Digistamp Boutique Birthday Quacky Card

Good morning all,  Hope you're having a good day. 

I'm just sharing a quick card I made for Martyns nephew who celebrated his first birthday a few days ago.

I wanted to use an image that was cute but not too girly and I thought Birthday Quacky from Digistamp Boutique was ideal.

I have coloured the image with copics and Faber Castell polychromos.  I added polka dots on the parcel with a gelly roll white gel pen and covered the balloon with glossy accents.

The DP's are from the Lili of the Valley/Nitwit "Sunny Side Up" paper pack and the Papermania 'Aqua' Capsule Collection paper pack.

Seeing as this card is for a little boy I didn't want it to luck too 'fussy' so just added a greeting, a couple of pearls and a few wooden stars from a table confetti pack I picked up from the Paperchase outlet shop at Cheshire Oaks.

See you soon.

Love is in the Air Crafty Calendar Challenge Card

Good morning all.  Just a quick reminder that you still have time to enter our
'Love is in the Air' challenge over at Crafty Calendar.

I have a second DT card for this challenge and for this card I have used an image from one of our sponsors Robyns Fetish.

For this card I have used
Pussy Cat Luv from Robyns Fetish printed on kraft card and coloured with Faber Castell Polychromos pencils.
The DP is from the My Minds Eye Pretty Please paper pack.
The greeting is from an old Elzybells stamp set called Valentine Tags.

The challenge over at Crafty Calendar closes on Saturday so you still have a few days to share your creations over on the blog.

See you soon.

Happy World Thinking Day - Brownie Themed Card

Good afternoon and a Happy World Thinking Day to all members of Girlguiding and Girl Scouts.  I have a card to share today,  It's not a thinking day card but it is Brownie themed.

The other Brownie leader at the unit I run left this week after 10 years volunteering so  I made a Brownie themed thank you card to go with her with her leaving gift.

For this card I have used:
Owl Digital Stamp from Pink Cat Studio coloured with copics.
Thank you banner stamp from Clearly Besotted.
DP's are from the Lili of the Valley/Nitwit paper pack "Sunny Side Up"
The ribbon is licensed Brownie merchandise from  the Girlguiding UK website

Hopefully I'll be able to find a replacement leader to avoid having to close the unit.... and just in case you are wondering what World Thinking Day is, it is celebrated annually on 22 February by all Girl Guides and Girl Scouts. when we think about our "sisters" in all the countries of the world, the meaning of Guiding, and its global impact. 

Thanks for stopping by and I'll see you soon...

Well January has been and gone so we have a new challenge for February over at Crafty Calendar.  As Valentine's Day is fast approaching our theme for this month is
