My boys are outside screaming their lungs out, so I thought I'd let them stay out there and I would make a start on this post !! LOL! I only have one card to show ( you'll have to wait to see that till the end) but I have lots of news to share!!!
So let's begin!!!
Firstly a reminder that The Tartan Blog Hop starts on Wednesday (9.30am UK time) HERE
at Gill's Blog!! There may be prizes along the way so join in the fun!!!
Also I am excited to tell you that I won first prize over at Polka Doodles Challenge Blog
and won Public Vote at Quirky Crafts!
I also got top three at Really Reasonable Ribbon's Ramblings
!! This was all for my first ever corner bookmark which you can see a couple of posts below!!
As a result of winning public vote at Quirky crafts, I have been invited to be a Guest designer for their next challenge so I am super excited about that!! I only hope that I can make a card worthy of the position!! I'm sure that I can though especially after making this card:
This would have to be one of my favourite cards so far!! I feel like I have stepped it up to another level with my creativity!! After seeing my friend Sam's
card where she used her chalks to create a sky on one of her recent cards, I decided to have a go at creating a sky using a punched out scallop circle and my chalks!! I also used chalk to create some grass but you can't see it behind the picket fence!! When I originally put this card together I didn't have the houses behind the fence but I felt the card was missing something so I coloured them up and added them and pop! they just made the card!! I then stuck Tilda on and added the flowers! That is where I left it but the next morning when I looked at it I felt it needed something to fill the gap between the houses and Tilda so I added the butterflies!! I coloured Tilda and the houses in with my Tria Markers, copics and H20's. (if you would like to know what colours I used please feel free to contact me!!) I've added kindyglitz to the flower tilda is holding and on the butterflies!!.
I am entering this card into the following challenges:
OOHH, I almost forgot.. I was given another award last week from Trina over at Trina Makes Stuff
. Thanks Trina!!!
This award was created for bloggers who have fewer than 300 followers, but put a lot of love and heart into their work. It's a great way to share blogs that might not otherwise be seen or ones you want to share with others.
As a recipient of this award I must share the love and pay it forward by:
1-Creating a post where you blog about the Liebster award & and reveal your 3-5 blog picks
2-Let them know you chose them
3-Copy & paste the blog award on your blog
4-Have faith that your followers will rally & show their crafty love back out to those you awarded
So who will I pass this award onto you ask?
Well of course first is my wonderful friend Sam over at Sew Many Crafts So Little Time
. She makes the most gorgeous cards and her colouring is so amazing but not many people get to see her fabulous talent!!! The second person I give this award to is Angela over at It's all about me! and a little about them...
. Angela does so many gorgeous cards and scrapbooking layouts, you'll get plenty of inspiraton there!!
And the third person I give this award to is Fiona over at Creative Kaszazz Butterfly
!! Fiona makes some amazing cards and off the page projects!!
I know I have given these three talented ladies an award before but I believe they deserve to be awarded again and you will see why when you visit their blogs. So please head on over and show Sam. Angela and Fiona your appreciation by leaving them a comment and becoming a follower!!
One more thing before I go!! I just won some more blog candy!! Yippee for me!! I just won this gorgeous prize from Amy over at A Thousand Sheets of Paper
