Sweet card

Seems as if I haven't blogged for ages, but I do have lost of crafty projects on the go at the moment so am still very busy.

Today's girly card was very quick to do, and a nice relaxing way to spend a Sunday afternoon.

The image is from the Gorjuss Girl's range from Sugar Nellie, coloured in with my promarkers. I used DCWV glitter card and K&Co backing papers and a sentiment out of my stash for the finishing touches. I used a black pen for the faux stitching.

It also fits in with a few challenges:

Sketch Saturday - follow the great sketch

Passion for Promarkers - to use Tulip Yellow and Baby Pink coloured promarkers and have stitching on your card.

Thanks for looking

Found a new promarker challenge blog today, so couldn't resist having a play. The blog is called I Love Promarkers and the challenge this week was to use your promarkers, follow the sketch and use spring colours.

I used one of my Tilda stamps, I just think they are so cute, coloured in shades of blossom and pale green. Background papers are K&Co given by a friend and the borders punched with my new Martha Stewart punch.

Will also add it into the Cute Card Thursday challenge too, which were asking for metal on your cards. Although it doesn't look like it, my brad is metal and painted lilac. Not sure if that's a cheat or not!

Anyway thanks for looking, and remember to leave a comment so that I can pop over to your blog too.

A few challenges this time

I have a huge mountain of cards to make for March, so am making as many as I can now to give me a head start.

Loved making today's little card. The stamped image is from Penny Black and is really cute. It has been coloured in with my promarkers and die cut with my Nestibilities on my Cuttlebug. The papers are from K&Co, ribbon flowers, organza ribbon and button from my stash.

Managed to find a few challenges take part in too.

Passion for Promarkers - buttons and bows

Sketch Saturday - follow the sketch

Pile it On - lets see flowers

The Pink Elephant
- use ribbon

A Spoon Full of Sugar
- springtime (I thought the papers on my card looked very fresh and springlike)

Thanks for looking, love to see your comments

I have so many birthdays in March so I thought I would make an early start so I don't get swamped in the rush.

Today's image is one of my favourites a Lily of the Valley stamp, and coloured in using my promarkers. Used backing paper from a K&Co paper stack I've had for ages, and bit of DCWV shimmer card, paper flowers and rub on flower flourish and sentiment from my stash.

Managed to apply it to a few challenges too;

Cutie Sunday, for a nice uncomplicated sketch

Pile It On, to use anything but winter colours

Creative Inspirations, feminine

Stamp, Scrap and Doodle, an open theme

Pollycraft Monday, things with wings

The Pink Elephant, All about pink

You should check out the blogs, the Design Teams have done a great job on them all.
