Wish you were here

I made this for the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge too!
I used a stamp from Lili of the Valley. It took me 2 attempt to colour him, the first one was brown and looked awful but I was happy with the grey version!

Oceans of love

The Theme is Summer. I used Digital stamps from Pink Petticoat. The beach huts remind me of the beach at Broadstairs (next town over) which I avoid in the summer as it gets so very busy for such a little town!!

Tiddly inks DT call

I made this card using Wryn - Heartfelt Love (digital stamp) for the Tiddly Inks design team call.
I coloured Wryn with my copics, made the sentiment on the computer and used Pink Petticoat paper.

I don't often enter design team calls but I thought it was worth a go, I love tiddly inks digis and the Wryn ones are definitely my favorites!

Fathers day box card

I've just recently upgraded my old tired craftrobo for a silhouette portrait. My robo was a lovely little machine but the motor was going and it couldn't cope with anything too thick. The portrait is lovely, it just so much better! I was looking through the silhouette store and I found these box cards designed by Lori Whitlock. They are so cute! I think I bought about 6 of the files in one go and then went back for more. 
I then looked at her blog and found that there was a link up party
So here is my box card for my father-in-law who, obviously, loves fishing! 

The papers are digital ones from the splash collection by echo park, I coloured the elements (like the fish) with my copics and I designed the sentiment on the computer.

I made this for the anything goes Kraftin Kimmie challenge and the Seize the sketch #18 challenge.

I used papers from Pink Petticoat (that I can't seem to find on their website right now) and Kraftin Kimmie stamp Marilyn (again, can't find on her website!) Coloured with my limited supply of copics and I used my wink of stella glitter pen on the stars for the twinkle, but it doesn't show up too well in the photo.

How's things?

I made this card for the simply challenged challenge! The idea was to crop a simply Betty image and use only the face. There was only about 2 hours left to get in on this challenge so this is probably the quickest colouring I have ever done! 

I'm very please with the fact that I took the photo with my mobile and then figured out how to get it onto my blog post! Yay me!

Ekkk.... Spiders!

I made this card for a combined challenge. Deconstructed sketch 135 and Kraftin Kimmie challenge 
this is the sketch that I followed and I used  Kraftin Kimmie's Wednesday stamp.
I decided to go creepyish with this card, using echo park papers, and by adding a few spiders!

I made this for the CAS(E) this Sketch Challenge

This is the sketch- 

I used a memory box die that I've had for about a year but just haven't got round to using. I thought it would be perfect for this challenge. I seem to be adding hearts to my cards a lot lately, not because it's coming up to valentines day soon but simply because I like them :)

Whooo loves you?

This card was made for the Mojo Monday Card sketch challenge. I love sketch challenges, they give me a clearer idea in my head of what I'd like my card to look like!
This is the sketch -

I'm also entering it into the Paper Smooches challenge - anything goes. I used the owl from the Chubby Chums set

Just saying HELLO!

I made this for the Kraftin Kimmie krafty guest contest. I used Suzette, my favourite Kimmie Stamp, and coloured her with a mix of promarkers and copics. I don't think it shows up well in the photo but I used my wink of stella glitter pen to highlight her dress and glittery card for my bit of sparkle!
