Beautiful Girl....

I'm not a huuuuuge fan of digi's...hate the ink bleeds, miss the stamping action (i know, I'm weird!!) but I fell in love with this free (need i say more...?!) digi from Saturated Canary!  And finally got around to colouring her in......! Love her even more!!
I teamed her up with some yummy MME papers, Making Memories flowers, ribbon by ....?
I chose this image especially for my beautiful niece, who has HUGE brown eyes and luscious dark hair - she is DEFINITELY a GOOD girl - so into the Saturated Canary challenge she goes!!
I would also like to enter this card Bunny Zoe's Crafts Challenge - their theme is GIRLY - don't think they come any girlier than this chick!!
Simon Says Stamp Challenge would like to see a BIT O GREEN - yep - lots of green here too!!
It's been sooooo long since I entered any challenges - wondered if I'd remember how!! lol bx

Crafty Creations Challenges - #210 Tic Tac Toe

This Penny Black cutie has lay unloved for a while...until I inked it up for our new Crafty Creations Challenge:
Tic Tac Toe
It's a fun new theme for us this week - choose any 3 items in a row from the box and go to town!!
I chose: buttons, paper piece, red
Obviously RED was always gonna be in there; I paper pieced the unbrella, hat and coat and boats (all from scraps, thinking of you Juls!! lol), i added a coat of glaze to the wellies (gotta have shiny wellies dontcha...?); and added those teeny wee heart buttons on the gorgeous red mac!

Time for a fun new challenge at Crafty Creations Challenges:
Black & White plus 1 other colour
Of course my "other" colour was always going to be red or orange or PINK!!
I inked up this gorgeous gal, and gave her a pretty pink paper pieced frock!! I dug into the scraps box for these papers (7 gypsies, Bo-Bunny and Doodle-bug).

Crafty Creations Challenges - #207 Anything BUT a Card...

There's a fun new challenge this week at Crafty Creations Challenges...

Anything BUT a Card.....

Felt is very popular these days, and I've seen lots of lovely little felt creations so decided to have a go at making something myself!! This felt is lovely, it's by Papertrey Ink, cuts like butter.  Of course the plan in my head completely changed once I sat down to make it, but I like how it turned out anyway - sorta soft n pretty n girly - and NO pink or red in sight!! lol 

This week's generous sponsor is Guylou's Inimitability - so for your chance to win our prize share your project with us! bx

Crafty Creations Challenges - #206 Take Two

This week's new theme at Crafty Creations Challenges is:

Take TWO

We want to see 2 IDENTICAL "somethings" on your creation! It could be 2 images, 2 embellishments, anything as long as they are identical!

Seems like forever since I have coloured an image - I was afraid I'd forgotten how!!  I used this cute image from Lili of the Valley and challenged myself to make a side easel card!! Not much of a challenge you may say but when you get stuck in the rut of making the same old same old....anyway, turned out like this!!

My 2 - I used 2 impressions of the POSTCARD stamp, and i used 2 of the metallic brad arrows (just can't remember the proper name of those right now...another wee blonde moment i guess!!) 

We are generously sponsored by A Creative Need Digital Images - so for your chance to win, show us your project with TWO!! bx

Crafty Creations Challenges - #204 Something New

Happy New Year to one and all!! I couldn't believe how long it's been since my lost post - wow, the time has just flown by!!

Today's new theme at Crafty Creations Challenges is:

Something New

 I was lucky enough to have an American holiday just before christmas and was able to help santa choose some (ok LOTS!!) fab pressies for me!!  So this was a great opportunity to play with some of my new toys!!

I got this Front & Centre Die from Papertrey Ink - I used it to make a little gift bag.  (I'm going to make a few more of these to house little cupcakes)!  Got that Bazzill Basics card stock in the sale so that's new too!!  Once I made the little bag, i thought it needed a card to go with - so voila!!  I used another new edger die on my card. The sentiment SWEET is from a new Papertrey Ink stamp set - I mixed it up with a MFT sentiment on the card. The Simple Stories paper pad is not new - but it had't had enough love yet!! lol

As always we have a very generous sponsor, Robyn's Fetish Digital Stamps & More is offering a prize for one lucky random winner - so why not show us something NEW?! bx
