Creative Craft Challenge - A sketch

Hopefully this scheduled post has worked.  The last twice I've tried to schedule a post they failed, but as I'm on holiday at the moment I have no other choice so if this has been successful, there should be a new challenge today over at Creative Craft Challenge.

For this fortnights challenge we have a sketch for you to follow.

For my card I've used the Robyn's Fetish image "A little birdie told me" coloured with copics and distress inks and the DP's are from the MME Lime Twist "Happy Go Lucky" paper pack.  The sentiment is by Stamping Bella.

Lili of the valley playing guitar birthday card

I just thought I'd share this card that I made for one of my brothers, it was his birthday last week but this is the first chance I've had to get this post done.

I've used the LOTV image "Playing Guitar" coloured with copics.  This image reminds me of my brother when he was younger and going through his wannabee rock star phase....not sure that this phase has really ended though.

The DP's are from the MME lime twist "Fly A Kite" paper pack (I love the lime twist papers, it breaks my heart to use them).

Creative Craft Challenge - Buttons and Bling

Another fortnight has passed which means it's time for a new challenge over at Creative Craft Challenges

Our theme for this fortnight is "BUTTONS & BLING" which gave me an excuse to get all sparkly (not that I really need an excuse...)

I have been busy so for this challenge I have TWO cards to share with you.  The first is a card using an image called "Quirky Skunk" which has been coloured with copics and its by one of your sponsors for this challenge Doodle Pantry. The DP's are also by the Doodle Pantry and are supplied with the Quirky Skunk digi image, considering they matched perfectly it seemed silly not to use them.

My second card is using an image called "Christmas Baubles and text" by The Crafty Pad who are also sponsoring this challenge.  The image is coloured with copics and the DP's are from the the Percy & Penelope paper pack from the Daisy & Dandelion range.  I did get slightly carried away with the gems on this card....

Crafty Calendar Challenge - Let sleeping bears lie !!

It's the first Saturday in September, so it's time for a new challenge over at Crafty Calendar Challenge.

As it's September and some animals will soon start to think about hibernation our theme for this months challenge is "Let Sleeping Bears Lie", so it's time to get those cute bear images out (they don't have to be asleep!).

For my card I have used a digi image called "Mushroom Bear" by our sponsor for this challenge Crafty Sentiments Design.  The DP's are from the Sugar & Spice paper pack by Dovecraft.

I decided to attempt a new technique for this card, something I'd never tried before so I printed the image onto Kraft card and coloured with Dewant coloursoft and Koh-i-noor pencils, will definitely try this again.

We are sponsored for this challenge by Crafty Sentiments Design who is offering four digi images of the winners choice.

We have a DT call at the moment so pop over to Crafty Calender for further details and also to check out all of the other gorgeous DT cards

Now must dash, have go to get ready for work and after work I'm going in search of jam jars (I've been given a load of greengages, so I'm thinking of having a first attempt at jam making, wish me luck!!).
