Rachel, Little Angel - Digi Bells Post

Hi Everyone

I hope you are all well and your week is going well.  I am here today with my card for the Digi Bells inspiration blog.  This time I am using a sweet little image called Rachel, Little Angel which you can get from the Elisabeth Bell digi gallery here.  

Here is my card:


 



Isn't she adorable!  I have coloured with copics and polychromos.  The paper is from Samantha Walker Cuckoo 4 U - Chocolate Melon.  The colours aren't ones I normally use so it was nice to do something different.  The swirl die is Cheery Lynn mini fanciful flourish and then just added flowers, pearls and glamour dust.  

That's it from me!  Please do pop on over to the Digi Bells inspiration blog and also make sure you pop over there on Friday 1 February as we are having a blog hop to celebrate a brand new release.  You won't want to miss it, it is just gorgeous!

Love and Hugs

New Release and Blog Hop!!

Hi All!!

I am super excited today!  Gorgeous Kerry over at Ladybug Crafts Ink invited me to join in as guest designer for their brand new release today!!  Of course I said yes!  The chance to be a Ladybug just one more time was just too good pass up!!  I miss those girls!

Anyway, the new release is just up my street!! The collection is called "Killer Heels"!!

So onto business.  There are lots of ways to win prizes, all the details are below.  You should have arrived here from my gorgeous blogging buddy Laurie.  If you are lost then head back to the challenge bog here.  So here is my card!!





I tried something a little different.  I wanted to keep to a simple style and layout and let the image do the talking!  Don't you just love those shoes!!  

When I first saw the image I immediately thought the fabric on both the shoes and the top of the bag would be made of silk and I decided on different colours of pink. The rolled flowers would also be in silk and very dimensional.  You can't really tell from the photo but the bag is covered in glamour dust.  I have a bag like this which is full of sequins and I got my inspiration from that!  I thought that a black and white background card would be a good combination with the pink.  I do hope you like it and that I have done the image justice!  

So onto the rules of the hop:
1. Leave a comment on each of the DT posts as you hop;
2. Collect the letters from some of the DT and email lcichallengeblog.aol.com with the word they spell (ps they are mixed up);
3. Leave a comment on the challenge blog letting us know which image you like best;
 4. Display the badge in your side bar to spread the word (you can get the badge from my side bar). 

 The winner of the hop will receive all 6 of the new digi images .. and 5 runners up will receive 1 image each.

Not only can you do the hop and win a prize .. but there is also have a normal challenge running too and the theme this week is:

 "GIRLY/FEMALE"

the prize will be a Cling stamp from Ladybug Crafts Ink.

Right I think that is it!!  You now need to hop on over to the super talented Julie, I am sure she will have something very special!! 

Have fun!  I am off to the do the hop now myself!

Love and Hugs

Posh has a Present!

Good Morning!

I hope you are all well and looking forward to your weekend!  I know I am!  

I managed to find time to colour up an image just for fun the other night.  Its my mission this year to find time to make cards and colour up images for fun rather than for DT work (not that DT work isn't fun but you know what I mean!!)  One range I want to us more of is Stamping Bella and particularly the Uptown Girls, which is what I have done today!  

Here is my card:




This gorgeous lady is called Posh has a Present.  I decided to go for a green/pink combo, I haven't done this for a while and I quite like the fresh green of her dress.  I have kept the background quite simple so that the image pops out.  I added some felt rolled flowers using Die-namics rolled flower and added some lace ribbon, pearls and glamour dust.

I had fun colouring her up, I hope you like her.  

OK, that's it from me today.  Have a great day whatever you are up to.

Love and Hugs

So onto my card:




You may not be aware but Karen over at Funky Kits now has Simply Sassy images available on digi, check them out here!  I have used the gorgeous Tiffany.  I teamed her up with papers from MME (can't remember the name of the pack I am afraid) and she is coloured with copics and pencils.  I added flowers, pearls and glamour dust.  The die is Cheery Lynn mini fanciful flourish.  The little sentiment is Tiny Tags from SU.

Brand New Challenge at MAWTT

Good Morning Everyone!

I hope you are well and your week is going ok.

I have two posts for you today.  The first one is my project for the new challenge at Moving Along With The Times.  I have had a little break from the team but I am very excited about being back (I missed the girls too much!) and I am raring to go!

There have been some changes to the set up of the team.  We have expanded the team quite a bit and we have now split into two teams.  There will still be a new challenge every week though.  Pop on over to the main challenge blog and this will explain everything!

So onto our challenge this week and our Hazel is the hostess and has picked the theme of

"Floral Delights"

We are sponsored by "A Passion For Stamps" who have some wonderful images to play with.  Check out the store below.  

My Logo

We were given some images to use and here is my creation:




I decided to make a thank you card and used this gorgeous image called "Cosmos" which you can get here.  I think the papers worked wonderfully well and they are from Carina Gardner Studio - Flourish pack.  I just added some ribbon, glamour dust and pearls.  I left it quite simple apart from adding some little butterflies.  

Please pop on over to the challenge blog to see all the rest of the inspiration and welcome the gorgeous new ladies to the team!

That's it for now, I will be back shortly with my card for the new Sugar Bowl challenge.

Happy Friday

Good Afternoon!

Yippee, its Friday!  For a short week it feels like a very long one!!  

I have a card for you today that I did last year but never got around to popping on here.  It was made at a colouring class held at Crafts U Love and which was run by the gorgeous Jacqui aka Cat Whiskers.  I went on three of four of these classes last year, I hope she will be doing more this year as they are a lot of fun!  

Here is my card:



The image is from Art Impressions, this one is called Annie (Front and Back) which is currently on sale at Crafts U Love here.  I did have problem stamping the front facing image to fit by the fence, you may notice her hand is hovering just above it!!  Oh well!  

The image was coloured with Copics and Polychromos.  I love the colours and the gorgeous heart border punch (can't remember who this is by, sorry!)  

I hope you like it.  

Have a super weekend!

Love and Hugs
