Scrap Affair Challenge

There's a new challenge over at the Scrap Affair  Blog this week. The challenge is to use
Pink and Brown on your cards. There's a nice prize for the winner, so go and check out this lovely new challenge blog. The challenge runs until April 11th so there's still plenty of time to get your entry in.
This is my example for the DT team.
The stamp is a little Prima set kindly sent to me by my friend Nadia, (available at the Scrap Affair online store) I stamped her and then coloured her with Copics, cut her out with Nestabilities and then layered her onto some backing paper added the little shells and the drink which were also in the stamp set. The punched edge is a fiskars punch.
Have a nice week

Penny Black Saturday Challenge Wk 142

The challenge this week at Penny Black Saturday Challenge is "Green" in honour of St Patricks Day. Had a think and out came my Penny Black frog collection. I love this happy little froggy.
I stamped and coloured in Copics and cut out with Nestabilites and layered onto green spotty paper. I added flowers, sentiment and the glitter ribbon strip which was an absolute bargain from the QVC shop in Shrewsbury (highly recommend it if your in the area. I got loads of sets of stuff all at £1.99 a pack) but then had to haul it around with us all day.
Here's the pic of us carrying all the bags of goodies from the QVC shop.

Have A Nice Weekend and hope the weather stays as good as it looks today for us all.

Hero Arts Birthday Cake

Made this card towards filling up my box of "just in case" birthday cards with no particular person in mind. I love the doodlebug backing paper with the sherbet colours.
I stamped and coloured with Copics, layered onto Nestabilities and then onto the Doodlebug backing paper. I added ribbon, buttons, Hero Arts sentiment and lots of Stickles Glitter glue.  I also added this picture to my flikr account and was so pleased to get a "Sweet Tweet" link on Twitter  from Hero Arts themselves about it.
Have a Nice Day

I was excited to be asked to be a DT member for the new store and blog and below is a sample of just one of the Stamps that they will be selling, Isn't she lovely....I bet she doesn't really eat cakes though with a waistline like

I coloured her with copics and layered her onto pastel card adding the sentiment from LOTV and the flower and button embellishments from stash. Of course I finished off with Stickles glitter glue.
