Retro Chic

Good morning... er afternoon!... not so warm today so thought I'd better do a bit of housework first, not my first choice of an enjoyable way to spend a morning but sometimes I have to give in and vacuum up the dog hair! Wouldn't think that a short coated dog could distribute so much hair so far...and I won't even mention the dog slobber...still my lovely girl is worth it!

Anyway my card today is for our new challenge at Fab n Funky, sponsored by The Paper Shelter. Our lovely hostess this week is Wends, it's always worth a visit to her blog, not only does she make beautiful cards she writes such lovely blog posts too! The theme she has chosen is 'Retro Chic' -please visit the challenge blog for more information. 
I used my copics to colour this sweet image, of a young 50's girl, actually titled Retro Chic...
Papers from stash, a 'retro flower' punch ...had this for years but still love it. I stamped a little border of flowers, they match the punch so well! and a sentiment.
Thanks for visiting today, hope you choose to play along with this lovely challenge, just click here for loads of wonderful inspiration from my talented teamies!

Say it with flowers

Weekly Challenge!



Hi, I'm back with my GDT card for this week's Saturday Challenge at Catch The Bug, the theme for this is 'Say it with Flowers'. I chose to use this beautiful Rose Bud Tag, which I printed twice, coloured with copics then cut the rose image from one of the tags, shaped it using a ball tool and adhered it over the image to add dimension(sorry, doesn't really show in the photo!). Papers are Anna Marie Designs - Blissful Cocoa, the heart diecut is Tim Holtz, and the corner one is a China die. I've added a scrap of lace, some narrow ribbon and a stamped sentiment.

A little bit grumpy!


Good morning, time foe a new challenge at Sweet Stampin' this week the theme is 'myth, magic, fantasy'. To make my card I coloured this cute digi image, A little bit grumpy, from The Paper Shelter. I've had this image for ages and used it several times, it's lovely to colour and I've seen that look on my granddaughters' faces when things aren't going quite their way!  The stamped  sentiment is from a set by Paper Smooches.

There's lots more to see over at Sweet Stampin' Challenge Blog, my lovely teamies have been busy this week!

Christmas at Sweet Stampin' - May Challenge


It's hard to believe that it's time for the May Challenge already...but here it is! As always, at Christmas at Sweet Stampin', anything Christmas related goes! 
I was lucky enough to win this sweet Aurora Wings digi, Reindeer Sprite, a while ago. It's such a lovely image that I decided to keep my card very CAS so that the focus remained on him. I coloured him with copics. The sentiment is stamped. 
Why not come and play with us this month? Just click here to see what my lovely teamies have created  to inspire you, and to add your own fabulous Christmas make.
Thanks for calling by
