Miss Dorothy

There is a new challenge over at Divas By Design today & the theme is Make It Sparkle & is sponsored by Craft Bag. Anyone who knows me, knows how much I love elephants, so I could not resist this stamp from the Magnolia Little Circus Moscow collection called Miss Dorothy. I coloured her with my Prismas & glittered up her head dress in pink & lilac glitter. I also glittered around the edge of the Nestie mount.. The little stars are a stamp from Alys Inky Fingers & I also stamped onto the doily too. The paper is a digital one from Bearly Mine.
The sparkly material was wrapping paper that I bought years ago from a local shop, of course its never been used for presents, just kept in my card making stash!! The especially for you stamp I bought from Sir Stamp A lot. Flowers are from stash & leaves are a die , maker unknown as I borrowed it from a  friend.

Sweet Friend

This is my inspirational post over at Bearly Mine Challenge Blog where I post a card on 21st of each month using Donna's scrummy papers. I have used 2 sets of her papers here. Delicious Delights & Simply Dots

I used a digi image from Clear Dollar Stamps which I dont believe are in existence anymore. I coloured it with Prisma pencils & covered the strawberry in Glossy Accents. Not sure about the white lighter area, in the photo it looks like a splodge lol. Added some organza ribbon, a strawberry charm & flowers from stash. (My friend is going back to Thailand in April so I may get some more flowers yippee). The sentiment also came with the image.

Ribbon from Hobby House & jewels from stash. The sentiment is computer generated.

Thinking of Spring

Stamp & Create with Magnolia have a new challenge & the theme is Thinking of Spring & with the seasonal twist of spring colours too. The usual prize is
I chose to use Tilda with Big Tulip Pot from Little Easter Collection & coloured her with Prisma pencils.I edged the Nestie mount with a Promarker. The papers are 2 12x12 papers I had in my stash with no name on, so no idea where they came from. the butterflies are Magnolia dragonflies with the tail cut off to look like butterflies. I have added a little Frantage Shabby White to the body of the larger butterfly. The grass is a Joy Crafts die & the fence is a Marianne die, both coloured with Prismas. Assortment of flowers from stash, ribbon from Hobby House & the letters from an old QVC kit.
I am still away, so will look for challenges as I can.

With Love Tilda as a Clown

Divas By Design have a new challenge starting & the theme is With Love. It is sponsored by Mei Flower. I have interpreted it slightly differently to the obvious but still kept to the theme. I have used Tilda as a Clown from Once Upon A Time collection & coloured her with Prisma pencils. These papers came from a Making Cards magazine, which were perfect for this image. The With Love was a flag from the same source, which I stuck onto a cocktail stick coloured with a Promarker & wrote on With Love.

 It is now a generic card & can keep in my box to be used as & when needed. The flowers & ribbon are from stash.
This is a scheduled post as I am away, but will look for challenges as & when I can.

Eileen & Potters Bench

Heres a card just because I had some spare time, no DT work, jut made it because I wanted to, how unusual is that these days it seems?
I chose to use 2 digi images, I have had for years by Mo Manning over at Digital Pencil Too, called Eileen & Potters Bench. Both are coloured with Prismas & Eileen is mounted onto foam dots to raise her up from the bench. The yellow paper is from the Bearly Mine Spring Delights set..
The purple die down the side is Memory Box Catalina & the yellow one across the bottom is also Memory Box Spring Border. The sentiment I purchased from Sir Stamp A Lot & it was stamped onto a SU die I think (my friend gave me loads of them). Flowers from stash & seam binding also from stash.
