Also, if your a beginner like me, Kellie Winnell has a great little tutorial on colouring on her blog. You can see how easy she makes it look here.

For my card I have made another pocket card. Any usual visitors to my blog know I have used this style of card several times, see here. This style of card was a Make it Monday Keesh done some time back. I just love making these simple yet different cards for all sorts of occasions. If I get a chance later, I'll pop back with the recipe but as you can see it is pretty self explanatory.

And here is my card. I've used basic grey card stock stamped with the canvas background stamp in versamark for the base. The tag is kiwi kiss also stamped with the canvas stamp but with kiwi kiss ink. I've also used whisper white with the edges blotted with baja breeze. The car is from Loads of Love and stamped with black, kiwi kiss and baja breeze. The sentiment is from Wow Flowers. I've also added a strip of DSP Urban Garden, some hemp twine, kiwi kiss/very vanilla ribbon and some pieces from hodgepodge hardware. Again my camera is not being nice to me so the photo is not real great. The card looks much nicer in real life. Until next time....bye bye.

The can is covered with DSP Urban Oasis with a flower stamped from Fifth Avenue Floral with Kiwi Kiss on Whisper White. I've also added some glitter glue which is something owned by my daughter (thanks Logie) and a piece of Kiwi Kiss/Very Vanilla ribbon tied around the middle. Hopefully next week I'll start on Keesh's challenge a bit earlier than this.
Edit: I'm back and I've changed the photo's. My batteries still need charging, but at least these pics in daylight are a bit better :)
For my page, I have used a piece of textured Not Quite Navy card stock layered up with a square of DSP from Summer Picnic. I also used Old Olive, Not Quite Navy and Chocolate Chip card stock, Chocolate Chip ink on some cardboard letters and a white rub on for the word "and". I've also done some paper piercing around the circle and faux stitched with a white gel pen and paper piercing on the scallop edge and Chocolate Chip strips although this is hard to see in this photo. The buttons believe it or not come off an old skirt of mine which I have donated to my husbands rag pile but not without pinching the buttons first. These are finished off with some hemp twine. Well that is about it and although there isn't a lot of detail on this page, I feel the photos do all the talking. Thanks for looking.

I'm once again sorry for the picture quality. I cannot work my camera for cards and craft. The picture was taken at Logan's friends Grace's 3rd bithday party where a lady did face painting for all the kids. Here, Logan is in the middle of having her face painted with a butterfly. For this page I used DSP Berry Bliss, Purely Pomegranate and Old Olive card stock. I've also used a journaling sticker from Hoppy Memories scrap kit, white rub on although it is hard to see, which say "cute" before the U, glitter flower stickers, black and pink brads and pink ribbon. I think that is about it. In the end it didn't come up as well as I would have liked, but I thought I'd share anyway. If you double click on the picture, you'll be able to see it closer up.

For this card I used some of the images I had stamped at one of Gina's open stamp nights. Instead of ribbon I have used linen thread. I've also done some scalloped edges, paper piercing and used some gold brads. I've also decorated the inside of the card, something I hope to do more of as I think it just makes it that extra bit special. The sentiment says "Have A Great Day" and I know just the person I'm giving it to for her birthday coming up soon. Thanks for the challenge Gina. I liked this simple sketch and may attempt another card too as I have lots of friends with birthdays coming up.
