A Girl's Best Friend.....

November 30th 2013
Today is the last day for our "Add at Least 3 Embellishments" challenge at the Just Some Lines Blog so why not whip up a creation with a JSL Image and enter! My ATC has a little silver buckle, a flower and some diamanti's for embellishments! I love this JSL image!

I have another post tomorrow reminding everyone about our current Wicked Wednesday Challenge but this little ATC also fits the "Friendship" theme at the WW Blog - LOL a diamond is a girl's best friend!!!!!


November 29th 2013
Today I am sharing some cards made with brand new images from Maigan Lynn available at the QKD Store! I've just used parts of the images for my creations today. I love to colour Maigan's images - she always has a lot of detail.

I used the November sketch from Kathy's Waffle Sketch File Blog to layout the card - I thought this "Bits & Pieces" Sketch was just perfect for using up my bits & pieces of card & patterned papers that I can never bear to throw away!

I intend to make some cards using the whole of each image so stay tuned for those!!!

Indian Princess

November 25th 2013
A reminder that this month the "Indian Princess" Sets (digi & rubber) are on sale at the Bombshell Stamps Store! If you check out the Bombshell Blog you can find lots of inspiration for using this set as we have been showcasing the images each Monday this month!

I had this great beaded braid I have been wanting to use so I coloured the Indian Princess in the bright colours to match and used some on this card.

Get Embellished!

November 24th 2013

You still have time to enter our "Add at Least 3 Embellishments" Challenge at the Just Some Lines Blog!! There's always a freebie for you to use to create for our challenges so we would love to see what you can come up with!! Today my embellishments are a ribbon, gems & little "be happy" lettering!!

Shaken or Stirred???

November 21st 2013
A creation for QKD today using a great new image from artist Charles Bristow "Lorelei's Martini" !!

I had a great time creating this card and the digital patterned papers from The Digital Design Shop over at the Etsy site were just perfect for this creation - the papers also came with the little glass and olives clipart which just finished off the card perfectly! I used this months sketch from the CLP challenge blog to arrange everything on the card.

I'll be using this image again soon - probably a xmas creation next time!!!

Dots & Stripes!

November 20th 2013

This week at the Wicked Wednesday ATC Blog we are challenging you to use Polka Dots, Spots & Stripes! And we have Heather Ellis as our sponsor this week - she has such cute images like the little ladybird gal above on my ATC! I've used digital patterned papers, some kraft hearts and a gorgeous little ladybug brad - so cute!

And I couldn't resist making my ATC into a card using more of the great digital patterned papers I got from the BelowBlink Etsy Store along with a die cut "Celebrate".

Pin Up Gals

November 18th 2013

Sharing some more cards with new release images from Gecko Galz - these images come from the "Pin Up Girls Jewel It" Collage Sheets. I decided to make a few of them in various colour combo's - again some quick cards that look effective with the gorgeous pin up gals! Patterned papers are also new release from the "Miss Muffett" set - love the soft colours. Each card has a black base card, felt flower and a bit of fibre. I think a set of these would be a good gift - perhaps I'll make some more!!!

As always wonderful inspiration from the DT can be found in the DT Gallery at the Gecko Galz Site!

Thank You!

November 16th 2013

A reminder to enter our "Add at least 3 Embellishments" challenge at the Just Some Lines Challenge Blog! I've used one of the new release images for November - available at the JSL Store! This week my embellies are: photo corners, heart brads & a felt flower!!!

Sharing a "Tribal" themed card using a great image by Lea Barozzi - one of the artists at the Queen Kat Designs store. Patterned papers are called "Tribal Fires" by Gecko Galz - I thought they were perfect for this image and the look I wanted on my card.

"Hoo's" Wishing You a Happy Birthday?

November 12th 2013
I bought a couple of digi images from Sweet Pea Stamps last week by artist Elaine Cox - I love her designs - and decided to play along with the November "It's a Feast" Challenge at the One Sweet Challenge Blog

I've used all earthy tones, lots of patterned papers, lots of layers & lots of embellishments all along the same theme so I certainly think this card is very "feasty" with "lots of everything!!

8 Ball Pin Up Gal...

November 11th 2013
I just could not resist making a card with this image from the November New Release "Pin Up Girls Jewel It" Collage Sheets from Gecko Galz - she is just so sassy perched on her "8 Ball"!!!

Patterned papers are from a Prima paper pad I've had for awhile - I distressed the edges, I also added some great fibre and fantastic charm I got from eBay - I thought the bit of red on the heart & diamond added a bit of colour to the whole thing!

Add at least "3" Embellishments!

November 9th 2013

A reminder post for the Just Some Lines "Add at least 3 Embellishments" Challenge for November! What a fun challenge - who can resist adding lots of little bits & pieces to their creations!!

This card actually started out as an ATC which already had the little hearts & Happy Birthday embellishments - then I added a base card and threw on even more embellies - brads, "Made with Love" charm, butterfly punchies and a ribbon!!

Remember our challenge runs through until the end of November so plenty of time to get your entry in with a Just Some Lines image - a freebie is always available on the blog so you can play!

A new month and that means new releases at Gecko Galz! The image on my card is from the new "Hindu Beauty" Collage Sheets - you really must check these out - some really really stunning & gorgeous images!!!

Background patterned paper is also new release for November from the "Miss Muffett" Digital Paper Set. I added some fibre and gold sticker corners - something quick and simple but soft looking and really the image is the feature.

"Hoo's" Late?

November 4th 2013

I'm still trying to catch up on my Journal Calendar Pages for The Kathryn Wheel!!! So over the weekend I finally got August done! (Now I just have September to do and then I can work on this month's).

I decided to do the pages in "Fall" colours and also enter it in the current Dilly Beans Challenge - I have had the cute owl image from Dilly Beans for some time and hadn't used it so I decided to print some off and have fun with paint and glue LOL!!

I made the days of the week from a leaf die cut, added some branches for the owls to sit in and die cut the "August" lettering. I had very messy fingers after this but I love it!

My card uses one of my favourite Bombshell images - it's from the Geisha Digital Set - I just love the Asian theme!
