Clayton's Bookmark...

.....and Card!

Hello Blog land, yes it's me again, well my creative fingers have
been really busy so has my brain, does anyone else get this where
there is not enough hours in the day to complete all the different
ideas that are flowing through your brain and you don't have
enough hands either???? well that's my problem at the moment
hence my craft room looking like a bombs hit it!! Hee hee,
Here is a little bookmark I have made today with this beautiful
image from Sugar Nellie,

isn't it gorgeous? It is for a neighbour who had a little boy
I think about 3 months ago now!! tutt tutt, nothing changes,
well I have finally finished this little gift and card for him. He
can probably read by now!! Now this book mark has been made
using lots of different card stock from my bits and bobs box so
I have no idea where they are from!! Sorry! My image has been
water coloured with paints, ribbon is from stash. The design is
from Marlene's sketch over at the Sugar Bowl so I will enter it
into that Challenge which also has the theme "One for the boys"!
I am also entering this into YNS (Your Next Stamp) challenge
blog as they asking you to create a bookmark! So head on over
to these fab blogs and check out the goodies on offer and join
in the fun!

Double Double, Toil and Trouble.......

.......Fire Burn and Cauldron Bubble.

Hello lovely crafters, I hope your hands are busy and your
creativity is overflowing. I thought I would make a Halloween
card today as it is nearing that Spooky time of year again!
Don't you just love this little Tilda with that cobweb between
her hat and broom.
I have coloured her with my water colour paints and am
really pleased with the effects of the three colours together,
purple, black and orange. The bat and pumpkin in the corners
are just sequins from a pack. The little book of spells I made
up from some purple glitter paper for the cover and inside some
white card which I have handwritten spells and added two
punched stars.

This is the black backing card I made by just drawing the web
with stickles Stardust, what a fab effect don't you think?

I also made the orange backing paper by printing Shakespeare's
Double Double toil and trouble onto it from the Computer/

here is a little close up of Tilda's book of Spells!
I hope you all have a Spooktacular Halloween, TFL Sue xx

Just a Note!

Hello lovely bloggers I just had to give this little Tilda an inking
she has been sitting there waiting patiently playing a little tune
every time I see her; so I have followed this fab sketch by
the lovely Jacque over on Friday Sketchers. Tilda has been
water coloured with paints and Le Plume II water colour pens,
all papers are K & Co recycled apart from worded paper which is
K & Co Life's Journey, lace, flower and pearl heart from stash,
sentiment done on computer onto music paper from photo bucket.
Think that's it have a lovely Wednesday, TFL, Sue xx

17th Wedding Anniversary Card

Good Evening to all you lovely crafty bloggers, thought I would
share with you the wallet card I made for Hubby for our
17th Wedding Anniversary!!! I was surfing the net as
you do and found this beautiful poem which in turn
inspired this card.....

Front of wallet (which I made from a piece of A4 craft card)
stamped with the swirl stamp from PM Summer Bloom in
Collection with Jet Black Staz On, heart border punch is from
Fiskars and the pretty heart punch is Martha Stewart.
Distressed with Tim Holtz Vintage Photo

Hearts on inside are drawn freehand and cut out from two
complementary papers, fixed with eyelets and tied together
with string.

All wording printed from PC with the words I wanted to
emphasize in Red.

Here is the beautiful poem,
Back of card insert.
