It is that time again!

is a sponsor this time around. 
And the image I got to use was 

I love this image so much.  So cute.  I kept the card fairly simple  And, yes, I turned it into a baby card  Could not help myself.  I did make a baby blue version too but I liked this colour for today's share.  
The vine on  either side is an old Heartfelt Creations set I had and the sentiment is a Taylored Expressions set.

Wrolin Snowboarding Gnome

I cannot believe it is that time again, for me to have some 
This month I chose to make a Christmas card from the image I chose.  
could really be used for many themes but I am trying to get a head start on my Christmas cards and we all know someone who loves a gnome (right?).  

I was originally thinking of going with 3 different sized polaroid framed pictures but it kind of had too much white on the card, so I just cute the pictures out and mounted them with some navy cardstock.  The 3 varieties in size was enough to add some interest to the project.  
The sentiment's are from MFT and Altenew.  The bauble is from an old MFT set as well and the silver hollies are from a SU set.  
I love this colour combo choice as well.  It is not all red in your face this Christmas.  Blues, aqua's and Purples are a great alternative.  
Thank you so much for popping in and having a look.  
I wish you many hours of happy crafting!

CCC DIgi Creations is back with another great challenge

We have no sponsor this month, but we do have a theme. 
Food and/or Drink.  
So I went food, cake in fact!

This set is an older Stampin'Up one.  You may not be able to tell but I did layer the flower bunch on to of the cake.  The dies for this wet were for sale seperately in a Sale a bration promotion (I think).  
I heat embossed the one of the sentiments from this set onto black card and cut around itl  This helped it to pop.  
The background I just masked off a centre positioned panel and used 2 different oxide inks blended together in the centre.  Then I spritzed some water on it and used paper towel to dab it off to leave a splatter pattern.

is back with another great challenge for us. 

And one of our sponsors this month is

and the image I used is

I love the fact that this set comes with its own sentiments.  There are 2 so I made the first one in a larger size, to make it stand out more and to add interest.  
The chocolates I coloured them then added white pen over the top over the original design patterns to make the stand out also.  
The challenge is open until the end of the month, so play along 
for your chance to win.

Time again and it is filled with inspiration.

One of our sponsors this week is 

Sheepski Designs

and the image I am using today is

For You

I reckon most kids would love to receive this colourful elephant card.  Such a cute image.  
I resisted using him/her to make a baby card  Would be so easy to do.  This would be great for a toddler or  those that just love elephants.  
The coloured cardstock is Stampin'  Up.  The little frangipani flowers are from an old My Favorite Things stamp set and the leaves are a mix of Elizabeth Craft and MFT.  
I did use matching ink on the leaves to give them some shading and the "Birthday" also has darker tones from matching ink also.  

Thank you for popping by.  Don't forget to play along with us over at the challenge blog for your chance to win a prize

Back again with another great group of inspiration with 

One of our sponsors this fortnight is

and the image I am creating with is

This image was just to precious to put on the front of a card (for me) so I decided it was to be the cover for May in my diary.  
The colour combo matches the diary also, so that took the guess work out of what colours to actually use.....hehe. 
Once coloured I cut around the border and mounted it on some SU Very Vanilla cardstock then some Misty Moonlight cardstock and placed it central to the page.  
I did add some gems to just add that bit of bling it was missing.  
It fitted perfectly in there.  I have been trying to use my diary a lot more this year since, well, we all can do things now.  
Don't forget to play along with us.  We love to see all your projects. 
Happy crafting!

Back with another great challenge with 

Here is Sketch #698

Now when I was coming up with ideas for this sketch, I had it in my mind that it was horizontal not portrait.  But that is ok!  You can do whatever you want with the sketch.  Rotate, flip, omit or add.  

You will notice I kept the horizontal through the middle.  But I did omit the 2 rectangular pieces.  I was going to add some light sabers there but what you see here filled the card nicely.  
I white embossed the sentiments which are from The Ink Road set "Droid Please".  The paper is 6"x 6"paper pack

The droids are from the Kindred Stamps set 
The gold droid is stamped directly onto gold metallic foil card with Staz On.  Using a water based ink would never dry properly and would smudge constantly.  
The little blue one is stamped onto white card and coloured with my Copic markers  Blue and greys. 
And to add to the illusion of the separated middle piece I just used my white gelly roll pen and my metal ruler.  Fits in nicely with the space background.  
Thank you for popping by and checking our my project.  
Happy crafting!
