Tag It

This week at Kenny K's the challenge is Tag It. I keep finding ideas for these little bags, which at I am enjoying making (think i'm just trying to avoid making Christmas cards!) Any way I found this bag on the Whiff Of Joy Tutorials site.
Have used a Kenny K image and coloured her with promarkers, used a glitter gell pen on her fur trim, but I can't get the photo to show the sparkle.

Thank you for stopping by and don't forget to leave a comment as I love reading them :)

Snowmen & A Sketch

This week at I ♥ Promarkers the challenge is for Snowmen. I used my one and only snowman stamp for last weeks challenge and didn't really want to use it again so had to go hunting for another image. Luckily Charmed Cards & Crafts came to the rescue and I remembered I had Dottie & George Christmas collection.
I used the fantastic sketch over at Friday Sketchers, coloured Dottie and her snowman in with promarkers (used a white glitter on the snowman - makes him look fluffy in RL hehe) The papers are from Nitwits, but were free with a magazine :)

Am also going to enter this card into the 2 Sisters Challenge.

Red Challenge

Dottie's World are running an anything goes - red challenge with a fantastic magnolia stamp as a prize! I have admired these stamps for a while but as yet have not purchased any (may have to put a couple on my christmas list :) )

Anyway wasn't sure what image to use for this challenge, I knew I wanted to use a Charmed image but which one. I ended up downloading their new collection called Santa's Little Helpers and I'm really glad I did as they are all just gorgeous. I used All Wrapped Up and coloured her with promarkers and then got stuck with what papers to use, I just couldn't get anything to work. I ended up just putting her in the middle of a blank white card in frustration to look at it later and thought that works! So ended up going all white :) Hope you like her.

Am also going to enter this card into the Creative Inspirations Challenge as they want anything Christmassy/Winter :)

Icy Colours and A Sketch

This week at I ♥ Promarkers the challenge is for Icy Colours and I followed another great sketch from Friday Sketchers.

Dug out a really old stamp for this card, which I brought years ago when I first took an interest in card making, but was never able to stamp it up properly until now. I love using digital images but there are so many beautifull stamps out there, which I have recently been buying, and through trial and error i can now, fingers crossed, get these stamps to work for me. I must thank Rachel Jakes, who makes the most stunning cards, who uses Neenah Classic card and Memento Ink to stamp her images. So off I went to The Hobby House web site and purchased myself some of this card and all I can say is WOW, it work wonders, soooo I have been having ago with all my stamps old and new :)

Anyway back to the card, snowflake paper was a freebie with a magazine, probably from last year and the sentiment is from TLC. Oh and the image is coloured with Promarkers :)

Anything but a square

This week at Kenny K's they wanted anything but a square, so I decided to make a little gift bag. I found the tutorial for this bag on the Wiff of Joy Inspiration blog, think I will be making a few of these for the girls at work :)
Used the fab Mistletoe from Kenny K's Chritmas collection and coloured her with promarkers, the trim of her dress, hat and boots I used a glitter gel pen and used the same pen to colour the snowflakes. Paper is another freebie from a magazine.
Am also going to enter her into this weeks challenge over at I ♥ Promarkers, which is for snowflakes, I hope purple ones count! hehe.
Thank you for stopping by :)

Whirling, Swirling, Twirling Autumn

The Catch the Bug Challenge this week is for a Whirling, Swirling, Twirling Autumn, which I really do struggle with as I dont seem to have anything that says autumn. I did actually start this card on Saturday for halloween on Sunday, but only just managed to finish it. Hope its Autumn enough :)

Used a Halloween witch from Bugaboo Stamps with some other images from TLC and photo shopped them together. Coloured with promarkers and copics with papers from Papermania.
