Birthday Weirdo!


Good morning! Hope your week is going well...mine is going...fast! Had a crazy busy week so far, still trying to catch up with myself, so I'll keep this short! Here's my DT card for our new challenge at Creative Moments, the optional theme this time is 'Spring colours'. My card doesn't have a spring theme at all, but for me green and yellow are the colour of spring...I was allowed to choose an image from Dr Digi, one of our fab sponsors this fortnight (please click here to visit the main challenge blog for full details of sponsors)...so here here he is...Birthday-Bot, all coloured up with my copics then generously coated with glossy accents...perfect card for one of my brothers who is a weirdo...still love him though!
Sorry I haven't been around much this week, been so busy with family visiting, will catch up soon!
Thanks for looking!

Mother's Day or for a special lady

Good morning, the theme for this week's challenge at Sweet Stampin' is 'Mother's Day' or 'special lady'....here's my DT card. Embossed background with die cut heart, embossed using a different ef and re-inserted into the aperture. Punched border, diecut bow and butterfly. The vellum flowers are stamped and embossed with white detail ep, then coloured on the reverse with a yellow copic, fussy cut shaped with a ball tool and then layered together. I've added some tiny pearls to the centres. 
Please hop over to Sweet Stampin' Challenge blog to see the beautiful creations my teamies have made to inspire you. We'd love to have you join us this week, so make something lovely for your Mum (or another wonderful lady!) and join the fun...just remember to include some stamping.
Thanks for visiting, have a super weekend.

It looks beautiful on you...


Hi, a quick post from me with a fairly quick card to share, couldn't resist this little cutie from Mo, and couldn't wait to colour her! Simple layered L/O with some punched hearts. Sentiment stamps from Concord & 9th-   and that's about it!
Thanks for visiting!

Feeling blue?

OOPS! Just realised this card didn't post on Wednesday! It's for the
  new challenge at Creative Moments , the optional theme is 'Winter Blues'...include some blue in your design, this fortnight we have 2 lovely sponsors

I was given a sweet image from Mari Designs, available here. He's such a sweetie with that sad innocent face.  He's coloured with copics and fussy cut. My card design is a one I haven't tried before, a swing step card. Papers from my stash...they look more blue IRL! I added a die cut fence and some punched daisies.  Well it's blue if not very wintery!!!
Thanks for looking, have a great weekend!

Pop it up!


There's a new challenge with a fun theme starting over at Southern Girls..."Pop it up with foam"...sponsored by Ppinky Dolls



My sweet image, Marilou is courtesy of Ppinky Dolls. She's coloured with copics and die cut into a circle. I added a few die cuts, which as you can see from the deep blue shadows (it was a gorgeous sunny day!) are popped up on foam! Hope you're tempted to play along with this lovely easy challenge.

Rock on!


Back again with my 3rd card today (phew!). It's my turn to host the challenge at Fab 'n' Funky this week...which means I get to pick the theme :)) and as we're sponsored by the fabulous Kenny K this week it was an easy choice for me ...Music or inspired by a song, as I love their wonderful Rock images, and I have several of them :), I couldn't decide which one I liked the most...so I made a whole rock band! I used: Metal DrummerVikki Lee ViciousRock DudeGroove Dude and Star. coloured them all with copics, fussy cut and arranged them on my step card 'stage'. I added the two chip board shapes, covered with black glitter, to finish. I so enjoyed colouring these fantastic characters!
There's plenty more inspiration from my lovely teamies to be seen by clicking here, and I'll be so happy if you chose to play along with my challenge this week.
Thank you so much for visiting today, hope you like something you've seen!!
