The theme this week over at DU2DS is GLITTER! I love glitter but it get s everywhere lol.
I have been a bad blogger lately and have not had time to enter any challenges or leave any comments, hopefully I can get back into the swing of it soon. I love this digi from Sandra Dry, she is called Holly, very apt for a Christmas card hey? I coloured her with Promarkers and then added Stickles Glitter to her coat and hat. The background is a download from Crafty Designz, I just resized it to fit my card added some glitter to the leaves on the tree and some flowersoft snow to the window ledge. The Christmas tree in the window is a rub on that you add glitter to. the sentiment is from a Forever Friends decoupage sheet.
Cant wait to visit your Blogs to see all of your Glittery Creations!
This week at the Passion for Promarkers challenge Blog there is a colour challenge Forest Green & Poppy. Using only 2 colours is hard work! how do I get the shading? well I used the foredt green over the poppy red and then went over it again with the poppy red to blend. I used the blender pen to take out some of the colour on the boots for the hi lighted area.

Yellow Orange & Black or White is the theme this fortnight over at DU2DS Friday Challenge This was quite a challenge for me, having to choose an image that would lend itself to this colour combo. As it is nearly Halloween and the colours suited this theme I went with a Halloween card and the goth dragon from Dustin Pike jumped out at me, so here is my card. We are ignoring the bit of green that sneaked in with the pumpkin LOL. I look forward to visiting your Blogs to see how you get on with the Dare!

this card is my very late entry into the Stamptacular Sunday Challenge 24 where there is a sketch to follow and a fab prize up for grabs.
I have used a pink gem stamp coloured with promarkers. The acents and sentiment are all rub on's. I have used a holly leaf punch and gems instead of flowers.
Its Challenge 21 at Dare U2Digi Stamp and this week we have a sketch to follow. As usual we need to see a digi stamp on your entry. The challenge runs for two weeks so plenty of time to enter. I will look forward to seeing your fab creations, here is my take on the sketch.
The image is a digi stamp from The Crafters Kitchen and the proceeds go to the Royal Marsden. I coloured it with promarkers and added glitter for a little Bling! The DP is Making Memmories and the flowers have been made with sizzix flower stamps stamped on coordinating paper, cut out shaped and then inked and glittered. Hope you all have a lovely crafty weekend xx
Secret Crafter wants to see hearts and flowers for their challenge 48. I have another baby card to show. the heart is above the "girl" in the sentiment wording, the flowers are easy to see. The baby is a download cut out with circle scalloped nesties and the DP is Making Memories. I have also used Fiskars lace punch.
This week we would like to see blue and green with either white or cream. As usual there has to be a Digi Stamp used. I have used this cute dragon from Dustin Pike. I have coloured him with promarkers, which are proving hard to get on with and if any one knows where I can get some card suitable for promarkers please let me know :0) I have kept the card simple and used my swirly CB folder on the green BP.
Hope you will join in the fun this week over at DU2DS

I wanted a tall box to house some bath bombs for a gift, I scoured the interenet for a template but I couldn't find the right sized box only teeny weeny ones so had a go at making up my own template from 12x12 card YAYYY! it worked ok lol. The digi rose image is a free Dover image that I have watercoloured and stickle glittered. The papers are also a digi free download and is a set called Rich & Shabby for Gina k designs and were a freeby. I used my nesties and CB folders as well as ribbon, lace and gems from stash
This week our theme is Pink Back & White @DU2DS. I made this 8x8 card for a good friend who's birthday it will be soon. I followed the sketch from the Mojo Monday Blog and will be entering my card into their challenge this week.
The DP used are digi downloads I have had them ages so can't remember where thay are from. The perfume bottle Digi Stamp is from the fab Chris Dark's site Sketching Stamper that I have coloured a little with and embossed.I made two copies of the stamp and cut out the bottle stoppers and raised them with some ds foam pads. I matted onto some black card that I cut with my nesties lable die, cuttlebugged and then inked up with a white pad. Flowers and ribbon are from my stash
