Colour Create and 3rd GDT card,

Hi peeps, well I’m managing to get on my blog just about, entertaining two Westies and trying to colour isn’t easy lol, the challenge over at Colour Create this week is Janiels choice and it’s warm pinks, chocolate, brown and white, optional extra GIRLIE, that’s a lovely challenge for you as we all love our Girlie cards don’t we,

Challenges, Pollycraft Monday~ Bold and Bright,   Pear tree designs~ Glitter sparkles,   Papertake weekly~ In the Garden,    Little red wagon~Use a tree somewhere,

Pink Brown and White

We have been sponsored by who have provided us with some lovely Digi images to use, I chose this pretty little bird sitting on a tree stump, called A little bird told me,

Dt Bird and GDT paperplay

As you can see I’ve used a large white feather, love using these things, pearls, Tim Holtz flourish, MS trellis punch, Tim Holtz Shabby Chic Vintage papers, circle and scalloped circle Nestie dies, Copics, Glamour Dust, Magnolia Swirl Stamp,Sissix flourish swirl die


I’ve used Tim Holtz Distress Inks on my flourish die to match the background of my card which I also did using these, it makes the card and extras coordinate and helps if you haven’t got the right coloured card like me lol,

I made my pearl swirl by cutting a swirl out of acetate then sticking my swirls onto it, I do hope you will join us, as  like I’ve said us girls like our pinks and girlie stuff lol,

For my second card today it’s for my GTD at paperplay, this time it’s a lovely sketch by Sandie and I think they have been given some images to play with as well, for this challenge I thought I’d go out of my comfort zone and do a country style feeling card, the image is by Sarah Kay which I’ve had ages and rarely ink up which is a shame as she’s adorable,I’ve also used a piece of cardstock sent to me to try with my DI’s and I’m loving it,

Challenges, Paper Sundies~ Lots of layers,   Creative Inspirations~ oldest thing in your stash,   Incy wincy designs~ Distress it,

PaperPlay - July 15


The papers were a freebie in a craft Magazine and I’ve edged them with crackle paint not to sure about that actually as it’s a bit to bright for me but you don’t know these things till you try do you lol, button brads and flowers from stash, Tim Holtz adage  ticket which I’ve distressed and crumpled, platinum stickles are near her feet,

well I think that’s it for now, have fun, see you soon,
