Happy Birthday Elephant

Good morning crafty friends.

I'm sorry I am not around posting and commenting as much.  I am extremely busy at the moment as I am helping my son is preparing for his SATs exams in May and he has so much homework and stress with it!  So with that and work I really am strapped for time.  It will all hopefully calm down soon.

I have a card to share....


This cutie is from Pink Gem Designs and is called Ella with Bouquet.  I have coloured her in with ProMarkers.  The papers are Galleria from The Ribbon Girl (the ribbon is also from there).  My flowers are a mix of Wild Orchid Crafts and the Ribbon Girl.  Gems are from the Works.  The die-cut in the left hand corner is from a die-cutting magazine my fella bought for me.

Challenges:-

Allsorts Challenge - Bring on the Bling
A Snowflakes Promise - Anything Goes
Corrosive Challenge - Anything Goes
Crafting from the Heart - Anything Goes
Crafty Friends - Animals or Birds
Digi Choosday - Anything Goes

Happy Valentine's Day...

.... to you all.  Hope you all got a little spoilt.  I got some beautiful craft storage off my fella and a card and I got my son a Valentine's teddy and large marshmallow lollipop lol.

Here is my card to my fella Col...



I got the idea for this card from one of my magazines (Cardmaking and Papercraft) and to make it you had to buy expensive dies which I don't have so I made the most of what I do have.  One of the dies was a rectangle stitch die.  I just cut a rectangle piece of card and punched little holes all around (using a ruler) and a punchy tool.  Took ages, but was worth it.  I die-cut the centre with a circle die and the grass was made from an icicle die from Joy Crafts.  My cute little image is from the Digi Stamp boutique and is coloured with ProMarkers.  I did enjoy making this!

Allsorts - Hearts and/or Flowers
Crafting from the Heart - Anything Goes
Crafting with an Attitude - Anything Goes

Magical Floral Bubbles

Good morning crafty friends.  I went out for a stroll with my son Brandon this morning and the weather is lovely.  The tiny bit of snow we had has gone and the sun is out.  There's a bit of a nip in the air but it is refreshing so can't complain.  Hope those of you who have had a cold snap (and there's quite a few of you) have coped with it and those that still have very cold temperatures, stay warm :)

I have a cute card to share today....


This cutie is called Magical Floral Bubbles and is from Lacy Sunshine Digis.  I decided to once again do funky hair.  I chose blue and tried my best to make sure it didn't look like a blue rinse lol. (My fella pointed that out to me).  She is coloured in with ProMarkers and the papers are LOTV NitWits.  Some of the flowers and the ribbon are from the Ribbon Girl and the rest of the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.  My sentiments are LOTV stamps and the gems are from The Works.  The swirl leaves die is a Cheery Lynn die and the oval die is from Spellbinders.

Challenges:-

Brown Sugar - Rhinestones and/or Ribbon
Corrosive Challenge - Anything Goes
Crafting from the Heart - Anything Goes
Crafty Friends - Anything Goes
Creative Inspirations - Anything Goes
Creative Moments - Anything Goes

I know, my pic is really bright lol.  This image from Art By Miran was an absolute joy to colour.  She is called Tulipa.  I usually do brown or black hair, but decided to do something a little different.  Hope you like.  I have used ProMarkers to colour her in.
