Cool kid!

Another new image- did this one for a friend at work who has a sone with blond hair who likes drums!


New digidownload image, used my promarkers and some 3d gloss. Also had some diecuts from ebay that seemed to work ok, what do you think?


Happy Easter, been off this week but so busy that only managed a few cards. Been taking my daughter to dance practice and then show was at the weekend. She loved it, i found it stressful-very disorganised back stage!!
Still did this card, had some free papers from a magazine, and a new digidownload image to play with. Had some new promarkers so looking forward to using them and trying to blend!

Card for my Mum

My lovely Mum died last year and this year will be the first Mothers Day without her. I was asked at work to make some Mothers Day cards so while i was busy creating i thought i would make Mum a special card Even though she isn't here i still wanted to make something special and we don't have a memeorial for her so i have nowhere to go to take flowers, so made this for her to go next to her ashes.
Miss her more now than ever!
Sentiment was from my goody bag and flowers from Wild orchid- bit bigger than i thought they would be when i ordered them !
Commisioned Mothers Day card, used image from my Docrafts goody bag, with paper and card from stash, ribbon from a box of chocolates i got for my birthday and some mulberry flowers and sequins

CardmakingbyDippyDi: Black and white

Another card made with free nitwit papers

Definitely for a baby boy, enjoyed the colours in this one and the ribbon finished it off

New baby- Nitwit papers

Been playing around with some free Nitwit papers from a magazine, unusually for me i added lots of bits- not sure if it worked that well, but like how the colours coordinated.
Think it would do for a new baby card

My lovely nephew will be 1 in Feb so got cracking with his card today while i was in the mood

Another schoolfriends birthday

Its a really damp and dreary day in Derby so good excuse to stay indoors and craft.
Lucy has been invited to another party but a boy this time so time for a boys card. Much prefer doing cards for girls, but have lots of boys papers to use up and am trying to not buy anything at the moment. (Although I did find a lovely craft shop called Crafty Ways and left £30 lighter!!!)
wish i had added more colour to his shirt, got ideas for when i do this one again.#
Image is a digidownlaod from pink petticoat, coloured with promarkers and added gloss to enhance the skateboard

My hubbys valentine

Life is pretty stressful at the minute so shut myself away today in my peaceful house and crafted.
The image is a digidownload coloured with promarkers and added on some stickles red glue and some glossy accents. Used my cuttlebug for the letters.

Engagement card

Also did this one for a friens who got engaged over Christmas, not to sure??

Congratulations, you're pregnant

Hi, had great fun making cards this weekend. Got 2 friends who are pregnant, so downloaded this digi image from Pink Petticoat to use and matched it up with pink and blues. Had some free papers to use from a magazine which i think really worked. What do you think?
Back to work tomorrow but hubby on nights so when i am off Tuesday i have to be quiet, so no housework for me- : )

Happy New Year

I've got a blog-exciting!! Not really sure what i'm doing but am sure will get the hang of it

I love cardmaking, but like most people struggle to find the time to do it as much as i would like.

Had my first go at making a stepper card today, my first card in 2011.Bit fiddly but think i did OK.
Made it for a colleague at work, hope they like it!
Will post some more over the next few days.
