Sadies Dragon

Good morning fellow bloggers. It's time for a new challenge over at Diva's by Design. The challenge this time is Fairies and Fantasy sponsored by Crafts and Me.

For my interpretation I have used Sadies Dragon which is available to buy from Crafts and Me in digital format

I Coloured my image using a combination of Copic's and Prisma pencils.Her hair is entirely coloured with Prisma's using ginger root, dark umber and light umber. The papers are First edition spring feast which I picked up at the Ally Pally craft show on Saturday.. Her wings and the dragon egg have been sparkled up with a little stickles. The flower I am really please with as I made it myself. I used my Cricut and Flower shoppe cartridge. I saw a demo at the weekend making paper flowers with a spellbinders die and thought I can do that............Work in progress I think but I am still pleased.  Any way nip on over to the Diva's blog check out my teamies work. They have some fantastic work to inspire you.

Thanks for stopping by

The White Rabbit

Hello bloggers.....Thank goodness its Friday that's all I can say. It's been a bit of a week for me. I had oral surgery at the hospital on Monday and am only just starting to feel human again.  I had a botched root canal treatment a few years ago and had infection after infection. The hospital had to remove the tooth and then scrape the infection from my jaw bone. Not pleasant I can tell you. Any way enough moaning the worst is over and the really good thing is that there is a new challenge over at Stampin for the weekend to take my mind off it.................................

The challenge is feeling floral. So anything with flowers really.....The challenge will run for 3 weeks and is being sponsored by In 2 Stamps. The winner will be selected at random.

Ok so this is my offering

I have used a Gorjuss girl image called the White Rabbit (hence the title) I coloured her up using Copic's with a little bit of glaze on the watch face. The papers I am really pleased with, They are a K&Co self adhesive mat stack which I found at Hobby Craft. The cute little sun flower was cut using my Cricut and cartridge walk in my garden. The ribbon is from my stash. The metal sentiment was a real bargain, absolutely free on a magazine a couple of years ago.

Do take a mosey around my fabulous team mates blogs as they have some great inspiration projects for you.

******This was supposed to have posted at 9am this morning so I am not very happy with blogger at the mo. It wasn't until I just got in from work that I noticed it hadn't!*******

It's Friday and that means that we have another challenge over at Stampin for the Weekend. We are sponsored by Simon Says Stamp. To be in with a chance of winning this time we want to see your Christmas card Creations.  If your stuck for inspiration pop over the the SFTW challenge blog my teamies have really out done themselves this time and created some wonderful cards.

I have used an old Basic grey Christmas stack of papers matted on to a scalloped edge card. To create the doily I used a Martha Stewart punch around the page. A real bargain it was too £12 from the raft barn sale!. The image is a Hanglar, Unfortunately I cant remember what she is called. I coloured her using my Copics.

Good afternoon everyone. It's time for another challenge over at Diva's by Design and I am very bad because this should have been posted this morning! (sorry teamies I wont do it again).

The challenge this time is friendship sponsored by Joanna Sheen.

I have used first edition papers matted onto Kraft card. The image is Teddy Bea coloured with Prisma pencils. The bottom of my paper has been punched using a Magnolia die and the large scallop I cut using my Cricut. String and ribbon are from my stash.

Thanks for dropping by 

Jewellery making, creativity and a whole lot of rambling.................

So its been quite some time since I posted anything here and although I still love card making I haven't made anything for about 3 years...
