It's time for Ice-Cream....!

Ooooops...i'm quite late adding my card for the new theme at Crafty Creations.....just spent the day celebrating the "end of year" with my nephews and their mates!! it's become something of a tradition to party now!! I'd even arranged for our neighbour to come around in his ice-cream van...and that leads me nicely to my card....
...the new theme at Crafty Creations is Ice Cream and Cakes! Yummy!! I knew right away that i wanted to use this cute image by Sugar Nellie....a mix of papers by MME and October Afternoon....the sentiment is by Kim Hughes, a Prima flower, scrap of ribbon and a pearl (unknown) finish it off!
Hope you can join in with the challenge this week, as always there's a fab prize on offer for one lucky winner! Happy Summer everyone!! bx

Sugar Bowl challenge 37!

I finally got some time to join in The Sugar Bowl's latest sketch challenge (optional theme of girly and feminine).
I chose this un-inked beauty and brought her to life with some Prisma colour. I used some BG papers, a scrap of ribbon by Making Memories, some yummy Prima lace, BG pearls and brads by unknown!! I haven't added a sentiment yet - I'll do that when its needed! bx

Lets See You Shine!

This week it's the turn of Jenn to set the challenge at Crafty Creations and she wants to see us shine!! You can use anything sparkly on your project - glitter, gems, stickles the choice is yours!

I had been itching to ink up this Tilda and thought she'd be perfect for this challenge as those bubbles could take lots of stickles!!

I chose these MME papers as they are already embossed and sooo glittery! To take a further sparkly step I added a border of these sparkly "pearls" the result is one sparkly card!!
There's a fab prize on offer from Fresh Brewed Designs so I hope you get the chance to shine with us this week!! bx

It's a Stitch Up!

It's time for another challenge at Crafty Creations - and this time it's set by meeeee!! I just kept the challenge nice n simple this time....the challenge is "It's a Stitch Up"!! You simply need to add some stitching to your project...which can be sewn, drawn, rub-on''s your choice!
We were generously sponsored by Whimsy stamps and I chose this cutie. I thought this lil bear looked like it was flying, so I cut it out and adhered it to acetate so that it hovers!!

I used My Mind's Eye papers, an A Muse sentiment, a tiny Prima flower and a lil pearl in the centre. As I cut out the image I lost the swirly background that comes with it, so I used the same kind of "doodle" around my edges. Can you see my "stitches" (double click for a better view)? I used green embroidery thread to hand stitch 3 "kisses" to the left of my sentiment!!

I hope you get the chance to join us this week...there is a fabulous prize up for one lucky winner!! bx

Childs Play!

This week it's the turn of Deena to set the challenge at Crafty Creations Challenges.....she would like to see some "Child's Play"!!!

This week the sponsor is Meljen's Designs - and the DT had the pleasure of using some of her adorable digi designs on our projects this week!! I have used "Dolly" to decorate my "treat bag" which I'm sure any child (big or small!!) would love!!

Dolly is surrounded by stitches and hearts but I chose to cut her out; she fit just beautifully around my I adapted her stitches and doodled them around the edges of the bag.

I've used some more October Afternoon papers from the "Fly a Kite" range which I think suit Dolly!! A felt button and 2 teeny "button" brads all by Making Memories finished the project!

Hope you find time for some "Child's Play" this week! bx

Happy F-Arrrgher's Day!

With a lil snatched time here, a few scraps there I managed to make this card over the past couple of days!!

I used pirate Edwin and stamped out "a play on words" for my sentiment!! The papers are by MME and Jenni Bowlin, can't remember who that skull n cross bones brad is by (sorry!!)!

Luckily enough my card fits into a couple of challenges:

Friday Sketches - thanks for the fab sketch girls

Spoon Full of Sugar - Celebrations

Cute Card Thursday - colour combo (black, blue and orange)
Stampin' for the Weekend - Make some-one smile or cheer them up! Hope dad smiles at this one!! bx

Colour Splash!

And so it's time for another Crafty Creations Challenge! My teamie Georgia would like to see us use "Black and White with a splash of Red" - a very elegant colour combination!

I created this gift bag with the chosen colours - and can tell you it was much admired by the recipient!!

I used some Doodlebug paper, gorgeous Prima felt to add some texture, and a mixture of flowers from Heidi Swapp and Prima (sorry I can't remember who the gemstone brad is by)

Please pop over to the Crafty Creations blog to see all the other fab projects created this week, and details of the wonderful prize on offer!! bx

The Bare Essentials!

I am so swamped at the minute my craft time has had to take a back seat...but I did have to make time to create a card for my niece who is making her first communion this saturday!

It's deliberately left quite simple because of the I think it fits into Cute Card Thursdays theme of "No Designer Paper" - thats quite a challenge girls for all us paper lovers!! lol bx
