Taurus ATC

April 30th 2014

Another great challenge at the Wicked Wednesday ATC Challenge Blog - Jenn comes up with the most amazing sponsors & themes - we would love to see your entries for this week!

Sponsor for this challenge is Delicious Doodles - why not check them out and grab an image to play along with like the one I have used & create a "Taurus" themed ATC!

January Down Under...

April 27th 2014

I decided to do a sunny page for January in my journal using 2 images from Little Miss Muffet Stamps and enter my page at their "Anything Goes Challenge"! Images used are "Casper Silvermist Dude" & "Sonny Honeycloud Life's a Beach" - perfect images for this themed page.

LOL I know for most of you January is not a sunny beachy time but obviously here Down Under it's Summer and time for being at the beach!

Background is acrylic paints and stencilling. Image was printed on blending card, coloured with Copic Markers and fussy cut then adhered to the page. I stamped the January 2014 wording on with Stazon ink. I love Summer but we are heading towards winter so it was fun to make a bright cheery creation!

Protectress of the Bees....

April 26th 2014

A bit of a statement with this card!!!! Some of you may have heard of the Bee population problems in Europe - I didn't know anything about it until recently when my lecturer started a discussion in my Horticulture class - most interesting!!

So my card for the Just Some Lines Challenge reminder uses one of Jehanne's newer images "Fairy Huntress" as she looks like she could also be guarding the bees!!

Papers are digital from Betsy Rainbow Etsy Store - just the most perfect papers for this card's theme!

Maybe do a search on the Internet to find out more info on the "bee" issue if you aren't aware of what is going on!

Don't Just do Something - Sit There!

April 23rd 2014

LOL a fun "Humour" challenge at The East Wind Challenge Blog. I bought a few East Wind images awhile ago and haven't had a chance to create so I decided to print off this cute "yoga" gal and create a card for the challenge. I found the Yoga Quote on the net and thought it was perfect!

Patterned digital papers are from the Digital Scrap Etsy Store - I thought the flowery papers were nice & peaceful & nature inspired for this Yoga image.


April 22nd 2014

Some new digi stamps to play with from Little Miss Muffet - here is one of the new ones I bought over the weekend to enter their current "Distressed Challenge" at their Blog. I've distressed all the edges of my patterned paper and also the little "wish" tag.

I've used the current sketch from The Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge to lay out my card and couldn't help adding a few embellishments: feathers, muslin & hessian flowers.
I had some extra time this Easter weekend to make a few extra cards with some images I have been wanting to "play" with and just haven't had the time so I was very happy with my creative time over the past few days!

Live Simply in the Moment....

April 14th 2014

Sharing a pair of cards made with new release digital "Silhouette" Stamps from Gecko Galz plus the honeycomb paper is available as the freebie for this month at the site so make sure you grab it and create! The text patterned paper is also from Gecko Galz along with the "Live" sentiment - I'm certainly promoting Gecko Galz today!!!

I used 2 of the images from the Silhouette Set but I used the same sentiment for both as I thought it was the perfect wording for each image.

Live simply in the moment.....

"Just Gab" Enjoying Spring.....

April 5th 2014
 A new month and a new challenge at the Just Some Lines Blog! The theme for April is "Easter or Spring". LOL I'm happy to create spring theme as it's Autumn here so that means Winter is coming - maybe I can hold it off with my Spring thoughts!
For my card today I've used a new image from Just Some Lines "Just Gab" along with some bright and flowery patterned paper from Crate Paper - love the colours of these.
Remember there is always a freebie image at the blog so you can join the challenge or pop over to the store and grab something new!
