Dottie's world win!

Oh I'm so delighted to have won the pixie chick stamps over on the dottie's world blog. I'm sooooo lucky! This weeks challenge was to make a card for a child. Here's one I have made using the pixie chick downloads, coloured with H20s and I have also used Pink Petticoat papers . Can't remember which collection as it was an off cut from another card I made. I think this card would also make a lovely card for a lady too!!

This is another variation on Lauren's sketch. this time I have used a Pollycraft image, Pink Petticoat papers and Dovecraft spotty brads. I have used my H20s to paint it and I must say that I have enjoyed getting the paints out again.

Dotties world challenge

Thought I would get this one early before I return to the bomb site that is my crafting work area to tidy it up. The challenge on Dottie's world this week is Autumn and you must use autumn colours plus something gold. I have chosen to use the Pixie chicks downloads for this and have coloured with promarkers and added glamour dust and some free downloaded papers ( sorry can't remember where) The textured material was part of my blog win from Cherry so thanks again Cherry!! xx I made the little paper flower myself. I have used gold eyelets and some gold ribbon which was recycled from last Christmas's choccies!! Waste not want not eh?!!

more Christmas cards!

Lets get stamping group on Craftbubble

Over on the let's et stamping group over on Craftbubble the challenge this week was set by Karen with the twist of using embossing somewhere on your card. I have chose to use this cute image from Pollycraft and they have these avaialable as downloads for a short time only so get them while you can!

Mo's digital pencil.

I found Mo's digital pencil blog whilst blog hopping recently! They are such fab, cute images. Had to restrain myself in the buying department though!!

cute companions

I love the cute companions range of stamps and want to collect them all! I have managed to collect last years Christmas set and here's a card I made recently.

Christmas cards - images from digi stamp boutique

I just love the digi images that are so cute from Sally-Anne at the digi stamp boutique. Here are a couple I have made using them. Apologies for the poor photos!

October challenge to Nicky

Here's the card I have made for my friend Nicky which will be in the post soon! Thanks to Cherry for the image in my blog candy win. We followed a sketch and decided to think about the theme Autumn.

Last Sundays Dotties world challenge.

I am so behind! Have been having a difficult time of late and so am desperately trying to catch up with as many challneges and things as possible, but it's not working! Last weeks Dottie's world challneg was to use a charmed download and use either Halloween colours or make a halloween card. I have two cards here that fit the bill. The bright one was the card I made for my friend Teresa and the bottom card will be for my brother who is usually always away from home on Halloween. It's also a day of mixed emotions for me as it's the anniversary of my favourite uncle's and my hubby's brother's deaths.

Dottie's world challenge

This week over at Dottie's world the challenge was circles. I have had to scan it as it's so dark here that when I photographed it you could barely see it!!

A few extras I have been meaning to post

Craftbubble challenge

Here is my entry for this weeks craftbubble challenge on the let's get stamping group. Do come and join us, they are a fabby little group of crafters! This week it was Sharon's turn to set the challenge. We had a sketch to follow and had to use up scraps!

The little owl is a download from willow designs.

Allsorts challenge

I haven't done many allsorts challenges but I couldn't resist this one as it gave me the chance to use my new Pink Petticoat dvd which arrived only this week. It was a bargain not to be missed and will come in handy not just for Halloween but the papers are fab for any time of year! Anyway the challenge was to use Pink Petticoat products and "kraft" colour. I chose to use this as backing papers. I also cut out some spider images and attached them with cotton so that they dangle.
