Dart Theme Birthday Card

No flowers!  No bows and lace!  It is so hard to make cards for men! 

That being said sometimes a card comes together with the help of the perfect image, a bit of creativity and holding your tongue the right way, lol.  

My hubby plays darts in a dart league, yes ... there is such a thing!  I wanted to have a "darts theme" on his birthday card and found the perfect image at Lacy Sunshine Stamps.  

After colouring Tipsy Timmy with copics it was time to create a "dart" type background.  Using papers from my stash box, I created a pub style background and added Timmy with dimensional dots. Hubby loved it!

The dart board was from a picture I had, resized, printed and cut using a circle die and the Big Kick.

This card did make an appearance on the Colours n Cards Facebook page but somehow missed being blogged about.

Kick Up Your Heels & Celebrate!

Finally I have a card to share! This card was made for my Dad's birthday.  When it comes to cards for Dad I am always looking for images that are different and quirky. Something that will make him smile.

Bloobel Stamps to the rescue!  If your looking for something different check out this digital stamp line.  The image used on this card is Moustache Ballerina and he was coloured with Copic markers.  I kept the card simple so the image would take center stage among the stars.

Glitter was added to the stars using Crystal Stickles and the edges were distressed with my Heidi Swapp Edge Distresser.

Recent Colourings

Hi all.  I seem to be posting more on the Colours n Cards Facebook page than on the blog these days.

Why?  Well .. I had full intentions of making cards with my recent colourings and posting the cards on the blog but I haven't been "card making" motivated lately.  I prefer to wait until, dare I say .. the crafty planets line up and everything seems to flow from start to finish!   Do you ever feel like that?

In the mean time, I will continue colouring and adding to my "ready to card" pile while I wait for some card making mojo to return.

I was going to add all the colourings to this post but in order to keep it short lets just showcase one artist tonight. I have coloured more than I thought :)

Here are a few coloured digi's from Lacy Sunshine Stamps by Heather Valentin.  If you follow me on Facebook this will be a  deja vu experience for you.
