Make a wish Foundation

Over at Pink Cat Studio they have a new set of Digital stamp downloads to raise money for Make a wish Foundation, in honour of Ethan Weiman. Go see for yourself.

Anyway, I made this card with the Ethan download. I coloured him with my Copics. But - yes - I am still very much a beginner. Although I have to say, greens and browns seem to be my strong colour. The papers are Basic Grey - Archaic.

Just Magnolia

Just Magnolia are now having a monthly challenge. This month they are asking you to alter something. I decided I would alter a can of sweetcorn. Obviously I ate the sweetcorn first. I decided to make a pen pot. I had actually kept the can to do just that, but didn't know where to start. But this challenge got me started. And I was quite pleased with the end result.

Winter Wonderland wk4

Over at Winter Wonderland they are wanting to see a blue Christmas. I think I can say I have gone blue. The papers are Pink Petticoat and the image is Miss Anya - Snow - from The Greeting Farm. I don't know if I will be able to hide this from my Cousin. But hey, maybe she'll have forgotten come Christmas. But hey, that's another one down. Yay!!

I have again used papers by Pink Petticoat. But hey, I do try and vary them a wee bit. The sheep I won on challenge #50. Thanks guys.

Friday Sketches #57

This is the first time I have tried the Friday Sketches challenge. But I got my Diane Duda stamps from Funkykits and just had to play. I coloured a few and then thought I would try a sketch challenge. So here I am. Well need I say anymore about the image. The papers are Basic Grey - Sugared. The thanks is a stamp I have had an age, so don't know who it's by.

Cute Card Thursday challenge 65

Over at Cute Card Thursday the theme is Tag, you're it. I was going to do a tag, but got carried away and ended up with a card. The papers are Funky Hand and the image is from Motivet in Canada. The text and the butterfly is Whiff of Joy. I thought the middle looked a bit plain, so in flew the butterfly. I seem to have a problem with big spaces.

The Sugar Bowl #13

Lilians sketch over at The Sugar Bowl was a good one for me. You had to use the colour kraft - now that was the hard part. How I hear you ask. Well I knew I had some kraft paper somewhere. In the end I ended up cutting an A6 card to do the matting. I sanded it lightly then added some dark brown ink. I have used my Sugar Nellie Gorjuss girl here. The papers are a Pink Petticoat download. The ribbon slider I got from Wild Orchid crafts. I thought I had got over my thing for 3 gems in the corner. But I see they are creeping back in again. Ahh well - I think they just finish it off.

Lil babies

Another quick post of the babies. I want a piccie of the 3 together, but I think that is gonna be just a wee bit difficult. But I will keep trying. I saw wee Bella and Bruiser sat together and thought that would be a cool picture. Only Bruiser wasn't letting go of the plastic. So I took the photo and then confiscated it. Nice try Bruiser.
