My last card for today is a bit more to my usual style, fancy with plenty of flowers!
I used one of the pretty Emily Luella digi stamps from Crafts and me. This one is greyscale, so although it looks a bit scary when you print it, once you have coloured it with your markers it looks just fine.
The papers are Anne Marie Designs Blissful Peach. At the moment these are my favorite papers and i use them on nearly everything. I added flowers and pearls stamens to finish.

  • Crafts and me Emily Luella Scarlet digi stamp
  • Printer and stamping card
  • Anne Marie Designs Blissful paper pad in peach
  • Mix fo flowers from wild orchid crafts
  • 6x6 card base and white card for matting
  • promarkers

My favorite flowers are Chrysanthemums, i just love how they look like large daisies,{another favorite} but colourful. 


Happy saturday! Today i have 2 cards to share, my first being for the colour throwdown challenge which this week features a sweet colour scheme.
So pretty, right?

So for my card, which i have kept super simple, i used Altenew's Painted butterflies. I used pink, aqua and blue inks and stamped one of the matching sentiments to finish. This is a 5x7 card.

Creative Inspirations: Cute Critters

It is time for a new challenge over at Creative Inspirations and this fortnights challenge is


For my card, i used one of my favorite character stamps from Stamping Bella. This is Petunia with prezzies. I Love Petunia, she is my favorite character from Stamping bella, such a cute little piggy!
I used Crafter's companion signature birthday papers to create my A6 tent fold card. Because my image is a bit smaller, i chose to make a smaller card.
I added a sentiment, from another stamping bella stamp {one of the Bella's}
To finish i added some little stars.

ILovePromarkers: anything goes

It is Wednesday and that means it is time for a new ILovePromarkers challenge. 
This fortnight theme is anything goes, so it is super easy.
For this challenge, we are sponsored by The Paper Shelter who kindly gave us some images to use. This one is A summer Walk
I used Nitwit collections puppy love range as it suited the image and because my image was quite big, I decided not to use embellishments this time and just use a sentiment.

Nature Love

This is my final card to share today. I made this using a saturated canary image, which is now one of my favorites, this is Nature Love. I think i like it so much as i can relate to it.
This image came in one of the subscription emails. I am a bit behind on using them and showing them on my blog, so keep a look out for more using the subscription images. 
I coloured my image with promarkers and used some of the Anna marie blissful papers, this time in green. I added lace and a bark heart, both from LLC and some flowers to finish.


Hair is one of my favourite things to colour on an image so I have plenty of favourites, but mousy brown is one of them. As it is my own hair colour, it is a colour I tend to use a lot. 

Bridal couple

I have a quick card to share today that i made for the last Live and love crafts challenge.
For my card i used this sweet stamping bella image of a bridal couple, coloured with promarkers. The papers are from Anne Marie designs Blissful cotton paper pad, matted on white. I used lace from LLC, along with some flowers and a pearl stamen from Wild orchid crafts.


Christmas with the Cuties: carols or songs

It is time for our second challenge over at Christmas with the Cuties and this months theme is carols or Christmas songs.
I decided on jingle bells, as you can see by the sentiment.
I used an image by our sponsor, coloured with promarkers and papers from hobbycraft. The sentiment is from an LOTV stamp set.

The challenge lasts for a month, so you have plenty of time to enter.So, come and join us!

Challenge Post

Hello again,
Im back to share my final 2 cards for today. My first is a stamping bella card, {scroll down for my Saturated canary card}
I love my superhero shows and movies, so i couldn't wait to get Superbella!
I created this card using some first edition papers, which i have used on both of these two cards. I used a sketch and added some stars to finish. My image is coloured with promarkers.


My second card is for 2 challenges. I used a saturated canary image from the subscription range. I coloured her using promarkers and again used first edition papers, this time matted on black. I added a sentiment to finish.

One of my favorite hair colours is black as i find you can make it look really sleek and shiny using your blender pen.

Camera mouse

Today i have a few posts,starting with this one.
I created this card for a couple of challenges. I used a house mouse image, coloured with promarkers.
The papers are from Anne Marie designs Blissful range, these are the teal although they look much more like grey to me.
I kept the card simple, using only a sentiment to embellish.

Altenew creations

Today i have 2 cards to share, both using altenew products. My first is this Be a dreamer card.
I created this card using the Happy Dreams stamp set, which i love. It is filled with inspiring sentiments, stars, feathers, arrows everything. The minute i saw it as a sneak peek, i wanted it.
I created this A6 design for the altenew colour challenge, which this month features ivory, burgundy and mustard.
I made my design to look like a dream catcher, stamping the feathers and giving them each a colour, then stamping the silhouette leaves. I used arrows as the straps and stamped the sentiment in a circle. 


My second card was made using the special moments stamp set, another which i wanted as soon as i saw it.
I used the cherry blossom tree and coloured it then stamped one of the sentiments to create this simple design.
