My card is another Christmas card (trying hard to get prepared!) and I am using Bubble Ice skating from Lacy Sunshine.  Hope you like x
I coloured Bubbles using pro markers and layered all up using Kraft card and some lovely Be Merry backing papers.  I embossed the oval die card with a snowflake embossing folder, inked all the edges with walnut stain and added a Little Claire sentiment.  I doodled some faux stitching round everything.  My wee snowflake embellishments are two that I had made a long tome ago, they arte wood chip shapes which I painted with gesso and stamped with a blue flourish, then added embossing powder and a sprinkle of mica powder for a bit of shimmer!

Crafts Galore Encore - June Challenge

My my my June already!!!  Where does the time go?  I have spent the last few days trying to tame my wilderness of a garden and now I ache all over from weeding and raking etc etc!  Anyway onto more fun things - it's time for the new challenge over at Crafts Galore Encore!  Now hopefully blogger will behave as I seem to be having some issues!  I don't know if it me, my PC or Blogger but I will persevere in any case!

Sponsored by Beccy's Place, there are great prizes and blog badges!

My card uses Raspberry House and was something different for me as I realised I had never coloured wood before!  I think if I did it again I would go lighter on the wood or colour or paper piece it to make it look like it had been painted.  It would look great as a shabby chic house!  In any case I hope you like!

Fab n Funky - Christmas!!

Hi there - how are you all on this wet miserable day???  It has rained here for days now - I am starting to think that the sun will forget how to shine!!

Anyway, the weather seems apt for getting us in the mood for Christmas - yep I said the C word!!  Fab n Funky have a Christmas theme at the end of the month and I think it's a great way to get cards ready in plenty of time for the Christmas season - I for one need a bit of preparation!

We have fabulous sponsors this week offering the most fantastic prizes!!!



My card uses a Delicious Doodles image:  A Robins Christmas from Delicious Doodles

I coloured the image using pro makers and then added some glitter - hopefully you can pick it up in the photo!  Hope you like!

Fab n Funky Challenge

Hi All,

Time for another challenge over at Fab n Funky this week!  Hop over for some fun and prizes!!  It's a great challenge this week sponsored by:

Stampart Design by Kathryne

Who is offering a prize of 5 digi stamps to our chosen first prize winner
this winner also has the chance of a GDT spot at Fab'n'Funky

Kenny K downloads

Also offering a prize of 5 digi stamps
This week's challenge is to make something drawing inspiration from the following picture

Now, my card uses a Kenny K image - Club Kid and so I didn't take the romantic inspiration that you might expect from the pictures but I absolutely love the colour combo and so I picked out those colours for my image.  I also love the hands with the gold on them and so I decided to use a similar effect on my card with Frantage.  I picked out some wood effect paper to make it look like she is leaning against a fence.  I had a great time doing this card!!  Hope you like!

Crafting from the Heart - Challenge 18 "Anything Goes"

Hi All,

Well after a bumper weekend what with my daughter's birthday I have finally made it through!  Having eight 12 year olds for a sleepover is actually quite hard work!

At least we can relax until the little one's birthday in August now so a bit of respite is called for in this week's Crafting from the Heart Challenge - as always "Anything Goes"

Sponsors this week are:
Sassy Studios
Offering a prize of 4 digi images
Sassy Studio Designs
A Random Fan
Prize to be arranged
My card this week uses Sassy Studios "Rainbow Bright"
I used the following sketch from this week's Sketchy colors challenge as my inspiration, just tweaking a little to suit the size and shape of my image:
I used my trusty Wink of Stella on her dress etc. but the pic doesn't really show how much she sparkles!  I also tried out some new colouring on her face with my pro markers and I quite like how she turned out!  Hope you like!
