Something different!

Hi Everyone!
OMG what a scorcher of a day!!!!
Did a car boot this morning and was very drizzly at 8am and thought oh no just typical, anyways at about 9am started to clear and red hot sunshine ever since! Did well at the car boot too, made just short of £100 so very happy with that and came away with a tan too!!!!
Today is a card for my daughter's friend Hayley, very quick to do on Serif Craft Artist 2 and Ashleigh is just so pleased it's personalised!
Her friend is very much into gaming, like Ashleigh and this is a character called "Jak" from the Jak and Daxter games! Hope you like it!

Thanks for calling by!

My final card of Barkley!

Oh my goodness how warm is it! Got all the windows open and the fans blasting on all floors and saw the weather earlier it's to be around 30 to 32 degrees down South!!!! I'm up North where it will be slightly cooler but I ain't complaining, this has got to be one of the best Summer's in a long time!!!
Here is my final sample to share with you made from the Everyday CD.
I have used elements from the Toppers Section, Embellishments, Borders, Inserts and Companion Papers sections from the CD and added a ribbon, swirl die cut and some pretty gems!
As you open it!
As you open it again!

I really hope you have enjoyed looking at my cards that I have had the upmost pleasure in making for this amazing launch of Barkley.
I still have to pinch myself that I am part of the incredibly talented Crafters Companion DT Team!
Still doesn't seem real to this day!


He's Here!!!! The day has finally arrived for Barkley!

Hello everyone! Ohhhhh I'm loving my day off, gorgeous weather and a the fabulous launch of "Barkley" on Create & Craft!
Here's another card that I made for the shows, it's Barkley and his little friend Purr-dey!
I have used Core'dinations from the So Mod collection and run it through my E-Bosser using the Embossalicious Dottie Folder. Next I used this fantastic backing paper from the CD and used a piece of Centura Pearl down the centre using a Darice Snowflake Folder. I coloured in with my Spectrum Noirs and added the sentiment, a few gems and a corner die.

Hello everyone! Oh a lot lot cooler today thankfully, the sun is just starting to shine now, took it's time but got there eventually!
Not long now before we see this cut little guy on our screens, Friday 12th July at 12pm to be exact on Create & Craft!
I have a coloured in creation to share with you all today. This is from one of the Everyday Stamps.
I have used an 8x8 Scalloped Card, and matted and layered with So Mod Core'dinations and used backing paper from the CD.

I have used 3 other Die'sire Dies on this card, Grace Frame, Magic Mirror and Classical Frame for the corners! 
Lastly I added some pearls and a bit of flower ribbon from my stash!

Day 2 of Sneeky Peeks of Barkley!

OMG! How hot is it!!!! Isn't it just fabulous!
Well here is another make to share with you today!  This time I have used the Barkley Everyday CD to make an Easel Card with a box underneath and decided to fill it with sweets! I have made my own little sweety bags. The card itself is made up from the Card Companion section on the CD and all I added was a heart doily and a round Epiphany!

Here is another picture with the sweets hidden inside!

Thanks again for calling by, will be back tomorrow with one of my coloured images!
Have Fun in the Sun!!

He's Here At Last!!! 1st Sneek Peek of Barkley

Hello everyone!
Oh WOW Isn't this weather just the best and it's to get hotter tomorrow!!!!
Well the time has finally come to introduce you to "Barkley" He has got to be the cutest doggie in town and he has a little friend too called "Purrdey" They are just the cutest!
The launch of this new range is coming to you as a Pick Of The Week starting this Friday and there will be 2 CD's - Everyday & Christmas and 12 Stamp Plates and I can assure you that you will want them ALL!
My first card to show you is from the Christmas CD and all the elements from the card are from the CD except for the Core'dinations and a little bit of Bakers Twine. Oh just remembered I put the backing paper through an Embossalicious Folder - Dottie to give it a bit of texture!

Hope you can pop by tomorrow for another sneaky peek but feel free to have a look at my other DT members cards, they are stunning!
Thanks for looking and love to ready your comments! Off now to do a bit of sunbathing!
