Friday Sketchers 58

This is my take on this weeks challenge on Friday Sketchers. The stamp is one of my favourites - a Sugar Nellie called Fragile Beauty from Funky Kits. The papers are a mixture of Scenic Route, Daisy D and MME. I decided to try stamping onto Kraft instead of white and like the different effect.

Tilda and Friends ATC - 3d

I decided to make an ATC today for a change and used the challenge on the Tilda and Friends ATC Challenge Blog for inspiration. So here is a 3d ATC. I thought the 'ribbon' looked a bit like a fence so sat Tilda on the top. As usual I used my copic ciaos to colour her in.

CCT - 66

Here is my card for this weeks challenge on Cute Card Thursday this week. The challenge was to use wheels and I didn't have any stamps with wheels on so decided to go and look for a digi stamp and coincidently found the same one Wendy used on her DT card. It was from Digistamp Boutique and it was really easy so I may be visiting there again.

The Star is a Stamps Away stamp and both images were coloured in using my copics. The papers are BG Archaic backed with coordinations card stock. I also added some large staples using my new woodware stapler. Finally I have a 'male' card in my stock of cards!!

Sugar Bowl - 13

This is my entry for this weeks Sugar Bowl Challenge.

The 'ribbon' (not sure what to call it) was a present from a UKS team mate Fluv and the papers are some scraps of October Afternoon that were lying around. The spacer on the flower was a new addition to my stash today - thanks Lorraine!

CCT 65

This is my design for this weeks challenge on Cute Card Thursday. The challenge was to use a tag so I adapted a design I have used before.
This is the tag and there is a pocket behind the yellow card for putting some cash in.

Both the images are Gorjuss girls coloured in with copics.

The challenge this week on Cute Card Thursday is to use a quotation. I received a book of quotations as part of a swap this week so I used one for this card. The image is one of my magnolias coloured in with my copics.

TPE - 18

This weeks challenge on The Pink Elephant is to use the colours pink, brown and white so when this perfect paper and embellishments arrived as part of a kit swap I am in, I just had to use it. Gorjuss girl image was coloured using my copics - E50,E00,E31,RV000,RV02,RV06.

Gogo Getaway Part 3

This layout was done for the make and take on Friday evening. The frame was a hybrid element. In case you can't read them the words down the side are: beautiful, energetic, cute, kind, young. It isn't a great photo as the cardstock is white and there is even faux stitching around all the edges,

Gogo Getaway Part 2

These were the 2 layouts I did for Fiona Beckman's class. There were 2 options for the class and enough papers etc to do both of the layouts so that is what I did. The photos were from a visit by my brother and nephew last year.

Gogo Getaway Part 1

Last weekend I went to Gogo Getaway in the UK. It was a great weekend especially as there were so many people there from last year to catch up with again. Once again I went with Sue and as usual she was great company.

I created lots of layouts both in classes and for sketch challenges so here is one for starters.

My favourite class from the weekend was the workshop by Mary-Anne Walters where I created this wall hanging.

Cute Card Thursday 63

The challenge on Cute Card Thursday is to use punches and die cuts. So I cut the background shape and flower using my lovely Slice. The papers are American Crafts which I received as part of a kit in a swap I recently did on UKS.

I coloured the magnolia stamp using my copics.
