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.

Crafty hugs

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!

It's Lacy Sunshine time

Oh boy do we need some sunshine. It's really, really rainy. Not your typical rain but a solid down-pouring. Hopefully it will let up soon or my basement might flood-eek!

Anywho, the challenge at the Lacy Sunshine blog is -include a window.

Here is my entry

I coloured it up with my copic markers and used lots of buttons for dimension. A sentiment and bow was added to finish it off :)

Thanks for popping by :)

Penny challenge time!

It's another fab challenge at Penny's challenges! This round the theme is real or faux stitching. One of the sponsors is Bugaboo Stamps

Here is a card I made

Alas, we won't have much gardening left but I really like the image :) I kept the card pretty plain as the image was printed so large. 
The challenge runs for one week and there are 2 sponsors for the challenge, Head on over to the blog and see who it is, as well as, what the DT made to inspire you :)
