Pigtail Penelope

Hi everyone: This is the sweet Pigtail Penelope from Sandra Caldwell, a new addition to the store this week, I have used copics to color her, and have made a frame for her using my silhouette, the frame is made with a stitched rectangle cut from Sara Hurley, and the top and bottom pieces are from another artist, under split borders.  I added rhinestones to the corners and crown. I then added some flowers from my stash and some from Wild Orchid Crafts to finish off the card.
Thanks for looking

Use a Doily

Hi Everyone, I am so excited to have a new sponsor at Come and Get It Challenges. It is the fabulous images by Sherri Baldy called My Besties. I love these images and am enjoying playing with them every chance I get. Anyway our new challenge this week is to use a doily on your card. So simple, and easy with these images. You get a chance to win 3 of the images that are featured on the blog.
Here they are, take a look at these fabulous images.





Are these not all fabulous Images, I have made my card using the sweet image in the frame, but I have colored two of the others too, so will be making cards with them as well soon.
Anyway I hope you will join us in the fun and you can win three of these 5 images.


For my card as I said i used the one in the frame. I colored her  with Copics, and cut it out, then added a black border around it. I added my doilies, in the background added some gorgeous flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts, and then the sentiment is Silver embossed lettering. 
thanks for looking and I hope you come join us for this easy fun challenge and your chance to win some fabulous images. 

The second image was also colored with copics, the background is a woven embossing folder by We Are  Memory Keepers, then added some 5/8 ribbon, the sentiment and flowers on the ribbon are embossed foil and the flowers are from my stash. 
Thanks for looking

Happy Mother's Day







Today we are celebrating the ladies over at Come and Get It. Our sponsor this week is A Day For Daisies and I am using the image called Mermaid Wish. I have colored the image with copics. The background was colored as well with a very light blue, hard to tell. I then cut out some elements with my Silhouette Cameo with white, and colored them with distress inks. I mounted the image onto some pumpkin pie card stock then onto a piece of Tempting Turquoise card stock which I embossed using a new folder from We are Memory Keepers Waves. the elements I cut out I placed where I wanted them and that finished off the card. I left off a sentiment for now, as I wasn't sure what I wanted to use.
Thanks for looking.

Hi Everyone today is my first card for Paper Nest Dolls Challenge blog. This image is brand new and his name is Owen with Toy Boat.

Now go on and hop over to the blog and see what the other Paper Nest Dolls Team has made and join us, as it is an anything goes challenge all the time. Thanks for stopping by.

Geisha

Here is a Geisha card I have made using an image from Julia Spiri, which you can find here; New Gatefold Card using Geisha available here:https://www.etsy.com/…/digi-stamps-paper-crafting-digital-s…
I printed the image off large, and colored it with copics. I decided to make it into a gate fold card, I have used the Easter Blossoms set from Stampin up for behind the image and on the other side of the gatefold. I have added a few cherry blossoms to the card to finish it up.
Thanks for looking.
