It's been a while....

Well hello! 
Welcome back to my little place in blogland. It's been a while! 
Had no PC from like May, Got a new one now tho but been super busy over Christmas. 

So, I'm back to share with you my DT make for Mt Time To Craft - Link is HERE 

The theme is..... Something New
 Now I've gone down the new baby route, only because I wanted to make a car seat. 




They are pretty easy to make. Just follow a template, it's the assembly bit that is a pain! 
Anyways, I hope you can stop by the blog and play along.
Enjoy! 
Jo :)

The backing paper is out of two different paper pads from Poundland! 
They are lovely! 
Added some silver washi tape with the card candi too. Adds a bit of definition :)

MTTC - Sketch

Good Morning! 
Another Saturday and time for another challenge over at My Time To Craft - Link is HERE
This fortnight's challenge is a sketch! By meeeee..... :) 


Here's what I'm come up with... 
I used a Faery Ink girl on this card ;) 

She has been coloured using Spectrum Noir pens in greens and pinks. 
Originally, her hair was going to be green but I changed my mind. I like the pink. 
The "awesome" is wooden wording. 
Added the pearls & ribbon for a finishing touch :) 
 
Hope you enjoy the sketch! 
 jo ;)

CWWC DT - Julia Spiri

Good Morning! 
Can't you tell it's bank holiday.... yep it's raining!! 
 
We have a brand new challenge over at Crafting When We Can today - Link is HERE 
The challenge  for this fortnight is 
"Add Flowers" 

And we are sponsored by Julia Spiri - Link is HERE 
I was able to use the image Birds & Hair - Link is HERE


I am trying something different with this card. I had to cut a frame down for a lego frame that I've made and the excess just so happens to for an A5 card. So I thought I'd put it to some use :) 
I have left the image light with the hints of purple and green and added the flowers and gems along the edge. 
I like the finished product. I think it's quite qwirky :) 

Enjoy the challenge.. remember to add those flowers! :)

Creative Fingers DT - Beccy's Place

Good Morning! 

How are you lovely people?! 
A new challenge over at Creative Fingers today - Link is HERE
As always it's Anything Goes and again for this challenge we have Beccy's Place as our sponsor - Link is HERE
They are the most lovely images! 
I got to work with Old Pump - Link is HERE


For a change I decided to colour the image in with pencils. 
I thought this would add a subtleness to the image with the card being CAS. 
After finishing the image, I'm unsure whether I like it! I know I will end up colouring it in again with Promarkers or Spectrum Noir pens! 

Anyways, enjoy the challenge! :)

Hello! 

Back with you for another new challenge over at  Dare To Be Sassy Thursday - Link is HERE
Our theme is "Tic-Tac-Toe" 

So here is the board. You can use any line as long as it is a line: 


I've gone with - Ribbon or lace / Flowers / Die cut


I wanted to colour this image which is Sugar Skull Portrait - Link is HERE - in pastel colours to show that sugar skull images can be soft and pretty and feminine :) 
I've actually coloured this image in using pencils. No specific make either just pencils. 
I liked how it turned out tho, really soft. I also used two circle die cuts behind the image to add definition :) 

There we have it. 
Enjoy the theme :)

Crafting When We Can - Birthday

Good Morning! 

Super quick post today. 
We have a brand new challenge over at Crafting When We Can today - Link is HERE 
The challenge  for this fortnight is 

"Birthday" 

I got to use this amazing image which is called Willow - Link is HERE
I did start off with the image being greys, then added a red. I think the red pops. 
I also wanted a CAS layout to show off the image. 


I think the red hair really shouts at you. I've used black glitter card for the background too. 
And look, not a button or piece of twine in sight! ;) 

Thanks for popping by! 
Enjoy the challenge :)

MTTC DT - Girlie

Morning! 

What a horrible wet day! 
Bad day for me today, I have to go and buy a new die cutting machine as my other one broke! 
This is the second one I've had in two years and they've both broken with the same fault :( 

Anyways, on to a new challenge over at My Time To Craft - Link is HERE 
This challenge we want to see "Girlie" - doesn't have to be pink!! 

Although, I've gone with pink only 'cos it was on the order ;) 
I've used a super cute Lili Of The Valley square topper card.


The papers are a digital download from Etsy. I do love a spotty paper! 
Added some glittery washi tape, gems, buttons, bows and "Abby" is die cut along with the "1" on the pram. 
No colouring involved in this creation! 

I hope you all play along with the challenge. 
I'm off to buy a new machine! *insert crying face*

Enjoy!

SSD Sponsorship - Anything Goes

Good Morning! 

I've a couple of cards to show you today for the Sassy Studio Sponsorship. 

First up is an image I coloured ages ago! I loved her as soon as I seen her. 
And I thought the sentiment was perfect :) 
This is for sponsor of blog A Beautiful Mess - Link is HERE


The papers are a digital download from Etsy, the sentiment is printed from the pc and Catwomen has been coloured using Spectrum Noir pens. She has also been completely cut out. Had to get a bit of glitter and ribbon in there ;) 

Next up is a super fun card for Crafting with Friends - Link is HERE
I used Mad Hatter Buttercream Babe, again, I'd had her coloured up for ages. 
I went with a little bit of an outside the lines idea with this. 
I like it tho! LOL 


She's been coloured up using promarkers in mad hatter ish colours. 
The papers matched perfectly I think, then I am biased as I love this card! 
The little wooden wording sets the whole lot off I think :) :) 

Thanks for popping by, we hope you'll enjoy the challenges and inspiration from the DT

MTTC DT - Flowers

Good Morning! 

It's Saturday and I'm off to work.... booooo! 
But before I leave, here's my post for the new Challenge over at My Time To Craft - Link is HERE 
This week we want to see "Flowers" 
This should be your main image :) 

I'm showing you something different today as it's not a card. 


This is a box I made for Mothers Day for a friend at work to give to her daughter from the boys. 
The image is a "sunflower" digi image from Make It Crafty - Link is HERE 
You'll see in the next lot of pics that the sunflowers have been layered. I cut and coloured the specific bits that I wanted to layer and cut them out. I think there's 5 or 6 layers. 
The whole image and quote is in a 23cm by 23cm white IKEA frame.




Lots of big pictures! I had to get the detail in to show you :) 
Thanks for popping by! 
Enjoy the challenge :)
