My first Christmas card this year!

I was so thrilled to receive this cute Christmas image:
"Welcome Christmas" from Crafty Sentiments,
for our challenge at the Colour Crazy challenge.

Before colouring the image, I selected the backing paper. 
That helped me to decide on the  colours of the snowman's scarf and earmuffs.
I coloured him with my alcohol markers, made an embossed 'snowy hill',
stamped the sentiment and die-cut an icicle border, to hang from the top of the card. 
A few twinkly bits here n there, finished off this card.

A card for a 13 year old girl, please!

A friend asked me to make a card for her daughter,
Millie, who was turning 13 and into make-up! 

I chose to try and make it girly, without being too young.
(If you know what I mean!)
I used 2 patterned papers, makeup images, (which I fussy cut!)
diecuts (numbers, letters and the flourish in the corner)
and punches (the butterflies). 
A bit of bling here n there, and some glossy accents finished off this card.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Girly card

This week, over at the Crazy Colour Challenge blog, I got the delightful image:
"T-shirt soda girl" from Lemon Shortbread...

This is a lovely summery, fresh image, so thought I would keep the papers
in the same theme....fresh, fun, summery colours. 
I cut some little pieces of bunting 
punched a few butterflies
and inked the edges of all the papers.
I coloured the cute image with my alcohol markers.

Birthday ice-cream

This month., over at Patties Creations, the challenge this time is...

I loved using "Ice Cream Sundae"
and decided to colour it with my promarkers 
and make it look like it was a favourite ice cream - neopolitan - 
(vanilla, strawberry and chocolate ice cream) 
with a squirt or two of cream, some raspberry sauce, some sprinkles and a cherry!

Such a fun image needed fun birthday backing papers, which I found in my stash.
A diecut fancy square, a couple of die-cut stars, and a stamped sentiment, finished the card.
