Four cards today

Phew, I've been like a woman possessed these past few days!! My internet is still not fixed, according to Virgin it's a problem with the server I am on, it's "groaning" under the demand and they are busy upgrading it (what was supposed to take a day is now 15 days!!!) - wouldn't you think with all their so-called technology they would have picked this problem up before it all went to pot - I am SOOOO angry and frustrated. So apologies for not leaving messages on your blogs, I am able to visit but trying to leave comments is impossible. I keep on getting Network Timeout messages and a white screen (how I haven't put my foot through the screen is a miracle ARGH!!!) It's taken me over 20 minutes to upload four pictures so far!! So please bear with me .... I'll be back!! So, to calm me nerves I've been making some cards lol.

The first one is a combo of Basic Grey challenge(Christmas card) and Papertake Weekly challenge - sparkle and gems (the sparkle is on the wings, I promise). I've coloured the Melinda from Whiff of Joy with distress inks & H2O's, the papers are Basic Grey Wassail, the flowers are Prima and Michaels Confetti (thanks Sally), the Pearls are from Sally, the flourishes are Quickutz and the sentiment is Cuddly Buddly

This card is for the Secret Crafter challenge which is a fab sketch with a twist - use only pink, white and brown. I got this Sarah Kay stamp from The Hobby House this week and have painted with the usual distress inks and H2O's. The papers are Heidi Grace and Rayher, also from The Hobby House . The corner puch is Stampin Up, the border punch is Martha Stewart, the sentiment is Doodlebug alphabet rub ons, flowers are punched using the EK Success Retro punch and Martha Stewart Cosmos punch.





I also recieved this award from the lovely Kim, thanks so much sweetie. I'll pass it on tomorrow, I'm heading off to bath and bed now.


I also got this award from the lovely Michele - thanks so much sweetie, will pass it on once me tinternet is sorted - if ever!!! (I'm fed up now - it's been 2 1/2 weeks already).



Thanks for looking,

  9. Wow some absolutely stunning cards there Bev. I love looking at your cards, they are gorgeous and always inspire me! Hope your internet gets sorted sooon. I can totally sympathise as I had problems with my internet connection with sky when we moved house, weeks without any internet... nightmare!
    Just a quick question (I know you can't really leave comments but when you can I would really appreciate it). When you talk about using distress inks to colour your images what do you mean? Which inks do you use? Thanks.

    Hugs, Vicky x

  10. Bev you just don't seize to wow me with your beautiful creations. Your colour combos are always so smooth on the eye and you always manage to have some great dimension and textures. Now, I really hope this 15 day bad techno stint will be sorted real soon, otherwise I dread to think of all the cuts you're going to have on your feet and legs with all the kicking at the screen. Warm regards

  60. Went to the Craft Barn today, what a great place! I was really tempted to buy the Petunia stamp, didn't as I wouldn't know who to give it to for fear of upsetting them LOL! There were some great sample cards, feel a return visit coming on! I was spoilt for choice and seeing as we were off to 2 other craft shops in the area I had to be pretty restrained! I have just noticed that there is a DT call so will give it a go, nothing ventured - nothing gained as the saying goes.
