A few Challenges

I've been having withdrawal symptons as I have been working all week!! After clearing the snow I made this card for a few challenges today. The image is from Pollycraft and coloured with copics but I'm not too happy with the colouring cos it bled quite a bit. The papers are from Stampin Up.

Papertake - open

Flutter by Wednesday - fairy/butterfly and blue, green and white( I have added red too...thought I would post the card anyway but it's fine it it's not counted)

Pollycraft DT Challenge

I was in two minds whether to enter the Pollycraft DT challenge or not...I'm fairly new to this blogging and I wouldn't want to let anybody down if my cards aren't good enough. After a few days thinking about it and having a look some of the other gave me lots of inspiration...especially Faye's's super cool!! I coloured Codi with copics and used colours based on what my Holly would wear...although she's moved to skinny leg jeans now!! The backing papers are from MME of favourite and added a message and some little gems, finished off with some stitching. I also managed to fit this to a few other challenges below. This is one of my favourite tecniques...I just love stamping or using a digital image to colour and cut out and then do some layering to give a 3d effect.

Winter Wonderland

I thought I would make a quick card for the challenge over at Winter Wonderland. I bought this Patchwork Pals set from QVC so there's not much though needed as you have evrything in the's fine if you're short of time but I prefer to make my cards with more work in them....hope you like this one.
