapt a Fingerprint' 
Hmmm could be a tricky one this time ! Luckily
I remembered a card I made ages ago, so decided
to try and recreate that one.
I made some fingerprints and added a few whiskers
and also a piece of string for tails ( hope that's allowed).
A bit of shadow and a CB stamp for the sentiment and
 job done!
They were supposed to be mice but ...ahem...I think 
they are more like cats lol. So you choose :)

I made another card too, this time making a heart
with my fingerprints. I had to do it several times as
it was a bit too light in colour. It is my fingerprints 
though I promise !
I used a quick swish of Distress ink for a background
this time and added another CB sentiment.....and relax :)
A very big welcome to all my latest followers too, welcome
aboard and thank you for following me:) 
ps. Enjoy your weekend whatever you have planned. I am still
sorting menu ideas for parties we are hosting soon. It seems
we will have two now, one for about 14 people and one for
8 or 10 and the babies of course too.
Think I am going to be very busy lol, we have a wedding 'do'
the day before one also, so I will have to freeze things.
Still knee deep in jewellery making too atm., 'stuff' everywhere!
Of course now I have my jewellery tools out I have decided to
order  lots  more 'bits' too arghhh !

Bird on a branch card

Good afternoon everyone, I hope you are all enjoying
a lovely Sunday.
I am late with my 'Less is More' card as we met up with
my DIL's family yesterday.
Anyway here it is now, the theme this week is a
colour one and......

Earth Tones
Hmm not colours I mainly use but nice to have a change
I think.
I used a Memory Box branch die, Kanban Crafts bird
stamp, mask and TH  Distress inks for the sun. A Clearly
Besotted sentiment and a few sequins.
Hope you all approve, I have to get busy making some
 jewellery for an order now. Enjoy your Sunday whatever
you have planned :)

New home card

Good afternoon everyone, Just a quick flying visit today.
I made this card the other day  for my son and  DIL.
They will be moving house soon and I wanted to 
have a card ready. 
I tried some stitching on my card for a change.
 Just don't look too closely though lol.
 I made the flowers from a discarded piece of card. I
 had used distress inks on it but then the stamping
 part went wrong.
The D/P is an off cut from yestersday's card also.
The sentiment was a freebie from the lovely Chrissie
Thanks Chrissie, finding these so useful just now !
ps. a big welcome to my latest followers too. Thank you
for choosing me to follow :)
