Wings again

 Well it is approaching summer so things with wings are about in force now in preparation. So I made this card.

I took two different patterned papers from my stash to make a diagonal base card. I used some toppers that I cut out manually that were free with a magazine.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Still flying high

 Yup our challenge is still running over at Creative Moments with an optional theme of wings and things.

I coloured Blinky the bee-keeper gnome from our sponsor Patties Creations, using watercolour pencils. I then fussy cut him and attached him to a base card that I had covered with a butterfly patterned paper that I printed from my computer. Finally I added the sticker sentiment from Papermania onto a yellow backing paper and then onto the base card.

I would like t enter this card into the following challenges;

Black and White

 ...and maybe a little grey too :)

We have a new challenge over at I Love Promarkers, with an optional theme of, yes you guessed it, black and white.

I coloured the image with a range of greys and then fussy cut. I made a tri-corn card using paw-print patterned card and added a geometric black and white, patterned paper for the back triangle panels and the rosette for the image. The rosette is only added to the one side so that the card can still fold flat for posting.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

CountryView - Things with Wings
SimonSaysWeds - Things with wings
Polkadoodle wk15 Interactive cards (I'm not really sure this counts as interactive, but people do like to pick it up to try and work out how it works lol)

Mummy duck and babies

 OK this card is definitely for a child!! I really dislike it, although I do like my water-colouring of the image.

This is for our new challenge over at Creative Moments, where the optional theme is Wings and Things.
I have used mama duck and babies from our sponsor Patties Creations.

I coloured the ducks using my watercolour pencils and I am quite pleased with the way they turned out. (I know I have coloured mum in dads colours lol, but they are easier to do with limited colour choices). I then fussy cut the top of this and added to a navy base card. I added the happy birthday sentiment and then some green adhesive domes. Then it looked a little bare in the opposite corner so I added the moon and stars.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
SimonSaysWed - Happy Birthday
craftycatz #632 Add some blue
Alphabetchallenge - A for Adorable
Countryview - Things with wings

Thanks for looking, and please pop along to the blog and give the rest of the DT some love too!

Simply doublet in trio

 Hi guys,

It certainly feels like spring now - the sun is getting warmer and the first bees and ladybirds are out and about!

I made a card with a bit of a spring theme.

I used a basic KRAFT basecard. Then I layered a panel of patterned paper onto this. I used three toppers from the same patterned paper set (free with a magazine) and layered them across a piece of white card cut to size. I then wrapped the card with magenta thread before adhering to the patterned paper already on the card.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
ThePaperPlayers #634 The animals come in two by two (two birds in the central topper).
Allsorts #722/723 In the Spring garden
TIOT - hello spring
ATCAS #234 Spring
Sundaystamps #306 sketch
CountryView - Things with wings

Thanks for looking,

Girl n blue

 Good evening all,

We have a new challenge at I Love Promarkers today with an optional theme of girly card.

I have used Butterfly hair from our sponsor SheepSkiDesigns.

I did colour the image using my promarkers, trying to blend two different blues to create the butterfly wings, and adding a third blue for the dress.

I cut squares of patterned paper for the background, on KRAFT cardstock. I then fussy cut my image and added some enamel dots as borders.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Countryview - Things with wings
TIOT - hello Spring (butterflies are a sure sign of Spring)
PFP #684 Animals
Allsorts #722/723 In the Spring garden

Thanks so much for looking and we hope you can join in with our challenge!
