Sugar Nellie Challenge 54 - Lilian's Sketch

Now we've reached the end of February spring is just around the corner so I've gone with a spring time feel for this card. I used MCS to create the backing paper for this sweet image of a little girl holding a new born lamb.

Bah Humbug 8 - Things that Fly

I decided to use a rubber stamp by Graphicus for this week's Bah Humbug Challenge
Her wings are made using Angelina fibres sandwiched between two sheets of film and I used a backing paper from Winters Sleep CD by Debbeescds. This particular design of snowflakes is one of my favourites for a soft and gentle wintery background.

CD Sunday Challenge - Art Nouveau

The theme of Art Nouveau for this week's CD Sunday challenge is just right for a friend's birthday card this week. I just love images from that era. I had these Debbie Moore stamps in my stash so it was a good opportunity to get them out and then do some colouring with Promarkers.

The backing paper is from My Craft Studio Art Nouveu CD.

23 February

I think this stamp of a giraffe with heart shaped markings is so sweet I decided to use it for two challenges this week:

Sir Stampalot - All Creatures Great and Small
The Stamp Man - Hearts

Sugar Nellie Challenge 53 - Marlene's Sketch

The Challenge from Sugar Nellie this time is a sketch by Marlene also using colours from a photo on their blog. This is my interpretation.

Bah Humbug 7 - CD/DVD

For the Bah Humbug Challenge this week I took an old CD and wiped a Versamark ink pad over the surface and then sprinkled with a mixture of gold, silver and bronze embossing powders and then heated it all up. The backing paper is from Joanna Sheen's Precious Petals.

CD Sunday Challenge - Get Ahead - Get a Hat

For the challenge at CD Sunday this week I've used an image from Joanna Sheen's Precious Petals CD.

CD Sunday Challenge - Swirls and Pearls

This week's challenge from CD Sunday is Swirls and Pearls and I've used a CD by Kraftyhands called Deco Delights.

Bah Humbug 6 - Doilies

This week at Bah Humbug the theme is Doilies. I've used two for this card, the gold one has been created using a Martha Stewart Punch Around The Page set. Colour has been added to the stamped image using Promarkers.

I really enjoyed this challenge.

Crafters Companion Challenge 9

For this month's Crafters Companion Challenge the theme is Romance so I decided to go with this image of Popcorn and Souffle in shades of blue for a Valentine card for my husband. I had to make sure I had it ready early as he works away from home and will be in Kosovo on Valentines Day. I packed the card in his suitcase so he will have it to open on the day. Ahhhh!

CD Sunday Challenge - Friendship

For this week's challenge from CD Sunday I've chosen this cute image of a little girl with her puppy dog from the CD "Can I Have One?" by Debbees CDs

Bah Humbug 5 - Buttons and Bows

A Partridge in a Pear Tree. This is my offering this week for the Bah Humbug challenge. I've used a backing paper from Crafters Companion Christmas Collection CD2 and used the Colouriser to alter the colour to get the shade I wanted. I've also used a Scrap Magic Template to make the tree.
