Creata with Carley Duff Show Today - A Few More of my Samples xx

So this week I have been busy making Samples for the Creata show on Create&Craft

I wanted to show a few cards which are all a bit different as I wanted to show how I love to make using such different Styles xx

For this Sample I decided on a Layered card using Mirror Board and Paper Pads from Creata along with Die cuts a nice Sentiment (which is a magazine Freebie) and some Flower Forming from Creata xx

For this one I made a Drawer Box Card (using my Crafters Companion Ultimate Pro) 
I've used Creata Paper Pads, Creata Mirror Board, Creata Deco Rub-on's, Creata Kraft Card and Creata Brads. I know the Calender is very nearly out of date now but I had loads left from earlier in the year xx

For this Vintage Style card I have used the stunning Marianne Stamps I brought from Creataonline, I used Muted Colours and Distress Inks to add a more Vintage effect on the Cream Hammered Cardstock.
I used Creata Paper Pads, Creata Mirror Board, Creata Handmade Stickers and Creata Flower Forming x

Then Cute and Springtime feel for this Sample.
I used Creata Special Easel Card, Creata Paper Pads, Creata Handmade Stickers - all the round Dies are from Creataonline - The Image is coloured using my Copic Markers x

Thank you for visiting today and I hope you will visit again soon

PHun 4 Pulmonary Hypertension Awareness Blog Hop - The Stamping Chef & Simply Betty Stamps x

Welcome to our PHun 4 Pulmonary Hypertension Awareness Blog Hop.

Simply Betty Stamps and The Stamping Chef have teamed up to raise awareness of theis condition

Almost three-fourths of patients have advanced PH by the time they are diagnosed. Many become so functionally deteriorated that they have lost their jobs and are dependent on family and disability benefits.

We are sharing awareness on Pulmonary Hypertension, why early diagnosis is so important for PH patients!  I am honored to be a participant in today's PHun 4 PH Awarness Blog Hop. If you have arrived from (Charlene's) Blog then you are in the right place. However, if you just arrived why don’t you start at (Amanda) Blog, so you don’t miss any of the amazing creations.

The question to answer for your free images is...(email your answer to the email addresses below)

...."How many treatments are FDA approved for children with PH?"

Betty's image - email to
The Stamping Chef image - email to

The question to answer for your free images is...

...."How many treatments are FDA approved for children with PH?"

Here is my Card made using the Brilliant Amareness Image by the Very Talented Tamara from the Stamping Chef

Ive coloured my Digi using Copic Markers and the Ribbons are Periwinkle in colour which is the colour of the PH Awareness Ribbons I have also coloured the Zebra's lips Blue as this is the colour they go if you were to stop breathing due to PH

Here is a link to the PH association website where you can read more info about this condition

Now head over to (SharonBlog to see what she has created.
