Hi everyone.
I've treated myself to a little colouring time today! I have made a card using the freebie image from Tiddly Inks which I've coloured in with Copics, Promarkers and Polychrono pencils.
Hope you like her.

Hi everyone.
I'm here today with my DT make for Crafting for all Seasons. Sadly, this will be our last challenge as our ladies are moving on to pastures new. It's been an absolute pleasure being part of this team and I wish all my teamies the very best for the future.
Our sponsor for this challenge is That Craft Place and I have used "Fairy" for my card. I wasfeeling a bit adventurous with my colours so went for orange! I think it works?!
I've made a simple background using papers from Nitwits "Harvest Delights" collection and embellished with a few flat-backed pearls.
Please come over and join us for this, our final challenge. And thank you all for your support!

Hi everyone.
I'm not a happy bunny at all! Full of cold which I've had since last Friday, thanks for sharing hubby! So my card is so not up to my usual standard, so sorry! And to top all that, I've coloured the rainbow upside down! I'll laugh about it one day....
Anyway, it's new challenge time at The Crafter's Cafe and the theme this week is "At the Movies". We have two sponsors:

The image I have used is called "Hearts and rainbows" from SLS Lines, my inspiration being The Wizard of Oz.....Somewhere Over The Rainbow! One of my favourite films of all time. A very CAS card from me because it's all I could manage whilst feeling very sorry for myself!
Now it's over to you...."At the Movies"!

Hi everyone!
Today's card is my mid-month inspiration for Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra, the challenge as always is "Anything Goes".
No colouring this time, because I'm full of cold and can't really see through streaming eyes.
So I've made a criss-cross card using papers from Michele R Designs. This collection is called "Santa's Coming", and they are gorgeous! I've added a frame which I picked up in the sale at Hobbycraft a few weeks ago, distressed with matte cream paint, and a die-cut snowflake embellished with flat back pearls. 
That's all from me. I'm off now for a hot bath and may be a hot toddy before bed!

Hi everyone.
There is a GDT call out at Saturated Canary, details here.
I have made a little wall hanging using "Traveler", coloured in with Copics, and fussy cut. The papers used are digipapers from "Digital Stories"; I have used "Distressed Wood and "Old Maps".
The little framed quote is courtesy of the great JR Tolkein!, and I couldn't resist the addition of the little wooden camper van!
Good Luck to all who enter. Closing date 19th June.

Hi everyone.
I'm here today with my DT card for The Crafter's Cafe where the theme this week is "School's Out or Graduation".
Our sponsors this week are Beansie Doodles and Lacy Sunshine and I have used "Zilpha's Love Note" from Beansie Doodles, coloured in with Copics. I am just about getting straight and sorting all my craft stuff out, having been thrown out of my craftroom but I'm still trying to use up things I re-discover. Hence, backing paper is a scrap I found, but the weird thing is, I knew I had the mortar-board die-cut lying around somewhere, and I found it straight away in all the mess! Amazing!

So now it's over to you...."School's Out or Graduation"...

Hi everyone.
I'm here today with my DT card for the new monthly challenge over at Crafty Hazel Nuts Christmas Challenge Extra where the challenge as always is ANYTHING GOES!
Bugaboo DigiStamps is our regular sponsor and I have used "Kidz Christmas Boy and his Dog" to make my card. I've layered up some Christmasy papers from my stash and used a few coordinating buttons to finish the card off.
Hope you come over and join in the fun!
