Our nieces birthday

This weeks challenge at Glitter n Sparkle is
"anything goes" again! 

Lacy Sunshine is our sponsor this week - and I have used
"the ultimate creative craft girl LS superhero" image.

I knew this would make a perfect card for our niece, who is soon to be 14!

The image was lovely to colour.
I played about with the background paper...
knowing I wanted the pink star paper and white.
The white shape in the middle was cut from my new die
which I got in The Works.  
(Its a nesting die... set of 6 I think, £5. Bargain!)
ALISHA and 14 were die cut in my bigshot. 
I handcut the bunting.
She loooves bunting. (like me!)

First day at school

What a great challenge over at Patties Creations this month -
"Back to school"
Perfect for my little nephew, who is starting his first day 
in reception, in September...

I used Patties image called "ABCD with characters."
I decoupaged the little pictures, popping them on 3d foam.
I coloured each letter and picture with my alcohol markers
and added some punched stars.
I embossed and inked around the edge of the image and 
added a computer generated sentiment.

Game of Thrones themed...

It was Hubby's birthday last week, while we were visiting Yorkshire
and I had made him this birthday card...

We both LOVE Game of Thrones... 
so thought I would try to base his card on the show.
I downloaded the font, quickly and easily
played with the "winter is coming" quote, and 
used Tyrion Lannisters words... 
"That's what I do - i drink, and I know things!"
(Much like my hubby! hahah !)

He loved the card and thought it was very clever. 

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Little miss muffet - atg - 8 Sept

My first Christmas card!

The great "Ikes art" is sponsoring our challenge this
week at Glitter n Sparkle -
where the challenge is the old favourite...
anything goes!

The image is called "winter robins" 
and I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it.
It was a lovely image to colour. 
The sentiment was on my pc.
I added some micro glitter and liquid pearls to represent the snow.
The gingham paper and the bunting are from a
christmas dovecraft paper pack from a few years ago. 
(The bunting had loads of strings across a page...and I just
fussy-cut a string of bunting out.)

I said to my mum, 5 weeks ago, that over the summer holidays,
 I would like to make some christmas cards... I have just managed this one so far...
but there's still a week to go. 
You never know!

Best fishes... pisces.

This weeks challenge is all about the "zodiac" 
at Glitter n Sparkle, 
and I used the image "pisces" from Artsi Doodles...

I coloured the fish with my alcohol pens
..I used 6 different shades of yellow and orange.
I mounted them onto 3d foam
and made the background by colouring bars of blues
and aqua greens - using about 8 colours of blue and aqua.
I punched some small circles, in aqua 
and added them as bubbles... like a border.
I also popped a little highlight in the top right of each bubble,
 and covered each one
in glossy accents. 

The finishing touch was my handwritten words...describing
the characteristics of Pisces. 

I hope you will join in the challenge this week, with us.

I would like to enter this into these other challenges:

Dad's birthday

It;s "anything goes" challenge
at Patties Creations this month! 

I used an image I have been hankering after for a while now...
"star quilt"

I knew that my Dad would love this, coloured up, as I knew it would
remind him of his holidays in America and Canada.

The colouring took a while, to be fair. Haha.
My promarkers are up to the job though~! 
I added a couple of other details with my white sakura pen..
 like a few small hearts in the stars
and some stripes, spots and waves. 

The sentiment is from Pink Petticoat and the 
'Dad' is diecut.

3 little birds...

Well... How cute are these 3?

I love 'em!

They are from Sparkle n Sprinkle - the download is called "Wilson".
The cute 3 come with 2 sentiments. 7
Obviously, I have just used one on this card.
Its a great set - as you can use all the birds together like I have, or seperately.

I paper pieced each bird... colouring in their eyes, beaks and feet, 
with my alcohol pens.
I added a leafy backing paper
and a bit of embossing around the edge.
When I decide who I can use send this card to, I have room at the top, 
to add a name.
