Basic Grey challenge

I made this card for the challenge last week but haven't had time to blog since. The challenge was "embossing". I have used my Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder on one of the mats. The stamp is from Scrapmagasinet, courtesy of Bunny- Zoe Crafts. She is coloured with Promarkers and the papers are from Basic Grey Lime Rickey.

Scrapbook Sisters book stand

This project is an online class with Scrapbook Sisters. I made the actual stand a few weeks ago but only managed to get the pages finished last night. All papers and embellishments were sent in the kit from Scrapbook Sisters so I'm afraid I can't give you any details. All the photos are from this year's holiday- the first holiday photos I have scrapped this year. Hoping to get some more time to craft/bloghop in the next few days.
thanks for stopping by

The Sugar Bowl challenge 19

Finally I have managed a challenge card! The challenge was a fab sketch from Marlene with the added requirement to use pink and brown.I had to rotate the sketch to fit my image in. She is one of the Gorjuss girls from Sugar Nellie which has been coloured with Promarkers. Papers are Bittersweet by Basic Grey and the glimmer dots are from stash. I have made the little flower using a small retro flower punch. I love this image so thank you very much to my lovely friend Andrea who I got lots of fab stamped images from. Twas nice to get some colouring in time :0) Here's hoping there's more to follow
thanks for looking

Busy, busy, busy.

Have managed to squeeze in some necessary cards this week and here they are. The first two are using the Popcorn Bear cd's. Two of my cousins celebrating their 18th birthday's this month so I thought they'd appreciate this little guy.

This card was for a friend's birthday yesterday so I can blog it now. Not sure where the image is from but the background is a Tim Holtz stamp and I have used Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink to distress the card.
This card is made using a lovey Tilda image from my good friend Andrea. I have coloured her with my Promarkers and matted her on some Bazzill. The papers are My Mind's Eye, Bloom and Grow. Very much a rush job.
Must apologise for lack of blogging and that I haven't managed to blog hop much recently. It has been hectic but I hope to catch up soon.
Thank you for stopping by and for any comments you might leave
