Motivet Sketch Challenge!

I love this wee Motivet image - and even better, i was lucky enough to WIN it!!  Yep, a while back i won the Motivet weekly draw for commenting - thanks again Motivet!!

I coloured the image with Prisma pencils, used Basic Grey papers, part of a verse stamp by Stampendous, a fuzzy brad by Creative Imaginations - but I'm afraid I do not remember who the ribbon, large snowflakes, snowflake trim and snowflake charm are by!!

Do you like his wee paper pierced boots - couldn't resist (thats a scrap of paper by Making Memories)!

I'm entering this card into the Motivet sketch challenge - and thats another christmas card made...phew!!

I'm also entering this into the Stampavie and More challenge as their theme this week is Christmas! bx

The Sugar Bowl Challenge 46

This week its Marlene's turn to create the sketch for The Sugar Bowl - and this is my entry!

I really need to get cracking with my christmas cards - don't want the panic setting in!! lol

I love this penguin couple - suitable for "old" couples and "new" couples!

I used Basic Grey papers, (part of a) sentiment by Stampendous, bling by Prima - sorry I can't remember where I got the 2 ribbons/trims!!

As always there is a FABULOUS prize on offer - too good to miss the chance really! bx

Crafty Creations - Fall or Halloween!

Halloween is almost upon us once more - so we have a very seasonal theme this week for you all at Crafty Creations!  Claire is sponsoring the prize this week and is offering some YUMMY MME goodies!!

After seeing this fab tutorial on Cosmo Cricket (thanks guys!!) I decided to have a lil go myself - and hey presto they're right - it IS easy and it IS addictive!!

I've made this lil treat bag from a 12x12 sheet of K & Co paper, used some Bo Bunny paper trims, and ready to go stickers by Bo Bunny and 7 Gypsies (bling, brads and ribbon from stash!).

I'm looking forward to seeing all your fab projects this week! bx

Crafty Creations - A Colour Recipe!

This week at Crafty Creations "our" Melissa has set a colour challenge for us all!!  She wants to see red, brown and green on our projects (you can have other colours but these 3 colours must feature).

Our sponsor this week is Stitchy Bear Stamps who kindly gave us 4 images to work with this week!  I loved this lil witch - she looks a bit sad but that makes her so adorable in my book!!

I coloured her with Prisma pencils, used some Basic Grey papers and MME (the scalloped edge), the tiny sentiment is cut from a Halloween sheet by 7 gypsies, the bat brad is by Making Memories. 

So that's it - i felt like doing something a little different this week - so I created a scene (like a proper drama queen!!).  Now......can the eagle eyed among you spot my mistake?....I started to type my 'fession but then I thought I'd see if anyone else spotted it....? 

I can't wait to see what you all come up with this week! bx

The Sugar Bowl - Tiet's Sketch!

Tiets has returned to the Sugar Bowl (yaaay) and she produced this awesome sketch!! I am usually very CAS - but i always admire the layers that Tiets adds to her when I saw this sketch i was determined to give it a go!!

So this is my take of the sketch - together with this cute girl and lots of yummy MME papers!!  I think the colours of the papers lend themselves to the optional theme of Autumn...maybe "she" is crossing her fingers in the hope that summer lingers on for a while...? lol

I coloured the image with Prismas; used an A Muse sentiment, used some 7 gypsies waxed thread for the stitches; added Papermania bling but can't remember where i recycled that raffia-type trim from!!

I'm also going to enter this card to the Cute Card Thursday theme which is "What's buggin' you?" - thanks to my lil butterfly!! bx

Crafty Creations - Show a Number!

This week at Crafty Creations Sharon is hosting her first challenge - she wants so see a number somewhere on your project!

We are sponsored by Sketching Stamper this week.  Each DT member was lucky enough to be able to choose an image to work with - I have to say it was a difficult decision (check out those pumkins, the pram  and the shoe!!) but I chose this image (any guesses who might get this lil "number"? lol)!

I coloured with Prisma pencils, used MME papers, Making Memories alpha's, the word Love is a stamp by Kim Hughes, Prima letters/numbers and Prima bling (twine unknown and the doily is from a restaurant!! lol)

Do check out the Sketching Stamper site for amazing inspiration - Chris's colouring is simply amazing!

My teamies have come up with some cool projects - please stop by and have a look! bx

Crafty Creations - A Sketch plus!

This week at Crafty Creations Jeanet created a fabulous sketch for us to use - but she added another 2 elements:

1.  you must use a rubber stamp on the project
2.  you must use lace or ribbon

I decided to use my gorgeous new LOTV christening stamp which i coloured with Prisma colours.  I used some Prima papers and flowers - also new!  The little beads on a stem are recycled from my cousins wedding stationery!!

I do hope you can join us this week - there is a fabulous $20 gift certificate to be won!!  My teamies have created a range of beautiful projects - you can see them here!! bx
