Cherry Bird!

We have another Anything Goes challenge over at Penny's Paper Crafty and this week we have Bugaboo as one of our wonderful sponsors.

and I got to play with this cutie image!

I coloured it up with my usual alcohol markers, mostly Promarkers, I layered it up with some delish papers that I found at the Range and it's a Tatty Ted pad and has some gorgeous papers in it! The sentiment was cut from the pad too!! I added a sprinkle of gems and some tiny gold corners.

I hope we see you over at Penny's this week we love to see what you make!

This week at the Colour Challenge we have Christmas in July! Ursula chose the wonderful colour palette and inspirational picture

You get to chose three of the five colours shown as the main colours for your project, we also still have our wonderful sponsor - Bugaboo and this is one of their fabulous digis

The panel on the right is actually embossed with all sorts of seasons greetings but it doesn't show too well. I just love those birdies!

A Travellers Tale...

The latest challenge at Eclectic Ellapu has started and we have two new themes for you this week;
the first theme chosen by Valou for the Pink Team is Anything to do with Travel
our second theme chosen by Elaine for the Purple Team is Anything Goes!
Now this week I have a foot in both camps!

My first card with a travel theme has used some elements from the Travel set by DeeDee Designs, she has some cute sets that are great for making a story!

I used a base of Kraft and added some of my paper from Costco which has ancient maps on, a Kraft tage for the greeting and the elements from the Dee Dee Design set to finish off.

For my Anything Goes card

I have used a gorgeous digi from Aurora Wings that really shows the love of this mother for her children and would be a fabulous image for a card for a Mother! I have used some vintage papers and some fabulous ribbon that I found in the Range.

So come on over to Eclectic Ellapu this time and join us in this fun challenge.

Eclectic Ellapu will be going to a monthly challenge from August please check the blog for details!

The Gift!

On the Kit & Klowder FB group they currently have a colouring competition using my favourite digi artist's beautiful work so even though my colouring isn't a patch on some of the members there it was a no brainer for me to join in!

The beautiful digi is from Aurora Wings, I adore Mitzi's work she produces the most fantastic mythical images, I have so many of them but I still keep having to get that 'one more'!!

This is called 'The Gift'

I coloured it using Promarkers and Copics and tried to colour to bring out the fact that they are mermaid and merman! She is just so adorable she had to be pink!

 I then made it up into a card that I will use for my nearly nieces 17th  birthday this week (she adopted me when she was about twelve and always introduces me to anyone as her aunt!)

So that's my effort for this wonderful colouring group, if you love colouring or want to learn join the FB group!

Thanks for stopping by!

A New Home!

We have a new challenge over at Penny's and it's Anything Goes again!

Our sponsors this week are Sparkle and Sprinkle and QKR. I got to play with a QKR image

Isn't that a great image for a New Home card? I coloured it with Promarkers and matted it onto some blue card, the background paper is from the Lillibet collection and all of the pack are so sweet, I just loved the little hearts! I used a lemon pearl card as my base and matted the background onto some more blue. The sentiment is made using some blue peel offs and I cut some of the lemon card using a Spellbinders edging die.
I hope you can join us over at Penny's Paper Crafty this week!

Honey, Honey!

Today's new colour challenge over at the Outlawz has a really neat twist - make your own background!
The lovely Penny chose the colours and they are gorgeous plus that great twist!
I really had to put my thinking cap on for this one!!

So after a lot of trial and error (more error that trial, lol!) this is what I came up with

For my background I cut out lots of hexagons in the three colours them embossed one colour with flowers, one with little birdhouses and the other with swiss dots, then I assembled them on the card, I used the cute little bee brat from our lovely sponsor Bugaboo and used a printed sentiment that I glittered to go with her wings!

I hope you will come over and join us this week, I look forward to seeing you there!
