Promarker challenge and Dareu challenge


This weeks promarker challenge was to use cinnamon and pumpkin. I was delighted to also discover that the dare u challenge this week is to use chocolate and brown. My images are from pollycraft, papers one freebie and one pink petticoat and I had great fun distressing the buttons. I haven't put a sentiment on it as I felt it could be used for several different occassions and I would be able to add that later.

Pollycraft Monday challenge


This week on Pollycraft Monday challenge, the challenge was to use 2 papers, 3 embellishments and 1 image. Here's my take on the challenge. This also fits last weeks promarker challenge to use apple and pastel pink! I am a week behind lol!! The papers are freebies from a mag.

A card for KathyK!

This card was sent to my friend Kathy on Craftbubble when it was her birthday. She loves purple!!

Teresa's card

This was for my friend Teresa! I couldn't post it before as she might have seen it! We set ourselves a challenge to send a card with a recipe of cute companions stamps, pink petticoat papers, two flowers and two brads. I used promarkers and h20s to colour. I also made the little butterflies 3d.

Dottie's world challenge


This week on the Dottie's World challenge blog was holes and distressing! I was very distressed at first on this challenge, but then I was looking at my beans in the garden and saw the holes made in the leaves from those darn pests and I was suddenly enlightened! I used free papers form a card mag, a penny black bee and the little wellies were from the new cute companions stamps. Coloured with promarkers and H20s. I distressed the little sizzix flowers.

just because




Finally for now a couple of cards that will go in my pile which can be used in emergencies!

My Mum's birthday


Happy birthday Mum and here's the card that I made for her using the cute companions stamps and new cdrom

Dare u to digi stamp challenge and allsorts challenge


I managed to fit two challenges in here! I am pleased about that! The dare u challenge was to use a digi stamp as usual and ribbons. the allsorts challenge this week is to use pink and white, my fave colours! I love this card and don't want to be parted from it!! The image is new from digi stamp boutique.

Craftbubble challenge


Over on the craftbubble lets get stamping group there is a challenge this week to follow Katie's sketch with the added twist of using colours together that you wouldn't normally and using up old leftover scrap bits from your stash. I actually found this quite difficult as I didn't seem to have enough in my leftovers to put together a really good card. Here's my effort anyway. I have used a digi image form the digi stamp boutique, the little bird is from my win from willow designs, which is also a download and the papers are various bits that I have printed out and used! Also the butterflies were stamped from a cute companions set, leftover from making another card which I can't put on here yet until the ricipient gets it!! Yes, you Teresa!!
