Fun in the Sun!

Hey all!
I'm back again with a card for the new Pollycraft Challenge, this fortnight Lisa has chosen FUN IN THE SUN, perfect considering the weather we've all been having recently! Here's my card using one of the Lil' Dumplings characters, Nipper...
This is a small card (4"x4") so I've kept the embellishments to a minimum. I have to apologise though... I went a bit tantastic with my Promarkers and gave Nipper a nasty case of sunburn on his face... oops! He's definately had his shades on though!
Hope you can join in the challenge this fortnight, you could win yourself some fab digital stamps from Pollycraft! Pop by the challenge blog for all the details and to see the fab inspiration from the other DT girls!

Cheerio to Cupcake Craft Challenge

Hi folks!
No card from me today... I just wanted to say that unfortunately Cupcake Craft Challenges will no longer be running, at least for the foreseable future. I have been on the Cupcake DT for what seems like many years now, we have totted up a fantastic 250 challenges since Cupcake started and I have made some really great friends there. Sadly, Faye, our lovely Cupcake mummy has had to make the difficult decision to close Cupcake... well at least take a sabbatical so no more Cupcake challenges for a bit! I hope you've enjoyed playing along with us over the years, maybe we'll be back sometime in the future. For now though, I'd just like to send a big hug to Faye and all the Cupcake girls... hopefully I'll see you around Blogland! Thank You!

Ruby, Ruby, Ruby, Ruby...

Hiya folks! I just can't get that song by the Kaiser Chiefs out of my head... it's what made me chose the new challenge theme over at Pollycraft Challenges today... RUBY RED! Also RUBY is the birthstone for July. Here's my card, using Shelby from the Lil Dumplings range at Pollycraft...
We'd like to see RED as the dominant colour in your creations this fortnight. Red isn't a colour I use a lot of... it kind of scares me when I colour with it lol! I coloured her with Promarkers... I thought I'd give her red hair too... so I hope she's used Factor 50 sunscreen with her complexion! I really enjoyed doing this little card (it's 4"x4" so dinky), and I used paper scraps from my scrap box. The little bikini I have had FOREVER... I thought it was perfect for my card. If you join in the Pollycraft Challenge, you could get your hands on a £10 voucher for a shopping spree at Pollycraft Digital Stamps! There's also a Craft for Credit scheme that Paula is running, you can find the details HERE! What are you waiting for? Stuck for ideas? Pop by the challenge blog and check out all the ruby red lovelies my teamies have made!

Creating a Scene

Good morning all! Another sunny day here, I could get used to this! 

Today at Passion for Promarkers we'd like you to Create a Scene! I've added a little fence, clouds and grass to my card, here it is...
The super cute image is called Abi and Pony and has been supplied by our kind sponsor this week, DigiStamp Boutique. They are offering a HUGE 6 digi images of choice to one lucky, random winner! 
I loved colouring this up with my Promarkers, obviously as there is a horse involved! Looks a bit like my horse, same colour and she even has a bit of a belly from all the grass she's been munching! To create my scene I added grass (coloured with Flexmarker "Chartreuse") and fence die cuts, little button flowers and the clouds are doodled then cut out! Simples! Thanks for popping by, hope you can join us at Passion for Promarkers!

Nursery Rhymes at Little Miss Muffet

Hi peeps! Firstly I just want to say sorry for not visiting you all lately, I've been away and had no internet so had to schedule a few recent posts. Hopefully I'll get around to see you all this week. Ok, we're all about nursery rhymes at Little Miss Muffet Challenge this fortnight... we'd like your projects to be inspired by a nursery rhyme, here's my card...
and here's the rhyme that inspired my card...
I wrote a letter to my love (or A Tisket, A Tasket)
I wrote a letter to my love
And on the way I dropped it
A little puppy picked it up
And put it in his pocket
It isn't you, it isn't you
But is it you?

Cute eh? Now this cutie is from the Polka Dot Pals range at Little Miss Muffet Stamps, she's called Katie, don't you just love her ringlets?! I coloured her with Letraset markers. So if you'd like to be in with a chance to win 2 digi stamps of your choice the pop by the challenge blog for all the details, and take a peek at all the fab DT work while you're there.
