I was lucky enough to be able to stamp this gorgeous gal out at a friends house; she is mostly coloured with the prismacolours/sansador technique. I LOVE her!
I've distressed the edges...these gorgeous K&Co papers also have a distressed "look" about them....now I see that I should've moved my paper strip/focal image up slightly to fill the gap...great how I see this when it's already made....!
I used a sketch of Beate's....quite a simple one...very easy to work with....I'll use it again me thinks!
I just wanted to mention a blog that I happened upon recently - I LOVE it! Take a little peek at this project. It's a Heidi Swapp package altered to make a "candy" gift. Unfortunately I don't understand the language, but I can (and DO!) drool at the creations...simply beautiful! bx

Not sure what you call this party "animal" but she looks like a lotta fun to me! I'm so glad to get her inked up....and the matching sentiment (both by Penny Black)! The sentiment would stretch quite a bit across a card so I stamped it onto shrink plastic to fit nicely into the little space!
I must say I particularly enjoy this challenge as I am a big fan of "cute". bx

The colour was set by the gorgeous Autumn Leaves paper, and the girliness definitely comes from the cute "girly" by Penny Black! It's quite bright and vibrant in real life! bx

I made this card using Ismaki's sketch no16 which I quite liked; Iused 4 of the K&Co Margo papers (which I love), and these little Daisy D flowers matched well I thought!
Thanks to Marlene I found out that Ila owned the sketch I used for my previous card - that was baaaad! I'll be more careful in future!
If anyone has any advice or comments about the prismacolor/sansador/paper stumps I'd be more than grateful! bx

The papers are My Minds Eye which I thought were ideal for a male card...yes, I'm still gushing about these papers!
I used one of Julee's sketches to create the card (actually last week's!!) - easy peasy! It's "simple" but I like it! bx

It's girly-girl on her space hopper (i remember we had a bright orange one of these years ago!) - another little woodware plate of stamps. What you can't tell from this photo is that I've coiled a little wire around a pencil and stuck it behind girly-girl to create some "bounce"; so when you touch her, she "boings"!
I got these little amuse notelets on sale recently - good opportunity to get them used before they gather dust! bx

I made this little card before I left, just with bits n pieces that were already out on my desk! I love this little Tilda...!
Now I need to go and get on with a few chores - yep....it's back to porridge! bx

The card is using CPS sketch no58 - yep, last week's sketch! Ahem! Anyway, it's using this gorgeous Tilda sent to me by Leonie (thanks Leonie!). I tried hard with my colouring....it's an ongoing struggle! heehee!! The gorgeous papers are K&Co.
This little Tilda was also kindly sent by Leonie! These papers are also from the same paper pack by K&Co - I love them!! This sketch is by Julee (wait for it...) and it's actually 2 weeks old!! I really liked the sketch though and liked how this turned out!
I'm going to enter this for Marte's blog candy challenge - "Make a card for a good friend - with the intention to show them how much they mean to you! Use something that makes you smile!" Why not have a go yourself...if you're not in, you can't win!!!!!!!!
