Friday Sketchers Challenge #58

Hi guys..yes I would think that as I'm at home all day at the moment that I would be out there enjoying the sunshine, the thing is, I got a bit toasty yesterday so thought I would have a break and do some cards..I trawled 'Blog World' and came across Friday Sketchers Challenge and as it was a fab sketch I had to have ago...

.... Do go and have a look at the great DT's cards. I used a Gorjuss one and I thought she went well with the DP's which are Basic Grey Wisteria..just loving these..I coloured her with primas pencils and sansodor and tried to give her a 'tied dyed' look!!! Thought I would let the papers speak for themselves and kept it simple..just added some punched flowers with white cherry blossoms in the middle and a few dew drops. I touched up her boots with Glossy Accents and gave her some bling in her hair.
Hope you all are keeping cool!!

Stamping for the Weekend Challenge - Week 3 - Rock 'n Roll 60's

*** Edit*** This is my chosen card to be considered for a member of the design teamor a guest designer.
many thanks
Jan ****

Well...when I first saw this challange I thought ..nah can't do that!! This week the guys over at Stamping for the Weekend would like you to use the following song titles as inspiration, ~ A Whiter Shade of Pale - Procol Harum ~ Time of the Season - Zombies or ~ Please Mr. Postman - Marvelettes ~ (just the titles not the lyrics) but when I saw the fab DT cardshere I just had to have a go. Which one did I choose? lol...yep you got it - Whiter Shade of Pale...well it should be cream shade of pale but hey!! I used my favorite little cutie Ketto Agnes by Stamping Bella as I thought she was delicate enough to give this creation the look I wanted..DP's are Pebblesinc. I used Punched flowers with paper roses which I dusted with Shimmer paint and sizzix leaves. I tied tulle on the ribbon as I wanted a light and airy feel and added sparkle to Agnes. I hope I did the classic tune justice!!

Truly Scrumptious Challenge #9

Hi All...this is my entry for this weeks Truly Scrumptious Challenge. There is a lovely sketch to follow plus they want to see altered flowers, why not pop over to check out the DT'S cards herethey are wonderful as ever.

Now my card...yes I know its June but isnt this the time of year when we start making our Christmas cards? At least its a cool theme as its going to nice and warm next week. I made a square card as I just cant do anything else!! lol so I hope that it is allowed. Lovely Tilda with Bell has been coloured with Prismas and sparkled. The DP is Forever Friends and the flowers have been altered into 'flower flakes' I punched and spotty embossed them, then chalked with shimmery blue. The middle snowflakey bits are from K & Co and have to say that whoever put them together needs new glasses as all the gems were off centre and I had to take them off and reposition them!! finished with a bit of ribbon and sentiment from Craftworks and of course a bit of bling..Thanks for dropping by...

Hi...this is my entry for this weeks A.B.C Challenge - S for summer. What a great challenge especially as we been having such lovely weather!! Why not have a look at the fab DT's cards here I was inspired to make this card using my last piece of the floral Basic Grey DP from their Sultry range as I thought it had all the ingredients for that lovely summer floral look. I'm going to have to get some more..I just love them..I teamed it up with a bit of Pebblesinc DP and added a Gorjuss one as she looks as if she is sitting amongst the flowers!!! Sizzix leaves, Punched flowers and some summery gingham ribbon from stash completes the look. Your comments would be great!!
