Dutch Dare Challenge

This weeks Dutch Dare Challege is "NO SQUARE EDGES", I used an Elzybells image coloured with copics, and added glitter to the trail of the bee. I cut the image out using nestabilities, I ran the green bazil card through a cuttlebug embossing folder, then mounted pink card onto, wrapped some sparkly ribbon around, I then stamped an Elzybells image onto the backing paper.

Elzybells Challenge 2.

Elzybells - which I am totally in love with have started challenges over on their blog . I didn't do the 1st one, but am well prepared for the second!!!!! The challenge is a sketch. I have used a new Christmas Stamp by Elzybells, coloured it with good old lovely copics, added some glitter for that bit of Christmas sparkle, I cut it out with nesties, I punched a hole in the layered up card, threaded some ribbon through and added a Christmas Wishes sentiment. I put the turquoise card through the big shot using the snow flake cuttlebug embossing folder. I also cut the corners out using nesties. To get the two tone effect on the turquoise card, I sanded down the card so the white center would show through.

Fairy Special Brithday

Here is a birthday card I made, this week the Arty Girlz are celebrating their first birthday. So Happy Birthday to them.
I made this card using an Elzybells image and sentiment. Cut out the image using nesties, coloured it with copics, added glamour dust to the wings. Then added a strip of backing paper to the bottom of the card, and a strip of ribbon to separate the join, I added some pink gems to finish. Loving the Elsy's. x

Engagement Card(s)

My boyfriend's Mum got engaged on her birthday last weekend, so my boyfriend asked me to make her and her hubby to be a card. So I did, I got a bit carried away and made 5!!! So he has a selection to chose from.
I wanted to make something simple and pretty, they are pretty much the same - just a little bit different, I printed the sentiments out in different colours, just to see how they came out, I think that's why I made 5, I cut them out with nesties. I used various cuttlebug embossing folders, and found my stash of gems (my gem mountain), and my lovely new oh so sparkly ribbon.

Here they are.......

Double Challenge

I've done it, I've got a new camera to computer cable, and a fancy box which I can put all the other USB cables into so every thing works at once!!!! So now, fingers crossed I wont be forever up down, up down, plugging in, & unplugging, not paying attention, and having leads eaten etc......

Here is a card I made over the weekend, its going to my friend Jo, who is Mummy to my lovely nephew George, they are getting their new puppy 'Roxy' at the end of the month, I hope their's does not eat everything. Mac has eaten more shoes, boot heals than I care to mention, I dared add up the value!!! Too scary!!!!!!!!!! Bless him. Those big brown eyes, and soft fluffy fur.

Anyway enough chit chat about mutley!!!!

This card is for this weeks Cute Card Thursday challenge, 'Cats & Dogs', and also for Sketch Saturday,

I stamped the Bella image onto plain white CS, coloured it with copics and stargazers, I cut it out using nesties, I ran some bazzil CS through the swiss dots embossing folder, and cut out 2 matching corners again using cuttlebug dies. I coloured the flowers with stargazers, and added glamour dust.

I'm still here!!!

Well I know I've not posted for over a week now, I have my gorgous lovely/naughty puppy Mac to thank!!!!
He had a nibble/munch on the cable that goes from the camera to the computer, and it does not work, in fact it was smoking in my hand when I went to upload my latest pics.

Although I didn't catch Mac in the act I don't think my boyfriend was responsible for the damage, given the tiny teeth marks left in the wire. We've had words!!!!! But I cant stay cross for long, he was watching telly here.
