International Dance Day

Sorry folks I have been very bad at blogging my cards this month but I had to post this one as I lurve it!
The Outlawz Festive Fridays challenge has a new challenge starting today and this week we have four new themes for you

National Firefighter Day
International Baby Day
International Dance Day
National Oatmeal Cookie Day

So for my card I had to make one for International Dance Day as I really wanted a reason to use this amazing digi from Bloobell Stamps - Lisa has the most off the wall imagination and this image just makes me laugh to think about it!

I coloured the image with Copics and added a background paper from Crafters Companion, Layered up with grey and white, with a lottle bakers twine for an embellishment!

I hope you will come over and join us for the challenge and do go over to Bloobell Stamps if you want something a little different!

Birthday Beauty!

I coloured up this adorable image from Conie Fong to enter into the FB challenge. I am still practising with my Copics and starting to get used to them!
The FB challenge is Bows and I added a pretty bow on this at the bottom with some lovely velvet ribbon and centred it with a pretty turquoise rose.

Isn't she just such a beauty! I will use her as a Birthday card for a friend.

I hope you like my little ballerina!

Happy Sunday!

This little guy would make anyones day happy - this is the digi for this month's Progressive challenge at and Gerda has drawn such a cute little chap - I love him!
Well I have been practising with my Copics and I think he turned out quite well, I have made him very CAS as he has to be the centre of attention!

Isn't he just adorable? I will send him off this week to a friend who could do with a smile!

So if you would like to get this happy little chap and get a new cute image each month why not join in at

April Progressive Challenge at the Outlawz

The latest Progressive challenge at the Outlawz features a beautiful digi by Sheepskidesigns drawn by the very talented Andrea Norris. Andrea has drawn this digi in two versions depending on which side of the pond you are on. For me it has to be Mum so this is what I made with it.

I used some fabulous card from Hunkydory for my base and layered up the digi on some cerise card, both cut with a hexagon die, the image has been coloured with Copics and I used a couple of butterflies to bring it all together.
So if you are not already playing with us why not come over to the Outlawz and sign up for the challenge - details are on the challenge post of how to get your digi and if you post a project using the digi by month end you will automatically get the next one and we have some beauties lined up for you! Darcy has been so busy getting wonderful images for the challenge you will love them!
I hope to see you all there!

Spring Flowers!

Well there will be soon - we had snow on Tuesday! But all that aside we have a new challenge at Eclectic Ellapu and the theme is Spring Flowers.
For my card I used some lush card from Hunkydory and layered it up with a beautiful image from Conie Fong, who produces some of the sweetest images!

The image is called Spring Flowers quite appropriately! She was coloured with Copics - I am slowly moving over to Copics and they are so different to Promarkers its lke learning to colour again! I used a Spellbinders die for the lacy die cut and some Tattered Lace dies for the leaves and flourishes in the flowers, The flowers are mostly from Wild Orchid Crafts - the aqua fabric flower was from Poundland
We'd love to see your spring flowers over at Eclectic Ellapu (Pink team) and if you're not feeling flowery the Purple team are having some "April Showers"!
