I seem to be stuck in purple mode!

For some reason,
I seem to be stuck on using purple and mauve a lot!
This is a sweet sugar Nellie image,
though she is normally holding a bunch of flowers! I was being lazy in my cutting out an cut them off.
I still think she is cute.

After having trouble with our Camera!

After having issues with our camera,
not being able to down load anything!
I really thought I would not get these pictures on here.
Here they are...
This is for the Tilda & Co blog challenge number 4

A wall hanging decoration.
Here are close up pictures of each section.
the second section, up close.
and the final section.
Each disc has space on the back for those important details to be written.
I would love to know your thoughts on this decoration.

A few more cards to show you

I have been busy making this valentines card,
for my Husband. I do hope he likes it, and realises
the amount of work I have put into it!
Inside the first page, I thought the Tilda was like me.
blowing my love to my hubby!
and the final page to this card. I made this card for a forum friend, as she has recently moved.
I must get it posted off now!

This is my first ever go at a waterfall card!I love the way they look, so I made 2!
I will make some more like this .And Finally a little card made for my
sister in-law, she turned 40 yesterday.Another look at the front.The last one of this card,
I had to add extra card to this one to make it stand up,
it was so front heavy, it kept falling over!

That's all for this time!

More Crafting!

I think I am having a really dumb moment here!
I can not remember if I had put these pictures on here or not.
Or if these were the ones I had put on the CMPC forum.
Elephant card is for my Mum from one of my children.
I love this Tilda image.
So much so I used it another time for a colourful card. An Orange Tilda. I love the petticoat layers.And again all in Pink!
And finally an ATC, the only one I have made so far!!

I have a scrummy new blog header!!!

I have a scrummy new blog header.
How posh does my blog look now?

I am chuffed with my header.
Its even got my own art work in it, how great is that?!
There is a link to Jo's shop on the left.

What Kerry Means...

What Kerry Means
You are a seeker of knowledge, and you have learned many things in your life.You are also a keeper of knowledge - meaning you don't spill secrets or spread gossip.People sometimes think you're snobby or aloof, but you're just too deep in thought to pay attention to them.
You are friendly, charming, and warm. You get along with almost everyone.You work hard not to rock the boat. Your easy going attitude brings people together.At times, you can be a little flaky and irresponsible. But for the important things, you pull it together.
You are wild, crazy, and a huge rebel. You're always up to something.You have a ton of energy, and most people can't handle you. You're very intense.You definitely are a handful, and you're likely to get in trouble. But your kind of trouble is a lot of fun.

You are a free spirit, and you resent anyone who tries to fence you in.You are unpredictable, adventurous, and always a little surprising.You may miss out by not settling down, but you're too busy having fun to care.

When I didn't spend so much time on here....

Its funny how the computer takes up your time,
So while I was waiting for the computer to
be fixed here are some of my makes.
The one below is for my sister for her Birthday.
(It's also suitable for the PTW Challenge Violets are Blue)
This one has been left blank, ready for any greeting.
This Tilda is just so sweet.
Party Tilda, I coloured her in pink and
matched her baking paper to suit. I also went through a green moment!
Tilda with Lamp.
Tilda with hearts, she is another cute one.
I am going to do her all in red for Valentines Day.I like doing Tilda blond too, it makes her looks so different.
I also went through a blue moment!

I used the same backing paper on these two cards.
But don't they look different?
Oh my goodness, some cards without Tilda,
Shame on me!!!
I really wanted a break from them for a while,
these butterfly's are from Lili of the Vally.
The brads on both of these were given to me by Anj (aka Weasel)
from the cardmaking & papercraft forum.
Ha! I had to go back to Tilda didn't I?!
Here is a special anniversary card for my Parents,
I thought the cool Edwin and petticoat Tilda were
really ideal for them both.

Being off line

I just hate the fact that I was off line for 9 days while my Computer was being fixed!

I had done a card for a challenge on the Tilda blog but I was not able to enter it, being over a week late. This was challenge #2
It had to have a number included in it!

Though the card below is just in time for this weeks challenge!

For Tilda and Co Blog Challenge #3 Shiny Silver

This weeks challenge is called shiny silver.
The Treble Clef is shiny silver, I love this Edwin.
My dad looked like this in his youth,
so it seemed a fitting card for his birthday.

I have been busy cleaning, though still made these!

I have made these for my Dad,
Though I am not sure about the small red card.
The letters spelling DAD are off a disc by Funky Hand.

My Take on the DCM 'Me and my shadow'

Here is my take on the DCM dare,

Hiya fellow darers, Jane here ! How are you all ?

This weeks dare is a hard one !! Sorry everyone,

but it had to be done !! :)

I want you to create not just one but TWO cards !

But wait........there's more !

I want both cards to contain the same embellishments and papers,

ribbons etc-

but arranged in a different way for a different occasion....

the only thing being different is the wording....

I'll let you have different wording ! (How nice of me eh?)

I'm well aware this is a really hard challenge,

and that I have thrown everyone into 2008 off the deep end....

but go on- give it a go - I DARE YOU !

I loved doing this Dare, everything the same but different.

I would love to know what you all think of these.
I made them this morning :-)

I made these last night....

I just had to use all of these images for cards.
Below the pink and green really work well.
I love this Tilda stamp, I even managed to make her trousers
look like they had stripes!
A cool blue for the Tilda below,
with added ribbon, flower, and buttons.
Another blue one! Guess I like blue. Below I used red, yellow and orange.
It has a great warm feeling to it.The Final Tilda for this session,
I wanted to try using just yellow.
I think it has worked really well.Finally two super Sugar Nellie images.
All in pink below is about how sweet girls are!
So it had to be finished off with ribbon and a flower.
A cute Red sugar Nellie.
such a sweet heart.
