4 Challenges in 1 :-)

This is one of my new Pink Gem stamps, I treated myself to one or 2,,,, :-)
When I saw that the theme on the Secret Crafter Saturday challenge was new beginings I knew I had to use this or the boy in the pram one ,, :-) I coloured the image with copics and 3D'd it a couple of times and added lace stickles to her bonnet :-)

I followed the fab sketch by Becky on the Sketch and Stash Challenge and used the colour scheme on the Colour Create Challenge which is Lemon, Pink Sorbet and Chocolate ! Yummy :-)

Lorraine just told me about a brand new Challenge starting this week too the C.R.A.F.T Challenge
so I am going to enter this card in that one too :-)

The gingham paper is old and neglected :-) I also used a bit of SU flowery paper and some ribbon and buttons from my messy drawer. The flowers are prima white ones that I stamped with brilliance yellow and added pink glitter brads.

Thanks for looking, I appreciate your comments so please leave me one :-)

Treat Yourself ,,,,,,, :-)

Go on treat yourself to this fab Cookie Bear digi download image from the Doodle Palace :-) You'll have to wait until tomorrow, Tues 26th though ,,, this is a little preview :-)

I coloured him with copics and 3D'd him ;-) The papers are from the Basic Grey cupcake pad, gorgeous papers !! I doodled everything even his dungarees because thats what they're asking for on the Basic Grey Challenge
I added diamond glaze to the cookie jar and added a large brad that I coloured with rangers alcohol inks. The sentiments re from Simon Says Stamp exclusives sets. I also added 2 crystal gem door knobs :-)

Thanks for looking, I appreciate your comments so please leave me one :-)

I didn't mean it !! Sorry :-(

I made this card using the brand new not yet released 'Hound Dog' image from the Doodle Palace :-)The big launch is tomorrow so you don't have to wait long before you can buy him :-) I coloured him with copics and the printer ink smudged a bit, I tried heat setting it but that didn't work, maybe the SU card is a bit too smooth !! Has anyone else had any problems ?? I didn't colour him again tho cos I thought it added to his 'scruffy' look :-))) ( good excuse eh !! )He is saying sorry cos he's been rolling in the mud :-)

I used papers from the DCWV Pets stack, I wish I'd bought 2 of these !! The papers are just perfect for cat and dog cards ! The text is from a Hero Arts mixed alphabet set, the eyelets were in the box with tthe crop-a-dile ( fab machine that !! )
I followed the lovely easy sketch by Emily on the Stamp Something Challenge
I will be using this sketch again, so versatile :-) you should go and see Emily's blog, her work is just gorgeous ! :-0

Thanks for looking, your comments are appreciated so please leave me one :-)
