August craftbubble friends challenge.

With Craftbubble closing its doors, I really had to join in with Lauren's bubble challenge this month. My card uses a Leanne Ellis stamp from Sugar Nellie, loads of loverly bubbles here! I thought I would also enter this one into the challenge of Anything goes over at the Sugar bowl challenge.
 Having a bit of a sugar Nellie day, as here's another to go with it!

Saturated Canary Pretties.

My crafting is much like buses at the moment! There's nothing for ages and then three come along at once! Can you tell that hubby's at work today and I have been nowhere?!

Back To School challenge.

This week it's back to school for the DT at Di's digi designs challenge. This little cutie has been coloured with promarkers and I have made it for my cousin who starts as a head of department at a new school in September. Do pop over to join in the challenge if you can!
This little cutie is perfect for the following challenges.

A little bit of Saturated Canary!

Here's something new, my first use of frantage. I love this stuff and I think everything will get frantage treatment from now onwards! I have coloured my Saturated Canary image with copics and the papers were free ones from a magazine ages ago. The ribbon was cheap stuff from lidl of all places! It's twisted together with the butterfly string of bead things and you can separate them! I also picked up another bargain this week......inktense pencils, half price at WH Smith. I know I have enough colouring mediums already, but I do like to experiment!
Thought I might enter this little beauty in to the the papertake weekly challenge, which is anything goes.

Jolly Holly!

Thought I'd join my lovely friends over at Craftbubble and take part in Lilian's Rudolph challenge. Don't faint peeps!

Sweet lady bug

This little ladybug is a fab saturated canary rubber stamp. I bought the papers, stamp and whimsy corner die from the stamp basket, not all at the same time, but over the past few months. The lady there, Janet, is so lovely and gives you a very personal service. Check out the fab blog too.
My image has been coloured with promarkers and the seam binding has been coloured with a dusky rose promarker so that it all co-ordinates. I have never done this before and I am very pleased with how it turned out!
I am entering this in to the saturated canary challenge which is set your creativity free.

New stitching challenge, real or faux.

There's a new challenge over at Di's digi designs this week! This time we want to see stitching real or faux. I have chosen to use Di's fab little Marvin the pirate image! He was perfect for my pirate obsessed 6 year old nephew. I have been singing this song, the whole time I was making him!
I am entering this Mr Cutey in to the following challenges.
