Celebrate with Southern Girl's!

Hopefully this has posted as scheduled as I am away on school camp with my son for a couple of days!
It is great that you have stopped by today as we are celebrating at Southern Girls Challenge as this is our 100th challenge. So both teams have created something for our "Celebrations" challenge using images from our sponsor:


Lacy Sunshine

Sorry about the poor quality of photo, took it at night and have not had another chance to retake the photo. I coloured the image in with tria markers and added kindyglitz. I embossed the purple cardstock with happy birthday, die cut the heart banner and cut it in two and added hearts to the side of the image. I finished off the card with the rik rak, buttons and rhinestones! 
I hope that you will join us at Southern Girls this challenge and share your celebration cards!

Christmas At Elisabeth Bell's World!

Wow, can you believe Christmas is only one month away.... My Christmas shopping is nearly all done but not ready in any other way :(
So it is time for a new challenge at Elisabeth Bell's World and this month we would love to see your Christmas creations featuring any of the amazing Elisabeth Bell images.
I created a card using Christmas Light which was once sold at Whiff of Joy:
This didn't turn out at all like I had planned but I still love it! I coloured Christmas Light in with tria markers. I originally had her mounted on a diecut oval but I just wasn't happy with it. So instead I stuck her on foam dots then placed the rhinestones around her. I didn't have white cardstock to make  a folded card so instead cut up these pieces of white card stock and joined them with eyelets and ribbon. To finish off the card I added the Merry Christmas sentiment and the buttons and inked around the edges of the card!.
I hope that you will join us this month at Elisabeth Bell's World! Be sure to stop by the Elisabeth Bell's World Blog for all the challenge details, including the prize and to see the DT's amazing creations!

Baby It's Cold Outside!!

It's time for a new challenge at Craft Your Passion and our theme this week is "Baby It's Cold Outside". You don't necessarily have to make a Christmas creation, anything that represents the cold - an image, embellishments, papers etc!
This week we are sponsored by
Delicious Doodles

Here is my creation


I coloured Snow Cuddles in with tria markers and added kindyglitz to the fur on her coat. The paper was from my scrap stash (which never seems to end, lol), then added the ribbon, the snowflakes (both buttons and diecuts and the big button! I really love the way it turned out.
I hope that you can join us this week at Craft your Passion.

And here is my take on the sketch
I coloured Christmas Surprise in with tria markers and added kindyglitz to her fur trimmings.The papers are from a Kaisercraft christmas paperpad, then I just added the buttons and ribbon.
I hope that you can join us this fortnight at Seems a Little Sketchy.

Pumpkins or Turkeys at Craft Your Passion!

Hi. It's time for a new challenge at Craft Your Passion and this week we would like to see your creations with a Pumpkin or a Turkey on it! I'm guessing it's coming up to Thanksgiving  soon. We don't celebrate that here in Oz so I decided to choose a halloween image from our sponsor this week:
Bugaboo Stamps

The base of my card is embossed spotty paper from my scrap stash. I then added the orange paper to lift the image off the black and grey. I coloured the image in with tria markers and I coloured in the cute little halloween characters twice so they could pop off the page. I then added the ribbon and the buttons (which I actually thought were purple till I saw the photo).
I hope that you can join us this week at Craft Your Passion.

Something Beginning with B at Craft Your Passion!

Time for a new challenge and for a change I have been totally organised with this card made last week and now a pre-scheduled post... I wonder how long I can keep this up..lol
Anyway, the challenge at Craft Your Passion this week is Something Beginning with B. Our sponsor this week is Diane's Daydream Designs.
Now being that I made this card at 1am and thought I was making it for a different challenge I had to add a couple of B things and I'm probably clutching at straws... So my B things are Bling (rhinestones) and Buttons (The little snowflakes).
I used this pre-coloured image from  Diane's Daydream Designs as well as the small buckets of snowballs. I also used the DDD sentiment. I  then added the diecut snowflakes with some Bling, added the buttons, then used distress stickles on the Snowballs.
I hope that you can join us this week at Craft Your Passion!
