This week's Pollycraft Friday Freebie is this fabulous house - they say that people start to think about selling up and moving this time of year so this is perfect for all those "You've Moved" or "We've Moved" cards!

Magnolia Tilda with Jolly Roger

This is my 3rd post today! Just wanted to show this one off - I'm rather pleased with it lol!
This is Tilda with Jolly Roger and she is one of my favourites from the new release - isn't she gorgeous? Decided on a pink and black colour scheme - perfect for a girl pirate, right? The paper with skulls is actually a page from book and I just stamped on a skull randomly on it - it worked out quite well. The "ribbon" is actually a shoe lace - how is that for recycling! Thanks for looking!

Just Magnolia's First Birthday Challenge

Here's my entry for the Just Magnolia's 1st Birthday Challenge based on a fab sketch. Have used the very gorgeous Fairy Tale Tilda who's just waiting to change that frog into a prince! Although you can't see it (photography is not my strong point!!) her wings have been glamour dusted. Thanks for looking!

Sketch Saturday #98

Haven't entered this challenge for a while - where does the time go? This was a fab sketch and it is yet another male card! The image is from the newly released "Critters and Cogs" from and was perfect for this card. Why is it when I think of monsters they always end up green or orange?? Sorry about the picture, the sun was shining too much (what a complaint!) and I struggled to get a decent one. Thanks for looking!!

Friday Sketchers Challenge #97

This is the first Friday Sketchers challenge I have entered - really loved the

sketch this week so decided to join in! I quite like male cards (I know not a lot of crafters do!) and the new images from "Critters and Cogs" are just perfect (although there are some female robots in there too). Sorry about the quality of the picture, the sun was shining and it was the best I could do (what a terrible complaint to have!!) Thanks for looking!

Pollycraft Monday Challenge #38 "Anything Goes"

Just loving the new "Critters and Cogs" collection from the very talented Paula over at Pollycraft. There are 12 digital images to choose from and a fab set of greetings stamps which go perfectly with the images (need to get my hands on those lol!). Anyway onto the latest challenge "Anything Goes". Decided to make a set of snap cards for my monkeys using the new releases - really easy - printed out loads of images (in sets of 2 of course lol!) then coloured 2 the same then backed onto a set of playing cards I had lying around. Added an image onto the front of the tin and let the playing commence!! Just remember the Pollycraft Monday challenge is now weekly!
