Just Inspirational Challenges - Delicious Doodles

Time for team B's new challenge over at Just Inspirational Challenges blog and our lovely sponsor this time is Delicious Doodles with a fab prize of 4 digi's up for grabs! 

The photo to use for the inspiration for this challenge is

I took the inspiration for my card by using the theme I felt the picture represents which is Steampunk. It was way out of my comfort zone as I am not a steampunky kinda girl! So hope you like it.

I used copics to colour the image. E000, E00, E11, V12, V15, V17, V09, Y32, Y35, Y32, T1, T3, T5, T7.
I used Marianne clock die which I inked to give it a bit of a tattered look, cheery lynn corner die, spellies classic plain circle and classic scalloped die. I added a metal corner embellishment to the image and also dotted some gold pearls around the card. The sentiment was a freebie from a website yonks ago but I can't remember where :/ will keep looking for it and link it when I find it! 

Thanks for stopping by, why not stop by the other DT girls blogs for some more stunning inspiration.

Creative Creations Challenges #12

Time for our next challenge over at Creative Creations Challenges Blog and our theme this time is Anything but a square, shaped cards! Our lovely sponsors this time are

who are giving away a very generous prize of a $25 voucher to their store.

So without further ado, here is my DT card for the challenge. I used Circus Clown Owen digi stamp from the PND store.

I coloured Owen with copics and used a 8x8 scalloped circle card blank. The backing papers were all from my scraps box and were all cut using spellbinders classic circles dies. Owen was cut using an xcut scalloped oval die. The balloon die cuts are from sizzix cupcake stamp and die set and the sentiment was cut using Tattered Lace All Occasion Sentiment dies. I have added self adhesive pearl stars and gemstone stars around the card and a rhinestone bow to the thread I used as the strings on the balloons. Last but not least, I added 2 white paper hydrangeas that I had coloured with copics and added a sparkly gemstone to the centres. Not a square or rectangle in sight!! well, except for the envelope! lol

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you like Owen. Why not stop by the other DT girls blogs for some more fantastic inspiration and good luck!!

Challenge #11 at Lacy Sunshine!

Time for another new challenge over at the Lacy Sunshine Challenge Blog. Our theme is always Anything Goes from now on so its super easy to join in  and win some fan digi stamps from Heather's shop.

Here is my DT card for the challenge using Toffee Apple Sticky Wings, she's so sweet! 

She was coloured with copics (didn't write them down *slaps hand!) The patterned papers are from my stash as are the paper blossoms I used. I added 2 sparkly rhinestone dazzlers to the flowers to add a bit of bling and have added gems in various places around the card. The sentiment was typed in word and printed off, thought it suited the image perfectly! I covered the toffee coating on the apple in Glossy Accents to make it stand out and look very sticky and gooey!! lol I also used the Martha Stewart 3 in 1 butterfly punch and dotted them around the card to add extra embellishment and carry on the theme of the wings!

I struggled getting a good picture of the card for some reason with the flash, I kept getting glare on the piccy so below is another piccy without the flash, not sure which is best to be honest! lol 

Hope you like her! Can't wait to see your entries into the challenge and don't forget as always there is a freebie up for grabs on the blog so that there is no excuse not to play along!

Happy Birthday Mum xxxx Miss You

Bit of a sombre post from me today. Today would be my mum's 67th birthday. I lost my mum 5 years ago on the 16th July coming. I miss her so much, more now than ever and a few weeks ago I was having a day where she was on  my mind all day so I decided to make her a birthday card in her memory. 

I used her favourite colours pink and green and also added flowers and butterflies, she loved gardening and was always pottering around in her garden with our Westie Robbie always in her shadow! 

She used to love the crafty things I made and always let me send for stuff and get it delivered to her house so hubby didnt know!! lol

Love you mum xxxxx

Also been looking through my old piccies and came across one of me and mum sun bathing by a caravan on holiday one year! Reminds me of me and my little girl now x x Heres my gorgeous mum and me aged about 7ish! Many moons ago!! 

The digi is from the very talented Heather Valentin's Lacy Sunshine shop.

CCC Challenge #11

Time for our next challenge at Creative Creations Challenges Blog and our theme this time is For Dad. Our fabby sponsors for this challenge are Indigo Blu! 

For my DT card for this challenge, the wonderful Indigo Blu gave us some stamps to work with and I used the moustache set. Here is my card

Now, as my card may show, this was way out of my comfort league! I am very much a digi stamp girl! But I really did enjoy getting mucky with my Distress Inks! The stache and the sentiment are both from the stamp set, and the papers we're from my stash (!) bum bum!!  :p  I inked around the edges of the main 6x6 card blank and all the papers I used with Aged Mahogany and Tumbled Glass Distress Ink pads using the hand tool. I also added 4 pearl white card candy to the corners which were also slightly inked with the same DI colours.

Hope you like my card and good luck with our challenge! Why not stop by the other DT girls blogs for some more fab inspiration.
