Creative Craft Challenge - 3D it

It's Tuesday again so that means it's time for a new challenge over at Creative Craft Challenges.  The theme this fortnight is "3D it" so we need to see a bit of decoupage or lots of layers.

For my card I have used a stamp called "Go girl go" which is by one of our sponsors for this challenge "Love to Stamp".  I've coloured her with copics and added a couple of layers. Being so thin I found the hula hoop a little difficult to decoupage, in the end I cheated and just used a bit of silicone glue behind the one section that went across her body.    The DP's are from the MME Lime Twist "Happy Go Lucky" paper pack.

Creative Craft Challenge - Pretty Blossoms.

Here I am at work during my lunch rushing my posting again, it doesn't help that my computer keeps chucking me off the Internet, anyway enough of that, today it's time for a new challenge over at Creative Craft Challenges

For those you who have been across to Creative Craft lately, you will have noticed we've been having a few problems with posts disappearing and lots of other spooky stuff happening so we have decided to change our address. You will now find us at http://creativecraftchallenges2.blogspot.com/ so don't forget to visit and become a follower or add our new address to your favorites.

This fortnights challenge is "Pretty Blossoms" and for my card I have used the stamp "Emma Rose Garden"  which is one of the new images from LOTV.  This has been coloured with copics, and my dotty background seemed to take forever to finish!!!!

The DP's are from the My Mind's Eye "Quite Contrary - Summer Papers" pack.  It was my first attempt using my English Rose die cutter and it took me about five attempts before I got anything half decent but I was determined not to give up.

Crafty Calendar July Challenge - Under The Sea

It's the first Saturday in July so it's time for a new challenge over at Crafty Calendar.  Due to me being at work today, I've scheduled this post so hopefully when this goes live the summer weather is still here, the sun is shining and I'll be able to enjoy it when I finish at 2pm.

For this month the theme is "Under the Sea" and for my card I have used the Kraftin' Kimmie stamp "Mermaids - Calliope" coloured with copics.  You can't really tell on the picture but I went over the tail with a clear stardust pen to give it a little bit of a shimmer.

The DP was an odd sheet of 12 x12 that I had.  It's called "Bubble Bath"  and it's from the Splash Dance range by Imaginisce.

We are sponsored for this challenge by Wild Orchid Crafts who are offering this stunning bundle of goodies for one lucky winner.

Don't forget to pop over to the Crafty Calendar blog to check out all of the gorgeous DT cards this month.

The reason for the lack of cards.

It seems to have been a while since I posted a card and this is one of the reasons why.

For my birthday back in December, Martyn bought me tickets to seen Bon Jovi in Bristol and the day finally arrived this week.

This was my 15th time seeing them and they are always absolutely brilliant.  Decided to travel light and I only took my small compact camera with me, but the pictures didn't turn out too bad.  Here's just a couple of the 400ish pictures that I took (even to me that sound a little excessive but I did have the camera on continuous shoot mode!)  ......
