Hi friends.... thanks for popping by
I used a Clarity Stamp for the heart image and the sentiment for today's card.  Stamped them onto ivory card then used ProMarkers in red and grey to colour the large heart and red only for the smaller heart.
Thin mats of red and ivory card were applied and I then adhered these onto a white 5x7" card.

Tomorrow is Saturday Special Give Away so if you would like to give tomorrow's card a new home  be sure to pop back then, leave me a comment and your name will be added to Name Picker on Monday morning and I'll announce the winner

I do appreciate you visiting my blog and hope it gives you a little inspiration

Hi... thanks for popping by
This is another quick make card, you could have several pre-cut, embossed and stamped with your choice of sentiment and coloured card and stored with an envelope ready 'to go'.
I have used coconut white, milk and baby blue foundation card by CE.  The embossing folder is 'Breeze' by Couture Creations, the stamp by Phill Martin from his Sentimentally Yours Range, the gems are from my own stash.
The finished card measures 5"x7"

Hi... thanks for popping by...
Another quick card to make and ideal as a male card.
I scored an A4 piece of navy foundation card by CE in half to give me an A5 size then added a thin mat of white foundation card from CE's range.  I secured two pieces of white ribbon to the back of the final mat of navy card  prior to adhering this to the card base.  Using the double pierced square dies by SW for CE I chose 3 different sizes of dies to create the focal points of the card and on the top pieces of white card I used a selection of  Phill Martin's 'Sentimentally Yours' stamps to stamp the sentiment using Tim Holtz's Distress Ink in 'hickory smoke'

Hi... thanks for popping by
This is a DL size card with mat and layers of black and white card.  I cut and embossed the filigree vase by Spellbinders for CE on white card without using the outside cutting edge.  I then made a cut on the top of the vase using a craft knife.  The flowers are also dies by Spellbinders and I cut and embossed these in black card and placed them through the top of the vase and adhered them in place.
A very quick card to make

Happy start to the week bloggers and thanks for popping by...
A new challenge starts today at 'Crafty Cardmakers', the theme being 'texture' and this is my contribution as part of the design team.  Take a visit to the blog and see the fabulous ideas and creations from the design team members.
My card is an 8" square with several mat and layers in white and purple.  I used a mask to create the main focal point, and my apologies as I can't find the name of it anywhere!  I applied Cosmic Shimmer Texture Paste by Creative Expressions (CE) over the mask then carefully removed it to allow the texture paste to dry.  I used a Memory Box Die to cut the smaller focal point, 2 in purple card and 1in white card, overlapped them slightly and once the texture paste was dry I adhered the swirls to the card.  The sentiment is from my stash and stamped onto vellum.  A finishing touch of purple gems to two of the corners completes the card
Thank you for visiting my blog, I always look forward to reading your comments...

 Hi... thanks for popping by
Today's 'give away' card is a very pretty 7" square card with thin mat and layers of pale blue and dark blue card stock.  I've used 2 dies from SW's collection for Creative Expressions, adhering the 'pointed' ones to each corner then filling in the spaces with the remaining scalloped edge one.
I've used a Memory Box Die for the centre and cut this once in the 2 blue cards and 1 in white card.  I stamped the sentiment onto the pale blue card then off set the 3 layers prior to adhering to the card
If you would like to give this card a new home leave me a comment and a name will be picked at random on Monday morning and announced here

It's not a problem if you live over sea as I'm happy to post to you
Have a great weekend
