Happy Birthday

hello everyone
As promised I have a new card to show you today. I do hope you like it.
The request was for a card with an owl and nature theme. 
I found this fab image and thought it suited the theme perfectly.
I matted the image onto green and then black card stock.

I added some glossy accent to the owl's eye for shine and dimension.
the wording was done direct onto the card base using a font called passions conflict.

I think I matched the card stock very well with the image. I do know the lady loved it.

thanks for dropping by today. I am off now to leave comments and pop onto your blogs to see what fab creations you have all been making.

love to you all

To you from me

hello friends and fellow crafters.
wow!! what can I say - yet again you never cease to amaze me with your kinds words of encouragement and wisdom regarding my card making. You have absolutely no idea what your replies have meant to me. I feel humbled and teary by them all.
I promise to try and post a new card at least every other day if not more.
thanks again to you all.

anyway - wow another card. crikey 2 cards in 2 days - am getting a bit away with myself! LOL
Here I have used a digi image called Lenny from Stamp Fairy - am pretty sure that's what he's called. 
Again he is coloured with copics. I matted him onto pink card stock.

I found this funky backing paper and loved the zingy colours (is zingy a word?) - anyway I matted the paper onto more pink card stock and then onto a 6" square white card.

The wording I printed from the PC using Americana and English Presto. I found some pink organza ribbon and some matching pink gems. 

Here's a close of my colouring in - don't laugh!! I covered the flower and his nose in glossy accents - doesn't show up very well here. And added a clear diamante to the flower centre.

thanks once again for dropping by today - hope you like today's card. 
hugs once again to you all and please leave a comment and I will visit your blog and leave comments on your fab cards and crafty items.

lots of love

Long time no blogging!!

hello friends and fellow bloggers and crafters.
Well - I didn't actually realise how long its been since I actually posted anything on here. Bad bad Rosie.
I cannot apologise enough if you have been popping on to see if anything new was here. I just got lost in my own world to the point where I wasn't actually sure if I wanted to carry on card making anymore. 
No doubt some of you maybe have felt like this at one time or another. I just sat there looking at all my stash and images and just thought "whats the point?" - I think its partly to do with lack of confidence (this isn't me fishing for compliments at all) and feeling like everyone's cards are better than mine. And also to do with people kind of complaining about the cost of my cards.  I mean is £2 for a personalised card too much? What do you think? I seriously would like to know.

Anyway - I have made a few cards. I am trying slowly to re-build up my confidence and went back to what I felt more comfortable doing.

So this first card is to all of you - my fellow followers, crafters, and bloggers. 

This is a 6" scalloped edged card. I printed the image which I think is a "Furry Friends" image which I found on a freebie CD and coloured him with my copics. 

 Don't you just love him - he is so cute. I love his cheeky grin.

I added some pink colour to his bouquet of flowers and some glamour dust too for some sparkle. we all just love a bit of sparkle don't we!!
I matted him onto pink cardstock and then onto the base card. the wording is done direct from the PC using a font called Alex Brush.

So here finally is a card - please leave a comment - good or bad or any advice or words of wisdom. 

Hugs to you all as always
hope to see you back again very soon.
