Treacle Toffee Sticky wings

Hi everyone, well it is fall and time for fairs and such around my part of the world, and for my fall inspiration for today I have used a sweet image by Heather called Treacle Toffee Sticky Wings. She is making some yummy caramel toffee apples. I have used copics to color her which are listed below, and  have added Stardust Stickles to her wings


The papers are from Stampin Up and old retired set called summer Picnic. I have used Pacific Point and Real Red, card stock, along with some color dots, in Real Red and Old Olive, and Satin ribbon which I colored using Pacific Point re inker and alcohol. The sentiment is from the Stampin up set called  Something Sweet, and the Apple is a stamp from the Perfectly Preserved set, stamped in two pieces and cut out and placed on the card.
Thanks for looking, have a great day

Black and White with one color

Hi Everyone, this week we are having a fun color challenge at Come and Get It. It is Black and White with one other color, the only exception to this is skintones, or grey for shading white. We are sponsored by Eureka Stamps and Time 4 Tea Designs, and we were given some images to work with. I am using the image called Cat and Ball from Time for Tea Designs for my card.
My color of course is pink.
Here is my card

As you can see, I have decided to leave the kitty white, I used some cool grey to add the shading onto the kitty. I have colored in the tongue, the ears and the collar in pink, as well as parts of the ball. 
I have used a paper from a DCVW stack for the background, and added some pearls in the corners which I colored black with my Prismacolor black marker. The sentiment was added using Memento ink and it is from the Catitude set from Inkadinkado
Thanks for looking and have a great week.

Snowflakes and Sparkle

Hi All our challenge this week at Holly Jolly Christmas Challenge, is Snowflakes and sparkle. I have used an image from QKR Stampede on my card which is one of our sponsors. The image is called Selling Snowflakes. so I have colored him with Cops, then cut him into a rectangle and place him on a banner cut with the Banner Framelits from Stampin Up. I have added some paper behind him. The paper is very old, and can't tell you where it came from. I also stamped some snowflakes using a retired set from Stampin Up called Serene Snowflakes. I have added Dazzling Details to the snow coming down around him as well as the snowflakes in his box.
Thanks for Looking.

Feature a Creature

This week at Come and Get It, we have a new challenge, featuring creatures, I have used a stamp from Stamp and Create from Saturated Canary called Ratatouille for my card.

I then used a simple layout, with the colors of the card stock being white, Pool Party and Wisteria Wonder, I embossed the white panel with a spellbinders embossing folder called Twisted Hearts. I have added Sweet Shop Designer paper banners to the edge, punched with banner punch. I then added a couple of color dots and sequins. The final addition is silver embossed Happy Birthday Sentiment.

Feathered Friends

Hi All this is my card for this weeks challenge at Holly Jolly Christmas Challenge. This week we have a great challenge and that we are featuring our feathered friends. It is a special one close to my heart of course because of my love of all birds. Anyway for the challenge I chose to use one of our arctic friends the penguin. This little guy can be found at our sponsor Crafty Sentiment Designs. He is darling. I have colored him with copics, then used Dazzling Details on the ice and on his pom pom.
I have added some retired designer paper from Stampin Up, and then put a bow using the 5/8 inch Satin Ribbon. and added the sentiment from Hero Arts to the bottom of the card.
Thanks for looking
