dt post for just inspirational challenges

This weeks challenge is sponsored by Paper shelter, and the theme is rosettes. I'm afraid i am running late with this posting due to 3 hospital appointments this week and one being an 8 hour day.

This card my son actually wanted for a friend of his who is a total rock chick. The backing paper came with the image, but i colored the image with promarkers as he wanted a lot of violet and pink in it as they are her colors. The pink card at the back i ran through the dottie embossing folder in my mums embossing machine which is the next one up from my big shot. I made the rosette from a sheet of the purple backing paper and then added a few silver musical notes about.

Dt Post for Brown Sugar

The stamp i have used is digi image 17002, which i think they are really cute. I wanted a lovely bright citrus feel to the card, i colored an extra flower at the front and cut out to give an extra bit of dimension. Colored with promarkers, ribbon and gems from hobbycraft, not sure where the cutout border came from as was just laying around on my desk, The little sentiment came free with a magazine once.

Rosie

This is the the first time i have ever tried doing a dark skin, when i was is hospital for my 8 day stay the other week i met a very nice indian lady who had 2 young girls, we got talking about cards and she said that it wasn't very often you got a darker skin childrens cards, so i thought i would have a go at doing one. probably totally wrong but here's my attempt. I am still trying to play catch up have been at hospital 3 days this week and one day we were there 8 hours tied up in different departments all day and then the consultant had gone home as we were too late going through some of the tests and then to top it all off went back on the ward for the steroid infusion to be told it was now out of hours, no doctors left on ward so we had to do the 60mile round trip again to have it done yesterday. Have to now go back every wednesday for next 3 weeks then christmas eve and 3rd January, so please forgive me for being late with everything.
The image is Rosie from Funky kits over at Sugar Nellie, Colored with promarkers, Papers by kanban and Kaisercraft, Flowers from hobbycraft, Holly leaves signature die by Joanna sheen and snowflakes i seem to have had in craftroom stash forever.. Merry christmas sentiment was a free stamp with simply cards.

gdt for 4 crafty chicks

The challenge this time over at 4 crafty chicks is anything goes, i thought i would have a break from Christmas cards and use this great image from Patti G, i colored one image then decided it would be nice to do another, cut it out and layer it to give it some depth and really make those leaves come alive. I colored with promarkers. The backing sheet is from hunkeydory and pearls are by habico. I edged the circle with tim holtz distress ink. Very plain and simple but i think it all comes together quite well.

Dt post for Just inspirational challenges


 I am still trying to catch up after being in hospital for 8 days, still feeling pretty rough and no energy for anything, has been a struggle just getting in front of computer, but i will get there just feeling sorry for myself today. We were supposed to be away for a 3 day break and my hubby and 2 sons had booked me on a molly bloom workshop for the day a part of my christmas box, so they had to tell me and cancel my place, i no there will be other opportunities but how nice would it have been plus a few days away which we have not had a break for 18 months plus. Thats my moaning done.
  This weeks challenge is to use a wooden embellishment somewhere on your project. The sponsor this time is Stitchy bear, all the great images can be found there that the dt have used. So come over to just inspirational challenges and have a go

winter wonderland

this image is called winter wonderland and reindeer which is by Sherri Baldy and is part of the besties range. No your not imagining it i did make a card the other day using the same image which i adore, just so cute. I always look at some of the bestie cards people have made as well as the tilda ones and think mine never look like that but i suppose its everyone to their own what one person likes is not the same as others. I decided to make an easel card which i don't do very often. I wanted something stylish but not too over the top as i need to post it and you know how expensive that can be.
colored with promarkers, backing papers papermania and some free ones i got with a magazine, flowers cut out with britannia dies poinsettia, holly leaves signature dies by joanna sheen, gems, ribbon and charm from craftroom stash. I followed a sketch from sketch and stash
