It's challenge time!! Welcome 2016

It's challenge time over at Melonheadz Friends. Our theme is 'use snowflakes' 

Here is my card using a Winter Kidlette freebie found on the Melonheadz Illustrating blog.

I cut out the pre-coloured image and adhered it to  snowflake paper. It was then layered on 2 more pieces of cardstock.

The red snowflake I have had for years ( it's from Stampin' Up) and I added a sticker sentiment to the middle. 

We have 24 birthdays to celebrate between family and friends so I'm sure I'll be using this soon :)

The challenge runs for two weeks. If you use a Melonheadz image your theme can be 'anything goes' if not, please follow the theme.

The winner gets 1 bundle of their choice from the Melonheadz Etsy shop

See you next time!

It's almost here.....

Do you have your Halloween costume together yet? There certainly are some weird ones out there.
My kids have always wanted to create their own costume, sometimes they are great, other times....
My last minute costume has yet to be decided, but that's pretty usual for me. Lol

There is a challenge starting today at Melonheadz Friends called ' include a pumpkin'

Here is my card using a pre-coloured digi

This digi is actually from the 'bookmark bundle' found at the Melonheadz Etsy Store. You get 12 coloured bookmarks- themed for each month for only $7.00. I love them, and as you can see you can use them for more than just bookmarks.

The challenge runs for 2 weeks , I'll be popping by to see your cards :)

I joined a challenge this week at the Outlawz. It's been a while since I've been on there, truth be told I couldn't for the life of me remember my password-lol.

 Here is my ATC -which was only 3 1/2 by 2 1/2 inches EEK! I had to cut it down a few times to make it fit that size.

 I used a Karleigh sue image and coloured it with my copics. The sentiment I made in word and then I embellished from there. Hope you like it :)

Melonheadz challenge time!

Are you ready for a giggle? Well you would have been if you had seen the mess I made with this new challenge at Melonheadz Friends 'try something new'.

I thought I would try and make my own background. I thought I could use a gold spritzer I hadn't used in a while......

Enter flying gold particles, golden fingers, baby wipes and finally inks and a stipple brush. Check out the result

I am happy with the background, not so much with my craft space. Apparently the spritz nozzle can get jammed up if you leave it for too long and didn't flow quite the way I had planned. Imagine me looking down at my paper trying to spritz and out of the corner of my eye I see it shooting across the room. Yep, that happened :(

The good news is you can try anything that is new to you-a new fold, new technique, etc.

Looking forward to seeing your cards. The challenge runs for two weeks
