A Crafty sentiment cutie

Howdy there folks - its a new challenge over at Through the Purple Haze Where has the time gone to in between?  Heck it'll soon be the C word time.... though that's ages away surely?....

So I got this little cutie from Crafty Sentiments - isn't she lovely?  She was coloured with Copics (what else lol) and out came a new die or two and new papers!  Well paper in the singular actually.  One of the new Lili of the Valley Nitwit pads.  Love the blue and kraft.

I die cut a Whimsy snowflake and a LOTV sentiment and she was done!

Our nice easy theme this week is 'For the Girls' -  you're all aware I only do easy.

Our lovely sponsor this week is Crafty Sentiments and the winner will get 3 free digis of their choice, it would be hard to choose 3... I want loads!

Popover to the blog and check out my teamies makes - they're fabulous!

Anything goes...

Hi there peeps, I've just made a very interesting discovery whilst building my ark... Yes its raining that heavy!  Oh and yesterday we had thunder and lightening!  I mean I thought that happened when it had been hot and sunny? It plainly has not been hot and sunny... So anyway I was creosoting the hull of my ark when I noticed something weird about my fingers... webbed!!!  And me toes too.... yes that's how much it's raining.

So to take my mind off it (a bit anyway) its a new challenge over at Through the Purple Haze the theme this week is 'anything goes' with a Halloween option.  The sponsor is Digital Delights one lucky winner gets themselves such digi goodness.

Now I decided to go Halloween... only because ages ago I bought myself a Martha Stewart bat punch... which I've used once.  Now I've used it 4 times!

I used some fabulously spooky MME papers called 'Blackbird' some of them do have black birds on... just not the ones I used.  I hand wrote the sentiment - my writing is awful!

Please go check out my teamies makes - they're spook-tacular!

I've entered this into the following challenges;

Catered crop - orange is the new black

Challenges 4 Everybody - Anything goes

Eclectic Ellapu - Halloween

Second today - get me!

Well its a new challenge over at Through the Purple Haze Challenges  Its a special one this week too - there are two challenges!  One is sponsored by Indigo Blu and to enter that part of the challenge to win some Indigo Blu rubber you must use Indiglo Blu products on your creation.  The second one is a mystery package (the last winner was really really pleased with it)  The theme for both is 'Anything goes'

So here's my creation.  I used this beautiful poppy stamp.

As always coloured with my trusty Copics, though I did hit a bit of a dilemma... My favourite pale red has run out!  Reinker ordered!

So the paper used is some Basic Grey 'Boxer'.  The background lattice is a Spellbinder - love it but its a bit of a pain to stick!  The butterfly and tiny dragon flies have been covered with Frantage white embossing powder.

I've entered this in the following challenges;

Penny Black and more - Anything goes

Pile it on Challenge - favourite colour as main colour

Sentimental sundays - include a sentiment

Inky Impressions

Well first let me apologise to the rest of the Inkettes....  Yes that's right the rest!  Because now I'm an Inkette nyself - fab huh?

I thought this was scheduled... but obvs it wasn't...

So better late than never eh?

The theme over at Inky Impressions Challenges is 'blue as the main colour' - a nice easy theme huh?  And those of you who know me thats a theme close to my heart!

So I used this lovely stamp called Deputy Christopher  Isn't he adorable?

So I had a rummage through my meagre stash of papers....I thought these fitted perfectly!  I couldn't use any flowers on a card with a cowboy... so I dug out my favouritist Martha Stewart border punch and a star die as trim.  I thought Kraft card went perfectly.  After I laid it out I thought it looked a bit bare so another dive into the embellishment box and out came the string and a button!

He's been entered into the following challenges;

Avenue 613 - Anything goes
Challenges 4 everybody - Anything goes
