My new card winging it's way to my friend Nicky soon!

I have coloured this with promarkers, glamour dust and glossy accents and decorated with some lush bling as that was our challenge to each other!

I ♥ promarkers challenge on Facebook.

Well just got this challenge done by the skin of my teeth as it's once a month! I have been wanting to do this one for ages but have just not got around to it until last night! Yes talk about last minute! Anyway here she is! She is an image from charmed cards and crafts and I have coloured her dress in magenta and berry red. Her shoes are lime and pine ( I think!) I also used glossy accents and a bit of bling as every girl needs a bit of sparkle when she's all dressed up to party!

Dotties world challenge

This week over on Dottie's world challenge the challenge was to use bling, either gems or glitter or both. I have given my fairies some blingy wings but there was no room to add any more gems!! I coloured this with Lyras.

Willow sketchie

Over on the willow sketchie challenge blog, Heidi provided the sketch to follow and we also had to make a Christmas card! I have used the woody download and the snowman download for this. I cropped the Woody image and then flipped it, coloured with promarkers, layering colours to get the colour I wanted. I then made a present for the recipient's tree so it's a present and card in one! I think it's turned out quite well!!

Let's get stamping group on craftbubble

Here's my take on the challenge over on the let's get stamping craftbubble group. Sharon provided the sketch this week. I have used a lovely Penny Black image sent to me by my friend Teresa and have coloured them with promarkers. I even stamped on the little buttons! I also used basic grey papers.

Dare u challenge

This week on the dare u 2 digi stamp challenge blog the theme was pink, black and white. Herer's my take on the challenge. I used the lovely charmed crafts girls about town downloads and coloured them with promarkers. The paper is also a download from Pink Petticoat from the lola's boudoir collection which is retiring.

More blog candy!

I have just discovered Natalie's blog! What a great find it is too. She has some fabulous blog candy up for grabs. Her work is stunning and well worth a look.

Dotties world challenge.

This week on Dottie's world challenge, the brief was to take inspiration from your garden. Here's mine. The little robin visits me every day! I have a little fence and lots of yellow flowers and a few strawberries hence colouring the pixie's dress in a strawberry colour.

Penny Black

Finally here's a card that I made earlier from an image that my friend Teresa sent me. I have coloured this one with H20s. The papers were freebies from a mag and the sentiment is from the popcorn stamp set.

New crafters companion Challenge.

My fellow blogger Wendy has been very busy setting up a new crafter's companion challenge blog. If you have any of the crafter's companion cds and/ or stamps then this is definitely worth a look and there is also a prize up for grabs! There is a sketch to follow. Here's my take on the sketch, but I am a bit cross as I have managed to put a blob of ink on Popcorn's nose!!

Beautiful pixie.

I have made this card using the new pixie download set 1 from charmed cards and crafts. I think I will give it to my sis in law who is having a 40th birthday soon.

Well, I have finally got my act together and got my mojo back.....I think! I went on holiday to Cornwall a couple of weeks ago and when I came back it seemed that my mojo had completely vanished....left on the beach I think!

Anyway, I seem to be getting back into the swing of things now and thought I would put up some more cards on my blog. I have been feeling ill today with the horrible sickness and diarrhoea ( yuck) so can't be too far from the bathroom and have had an impromptu day off work, shame I haven't been able to enjoy it!!

On Saturday the let's get stamping group over on Craftbubble had the usual challenge and there was a sketch to follow as well as the added twist of using the colours red, white and blue.

Here's my take on the challenge using the fab downloads from Sharon!
