Everything that you can see from this card is sourced my Polkadoodles Pretty Tough CD which has been a gem of a purchase for me since I bought it when it first came out as it rally has been my 'go to' source for anything boyish.
I have coloured him in with y Spectrum Noirs this time and tried to make sure that I grounded him as he looked like he was flying before I put the grass in!
Thanks for visiting me today.

Having tried unsuccessfully to learn to double crochet, magic ring, increase and decrease from a book, I resorted to You Tube and hey presto, it all fell in to place…even though I am left handed and the videos are for right handers.
Finally, out came the Promarker Trias to do some fine faux stitching around the edges.
I hope my little efforts have brought a smile to your face - even if it is just to laugh at my dodgy chick!
As usual though, lots of lovely challenges to enter so here goes:
Thanks for stopping by today and have a great weekend.

My MIL loves to knit and her favourite flowers are poppies……so I knew I had to use this stamp for her.
I made an 8 x 8 card and actually got out one of my embossing folders (which is a rarity for me!) to make the background on gorgeous centura pearl card.
I have coloured the image in with my Speccies and the little labels that you see are from Lili of the Valley.
Time to enter a few challenges now so here goes:
Well I am off now to as my cooker buzzer is beeping and a lovely leg of lamb and roasties awaits me…….mmmmmmmmm.

This one is a really sweet Besties digi that I thought would really suit someone I know so I just had to have the image to add to my collection.
I recently joined an on line class with Kit and Clowder to learn a bit more about face and hair colouring. So far I have only managed to find time to do one lesson which focussed on colouring the face but I learned some really interesting stuff about form, shadow and variation of colours which I have tried to put in to practise. As a result the face has come out a bit brighter than my usual pasty looking people but I am quite pleased how it came out. Still desperately need to nail that hair though!
Anyhow - the rest of the image I coloured to match my chosen digital papers which are from the Nitwits Eggstra Special set, a particular favourite of mine for Spring time cards, and I have finished off with a bit of faux stitching.
Of course I couldn't let all those lovely Easter and Spring themed challenges pass me by, so here comes the list:
Well that's me done for today. Off to enjoy the rest of the sunshine that today has to offer and maybe a little bit of crafting too.
Thanks for visiting today.

So that was the inspiration for this card - something you would give to someone who had done something special for you, but made in a way that would suit lots of tastes. I hope I hit the mark!
The lovely stamp is from Stamp Addicts and, when I stamped and coloured it I just knew I wanted to frame it with lots of lovely ribbon, and so the rosette came to be.
It's a little bit time consuming, but really easy to make. I simply cut out some circles from thick card and the applied little strips of super sticky tape all around the edges. It's then simply a case of pressing down the ribbon in a pleat fashion - or whatever suits, and then layering everything up with thick sticky pads.
Anyway, I hope you like it :-)
Finally, here are the challenges I would like to enter today….
