Sisterhood of Crafters- Dies and/or Punches

This is my 2nd card from my month as a step sister with The Sisterhood of Crafters, their theme this fortnight is Die Cuts and/ or Punches. I'd like to thank them for the opportunity to be part of their team.

People who know me will know that I have a rather large butterfly and moth phobia. It is as much as surprise to me as to anyone else that this is my second card to feature butterflies today!

Here is my card, I'm quite proud of the mirror!

I♥ProMarkers Challenge 229- Monochrome

Good morning, we are currently having summer in Manchester and very nice it is too! Lovely warm evenings sat reading my Kindle out on the patio, or chatting with the neighbours down the road waiting for Kenny the ice cream man to show up.

This week on I♥ProMarkers our theme is Monochrome and we are being sponsored by Visible Image who will be offering a stamp or two as a prize.

I was lucky enough to be able to use Visible Images Katie Kisses Stamp Set on my card and chose shades of orange as my colour!

Videogame Vince from Dr Digi

Increasingly these days there's nothing the men in our lives like doing more than kicking back and playing a game on their XStationTendos! Not quite sure they all show such sartorial elegance as Vince does in his vest and undies but it's something they can aspire to! Vince is very into retro games at the moment so is going through his old ones, playing the original game about Italian plumbers amongst others!

You can find Videogame Vince HERE and some of these wonderful papers from Arcade Addict HERE, the Pac Man paper I used comes with Dr Digi's Techno Pack to be found HERE for a bargain £10, you can find the Techno Sentiment Sheet there for the little mushrooms or buy it individually HERE.

Hope you all have a lovely weekend

Nurse Daisy from Dr Digi's House of Stamps

When you are a poorly bear, you need a caring nurse. This lucky bear, let's call him Monty, has the wonderful Nurse Daisy to care for his every need. It has to be said that Nurse Daisy has excellent bandaging skills although the hot water bottle drip might be a little OTT! Monty's not convinced that he needs to be a soggy bear!

You can find Nurse Daisy HERE along with oodles of other stamps, all great value, I sell my cards on a market and the Dr Digi cards fly from the stall so get those pennies out!
