Mo Manning DT Call

Who doesn’t love Mo Manning digis?  I certainly do, so I have to try for the DT call.

I have made a card using a simple layout with minimal embellishment so as not to distract from the joyful image.  This is a perfect anniversary or later-life-wedding card.


I am entering the DT call here:

If you’d like to see some of my other Mo Manning creations, please take look here.

The digi stamp is available here.

As well as the DT call I will enter this card into some challenges: – Diamonds are a girl’s best friend – uses a digital image – life’s special occasions

Thank you for looking – hope you have enjoyed my Mo Manning cards as much as I enjoyed coloring and making them!

Monochrome Daddy’s birthday Card

I followed several challenges making this card.  Firstly it is a one layer card – I have stamped diectly onto the cardbase using Papermania brown pigment ink.  I used a variety of stamps rfom my stash, the bunting stamp was free in a magazine and the letters are again Papermania.  I decided to stamp over the gold border line and then ink around the dges  omake a frame.  It was a bit of an experiment but I was very happy with the end result, let’s hope my hubby will be too!


The challenges I am entering are: – one layer card – monochrome – birthday card – stamp along the edges – banners – one for the boys – monochromatic

Thank you so much for taking a look at my card – please stop back again soon.

Free birthday card

Here is a card made from freebies apart from the card blank, even the ribbon was a trim on a gift that held the tag. Ironic that I spent so much money on crafty stash then repeatedly use free papers to make my cards!!

Hope you like it – I’d be delighted to read your comments.


These are the challenges that I’ll be entering: – birthday cards for kids – put a tag on it – happy birthday – pastels and/or polkadots – colours: beige, pink, rose – use kraft

Thanks for dropping by,

Scrappers Delights – Baby Boos bloghop

Today sees the launch of Baby Boos at Scrapper’s Delights!  Here is my card, made with one of the fabulous new releases. The papers are from Nitwits and came free with a magazine last year – must use up my stash – I printed out the sentiment myself and although this digi could be used for many occasions, I had to make it an Easter card, and will save it carefully for next year.
