FAVOURITE ANIMAL

Hello All,

I'm back with my 2nd card today and it's time for a new challenge over at As You Like It.  For this fortnight we would like you to showcase a project showing your favourite animal.



I have to say my favourites are dogs.  We have two of them and they are so loving and loyal, but I must say they sometimes drive my hubby mad because they follow him everywhere!

I have used the cute MFT Happy Pawlidays stamp set.  I've had the set for ages, but it's the first time it's been used.  I've coloured with copics, made an attempt at masking and used a Joanna Sheen holly edger die.

The sponsor for the challenge is:

I hope you will be able to join in and you can see the fabulous inspiration from the rest of the DT if you pop over here.

I would like to enter these challenges:

Ally's Angels - Anything Goes
Winter Wonderland - Cute Christmas
Crafting with an Attitude - Anything Goes


Thank you for visiting and I hope you have a lovely weekend.

FAVE COLOURING MEDIUM

Good Morning Everyone,

There's a new challenge over at As You Like It and for this fortnight we would like you to showcase a project using your favourite colouring medium (and don't forget to say why it's your favourite please). I always use copic markers. These are the first pens I used when I started colouring and even though I've tried pencils I always go back to the copics, I suppose it's because I'm more familiar with them and find them quicker to use.





The sponsor for the challenge is:


For my card I've used the cute Bunny Holding Flower kindly provided by our sponsor, coloured with the aforementioned copics.  This is a fairly cas card for me, but I'm pleased with the way it's turned out.  I've embossed the sentiment from LOTV in silver and used yellow and green card to go with the image.  A strip of white ribbon breaks up the gingham a bit too.

I hope you can join in this fortnight and if you'd like to pop over to the challenge you'll be able to see the wonderful inspiration from the rest of the DT.

I would like to enter these challenges:

Crafty Friends - Spring
Double "D" - Gingham

CWTCUTIES - WHITE ON WHITE

Good Morning All,

It's time for a new challenge over at Christmas with the Cuties and the theme is White on White.






For my card I've used an image from our sponsors, Crafty Sentiments Designs.  I must admit it's quite difficult to have a totally white on white card when you have an image to colour, but I've tried to keep the colours as pale as possible and used light teal and grey copics.  I've added white glitter to the band on his earmuffs and extra snowflakes too. A Creative Expressions sentiment,  Joy Crafts snowflake border and three little pearls finish it off. The sentiment has had sparkle pen added, but as usual you can't see this on the photo.

I hope you can join in and make a start on those christmas cards following the theme of cute christmas and white on white.

I would like to enter the following challenges:

March Rudolph Days - Anything Christmas
Crafty Hazelnuts Christmas - Anything Goes
Artistic Inspirations #213 - Anything Goes
Pixies Snippets Playground - Snippets used are the sentiment, snowflake border and bottom layer of white card (it's in 2 pieces)
Christmas at Sweet Stampin - Anything Goes

Thank you for visiting and I do appreciate it when you leave a comment, thank you.

DIES OR STENCILS AT AYLI

Good Morning Everyone,

It is time for a new challenge at As You Like It and this fortnight the theme is "Dies or Stencils", which do you prefer?




My favourite is definitely dies.  I use them a lot on my cards and I especially like the stitched edge dies as they finish a card off really well and dies also make it very easy to add interest to a card.  For my DT card I have used a Stamping Bella stamp called Happy Everything coloured with copics.  The dies I have used are Lawn Fawn puffy clouds border, a Whiff of Joy fence die and also a sun die.  The little flowers added to the fence are from a Martha Stewart punch.

We would love you to share your creations for this challenge and the sponsor this time is Crafty Ribbons with a lovely prize for the lucky winner.

Have a good week and I hope you haven't suffered any damage in the winds this week.

I would like to enter:
