Pink Xmas

Here is my card for a few challenges. The colour theme was taken from the Passion for Promarkers challenge which was pink or purple xmas cards...i chose the pink since its my fav colour!
The sketch i followed is from Papertake Weekly. It was a fun sketch to use! The papers are from a Rose Tinted Christmas.  The image is used is Sugar Nellie Cozy Maggie. This is the first time i have used this image. I got it from Funky Kits a few weeks back because they were selling lots of Sugar Nellies at ridiculously low prices! The snowflake is from  my Christmas cart for my Cricut. The charms, ribbon and gems are from my stash.
I am also entering the Tip Top Tuesday challenge which is Anything Goes this week.

Pink Tilda!

This is my card that i made for the Just Magnolia challenge which is a sketch by Dawny. I love her sketches, just right up my street and a dream to work with! The pink paper i used is a cut off from a paper that i had in my stash and the spotted one was i got in the sale at Hobbycraft for 25p, it has nothing on to say who is from. The image was coloured by promarkers. The square is embossed with the swirls folder using my cuttlebug. The ribbons, flowers, pins and pearls are from my stash and the sentiment is a Forever Friends stamp. 
The other challenges i am playing along with are the Totally Gorjuss Challenge and Our Creative corner challenge. The challenge at Our creative Corner was to use as many embellishments as you can. I used lots of pearls, 2 pins, lots of ribbon and flowers. I hope this is plenty!

Heres are the links to the three challenge blogs i have entered; - A Sketch by Dawny - Embellishments - The More the Better!

Halloween's Coming!

Here is my Halloween treat bag that i made today. I thought i had a Halloween Tilda stamp in my collection but i couldnt find it so i had to just used this one and coloured her in with Promarkers and used colours to suit the theme. I made the bag from a cut from my Cricut Plantin Schoolbook Cartridge. Its a lovely shape, just that bit different. The sentiment was cut from my Wild Card Cart aswell as the bats. I used a touch of glossy accents on the bats and sprinkle with glamour dust. This was such a easy make and my daughter just loved it! She has took it already and has a few sweets in the bottom!
There are a few challenges this week with the Halloween theme so i here are the blogs that i am playing along with; - Halloween Special!!

Traditional Tilda!

This is my latest attempt at playing along with some challenges! The Challenge over at Crafty Emmas Store Challenge is to create a tag, the tag shape is cut from my Cricut Plantin Schoolbook. The papers are from a Papermania pack that i bought recently and the white mat was embossed through my Cuttlebug with the snowflakes folder. The colour scheme fits with the Totally Tilda challenge which is traditional Xmas green and red. I coloured Tilda in using my Promarkers and used glossy accents and glitter to sparkle her up a bit.  Over at Papertake Weekly the challenge is 3 of a kind so i have used 3 gems on each layer to finish the tag off. My sentiment was cut from my Cricut Wild Card Cartridge. I have also played along with A Spoonful Of Sugar challenge which is Winter Wonderland.

Here is a list of the challenge blogs that i have entered! - Traditional Red and Green.

Seeing Double!

This is just a quick post to my card for a few challenges that are about this week. The first challenge i am playing along with is the Just Magnolia Challenge. The challenge over there is 2x2 (2 of everything!) As you can see i have used 2 flowers and leafs twice, 2 sets of 2 gems, 2 DP's, and 2 charms. The charms are recycled from older cards that i have not given to anyone! It was harder than i thought using 2 of everything! The papers are from Bo Bunny and are scraps pieces that i had left over from other cards i made. I also used scrap cardstock from my scrap box that sits at my feet as i craft away. The Passion for Promarkers challenge is Recycled so i hope that all my scraps and old charms count! The colour theme of pink is fitting with two other challenges, I love Promarkers and Lets Craft and create. The image is coloured with Promarkers and the image of Tilda is fitting with the challenge over at Crafty Catz. The sentiment was cut from my Cricut Wild Card Cart and i sparkled it up a bit with glossy accents and glitter. I have also entered the card into the challenge at Craftalicious as the challenge is "Anything Goes".

This is the list of links to the Challenge blogs that i have played along with today;

Papertake Weekly's 3rd Birthday!

This card is my entry to the Papertake Weekly 3rd birthday challenge. The challenge was to pick a favourite challenge from the past 3 years! I had great fun searching through the archives, there is so much talent out there and i got lots of inspiration along the way.
The Challenge i chose is ;
Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow!
I chose this because i really must make a start on my Christmas cards and also to try out my new Cricut Xmas Solutions Cartridge. I cut the snowflake from this cart and covered in glossy accents and stardust. The image of simon and lola is a fav of mine and i have coloured it with promarkers. The embossed mats are from the snowflake cuttlebug folder. The  ribbon, gems and sentiment were from my stash.

I have completed the blog hop already and left comments on the DT blogs. They are all so talented and there are amazing prises up for grabs along the way!

Sparkling Tilda!

 Hi, Its good to be back online! I was on holiday for a long weekend and when i got back my internet was down, anyway sorted now and can now get stuck into some of the great challenges that are about this week.
For this card i used a layout i used before for a challenge and loves it, so simple! The colour theme matched 2 different challenges, Stampin Bs and Fab n funky. I am not a fan of black white and red but i actually think it has turned out ok! The image of Tilda is coloured with promarkers and i have used glossy accents and glamour dust to sparkle her outfit up. The swirls were from a sizzix die i have had for ages, it actually is a flower with a swirl stem but i have cut off the flowers head and jut used the swirls. Again i have used glossy accents and glamour dust to sparkle. I added some pearls to the swirls.
As you can see from the picture below i have made the top layer so it opens up to show the hidden a tag inside. I used a brad to hold it shut by just catching the edge of the card stock under the side of the brad.

Here is the link to the challenges i have played along with this week. - Black White + One other colour. - Glitter and Sparkle.
