Truly Scrumptious Challenge 10

What a lovely sketch Truly Scrumptious have given us to play with this week. Do you think it warrants another pixie? Of course it does! So, this time I have chosen Daisy, another beauty in the pixie world, available from Charmed Cards and Crafts (just in case you haven't got yours yet).

I have to admit I had a last minute disaster with this card. After colouring Daisy with my copics matting her onto cuttlebugged pearl card and Que Sera Sera Papers I used silicone to stick her on, it wasn't until I got the camera to take a pic I noticed the silicone had seeped through Arghhh! This has never happened before, so I had a bit of a mad panic and dowsed her with pixie dust. Not exactly how she was supposed to look but still beautiful I think.

I hope you all have a fab Friday.

Take care and TFL

Dottie's Sunday Challenge - Christmas!

well i'm sure you have guessed I am using another pixie for another challenge. For the Dottie's world Sunday challenge we were asked to make a Christmas card. After seeing Lou's gorgeous card I decided to use Holly myself and this is how my card turned out.

The holly wreath was from a free template by Dan - of My Crafty Life Blog, which I cut on robo using Bazzil Bling cs (used both ways for matt and bling effect). The paper behind Holly is a dovecraft christmas paper with a bit of laquer on the poinsettia flowers. The outer paper behind the wreath is a Basic grey - cupcake.

Although it's hard to see from the pic Holly also has some laquering on her wings and outfit. Ribbon and berries are from my stash. This card was great fun to do, I can see Holly being very popular this Christmas can't you?

Another pixie for Mojo Monday - Week 92

Hi folks,

I'm back again with another pixie/fairy card made from the Charmed download set, using the sketch on Mojo Monday's challenge.

This time I have used Forget-me-not as the card will be for my friend Anne who will be leaving work next Friday. I hope she likes it.

The papers are Dovecraft floral collection with a little glamour dust ( or should that be pixie dust) and yellow pearlidoodles added. The background paper that Forget me not is looking out of is a digi paper fron the digital scrapbook place. The sentiment is part of the charmed download set and the ribbon and butterfly is from my stash.

I think I will have to leave it there for tonight cos' my fingers seem to be typing there own letters, it's likely my brain has already gone to sleep Lol.

Night, night don't let the bed bugs bite.

Delightful downloads - Papertake Weekly Challenge

Hiya all,
have you got your Pixie download images from Charmed Cards and Crafts yet? I got mine early this morning and I couldn't wait to play. The images are just fantastic as are the sentiments to go with them. Well done, Lou and Karen you have come up trumps again!!!

So, without a challenge in mind (but now luckily it fits the bill for the Papertake Weekly challenge)I made a card from my new set (you will be spoilt for choice). This is Thistle...

I coloured her with copic markers, wc pencils, pearlidoodles (on the wings) and erm... glamour dust too.

My papers are LLB wild Rose cut with scalloped scissoors and an unknown sheet from my stash layered onto cream embossed paper. I made the flowers from oddments of paper layered up and pearlidoodled. The leaves were cut on my robo onto textured cs. Oh! and I dotted a bit of colour onto my lace with the copics too.

I hope you like her, have fun with yours.

Take care

Fathers Day / Charmed Challenge

this is a quick and late upload of my Fathers day cards, one of which is also from last weeks challenge over at Dotties World.
This card is my DH's from the girls.

George, is from CCC Bumper Christmas download set and as I was pushed for time I used the coloured image. The tools were cut on my robo using a template from the UKScrappers forum created by Sugar and Spice (thank you!). My backing paper is from K&Co's Que sera sera (just gorgeous). The circle sentiment is the fab work of Karen who kindly gave all CCC challengers free sentiments to use for these special cards (many, many thanks for that Karen!).

And my second quickie card is for my Dad. Again using Que sera sera paper (the same sheet as the card above), as the main image. Some times I think these papers are just too gorgeous to cover up, so I only added a little fisherman stamp, some ribbon and another of Karen's circle sentiments.

I hope all the fathers out there loved the cards they received and had a great day.
Take care

Mojo monday Challenge 89 - contest


Over at Mojo monday the challenge was another fab sketch to work with. This is my take on it.

I thought it would be good for my DD2's teacher, he has given her so much confidence this past year. I first had the idea to do a class of children, Lol but it was way too hard to get that many images masked and arranged.

Adorable Annie is in front, offering her gift with a Kars boy image and a Gorjuss girl stood at the back.

The whole card is a cut down A4 card so it is pretty big. Backed with some Basic grey paper, Bazzil bling CS cuttlebugged with swiss dots. As you can guess my mats and the apple were cut on my robo with a little ribbon to finish it off.

Hope he likes it...

Copic Challenge 16 & CCT Challenge 63

Hi Folks,
this is another two for one card challenge piece.
OOOOh! Have you ever worked on acetate?I love the look but OMG isn't hard to keep clean!

The Copic colour challenge asked us to use the colours RV11Pink, YO6Yellow and E39Leather. I didn't have the exact colours but used RV21,YO2 and YO8 with E35 for the leather.

The CCT challenge is nip and punch. you have to get your die cuts and punches out to use in your creation.
I don't have many of those so...I cut my own frame on the robo and matted it with some bazzil bling underneath.

As you can see I have used my Elegant Annie stamp (from Charmed cards and crafts), part of a Kars stamp for the swing seat and pearls for the ropes. The papers are K&Co wild raspberry with flowers and ribbon from my stash.

2 in 1 Copic Colour - Truly Scrumptious

here is another two challenges in one card.
The copic colour challenge was to use three colours in your creation, Cardinal, Pea green and Cool grey. The green is the only one of the three that I don't have so I used a mix of the ones I do.
Truly scrumptious asked us to make a card with more that one fold, that was fun to make but not to photograph after, Lol.
This is the best I could do....
The front of my card..

Lift the flap to see the adorable Annie stamped image.

Finally open the card to see the sentiment.
