Friday Sketchers

Followed another great sketch over at Friday Sketchers for this card.
I actually dug out a very old Penny Black stamp for this as I all my cards recently have been made with digi downloads. I brought the swirly embossing folder today so had to use that :) Thank you for another fab sketch.

White on White

This week over at I ♥ Promarkers everything had to be white apart from the image. I have never done anything like this before so this was a bit of a challenge. Anyway here is my attempt.

Used the fab Kitty Katastrophe from Kenny K and coloured her with Promarkers. I made the little white flowers and added some punched leaves, butterfly and swirls.
Thank you for a fab challenge.

I am sooooo late with this for the I ♥ Promarker challenge which this week is a sketch. I am also using this for the Dottie's challenge, which I am even later with, they wanted a Christmas cards but with no traditional Christmas colours.

Embossing and a Sketch

This week I am really late entering the Kenny K challenge, I do not know where this week has gone!
The Kenny K challenge wanted some embossing and as I only brought myself a Cuttlebug last month everything is getting the stippled effect :)

For this card I followed another great sketch over at Friday Sketchers, used the fab Delores D'ammage from Kenny K and coloured her with ProMarkers. Papers were free with my Cuttlebug.
Thank you for stopping by :)

Travel & a sketch

This week at I ♥ Promarkers the theme is travel. I used a Charmed Cards & Crafts download from the Mikey collection and as my nephew has just put in for his driving test I will hopefully be able to use this card for him :)

Mikey is coloured with promarkers and the papers are from K&Co. I am also entering this card into the Friday Sketchers challenge as I used their sketch to make this card.
Thank you for stopping by :)

The Great Outdoors

This week over at Dotties World the challenge is to make a card with an outdoor theme. So after spending the weekend in the garden as it had been so lovelly, when I actually got round to making this card it was pouring down with rain!

I used Holly in the Garden for this card from the Holly & Madison collection and coloured her with promarkers. The papers are from English Paper Company (I couldnt resist going back to Osbornes and buying a few more of the £1.99 bargains). The sentiment is from Create with TLC. Thank you for stopping by :)

Myth & Magic

Oh wow what a theme. I could have made so many cards for this challenge at I ♥ ProMarkers but unfortunately I just do not have the time. Charmed Cards & Crafts recently brought out a new collection called 'Once Upon a Time' which fitted perfectly for this challenge and I have been dieing to purchase them so today I did :)

This is the first time I have made an easel card and struggled a bit trying to fit pieces in, but i'm pretty happy with the end result
Discovered easel cards aren't the easiest to photograph so took a few from different angles.
Images and sentiment are from Charmed Cards & Crafts and coloured with promarkers. Everything else is from the stash. Thank you for stopping by :)

On the Beach

This week over at Dottie's World they wanted a beach/vacation card so here is my attempt......
Have used one of the images from the Boy oh Boy collection and paper from the English Paper Company, which I brought yesterday from Osbornes for £1.99 for 24 12x12 sheets, Bargain!! Bits and pieces from the stash.
