Back to Uni

Well I havn't posted on here in few days. This is mainly because I've started back at Uni and trying to get everything ready as this is my final few months before I graduate. I really want to do well so have to cut back on the card making a little. I did get a 75% grade for my film script which i think works out at a top end B possible A so I'm very happy about that.

Had a lecture on being prepared for the final months so I'm going to get started now. I always leave everything to the last minute and sometimes it's a bit annoying! Hopefully I may get to make the occasional card. :)

Bye for now

Sketch #2

Before I head to work I've created challenge number 2. This focuses more on the image as being the main part of the card.

Have a go and see what you come up with!


P.S. Just thought of an added extra while the sketch was uoloading.. momocromatic. I have some paper I should use up. Don't worry if you dont have any.. your card can be any colours!

Becky's Challenge

Becky set a challenge over at her blog to use only freebies from magazines. I decided to join in because I've only even bought two magazines (shock horror!) so I thought it would be a good challenge. I must say my card is rather plain, as I could have made a Christmas card but don't really feel like making christmas cards in January... maybe February LOL. :) I'll probably add a sentiment now teh challenge is complete. It could maake a nice card with a wee sentiment added.
I'm off to have some dinner before I head to work.

Blogging Is Addictive (Plus New Card)

This blogging lark is so addictive. I keep looking through everyones and don't get much done. I've opted to take up Becky's challenge of using only items from magazines. It will be especially interesting since I have only ever bought two magazines and one was a christmas one haha.

Have made another card tonight with more coredinations card stock. I love how you can sand it! Used some remains of basic grey paper. I'd love to buy some more but I find it on the expensive side! Enjoying a cup of tea then headng off to bed.
Night everyone
p.s as usual comments are welcome :)

I've Been Tagged!!

Look, I've been tagged!

Basically you have to go tino your pictures and choose the 6th folder, then the 6th picture and explain a bit about it.

My picture is a photo of a stained glass window, as you can see. The window belongs to a Wetherspoons pub called the West Kirk which has been converted from an old disused church. They have kept a lot of features inside and this is one of them. I like the windows, I think they look quite pretty.

So.. now it's my turn to tag six people. Lets see..

  1. Susie -
  2. Kirsty -
  3. Tracey -
  4. Hudson -
  5. Clarky J-
  6. Puddycatlover-


I went to see my friend today for the last time before she returns to Australia. It was quite sad really. I saw her last week for the first time in 4 1/2 years so it was really strange even though we'd spoken via msn etc. So today was the last time I would see her before she flies all the way home. We had a nice coffee and scone and a last wee chat, but somehow it's just now the same!

Off to have dinner now!

Productive Evening

I feel I've had quite a productive evening as I made another two cards. I used my new cardstock and papers which I bought today (i did say I was going to treat myself) The cardstock is this new coredinations... you can sand it which is pretty cool and if you rip it you don't get a white bit you get whatever colour the paper is.. eg blue! I'm making it sound complicated however if anyone bought the DC Creativity magazine there was a free sample on the back!

Anyway, I enjoyed making these cards as I feel my cards are always pretty boring.. so it was nice to buy some new stuff and have a go at sanding paper! The paper is from the Laura Ashley Contemporary collection and there's some pretty papers in there!
Hope you all like the cards! Any comments welcome :)

Becky's Sketch

Here's a card Becky made using my sketch. I really like this card and think the image is really cute.
