Fashionably Cute!!


It is my turn to post over on The Digi Bell's Blog today..I have actually  been quite busy making cards the last few days.. Hopefully going to stay ahead of things from now on... I hope you have been joining in on the blog hop that is going on at the moment over at The Digi Bell's. The DT have created some gorgeous cards.
For this card I coloured up Fashionably Cute which I got as a freebie when I signed up for Elisabeth Bell's Creative E-book.
I think she is a beautiful image and perfect for so many occasions.. I kept my card CAS (as usual I guess) by colouring up the image with tria markers and just having the image as the focal point. I then just added the flowers (which are still a bit wet) and just used a border punch to give the card a bit of shape.
Be sure to join in the hop at the Digi Bell's if you haven't already and join us tomorrow for a new challenge over at Elisabeth Bell's World.

The Digi Bell's blog Hop featuring two new Elisabeth Bell Digi's!


Wow, it seems so long since our last blog hop, but here we are to share not one but TWO new Elisabeth Bell digi images with you... I am the last stop on the hop so hopefully you have stopped by everyone's blogs and been wowed by their amazingness. You should have arrived here from Jennifer's Blog... If not head back to The Digi Bell's blog to see where you should be.

So by now you have met the adorable
BEACH BALL BABY 
and


 BIG SPLASH

I made the first card (after making another card but with the wrong image.. oops) then decided to make a matching card with the other image. I coloured both images in with tria markers, I then used my brother scan n cut to cut out the summer fun sentiment and the oval shape. I punched out the hexagons and border then added the ribbon and buttons. 
Well that is it from me... Head on back to The Digi Bell's blog and leave a comment so you are in with a chance to win these two adorable images. They are available in Elisabeth Bell's digi store if you'd like to get these cuties now.

Anything Goes at Craft Your Passion!

Sorry I have been MIA for the past month.... It was school holidays here (where my son fractured his leg), we had to have our beloved pet cat put down and have also found out a friend has stage 3 pancreatic cancer..... So it hasn't been a great month... But I am now back and have a card to share with you for the Craft Your Passion challenge. We are sponsored by Rick St Dennis this week.
Rick St. Dennis


I coloured "A Tortuga for Frings" in with tria markers. I then used all these fabulous papers that were in my paper stash. I decided not to add any embellishments cos I thought the papers were enough...
I hope that you can join us at Craft your Passion this week

Pepper with Gift!


It is my turn to post over on The Digi Bell's Blog and I have made a card using Pepper with Gift from Elisabeth Bell's digital collection
I must admit I'm not overly happy with my colouring of this image.... I did actually have another image on this card which I coloured beautifully but after photographing and uploading it I remembered I had to use a digi image ad I had coloured a rubber image. Anyway I coloured Pepper with Gift in with tria markers. The backing papers are from our Lynda's fabulous etsy store.
  I just added the ribbons to finish it off.

I used Rory Loves Unicorns from Lacy Sunshine and used the colours from the papers I had chosen... Wasn't too sure how to decorate this so added the chipboard  flowers and the other metal embellishments that just happened to fall out of a jar I was looking in... I coloured the image in with tria markers and the papers were from my scrap stash.
I hope that you can join us this fortnight at Southern Girls challenge.. Be sure to check out the rules as we don't like you to miss out on the fab prizes on offer.

Always Anything Goes at Craft Your Passion!

A new challenge has started at Craft Your Passion and this fortnight we are sponsored by

Fabrika Fantasy


I used this fab pre-coloured image (due to time constraints). YOu can't really tell from the angle I've taken the picture but I cut out the little elf and a couple of the books for a bit of dimension.  I used papers in my scrap stash and punched out the arrows.
I hope that you can join us this fortnight at Craft Your Passion.

1,2,3 TAG You're it at Elisabeth Bell's World!

A new challenge has started at Elisabeth Bell's World and we have a fun challenge for you this month - 1,2,3 TAG You're it! Our very own Lynda is sponsoring us this month so you have the chance to win two sets of her digital paper designs and matching cutting files.. For all the details head on over to the Elisabeth Bells World blog.


I decided to do another CAS card so that all the elements stood out. You may have noticed that I use this image of Zoe Butterfly (Elisabeth Bell's e-book) a lot. I think because she's so easy to colour and because she just stands out on her own. So I coloured Zoe Butterfly in with tria markers, I embossed the white card with the Happy Birthday words, I used my Brother scan n cut to make the balloons, then added the buttons and bow to finish off the card.
I hope that you can join us this month at Elisabeth Bells World challenge just be sure to use an Elisabeth Bells image.
