Card for Mia..

A card for my niece Mia :0) to send along with some Easter goodies :0)

I have used another of Dawny's fab sketches from PaperTakeWeekly, sketch #11 along with the theme over at CuteCardThursday which is a card for a family member :0)

I have used this cute Hanglar image I received in a swap coloured with promarkers and all the papers and sentiments are freebies from a cardmaking mag!

I might not be blogging quite as often for the next couple of weeks as Easter hols have started here in Scotland and we have visitors coming in a week too. Still want to fit a few challenges in though :0) and I want to use my new nesties I got yesterday too, labels 2, cant wait to use them!!

Just because...

A 'just because I wanted to play with this stamp set' card from me today!! It is called Botanical Blooms and it is from Stampin Up.

I love floral stamps :0) and these are no exception. I dont use all my floral stamps enough so thought I'd make a card!

Saying that not totally happy with it LOL! not sure on the layout or the OTT bow but I enjoyed making it so that's all that matters!!

Hope you like it :0)

PBS #40 - A sketch..

I'm on a roll!! another challenge I've managed to do straight away :0) DH has taken DS for a bike ride and swimming!! so I get to spend some time in my craft room (mess!!)

I have used this week's sketch over at Penny Black Saturday by Tracie, another fabulous sketch which I will be keeping to use again!!

The stamp is called 'kickin', and I have coloured the image with prisma's and sansador. The papers are Making Memories - Olivia. The background panel looked a bit bare in just the plain green so I have embossed it top and bottom with one of the small Cuttlebug folders.

I have flipped the sketch so I could add the sentiment as this is for a crafty friends b-day next week :0)

Friday Sketchers #43 - Carole's Sketch

I'm on the ball today!! dont usually manage to get the challenges done straight away :) I'm always last minute, but saw this sketch on Friday Sketchers this morning and I had been busy colouring images last night so I was halfway there!!

Love this sketch Carole, another I shall be adding to my sketch file to use again :0)

I have used a Panduro? girl kindly sent to me by Tammi, thanks Tammi x Coloured her with my markers in the same colours as the gorjuss girl a few days ago and then I found some freebie papers from a magazine which were perfect, the swirly one is the free one, the stripy is DCWV.

Finished with some punched flowers and another pretty butterfly from a past Docrafts magazine.

Other exciting news is my Spring Magnolia Club kit has just landed on my doormat so I'll have to get cutting and inking!

Truly Scrumptious #2

I have just discovered this new challenge blog, Truly Scrumptious :0) Love this sketch so had to make a card!

Another Gorjuss girl! in a favourite colour combo of pink and brown. The papers are gorgeous, the swirly one is really glittery, not sure if that shows up on the photo.
I have embossed the circle with a paisley embossing folder and highlighted it with chalk ink.

Image coloured with promarkers, I am going to colour a couple in with my prisma's as I have limited colours in the markers and only 1 colour for the hair, so I think I'll have a go at black hair and try a more goth look :0) watch this space!!
Anyway thanks for looking and Hello to my new followers!!!

So I have coloured another Gorjuss girl in winter colours this time and made this Christmas card, the 1st this year!

The papers, buttons and alpha stickers are from a past Scrapagogo kit, Decembers? I think, I love the olive green and chocolate colours together!

Thanks for a great challenge Sugar girlies ;0)

Penny Black Saturday - Something to eat!

My card for this week's challenge over at Penny Black Saturday. The theme is 'something to eat' and I found this stamp I have'nt used in ages and the ducks are having some food!!

It's a lovely day here in Scotland, fingers crossed Spring is here :0) so this inspired me to use some nice bright colours for the card. I have'nt put a sentiment on the card as I think I will use this as a notecard to catch up with a friend :0)

Image coloured with prisma's, paper and cardstock is stampin up.

Clare's Sketch/Colour Challenge..

My card for the new challenge blog dedicated to the Clare Curd Signature Range from Papermania. These are fabby stamps with gorgeous co-ordinated patterned papers.

Clare launched these new products last weekend and set a sketch and a colour challenge for us all :0)

The colour combo was turquoise, pink and black, a great mix for a striking card. I have used one of the stamps from the Stampin Chic Party range along with one from the sentiment pack. The papers are from the 'Big One'! and the paper flowers are from Papermania too. The embossed background is a sheet of the 'black magic' range embossed with a cuttlebug swiss dots folder.
