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!

Made for Kraftin Kimmie Wonderful Wednesday with only hours to spare!

I used Kraftin Kimmie Superstar stamp for my creation and coloured her with a mix of copics (hair & skin) and promarkers (everything else!)

The more you read...

I made this bookmark for the Kraftin Kimmie challenge 197 - Schools back in.

I used Priscilla for my project, for obvious reasons, coloured her with a combination of copics and promarkers, found a lovely quote from Dr Seuss and make a cute bookmark. 

Slightly ironic really, me making a bookmark, considering that I don't read actual books any more but I'm never far away from my Kindle!

Bee Happy...

This card was made for the Paper Smooches Challenge, which this week is a picture perfect challenge.

 This is the picture for inspiration - 

I used a freebee (get it!) from the Paper Smooches blog coloured with copics, found an image of a jar and used honeycomb paper from Pink Petticoat. The bees bodies and wings are shimmery but doesn't really show up in the picture. I used glossy accents on their eyes too.


I made this for the Birdie Brown September Challenge. I used the freebie provided to make my card. It's not easy to see on the picture but I cut out the middle pumpkin and layered him and added glossy accents to their eyes. The paper was a freebie from Summer Driggs

Book Pile

I made this card for my friends daughter who, after a struggle, has just become a free reader at school. This is a great achievement as reading hasn't come easy for her. Well done Poppy x

I'm going to enter this into the Kraftin Kimmie 'Embellish it' Challenge
