The Paper Shelter - Wrapped Up

I am STOKED!!!!!  I have been asked to stay on as a permanent DT member at The Paper Shelter, I am so happy to be back on board whoop whoop!
This week is Team A's turn (which I am on) and our them is All Wrapped Up, so yep in the sweltering heat of summer another winter card for me, I guess that is why the coral orange sneaked in ;)

I coloured the image Warm in the Winter with Prisma pencils, the papers are teresa Collins and I have used pearl trim from Retail Girl on Trade Me and Liquid Pearls (Blitsy Bargain) I inked the edges using Distress Inks in Broken China and Spiced Marmalade (Blitsy Bargains).  The sentiment is from Hero Arts and was stamped with Not Quite Navy SU ink.

Thanks loads for coming by my blog today :)

Digital Tuesday - Winter Wonderland

Hi :)
This wee at Digital Tuesday the girls up North are in the grips of Winter so our theme is about Winter, very difficult to create when it is 35' Celcius outside here.
We are sponsored by My Grafico and we got a very cute penguin set to play with.  Here is my card......

I put away my prisma pencils for this card and used my copics, was a little hard after such a long break to get my blending right.

The papers are basic grey What's Up and the ribbon is from American Crafts (blitzy bargain!), the cardstock is American Crafts and the flowers are from Wild Orchid.

Thanks loads for dropping by today and stay tuned for another wintery post coming soon ;)

SGC - Get Krafty

Hi :)
I am a little late with my post for SGC this fortnight, but here it is now.
We have kindly been provided with Saturated Canary images to play with as they are one of our sponsors for this challenge.  I have used "mousey Mo" on my card.  I am gutted as I completely stuffed up my light source on this image and there are at least 3 grrrrr. It still turned out pretty cute though I guess.....

I am going to enter this in the latest Saturated Canary Challenge which is Movie inspiration my inspiration is Mickey's Magical World" ;)

Thanks loads for popping by and I hope you all have a fantastic weekend!

The Paper Shelter - Winter Blues

Hi  :)  It is a totally yucky day here considering we are in the middle of summer, so it is very appropriate that I am posting the card I am about to.

If you have been following me for a while you will remember that I was on the DT for the Paper Shelter until I stepped down when I had my operation last June..... well, Shirley emailed me on Tuesday to ask if I would be able to guest DT until March. WHOOO HOOOO of course I said yes!  I love The Paper Shelter and Veronica and Pedro are so awesome.

So anyway here is my card for WINTER BLUES using the very cute "cup of cocoa".  I had to use a precoloured image as due to the time difference and the challenge going live I only had a few hours.

Thanks loads for dropping by, and thanks so much for for your wonderful comments :)  The really do make my day!

DTC - Flower Power

This weeks challenge over at Digital Tuesday Challenge is FLOWER POWER.  So we would like to see flowers on your projects, remember also to include a digital element.
This week our sponsor is Spesch Designer Stamps which is where the image I have used called "loves me not" comes from.

I have blended the prisma pencils out on this image which I think makes the colours alot less saturated than they usually do when I colour my images.  I am not sure I really like it.  I have added some interest around the image with liquid pearls.  The flowers on the card are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the pearl trim is from Louise Delore (RetailGirl on trademe) and the dies are spellbinders apart from the leaves which are SU.

Thanks loads for dropping by.....
