New Craftbubble challenge.

This week on Craftbubble's LGS group Karen has set us the challenge of making a Christmas card! As I'm writing this scheduled post, the sun is shining and I'm really not feeling at all in the festive mood!  Here's my card for her challenge nestled happily in amongst my strawberries: which hopefully will not have been eaten by the pesky slugs whilst I'm gadding about! My papers are Pink Petticoat from the Fairy Lights collection.  My image is a charmed cards and crafts one and the ribbon is a spool that I bought in M and S, supposedly to adorn pressies, but my cards were far more deserving!

Aren't these stamps just beautiful? This little gem has been coloured with Prismas and the papers are Henbury Lane by Papermania.

Lili of the Valley stamps.


I simply adore the Lili of the Valley stamps. Here is an old one, which I just adore! She has been coloured up with my Prismas, which have taken over as my rediscovered new love! Yes, my Promarkers are getting a rest but I don't know for how long! I know I can't keep away from those babies forever!

I have used the lovely sketch that is currently on the Lili of the Valley challenge blog.

New Dottie's World challenge.

This week over on Dottie's World the challenge is to make a Father's Day card, or any Masculine card.  Here is mine.  It has been coloured with my Prismas and the papers are very old ones form the bottom of my stash drawer. I'm very fond of this one and may have trouble parting with it!!

Lili of the Valley challenge.


I recently bought some of these Lili of the Valley stamps and haven't as yet inked them all up. They are all gorgeous and I confess that I want them all! I am fast making that a reality too!

Anyway, I decided to check out the Lili of the Valley challenge blog and discovered a fab sketch by Dawny P. I have coloured my image with Prismas. Embellishments are from Wild Orchid crafts, but be warned you'll spend a fortune!

New craftbubble challenge.

Wynneth, set the challenge on the LGS group this week ove ron Craftbubble. Her challenge was to follow her sketch and the twist was Eastern Promise.

Last post of the day, I think!


My last card of the day is this one, which again is a Mo's image and also my last purchase of Mo's images!
You know what I used to colour it, don't you?! I love the girls in their tutus here....just so cute.

Another Mo!


Well, as I said in a previous post I had to buy more than one Mo image! This time I need to thank Cherry for the backing paper as I won it in her blog candy a while ago. So thanks to you as well hun. Again my image has been coloured with prismas.

A thank you card


This is going to my friend Sarah, for being kind enough to write me a reference for OFSTED, so thanks hun. xxxxxxxx
A special thanks must also go to Susie at die cut dreams for the image which I won in one of her blog candys a while ago now.

A Mo Manning card


I saw this gorgeous image coloured in with prisma pencils on Bluebertie's blog and I knew I had to have it as well! Whilst I was on Mo's site I ended up buying more than one image and set to work with my prisma pencils. My colouring needs some work, I think, but the images are jsut fabulous.

Dottie's world and Lothian crafts challenge.

This card fits the bill for both Dotties world and Lothian crafts challenges. Over at Dottie's world, the challenge was to make a card using predominantly green and a little metal charm. This month's Lothian Crafts challenge is to make a card using a summery theme.  I thought the flowers and butterflies worked well for this. The die cuts are new and were purchased from Lothian crafts, in fact they only arrived this morning and have been put to good use already! The stunning image is one of the pixie chicks from Charmed cards and crafts.  I jsut love these downloads and use them often!

This weeks Craftbubble challenge has been set by Lauren!

Yep, that's right it was a Lauren specila this week and she wanted us to concentrate on our edges! Pop over to the LGS stamping group to see what we have been up to!
I have been getting distressed with my edges this week and also inked them and the stunning image is from Lili of the valley.  Take a look at their stamps I promise you, you will be tempted........won't you Lauren??!!

Oh I'm late!

This was last week's craftbubble challenge and I apologise for the lateness of the post Karen! Karen offered us this fab sketch with the added twist of using two colours only.  My image is from Rubbadubbadoo and the flowers are an old personal impressions stamp.  I have coloured the images with my prisma colour pencils.
