PRIZE......3 IMAGES OF WINNERS CHOICE

The DT were very generously given some wonderful images to play along with but unfortunately after printing my digi paper (from Raspberry Road Designs) and getting my frame cut on the Cricut when I went to print my image off I had no black ink left! I had to have a rummage around amongst my 'rubba' to find a stamp that fitted with what I had planned!  So I found this poppy image and decided to stick with a monochrome theme.  Coloured with Chameleons and some SN Sparkle added, a sizzix tag die cut little stamped sentiment, some ribbon and finally some gems.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Just thought I'd share with you the card I made for this months entry in the progressive challenge over at Simply B Friends.  This months image is so sweet and is called 'Strawberry Rio' and I have used copics and chameleons to colour her, the paper is from Raspberry Road Designs and I teamed it up with some green cs some of which I have embossed and some I have used to make a frame, the frame and paper have both been cut on the Cricut.  The sentiment comes with the image and I finished off with some funky pink flower buttons and green bakers twine.

Crafty Cardmakers Challenge #194 ~ Under The Sea or At The Beach

Well hello there, it seems like I've been away for so long!  Work! really does get in the way! lol but then how else would I be able to buy my craft supplies?  Anyway I'm back today (a little late) with details about the new challenge over at Crafty Cardmakers and this fortnight our wonderful Judy is the host and she chose the theme of  Under the Sea or At the Beach.

I opted for under the sea and used a cute image from Simply B Stamps Simon Seahorse who is part of the AlphaBettys collection.  I really couldn't decide how best to colour him so in the end I paper pieced him and love how he turned out.  All the papers are from MME.  The creamy cs that he is mounted on has been inked with 3 lots of distress inks.  The shells and banner are all cut on the Cricut from soft coral cs and I finished off with some liquid pearls and a stamped sentiment.

Just Chillin'

Here's a card I made that was supposed to be for this weeks challenge over at Crafty Catz which was Anything Goes with the twist of Ice Cream, either the item or flavours/colours of.  Well unfortunately I have been so busy that I just never got my card made in time, which seems to be the story of my life at the moment!  So I thought I'd come on and share it now that I have finished it! lol

The papers are MM Cosmopolitan, the image is coloured using copics and chameleons and I finished off with some ribbon, flowers and enamel dots from my stash and a stamped sentiment from PTI.
