For Big Brother

Hi Everyone

It is the start of a new challenge today over at Creative Craft Cottage 
 


The theme for the next fortnight is For the Men/Boys.

We have two great sponsors for this challenge one of which is Crafty Sentiments Designs and I chose to work with this cute image called Herbie the Bear which I coloured using Copics.  


For my DT project I made a card for my Children's Big Brother.

The card blank is a 7" Square and the patterned paper is from Trimcraft,  I double layered it and I was so pleased that in the smaller layer the candy cane patterned lined up perfectly lol!  The image and layer is cut from a Go Kreate Die and the candy cane is a Sizzix Die.  The Happy Christmas words are cut using a Robert Addams Die and the Brother is a Cheery Lynn Die.  Lots of different dies on this one!!  I finished the card by adding Red Pearl Gems.




 Thank you for visiting my blog today and sharing this card with me.  Hope you can come on over and play along in the challenge with us.  Please leave me a comment to let me know what you think.  Hope to see you again soon.

All Dressed Up Challenges are having a mini challenge.  They have asked that young crafters colour up or colour up and make a card using one of their images and enter it for the chance to win.

I mentioned it to my three children and they all chose the images they wanted to colour.  However only one of them actually got around to colouring it lol.

Here is Ryans colouring of the image called First Prize and he coloured up using pencils.

Wine O'Clock!

Hi Everyone

Today I would like to share with you a card I have made for my Friends birthday later in the year.  As soon as I saw this image which was recently released at Faery Ink I just new that this would have to go on her card lol.  The image is called Time for Wine Layla and I have coloured her with Copics.

I decided to make an easel card as I haven't made on of them for a while.  The patterned paper is from Trimcraft and I die cut some Wine glasses one in red and two in a white Glitter card using a Joy Die.  I added a Green Polka Dot Ribbon and hand tied the bow.  The Happy Birthday sentiment is hand stamped and is from Stampingallday.  I finished by adding some Green Pearl Flower Gems.




Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog and share this card with me.  Please leave me a comment to let me know what you think.  Hope to see you again soon.

Cartwheeling Fun

Hi Everyone

It's time for a new challenge over at A Gem of A Challenge

 

The theme for the next fortnight is Outside Fun.  I hope that you can come over and play along with us.  Check out what the talented DT have done for your inspiration too!

I was so excited to find that this Cartwheel Jodie stamp was in the Pink Gem Designs Store  I have been searching for ages for a Gymnastic type image for Chloe and also for her friends at the Gymnastics Club she attends.  I coloured this using Copics 

For my DT inspiration card I made Chloe's Birthday card.  As soon as I found the image I knew I just had to work with it straight away so although her birthday is not until December I am all prepared lol

The Card Blank is a 7" Scalloped Square and the Patterned Paper is from LOTV.  The sentiments I typed on the laptop before I printed the image.  I added some Lace Trim and cut the flowers using a Marianne Craftables Die.  I finished by adding Pearl Gems.



 

I had so much fun colouring this up as I do with all of the Pink Gem Images but this is definitely one of my favourites.

Thank you for visiting my blog and sharing this card with me.  Please leave me a comment to let me know what you think.  Hope to see you again soon.

Hi Everyone

It's time for the start of a new challenge over at CCC Digi Creations today.


The theme for the next fortnight is Three of a Kind.  I hope that you can come on over and play along with us.

We have some great sponsors for this challenge one of which is Delicious Doodles and I chose to colour up this gorgeous image called Jolly Holly Postbox.  I coloured this using Copics and ProMarkers


 I was sat outside the gym where my Daughter does her Gymnastics colouring this image when the Gym Coach decided that it would be perfect as a Christmas Card for one of her friends so that's where this one is headed lol!  The Card Blank is a 7" Square Card and the Patterned Paper is from Trimcraft.  I added a Green Satin Ribbon and Hand Tied the Bow.  The sentiment I typed on the computer before printing off the image.  To finish I added Three Clear Green Gems.
