Cards as promised

Here are the pictures of the cards I promised yesterday. The first is for my Brother and is stamped and coloured with promarkers. I must admit I used to be a watercolour girl but since these pens came out I can't leave them alone. They are so easy to use, just love them wish I had every colour.
The second card I have made for my Daughters boyfriend who bikes all the time and all over the world. It's not his birthday until the middle of March but thought I'd best get in front . He just lives for his bikes so hopefully will like this easel card.  It's my hubby's birthday in March as well just have to think what to make for him. Must admit thats a hard one.

Happy crafting to you all , hope your having a good week. See you soon Hugs x ChrisB

Sorry not much activatity at all this week. I started with a cold and cough last Friday and have spent most of my time in bed. I did drag myself to the doctors on Monday, what a waste of time that turned out to be. Because of my chemo they would not give me anything not even a cough bottle. They said go to the chemist and get something without any drugs in it, I ask you.
I have felt a tiny bit better today and have made a couple of cards whilst sat in bed. Will try to get on the computer again tomorrow to get some pics done. Off to try and get some sleep now and hope I'm not coughing all night like last night. I realy need to shake this cold off as my next chemo is Wednesday the 1st.
See you soon. Love and hugs xxxChrisB

I've managed to play again.

I've managed to play again a little bit. It's very hard when you can't get into your craftroom. With my son living in there all the time, I only have a small amount of stuff stashed in my dining room so I am only getting to use that at the moment.   I  am enjoying myself though when I can feel up to it. I have made three very different cards, a very quick one using a reduced  vintage feel card and sticker set that as loads of pieces in it. Then another using the lovely Indigo blue stamp and another using  a Lili of the valley image.
Thanks for all your lovely comments on my last cards and for thinking about me, they are much appreciated. I have seen most your beautiful cards but sorry just don't have the energy to leave you all comments at the moment.
I have spent the day colouring another image in with promarkers so hopefully will get to make another card with it soon. Happy crafting hope you are all well. Love and Hugs xChrisB

Sorry not been around

Hi sorry not been around this week. I wasn't feeling to hot Monday and Tuesday very tired. Yesterday I had my 3rd chemo session and it took five attempts for them to get my canular in. But they managed in the end thank god. I was also home in record time for about 2 oclock so turned out to be a good day in the end. I even got to finish some cards. Hope you like them. The first one which is Grey ,Red and white I have entered for a challenge on Going Buggy it's Enfys first challenge. The second one I have used a Debbie Moore cd and one of the Glitter girls boards that was a present.The Warren card was one of the pictures that I won before Christmas from Kath's Blog. He was coloured with Pro markers .I cut an aperature in the card and a scalloped frame with spellbinders then just added some grass.
I have also been playing  with some small bamboo dominoes. I will post some pictures as soon as I have finished them. 
Sorry I have not been able to catch up with all your blogs lately. I have not been sleeping  so the doctor as given me some sleeping tablets for 5 days to try and get my sleep pattern of track and I'm trying to go a bit earlier as well. I'ts hard as I only get into my craft room at 10 oclock when my son gets up to go to work. Hopeful will get to visit soon.  Hope your all having a nice time crafting and that life is treating you well.  Hugs to you all. Chris B xxx

I saw a little birdie

Here is my card I saw a little birdie and fell in love with this image. I think he's so cute with his little bobble hat. I have printed it off a Cd called Twelve cards of Christmas by Ella design. There are lovely designs on it and quite a few can be used throughout the year not just Christmas. I coloured it with promarkers, the BP was a craftwork cards free out of a magazine. I punched the snowflakes and coloured with promarkers and added some crystal gems.

I have also made a couple of cards this afternoon, one using an old kit I got from QVC years ago. I used a Lili of the valley sentiment stamp. For the other one I stamped and coloured a Lili of the Valley image and a Sentiment stamp and used my nestabilities and a punch for the whirls.  I had thought of watching Tv today but couldn't find a single thing I wanted to watch. So just made a mess with craft stuff spread everywhere all over my dining room table and my lounge floor. I'm so messy you would not believe just to make two little cards. I hope you have had a fun day. Off to catch up with some blogs now before bed. See you soon Happy crafting . Hugs x ChrisB
