WELCOME

This blog was created to act as a record of the cards and other projects that I have made. It is for both my own reference and to help inspire anyone who wants to take a look.

I'd love it if you'd leave me a comment so that I know what you think of my projects and that you've been to visit!

Anyone can comment, even those who don't have a blog. (Just look for the word 'Comments' under the three little pictures at the end of each post). Readers without a blog can add an anonymous comment, but please leave your name (and docrafts username if applicable) so I know who you are!

Slideshows of all the cards I've uploaded to my blog can be found at the bottom of the page.

Some Cards For The Boys


Well, I have finally managed to get all my cards sorted over in my photobucket album, so now I can actually start uploading some pictures and info here.

I've actually been rather productive (for me!) since I got out of hospital. Bearing in mind my craft room was packed up for two weeks of those five weeks whilst the in-laws were visiting, I've made TWENTY cards (all different) since the 23rd June. That's almost a card a day!!

Anyway, the first card post is to show the cards I made for my cousins and family friends, aging from 9 to 15. All of the images were watercoloured using the Whispers Brushstroke markers.

Blue and Yellow Cuddly Buddly Rugby Player

I took a little artistic licence with this one as you really can't tell if he is a footbally player or otherwise, so I decided to make a rugby themed card for a real rugby enthusiast in the Leinster colours.

Stamps
Footballer - Cuddly Buddly
It's Your Birthday Scallop Frame - Hero Arts (Birthday Messages set)

Patterned Papers
Papermania Citrus Colossal paper pack

Inks etc
Whispers Brushstroke markers
Versafine Onyx Black archival pigment ink

Die-Cuts/Punches
Circle Nestabilities


The cards are based around a similar design. They would have looked a lot more similar if I'd remembered to cut down the pirate image before matting it up!!!

The next cards I'll upload are the ones I made for some young girls.
