So, my exciting news is.....Lexie asked me to be on the DT for the challenge blog! So excited! 

So without further babbling from me, here is my 1st DT project for Scribble and Scrap!! I say project as it isn't a card! 

I made some bookmarks using vintage blossom . I cant take any credit for the idea as I got it from watching the Saturated Canary You Tube Channel. I loved the idea as soon as I saw it and thought it was fab for this little flower! I used giant lolly pop sticks and have also now got some giant paper clips so will be making some more of that version too! They are fab little gifts to add in with a card or to give to a teacher! 

I coloured the flowers in using copics and used spellies plain circle dies to cut out the images and card stock. The sticks are stuck to the images using pinflair glue. The other side of the bookmark has the same image on but it would be very easy to use different digi's for the images. This is also a fabarooney way of using up scraps of cardstock that we all have tons of that we don't want to throw away! lol

So what you waiting for???? The challenge's are always going to be Anything goes so they are so easy to join in with. Also, if you're on Facebook, why not pop over to the Scribble and Scrap Fb Page for a gab!

Welcome to Friday the 13th and Heather Valentin's alter ego Lady Heather is about! Lots of new dark digi's to be had today so go take a look in the store!! Heather's Lady Heather Character is about celebrating all things dark! 

For those of you wondering what has happened to the sunshine-y digi's we know and love Heather for, they will be back this weekend after the 13th!! Her dark Lady Heather just pops up to to play every now and then! mwahahaha!!

My DT card was made using Cemertarie!

Also took some pics as I was going along making her up!

 I used copics to colour her in :- V12, V15, V17, V09, YG21, YG13, YG25, YR04, YR07, YR09, N3, N5, N7, N9, B91, B95, B97
 The orange cardstock was from my stash. the purple patterned paper is from the Doodlebug Halloween paper pack. The green and black patterned paper if from Echo Park.
 I added a skull and cross bones charm, sticking it down with pinflair glue gel. The sentiment was I think from Gingers House free.

Lastly I took a white paper flower and coloured it orange with copic marker YR18. Once dry, I used a narrow ended wet glue to coat the edges of the petals and then dipped the rose in black ultra fine glitter. I finished it off with 2 punched black leaves using the Martha Stewart punch.

Hope you like my card using Cemetarie. She is very out of my comfort zone as I am a very pink girl!! lol I enjoyed working with her though and I'm pleased with how she turned out! Hope you stop by the other Sunshine Girls blogs for lots more inspiration.

Just Inspirational Challenges - Beccys Place

Hello Bloggers

Well the owner Kelly  and her 2nd in command Kate have been having a think about how to make the challenges more appealing and to entice more of you to enter etc etc and they decided that instead of having an inspirational photo for every challenge we would sometimes use one and other times use a photo of something that you must use in your creation, for example this weeks photo is of ribbons which means you must have ribbons on your make somewhere.

I used one of the new memory box Christmas dies for the snowflake and added some pearls.

I also covered all the white parts of the little snow girl and the snow mum's clothes with Deco art crystal ultra fine glitter to add a bit of sparkle.
