My Time to Craft # 50 & ABC Childs Card

Wey hey, another doubler! And another great sketch this time on MTTC.

It also fits ABC - Childs card.

This is the second time I have used this little dragon and he is becoming a firm favourite. The papers are basic grey.

Colour Create # 4 & Crafts4Eternity # 20

On the colour create challenge this week the theme is pink and grey with an optional extra of 'cute and cuddly'.

It also follows the great sketch over on Crafts4Eternity.

The bear is from Cuddly Buddly and I used my Copics to colour, the paper is a leftover piece (good to get some bits and bobs used up).

Truly Scrumptious # 1

OK, another new blog that I could not resist. The first week and there is a great sketch to follow. I have used one of my favourite little bears by Whippersnapper. The papers are from a deja view paper tablet.

Cupcake Challenge # 28

Great sketch to follow this week. I'm lovin' all these sketch challenges. This also fits Cute Card Thursday 'Signs of Spring' but as this is Thursday I have missed the boat on that one. Isn't it scarey how these weeks just fly past - must be gettin' old!

I have gone back to the watercolours for this Penny Black image and I haven't a clue what the papers are as they were loose leftovers I have had for ages.

Just Christmas & Birthday # 19

My first chance to use my new Whiff of Joy stamps and I have followed Kristens fab sketch.

My Time To Craft #49 & Friday Sketchers #40

So a busy week meant no craft or blog for me. I made up for it a little this morning and have managed to do two cards. The first fits two challenges -

My Time to Craft the challenge is to use pink and brown.

Friday Sketchers has a great sketch to follow.

Penny Black #36 & Secret Crafter # 19

Another two for one -

Penny Black Saturday - a great sketch to follow by Nat and it also fits -

Secret Crafter - 'Spring has Sprung'.

I enjoyed this one (cos maybe Spring is just around the corner).

Daring Cardmakers & Sketch Saturday #38

Today has been a bit of a red letter day!

I won the fab stamp over on 'Just Christmas and Birthday Cards' - link to this great challenge is just over there to the right.

And, whispering, (don't tell DH) my stamps arrived from Whiff of Joy. These are the first WOJ stamps I have bought and I can't wait to ink them little beauties up!

Anyway, here is my card that fits 2 challenges -

Daring Cardmakers - 'Feeling Green'
Sketch Saturday - #38

The papers are Basic Grey and I can't take credit for colouring the little froggie as he is a Penny Black Stickeroo!

Sketch & Stash # 3 and Arty Girlz # 72

This one fits two challenges.

The first is the great sketch on Sketch and Stash. My 'new' element is the paper. I have had this piece of 12x12 SEI paper for a looooooong time. Well now there is a little square out the corner so I will probably use the rest up quite quickly now.

The second challenge is 'flowers' on Arty Girlz. The flowers are a mix of prima and the largest are fabric ones I got reduced the other week in WH Smith.

Charisma Cardz # 6 Cupcakes

Mmm, a yummy challenge this week and a chance for me to put the stamps away and use one of my big shot dies. I was going to keep it really plain and just use the circle with the cupcake but then it just looked too plain. So the stamps came back out and I gave it a bit of a swirl. First time I have used the swirly stamping - don't know if it all goes but it's done now!

Sketch Saturday # 37 , ABC & Copic Colour # 1

So only one card tonight but it fits 3 super challenges.

The first is a brill sketch on Sketch Saturday which seems to fit these cute teds perfectly.

The second is ABC challenge who have been right through the alphabet and are back at A. This means it is A for Anniversary.

And the third is another new challenge ' Copic Colour'. As I have just recently invested in a few of these pens I thought this might be fun. The challenge was to use three colours - B28 Royal Blue, V06 Lavender and YR07 Orange. If you don't have these colours you can use the closest colours you have and you don't need to use all three (thankfully, as I don't have any orange ones at all - not my favourite colour!)

A Spoon Full of Sugar # 38 Doodle Doo

I'm hoping that the faux stitching round the edges count as doodling cos it's the best I can doodle doo!

Just Christmas & Birthday # 18 Amandas Sketch

Ok, the image is not coloured as well as I would have liked but I am still trying to get the hang of the Copics pens. Anyway I hope the great Basic Grey papers and my flower take the eye away from my not so great colouring!

This is following the fab sketch on Just Christmas and Birthday.
Oops, see that space on the top right corner, well that's where the sentiment should be! So if you could just imagine a little 'Happy Birthday' or something there then the card will be complete (not having a good night).

Charisma#5 Colour Create#2 Papertake Weekly#8

This fits three super duper challenges !

Charisma Cardz.....a recipe 321.....3 papers, 2 flowers and 1 ribbon.

Colour Create........peach and aqua (with an extra option of DIY flowers).

Papertake........Dawnys Sketch.

DH is away again so no words of wisdom on that front. Hoping to get two cards done each evening until he comes back on Friday. Mmm, may only get one done on Thursday 'cos I should really do some housey chores (we'll see!)

Friday Sketchers # 38 & One Stop Craft # 15

Here is the great sketch over on this weeks Friday Sketchers.

I have doubled it up with the theme on One Stop Craft which is 'Circles'.

This was a quick and easy card to do as it took half a minute to colour the image with my copics and only a couple of minutes to pick the papers as they are all from a co-ordinating pack. I usually take an age to chose what to put with what on a card!

The Sugar Bowl # 3 Love and Romance

Love and Romance is most definately in the air in blogland. This is for the fab challenge over on The Sugar Bowl - link on the side bar will take you straight there. Have a go cos there is some fab candy for the lucky winner.

I think I may squirrel this one away until anniversary time as my Valentine is already in the bag!

My Time to Craft # 47 and Cute Card Thursday # 46

This weeks theme on My Time to Craft is 'A Little Birdie Told Me'. So what a fab opportunity to use the freebie stamp I got with a mag.

'Metallica' is the challenge on Cute Card Thursday. I have used a little heart shape metal charm in the hope that it is enough metal for the challenge.

No comment from DH as he will be the recipient of this a week on Saturday!

Colour Create # 1 and Spoonful of Sugar # 37

There's a new kid on the blog! Colour Create a brand new challenge blog and the first one is a colour challenge - pink, green and brown with the optional extra of 'butterflies'.

This also follows the great sketch on A Spoonful of Sugar.

I got this great little stamp a while back from Sally-Ann @ Love to Doodle (link on the sidebar). I don't know if it's still available but if you likey go to her blog. There are lots of fab images.

No DH comment on this one as he is away on business but I'm sure it would pass his quality control!

Just Christmas and Birthday # 17

Another great sketch - I think maybe sketch challenges are my fave at the mo'. Copics again, beginning to love these pens! Think I may have copied the string idea from Love to Doodle (thanks for the inspiration Sally-Ann).

DH's comment - 'subtle and tasteful'.

Friday Sketchers # 37

Great sketch to follow this week over on Friday Sketchers and one that I am bound to use again.

I have used one of my new stamps (went on a bit of an online spending spree last week). Isn't he the cutest! I have coloured him with copics pens. I also used clear embossing powder as I think that makes this kind of image pop out.

DH's comments - 'super'.

My Time to Craft#46 Stamp Something & PBS#34

The challenge on Penny Black this week is a 'circle card'. This is a first for me (I have soo much to learn). So, I have used my nesties. It makes the card quite little so I may use it as a tag at Easter.

The other 2 Challenges are 'Little bit of Sunshine' and 'Summer in Winter'. So I'm thinkin' what with it being yellow it fits the bill for both!
