Patriotic!

Good morning followers and passers by. I'm here today with a brand new challenge from the Polkadoodles blog, and this week the team were challenge to make something in Red, White and Blue. As soon as I saw this I knew what I was going to use as I need to make a male card for someone who likes clean and simple cards, but also loves the sea. So here it is.
Of course the collection that I have used is the fab Winnie Starfish and Sandcastles collection. I've drawn some faux stitch lines around the edge of the background layer which is mounted onto the card on 3D foam. Then I've simply used 3 banners and the boat, all fussy cut and mounted onto 3D foam, and there you have it.

Feel the music!

Good morning and a happy 
Where does the time go, it doesn't seem two minutes since I was saying this!
Anyhoo, over at the Digi Choosday blog today the team were set the challenge of making the sentiment to focal point of our make. The challenge for you is of course as always, anything goes.
So here is my make.

I've used the Work and Play 8, Feel The Music collection. As always you can buy in smaller sets, or individually here. I've used grey card to back the papers and sentiment on as it matches perfectly with the colour tones in the papers. I've fussy cut all the embellies and mounted them onto 3D foam to make them pop. This card just goes to show you don't always need to have an image of a person or animal on, and it still works.
Now don't forget to go grab your discount code which is valid for the next 24 hours.

I'm entering this into the following challenges:

Dotty!

Good morning everyone. I'm here today with the mid challenge inspiration post from the Polkadoodles blog. And the challenge for the team was to use dots. Well anyone who knows me knows how much I love polkadots, lots and lots of my clothes are covered in polkadots! Anyhow enough waffling and onto my make for this week.
I've used this as another chance to get in front with my Christmas cards for this year, so I've used the Winnie In Winterland collection. Both of the backing papers have dots on them and then I've used the oval frame die from the Bubbleicious die set which also has a pin dot line around the edges. I've mounted the top layer of paper and the topper onto 3D foam. I've layered up some of the beautiful flowers and added some stamens to them.
I'll see you next week with the new challenge from the Polkadoodles blog.

A little bit Alice

Good morning a very happy
Today over at the Digi Choosday blog the team were challenged to make something using more than one image and here is my make.
Yes once again I've used the fabulous Winnie In Wonderland collection. You can also buy this collection in smaller sets and individual items HERE. I've matted one of the backing papers onto some teal card and the same with the two images. I've cut out lots of embellies and glued some onto the card flat, and mounted some onto 3D foam. The two topppers and beautiful Flamingo are also mounted onto 3D foam, as is the sentiment.
Now don't forget as always to go to the BLOG to grab today's discount code and check out my teamies makes.

Pastels

Good morning and a very happy 
 Today over at the blog the team were challenged to make something in soft pastel colours. When I think of pastel it always makes me think of Cherry Blossom Lane
I've always loved this collection, it's so sweet.
I've used two of the backing papers and one image printed 3 times and decoupaged up.
Now as always don't forget to go grab today's discount code from the blog, and check out what the rest of the team have made.

A bit shabby!

Good morning and a very happy
 So over at the Digi Choosday blog today the team were set the challenge of making something with a Shabby Chic theme. Well this to mean means distressed and inked edges with some lovely cotton lace, so here is my make.
I've used the new Winnie Special Moments kit to make this. I've used design sheet number 9 and one of the backing papers. There are loads and loads left over including a full size image to use on another make. I really don't know how Nikky manages to cram so much on theses sheets!
So I've sanded and inked the edges of the papers and topper and mounted everything onto 3D foam to make it pop. I've layered some of the flowers up to make a lovely big bloom for the corner, and sanded and inked the edges of the sentiment. I added the butterfly around the curve of the topper and the lace bow under the topper to finish it off.
So don't forget to go grab today's massive discount code and check out all the fabulous makes from the rest of the team.
I'm entering this into the following challenges:

Sunshine

Good morning everyone. Today over at the Polkadoodles blog we have an new challenge for you, and that challenge is to make something with a sunshine feel, and here is my make.






I've used the beautiful Winnie Sugar Sprinkles collection for my make, and I used design sheet 11 from the collection. You can buy the collections in smaller bundles, and the sheets and images separately here. I've added some interest by adding some squiggly lines around the edge of the card and backing paper. I've  mounted everything else onto 3D foam to make it pop.

Exciting times!

Good afternoon everyone. I have some exciting news to share with you today. I have only gone and been asked to be on the Oddball Art design team!!!! I love Lizzy's images so was thrilled to receive the email telling me I was an Oddball! Well ok, I've known I've been odd for years now. If you've not heard of Oddball Art you can find the blog HERE and the Etsy shop and all the loveliness HERE.
So I'm on the Facebook team where we have a new challenge every month, on the 1st of the month. And then on the 14th of each month we have a mid challenge inspiration post.
So here is my very first make for the team, I just hope it's good enough!

I've used the beautiful Big Eye Fairy Happy Holly image. I've coloured her with my Copic pens which I'm getting back into using. The papers I've used are some cheapy ones from the pound shop but I thought they went perfect with the pen colours I'd used. The flowers are from my stash.
So why not pop over to our Facebook page and join in our challenge, which you can find HERE. And don't forget I'll be back on the 14th with some mid challenge inspiration. Of course I'll be back with other stuff before then.

I'm going on a colouring course in September so hopefully will be getting better and better with them. Of course I'll still use my beloved Graph'It Markers, but will be swapping between the two.
