Clean and Simple!


Today I'd like to share something I find very hard to do with these beautiful images from  Polkadoodles.co.uk  It is a Clean and Simple style and that's our theme as DT's in this weeks challenge starting today over at Digi choosday crafting challenge . I do hope you will come over and join in but remember we are a "anything goes" challenge so feel free to share what ever it is your making today.

But after I said I find it hard I have to say I'm quite pleased with the outcome!

I have used another image from the stunning Winnie-winterland-big-kahuna-digital-craft-download-bundle
there are 12 images on there both in black and white for you to colour or the same images are ready coloured just as this one is.  Well it's a busy time so why not but also Nikky understands that not everyone likes to colour in so there is something for us all.
I did some simple mat and layering with a little inking around the edges and popped it up using foam pads. The ribbon I just found in my stash which I think goes very well.

I hope you can join in with us this week and maybe share your CAS cards.

Thanks for stopping in, please leave a few words as it's always nice to see who been by.

Glitter and Sparkle....


Time to share my card for the new challenge starting today over at pink gem challenge blog #231 as a DT member we were asked to use the theme Glitter and Sparkle. But we are a anything goes challenge so you can share what ever it is your making.
Today I have decided to use Emma-christmas-pudding-printable download  she is available now at Polkadoodles.co.uk with many more fun images.

I chose to make a 5x5 card today and first off I added this lovely rusty red gingham paper and added her using foam pads to the right of the card allowing me to add this wonderful  script tree by Polkadoodles which I picked up in a local craft store, I matted it on to a similar red card and fussy cut it out and added it to the far left again using foam pads. To "Glitter" it up I added glitter glue in gold and red as baubles.
I added a little self printed sentiment to tie in with the pudding.  Emma was coloured in using my Promarker pens today.

Thanks for stopping by, I do hope you can come on over and join in the fun with us.

Thank You

Hello there,

Today I'd like to share with you a little card I have made for our neighbors who have kindly helped out with car parking whilst we have been having some garden work which has meant a skip on the driveway.

I have used this wonderfully colourful splash-of-summer-posy-doodles-paper-kit which is available in store on sale at Polkadoodles.co.uk

I have also used the stamp set which unfortunately is out of stock at the moment, but keep checking back you never know. I stamped around the edge of my 5x5 card with the "berry twig" I call it and coloured them in with pencils today.
I took two of the many toppers from the kit and layed one down and the other I fussy cut the mushrooms and strange flowers and added them using foam pads. The stamp is by Verve who unfortunately have closed down now.
Thanks for stopping by today, leave a word or two as it's so nice to see who has stopped by.

I'd like to join in with these other challenges today

Awesome Birthday!

Hello and Happy Sunday!

Today is the start of our new challenge over at lilpatchofcraftyfriends.  and this time around we have another favorite sponsor and it is fabrikafantasy.com . We as DT's have each been given a image to use from the store and I have chosen this cute little guy called cute-zebra-3  when you buy him he comes ready coloured or black and white for you to colour. I have decided to use the pre-coloured version this time. Not everyone likes to colour so this is a Fab idea for the retailer to do.

So today I have made a cute 6x6 birthday card. I chose a paper to go with the colours in the image and placed that down first. Then I cut 2 circles one using a darker blue and the other from the same paper as the main mat.
The image I cut out of the die at the top showing the balloon flying up, I matted that on a little yellow paper and using foam pads I placed it down. I stamped directly on to the paper using my Verve stamps and cut out the Awesome die in red. I added 3 balloons and a cluster of stars which are cut from petrol blue mirri card to finish it off.
I do hope you can come on over and join in the fun this fortnight you could be the winner of the 3 images.

I'd like to enter in the following challenges Ribbongirls. November challenge

Making a Start....

Hi and Oooh it's Tuesday!

Which means it's time to kick start a new challenge over at digichoosday and this week we are thinking about Christmas and Winter themed events.

I know it happens every year but every year I get caught out by not being ready with my cards! So I have decided to make one Christmas card for every none I make for the next few weeks. I know that won't be enough but its a start!

Here is what I have made

I have used a 5x7 card blank and then I printed out 3 different papers, a sentiment and some baubles from the embellishments set of the gorgeous Winnie-winterland-big-kahuna-digital-craft-download  I then printed out the adorable Winnie-winterland-fairy which is in the kit but you can buy her separately.
I have also used my newest die set Polkadoodles Fanciful-circles-nested-6 dieset  This is on sale at the moment and I can tell you it cuts like butter!
I coloured her in using my Promarker pens and added some sparkle to her wings and the baubles too.

I do hope you can come join us, as always Anything Goes! With the chance to win a gift card to spend in store on anything you please.

Mythical Bookworm Unicorn!


Today I'd like to share with you all my card for the new challenge starting today over at A Gem of a Challenge using the adorable images from Pink Gem Designs which you can now find in store at Polkadoodles.co.uk

For my card I have used this cute little Bookworm-Unicorn digi stamp
I have also used for the background winnie-starfish-sandcastles-papers-5 . I have coloured the little fella in with my Promarker pens and added some glitter glue to the stars around him. The blue stars are a Verve Die as are the sentiments. For the little tab I used the fancy-rectangles-tabs-die-set which is on a sale at the moment.
I hope you can come on over and play along. As always we are Anything Goes and there is a FAB prize of a gift voucher to spend in the STORE .

A Little Bit Scary


Today I'd like to share with you my new card for this weeks Digichoosday Challenge  We were asked to think about "spooky" things. So I have made this easel card to celebrate the upcoming Halloween festivities which are becoming more and more popular over here in the U.K in the last few years.

I first made my 6x6 card base from bright white and then I printed off a selection of papers from Halloween-trick-or-treat-printable-papers-3 as well as sentiments from Halloween-trick-or-treat-printable-sentiments and then the cute little Winnie-wednesday-trick-or-treat-precoloured-digi-stamp  I did some mat and layering and made sure I lifted the base sentiment to be the stopper.
I added 2 lengths of ribbon before cutting the image and its mat with the fancy-rectangles-tabs-die-set . I positioned a very creepy spider at the bottom ( it's like she is looking at it! 😧) and a couple of tiny bats too.

I do hope you can join in the fun. You don't have to do spooky as we are a anything goes challenge. So come on over and "show us your makes" lol.

I'm joining in with the following challenges too...
