Easter Wishes With The Paper Shelter

Hi, this week at The Paper Shelter Challenge
or theme is EASTER.

There are so many fantastic Easter images in the shop it was hard to pick just one to use for the challenge.

I ended up choosing Charmy Bunny after much deliberation.
I did fully intend to colour up the image unfortunately I have had a pretty horrendous couple of weeks with one thing and another so ended up using the lovely pre coloured image.

Bunny Lovelies with Bizzy Becs

Hi, I am here with you today to share a little bunny love with the
ultra cute Bunny Stuffies Stamp by Stamping Bella.

I love this stamp as it is perfect for EVERYTHING! 
And with Valentines coming up it would work perfectly too.

This time round I have made a Thank You card for a friend of mine who despite having 5 kids of her own is always available to take a couple of mine when needs must.  She even met me at the doctors the other day and whisked 2 of my kids off.
She definitely deserves a Bunny Stuffies card.

And here is the card....



I coloured the image with promarker alcohol markers and layered it up on lots of pretty papers on a 6x6 background.
I cut the image out with stitched circle dies.
The sentiment was stamped with Big Scripty Words Stamps from lawn Fawn and then cut with the corresponding die Big Scripty Words dies
I then added the cute clouds which are Puffy Clouds from Memory Box.

Thanks loads for joining me today

Kitty Acrobatics with The Paper Shelter

Big news for the 2018 - I am back on the DT at The Paper Shelter.
I used to be on the DT there a while ago but had to step down when my kids were younger and we were having trouble with my youngests boys health.
But we have all that under control now and all the kidlets are now at school (oldest is in his last year of Primary before high school ARGHHHHHH, where does the time go?)


The theme of this fortnights challenge is New Beginnings.
I have used Kitty Acrobatics from the TPS SHOP

I thought it was appropriate as a lot of people decide to lose weight as a New Year's resolution and she looks like she is exercising ;)


I have used promarkers to colour the image.
The papers are from my stash of 6x6 pads and I added some pearls around the image to give it a bit of bling.

Thanks loads for dropping by and be sure to come and play along with our challenge at The Paper Shelter Challenge.  You don't have to use TPS images to enter but if you do you can win a $30 voucher for the TPS shop. Fantastic prize.

Unicorn Wishes with Bizzy Becs

Time for our monthly ANYTHING GOES challenge at BIZZY BECS

I was feeling all whimsical the day I made this card.
I love unicorns and if you follow me on here or my FACEBOOK PAGE you may have seen
my unicorn profile pic I had up for a while.

I am excited that I got a big shot for Christmas as my trusty cuttlebug was on its last legs and making a horrible clunk when I wound the dies through.
Much easier now with my new machine and it has been getting a bit of a workout as you will see in my upcoming posts.

So onto the card....

I used a stencil on the background with tumbled glass distress ink on a makeup sponge.
I then added the puffy cloud diecuts and my unicorn which is coloured with promarkers.
I added my sentiment and the liquid pearl drops to finish.

Supplies Used
