FBF - Elsa

Hello SSD fans! 

A quick post from me today with one of the super sassy Frozen girls, I've made a card using Elsa but there is Anna too. Head on over to the facebook group where you can get both images for free for 24hrs after Samantha has posted them - Link to Facebook group is HERE

Of course I just HAD to glitter up the dress! I used frosty backing papers along with snowflake vellum and glitter card all mat and layered onto silver mirror board. The twine I have used even sparkles too! The snowflake is a button which is just threaded through :) 

There we have it! 
Our last FBF for this year, we will be back on Jan 1st 2016! 

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year! 


SSD The Release Awakens!

I'm sure by now everyone has seen the teaser posts and figured out what the new release from SSD is right?! 

I must say, Lindsay has done an amazing job with images. They are awesome. 
Now, I have to admit, I'm not a Star Wars fan, I'm more Star Trek but my other half is so no doubt all these will get combined in to one picture frame. 

So, along with the new release we also have a blog hop. The list will be at the end of the post so you know where to go next :) 

The image I got to feature is Han Solo. Now, I had no idea so I had to google! 
A pretty CAS card from me as I was struggling big time! 
The paper is Star Wars paper from Etsy and the font is Star Jedi. I think it was from dafont. 
So here's what I got:

As I say, very CAS from me. I do hope to do the other images and redo him too. 
He was coloured using Promarkers. 

So, make sure you follow the blog hop list. You could win the entire new release! 
We also have a party chat and a blog challenge 

Party Chat Link:
Chat: 6:00 PST to 8:00 PST
Blog Challenge Theme: Anything Goes

Good Luck and Have Fun!

MTTC DT - Christmas Animals

Good Morning! 
I hope you are all well on this rain free morning. I've said that now so no doubt it will rain lol.

A new challenge over at My Time To Craft - Link is HERE 
Challenge theme is "Christmas Animals" 

I've made a set of 4 cards using a reindeer! His super cute and is from Drawn With Character 
- Link to store is HERE 
- Link to image is HERE 

The Reindeer has been coloured using promarkers. I've glittered up the antlers too. What christmas card hasn't got a bit of sparkle?! Each card has a different greeting which is a peel off. 

Super quick post from me! 
Enjoy the challenge and see you over there! 


MTTC DT - Let It Snow!

How very apt that it did actually snow in Birmingham, UK on Friday night ready for our challenge  of Let It Snow over at My Time To Craft - Link is HERE 

We want to see snow or snowflakes in your images this time around. 
I used an image out of the Hunky Dory Topper Pads. They are amazing!! 
The wording is wooden wording that I've had for ages and I added a couple of cute little bells to the ribbon bow :)  

Love the little owl and the little mousey hanging off the branch in the top right corner. 

Super quick from me as I'm working.... boooooo! 
Enjoy the challenge! 


FBF - Katniss Sassy on Fire

Afternoon Sassy Fans..

It's Friday so that means a new FBF over at SSD - Link is HERE 
.... and this week's is Katniss Sassy on Fire 

I've never seen the Hunger Games films, I've read the books but I refuse to watch the films.
Yet I generally love books that are films. Give me the Shadowhunters and Mortal Instruments any day! 

Anyhow's, I went with a complete colour change to show how it looks when it's not on fire lol 

A CAS card too with a greeting a couple of gems. She's been coloured with Spectrum Noir pens. 

Super quick from me. 
See ya! 

CF DT - Fairy Ink

Eeeeek! I love the image I've used for this card!! 
Let's start the post off properly! 

Good Morning! 
I hope you are all well wherever you are around the world. 

This week we are sponsored by the awesome Faery Ink - Link to shop HERE 
over at Creative Fingers - Link is HERE 
 As always the theme is "Anything Goes" 
This challenge will be our last for 2015 and will last 2 weeks. 

So here's what I come up with...

I LOVE this image!!! Image is called Holiday Tree Destiny - Link is HERE
She is soooo super cute! I knew straight away that I would be using her for my little cousin's Christmas card. Abigail is not very girly so I decided to colour her blue. The blonde hair represents Abigail too. I have used a 6x6 paper sheet and an embossed card with swirls on the background which have both been layered on to grey and cyan coloured card. The ribbon is from IKEA and it's got the wire running around the edge so it's easy manipulated. She has been coloured using Promarkers. 

Here's a few more pics...

There you have it! I really enjoyed making this card. Have fun with the challenge! 

I am also entering this into the following challenges : 

1. Crafty Catz - Shades of Blue
2. Star Stampz - All About Girls
3. Faery Ink FB Group - Winter Wonderland

Thanks for popping by! 


FBF - Little Honey Pocahontas


Super quick post from me today with this weeks Flash Back Friday image which is Little Pocahontas.
She is FREE for 24 hours on the Facebook group - Link is HERE  

I wanted to do the native American look with her skin tone. I'm not completely happy with it but still, I like it. I used a hint of teal to brighten the card up and used chevron paper for the background. 

Super quick from me, post your finished creations on the group :) 


MTTC DT - Quilt It!


A brand new challenge over at My Time To Craft today - Link is HERE 

This fortnights challenge is 

"Quilt It!" 

We want to see anything quilted on your projects, you could do ready made papers or make your own. 
Here's what I've come up with

I've actually made a christmas card!! The topper is from the Cute Christmas Pad by Hunkydory. The quilted paper I have had this for ages!!! Added the brad and ribbon, which was from Next. Love next ribbon. Rather than using a greeting printed off the pc, I decided to use a wooden wording. I think it works. 

Anyhow's, I hope to see you join the challenge :)

Monday Greetings DT - Anything Goes

Hello everyone! 

I new challenge over at Monday Greetings on the OutLawz today - Link is HERE 
Our new challenge is "Anything Goes!" 
We are sponsored by Crafty Sentiments - Link to store is HERE 
I got to use the super cute Jason and Eve - Link is HERE

I have used a little play on words with the greeting. I thought it was quite appropriate with the little boy and girl :) 

Think I'm going through a chevron phase! Seem to be using a lot of this card at the mo. This time I went with a hint of yellow rather than blue tho. Infact, I think I'd already coloured the image in so that was pretty simple to make. I've used a grey and white spotty paper behind the image to tie in with this hair and trousers. Had to get some buttons in there too! And the play of words with the greeting made me chuckle. 

Here's a few more pics
Hope to see you join in the challenge :) 


CWWC DT - Distress it


Super quick post from me as it's my Nephew's Christening today! Eeeek! 
So a brand new challenge over at Crafting When We Can today - Link is HERE 
We are sponsored by the awesome Oddball Art Co. - Link to store is HERE 
And our challenge is "Distress it!" 

I've used Big Eye Eve Has Something To Say - Link is HERE 
And I tried to stick to the red, blue and black colour combo, which is reflected in the buttons and colours used on the image itself. The sentiment has been printed off the pc. To distress my card, I roughed up the edges of the paper and cards. You can use various tools, I like to use a craft knife tho.

As I say, Super quick from me. Hope you enjoy your Sunday and look forward to seeing your creations on the blog! :) 


MTTC DT - Inspired by The Beatles

Good Morning! 

Another fun filled challenge over at My Time To Craft this fortnight!! - Link is HERE 
Our challenge is 

"Inspired by The Beatles" 

It's up to you how you interpret the theme. 
I went for something a little quirky and used and SBS image - Link to store is HERE 

I mainly wanted to stick to a couple of colours and the red and blue sits well together. I've used 3 different types of patterned papers to add layers. The buttons and twine are added to the chevron strip with the greeting being printed off the pc. The image I've used is ASH from Jude and the Rockers range by Rachel Sharp. I do love these images! I've got the whole set so there maybe more cards made in the same colour schemes :) 

Looking forward to see how everyone makes something with the theme :) 



Creative Fingers DT - The East Wind

Good Morning! 

A brand new challenge for you over at Creative Fingers today - Link is HERE 
As always it's anything goes but this challenge we are sponsored by The East Wind - Link to store is HERE 
I got to use the awesome Lucy Loo mirrorball earring and skull bag - Link is HERE
For something different, I did her near enough "normal" Although I have re-done her looking funky! 

Card is A5 in size with the use of 3 different papers. I had to get a bow in there somewhere too! ;) 
Lucy Loo has been coloured using promarkers. I did use a tombow pen to go over her hair to add some depth. I've not added a greeting as I may change the use for this card so left it blank. 

Hope you enjoy the other DT creations :)

Good Morning! 

We have a brand new challenge over at Dare To Be Sassy Thursday this week - Link is HERE

And I've coloured her in black and orange - something completely different to her usual look of blueish skin and red hair! EEEKKK!!! 

I'm actually really pleased with the way this card turned out, especially only using 2/3 colours. I had to colour her up again tho after in correct colours. She may make an appearance next week along with Jack, who know's ;) 
She's been coloured completely with Promarkers.
The silver spider web card I've had for ages and never used it! Least it's come in handy :)

Monday Greetings DT - Use a Flower and/or Brad


A little late posting this as I thought I'd done it ready to post but obviously not! 

Anyhow's, this weeks challenge over at Monday Greetings is "Use a flower and/or brads" - Link is HERE 
We are sponsored by the awesome Rick St Dennis for this week - Link to store is HERE 
I got to use the image Miss Razz L. Dazzle - Link is HERE

I went with slightly brighter colours for this to make it a little more bold and in your face lol. As soon as I coloured her up my mom went "I'll have that for my friend" hahaha. She does like to get in there quick! I was going to use a brad on my bow but I couldn't find the pot until after I'd stuck the bow down and there was the pot of brads. Always the way! She's been coloured using Promarkers.

Hope to see you join in the fun! 


DTBS DT - Tic Tac Toe


A new challenge over at Dare To Be Sassy today which is Tic Tac Toe - Link is HERE 

So, we would like you to use any 3 in a row off the board - Board is below.
I went for the top line of Flower, Spider/spider Web, Spooky Fence. 

 Here's what I've come up with, 

Using Wicked Honey - Image is HERE 
I've layered her on to silver spider web card, die cut a fence out and added flowers where I've twisted the stems up. Wicked Honey has been coloured using Promarkers on Linen effect card. I love the effect you get. Sentiment was off line but I think it's prefect for a little witch :)
The black spider web in the corner is also die cut.

Hope to all those "wicked" creations on the blog ;) 


Monday Greetings DT - Autumnal colours and twine

Ooops! In the event of my birthday yesterday, I completely forgot my blog post! Eeeek! 
Anyways, a little later but better than never :) 

So, this weeks challenge at Monday Greetings is "Autumnal Colours & Twine" - Link is HERE
This week we've had TWO sponsors - Scribbles Designs - Link to store is HERE 
And Melonheadz - Link to Store is HERE 
I struggle with autumn colours so had a little bit of help as I followed this 

Do you have trouble picking out the right color for your home? Let me help, I'm a certified color specialist! Sensibly Chic Designs for Life 704-608-9424:  

So, with the help of the picture, I came up with these two cards. 

First one up is Scribbles Designs and I've used Maple Leaf - Link to image is HERE
Image has been coloured using Promarkers. Greeting is printed off the computer.

Second card up is Melonheadz using Snowman Bobbleheadz - Link to image is HERE 
I used two of the set, added a heart in between and printed the sentiment off the pc. Images again have been coloured using Promarkers. 

A couple of CAS cards from me. I do love this style although sometimes I want to add more lol. 
Hope to see you join in with us! :) 


CWWC DT - Whimsical With Wings

Good Morning! 

I was AWOL for the last challenge, my apologies! I didn't realise the date as it was my Dad's 60th Birthday weekend so most things went out the window that weekend. 

Anyhow's, on to the new challenge over at Crafting When We Can - Link is HERE 
The new challenge is "Whimsical With Wings" 
We are sponsored by the awesome Aurora Wings - Link to shop is HERE

I was lucky enough to use the super cute Honey Bee Sprite - Link is HERE 
Here's what I've come up with, 

The card itself is an 8" by 8", boy did I print the image way too big!! But I think it works. I coloured the little dude in with Spectrum Noir Pens and used a swirly embossed background. Sentiment is printed off the pc. 

Hope to see you stop by the blog and play along :) 


MTTC DT - Autumn Colours

Good Morning! 

Wow, some great work by the DT for last challenge and awesome work by you guys too! 
Now it's onto another challenge for 2 weeks over at MTTC - Link is HERE 
This challenge is "Autumn Colours" 

Now, I do admit that I was struggling for colours with this, so I went onto Pinterest and found this super stunning colour combo. I tried to stick as close to it as possible... 

beautiful birds!!...love these colors. MIght use these colors to decorate my apartment:  

So, I used a Saturated Canary image which I haven't used in aggggeeesssss! 
Here's what I've got: 

The image is called Ellie's Birthday.
I have coloured her in with promarkers and a Tombow pen to add some definition to her hair. The arrows are paperclips from IKEA. I adore them and perfect for this card to match her jumper. For something different too, I printed the sentiment in vellum and layered it over the image and attached the bow & button. Of course, with some twine involved ;) 

I must admit, I'm very happy with the end result. Turned out much better than expected! 
Hope to see you stop by the blog with all those autumnal coloured creations :) 

Something New

Good Morning..  Hope you all had a great christmas & fab new year too.  We are finally back with a new challenge over at My Time ...
