Penny's Paper Crafty Challenge is on once again.  this weeks sponsor is 

Paper Nest Dolls

and the image I am using is

Ellie With Stocking

She is a gorgeous girl this one. You can change the colour of her hair to match any grandchild or recipient of the card.  
I used mustard seed oxide ink on the card cover and candied apple on the strip behind the image.  I then spritzed some water on these in droplets and removed with paper towel.  I stamped a bauble on the yellow panel to add to the Christmas theme.  
I stamped "The Ton" sentiment out in 2 different colours to match the rest of the theme.  All this mounted on SU Garden Green cardstock and little strips of the same colour behind the girl to just break up the background a little.  
A big thanks to Paper Nest Dolls for allowing us to play with their images this challenge.  
Happy crafting!

APTTC September


It is A Perfect Time to Craft blog challenge again.  This month we have a new sponsor 
She has some awesome images to choose from.  I got to play with 

I really mixed it up.  I used a MFT stencil, Lotus flowers are from a Waffle Flower set (that is many moons old) Mowed Lawn and Twisted Citron Oxide inks as well as Copic markers to colour Jasmine in.  
It really was an easy project to do.  It just fell together. And I really wanted the digital image to be the stand out feature as that is who we are promoting this month.  
Big thank you to Beat Paper for allowing us to us her images.  I have bought several of them in the past and I have to say there will be plenty more in my cart very soon. 
Happy crafting!

Stampers Delight are our sponsor this week over at Penny's
My image is the just the cutest! 

                                                                   Anime Believe In Yourself

I had fun playing with this one.  Not only using an anime type image but the colour combo's on this one.  I love them!!  Granny Apple Green and Rich Razzleberry, both from Stampin'Up.  
I even done an ombre hair style for this little lady.  My daughter is jealous.  She wants her hair so badly...lol.  
Don't forget to check out all the other DT members blogs for their awesome projects, and pop on over to Stampers Delight for all your digital images.

Sketch Saturday time again.  This weeks sketch is

And this week I finally played with my favourite set (right now) from

Motel Friends is the set I am talking about.  Great card for the LGBTQIA+ community as this character is part of it.  
I kept the colour scheme very simple as he only dresses in black and white 99% of the time. 
I add a little bling with the glimmer strip under the diagonal panel and then punched some of that as well for the dots.  
The flower was replaced with the wine bottle with the sentiment.  
Don't forget to play along with us and check out the other DT projects while there.  
Happy crafting!

StarJamLines are our sponsor this month.  If you have not checked out their etsy page, please do.  They have some very cute designs. 

The image I was lucky enough to work with is

Gnome in a Watering Can 2

Isn't he cute?  I think so.  What would be even better is to draw in your own background.  I can see him in front of a potting bench or something.  Our only requirement was to not use patterned paper when doing our project.  '
Play along for your chance to win a great prize.  Thank you for popping by.
Happy crafting.



Hello!  I hope you are all safe wherever you are in the world.  I am still hiding in my craftroom and and having fun. 
Today I am sharing with you a project I have done for my Guest DT role over at 
Dig Doodles Designs.
This months theme is Summer.  Totally different to what us Aussies are having right now.  Although, the weather has been relatively mild for us of late. 
I got the chance to play with

I decided upon doing a title page for my journal for this years annual beach holiday.  Doesn't she look at home right there!  
I done something a little different when colouring this one in.  I used my Prismacolor pencils instead of Copics.  AND, I did it on Kraft cardstock.  It come up a real treat. I love how her hair turned out too.  The DDS girl images have the most gorgeous hair.  I love the bouncy and full bodied curls on each of them.  I am honestly very jealous!  Lol.  
Anyway thank you for popping in to see my project.  I will have to continue using the pencils more I think.  They are a great medium to use.  
Happy crafting!

Pattie's Creations is one of our sponsors this time around.  And the image I was lucky enough to play with was

Magnolia Branch

Purple seems to be my go to colour of late.  And it looks great with this flower.  A very simple image, but looks great with any sentiment.  The sentiment I used was a Stampin Up one.  Add a bit of an outline in grey allows the image to pop.  Add a few gems tor glitz and voila! 
If you would like to play along with our challenge, you have a chance to win a prize!  
And don't forget to check out the rest of the DT projects.  They have worked very hard and show even more ideas with our sponsored images. 
Happy crafting!

#128 Use Flowers


Welcome back to another great month of inspiration with CCC Digi Creations challenge blog.
This month our theme is Use Flowers. 

I thought I would go one better.  I went flowers and frogs.  Are they not the cutest?  And here is that purple making another appearance.  But it really does suit the colour scheme so well.  The meditating frog is not actually in the flower, so I added him there.  The flowers at the bottom is one single flower stamp, then masked and the other 2 then stamped on each side.  You can make your own border with just one image easily.  
Don't forget to check out all the gorgeous projects from our DT.  They do such a great job. And don't forget to play along for your chance to win. 
Happy crafting.
