When you Wish upon a Star....

...makes no difference who you are, anything your heart desires, will come to you....yes we all know that song very well..don't we??

Since I tidied my my wee craft room last night, I came across some rubber that needed a bit of love and re-inking ( I don't want to talk about the ones that have gone walkabout) so here we have "Wish upon a Star" from Sugar Nellie. I coloured this little cutie with copics, the papers are from Bo Bunny(not sure of the name, it says back to basics on the thingy but not sure that is the correct name of this collection). I added some snowflakes punched with my MS snowflake punches...then added lots of glitter and pearls....hope you likey!!

Fancy that...

My second post today and it's a pink one....I coloured this image last night and I have to say I think I am quite chuffed with the way it turned out although it was supposed to be blue. I cut my blue papers for the card and started colouring and for some unknown reason I went ahead and used pink...anyway!!

The papers are from Fancy Pants - Summer Soul which really are very pretty, the flowers have been cut from a die-namics rolled rose die, 2 of them are felt...the swirly flourish is from Magnolia and the image is from Saturated Canary and I coloured her with copics and the added lots of glitter, gems and pearls.

Sweet Stampin' DT card...

Good morning Saturday bloggers...well 2 sleeps to go and back to work. Before that though we have another challenge over at Sweet Stampin'...use the colours of your Nations flag.

This week we are sponsored by Letraset...and our monthly sponsor is Joanna Sheen..

Now I swithered about going with just the blue and white as in the colours of the Saltire but thought I was a bit limited so I have gone for the colours of the Union, white and blue.

The papers have been in my stash forever and are from Making Memories. I layered each of the layers onto red cardstock and added some stitching. All the die cuts are from various MFT die-namics dies...which I love!! The stamp is No. 1 Fan from Sugar Nellie which I coloured with promarkers....hope you likey!!

Sugar Bowl Challenge #88

Good morning sugar lovers and my scheduled post as I may still be in bed as I am on holiday!! Well another miserable rainy day here in Scotland but I think that's pretty much it wherever you are....I think we will soon need to build an ark!!

Today's challenge over at The Sugar Bowl is the fabby sketch below...

...and of course with the optional extra of "summertime".

As always the prize for one lucky winner picked at random is 4 Sugar Nellie stamps of your choice from Funky Kits....

So for card I have used Lil Sweet Pea from Sugar Nellie which I coloured with Distress Inks this time. I have been neglecting them a bit but as I was on holiday I thought I would have more time as colouring with DI's do take longer....I also edged the image and the message with ink aswell, the papers are from MME Lost and Found Sunshine and Prima Madeline Collection...although they are not the normal summer colours, I thought they were the perfect match for this little cutie!! the scallop has been cut with a MFT die-namics label as has the flower and leaves...lots of glitter on her wings to finish.

California dreamin'...

Good evening bloggers and my late post...I have not long returned refreshed from my run...need to shift that last 1/2lb so I have taken to running...phew!!

My card this evening resembles our lovely weather...not..but wouldn't it be lovely just to have one sunny day. I bought this digi from Saturated Canary, she is called Cali Girl and I coloured her with I had to pay a little more attention to the skin colouring as I wanted her to have a sunkissed glow however I don't think she had her cream on her face as her cheeks are a bit well fired..I also added glossy accents to her sunnys to give them a bit of a shine. The papers are Fancy Pants - summer soul which are perfect for that summery look card. The flower is cut from my MFT Hibiscus die-namics die...

Sprinkle Some Love...

Happy Sunday everybody...well I have been playing again with some new rubber and this is what I came up with last night. I have been trying to blog it for a while but my internet is being a bit dodgy today.

Now i don't have an oval die so I have to cut my ovals out by hand and I was a bit sleepy last night whist cutting and got carried away and I accidently chopped the little flourish that is out of the oval...well it's patched in and hopefully I have enough other bits to look at on the card that takes your eye away from the!!

The papers are MME- Breeze, the flowers have been cut with various MFT rolled die-namics, the flourish is from Magnolia. The stamp is of course from sugar Nellie called Sprinkle some Love which I coloured with copics and shaded with polychromos, I finished with some gems, pearls and glitter...hope you like.
