Chill Out!

I meant to post this card a couple of days ago but have only just got around to photographing it as the light has been bad here.  The challenge on CCT this week is Music and Dance so, as I had this image left over from the last card I made, thought I would make use of her and the leftover papers from the card before that.



Supplies: Image is Whimsy coloured with Promarkers, sentiment is The Greeting Farm; Papers are Magnolia; Cardstock Pink Petticoat; Punch SU; Web ribbon I bought from Bunny Zoe's Crafts and sticky gems are Whiff of Joy.  String was from my stash.
Sorry if the photo is a funny shape but I'm experimenting with iPhoto at the moment to see if it's worth me buying a photo software for my iMac!

Enjoy...

Another two-in-one card today which I'm entering for the Simon Says Challenge "Use Domi's Sketch!" and Whimsy Inspirations Challenge "blue + brown".
Used another of my Whimsy stamps from the Kenny K Collection called "Boogie Down" with some SU papers and a sentiment from Penny Black.
Short and sweet today as it's 3.00 pm and I must get on with my housework!

It's Been A Funny Old Day!

Don't know what came over me today - up until last week I haven't participated in challenges for absolutely ages and then I manage to make a card which qualifies for two - not like me at all! Anyway, I'm entering this card in Papertake Weekly Challenge "Buttons, Bows, Blings and Bloom" and also LOTV "favourite stamp" (by the skin of my teeth!) I love all the LOTV stamps but this is my most recent so at the moment it is my favourite!
I used Promarkers to colour the image, Magnolia papers, Pink Petticoat sentiment and Navy card, Nestabilities, string and punch from SU and button and webbing from my stash.

WOYWW

It's the first time I've taken part in WOYWW and as you can see my desk is a bit of a mess. Plenty of images (mainly Whimsy and LOTV)which I've just started to colour. A couple of cases of Promarkers open at the moment (currently working on skin and hair!), however, my desk will start to get really untidy once I start on the other colours as I never seem to put the pens away when I've finished with them, despite my best intentions!

Groovy!

Yes...another stamp from the Kenny K Collection! Absolutely love this one but was a bit worried about colouring it, however, after trawling through YouTube, I had a go and was quite pleased with the end result although room for improvement!
This image is called Bling Baby and I'm just loving those boots! Sentiment is Susana Loves Stamps. Can anyone help with some different layouts please as I seem to have got myself into a bit of a rut using the same one?

Happy, Happy, Happy!

I did mention in my last post that I was loving the Kenny K Collection from Whimsy Stamps so here's another one I'd like to share with you. This cheeky little chap is called Happy Little Gnome (quite appropriately!)
This card was definitely a labour of love - no problem with the colours, image or papers, however, when it came to the layout and embellishments I was struggling - it took me hours in the end to complete this one! Anyway, entering this into the Simon Says Challenge which this week is spots and/or stripes.

First Challenge in a Long While!

I haven't completed a challenge for years now so thought it was about time I had a go. Decided on the Papertake Weekly Challenge as it was the first challenge I ever did when I first discovered blogland! The theme is "new somethings" and I've decided to go with new stash!
I am just loving the Kenny K Collection from Whimsy and have managed to acquire a couple with my Christmas cash. I've used Club Kid and coloured her with Promarkers - I've spent ages trawling YouTube for Promarker tutorials for skin and hair as I was never very adventurous when it came to colouring. However, my fine nibs for my Promarkers haven't arrived yet so I've gone over a bit but just ignore them lol!
The photo isn't wonderful as I've taken it this evening with bad light, however, will keep on practicing as my present to myself this Christmas was a new camera as I long to be able to take a half decent photograph of anything!
