Sketch Saturday #52

Hello, thought I'd better put my entry on quick for the <Sketch Saturday blog Challenge,before I run out of time to enter.

I really enjoyed doing this sketch and the card fell together quite easily with it. I decided to use green and yellow for a change as I tend to stick to alot of pink and purple on my cards. Coloured Tilda with Copics and layered her onto the sissix cut out and DCWV spotty papers. Added flowers, sentiment, brads, buttons and bling.

Here's a different view of the card.

Thanks for looking
Take care

Penny Black Saturday Challenge Wk 49

This weeks challenge over at Penny Black Saturday Challenge was to use a recipe of 3 flowers, 2 papers and 1 brad/charm on your card. I used this image that was sent to me by my blogging friend Shelley at Minkies paper paradise (Thanks shelley)I coloured it with Copics and then layered onto lilac card and backing papers. I added the 3 flowers,used 2 backing papers and added 1 brad to the centre of the top flower. The sentiment was a magazine freebie from a while back. I added some glitter glue, buttons and bling to finish.

Also this next week there will be a new challenge blog starting on 1st June called The Next Level It promises to be something quite new with tutorials, hints and tips and lots of information for us all to share in as well as a weekly challenge. Sounds good. Click on the link to go and check it out.

Dragonfly Tilda

Wow 2 posts in a week --- I'm really getting back into this!!!! Not for long though as I wont be able to get up into my loft this coming week as hubby is on late shift and my eldest has got GCSE exams all week (poor thing)and needs to revise in the evenings so I must be on hand to provide cups of tea and biscuits and keep the little one from mithering her every 5 minutes.

So enough of me waffling, here's the card. Bought this stamps last weekend at the craft show I went to. Have seen her many times on other peoples cards and thought she was so cute. I coloured her with Copics in sort of dragonfly colours and glittered her wings and collar. Layered her onto some backing papers added ribbon, bow and flowers. The sentiment stamp is my daughters(not sure of make) layered onto a small nestability circle- also glittered.

Will be back later in the week to post my effort for the Penny Black Saturday challenge . So have a good week everyone and thanks for looking.

Hello I'm Still Here!!!

Hello, sorry I haven't updated in a while, I haven't got any real excuses other than I couldn't muster up the enthusiasm to get my butt up into the loft and get crafting. Anyway after visiting the Happy stampers Northwest stamp show at Port Sunlight it seems I purchased some enthusiasm along with some yummy new stamps!!Haha

Isn't she a beautiful stamp, I just couldn't leave her there. A stand called Paper Pleasures from Nova Scotia, Canada were selling them. she is called "Crystal" from a collection called Enchanted Hallow.

I stamped her in Versafine and coloured her with copics, I layered her onto card and "little sizzles" backing paper. I added the Sizzix die cut swirls, glitter glue, ribbon and sentiment.
