Hair to Die For!

Oh I WISH my hair was as long and thick as this little lady's! Isn't her hair just stunning?! Well it's for that reason that I chose to colour her up, I couldn't resist! I am drooling over her golden locks... bet I have a dream about it tonight!

Anyway, she's for our new challenge over at Little Miss Muffet Challenges and we couldn't have made it easier for you to join in... the theme is ANYTHING GOES

In case you're wondering what this sweetie is called... well she's Tress Dancing as is available in rubber from Make It Crafty over at Little Miss Muffet Stamps! And she's not alone, you can check out the other stamps in this range HERE, totally gorgeous!

Make It Digital

Good morning friends! Do I see the hint of Spring around the corner, or is this just wishful thinking? When will this rain ever stop? I just start to get my hopes up when we have a pleasant, sunny day, then BAM! The next day it's grey and pouring down again!

Well if you're stuck inside 'cos of the weather, why not join in our new challenge at Passion for Promarkers... MAKE IT DIGITAL... just use a digital image and/or papers, simples! Don't forget you must use your Letraset markers though (Pro, Flex, Tria, Aqua etc etc). Here's my DT card...
What a stunner this little lady is! She's called 'Glitz' and is part of the Dollie Daydream Collection. She was kindly offered to the DT by Nikky over at Polka Doodles, who incidentally is our generous sponsor this week! Nikky will be offering this gorgeous digi stamp to 5 lucky winners! I coloured her with Tria and Flexmarkers, added some glitz and a little digi sentiment, et voila!

Short and sweet today, ta ta!

Meet Dudley...

Hello, hello! Today it's a quick inspirational post from me... I've used a cute Pollycraft digi stamp DUDLEY BALLOON on my card today, he's one of the new releases this month over at Little Miss Muffet Stamps. There's loads of stamps to chose from, both rubber and digi... check out my post below this one as we also have a blog hop going on at the moment! The other DT girls have also made some fab cards to inspire you, pop over to the Little Miss Muffet Stamps blog and see for yourself!

I set myself a challenge with this one, I had to colour him in Copics ONLY! As I only have a few Copics, all bright/primary colours then it really was a bit of an experiment, especially as this was the first image I've coloured in Copics. I think he's turned out ok, considering ;) I did use a blue Flexmarker for the sky though as I don't have a light blue Copic marker. He's such a cute dinosaur!

Thanks for popping by today!

This Little Piggy...

Hey! Hope you're all doing ok, I've been a little distracted from blogging lately... last week I was slicing courgettes on a mandolin and well let's just say they slice fingers better! So after a trip to A & E, 3 hours later I had a glued finger with a mummy size bandage on it! Ever seen kids struggle to colour within the lines... well that was me... took me 3 attemps to do this little piggy! BUT today I'm back with my DT card for Passion for Promarkers Challenge, and this week it's my turn to chose the theme! As Valentine's Day is just around the corner I've chosen HAVE A HEART... you don't have to do a Valentine's card, but your projects must include hearts! Here's my card...
How cute is he?! This little piggy (no, he doesn't go to market) is a from Pollycraft but is unfortunately no longer available (sadly the Pollycraft online shop is no longer open), he's called Hogs and Kisses (he came with the sentiment). I coloured him with my Letraset Flexmarkers (3rd time lucky)! Remember, if you join in the challenge you MUST use your Letraset markers (Pro, Flex, Tria, Aqua etc). This week we have some fab prizes as we're lucky enough to have two generous sponsors, Letraset & Angel Crafts! Pop by the challenge blog for more details!

I'm entering my card into the following challenges:
Graph'it Marker Challenge - Lovey Dovey
Papertake Weekly Challenge - With a Heart
Hogs & Kisses Digi Stamp/Sentiment - Pollycraft, Flexmarkers - Letraset, Heartfelt Digi Papers - Digi Stamp Boutique
