Very quick post tonight. I needed to rush through making this card tonight so I could enter it in the Papertake Weekly challenge.
The gorgeous image is Lily Lemon from Kratin Kimmie and the sentiment comes with her. I am so loving KK stamps right now and they just released another great selection so I need to save some pennies!!T eimage is coloured with Promarkers, papers are Basic Grey and the cardstock is Stampin' Up!
Hope you are having a nice Saturday, I'm looking forward to a relaxing evening catching up with some programmes and a nice glass of wine. Then cropping tomorrow woo-hoo!!!!!!!!!!!

I have had a poorly child this week so there has been no time for getting inky. He is better and back at school today, hurrah! That meant I got time this afternoon to ink up another of my new Kratin' Kimmie stamps. This little guy is Curtis and the sentiment comes with him.
Papers are MME La Paperie and I have blended Antique Linen DistressInk around the image. All edges have been distressed and inked with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.
Very quick post from me tonight. Sugar Nellie challenge over on Facebook this week was to make an easel card so I had a go at my first twisted easel
The image is from the Simply Sassy range available from Sugar Nellie, papers are Basic Grey. The sentiment is SU! and roses from Wild Orchid Crafts. The layout of the card follows the sketch over at this weeks Basic Grey challenge
I can't believe it is Friday tomorrow! I need to blog these cards as the time is running out to enter the challenges. Please scroll down to see the second card for Wild Orchid, 7 Kids and Kraftin Kimmie challenges
This card I made at the weekend for the Fresh Brewed Challenge, then realised I had used the wrong sketch doh! This little cutie is Daisy the Elephant and you can find her to buy HERE
The papers, flowers and flower centres are all Prima.D I love the bright colours of these papers and those sprarkly centres are just gorgeous. Daisy has been coloured with Promarkers.
My second card is using one of my newly acquired Kraftin Kimmie stamps
This is the gorgeous Andrea Acorn. I coloured her with Promarkers and then used my airbrusher to colour the background - love it, thank you hubby for buying me it!
The beautiful papers are Basic Grey, ribbon and button are SU! and the flowers are Prima.
This card is entered into the following Wild Orchid Challenge - sketch 7 kids - square card Kraftin Kimmie - recipe challenge
When I saw the tissue box tutorial on Split Coast Stampers I could not wait to try it. Friends of mine were making these ages ago but I never got around to it. You can make them with mountboard, cardstock or heavyweight patterned paper.
I have used cardstock from Stampin' Up! and embossed the panels with a Cuttlebug folder, the name of which escapes me at the moment. If you want to know though, just e-mail me or ask when leaving a comment and I can get back to you. The beautiful image is Verity from the Simply Adorables range at Sugar Nellie. These images are such a joy to colour and there are more out soon - I can't wait! Here's a clsoer look at her
I was making this as a gift for someone but have decided to keep it for myself and make some more to give away.

First of all apologies for the squinty photo, I tried to straighten it but it did not want to play!! This gorgeous image is Goldilocks from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps. I just love colouring her hair!! The DP is MME La Paperie, inked with red chalk ink. The plain and glitter cardstock are from stash and the sentiment comes along with Goldilocks. It also looks squint on the photo but not in real life- think my camera has been on the G & Ts!!!
Here is a closer look at the image
I am entering this card into the following challenges
My second card uses one of the wonderful Simply Sassy stamps from Sugar Nellie. This lovely lady is called Windswept and I spent ages trying to get her hair right - needing more practice methinks but not bad for the first attempt.

I punched down the edge with a Martha Stewart punch. The roses are Wild Orchid Crafts and the ribbon and pearls are from my stash.

Finally I got time to colour one of my latest purchases from Sugar Nellie. This cutie is Joy, from the Simply Adorables range. I have coloured her with Promarkers. The paper and cardstock are Stampin' Up! and the sentiment is from The Greeting Farm. I inked around the So Saffron cardstock with green chalk ink and stamped the sentiment in the same ink.

I would also like to thank Heather for very kindly giving me an award. Heather is so talented so I was very touched that she thought to award this to me
There are a couple of conditions for the award.
You have been TAGGED and want to participate? Then create a post where you post the 'LOVE BLOG' image. You should also blog the persons link that gave you the award and inform her/him that you accept the award. You can then choose 3 - 5 favourite blogs which you also link in your post, then each blogger will inform you that they have been tagged
The aim of this action is that we bring unknown, good blogs to light,so I would ask you not to blog fellow bloggers that already have 3,000 followers - heaven knows I ain't anywhere near 300, never mind 3000 lol!
I have used the gorgeous Lovebirds image and sentiment from Fresh Brewed Designs which I have coloured with Promarkers.
