Tilda Mother's Day Challenge Card

Just a quick post to show the Mother's Day card I've made for my Grandma.  It's based on a sketch over at Simon Says Stamp.  I've used the Magnolia image "Tilda with Flower Pot" coloured with copics.  The DP's are from a Craftwork Card paper pack which was a freebie with an issue of Cardmaking & Papercraft.

I had so much trouble with the hair.  I just couldn't get it to the colour I wanted, I think this was my fourth attempt which I finaly settled on.

While I was making this card, I had the TV on in the background and I noticed a set of felt flowers for sale on QVC and I thought they would be perfect for this card then I remembered that I had some scraps of felt left over from an activity I'd done at brownies.  I used my Marianne Ribbon Flower 3 Die and my cuttlebug and I think they look as good as any that I could have bought.

Creative Craft Challenge - Bookmark it!

The theme over at Creative Craft Challenge this fortnight is Bookmarks.  I got a bit carried away and ended up making four.  These Bugaboo images are so gorgeous I just couldn't decide which one to use so I had to use them all.

All the images are from the Bugaboo "Ava and Deacon" range.  For the first two bookmarks I've used "Ava Cupcake" and "Ava Fairy" coloured with copics.  The DP was a freebie download from Bearly Mine Designs.




Now for the next two I've used "Deacon Bugs" and "Deacon Swing" coloured with copics.  The DP is from the from Pink Petticoat "Organic Kraft Pack" download.



We have two sponsors for this challenge:

Creative Craft Challenge - Lacy Lovelies and a DT call

There's a new challenge over at Creative Craft Challenge - The theme for this fortnight is Lacy Lovelies so you need to get your lace or punches out for this one.

I have two cards to share.  For this one I have used the LOTV image "Little Ballerina"  coloured with copics and the DP's are by Wild Rose Studio, the pink polka dots is from the "Polka Dot" paper pack and the gingham is from the "Candy Floss" paper pack.  The sentiment if by Create with TLC who are one of our sponsors for this challenge

I was feeling adventurous so I even attempted to make my own embellishment for this card.  I got out my needle and thread and a length of lace and made my own little Lacy rosette.


For my next card I have used the image "Now I lay me down to sleep" by Robyns Fetish and for once I left my copics on the desk and got out my Koh-i-noor pencils which I blended with Sansodor.  The Dp's are from the Papermania Regency Paper Pack.


We have 3 sponsors for this challenge:

Imag'e'nation are offering £40 worth peel offs including the wallet to put them in.

Crafty Calendar Challenge - Spring

It's time for a new challenge over at Crafty Calendar Challenge and this months theme is Spring.

I don't know about anyone else but where I am in the Midlands it doesn't feel much like Spring today - I even had to scrape the frost off the car when I got up this morning,  but some of the daffodils are starting to bloom so I'm sure it won't be long until the warmer weather arrives.

For my card I have used the Robyn's Fetish image "My Spring Garden" coloured with copics, the DP's are from the Papermania paper pack "Easter Themes".  The sentiment taken from a DCWV set.


We're sponsered this month by Robyn's Fetish who are offering 5 digital products of the winner's choice and may include digital stamps and digital paper packs



I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Die Cut Dreams - Spring Garden
Fab n Funky - Spring
