CES Challenge 4 - Baby Bonanza

Good Morning! Always glad when Saturday comes around and of course it means another challenge over at CES Challenge! This week's fab challenge is "Baby Bonanza" - always a great theme for a card. My DT card is for a baby girl (the pink rather gives it away, lol). The gorgeous little dragon is Wild Rose Studio's "Fergus with Bouquet" (or indeed Fergie for this card??) with fab mulberry ribbon and pink dew drops all available from

so you have no excuse not to go over there and have a little nosey (some new Basic Grey papers have been added!). The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and anything else not mentioned has been in my stash. I look forward to admiring all your fabulous work! Thanks for visiting!

Sketch Saturday #119 meets Cupcake Craft Challenge #107

Good evening - it's nearly the weekend!! This little offering is for 2 challenges - Sketch Saturday and Cupcake Craft Challenges with the theme of Books and Stories. This card is probably a bit brighter than normal but I had lovely papers which I don't use very often - Sassafras "Hog Heaven" and the most gorgeous fabric roses and buttons from Making Memories. The image is from Squiggle Stamps and is called Daisy - I made her into Little Red Riding Hood which was one of my favourite books when I was young (I'm from an age when the Ladybird books cost 10p lol!). Used some paperclips at the top and some dew drops to finish it off. Thanks for visiting!

Friday Sketchers #118 meets Wild Orchid Challenge #5 with a touch of Just Magnolia Week 71

Good evening - halfway through the week already! Been working on a couple of challenge cards so here's the first one entered in Friday Sketchers #118 , Wild Orchid Challenge #5 - Pearls and Pins, and Just Magnolia Week 71 (that's quite a lot of challenges for me lol!). The Tilda image is the cutest with the very gorgeous Prima "Fairy Flora" papers available from Crafty Emma's Store. The flowers are, of course, from Wild Orchid Crafts and the pin is my own creation! The pearls are from Kaiser and were the perfect colour. Thanks for visiting!

CES Challenge #2 - Floral Frenzy!

Hope you're having a good Saturday so far. Grr I did schedule this for earlier today but Mr Blogger appears to be away for the day and didn't bother! Time for another fab challenge over at CES Challenge - we couldn't believe how many entries there were for the very first challenge from a very talented bunch! Anyway, back to the challenge which this week is Floral Frenzy! Get those flowers dusted off, whether its part of the image, on the paper, handmade flowers - the choice is yours! Crafty Emma's Store has some fabulous flowers in at the minute so if you're a bit short, then have a look (there is also a sale on!!)

Also available from Crafty Emma's Store are some of the products I have used on my DT card for this week - papers are Pink Paislee, the teardrop pin (coloured with a promarker), key charm, black dew drops and gorgeous mulberry ribbon. The image is a digital one from Digital Pencil and is perfect for a teenage birthday - what do you think?

The fabulous prize for this week's challenge is a Basic Grey Card Kit:

I'm really looking forward to seeing what you come up with for this one! Thanks for visiting!

Just Magnolia Week 70 - A Sketch

Morning! I'm not usually on the computer so early but I had to print off some stuff for Playgroup and thought that I would add this card at the same time! This week's challenge at Just Magnolia is a sketch by Dawny P which was great to work with. H has several birthday parties to go to in the next few weeks and this is one of the cards. The image is Pirate Tilda and the papers are Rusty Pickle's "Pirate Princess". I have to admit it was a bit fiddly getting the beads onto the bakers twine!! The sentiment is Craftwork Cards and everything else from the stash. Thanks for visiting!
