Be Happy!!!

Over at Penny's this week we have a wonderful new sponsor Sparkle and Sprinkle and we have that favourite theme again - Anything Goes!

I got to play with a cute digi - I just couldn't stop smiling when I made this!

Who couldn't smile at this! I coloured it with my usual alcohol markers, cut it out with a circle die cutter, cut a scalloped circle from some black glitter card then cut the silver doilie using a Cheery Lynn die. I finished it off with some marcasite letters and some black gems.

So for some fun digis why not pop over to Sprinkle and Sparkle and check out some great images!
Then enter your creations at Penny's Paper Crafty we'd love to see what you make!

Bling it On!

We have a new challenge at the Outlawz Colour Challenge and it was chosen by Ina - just look at these gorgeous colours
Aren't these just the yummiest, hot, hot colours! Ina has added the perfect twist - she wants you to add bling!!

For my card I experimented with digital colouring and this is what I came up with

I used a shaped die to cut the easel card from some orange pearl card, the beautiful butterfly silhouette is from Bugaboo, our sponsor this month and I coloured it using a paint programme on the computer, I have never done this before and I was really pleased with the result! The sentiment is from LOTV and was heat embossed with some cerise embossing  powder onto some turquoise card, then I added some bling!!!

So come on over and join us for this gorgeous challenge and you stand the chance of winning some digis from Bugaboo too!

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!

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!
