Just add flowers at Come and Get it.

A second card up today this one for the Come and Get it Challenge Blog.

This weeks challenge is "Add Flowers" and I have used the gorgeous Kidz Flower Basket from Bugaboo stamps which you can get here.

Unfortunately my photo hasn't worked real well on this one due to too many overcast and windy days but you get the gist...

Hope you can come join in here

Happy crafting

Sketch #474

Hi popping in with some exciting news today.... I am now a part of the Sketch Saturday Design Team.

I love using sketches for my cards so this is going to be a great fit for me.

Today I am sharing my first project for the Sketch #474 Challenge which runs all this week. You can find the challenge here and here are the requirements for the challenge..

It is the 5th Saturday so that means... Pick ANY sketch 215-460 this week!  Please include an image of the sketch you chose in your post!

The challenge is also sponsored by the Paper Nest Dolls so was a double win for me this week. 

I used Sketch # 456 for my card 

and used the image "Letters to the North Pole" which you can find here

Hope you can come and join in the fun over at the Sketch Saturday blog and maybe pick yourself up some great prizes.

Add 2 Desginer Papers

This weeks challenge is up at the Come and Get It Challenge Blog and this week we are after entries with 2 designer papers.

This week polkadoodles is kindly sponsoring us and as I already have a love of their gorgeous images my hardest thing was picking just 1 of their images for this challenge...

I have chosen the sweet little Winnie Sharing is Caring which you can get here or as part of the bundle like I did here

I have paired her with some paper from a Kaisercraft 6x6 pad I had (not sure which one now it was an older one) and some sweet and simple roses. I have matted each layer with white to make the layers pop and inked all the edges with brown distress ink.

Hope you like her and make sure to pop over to the Come and Get It Challenge Blog and add an entry

Happy Crafting...

Miss Minnesota

Hi popping in today with a card I have made using the adorable Miss Minnesota from Simply B Stamps.

I have coloured her with my copics in a monochrome blue scheme which has given her a really wintery feel and finished her of with some sparkly lace border sticker and blue snowflake paper.

This just goes to show that even though these images are based on the state in the US they can still be used for other occasions.. this one will go as a Christmas card this year..

Thanks for looking
Happy Crafting....

Sharing a card today I have made with the super amazing Texas State Girl from Simply B Stamps.....

I have had this one coloured for a while but when Betty said she wanted some inspiration with her 50 State Girls I knew straight away I wanted to get her onto a card.

With just a few brown and blue accents I have turned her into the perfect card for someone who isn't into the florally pastel cards and I really enjoyed doing something a bit simpler and laid back with this one, I think it really makes the image just pop out.

Anyway till next time happy crafting....

Get Creative Challenge #60 - CAS

A new challenge is over at the Get Creative Challenge Blog and the theme this month is CAS, or Clean and Simple for those not in the know....

The idea behind a CAS card is that the image is the center of attention and the focus of the card with very few embellishments.. this challenge I got to play with the very cool pirate ship from Drawn by Krista... and I have made a cute little boy card by adding a sentiment that came with a pirate image I already owned by Simply B Stamps..

Then I added a couple of bits of washi tape with a zig zag pattern and viola a CAS card.

I know a lot of people get scared of CAS cards but why not give it a go and come join us  over on the challenge..

Till then Happy crafting...
