4 challenge card

Hello everyone!!

I hope you all had a good Easter! We had a fab time away. We toured round Scotland staying in the Youth Hostels. I've never stayed in a Youth Hostel before so wasn't sure what to expect but it was great and the girls loved it. Our trip home ended up a bit different than expected though, as the road we were going to take was closed with the snow so we had to do a massive detour!!

Hard to believe that was only last week and now it is gorgeous and sunny. I know which I prefer!!

Anyway, back to normal now so I have made this card. It is for my Dad's birthday and I am entering the following four challenges:

Papertake Weekly - I have used the sketch

Creative Inspirations - I have followed the colour scheme of Green, Brown & Blue

I Love Digi - I have used a digital image (Sammy and the steam engine from Digital Stamps Oasis) and followed the 'recipe' of 3 Papers, 2 Brads + 1 Embellishment.

Moving Along With The Times - The challenge was to make an easel card. First time I have done one of these and I'm quite pleased with it!!

The papers are from Crafts-Too and Daisy & Dandelion. The embellishment is from Papermania and was silver. I tried colouring it with my promarkers but it didn't come out like I wanted, so I embossed it with brown embossing powder and my heat gun instead.

Thanks for looking!!

I Love Digi challenge

Another entry tonight, my last before Easter as we are now going away for a few days.

This entry is for the I Love Digi Challenge. The theme is Easter.

I have made a set of five Easter cards using the set of images "Spring Coco and friends" from DigiStamp Boutique.

I have kept these cards quite simple (bit of a rush as going away tomorrow!!). I've used scalloped cards from Craftwork Cards then I've embossed the front of each card blank in my BigShot. The images are coloured with my promarkers. Ribbon from stash. Sentiment printed out on my computer!!

I hope you all have a good Easter - don't eat too much chocolate!!!

Just Cute Bears & Passion for Promarkers

I've made this card using the sketch on Just Cute Bears.

I've used the stamp I won on their challenge a couple of weeks ago (thanks again folks at Just Cute Bears!!). It is quite a large stamp with a lot going on in the background, so I've left the rest of the card quite plain. I've used embossed paper for the main layer on the card, as patterned paper looked far too busy!
I've coloured the image with my promarkers. I'm also entering this card for the current Passion for Promarkers challenge, which is to make a Springtime card that must include an animal.
Thanks for looking!!

Pollycraft & Creative Inspirations challenges

This card is made with a lovely freebie I downloaded from Pollycraft.
The 'Tales from Pollycraft' blog is offering two free images to use to make cards for their Design Team challenge. This image is called Codi Stylin' - isn't she cute!! There is actually a little skull image in the middle of her tshirt which I have covered with a gem as it didn't really go with my flowery backing papers!!
The challenge on the other Pollycraft blog, Pollycraft Monday Challenge, is to make the card SPARKLY!! Excellent!! I've added gems, glitter glue and some gorgeous sparkly ribbon from Papermania's Couture Ribbon collection.
Finally, I have used the current sketch on the Creative Inspirations challenge blog.
Thanks for looking!

5 challenge card!!!

Well, I think this must be the first time I've combined quite so many challenges in one card, but with the Spring theme floating around everywhere at present it seemed daft not to!!

This card is for the following challenges:

Creative Inspirations - colour scheme of White, Yellow & Green
Squiggle Stamps - Spring theme plus I've used their lovely Sunny Flower Girl stamp which seemed really appropriate for this challenge
Crafty Catz - Spring theme
Digital Tuesday Challenge - Spring theme and the Sunny Flower Girl image I used is a digital download.
Well, I think that's it for now!!!
Thanks for looking!!

White card for Just Cute Bears & Mojo Monday

This is a card for the Just Cute Bears and Mojo Mondays challenges.

The challenge on Just Cute Bears was to do a card that is all white (other than some colour on the image). I found this really tricky as I love to use loads of colour on my cards. I did put a bit of colour round the edges of my papers for definition as I thought otherwise it would all blend in to one!
I followed the sketch on this week's Mojo Monday challenge.
The image is from Digistamp Boutique and is called Coco and roses.
