Digi Sketch challenge time!

The DT gals are whooping it up over at the Digi Sketch challenge blog with Bugaboo Stamps as our sponsor! The theme is 'Make Me Laugh' which is easy to do with Bugaboo. So many great digis to choose from

Here is my card


Because my craft room is being packed up I had limited supplies on hand-perfect for a CAS card! The sentiment just kills me and thought it suited the digi perfect. Coloured her up with my copics and added washi tape and a button for detail.

The challenge runs for one week, I do hope you'll join us. Don't forget there is a theme and a sketch you can chose to do one or both :)  

Melonheadz Friends-challenge time

Well I'm up to my eyeballs in packing, PTA meetings and I went back to work after 7 years. I almost missed making my cards this week but managed to squeeze them in while my kids were bathing-phew!

There is a challenge at Melonheadz Friends this week called Fancy Folds.
Here is a treat bag I made



Super quick and easy to put together using all scraps. In fact the embossed flowers are from a project I started a while ago but never finished. See my procrastination helped me this week-lol

This bag is a perfect way to give a gift card, use a bigger bag and you could put anything in it.

I hope this inspires you to join us. The challenge runs for 2 weeks and if you are new to Melonheadz you can grab a freebie or two at Nikki's blog.

Have a super day :)

Penny's challenge time

What a week!

My kids aren't normally sick, but just days before school started we were battling with pink eye in one child, and high fever in another. Thankfully they were  'cured' and ready to go for school. Now the 3rd little monkey is home sick :(

Thankfully I had made this card a head of time for the challenge at Penny's. The challenge is 'spots and stripes' and one of the sponsor is StampArt by Kathryne :)

Here is what I made



Isn't he just the cutest? I coloured him up with my copics ( E35, E37, R20, W1) I added a little tag that I will fill in once I know this cards destination.

I hope you'll join us in this fun challenge. It's pretty open ended so sky's the limit for your creativity.
Pop over to the blog to check out the other gals cards and to see who the other sponsor is.

Penny's challenge time

It's time for another challenge at  Penny's Challenges! 

The DT have been embossing like crazy, creating some fun cards for you.

Here is mine using one of our sponsors







Not the best picture to see detail. I glittered the flowers, embossed the white card base, and added a ribbon for detail. It was fun to colour up and I tried to be as neutral as possible in my colour choices.

Penny's challenge runs for one week, I can't wait to see what you'll create :) Have a great week!

Melonheadz Challenge

I cannot believe the leaves are turning....well, actually I can since we seemed to have skipped summer. Lol.

The challenge at Melonheadz Friends is perfect for this changing weather 'Colours of Autumn'.
Inspired my my surroundings, here is what I made


I added the 'count your blessings' in word before I printed the coloured image. Then I simply found my scraps and started punching out little hearts. I added a burnt orange ribbon and attached it to a gate fold (?) card. Easy peasy!

Thanks for popping by. The challenge runs for 2 weeks and you can use any image to play along as long as you follow the theme. But..if you want to use a Melonheadz check here for links to Nikki's personal blog (some freebies) or her Etsy store.

It's time to get well at the Digi Sketch Challenge!

Hello :)

It's been bitter sweet having the kids go back to school. All their teachers are wonderful but I do miss the little side hugs I get as they walk by during the day.

It does however leave lots of crafty time!

It's time for another challenge at the Digi Sketch Challenge Blog. The theme is 'get well' and of course there is a fab sketch to go with it. Determined to use up my scrap box I didn't follow the sketch, I made this instead...


The fab sponsor is MelJen's Designs. She recently has updated her shop, have you scene it? You can check it out here

The challenge runs for 2 weeks, can't wait to see what you make :)
Thanks for stopping by!
