Image coloured with my pro markers, the brown papers i found in my stash i think i got them from the pound shop. I did a bit of paper tearing and i quite like the effect, maybe seeing that a bit more i think.Circles on the blue card are CCRS doodle stamp set, sentiment also ccrs.

Just Magnolia get in shape

When i saw that this weeks challenge was to make a shaped card i thought oh god i don't do shapes then i looked at all the design team makes and took inspiration from them and came up with this one. I'm really pleased with it. i made the card blank by drawing around a card wrap i had then again to make a smaller one, you cant really tell on the pic but the dots on the black card are green i used black magic card and sanded it so the green came through.

hope you like it....

2 in one sketch and stash & dotties world

This one is for 2 challenges the sketch and stash challenge fab sketch to follow and i used my neglected digi stamp from charmed i was going to use my girl about town package but i couldn't find them on my lap top i dont know where they have gone, i'm sure they are there somewhere i'll have to sit down later and go through every file to find them. For the dotties world challenge you had to put a charm somewhere on your project. You cant see it very well but it is there and it's a little doggie. i have a little pot full of them and i'm going to start using them so thanks girls for the reminder.

Papertake weekly Dawny's sketch

I needed to make a card for my Mum's birthday on Friday so I thought I'd use this fabby sketch by Dawny and enter it for the papertake weekly challenge. Bit different for me this one. I used a few cuttlebug folders and an ink pad embossed the card and than rubbed an ink pad over the top of the embossing. for the piece where the dots are white i rubbed the ink pad over the folder before putting the card in. The image is elzybells and was coloured with pro makers and sentiment was done on the computer.

just magnolia challenge a sketch

This is the card i made for this weeks just magnolia challenge. I used the colours green and purple so i could also enter it into the do crafts weekly tilda challenge.Tilda is coloured with prismas, the ribbon was white to start off and i used a pro marker to colour it green because out of the yards and yards of ribbon i have i couldn't find any green. I'm not too sure about the flower but i think it need one there.

hope everyone is enjoying the bank holiday weekend.
