The Goblin Queen!

This fabulous digi was a freebie on SBS Facebook group! I was very, very lucky to get her as I managed to type my email address wrong, duh! Those lovely ladies sent it to me even though I was dumb! So thank you Betty and Corinne for this lovely lady

I had so much fun colouring her, she is coloured with Promarkers apart from her skin which I did with Copics. I used some great papers from Raspberry Road then added a little lace, a fan cut with the die from Joanna Sheen, a black glittery flourish with some cool green roses from WOC, the sentiment was hand written then embossed with a marcasite embossing powder with a little inking around the edge. If you want to buy this image you will find her over at Simply B Stamps!

An Easter Cutie!

Isn't this just the cutest Easter image you've ever seen! This darling digi was for this month's challenge at Gerda Steiner Designs.

I used some papers and an egg from the Nit Wits Collection Hoppy Hearts, the ribbons and buttons are from my stash and I also cut some glittery eggs to finish it off. Coloured with Promarkers.

Why not pop over to Gerda Steiner Designs and join the progressive challenge then you could get one of these cute images to work with each month!

Newsflash! It's Tuesday!

And that means another Colour Challenge has started at the Outlawz! This week we have an old favourite and I chose the picture for this one:

Aren't they lush happy colours!

Simple challenge to use those colours to make a project and add some shine...... so here's what I made using a gorgeous image from our sponsor Sweet Pea Stamps

The image was coloured with Promarkers and mounted onto some cerise glitter card, layered onto gold paper and some green card. A nice bow from some green gingham (I bought a bow maker, can't you tell!!) Some shiny green dragonflies and a nice chipboard sentiment. I will send this card to a friend you had the biggest ginger cat you have ever seen, called Basil, she was watching Fawlty Towers when he arrived as a kitten. They were soulmates and he sadly passed on three years ago aged 19 - she won't have another cat but she so misses him and she will love this card!

Well that's my offering for today, come on over to the Outlawz Colour Challenge for your chance to win some gorgeous digis from Sweet Pea Stamps!

Dragonfly Dreams into March!

Dragonfly Dreams are into the March challenge and this month we are sponsored by Melonheadz

we got some of their cute images to work with and I used the floral collection to come up with this one!

As it's officially the first day of spring in the northern hemisphere I thought I would make a Spring card!

I used a selection of the spring flowers in the collection and built them up into a nice spring bouquet!
The papers are from a Tatty Ted collection and I added some turquoise gingham ribbon, some teal glitter corners and a dragonfly (what else could I add!) a little bling and this was the result!

I hope you will come on over to Dragonfly Dreams and join us this month in this new challenge!

Hope to see you there!

Outlawz Progressive Challenge!

We have a new Progressive Challenge starting at the Outlawz and this month our sponsor is Gerda Steiner! I so love her work and this digi is a dousey!

I coloured the image with my new Chameleon pens, I think they will be great for my travels - not so many to take but will end up as a full suite of colours. I used some teal glitter card as my base and cut some mirri adhesive papers for the border, a wooden sentiment and some glaze on the balloon and I thing it ended up a cute card!

I do so love Gerda's work - it's just the cutest there is!

So I hope you have been playing with us in the Progressive challenge  but even if you haven't you can go over to Gerda Steiner Designs  and buy the image, make a project and enter the challenge (see the roolz on the front page) and then you will get next month's digi for free! I really hope you will join us - see you there!

Beware the Ides of March!

I can't believe it's March - it only seems like I've blinked since Christmas!

We have a new challenge starting at Eclectic Ellapu and this month the Pink team's challenge is everyones favourite - Anything Goes! So for my project I would like to share this card I made for my Granddaughters 13th Birthday - boy that makes me feel sooooo ooooold!

I so love this image from All Dressed Up and it's perfect for GD as she lurves to shop! Mum and Dad took her to London to indulge her passion!!

Coloured with Promarkers and the papers are from a Tatty Ted collection, flowers from WOC, the silver mesh I found in the Works - they have some good crafty bits in there now!

We'd love to see all your lovely projects this month so come on over and join us at Eclectic Ellapu!
