Fashion Anya

Our printer had broken, so I have been waiting for my new one to arrive, which meant I have only just got around to using Marchs Digital Release from The Greeting Farm. I love their monthly release as it leans so well to my scene building

Honour Students

I always thought it would be absolutely amazing to attend a prestigious old school, with its fabulous architecture, so you can imagine my exciting when many moons ago I was accepted to The University of Leeds, I was actually gutted to find out that despite the beauty of some of the buildings on the outside they were very modern inside and the windows did not even match up with some of the floors. I remember being in one seminar room and the windows were at my feet. Lets hope these honour students are not disappointed 

Karate Grandson

Mum asked me to make a card for Jack for his birthday and being the 3rd one I have made for him I was seriously running out of ideas. So have made a karate scene. We have spent most of lockdown watching Karate Kid films and the new series on netflix Cobra Kai

Lets Have Coffee

 A super easy bit of inking today, using the caffeine critters from The Greeting Farm

Shopping Friends

 I knew when I saw these three ladies that I wanted to colour them up into a shopping theme I just was not too sure how much detail to put into the background and started a couple of times but felt that it was just way to busy. I finally settled on just a partial shop doorway

How is he 12

So Monday morning I woke up to a 12 year old!! How I have no idea, I think I blinked and his childhood was over. He is mad on computer games, especially the switch, mainly as a result of Covid I fear as this was a way to play with his friends. But we do also play quite alot as a family. He is at quite an awkward age but I do think I nailed his card

Caffeine Critters

A simple colouring/ scene building card today using Caffeine Critters from The Greeting Farm. I wanted them to be sat having a picnic and so decided to put the sentiment in a sign, inspired by a do not walk on the grass sign

Travelling Vibes

I do like these characters from The Greeting Farm and I thought it would be perfect for an outdoor adventure. Today Anya has gone travelling with her friends and has just climbed up a rocky ravine with her cute little bum bag (Fanny Pack in America)

Snowy Day

When issue 211 of Simply Cards & Papercraft landed on my doorstep if contained a stamp set called Alpine Village by Paper Discovery and that jogged my memory about a set of Paper Discovery Stamps I got back in the summer. The Alpine Village contains some of the same stamps from the Travel and Adventure About Town Stamp Set but on a smaller scale.

This would be just perfect for scene building

Mixed Media Background

I made this background for another project ages ago and just did not love it, so I made something different and this has been sat on my desk ever since. As the weeks have gone by it has grown on me and I now love it so it just had to be used.

Dodgems

Did you love the Dodgems as a kid? I used to love when the fair came to town as I was all for them. So was my brother, my other brother and sister though, nope they hated them with a passion

Todays card has been created by changing one of the stalls from The Greeting Farm Digital Carnvial set into the Dodgem house. This was incredibly easy all I did was crop the image so the front of the stall below the opening is missing. 

Gamer Husband

This stamp set is perfect not only for my husband but for most of my pre teens friends too..

Polkadoodles Gamer Dude




Martha's little 'friend' Dan is 10 and they are going to Pizza Hut for his birthday. You should hear them giggling together on the phone, they are always playing some game or other on line and sound a little like an old married couple. I am not allowed to ask if he is her boyfriend, but I strongly suspect that it is heading that way.

He is a whiz on the computer and she showed me some of the things he has coded! WOW!! So I had a brainwave that I would make him a gamer card, I had seen a cute gamer stamper from a company and decided I would use that. Came to purchase it and for some reason I had got it into my head it was a digital stamp and it wasn't it was a clear stamp. With not time for posting I remembered that Polkadoodles did a digital stamp called Gamer Dude, so I quickly purchased that and mixed it with some greeting farm digital images



There is a quick video showing how I created the card on my YouTube Channel Mrs H's Crafty Corner

Card Making Tutorial

A sheet of green A4 Card was scored and folded down the middle. The front panel was then scored and folded once more, this time as a valley fold


The yellow digital paper that comes with the gamer dude, reads hope you have a great day and this was trimmed down to fit inside the card


The blue paper also comes with the pack and was trimmed to fit the front panel


The image used a mix of brands, the banner, presents and balloons are from the greeting farm, birthday party. The sofa is from the greeting farm hello from home and the gamer dude is from Polkadoodles. I have drawn the rest in myself. I then trimmed the image using a stitched rectangle die and adhered it to the card front with double sided tape

The Greeting Farm Holiday Anya 8

Every Christmas when I was a little girl I got a new dress to wear for Christmas Day. This is a tradition that I followed with my little girl. She does not want one this year as she doesn't think she will get to go anywhere to wear one. This makes me sad and she will be getting a nice top and jeans so she can still dress up a little but doesn't feel like it is wasted. 

This holiday Anya reminds me of our special Christmas dresses.
