I'm Back!!!!!

So it has been a loooong time since I have had time to blog. The last time I blogged I was a mother of 2 and I am now a mother of 4!!!! Toni was born in December 2013 and Maya came along in April 2016 to join Ryan April 1999 and Lily May 2006 so getting time to craft was near impossible but now Toni is at playschool 5 days a week for a whole 3 hours a day (woohoo) and most days Maya will nap when Toni is at playschool giving me a little time to get back into crafting.
I did manage to get a little crafting done and for my birthday in May 2015 I got this as a present from my Mam, Dad and sister.
This made getting crafting done a whole lot easier.
Here are a few cards I got done in between changing nappies :)
This was the first card I made using the Cameo.
And here are a few more.


So I did get to do some crafting and hopefully I will get to do a lot more!

Last Mami Doodles Challenge :(

This is a sad post because Elisa who is the designer & creator of Mami Doodles 
has decided to close the shop :(
I was really sad to hear this news as I have loved the Mami Doodles images & was thrilled to be picked to be a part of the DT for Mami Doodles.
This will be the last challenge for Mami Doodles.
The theme is 3 patterned papers & I have to say now that I got the theme wrong!
I have no idea how it happened, I thought the challenge was for a birthday.
This is the card I made for what I thought was a birthday challenge.
I used the Hot Air Balloon image for this card & I thought I would give the clean & simple look a go.
The image was coloured using ProMarkers & I used this 
ProMarker combo
Royal Blue, True Blue & Azure.
Gold, Canary & Lemon.
Burnt Sienna, Caramel & Sandstone.
I used the ProMarkers to doodle around the edges too.
The challenge will run for the next 2 weeks so you have until Thursday the 8th of March to enter.
You don't have to use a Mami Doodles image but if you use a Mami Doodles image (including freebies) you will be entered into the draw twice.You can see the cards made by the rest of the DT (all who got the theme right lol) over on the Mami Doodles blog.
Keep checking in on the Mami Doodles blog because Elisa will be having a closing down sale soon.

Wedding Cards.

These are cards I made for my cousins wedding.

I got the idea for this card from a fellow crafters blog I knew I would have to give this a go when I seen the card on Mary's blog.
The love heart background is stamped.

Here are some close up shots of the hearts.

I used a Cuttlebug folder to emboss the "dress" & then glittered it using Stickles.
I added some gems for the necklace.

I cut the lapels & bow tie by hand from black cardstock I had glittered using Crafters Companion Glitter Spray & added black gems for the buttons.

Here is the second card for the lovely couple.

This was done using the patchwork technique that I have become addicted to at the moment.

Here is a photo of the newly weds.

Don't they look so happy.
I also met a fellow crafter at the wedding. Eve from Crafty Queens was doing the photography. It really is a small world lol!!
