C4E sketch #29

This is my card for this weeks C4E sketch. You can find the sketch and the lovely DT work HERE.
I have used the lovely Alva stamp from Magnolia coloured with pencils. The PP is some k&co from my stash, CS and blooms are Bazzill's from the C4E April kit.

The second card is using this weeks sketch, the April kit from C4E and one of the digital stamp owls from the owl set at C4E!

I used markers to colour the owl, I thought I'd go for a different look with this one...not sure??!!

I am working on some new digital stamps designs, new kits and lots of LO's at the moment!

c4e sketch #28

It's Sunday which means a new sketch has been posted on the C4E blog!!
This week along with the sketch we are asking you to use Pink, Brown and Green!!
Check out the challenge and the lovely DT work HERE.
There is only a hint of green on my card and to be honest, not the best card I've made this week! The owls are one of my digital stamps called "Mr & Mrs Owl" which can be bought HERE. The image is coloured with watercolours. The papers are from an old QVC kit, CS is Bazzill, bits and bobs from stash. I got the idea for the little flower at the top of the card from one of Chloe's LO's on UK Scrappers. Uk Srcappers is a fab forum with lots of lovely people and inspiration (link in the sidebar!) I am a sponsor there and part of a team called "The Glitz n Glamour Girlz"
Anyway enough waffle here is the card and a little close up....

I have a little crop this afternoon just 3 of us for a few hours but we may start to meet up regular again, If you live near Weston-super-mare and fancy joining us send me an email!!!

Thanks for stopping by have a lovely Sunday!

c4e 321 challenge and scraplift

The C4E 321 card challenge this month is to use 3 colours, 2 brads and 1 oval shape on your card.
I have used the lovely Alva stamp from Magnolia and Daisy bucket papers.
I have coloured Alva with pencils and sat her on some 3D foam.

This months scraplift is a LO from my team leader and friend Dawn (pink chocolate) on UK Scrappers. The LO is called "wish" and can be seen HERE
I have used April's kit, "fools meadow" for my LO. The LO is the first page of my pre-wedding's only taken a year and a half to start this!!! LOL!!

That's the last of the April challenges for c4e, time to start on the May challenges!!!

Easter hats and gift bags

Hello everyone

On the last day of term, my eldest son had an Easter parade. He couldn't decide if he wanted a hat for the parade or not bless him so I made one for him! Of course his little brother had to have one too! Then my sister asked if I would make her 2 boys a hat each!!

Mikael was a little embarrassed but Alix loved wearing his!
This year I had 11 children to buy Easter eggs for!! So I made little Easter gift bags with a few chocolate eggs, an altered notebook and pencil. I used papers from a free CD from Papercraft essentials to cover the notebooks and pencils (bought from Asda!) and made matching headers and tags.
1 gift bag was for a 1yr old so I left out the notebook and added a little cuddly cat for her.

Friday sketchers #46

This weeks Friday sketchers challenge is a fab sketch from Hedi in Norway. Whimsy stamps are sponsoring this week with a prize of some cute stamps! hop over HERE to see the fab DT cards!
I needed a card for my cousins birthday this week he will be 15! I had no suitable images so I drew this little guy because he plays the guitar, He is also a bit of a maths whizz!

I have coloured my image with pencils, markers and watercolours. The music paper I copied scanned a page from one of my old clarinet music books, printed then added a light green colour wash with watercolour paint. I used a fiskars tearing ruler for the edges. The little music sheet embellishment was the same image squished in psp, printed and attached with a music note brad I found in my stash of brads. I also found the music cake decoration in my little drawers too! The paper is some old American crafts paper I found in my stash.

I was thinking of calling this little guy "rockin' Ali" ???
I will be back with my c4e April challenges soon!
