Cutesy Girly for my Girly...

I have a daughter, she is my only girl of my 4 children. 
Just as I was mum's only girl out of the 5 of us.
Just like my mum after so many boys, sometimes my daughters behaviour  makes me go "WTF" but then I remember she is a girl and girls are VERY different to boys and I feel all blessed to have her in my life.

So this card is for her, because she is a treasure!

The image is a Krista Smith image called Heart Craft
I coloured her up on kraft cardstock with prisma pencils.

Thanks loads for dropping by

Dreamy Dragon with Bizzy Becs

Hi, I am here with you today to share a card I made for a friend who loves dragons.
This is also my Bizzy Bec's Design Team project for this month.

I coloured up Whimsy Stamps Dreamy Dragon with inktense pencils on watercolor paper

I used a paper pad from my stash.
I stamped the sentiment from Stampin Bella Unicorn Sentiments

Thanks for dropping by and I hope I gave you a little inspiration :)

Southern Girls - Anything Goes

Today is Team Lou's first challenge for 2020 over at

We have new team member s and this year we are going to be anything goes for every challenge.

There will still be special prizes for Aussie and NZ crafters.

For this challenge I used a stamp that is available from Auzz Trinkets and Crafts who are one of our sponsors.

I stamped the image Penny Black Radiant in grey flannel Memento ink.
I then coloured it with prisma pencils.
I masked the image and sponged around it with dye ink.
The sentiment is from a My Favorite Things set.

Thanks for dropping by, come on over to SGC and play along

See told you I was going to be better.....

And I am back!
With barely a gap between posts, go me.

Today I am sharing an older Tiddly Inks image on a card with you.

I coloured this one on Kraft too, which will be the case with a few upcoming cards as I print out 6 images at once on a sheet of A4.

Again the image is coloured with inktense pencils.
The papers are Kaisercraft Papers from a 6.5x6.5 pad.
I did go back to 6x6 for this card base.
I am running out of large envelopes though so I either need to cut down my size or find a supplier!

Thanks for joining me today.

OMG - My posts are getting more and more sporadic so I am about to schedule a crapload of them so that my recent cards will see the light of day.

I recently become a member of Krista Smith's patreon thing.
I love her images and I was totally sad when she closed her shop a couple of years ago.
Then I spotted on facebook that she was back creating, so exciting.
AND she has opened a brand new onling shop YAY!

So, yep, I have been making a few cards with Krista's images lately.
the first I will share with you today.

This image was one of a set of character stamps that can be used together or apart and I can not find him in the shop so not sure where you would get him now.

I coloured him up on kraft cardstock using inktense pencils.

I decided to go small and flat for the card base so that meant a pretty quick card to finish.

Thanks for popping by today
