Happy birthday to Ewe!

Pattie's Creations is giving us a very popular
challenge this month - Birthdays!

I used her new image "Baa to you" ...

The image includes both sheep. 
I love the shocked look of the face of the one on the left!
I paper pieced the background, stamped the houses
and trees and fussy-cut around them to add them to the scene. 
Embossing around the edge of the whole thing
and hand-drawn faux stitching, finished this card.

Home Sweet Home!

Our challenge this time over at The Colour Crazy challenge 
is being sponsored by Createful heart stamps.
I used the image "home sweet home" which was lovely to colour. 

I used my alcohol markers to colour and added a sentiment from 
Pink Petticoat (sadly, no longer trading).  
A few punched butterflies and some spotty paper for the background 
(along with a few embossed lines) finished this card.

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

Wishing you...

The challenge at Patties Creations this month.
is: Anything goes!

This is an image I have had my eyes on for a while...
it's called "Wishing well."
I doodled a background - making it up as I went - with my alcohol pens. 
I used fineliners to draw on the dandelion clocks in the foreground
Embossing a single line around the Kraft card and drawing a black line with the 
"Wishing you..." sentiment, finished off this card. 
(I will finish off the inside of this card with "... a happy birthday!" or  "... well!"
(depending on what occasion I decide to use this card for. )

Vintage camera

Twinkle lane designs  are our sponsor this week,
I got this amazing image - perfect for my Dad!
It's called "Vintage Camera."

I looked up some old cameras on the www and coloured this one with the
 same kind of colours (with my alcohol pens).
I added a camera film diecut - which I have had for years.
A few different papers and an embossed card with stars on, sit in the background -
which I inked around the edges. 
The "smile!" sentiment also comes with the image. I cut this freehand, to look like 
an old camera flash.
I used a die for the happy birthday sentiment...a bargain which I 
bought in The Works - and cut in half. 
A couple of punched gold stars finished this card.

At Patties Creations this month, with Valentines day drawing near,
Pattie has challenged us:  "love, love, love."

I wanted to make something a little different.. possibly a card i could give to my husband.
I used "Cherry Blossom Branch" image(coloured with my promarkers)

and inked all edges with a grey chalk eye.

Playing around...

Over at the Colour Crazy Challenge this time, we are being sponsored by Dr DiGi.
I got the fabulous image called "Solitaire Saul."

I coloured the image with my alcohol pens and used 3d foam on the guy and the back of the chair.
I coloured the cat on the desk to look like our cat, Bella
(As this card will be for my Hubby). 
I copied the cat and made it slightly smaller, and popped him at the guy's feet
- and coloured him like our little kitty, Chester. 
The window is a diecut (on 3d foam) and the scene behind the window is actually
one of my Hubbys pieces of encaustic-art!

I may add a sentiment to this card at some point, but I'm not sure what yet.

I would like to add this into the following challenges:
Crafty Friends - atg - 1 Feb
Southern Girls - atg - 7 Feb
Crafty Creations - atg - 1 Feb
I love promarkers - atg - 3 Feb

New years, Cheers!

Pattie's Creations are back with our January challenge -
"Anything goes."
I have "Cheers to you ladies!" -  a new image, drawn by Pattie...

I thought this image was great, and knew a few people I could make cards 
for with this image on, so made 2 cards! Lol. 
I coloured with my promarkers an used a dovecraft paper pack for the backing papers...
"tea party" i think the papers are called.
The sentiments under the images are from Pink Petticoat -
 who are sadly no longer trading. 
I punched a couple of stars too.  
These cards just make me smile.
