Just Magnolia and stampin up for the weekend

Afternoon all, the weather here is awful it's not stopped rainin all day so i stayed in and made some cards. This weeks magnolia challenge is to use buttons on your project i combined it again with SFTW. i must say i struggled a bit with this one SFTW have gone back to the 70's with some song titles

Tangled up in Blue – Bob Dylan
Three Times a Lady – The Commodores
Seasons in the Sun – Terry Jacks

I went with Tangled up in blue-Bob Dylan. Tilda is from the summer kit and she is just so cute i coloured her with prismas, the background paper is from the sweet nothings pack and the flowery paper was a freebie from Nicky.

Papertake weekly

OMG miracles do happen 3 posts in one day. I was just going to get ready for darts ( i play once a week) anyway tonight is the pairs and my friend and me have been drawn against 2 county players so we'll prob get knocked out tonight I'll let you know how we get on. i had a quick look online and seen the papertake weekly sketch so thought I'd do a quick card before i go. i really like this and no patterned paper in sight.

thanks for looking and wish me look for the game.

sketch saturday

I'm back again this time with a challenge card for Sketch Saturday. i Followed the sketch and wanted to try some new things so i coloured the whiff of joy image in with chalks(never used these before) then i added clear embossing ink and clear powder a couple of times and then put it in the freezer for half an hour then when it was frozen i cracked it and i think it looks a little like glass. the other new thing i did was i made the swirly background paper myself using my cuttlebug and divine swirls folder i will deffo be doing that again.

dont think i'll be back again today but you never know stranger things have happened.

2 challenges in one.

Well i finally got some whiff of joy stamps so i can enter the challenges on their blog woo hoo. it's a great sketch this week and i really enjoyed this one. Image is coloured with my prismas again and i distressed some of the coredinaions card i really like the effect it gives.I added some pearls so it also qualifies the the cinsperations challenge where you had to use pearls or gems on your project.Another 2 great challenge blogs and I'll deffo be back to do more.

thanks for looking shell x

Mina's Sketch and Strawberries dipped in chocolate

This week over at the just magnolia blog there is a fabulous sketch by the uber talented Mina, and the stampin for the weekend blog the theme is strawberries dipped in chocolate yum yum...... i have used a tilda image that i think is just one of the cutest I've seen she was coloured with my prisma pencils( I'm so loving these more and more every time i use them)..

I have been combining these two challenges for the past few weeks and i just know that one week they are both going to have sketch's to follow what will i do then. I'm going to see what other challenges i can find I'm off work for the next 2 days and intend to spend the time in my craft room.

thanks for looking and any comments you leave i love reading them all.

Just Magnolia and stampin up for the weekend

I've combined these two challenges again, the just magnolia blog wanted to see charms on your project and stampin for the weekend gave us two fab sketch's to choose from. i went with the second sketch by Donna. Tilda was coloured with my prisma's, the papers i used are from the Claire curd range, the little flowers i made myself i don't think they look too bad for a first attempt. and believe it or not i couldn't find a single white button in my box, feel a shirt destroying session coming on.

see you all soon shell x

Papertake weekly

morning everyone hope all's well out there in blogland, it's been so hot here not that I'm complaining or anything i just don't feel like doing anything. I had a few cards to make so i made one using the fab sketch this week over at Papertake weekly. I cant remember what make the papers are, i never can when they are out of a pack, think I'll start writing on the back what the make is. Image is Anya from the greetings farm, coloured with pro markers.

Thanks for looking i may be back later if i get the other cards done that i need to make.
