Twisted Tuesday Challenge - Sail the Seven Seas

Today is my last post as guest designer for the Twisted Tuesdays Challenge Blog.   I have been so pleased to be a part of it and have very much enjoyed every minute of it!

This week's challenge is "Sail the Seven Seas". The card has to have a nautical theme and at least 7 embellishments (there can be more but no less than 7).

You can check out the blog challenge here:

Twisted Tuesday Challenges

My card below has the following embellishments:

1. Twine
2. Crab button
3. Blue striped ribbon
4. Shell type 1
5. Shell type 2
6. Red fish sticker
7. Lighthouse sticker
8. Let your dreams set sail sticker

The boat and the "sail away with me" sentiment are stamped, coloured and cut out.

All the papers, stickers, ribbon and stamps are from the Papermania range "Ahoy There"

Big thank you to Twisted Tuesday again for asking me to guest design!!

Hope you like x

40th celebrations!!

I have two projects to post today!! At last I can show you the 40th "card" that I made for my close friend (I referred to this a few weeks ago but couldn't post it then in case she sneaked a peak!! I have various stages of photos for this one as it involved a bit of painting, kromer crackle, stamping and embossing!!

 The second picture is a card I made to order again for a 40th. Big year in my circle of friends this year!!!  Hope you like both projects x

Just Be You

 Quick card today. Got this lovely stamp set and was trying to think how I would use the bee. I thought this was quite girly and incorporated the bee in a way that sang summer. Hope you like x

Fabulous You

Tonight I am going out for a lovely meal with my close friends to celebrate a 40th birthday.  My friend has loads of shoes and so I thought that this Fabulous You set from Stampin up was very apt.  I used white Stazon ink, Stampin up card stock and a Stampin up embossing folder. I thought the white ribbon would lighten up the card and I added some gems etc to jazz if up a bit. I didn't want to put forty all over it, so I didn't!  Hope you like x
