Kenny K card

Wow I love these images... so funky and different... can see me buying quite a few more of these girlies.. this one is called Download Diva and can be bought HERE I I had to have one as wanted to make a card for my daughters birthday and thought these perfect, hardest choice was which one ! lol... and now I HAVE to have the Drama Queen one too... lol.. as said.. can see my buying a few of these. I have coloured her with pink and lilac as they are Stacys fav two colours... I didnt want to do much to the card as I think the image is so fabby I didnt want to detract from it in any way, so just added a satin ribbon and a pin and button... turned back the su paper I used... and card done..
Kenny K is having a DT call.. (if you saw my posting from the other day)... so if you pop over to Bearly Mine Crafts, all the details are there.
right gals and guys... this is my last card for a week or so.. (unless i manage to do a scheduled post for The Stamping Boutique DT card !!!!).... as I am away tomorrow for a weeks jollies in Spain . so looking forward to it.. meeting up with a few fellow crafters and good friends... bit of sunshine and sangria... and a lot of chillaxing !!! ..:)

Bearly Mine DT Call

Couldn't make my mind up on one.... (funny how all are Mo's images too).

Bearly Mine Craft Blog is having a DT call, why don't you pop over, have a read and a looksee... and maybe enter? Im going to LOL.. just one problem.... have to decide which of my little 'creations' I deem to be one of my best work? (cos I can find something wrong with all of them, not that I a perfectionist or nothing? ) lol .... or is that too self critical? So, have to have a little think and then post here what I reckon later, now if I had been a bit more... organised, I could have asked you lot out there who drop by, to make suggestions for me! but... running out of time rapidly, as shouldn't be here gassing as is lol.
I still not sorted stuff out for Spain yet,well.. did order Euro's today... so thats a start I guess. :)

got to dash now, will be back in while to update and pick a card out, hugs J
ps... how come we got brilliant sunshine now that I on verge or sun hunting in Spain... grrrr lol

(I have to admit to not being 100% about this card.. however we all entitled to an off day. :))

I am away off to Spain on Thursday, and over the next couple of days , really do need to pull my finger out and get my bags packed, Euros got, case weighed and craft stuff sorted... Cos... as per usual... I not done a blooming thing yet lol.. still.. PLENTY of time !!!! hehe. See what I mean what I say (should be my middle name)

Oh thats another story, lol , I couldn't go back later and get exact size again.. no, of course I didnt save the resize image... don't be silly FAR too sensible idea. ...

paper, brads and flowers from stash (and retro punch used AGAIN) lol

I have one more challenge card ready to go, for tomorrow, and bar a bit of red on her socks, funny enough, it would have been another monochrome, but in blue. ! wasnt meant to be, just turned out that way, anyway you will have to wait til tomorrow for that one.
Hope you all have a fabby weekend...

My GDT card for WinkWinkInk

Hi everyone,
Well I can finally show you the card I done for WinkWinkInks Challenge blog, as their June Guest Design Team Member. :) Thank you so much for having me there.. it was lovely while it lasted LOL...

One small problem I had.. I have decided I need to go to SpecSavers soon..... 'cos.. when I got my instructions for the card.... (it might have been because I was soo excited,)... but I never saw.. the words.. "2 or more"... so there was a lot of swearing going on in my craft room at the time I was looking for tan or beige cardstock, in particular, and also... I didnt think I could use my copics... so .... with a right sulk on... this is the card I come up with... needless to say, I much prefer copics to watercolouring lol... but I don't think that comes as much surprise to people that know me LOL.

So.... peeps.. hop over to WWI, and READ the instructions for this months card challenge, and you have a go, you could be in with the chance of winning 3 digi images. This is one I couldnt wait to get my 'paws' on :).. I will be adding the other two images I was lucky enough to win, over the course of the week... so... refresh... hehe ... its... ............................
W - Watercolour
I - Inked Edges
N - Nestabilities or Punch
K - Kraft cardstock... Tan or Beige
and you only need to use 2 or more !!!!!!!! :) Good luck everyone, I will be popping by to check out this months cards made by all you little creative genius's hugs xx

This is the challenge card I have made for I Did It Creations Challenge Blog,
this week it is a sketch and also Creative Card Crew, colours of pink and green, I saw that Robyn has a freebie on her blog, by Lauretta, Jade in the Sun, so I thought I would grab her and make another challenge/DTA card. It keeps me out of mischief and trouble if nothing else. LOL...

Robyn, at I did it creations, is also looking for 2 more DTM's so if anyone is interested, have a looksee while you are over there, and get cracking with a card for the challenge.

Once again SU bp, and the gingham was from stash, punched flowers using the small retro punch and the rest of bits from stash also. Coloured ... copics.

And oh oh.... guess what I have won..... lucky lucky me.... has won.... drum roll...... some...... COPICS !!!!!!! .... how cool is that.. and I could not have won a better prize... cos everyone knows I LOVE MY COPICS lol... just got to wait for them to turn up now... all the way from across the pond. :)

Hope everyone is out sunning themselves whilst they can... I have been in and out of craft room and sun all day... making the most of it, as will probably be raining by Monday LOL... don't you just love British weather !
Enjoy the rest of your weekend.. and hopefully I will be back tomorrow with another card...

Totally Gorguss

The theme this week over at TG is... Wings.... as I was meant to be tidying up !!!!! thought I best make use of this image that I had already stamped and coloured up last week.. but not made up into a card.. Just so happens I had a few days ago received some lovely new papers from SU... in exactly the right colours for this image... so saved me heaps of time searching for papers, as I had not put these away yet lol... as I said.. I'm supposed to be having a clear up ! .. been playing around a bit with the tags.. I do like to try little new things, these were made with the cb dies, cut down and used a corner punch to round off the edges, plus not sure if you have noticed but also been dragging out all my corner/border punches that I had hardly used. !!!!! and .. playing again... punched out a couple of shapes from each one, mounted on a dark card, and have stuck inside the lid of the carry case, as I find it a lot easier to look at how an edging will turn out if I have it in front of me.... picture on top of punch not enough.. need it done twice lol...
if remember will take a picture to explain what Ive done.. as Im probably not making any sense, as per usual lol.... hugs xx
