Messy Hair


I was one of the lucky winners over at Pinspiration challenge during the 6th anniversary challenge and won a voucher to Little Blue Button.
I had never heard of this brand but I have found some great digi stamps, this being a favourite as it reminds me of me!
Anyone with thick hair will have this problem!
I coloured the image with a mix of Promarkers and spectrum noirs. The papers are from a Pebbles paper pad called Girl squad. The Messy hair sentiment also came from here.

House Mouse: Baking Mouse Apron Card

Today i wanted to share this card that i made for the House Mouse and friends challenge, which is anything with the option of Lets Eat.
I created this apron shaped card, using a template from a magazine. 
I also used papers that came with the template.
I die cut a doily circle, cut in half and then die cut a circular peice of the floral and did the same to create a pocket.
I created a pocket so that i could add the circular image of Mudpie in a cupcake case. I also added baking mouse Amanda in the bottom corner. I coloured both with promarkers.
I punched holes in the top to create the apron strings and finished by adding lace.

Id like to enter this into:
I love all animals, so i could of come up with any with a few exceptions, { creepy crawlies and sharks}but when it comes to crafting i love using the House Mouse images, so i would have to say mice.
I love the cute little mice that get up to allsorts!

Ruby Frou Frou


Last week I was having a look at challenges for some inspiration and found the picture inspiration over at The Card Concept.

I loved the colours and the beautiful dress and used this as my inspiration, so, using one of the new Ruby digi stamps from polka doodles, I created my own version.
I coloured her with Promarkers and added sequins to her dress.
Luckily, I have a paper pad from The Works that features blue/pink papers so I used this and matted on white.
I added lace, flowers and a sentiment to finish.

I'd like to enter this into:

Beach Bum Bob


I'm back today with a men's card. I'm not big on making men's card's, (even though we all need to at some point!) I think its something to do with not being able to add flowers and lace.:)

Winnie Birthday Easel


In recent weeks I've become a fan of the digi stamps at Polka Doodles, especially Winnie. When we bought some digi's, I came up with creating a large 8x8 twisted easel card. I merged three Winnie images together to create my image, colouring them with a mix of spectrum noirs and Promarkers. The image is 6x6. 
I used Nitwit collections friendship papers, matted on white and light yellow. I added a doily, lace, flowers and a sentiment to finish.

The Paper Shelter: Birthday


It's time for a new challenge over at The Paper Shelter and this weeks challenge is Birthday. Easy right?
For my card I used the beautiful enchanted butterflies. I love butterflies, I even have butterfly wallpaper in my room so this image really stood out to me.
I coloured the image with Promarkers.
The papers came from an old wild rose studio paper pad, matted on white.
I added a lovely butterfly die cut design up the side, by tattered lace, and some flowers and finished with a sentiment. 

For me its Promarkers. Although my colouring varies between Spectrum noirs and Promarkers, I always tend to go back to Promarkers. These are the first markers I ever had for crafting and I've continued to use them, getting better at shading and blending. 

I Love Promarkers: Get well soon

This weeks challenge at I love Promarkers is Get well soon.
We are sponsored by Ikes Art and for my card I used the image hydrangea basket.
I matched it with nitwit collections grin and bear it papers, matted on white. I kept the card simple, finishing with a sentiment.

House Mouse Multiple Circles


I'm back today to share my second card for the House mouse challenge which this fortnight was anything goes or multiple images. As I mentioned in my last post featuring my first card for this challenge, this really inspired me to search my stamps. I've really enjoyed using more than one image.
I used two of my favourites on this card, the first being part of the image from the stamp, flower arranging and the second being this little cutie, Mudpie holding a flower. This is only a small image but it has always been a favourite.
I coloured them both with Promarkers.
I used my favourite circle dies, matting them on orange.
The paper came from a magazine freebie and is actually embossed with the folder that came with it but that isn't very visable on the photo.
I finished with one of the mousy sentiments and added some pink twine.

I hope you've enjoyed my mousy make!

House Mouse Birthday Wishes


The challenge at House mouse and friends this fortnight is use multiple images, something I don't always think to do yet have plenty of images that can be mixed and matched together. This theme inspired me and I got to finding out stamps that would go together straight away.
I created this birthday card using one of my favourite larger images, mice with cupcake (and a full belly!). Then used two of the smaller birthday themed stamps, coloured with Promarkers.
 Nearly all my favourite House mouse images include one of the mice with cake so I had to make a birthday card featuring one of my favourites.
The paper, matted on Brown, came from a 8x8 paper pad from The Works. I added ribbon, a bow and a sentiment to finish. 


Oddball fairy


I have something different to share today featuring an image from Oddball art. It's the first time I have used an image from there but I have to say I really like this brand and can definitely see me using more of their images.
I used Sai the fairy for this card, coloured with Promarkers and spectrum noirs.
I matched it with prima marketing's Rose quartz collection, matted on black.
I also faux stitched around the layers and image.
I finished with flowers, lace, pearls, a heart charm and a sentiment. I also added glitter to her wings.

For my card I used the image The glamourous girls, coloured with Promarkers.

I made a baby crossfold card using the stork image, coloured with Promarkers.
I die cut my stork and added to a fancy oval then added pearls all around the edges.
The papers are from Prima marketing's heaven sent range, as well as the flowers.
I created a crossfold so I could have the hidden message tag inside. I added ribbon and lace and some rose ribbon to finish.
