I have made this card as part of the Blog Candy Challenge over on the Forever Friends challenge blog There is a chance to win the lovely candy you can see on the right!
I have used the Forever Friends 'Black and Gold' range stamps, coloured with copic markers, and have cut out the image using a nestie shape, inked the edges and used some contrasting ribbon and flowers from stash. The paper is from a HOTP pack I found lurking in my drawer, I have also added some pearl stones from the black and gold range to the corners. I would welcome your comments. Thank you for looking.

Made for a challenge on the Docrafts forum. The challenge was to use a Country Companions image of any type, so I have used a stamped image, coloured with copic markers, and to make a shaped card and a handmade embellishment of some sort, I have made a 'faux' button covered in matching paper and added some peel offs and inked the edges of the paper for definition.
Thanks for looking and I would welcome your comments.

This is the card I have made for the Friday Sketchers Challenge and for the Basic Grey Challenge , which this week is to use something recycled. I have used a circle punch to create a faux button form a kitchen roll centre, which I have inked and embossed. The Tilda stamped image was donated by Hazey J (Thank you!) and I have coloured her using copic pens. I have used Basic Grey 'Euphoria' papers, with ribbons, flowers and trims from stash.

This month, the challenge over on the Forever Friends challenge blog is to use no design papers! I have combined this card with sketch #145 over on Friday Sketchers
To make the card, without design papers, I have used co-ordinating cardstock pieces, inked the edges and stamped the corners, to the front, I have inked an embossing folder and embossed with the Cuttlebug, I have used a Martha Stewart punch for the cardstock strip across the front and have used papermania roses and flowers, and a punched leaves to go round stamped image. I have used copic pens to colour in my image. Some Stickles added to flowers for a bit of bling! Thanks for looking and I welcome your comments!

I have added this latest easel card to enter for the Lili of the Valley challenge #86 Bev's Sketch and also the Polkadoodles 'Flower Power' Challenge - to make at least 3 handmade flowers.
I have used some Kay & Co papers, and have created the flowers by scrunching up nestie cut shapes and then inking for effect. I have used a LOTV stamp in front of a Polka Doodles stamp, coloured with copic pens. Adhesive ribbon and brads from stash.

I have made this card for the challenge over on Sweet Sketch Wednesday - which is Arlana's sketch. I have used a freebie kit of the new 'Pampered Pets' range, which came free with the the latest issue of Creativity magazine. I have to say, I normally prefer to stamp my images, as I enjoy stamping, and am not normally a fan of die cuts like this, but am quite pleased with how it turned out. I have stuck to the elements which were in the kit, and not added anything else. Many thanks for looking.

I have made this card for the Sugar Bowl challenge , which was a sketch with a theme 'clean and simple' I have added nothing more than some embossed paper and embossed vellum to match and have rotated the sketch and added three bears from the Cotton Rabbit stamp collection. I have coloured the bears using copic pens and handcut them out to mount onto card.

Another post today, I feel like I am on a roll! It may be the excitement of having a day off! Anyway, I have made this card for the Forever Friends sketch challenge sponsored by Stitchy Bears this week. I have also entered this card for 2 challenges on the Docrafts forum, where the briefs were 'K' for khaki and key lime pie colours, and to overload your card with lots of embellishments etc! I have added ribbon, flat flowers, roses, punched leaves, a transfer, inked edges and lots of bling stones, and have used stones and shaped scissors to decorate inside. Thanks for looking!

Happy March everybody! I am enjoying a couple of days off starting today, and have started my day by making some cards for some challenge on Blogger and on Docrafts forum.
This card is entered into the following:-
Totally Tilda Challenge #17 - Fruity Tilda
Just Magnolia Week 95 Mina's Sketch
and for the Three Tildas Challenge on the Docrafts forum.
Totally Tilda required you to use some fruit on your card, I have stamped 2 little strawberries, which are coloured with marvy markers and I have used some stickles to enhance them! I have used Magnolia stamps for the bench and for Tilda sitting down, with aquatone background and a stamped sentiment, and have added glitter to the edge of the nestie shape.
The three tildas challenge was to use three stamped images, so I have used Tilda,, Bench, and the strawberries, although, technically, there are four if you include the sentiment!! Thanks for looking and I would welcome your comments!
