Colour Create Challenge - Blue, Tan & Ecru

This is my entry for this weeks Colour Create Challenge - Blue Tan and Ecru..and what colours!! I love them. I'm so pleased how this card turned out...Sugar Nellies 'Daisy:..again!!.. K & Co DP's and bazzill cardstock from stash. I used seed beads on the punched flowers for interest and glitter Daisy's flowers. Sizzix Flourish and Craftworks Card Candy to finish it off. I decorated inside too..but guess what?..I forgot the pic again!!! Happy crafting to all...regards..Jan..x

Ballet Tilda

This DP is by K & Co..and is just lovely with Ballet Tilda. I sparkled the tutu and slippers with Sticklers and added a little bead gem I made..kept it simple for a change..thought I would let the DP's do the talking!!!

Passionate Purple

This is so...Hippy Chick..yes I remember flower power and all that...I used to wear beads and bells and paint flower around my eyes!!! Shopping in BIBA in Kensington High Street..oh god i feel old now...anyway..yes this gorjuss one reminded me of those days. No idea about the DP's I found them in my stash, but I used new charms..a bargan found on Ebay!!!

Cute Little Daisy...again!!

Yes she is having another airing..our Daisy!! She is so sweet and a joy to colour, been using the new prismacolor pencils instead of watercolours and I'm liking them better. I'm not sure about the blue background on this though..think it should have been lime..ummm..

Fushsia Fairy

This is another Stamping Bella stamp that I got from Ebay..she reminded me of Fuchsias so I coloured her that way..she is called Twinkle Fairy but didn't use her twinkles in this. I added some seed beads to the punched flowers for interest and around the card. I love Craftworks Card you can use them loads and now a card looks bare without them!!

May Showers

Not normally a colour I would use, but thought I'd have a change from pink and green!!! I love this image and I used dew drops and gloss accents for the rain and her wellies..oh yes I have new punches too, just love them. Lets hope the weather is nicer for the bank holiday!!!

Hi everyone...this is my entry for the Magnolia Challenge this week. I have used my favorite Tilda and tried to give her a slightly different look by two toning her little jacket. As we had to do a bit of stitching this week, I have faux stitched the edges of the papers. After putting this altogether I realised that my entry last week was also red and green!! (mental note to use different colour next week!!) DG papers are Basic Grey. I have used Glossy Accents on her garland, pockets and shoes. Flowers and pearls from stash. I think I've OD'd on the dew drops though!! lol All comments welcome...regards..Jan..x

Oh her name?.. shes Agnes Ketto from Stampingbella but I think you knew that. I also got Missmatch Ketto and Twinkle Fairy but havent played with them yet.....just thought I'd share her with you...........Jan..x

Papertake Weekly Challenge

This is my entry for this weeks Papertake challenge. I have been dying to use these BG paper for ages. I wanted to make something pink and sugary so the colour and Gorjuss Girl fits the bill nicely. BG papers are Doodlebug from their paper potpourri packs, Cupcake Boutique Assortment. Punched flowers and Craftworks Iced Gems and Greetings. Oh and I decorated inside too but didnt take a pic..doh!!!

Strawberry Creams

They look good enough to eat. Sizzlit die cuts of yummy chocs. I over embellished this for a lush look.

Hot Pink & Gorguss

I like this Gorjuss one and one of my fav colour combos.

Lilac 'Daisy'

Quite pleased with this one, used another sparkly butterfly I got from fellow ebayer. They are very pretty and just fits in fine with my new flourish.

Hi.. feeling a bit under the weather today so thought I would just sit quietly and make a few toppers for ebay...and I also made a card for this weeks Papertake challenge.
