Father's Day

Hi all

I am back today to remind you of the current



which is 

Anything Masculine 


and is hosted by little old me :)

So here is what I created but don't forget to hop on over and see what else those fabulous design team members and our guests have made to inspire you

I made a Father's Day Card
The base layer and contrast on this one is a dark chocolate brown and some lovely turquoise papers for the contrast.  I have used those lovely nesties to cut out the image and frame it, but did this at an angle to create the diamond shape.  I added those little corners for detail along with lots of those scrummy embellishments from the Hobby House.  (Link is in my sidebar)  The ribbon, the pearl medallion and the little and larger pearls on a scallop card blank from the shop too.

Now the image coloured as always in copics

Vintage Easter

Morning all

hope you have had a good week, and Happy Friday almost the weekend, which for some or us whose husbands go to fishing matches, means that tomorrow is my play day :) yipeeeeeeeee!!!!!!!!

As I could not play last weekend I will be making the most of it this weekend.

Anyway enough of all that two weeks ago when he was fishing I decided that it was about time that I created my very first Silhouette Cameo own design SVG file.  I have since designing draft one which is this creation, made a few small adaptions (thank you Polly for your lovely eye and Steve for your ideas to improve, I adore truthful constructive feedback)  So here it is and would love to know what you all think.

The amendments have meant that the sides will be more rounded and the handle slightly thinner.

I have used some digital papers from FAR FAR HILL, now if you have not seen these gorgeous papers please do hop over, they are free for download and you just need to leave a comment and they are beautiful. I added some lace from Grimsby Crafts and then used my cameo and some online store files to make the flowers, I added a Hobby House rose to the centre of the large flower and some Hobby House ribbon around the top and bottom. 

Now that I know how to create my own wow I cannot wait to create again, I have so many ideas :)

Here is a close up of that lovely Panel
