It's Penny's time!

It's time for another weekly challenge at Penny's Challenges! 

The theme is 'spots and stripes' and our fab sponsors is 


I was given this cute little monkey to use



I coloured him up with my copic markers and added a flower and pearl to finish it off. I wasn't sure what to put on the outside of the card yet. I was thinking of putting a gift card inside to a restaurant and putting something like ' I was going to cook you a meal for your birthday ...' and on the inside ' but I wanted you to live to see another one!'

 Yep, a not so inside joke about my delicious cooking.

Anywho, the challenge runs for one week.Go check out the blog to see the DT creations and who our other sponsor is **it's someone new!

It's Melonheadz Time

It's time for another great challenge at Melonheadz Friends!

I just love Nikki's images and found this one in my stash of goodies. It comes in a cute bundle called 'We love frogs' found here


The challenge is 'Die Cuts' so I pulled out my big shop and got cutting! I think this card is hilarious and since the digi was precoloured it came together in a snap.

You can check out the challenge blog here
and you can check out Nikki's shop here.

The challenge runs for two weeks and I'll be by to see what you've made :)

It's Digi Sketch time

Head on over to the Digi Sketch blog where the theme is 'Love is Love'. As always there is a sketch to follow.

Our sponsor is Dr. Digi and I got to use this fab digi for my card.


I coloured him up with my copic markers and added a sentiment from my stash ( sorry no label for the artist on that) I added a scallop punch to the left and a heart on the top corner to add a bit of detail.

The challenge runs for two weeks, we'd love to have you join us :)

It's Penny time!

Head on over for another fun challenge at Penny's challenge.



This week it's 'embossing' and our fab sponsor is Sparkle N' Sprinkle

Here is the card I made


This image was precoloured so it was easy to assemble. The background was embossed with my SU big shot. I added pearls to finish it off.
I'm not sure the colour is the best for a sympathy card, it almost looks like a wedding card-maybe I'll change it. I think I am just so sick of the blah outside, I wanted colour :)

Anywho, the challenge runs for one week. Check out the DT cards and play along here

See you next time

Lacy Sunshine Challenge

It's challenge time at the Lacy Sunshine blog!

The challenge is have a heart, so in keeping with my Christmas cards I used the perfect image


I just love all the hearts on her wings and, even her wand is a heart :)
I think I did a good job of blending the challenge with the 'hearts'.

I coloured her with my copics, and used washi tape ( polka dots), I added a button with cord and a heart to go with my sentiment.

Thanks for stopping in :)

Penny's challenge time!

It's a fav or fancy fold challenge at Penny's this week. 

I chose to use one of my fav Christmas time folds-a gift card. It's super easy to make and you can get about 3 per 12 x 12 sheet with left overs :) 

I used our sponsor 
Due to the new EU regulations digis are not available at present but that Crafty Sentiments is trying to find a way to still be able to sell them

Here is my card
Here is the outside front. It measures just slightly higher than a gift card


Here is the back. The brads are attached behind the patterned paper so no fingers are poked when opened.
Here it is extended -the gift card goes on the other side attached with glue dots.
As you can see it's really easy to make. Measure your gift card and fold in the top and bottom. Cut off the corners to make the top and attach a brad (through a circle). Do the same on the bottom (notching it out-you can use the bottom of a square punch for that) To attached the string simple wrap around once and knot. 
Quick easy way to present a gift card :)

The challenge at Penny's runs one week. Can't wait to see what you create :)

Time to Clear it Out!

It's an 'anything goes' challenge at the Clear it Out blog.

We have a new sponsor
Sami Stamps


Here is a card I made using 'holding you'


I just adore this stamp. I am going to be an Auntie again in March and we know it's going to be a boy. My little nephew will be joining such a fantastic family, I am so excited for them :)

My stash item is those blue flowers, I bought them on clearance at Michaels a while back. I also notice I need to fix my bow-eek! The sentiment I had stashed with no name ( I think maybe TLC?)  and of course I coloured it up with my copics.

The challenge runs for one week. Please pop by and see what the other DT members have made-there cards are gorgeous!!!!!

See you tomorrow
