Just Magnolia Challenge

Great sketch this week and fabulous DT cards, go check them out, link is in my blog roll. I have used one of the Tilda images that I stamped while visiting my lovely friend Andrea. Have got loads to keep me going for many more challenges to come. :0)
Tilda is coloured with Promarkers, the papers are from Jesse Edwards range for Papermania. Mats were cut with my Nestabilities and I added some Rhinestone Stickles to highlight pattern on the papers and give it some sparkle.Ribbon, flowers and shimmery dots are from stash.
Thanks for looking and for any comments you leave

Time for more Sugar

The Sugar Bowl challenge this week is to follow the sketch and use "lace".
I have used one of the Gorjuss images and coloured her with Promarkers. The papers are My Mind's Eye, Wild Asparagus. Almost forgot about the lace so had to use my Martha Stewart Doily Lace punch at the last minute, hope this counts. The flowers and glimmer dots are from stash.

Just Magnolia/Sketch Saturday challenges

Hurrah, I managed to make a card. This week's challenge from Just Magnolia is "Bright & Zingy" so I have used papers from the Basic Grey Lime Rickey collection. Tilda is coloured with Promarkers and the gems were from my stash. I have followed Sketch Saturday's sketch apart from the sentiment which I have yet to add.

Some more Sugar

Another fabulous sketch over at The Sugar Bowl. I have used another of the gorgeous Christmas Manga images, coloured with Promarkers. The papers are again from the Kars Christmas pad. The flowers are punched using a Stampin' Up! 5 petal punch and the small flower gems are from my stash. I was in a rush so when I stamped the sentiment(SU as well) I have misplaced it slightly but I didn't have time to fix it as I am off for a few days with my boys, leaving hubby home alone.
Hope you like the card, see you later in the week and thanks for stopping by

In the Sugar Bowl again

I finally got to ink up one of my Christmas Mangas from Sugar Nellie. Apart from the sketch challenge there was an additional requirement of "paper piecing". I coloured the image with Promarkers and then stamped the image again on patterned paper and cut out the dress. This was then placed onto the coloured image. The papers are from Kars Xmas Collection.Flowers, ribbon and glimmer dots are from stash.

Two cards, two challenges

Ages and ages since I have managed to do Friday Sketchers so here is my card. I have used an image from Daisy May and coloured her with Promarkers. The papers are from the Eerie paper pad by Basic Grey, am loving these.The little pumpkin charm is attached using some chain and jump rings. Flower, spacer, brad, chain and charm from stash.

This card is for the Truly Scrumptious sketch and I have again used one of the adorable Halloween images from Daisy May. I've coloured her with watercolour pencils but the paper wasn't the best for this so it's a bit patchy. The papers are again Basic Grey Eerie.
Must go now and upload the new Stampin Up! book for 2009/2010 to my blog. Lots of lovely new products to tempt us.
