MTTC DT - Alice In Wonderland

Good Morning! 

An awesome challenge theme for you over at My Time To Craft this fortnight with the theme of 
"Alice In Wonderland" - Link is HERE 

I have to confess that I'm a little to blame for some of the DT buying extra Alice themed images... I was only being helpful! :-D :-D

Anyhows, I've used a couple of images from Some Odd Girl - Link to store is HERE 
I've had them coloured up for a while and planned to do two cards with them until my lovely friend stepped in and said "how am I going to make a wedding card based on Alice in Wonderland using cadbury purple?" Leave it with me! So here's what I got... 

Even the font is Alice themed Font! it's from DaFont.com I think. 
The images used are Alice Mae - Link is HERE
and Mad Hatter Kody - Link is HERE

Safe to say that both my friend and customer loved it! 

Can not wait to see all your Alice creations! 



SSD Sponsorship - Pirates and Princesses


A quick post from me this afternoon with a card for the sponsorship over at Incy Wincy Designs - Link is HERE 

The challenge theme is 
"Pirates and Princesses" 

Of course I've gone with Elsa!  Link to image is HERE
Although I nearly went with Rapunzel as I was watching Tangled at the time. 

Ellie LOVES Frozen so this is her card for her 8th Birthday which is next week. The background is embossed with a swirl folder and a snow folder. All the little snowflakes are punched out too. "Ellie" and the "8" are die-cuts along with the bigger snowflake. I am ummming and arrring whether to glitter up her dress, I know I will end up doing it. Who doesn't love a bit of glitter right?! 

I've decided, she needs a glittery dress! 

I would like to enter this into the following challenges: 

1. Eureka Stamps - Monochrome 
2. Artistic Inspirations - Anything Goes With A Twist Of Magic 

Thank you for popping by!


Monday Greetings DT - Christmas

Good Morning! 

The dreaded "C" word..... Christmas! 
I still haven't really done any! LOL 

Anyways, this is the new Monday Greetings Challenge over at The OutLawz - Link is HERE
This week we are sponsored by Decosse's Dynamite Doodles - Link is HERE 

I got to play with a sentiment set which is called White Christmas and used the papers called Familiar Refrain. So, here's what I got : 

I've die cut out a black glittery lamppost and added some ribbon. I CAS card from me again. I may add a few more bits to it later one too. 

Hope to see you join us over at the Outlawz :) 


Creative Fingers DT - Aurora Wings

Good Morning! 

Another friday so another Anything Goes challenge over at Creative Fingers - Link is HERE 
This week we are sponsored by Aurora Wings - Link to store is HERE 
I was lucky enough to use the image Miyabi - Link to image is HERE 

Here's what I came up with 

I very rarely say this but I love this card! I had so much fun colouring in the image. The papers are from a lace effect paper pack by docrafts I think it is. I wanted to leave the card CAS but use darker colours. The blue matches her hair perfectly. I did want the face to be slightly lighter but I don't mind that it's a little darker. No greeting as I'm still deciding what to do with it :) 

I do hope you can stop by the blog and join in with the anything goes theme :) 


CWWC DT - Sketch

Good Morning! 

A new challenge over at Crafting When We Can today - Link is HERE 
Our new challenge is a Sketch! I do love sketch challenges! 

What did you all think of the blog hop? 
There were some pretty cool cards made by the DT. I enjoyed going to visit all the blogs :)  

So, We are sponsored by Robyn's Fetish - Link to store is HERE 
I got to use the super cute image of The Mittens - Link is HERE 
Here's the sketch : 

And here's what I've come up with...

I decided to go with red and white as I love this for Christmas cards. This is only the second or third one I've made! EEEEKKK! I really need to start them! 
The image has been coloured in using promarkers. The background itself is embossed and the ribbon is from Next. You get 3 on a spool. Not bad really! 

Here's some more pics... 

I'll definitely be using this image again! 
Hope to see you all stop by the blog :) 


SSD Sponsorship - Banners


Today SSD is sponsoring Paper A La Mode over at The OutLawz - Link is HERE 
The current challenge is to use a banner. I've gone with someat a little different then your normal conventional banner so to speak. 

Thought I'd colour the image in slightly different this time round as I usually do her red dress and black gloves so opted for green and a black background. Think it works. The sentiment I had printed for ages. Now the banners are a die cut with each end being pointed but I decided to cut one up to layer them up. Added a bit of card candi to make them look like buttons. The image has been coloured using Promarkers too :) 

Really enjoyed making this CAS card with a darker background than I usually do! 

MTTC DT - Owls

Good Morning! 

Today we have a brand new challenge over at My Time To Craft - Link is HERE
This fortnights challenge is 


Perfect as I had a thank you card to make with owls on it! 


The image I've had for ages and it's a Whiff Of Joy image which is perfect for a thank you card. An act of Kindness, although I'd probably be the one at the bottom of the tree on my bum! hahaha 
The image itself has been coloured using Promarkers. I wanted to add a slight background too so did the dots lol 

 Do pop by the blog to show us your owl creations :) 


Creative Fingers DT - Rick St Dennis

Good Morning! 

Another anything goes challenge over at Creative Fingers - Link is HERE
This week we are sponsored by the fabulous Rick St Dennis - Link to Etsy Store HERE 
I got to play with the delightful image called "Ziegfeld Girl"
She reminded my of art deco so this is what I went with. I also decided on patterned paper and not many layers. Keep it simple.

The swirls on her dress are coloured with a glitter pen to make them stand out a little more. The papers are art deco papers from a Docrafts pack. I managed to make the colours up perfectly too! :) 

When my pc decides to do what it's meant too, I'll post a close up pic of the glittered swirls. 
Hope to see you all pop by the blog. What's easier than an "anything goes" challenge right?!
