Pink Paris!

This weeks challenge over at Glitter n Sparkle, is
Anything Goes! 

I love this set of images...and you get loads of 'em!
This set is called J'taime Paris.
I have included the Eiffel tower, bike, table and chairs, poodle and "bonjour!"
They all come as uncoloured images and pre-coloured images!
For this card, I selected to sue the pre-coloured images this time. 

The border is diecut and i punched the flowers and doodled a bit on them. 
Th backing paper is the first of my pack form Lawn Faun.
I LOVE polka dot paper and thought the pink would work beautifully.

Red and White

Our challenge this week, at Glitter n Sparkle 
is to "use red and white."

I loved this simply beautiful image this week
 for this challenge, from Bugaboo 
it's called, "flower tags: tag 2"

I wanted the flower to be the focal point 
and was desperate to use my new stamps... 
we went to Canada last week and
I had the joy of visiting Hobby Lobby again...
I bought mainly: embossing folders, stamps and a few dies.
The stamp I used here is one of my HL new ones. 

I embossed the background and cut out the centre, to fit the 
flower frame on 3d foam pads, and matted the embossing on red.
I carefully placed the stamp inside the frame
 and prayed it would work first did!

Blue owl

Yey! I got to use an image from
Kitty Bee Designs this week, for our
"sun / moon / stars / space" challenge at
 the Glitter n Sparkle blog.

I won the sentiment on a challenge a while ago, from digi makeover 
- they have some lovely ones over there!
I coloured carefully with my promarkers
and chalked the edges of everything.
The star embossed background is enhanced with
a new / silver star glitter tape!
I bought this on our holiday on Canada... earlier this week.
I bought quite a few different rolls - 
from the dollar store! 
Works out at about 60p per roll...and there's tons on each roll! 
:)  I love a bargain  :)

Cheers, lady!

Oooh, I have been hankering after this FAB image 
its called  "Wine drinker: lady with glass of wine"

The challenge over at Glitter n Sparkle this week, is to:
"use a die or punch" easy challenge for me! I LOVE using my dies and punches!
So... the frame is a spellbinders die. 
The borders are punched and the little tag is cut from a die.
I embossed the hearts in the background and 
coloured the image with my promarkers. 
Glossy accents has highlighted the wine in the glass.
I could give this card to many different friends and colleagues..
and when I do decide to give this one, 
I will probably write their name on the bottle label.

Spring is here....

At Patties Creations this month, 
you have a choice with our monthly challenge. It's
"Eastertime or Springtime."

I chose Springtime...

I absolutely adore this image - and have done, for a long time.
It's called "sweet nectar" 
I have lots of these plants in my garden....
Its called bleeding heart and I think I have about 
5 of the pink ones and 2 white ones. 

It's a real spring flower. 
Infact, mine is peeping up from it's soily winter blanket as I type.
I shall add some pics when it's grown and full. 

The hummingbirds are so lovely too. 
The image actually only comes with one hummingbird...the bigger one.
I flipped the image and made it smaller,
because as soon as I saw this image, I knew I wanted
it on the front of an anniversary card for my parents-in-law.
Their anniversary is on 2nd April.. they had a springtime wedding!
I decoupaged the larger hummingbird on 3d foam, to make it stand out a little.
