Christmas Cutie!

We have another challenge starting at Penny's and this week's theme is Children and or Christmas. I got to play with a lovely image from one of our sponsors Crafty Sentiments and this is what I made with it

The papers are from my stash, the sentiment is embossed onto matt gold card and all the layers have been matted onto matt gold card, I coloured the little lady with Copics and added some glittered Flowersoft to her muff and ear muffs

I hope you will come and join us in this cute challenge over at Penny's Paper Crafty - see you there!

This week's Colour Challenge was chosen by Ursula and she picked this amazing inspirational picture

For this week's challenge we would like you to pick three colours from the five shown and make a card, adding the twist of 'Add Stripes'.

For my project I have used an image from our lovely sponsor Bugaboo

I love this beautiful image and I tried my hand at digital colouring and I think it came out quite well! The stripey paper is from my stash and I cut the rainbow stripes from some card I found in my stash!

I hope you will join us this week for this great challenge!

Another Christmas Card Done!

Yes I've finished this month's DS4J progressive Christmas card! This month has the cutest Santa drawn by the very clever JenLee

Eagle Days

Hello and welcome, today we have a new challenge at Penny's Paper Crafty and it's that old favourite again 'Anything Goes'.
We have two lovely sponsors this week - the Paper Shelter and Stamp Art Design.

I coloured the image with Promarkers. All the papers and buttons are from Docraft.

Please come over and join us at Penny's this week - we'd love to see you!

The new challenge at Digi Sketch has a fabulous theme hosted by Caz - Fairies!

I love fairies, I always think that they express our inner child - didn't we all go looking for the fairies at the bottom of the garden and how many of you still do!!

Our sponsor for this challenge is the wonderful Stitchy Bear Digi Outlet and I got to play with this brilliant digi by Barbara Jensen - Bird of Paradise

This is our sketch for this challenge and I hope you will be able to use it

This is what I came up with

I think she is lovely and a different fairy from the norm!

Sunflower Sprite

On the Aurora Wings Challenge Blog you will find this gorgeous sprite as a freebie!

I coloured it up with a mix of Promarkers and Copics and decided to make a shaped easel card to put my sprite on, I think it's really sweet!

Now I'm going to pop over and enter it into the Aurora Wings Challenge to use a Sprite!

Thanks for stopping by!

What Book Inspired You?

That is what we'd like to know this month at Dragonfly Dreams - we'd like you to tell us what book inspired you as a child or even a book you read to a child!

Our wonderful sponsor Stichy Bear Digi Outlet gave us some beautiful digis to work with. I chose Mad Hatter from BB Kakes. As a child I loved Alice in Wonderland  I read and reread that book until I could recite it, I think that's where I got my love of fantasy from. When I saw this image I knew what I wanted to do and it turned out reasonably how I imagined!

I coloured her with my usual mix of alcohol markers then cut her out using an oval cutter. The base card is red pearl, I found a free image site to get a pack of playing cards then printed out the pack and cut them all out, the Queen of Hearts I printed larger as she is quite symbolic in this story, courtesy of spray glue I then arranged my cards around Alice.

I hope you will all come over to Dragonfly Dreams and join us in this fun challenge - I hope to see you there!
