Little Best Friends - Digi Bells GDT

Hi All

I love Friday's. The weekend starts, two work free days ahead just doing whatever takes your fancy!  I hope you have got some nice plans.  

I have to apologise to the fans of the Digi Bells blog, I should have posted this card last Wednesday. I got a little confused, it doesn't take much!  Anyway, better late than never so they say.  Here is my card:





The gorgeous little image is called Little Best Friends which you can get here from the Elisabeth Bell digi gallery.  Look at their cute chubby little legs! I coloured them up with copics and prisma pencils.  The papers are from Echo Park - Splash paper pack, love this bright summer pack.  The sentiment is from Whimsy Stamps Friendship Tickets and I just added some glamour dust, lace ribbon and pearls.  

I hope you like it.  Pop on over to the Digi Bells blog for some more awesome inspiration form the DT girls using the gorgeous Elisabeth Bell digi images.  

Have a great evening and hopefully will see you soon!

Love and hugs

Red, White & Blue at Elisabeth Bell's World

Hi All

I hope you all had good weekends.  I am not going to mention the football :-(

I am back today as we have a brand new monthly challenge over at Elisabeth Bell's World.  Thanks to everyone who joined in with our sketch challenge last month!  Today the theme is:

"Red, White and Blue"

I have bought a few new Belles 'n Whistles images recently and decided to use "A Pen Friend" for today's card:





I decided to team her up with some of the great digi papers from Raspberry Road.  This set is called Glory Days 2.  I coloured with my copics and pencils and added a touch of glamour dust.  I have used my new Doo Hickeys Flag Die which is my current favourite!  And then just finished off with a sentiment and some pearls.  

I hope you like her!  Please pop over now to the main challenge blog to see the rest of the super talented design team work!  I hope you are able to join in this month.

Speak soon!

Digi Bells Blog Hop!

PLEASE SCROLL DOWN FOR MY WAGS 'N WHISKERS POST

Hi Everyone!  Me Again!

I am here today as GDT for the Digi Bells and its an exciting day as we have a brand new digi release from the gorgeous Elisabeth Bell, and we are celebrating with a blog hop!  

The gorgeous new image is called "Apple Bake" and you can get her from the Elisabeth Bell Digital Collection.  

You should have arrived from the super talented Mary Lou, if you do get lost then hop on back to the Digi Bells DT blog and start there.  Here is my card:





Don't you think she is just the gorgeous thing ever!  And look at the cute little kitty!  I wanted to create a kind of "home kitchen" feel with my card but not sure it really worked!    Isn't it annoying when something in your head doesn't work out on paper!  Anyway I have used some gorgeous digi papers from Raspberry Road called Apple Cinnamon.  I coloured her with copics and prisma pencils.  The ribbon is from my stash.  The background paper actually has an apple bake receipe on it but you can't see it!  

So you now need to hop on over to the fabulous Alethea!  Don't forget if you get lost just pop over to the Digi Bells blog and start there. I hope you have a lot of fun!  I am off to do the hop now myself!

You have until 9am (Arizona Time) on Friday 29 June!  Enjoy!

Love and Hugs

More Kraft at Wags 'n Whiskers!

Morning All!

Busy few days for me this week.  I promise I will post some photos of Ascot but first I am off to Le Touquet until Saturday. Back in time for the France v Spain game although it might have been good to watch that in France!  I have scheduled this post as hopefully I will be on my way now!  Am driving and going via the Tunnel which is so much better than the ferry!!  

So, I have a couple of posts for you today.  My post for the Digi Bells DT Blog Hop will be posted later, but first I am posting my card for the new challenge at Wags 'n Whiskers which is:

"Use Kraft"

Its a sad day as well today as this is my last card for the Wags 'n Whiskers team.  My 6 months stint has now come to an end, it has gone so quickly!  I would like to thank the gorgeous design team for making me feel so welcome, especially to Tanya, Nikki and Lacey!  

So onto my card:




I have used the gorgeous Tiny Dancer again, she is one of my favourites!  I coloured her up with my copics and teamed her with my MME Indie Chic Saffron paper pack and punched some flowers with the paper with my Cheery Lynn Miniature Rose die.  The border is from Martha Stewart.  Then just added some gems and glamour dust.  

I hope you can join with us, don't forget you have a couple of weeks so plenty of time!

Please do go over and check out the rest of the fabulous design team's work. 

Will be back later with my Digi Bells post!

Double Trouble at LCI

Good Morning All

I hope you are well today!  I am off to Ascot tomorrow with some friends, I have never been before so it will be something new to experience! I have an outfit that I wore to Henley last year, I hope it still fits!  I will make sure that I get a photo so I can post it here later in the week.  I also hope the weather plays nice!

Anyway, onto today's business first which is another challenge over at Ladybug Crafts Ink.  The gorgeous Laurie has picked our theme which is:

"Double Trouble"

So we want to see pair's on your card!  Here is my project:





I am sorry about the poor quality of photos.  The image just looks blurry to me and I must have taken it about a dozen times.  Anyway, the image is called Shopping Jess which is part of the new Teenagers digi collection.  My other "doubles" on the card are two DPs, two flowers and two pearls in each corner.   Laurie used a bow like this on her card here the other day and this inspired me to use my lovely ribbon to do the same.  I am so tight with this ribbon, I never use it!  The paper is from MME Miss Caroline Dolled Up and the border punch inside is from Doo Hickey.

Hop on over now to see the rest of the DT's wonderful inspiration.  Enjoy your day and I will see you on Thursday for the start of the Moving Along With The Times 3rd Birthday celebrations!

Love and Hugs

Picture Pose

Good Afternoon!

I made another card today "just because"!  Not for any Design Team!  Its another Sugar Nellie image and this time its from Krista Smith called Picture Pose which you can get from Funky Kits here.  I followed the sketch at the Sugar Bowl and this is what I came up:





I followed the sketch and added some extra flowers!  I have had this lovely image coloured up for months and not made her up, so I thought it was about time! The papers are from MME - Miss Caroline - Dolled Up.  I just added some glamour dust and gems, and ribbon from my stash. I hope you like her!  

That's it from me for now, enjoy the rest of your afternoon!

Sugar Nellie

Hi All.
I hope your weekend went well.  The weather didn't really improve did it.

When I started the year I made a resolution to use images and make cards "just because" and not for any DT work (which, don't get me wrong I do still enjoy!)  The year started off well but somehow has slipped again so I am trying to make more of an effort again now!  One of those that I wanted to use more of and enter more of their challenges was at the Sugar Bowl using Sugar Nellie images. So I coloured up an image over the weekend for this week's sketch challenge.  Here is my card:





This gorgeous little thing is called Charlotte and you can get her at Funky Kits here.  She is absolutely shimmering in glitter but you can't see it from the photos!  I had a lot of trouble finding some paper that was Violet or had shades of this colour, which is odd as it is one of my favourite colours!  I've used some more of my Mulberry Flowers again, from the Hobby House here.  I know I am late to the party with these but I am loving using them!  

I gave the corners some detail with my corner punch, which I don't think I like really but it was too late to change it!  I also used my butterfly punches which I am also still loving.  The ribbon is from my stash.  


I hope you like her, I certainly enjoyed colouring her up!


OK, that's it from me for now.  Have a great day!


Love
