Rainy Day

Well, I've been having a break from cardmaking for a few weeks!  Now I am back and gearing up for Christmas.  But first, here's a cute card that I did not get finished in time to share as part of the Tiddly Inks DT.  

I've used Wryn's Ducky Dance and she's coloured with copics and paper pieced  with some gorgeous Stampin' Up papers that I have been hanging on to...

The card base is acetate decorated with glossy accents raindrops -

This card is one of my entries into the Cardmaking and Papercraft Card Designer of the Year competition. I was lucky enough to get runner-up last year, so fingers crossed I get a place this year :)

Pocket Letter

It's been a hectic few weeks with school holidays and other family stuff, so I haven't been able to make a showstoppper for my last DT project.  This is a pocket letter I sent to America 6 weeks ago, so I've been waiting for it to arrive before posting to my blog.  It's got lots of goodies in it including a sweet little Tiddly Inks card using Inking of You which was one of the first ever Tiddly Inks digis I bought. 

She's a favourite of mine so it's nice to post this project as my last card for the DT team.  It's been so much fun and I've got to know some really lovely ladies, even though I have been MIA around facebook for a while.  Thanks for reading, and I hope to be back soon with some more projects once my boy is settled back at school xxx

Here's some more pics of my Pocket Letter :

Have a bloomin' lovely day!

Valentine Pixie
Here's the card for my last challenge over at the Tiddly Inks Challenge Blog.

I've used Valentine Pixie, such a cute & fun little image.  I've layered the image onto a DL card with some coloured paper and a few buttons just to balnce out the bold sentiments stamped at the top.   The sentiments are by Jo Firth-Young from the set JOFY 11.

Here's my recipe - I've used copics and Spectrum Noirs (marked*) for this one, with a touch of Stickles on the wing, hair and purple flowers :

Skin : E000 E00 E21 E11 E04
Hair: RV000 R20 R22 CR6*
Wings: B000
Pink: E18 DR5* DR1* DR2* CR6*
Purple: HB1* BV000 BV00 BV02 BV13
Green: DR2* YG63 YG67

Be You {ti-ful}

Today I've made a card with one of my favourite Wryns, School Girl and she's only $1!

I have coloured her with my copics
Skin :E000 E00 E21 E11 E04 R20
Hair :E51 E53 E43 E57
Pink :R22 E08
Red : R27 R46 R59

I made the background with a paper from a digital scrapbooking kit, printed on Neenah cardstock.
I used my Stampin Up Flower Patch stamps with Crisp Canteloupe, Pistachio Pudding and Strawberry Slush inks.

A nice and simple card from me for a change :)  My photo is not so good though :(

Paws for Thought

Annabelle and Pups

There's a new challenge over at the Tiddly Inks Challenge blog, we want to see critters!

My card layout is kinda inspired by the scrapbooking pages I've done recently, lots of wonky layers.  I've left a white border around the image, so it pops off the page.  The papers are My Minds Eye - Sweetest Thing - Tangerine.  I've had the papers a while and really love them - this was the perfect way to use the last few scraps!

Annabelle's dress is paper pieced and she's all coloured up with copics :)

Christmas in July!

Christmas! In July?!  

I do not usually make any Christmas Cards before September, or even start buying Christmas Stash!
But I have been doing a lot of digital scrapbooking over at The LilyPad and completing a lot of challenges. This week is Christmas in July.

I have made this card for oe of the challenges, using digital papers and elements called "A Season to Remember" by Amber LaBau which you can buy in the Lilypad store. I am absolutely in love with digital scrapbooking!  You can buy so much for so little, and you can keep it forever!!

Of course, I had to use a Wryn digi as the main image on my card!  It's Cocoa Wishes, one of my favourite Tiddly Ink Christmas images.  I've paper pieced her  and coloured her with copics. I am pleased with how cute she looks :)

Walk like an Egyptian

Egyptian Cuties

Sorry!  I am a bit late today with my Tiddly Tuesday post!  I keep forgetting what day of the week it is, now there's no school! 

It's  Song Time at Tiddly Inks, so pick a tune and make a card!  Use your imagination, there's loads of inspiration on the blog.

I have used these Egyptian Cuties to make my project.  Aren't they sweet and they're dancing the dance :)
