Anything Goes @ Aud Sentiments

Hi guys,

We have a new challenge starting over at the Aud Sentiments challenge blog - and it is an Anything Goes theme, so nice and easy for you. Please do remember to include a sentiment somewhere on your creation, and show a photo of this sentiment also.
Our lovely sponsor for this challenge is Fred, She Said and I have used Nuthatch for my card:

I coloured the image with Promarkers and then die-cut into a circle. I then looped ribbon and layered this on top of the ribbon loops. Finally I added a peel-off sentiment.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Digi Doodle Studio #20 Birds/Beasts
TheMaleRoom #120 Use embellishments (ribbon in this case)
intaas #67 Things with wings
DaringCardmakers #118 Special Thoughts
PFP #511 Use three of something (3 lengths of ribbon and 3 words)

Thanks for looking,

Add a flower @ I Love Promarkers

Hi guys,

We have a new challenge starting today at I Love Promarkers - with an optional theme of add a flower. Our sponsor is Knitty Kitty and I have used Kleokatra #47 for my card.

I coloured the image with Promarkers and then cut it on my paper cutter. I drew around the edge with Promarker fineliner. I then layered onto patterned paper and drew around the outside of the image area, and the outer edges of the paper. Finally I added some floral washi tape around the edges and a paper flower coloured in the same promarkers as the cats headdress, and a white pearl.

Promarkers used - Orange, Magenta, Canary, Ruby, Green, Lavender, Cool Grey 1, Tropical Orchid and Pink Carnation.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

TIOT - hot, hot, hot

a bit of bling

Hi guys,

I have my recent beaded jewellery items to share with you today.

 I made this broach first in the pretty pinks and purples,

...and then made the necklace to match. I also made some earrings but I am not sure where they have ended up!

I would like to enter these for the following challenges:

Critters twice over

Hi guys,

I have a twofer challenge entry to share with you today, with their theme of critters. The stamp and die-cuts are used for both cards to give very different results.

 For the little card I kept the base plain and stamped the bee to one side of the die-cut sentiment (cut on wood grain paper). I then added some flower and bee peel-offs to the opposite corner for balance.

The second card I used a heavily patterned base - stamped the bee coming out from the flower and then used the words from the die-cut separately to make a different sentiment, this time cut on white wood grain.

These would both be suitable for INTAAS #67 Things with wings challenge and CCEE1937 Honey Month.

 I would like to enter this smaller card into the following challenges:
TheLibraryChallenge #41 Readers choice - with this book
Image result for bee book covers
Alphabet challenge - M for Masculine


And this brightly coloured card into these ones:
SimonSaysMonday - Stamp It

Instead of showing you some of my pets (especially my spiders lol) I thought I would let you see this lovely pop of colour. The poor fly had to wait a while for the bee to finish before he could get some juicy nectar.
Thanks so much for buzzing by :)

Use acetate at MAWTT

Hi guys,

Our new challenge at MAWTT is to use Acetate, chosen by Mrs Duck. We have a wide range of ideas from the DT, and here is mine:

I am continuing doing my wedding scrapbook and I started by using glitter pastes through a butterfly and flowers stencil. I then ripped some white paper and painted it with Cosmic Shimmer paint before mounting the photo on top. I then fussy cut some acetate dragonflies. I tried to paint the wings of the larger one with the cosmic shimmer paint - but as you can see it didn't work quite as well as I had hoped - it looks like somebody has splattered the dragonfly over the page instead.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
craftycalender - lots of layers
SimplyLessIsMore #403 metallics
MTTC #405 Anything But a card

Here are my rather large caterpillars:

Autumn @ Creative Moments

Hi guys,

Our new challenge started over at Creative Moments today, and I want to share my Autumnal creation with you, using some digital products from Decosse.

I layered the images together (all from the sponsor) and changed their colours before printing out. I printed onto a matt pearlised cardstock in an autumnal green. To finish I added a splash of autumnal orange in the form of a leaf and a paper flower with ladybird.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Craftycatz #473 Anything Goes
TheMaleRoom #119 Autumn
 AYLI - favourite way to add text (I like to add any phrase as a main focal point)

Waffle says that she is chillaxing as it is the weekend! She hopes you are all enjoying yours :)
