Flower barrow

Hello today to all my crafty friends.
I just popped on to share another recent card.  A while  back I decided that I use digis far too often and decided to dig out some physical stamps and use them a bit more. I must say I did enjoy inking them up but the down side is they don't always stamp out perfectly do they??
This one is from a freebie set given away by Quick Cards a while back and I admit I never used them before popping them into my box never to be seen again (until now!!)
I needed to make a few cards for my box at work and wanted to make some with more general images as the cute girly ones aren't always so popular with people-this one fitted the bill perfectly!
I coloured the image with Promarkers and used some nitwit papers. I used my trusty cuttlebug to cut the image with a Nellie Snellen circle die and used the same for the sentiment which is another from Netty's Cards. I punched some slits to thread paper through with a punch I bought in Hobbycraft and added a paper flower and a little die cut butterfly. A little purple gem and some purple liquid pearls in the flower centres finished off:

I'd like to enter my card into the following challenges:

I Love Promarkers #309-anything goes

Inspiration Destination #86-anything goes
Crafty Gals #72-may flowers

Lil Patch of Crafty Friends-anything goes

Hello all, this post is to let you know that a new challenge has begun today over at the Lil Patch of Crafty Friends and our theme as always is Anything Goes.
My lovely DT colleagues have been really busy making some gorgeous inspiration cards for you to see and I know they'd love it if you come to visit and see their fab work and also play along with our challenge too.
Our sponsors deserve our thanks too for providing us with some of their gorgeous images to work with and for this challenge we have to thank:

Prize ~ $12 Gift Certificate

Prize ~ 7 Images

For my card I got to work with this lovely image from Bugaboo Stamps called Heel Accessories which you can buy here-I think this is such a fab image which will suit ladies of any age and will work with both CAS and more fussy designs too.

I wanted to keep my card more on the CAS side so all I added was a couple of card candy coloured to match the image which I coloured with Promarkers.  The grey paper is from a Papermania pad and the pink is from my stash. The sentiment was stamped using a freebie set from a magazine.

I'd like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Crafting by Designs -pink and girly
Spellbinding Stamps -girly
Chocolate, coffee and cards #109-just girls

Dance like no one is watching

Hello all, I hope this finds you all well.
Just a really quick post today -I've not been feeling too well the last couple of days so apologies if I've missed commenting on your lovely work, I really hope to be back to normal soon.
This card was made using a freebie image I had in my files but I saved it wrong and can't remember the name of it-if anyone can help I'd be really grateful?? I coloured her in with Promarkers, adding plenty of glitter to her wings and dress. The sentiment was a freebie too from a magazine and the papers are from a set I got at The Works. I punched some little butterflies and added several pink pearls:

I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:

A Bit More Time to Craft-new challenge -Anything Goes

Hello today I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend -a lovely extended one here in the UK.
This post is to let you all know that a new challenge is beginning today at A Bit More Time to Craft where our challenges are always Anything Goes.
We have the fab Ching-Chou Kuik sponsoring us this time so the lucky winner will get to choose two images and you also have the chance of winning some gorgeous paper sets from Lozzy too.
Speaking of which I can also tell you that Lozzy has opened a shop for her papers and you can now buy them here. There really are some beautiful papers and they're such good value for money too so well worth a visit and a browse.
For my card I got this fab image called Dandelion Dream which you can buy here.
I chose to use a pastel colour mix and coloured her with my Promarkers, adding lots of glitter to her wings. The papers are from Lozzy's beautiful Floral set and I die cut some butterflies with a freebie die from Quick Cards magazine and also a little fence die I found on ebay.  The sentiment is from Netty's cards and some pearls finished it off. Once I made it I decided I would give it to my lovely Mum for her birthday next week as she loves spring colours.

I'd like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Melonheadz -pastel colours
