BIG GUY GOLFING


 I have a few male cards on my to-do list, so a simple male card from me today, using a super image from Mo's Digital Pencil, called Big Guy Golfing.


I've coloured the image with markers and gone for a super simple card design, using papers from the PhotoPlay Fetch paper pack.

I've added a full set of Jolee's dimensional stickers with a golfing theme, and really, that's all the card needed.





That's it for today.  Thanks for popping in for a look!

ROOTED IN CHRIST


 I decided to make this a bridge-fold card specifically to accomodate the 'Rooted in Christ' banner.  Both it and the fantastic Bible are Jolee's, and I've had them sitting in my sticker box for years.  Recently a young man in our family has been ordained as a minister, and I thought they'd be perfect for his birthday card.


My paper is from the DCWV The Timeless Type Stack paper pack.  

The image is called Reading Boy by Krista Smith.  I added the 'Holy Bible' to his book and coloured the image with Copics.

I typed up the sentiment - a beautiful benediction from Numbers 6:24 - 26, using LD Wedding Ornate font.

I've added a few America Crafts puffy dots.




Thanks so much for popping in for a look today!

PASSION FOR MARKERS CHALLENGE #601:CELEBRATE!


Good Morning lovely crafters!


We have a new challenge on the go at Passion for Markers, and our lovely Elaine has chosen your theme for the week:
CELEBRATE!

Up for grabs are 3 digi images from our generous sponsor





I've decided to celebrate LOVE this week, with an Anniversary card.  I've used Unknown Dancers on my card, and coloured the image with Copics.  

First a brief story: I love to dance!  Too many years ago to mention, my husband agreed to take Latin American dance classes with me, and one of the dances we learnt to do was the tango.  I loved every second of it, until one day I chose to wear open shoes to the class, rather than closed toe shoes, and as my hubby stepped forward, the sole of his shoe slid across the top of my foot, and hooked my toenail, ripping my toe and ending our class with a fair bit of angry muttering.  Entirely my fault of course.

Other than the memory of that day though, the tango always bring s a smile to my face and holds a special place in our hearts, and this image has always reminded me of our tango days.

On that note, have you watched the movie Scent of a Woman?  Not only does it show Al Pacino at his absolute finest, but there's a tango scene in the movie that is positively beautiful.  My hubby and I used to put that movie on in the background while we practiced our tango at home 🥰

Time for my card!

My paper and the tag are from the Stamperia Passion paper pack.  I've distressed and inked the edges.  I've added Prima flowers and a few pearls.  I found a teeny pre-made bow in my stash, which I've added to the tag.  The hearts are Celebr8 laser cuts, which I've coloured with markers.






The girls have put together a beautiful set of inspiration cards this week, so be sure to pop over to have a look.  Thanks for popping in to see mine!

PAPER NEST DOLLS CRAFTING AVERY



I just love finding images with a 'crafting' theme, because we all know so many fellow crafters and an image for a card for one of them is actually quite hard to find.  This one is called Crafting Avery.



I have coloured the image with Copics and used a sheet of pearlescent cardstock from the Core'dinations Gemstones paper pack, to frame the image and papers.

My papers are from the DCWV Fairytale Floral paper pack.  The sentiment is an Art Impressions stamp from the Crafty Girls set.

I've added a satin ribbon and flowers from I Am Roses, as well as a few little flower buttons and a few KaiserCraft pearls.  The fabulous crafty stickers are from the PhotoPlay Crafting With My Gnomies collection.





You can find more of these cuties in the Paper Nest Dolls Store.

CUTE AS A BUTTON MEDITERRANEAN CRUISE



This gorgeous image comes with a few extras, which I chose not to use for this card.  The image is called Mediterranean Cruise.  I have coloured it with Copics, and used a Creative Dies wonky stitches die to cut it out.



My papers are from the Maja Design Little Street Cafe paper pack.  

I've used several elements from a Celebr8 laser cut set and coloured them all with a black marker - the sentiment, and corner designs.  My flowers are Green Tara.

I've then added a bow with a Tim Holtz heart attached.
