Kenny K meets Papertake

Me again.......Just a quick post 'cos the Kenny K's Krafty girlz challenge ends very, very soon and I want to enter my card. So the DT team are looking for 'Swirls & Pearls' in this weeks challenge. My swirls come in the form of the pattern on the paper and the embossing on the card and the pearls are really fab little ones from The Hobby house
I am also entering this in this weeks Papertake challenge as I have used their lovely sketch by Dawny P and here's my card.....

Off to link it to the challenges.....

Yay.....some play time

Hiya!
Hope you are all enjoying the weekend.
I have finally managed a little play time, my first since going back to school.......Oh boy it's been a busy first week! I surprised myself by actually completing two cards, although I had already coloured both the images a while ago so that saved me a bit of time. I just couldn't resist this gorgeous LOTV new Christmas image.



Coloured with a mix of Promarkers and Prisma pencils and embellished with punched snowflakes & gems and some fab lacy ribbon which was a RAC from my crafty friend the lovely Pauline, thanks hun!

I am just in time to enter the Just Cute Bear challenge for this week and they want to see dots! So I have printed off some Pink Petticoat spotty papers in Teal to go with my LOTV bear image.
I've used the sketch from this fortnights Sunday Sketch & Stamp challenge and a fab one it is too. And finally my card also fits the Simon Says challenge of 'Holiday Fun' ~ Hop over and check out their super blog hop, the prize is a $100 shopping spree!!!!!!!!!!!! Oh I wish......fingers & toes tightly crossed.
Well that's it from me for now.
Thanks for visiting little ol' me.

Sparkly Dandelion

Well it's back to school...........and the sun is shining!
How typical is that, still it's nearly the weekend, fingers crossed the sun stays with us.
Been having a little play with a stamp I found in my basket when I reached the till at
The Glitter Pot..........funny 'cos I only went in for a couple of sheets of paper!
Anyhow, I love the delicate look of this Hero Art stamp "Dandelion" and ended up stamping about 10 images of it and then adding little dots of Stickles, each image with a different colour. "Waterfall" is my favorite and it teams up perfectly with my new Papermania paper "Ornamental Flourish". A bargain at 45p! Bought it in 3 colours, Aqua (as used on my card) Heather & Verde (aka purple & green)
Here's the results of my play time....


A close up to show the Stickles glitter ....


Challenges:
Sketch & Stash challenge have a fab sketch this fortnight.
Papertake want "Just the one" so I have used just the one colour and one image
Wild Orchid challenge are looking for sparkle ~ Stickles glitter & my ribbon is quite shimmery & sparkly too.
Off to play with the other colours...
Thanks for looking!
