Little Witch with Broomstick

And here is my card!
She was just adorable to colour! I coloured Little Witch with Broom in with tria markers and added some kindyglitz to her stripes and the pumpkin. I made the starburst card using papers from Polka Doodles and added a bit og kindyglitz to the dots. I cut out the arrows and dots and added crystal effects so that they stood out. I added the rhinestones and the buttons with twine to finish it off!

Getting Wordy On It at Southern Girls challenge!

It is time for a new challenge at Southern Girls challenge and our theme this week is "Getting Wordy On" it so we want to see words somewhere on your project. We have some fabulous sponsors this challenge:


I used Ginger set from Dilly Beans and here is what I created:
I know I have been creating a few black and white images with a pop of colour but I do like the look of them and this one is no exception. I created the background paper using the words and xo's from the Ginger set, which I mounted on black and red card stock. I coloured the Ginger in with tria markers and glitter pens, then also mounted her on black and red cardstock. The heart embellishments were also part of the Ginger Set, then I finished it off with a couple of buttons.
I hope that you can join us over the next 3 weeks at Southern Girls Challenge.

Where There's Hope at Craft Your Passion!

Hello and welcome to a new challenge at Craft Your Passion. This week our theme is Where There's Hope (so anything with a hope, love, encouragement theme.)
We are sponsored by

I decided to keep this CAS so that the image could speak for itself. I coloured the flowers in with tria markers. I mmounted the image onto black cardstock, then I added the buttons and the sentiments.
I hope that you can join us this week at Craft Your Passion!

Little Rapunzel!


It is my turn to  post over on The Digi Bell's blog and today I am sharing a card using one of my favourite Elisabeth bell digi images Little Rapunzel. I haven't coloured her up for awhile so it was nice to create with her again.
I already had the flower and sentiment stamped in my scrap stash so decided that Little Rapunzel would be perfect with it. I coloured her in with tria markers. I then just added the pearls!.
Thanks for stopping by.. It's nearly time for another Digi Bell's Blog hop featuring a new Elisabeth Bell digi so be sure to stop by on Friday for the new release and each day at The Digi Bell's Blog for more inspiration from the DT using Elisabeth Bell's digi images

Seems a Little Sketchy!

A new challenge has started at Seems a Little Sketchy and this week we are sponsored by



Here is this weeks sketch

And here is my take on the sketch

I was not feeling great when making this card so I do apologise. I coloured the image in with tria markers, then just die cut the image out then added the clear droplets. I did mean to add some stickles to his little show hat but forgot! I will get back into the swing of thins this week... I am starting to feeling a little better after another visit to the doctors and more medication to take!
I hope that you will join us this fortnight at Seems a Little Sketchy.

Little Best Friends at The Digi Bell's!

It is my turn to post over on The Digi Bell's blog (acouple of hours early). I recently got a new ink pad so decided today I would do some experiemnting with the ink and photo paper and came up with this design.
I have used Little Best Friends from Elisabeth Bell's digi collection. I wanted the image to stand out so decided to only add a couple of embellishments. That base card stock is white but looks a tinge pink doesn't it!!!
Sorry for the short post but have had a chest infection the past week which I can't seem to shake and it really is knocking me about. Hopefully I am feeling better soon!
Thanks for stopping by

Colour Combo at Craft Your Passion!

WE have had a very eventful day today... Took my so too the doctors for a cough and left with all three of us on antibiotics and ventolin. Then went to the park and left with my sister going to hospital and my son having xrays and scans on his leg.... So I am just going to chill out tonight and hope nothing else can go wrong.
It is time for a new challenge at Craft Your Passion and this week we have a colour combo we would love you to use. The colours are Purple, Orange, Green and Blue. WE have a fabulous new sponsor this week:

 
We were lucky enough to choose an image to create with so I picked Aurora Spring Butterfly. I coloured her with tria markers and added a bit of sparkle to her hair (not that the camera picked it up). I then used papers from my scrap stash, embossing the orange one. I then added the twine. die cut flowers and butterflies , then just randomly added the rhinestones!
I hope that you can join us this week at Craft Your Passion.
I am entering this into the following challenge:
* Crafting When We Can - No Designer Papers
