This week's card for Pear Tree Designs-Flowers!

It's challenge number 34 over at Pear Tree Designs this week and the theme is many as you like! Our sponsor this week is Robyn's Fetish and the DT were given some lovely digis to play with!

I chose to use this cute little bird..the digi's called a little bird told me...he was a joy to colour with my Promarkers. I decided to go for spring colours to go with the flowers on the digi...the papers are My Minds Eye Quite Contrary and I've used blue card to mat the layers. I added a lacy trim using my MS punch, and the flowers,ric rac, and pearls are from my stash. The sentiment is from Craftwork Cards.

I am also entering this card into a few other challenges:

Paperplay:Layer it up
Crafty Sentiments: My Favourite Things (My Minds Eye papers and flowers!)

My challenge card for Pear Tree Designs Challenge 33

I am hoping this card has now found it's way to Donna over at Pear Tree Designs...for some reason Yahoo decided not to send my card yesterday its not on the challenge blog yet :(

The challenge this week is Blue, which I hope I've covered with this card. I have had this Gorjuss stamp for a while but have never inked her up (terrible I know!), and I coloured her in with my Promarkers. The papers are a mix of My Mind Eye and Papermania and I have distressed the edges with my distressing tool. I added a flower from my stash and the sentiment is a Lili of the Valley stamp. The ribbon is a My Minds Eye one from my stash too.

I am entering it into a few challenges:
Crafty Catz- Forgotten/Unused stamp (never used this stamp!)
Crafty Pad- Girly
Stampin for the Weekend- Getting Warmed Up
One Stitch at a Time- Anything Goes
Paper Sundaes- Distressing

A simple but sweet birthday card!

I have been wanting to make some simple birthday cards to keep in my box for those moments when I need a card for one of my daughter's here is the first one.

I wanted to use one of these new stamps from Little Claire's, as they are so cute. I coloured this cutie in with Promarkers and teamed her up with some new papers from Papermania's Back to Basics pad. I followed a sketch saved on my laptop which worked well with the image. I added some highlights with Stickles and the flower is from my stash. The ticket at the bottom is from Pink Gem Designs and has been inked with some lilac ink. Voila....a simple but sweet card for any birthday that comes our way lol.

Creative Inspiration: Celebrate-it's a birthday card!
One Stitch at a Time: New-new stamp and new papers!
Crafty Pad: New-new stamp & new papers!

I mounted the image onto Nesties, and embellished the card with a flower and lace from my stash. The sentiment has been stamped using a Lili of the Valley set.

Another first Xmas card of 2011!!

I have decided not to leave all my Xmas crafting so late this year as it was quite a rush in December with preparing for the school fair and trying to get all the cards done for family and friends! Hopefully by starting in January, I should have quite a pile by next Christmas lol.

So here's my card....I have used this cute little digi called Snow Baby. I've had it for a while but just left it in a file, so had to use it. I've coloured him in with Promarkers and glittered up the fur trim with Stickles. The papers are from a freebie pack I downloaded ages ago and they have been inked around the edges. I have embossed the circle behind the image and used Nesties to mount the image & sentiment. I die cut some snowflakes from glitter card and used some snowflake gems from my stash. The sentiment is a Lili of the Valley one.

I am entering it into a couple of challenges:
Papertake Weekly: Cold and Frosty
ABC Christmas: A for Anything Christmas

A card to fit a few challenges-my mojo is back!!!

I've had a great week, got quite a few cards done...some to sell at a school fair and some to get my card box filled up for 2011! I have made the most of a quiet weekend to craft and colour to my heart's content!

This is one of the cards I made yesterday...and he fits quite a few challenges, which is fun! I have decided to use a Lili of the Valley stamp called Thomas...such a cutie! He's been coloured in with Promarkers and I've added some Stickles to the flowers. I followed a sketch I had saved on my computer and used some papers from a Wild Rose Studio pack,which I've distressed! I've embellished the card with some roses, Card Candy and a sentiment stamp from Lili of the Valley.
