Card for my father in law

It's my father in laws birthday today and here is his card. It's quite simple but for some reason took a bit of thinking about.
The base card which you can't see is a turquoisy blue colour and I've matted another piece of patterned card picked up at Kanban on top then a bit of Formula One decoupage, I tend to alternate between Formula One and Rugby League for my fil.
The dad was cut out (using some plasma letters which I had from Craftwork Cards some time ago ) from some metallic textured card which also came from Craftwork Cards a while ago. I coloured the letters with an Aegean Promaker.
The whole thing is finished of with cards candy and a Craftwork cards sentiment. So a real Made in Yorkshire card

Very purple

Here's a card I made for a birthday a week ago, it was very much to the wire as I had little or no mojo at the time.
The stamp is by Little Claire coloured in with Promarkers, patterned paper is Basic Grey Kioshi and the other paper I picked up at Once Upon a Stamp, I've overstamped it with a stamp from the Aspects of Design Fancy Flourishes set. Matt has been punched with a Martha Stewart punch. Ribbon flowers and brads are all from my collection and the base card is a Craftwork Cards back to basics and the sentiment is Craftwork Cards rescue words.
Thank you for looking

Card for a music fan

Well it's been nearly a month since I last posted and to be honest I've not done much but a couple of cards from a few weeks ago and a couple I've made today should fill a few days nicely.
Todays card is one I made for a colleague at work.
I've used some card and a topper which I picked up at the kanban sale day that we ent to, the orange dotty is some Crate Paper, the music was picked up at the GNPE in September and coloured with som distress ink.
The base card, card candy and brown matting card are from Craftwork Cards and the sentiment is by Woodware
Thank you as always for looking

Another stickeroo

I made this card from the bits that were still out from the Saturday Challenge card and used the sketch from a few weeks ago that I never got time to play with at the time.
So all the details are pretty much as before except that the overstamping is with Judikins Mince Flourish on this one and I have had the flowers for so long that I can't remember where they came from.

Thank you as always for looking and for your lovely comments

A loose sketch

This card is based on the middle bit of the sketch on Lili of the Valley this week.
The main image is by Lili of the Valley, another thing bought in March and not yet inked, terrible, and coloured with watercolour pencils.
The sentiment is a Personal Impressions design by Paula Pascual and has been stamped with Memento ink.
Buttons and paper string are from my box and the paper is by Crate.
Do I need to say that the base card is by Craftwork Cards.
Thank you for looking

Sketch and stash no 47

Another challenge card this time for Sketch and Stash. This one is for someone I have worked with for 12 and a half years and she is retiring on Friday. She likes to garden so I chose this well loved Sarah Kay stamp for the main image and couloured it with Promarkers. The sentiment is from my new Woodware set.
The Prima flowers and ribbon are from my collection, the flower centresare from Hobby House and the brads are by papermania.
I bought the paper at the GNPE in March this year and this was the first time I had cut into it.
Base card is by Craftwork cards and the pink card is some bazzill.
Thank you as always for looking
