Pollycraft Christmas

I have quite a few digistamps and really don't use them very much as I prefer to stamp my images these days, but looking through my digi collections I found this very cute Pollycraft image and so I printed out some pink petticoat papers on linen card ( which I have discovered adds an extra special touch to these papers and I love it!) and had some fun with some glitter and glossy accents and a very sweet sentiment stamp that came in my Magnolia stamp kit. I am entering this one in the new Pollycraft challenge, which is anything goes.

Spooky goings on!

I am just about going to make the Pollycraft challenge deadline with my spooky card! Pollycraft have all their Halloween digis at half price at the moment. I'm not really fussed about Halloween, but I thought that this ittle image might just do for other wizarding cards and at 49p it didn't break the bank. Hmn, I'd forgotten how fab digis are. The papers are from my Pink Petticoat collection.

Louise's Christmas recipe challenge.

Louise set us the Christmas recipe challenge over on the CMLI grroup on Craftbubble this week. She wanted us to use some kraft card, a Christmas story image or sentiment, a knot, flourish and a brightly shining star. I dug out my Christmas Elzybells stamps and a sentiment and I found this brad star that shouted " USE ME" to me! I had to cheat a bit with the kraft card and had to print it from a Pink Petticoat selection! Hope I get away with this!!

Let them eat cake.

Today's offering is a Penny Black image that I adore! Love these little mice! I'm having a bit of a run on using Penny Black images as I love them so much! No prizes for guessing my colouring medium of choice! I can't seem to get enough of these either! Ho hum!

Passionately Pink

I thought I'd try a bit of pink today for a Christmas card, with a nice bit of chocolatey brown and gold.. This stamp was a recent bargain acquisition from EBay and it hadn't been used! How pleased was I? My image has been coloured with prisma pencils ( of course) and the papers were a Christmas present form hubby several years ago! Snowflakes are Martha Stewart's! Ok they are mine really, but I couldn't have done it without her!!

CMLI challenge

This week's CMLI challenge has been posted on the CMLI group and it's blue Christmas. Blue is one of my fave colours for Christmas cards and I know it's somebodyelse's favourite too! This week I have been playing with my new Magnolia stamp kit that arrived not so long ago. My image has been coloured with prismas and the papers are old ones form my stash that I don't wnat to use up as I love them so much, but unfortunately as I love them so much they are depleting rapidly! Ho hum!

Card for Emma.

My friend Emma is having a birthday very soon. I chose  a nice simple card that's not too fussy and a gorgoeus Penny Black image which I have coloured up with prismas. I bet you are fed up of me using these!! The sentiment is a pink petticoat one and the papers were free with a pad on a magazine. Papercraft essentials I think it was, but don't quote me on it!

Simon says stamp challenge.

Here's my entry for the Simon says stamp challenge. I have used another gorgeous house mouse image which has been coloured wth prismas...( of course) The challenge is for sparkle and bling. The photo has washed out the sparkle and bling a little, but I promise you that it is there!! The flowers have been stickled and the bling is placed around the sentiment and in the corners! Thanks for the heads up on this challenge on the comments on my last sparkly card! xx

Penny Black moment.

It's my niece's birthday and she completely adores hedgehogs. I just love this Penny Black hedgehog. It's so cute! My image has been coloured with prismas and the backing papers are Christmas ones!

House Mouse challenge.

This week's house mouse challenge on the house mouse challenge blog is Christmas sparkle. I had great fun making the sparkly flowers on this one. I am also entering it for the lothian crafts challenge of "anything goes". Image has been prisma penciled and the flowers were made using nellie snellen punches covered in glamous dust which I just love!

Lili of the Valley challenge.

This week's Lili of the Valley challenge is " Let it snow". I just love this very cute snowy scene with the snow on the postbox looking so precarious!

New Craftbubble CMLI challenge

The lovely Lauren set the challenge this week on the CMLI group. She posted this sketch for us to play with. Here's my interpretation using this pretty Tilda.

Craftbubble CMLI challenge.

It seems like for ever since I last posted on here...oh it is! I have been so busy, that my card making has been somewhat neglected! This week I set the challenge on the CMLI group. I found this fab photo and have decided to use it as my starting point for inspiration.
It's such a fabulous Autumnal photo. I love the colours and textures, the shades of brown and touches of green, plus that gorgeous shiny conker!
Here's my take on it. I have used a gorgeous house mouse image and coloured it with prisma pencils. For me the only thing to colour house mouse images with!
