A Card for ArtbyMiran Facebook Challenge

Good Morning Crafters, its been awhile since I blogged again here on my No.2 blog but there has been a reason for them firstly my friend and neighbour died from Lung Cancer on the 11th, and it really hit me hard. Then her children started to clear her house out and this is because she was on Social Security who paid her rent and they wanted to clear it before they needed to pay any rent on it.
Then to crown it all while walking towards the backgate I tripped on a cover on the drain and because I was holding a bag of toilet rolls I not only didnt see the cover I could not do anything about helping myself I fell and hit my head on a brick wall, and of course it wasnt a good thing to do, I slit my right ear which is still sore and I have bruises in my head and face plus those on my body, (knees and legs). I did get a paramedic to come and check me over and luckily it wasnt needed to take me to hospital but I have found my balance is a bit of at times and Im not sure why this is happening though it didnt start for two days afterwards.
Anyway this card is created with the reserved image from ArtbyMiran these are free if you have created a card with the last image if not you pay a nominal amount less that the usual as  you dont know what it looks like until you unzip it. This image is "Sweet Sally" and I have printed her onto white card then used my copic pens to colour her, afterwards I used a Nestabilitie Die to cut her and a fancy one for the mount.
The papers are also from ArtbyMiran and this set is "Happy Days" I have used 5 of the papers and layered them up as you can see in the photo. The sentiment was stamped and treated in the same way as the image.

A Card for Facebooks Sundays with Santa Challenge

Good Morning Crafters, well you can tell me off I know Ive not been the most prolific poster of cards but as Ive been busy with looking after the neighbour its not been possible for me to do much in the way of crafting, hopefully now that shes in hospital I might be able to catch up with myself and this card Ive posted today is the start of it.
This is a Heartfelt Xmas image and to be honest I have not inked it up before and this was the theme for last weeks challenge over on SWS and I thought it would make a nice Xmas card and Im so glad I have used it.
I stamped it onto white card then used my copic pens to colour it plus some metallic pens in gold and silver. I then used my rotatrim to cut it out and mounted it onto a piece of gold card.
The base card is a 6.50"x 6.50" card and I have used two papers from one of my Sweetshoppe Digi paper set, and Ive used play background and a green one on both there is a design of holly leaves. I then used more gold card as the first mount and the papers were cut in halve and then a piece of red ribbon around the middle.

Crafty Hazelnuts Paper Patterned Challenge - March Challenge

Good Morning Crafters, well its another brand new Challenge over on the Crafty Hazelnuts Paper Patterned Challenge, and its one of the best months of the year for me as its the start of Spring and of course the clocks change and the days get longer, plus which it gets warmer and quite a few of my family have birthdays this month and the card Im going to show you is one of those that will be send to a family member.

This is one of the Aurora Wings images and I printed it onto a piece of white card and coloured it with my copic pens, afterwards I have used a Nestabilitie die to cut it out and a fancy one for the mount.
The base card is a 6.50"x 6.50" white card with a first mount out of light green card, the papers I have used are from Sweetshoppe Digi Papers and its mainly a dinosaur patterned one and I have used two of the papers and a dinosaur border punch along the edges. I placed the mounted image in the middle and the sentiment is one of the Tattered Lace dies which has been placed along the top, and the dinosaur is also one of the Tattered lace dies to.
Now that youve seen my card I do hope you will pay a visit to the Crafty Hazelnuts Patterned Paper Challenge and see what the rest of the Design Team have created for your inspiration and hopefully you to will take part in this months Challenge.
