Through the craft room door: anything goes

It is Team A's week to host the challenge at Through the craft room door and as usual, it is anything goes.
We are sponsored by Ikes Art who kindly gave us images to use. For my card, I used wedding cake.
I coloured my image with spectrum noirs and die cut into an oval.
I used Nitwit collections wedding papers, matted on white and added flowers, pins, pearl leaves and an LOTV sentiment to finish.

Football Mad


I'm really enjoying using the polka doodles little dudes images at the moment. When I saw the football boy, I knew straight away I wanted to create an easel card.
I coloured my image with spectrum noirs.
The football themed papers came from an old nitwit collections range, matted on black.
A couple of years ago I won a prize which featured a Marianne designs football kit die set which came in for making the football shirts and the football. I stamped the numbers, which came with the die set onto the shirts.
Both sentiments came from the little dudes range.


The paper shelter: lace and pearls


I'm quite late in posting my paper shelter card as I was away all of last week. You do still have a little bit of time to enter though. I had to share my card as this was one of my favourites in recent weeks.
I love this newish image, Dont pull so hard!, as it reminds me of myself and my mum. 
I thought this image would make a sweet birthday card for a mum, filled with memories. I die cut my image into an oval and coloured using Promarkers.
The papers are from Nitwit collections Cherish range, matted on white. I added ribbon, lace,  flowers and pearls along with a LOTV sentiment.

Dinosaur Dress Up


I love the new little dudes range at Polka Doodles. I'm not the biggest fan of making male cards, although they have to be made, but these images are so cute that I couldn't wait to jump in and use them.
For my first card, I used this cute dinosaur dress up image, coloured with spectrum noirs.
I used papers from a large 12x12 pad that features papers perfect for kids cards and matted on green and white.
Each image comes with three papers and a mix of sentiments but due to low ink I couldn't print the papers at the time. I did however use the sentiments.

I'd like to enter this into:

House Mouse Squares

Today's card features 8 house mouse images all on 1 8x8 card. Yes, 8!
The challenge over at house mouse this fortnight was squares so I decided to create a card that showcased all the fun the mice get up to, wether its drinking martinis, ballet dancing, blowing bubbles or just reading the paper.
I die cut 9 squares, stamping either one of the character stamps (ballet) or a snapshot of a larger image, ( blowing bubbles, gumball machine)
Each image is coloured with Promarkers. I then stamped a sentiment for the centre. To make it nice and colourful, I matted it on a multi coloured stripe.

Today's card features a cute image from Di's digi downloads.
This is one of my favourite places to buy cute digi's. I used this sweet afternoon tea mice to make a card for a grandma.
I die cut the image into an oval and coloured with Promarkers.
I cut down my 6x6 card base so I could fit in the pretty bordered layer in the centre.
I used Nitwit collections sew pretty range, matted on white.
I embellished with flowers, pins, lace, ribbon, a bow, a doily, dew drops, a tea cup charm and a sentiment from polka doodles. 

Inspired by colours.
