Magnolia Challenge Card for my Grandma

Hope everyone's enjoying the warm weather while it lasts. I was at work today so I missed most of it, but I managed to get a bit of sun when I decided to do the 40 minute walk home instead of catching the bus.

This card is for my Grandma's 87th birthday next weekend. I decided on an easel card and it's based on the sketch over at Friday Sketchers.

I've used the Magnolia stamp "Tilda with presents" coloured with copics. The DP's are from the Forever Friends "Pink Parfait" paper pack.

Hanglar Four Challenge card

Just a quick post to show this card which I've made using this cute hAnglar image. It took over 3 weeks for the parcel containing these stamps to arrive from Sweden - I thought it had gone the same way as my Magnolia Spring Kit (which never arrived - they have sent me a replacement though, which was delivered today and I can't wait to start playing!!)

The image is coloured with copics and the DP's are Tim Holtz "Vintage Shabby" paper stack and the button paper is K & Co.

Papertake Weekly Challenge - Sparkly Ladybug

The past four weeks have gone by so quick so here is my last card as part of the GDT over at Papertake Weekly. The theme this week is shiny/sparkly.

I have used the new CC Designs stamp " Ladybug Nora" coloured with copics. The DP's are a mixture of Papermania "Henbury Lane" paper pack (Pink dots) and DCVW "Nana's Kids" mat stack(Ladybugs).

You can't really tell by looking at the picture but the dots on the pink paper are all glittered, the ladybug paper is glittered and so is the green scalloped circle and if that wasn't enough I also added lots of gems. You can never have too much "bling"!!

Papertake Weekly - Sketch Challenge

Just a quick post to let you know that this weeks challenge over at Papertake Weekly is a gorgeous sketch by Dawny.

It's sponsored this week by Sassy Studio Designs and I have used one of their images - Little Honey - Mad Hatter coloured with copics, The DP's are Papermania.

I've scheduled this post for about one o'clock so when this appears online I should be out enjoying the sunshine somewhere (If the sun come out!!!) - I'm on holiday this week - can't decide what to do so I don't know where we'll end up!!

I'm So Distressed

I don't do distressing very often and I think I got a bit carried away with it on this card.

I have used the Mo's Digital Pencil images "First Mate Kate" and "Pirate Stuff" coloured with copics. The DP's are from the Tim Holtz Vintage Shabby paper stack.

I've used Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink and then Heirloom Gold Perfect Pearls on the paper edges and lace and then went a bit over the top with my distress tool.

I'm entering this in the following challenges:
Now I'm off to enjoy May Day - Mountain Ash Crafts have an event on so that sounds like an excuse to visit and then perhaps lunch at the adjoining vineyard, hopefully it's not going to rain!!
