Anything Goes at Cute Card Thursday

We have another Anything Goes challenge at Cute Card Thursday this week, so this week I have decided to indulge in my 'thing' for Lawn Fawn stamps.

I don't know what it is about these little stamps, they just seem to make me happy, and they are perfect for colouring when you don't want anything to complicated.

This is a very rare kinetic card for me - it's a shaker with sequins for snow and also the bauble moves and can be removed and used as a decoration next year.

So that;s my little card for today.

Hope you will come and join us over at Cute Card Thursday.

Cute Card Thursday - Anything oes

We have a new challenge over at Cute Card Thursday and this week the theme is Anything Goes.

So I decided to go with another Christmas card using a lovely stamp set from the Leonie Pujol range.

My starting point was Blue Centura pearl card which I embossed with a snowflake folder and then sanded to reveal the white snowflakes.

I then stamped each of the elements on to Sheena card and coloured them with lovely bright colours before attaching them to my main card using a generous dollop of silicone glue!

Spectrum Noirs used:
CG2, CG1, DR3, EB6, EB2, CT3, GT3, BT7, TB7, CT4

So that's my card for today. Hope you will come and join us over at Cute Card Thursday this week. We love to see your creations.

Bye for now.

Festive Colours at Cute Card Thursday

So it's time for another challenge at Cute Card Thursday, and once again we are sponsored by one of our regular Sponsors - All Dressed Up.

Our theme this week is Festive Colours, so I have stuck to mostly red and green on my card, and printers a lovely big image to go on an 8 x 8 card.

I had a lovely time colouring this little  lady in with my Spectrum Noirs, and of course I had to add a touch of sparkle to her fairy wings!

I have teamed her up with some of my Christmas digital papers from NitWits and a lovely frame die from Tonic...oh and I even found a few old Candy Dots to finish off the decoration!

We can't wait to see what lovely things you will make so don't forget to come and join us over at Cute Card Thursday.

See you there!

Anything but Christmas at Fab n Funky.

Hi there,

It's time for the final challenge of the year over at Fab n Funky and this week our theme is Anything but Christmas, sponsored by Bugaboo.

So, for my card I have kept things bright and simple using this gorgeous ladybird image.

These were actually designed as get well cards and one of them was sent to someone with very poor eyesight, so I thought that the bold image and bright colours would do just the trick.

I have coloured both images with my Spectrum Noirs and added  some lovely Lily of the Valley sentiments below.

So that's my offering for today - very simple but such fun to colour!

I hope you will come and join us over at Fab n Funky. Look forward to seeing you there.

It's a dog's life.......

 Hi there. I am back with a card for another challenge at Colour Crazy where, as always the them is Anything Goes, as long as you do some colouring.

This week we are sponsored by Dr Digi  and I have used this comical image called Sofa So Good because it reminds me very much of my parent's dogs who do actually have their very own sofa!
I have coloured in the whole image using my Spectrum Noirs pens and I found that my go to colours of GB8, 9 and 10 were perfect colours for the dog, whilst the shabby sofa look was aceived using DG2, YG1 and YG2.

I used some antique linen  to take away the whiteness of the card and used my trusty dotty stamp to add a bit of interest.

I hope you like my card for today, where I have stepped away from Christmas for just a bit!

Hope you can come and join us at Colour Crazy.
