We are sponsored by Crafty Ribbons this week, so I have added a delicate accent to my card using some 5mm silk ribbon with a lovely picot edging ( at least I think that's what you call it!)
For my image I have gone with a beautiful LOTV design which I have coloured with Distress Markers and Zig Real Colour Pens.
This was one of those cards where I was just able to relax and enjoy the process. Hope you like it as much as I enjoyed making it!
Bye for now.

The theme this week is embossing so I chose to use an embossing folder and I found this beautiful one with dandelion seeds which i think is a perfect match to the lovely image.
I have coloured my image with Spectrum Noirs and I used Spectrum Aquas and glycerine to colour my embossed background.
Finally I added a little bit of magic in the form of glitter on the seed heads. :-)
Thanks for visiting today, and don't forget to some and join in the fun at Cute Card Thursday!

We have a new challenge over at Cute Card Thursday, and this week we are sponsored by Bugaboo stamps. Our theme is anything goes, so this week I decided to do a little Christmas preparation, using this lovely Christmas tree image for Bugaboo.
I love how all the tress are in a row, and they are really fun to colour as each one is just a little different. I used my Spectrum Noirs to colour these in, and you can see the list below.
Look forward to seeing you over at Cute Card Thursday.
Spectrum Noir Colours used: BT1, BT2, CR7, DR6, CT2, CT4, CG2, CG4, JG6, EB6, EB8

Unusually for me I went with fairly traditional colours, and the old die cutting machine got a good work out too. The card based and mats were all made from the a Spellbinders giant nesting die and the holly comes from the new White Christmas range at Tattered Lace.
So, my final world is to say thank you very much to Lisa and the rest of the Cuties DT for making me so welcome this month, and letting me join in the fun on both the Cutie Pie and the Christmas with Cuties challenges this month!
Bye for now.

It's challenge time once again at Colour Crazy and this time we are sponsored by the wonderful Lemon Shortbread company.
Whilst the theme is always 'Anything Goes' for our participants, here on the DT we are adopting a Surfer theme this week, and between us we have been playing with boy and girl surfer images.
I picked the little girl, as I thought that would be a little out of the ordinary!
This image comes with the lovely background that you see, so I set to work colouring everything in, in flat colour, using my Spectrum Noir pens. But then I thought it looked a little too flat, so I went over the top with my Faber Castell pencils to add some depth, and also to make the surfboard look like it had some wood grain showing through (even though it is red!).
I then created a frame for my card using teal card, and this frame actually sits over the top of the design paper for a change so it is a little different.
I also decoupaged the little girl and her board, to make her a bit more prominent. If you look closely you might be able to see the shadows. :-)
Thanks very much for visiting today, and I look forward to seeing you over at Colour Crazy this week.
Bye for now.

We are sponsored by Lia Stamps this week, who kindly provided us with this gorgeous little girl to play with. I think she is just adorable.
I found some lovely papers in my stash - they are Tilly Daydream by Do Crafts, and, as you can see they have some beautiful patchwork papers and a coordinating apple paper - so I made sure to colour my little girl to match. In the end I am feeling like it is a little bit of a harvest festival type theme.
So that's my card for today. Hope you like it and that you will come and share some of your much loved patterned papers over at Fab n Funky this week.
Bye for now.

I am delighted that I was recently asked, by the lovely Lisa, to be a guest DT at The Cutie Pies challenge!
They are midway through their challenge this week, which has a theme of 'Here Come the Girls' and is sponsored by Crafty Sentiments who do indeed have the cutest little images.
So here is what I created for the challenge:
I wanted my little cutie to be relaxing in her beautiful bathroom and feeling pampered, so I have created this 3d card to give that effect. I'm not sure what you call this style of card, but I had seen some examples made this way recently, and thought I would give it a go.
So - I hope you like my card today and that you will join in with the fun over at The Cutie Pies.
Thanks very much to Lisa and the team for letting me join in with the fun!
