Papers are once again from Extreme Designer Vol 2. Flowers are an assortment from Petaloo and Nicky and Donna, thank you ladies. Some buttons and lace from my little Indian shop.
which I have coloured with copics and added fairy dust. (Whoever said that crafters dont make mistakes they have happy accidents LIED, I coloured my first pixie and have to say I was really pleased at how her dress turned out, I thought to myself that i'm starting to really get the hang of this shading lark. Anyways there I am happily guillotining my designer papers, when I realised that the pixie had got stuck to the back of one and I had cut her in half!!!!!!!!! What a plum!

Ok here he is, my favourite dragon that Alan drew, Gramps.
I just love his face and that cute goatee. I am entering him into this week DU2DS, which has a really nice sketch by Kim .
I coloured Gramps with my Copics. The papers are the Fathers Day collection downloaded from Summer Driggs.
This is such a lovely set of papers I added some extras on the inside. The Bottle top is also in the
collection and I added the text to it. I cut the digi paperclip off and added a real one, for a bit of extra dimension.

The card itself is probably not the best designed card to put a digital dragon on, but i wanted to do something quick before I went to bed. Hopefully I will use her and the rest of the family in better ways over the coming weeks. Well I better had anyway, otherwise I will be in trouble as my Baby Boy drew these for me after seeing some of my digi downloads. Just wait till you see nan and gramps they are to die for!
I'm goin to enter this in the CDM challenge, which is animals this week - do you think dragons count, although im not sure if you can use other images or not. Oh well im sure they will tell me if I cant!
Hope you all have a great night

If all goes well I will be able to show you the layout by the end of the day.
fingers crossed x
Stampin For The Weekend's challenge this week is really unusual, you can take your pick from three different song titles to base your card on. I chose a Whiter Shade of Pale as I wanted to make a new baby card for my niece, and took the title as meaning muted colours.
I downloaded these papers from Raspberry Road, they are called Shabby Rose and I love the whole set, so have continued them on the inside.
The image is one of the New Whiff of Joy stamps Willow and Baby, this set of stamps is soo yummy I know I am gonna be making lots of baby and wedding cards. Lol.
The roses are from Donna and the lace I picked up at Ally Pally.
I was going to use this card for another challenge as well, but was having a bit of a moment when I put it together and missed out quite a big element. Dah.

I put off doing this card as I was hoping that the WOJ stamps woud arrive today and thought this sketch would be perfect for the willow and baby stamp and the tag would make a lovely gift voucher holder for my niece who gave birth the day before yesterday to a gorgeous little girl, but sadly they did not come as the postmen were on strike, so inconvenient they could have waited till after the stamps arrived. lol.
Anyway I thought if I put it off any longer it would be too late.
The image is a Sarah Kay that was stamped for me by Donna, thanks hun I love these stamps but they may have to stay on the wish list for a bit longer. I coloured her in copics.
The papers are from Papermania. Ribbon is Anita's and charm and pretty little flower braid is from my little Indian shop. Hopefuly if you enlarge the photo you will be able to see how cute it really is. I have done some faux stitching using a sakura pen. Fowers are a mixture of Petaloo and from Nikki (have you checked out her shop she has MEMENTO INK PADS!).
Anyways hope you all have a great weekend, I'm working tomorrow boohoo but hopefully i will have an almost finished Robin Picci for you on Sunday.

Okay I have to start of apologising for the knaff photos, didnt realise how bad they were till I started to upload them, the good news is that the streaks are from the sun coming out to play and the card looks loads better IRL.
I made this card which I think kinda works for 3 different challenges.
The challenge this week for Stampin for the weekend is to use a digi image - well I have used lots. Fraid I must be sufferin from a bit of amnesia or probably just old age, cos I cant for the life of me remeber where I got these digi images from. I know the girls, the shop and the sentiment on the front came from the same place!!!!!! The shoe is from Sandra Dark. The sentiment on the inside is a stamp that I picked up at Ally Pally, which I thinks says everything that needs to be said! I cut away the shop window and used a piece of acetate for glass I raised the shop on foam and added shoes and a backround. I then added an extra canopy to give shape. The girls are coloured in Copics. The papers are also digi and are from Retro Diva Designs.
The challenge for Papertake Weekly is Shoes - so this definetely fits the bill and for Cute Card Thursday the challenge is to use a quote.
Off to do the dreaded housework now, but hopefully if I get it done quick enough I will be back later to show you some more of my picci.

So have used the colours closest to Y23 RV11 and BV04 had for the copic challenge.
And followed the sketch for the Stamp With Fun Challenge.
The stamps are from Charmed Delectable, I masked the girl to enable her to sit on the chair.
The flowers I made with wire, utee and my melting pot.
The ribbon and button I found in a little Indian shop in our local market, which is full of bits and bobs.
I have just realised that this also qualifies for the Creative Inspirations Challenge this week.

And what better way to take a break than enter a challenge. Another new technique for me from The Next Level, ribbon Borders. Have to say though although I like the finished effect I did kinda get a tad het up whilst trying to do it. On my first attempt I cut the slots for the ribbon too close to the edge and after struggling to get all the ends in I broke the last corner. duh! You know what they say about old dogs and new tricks! I didn't learn and did the same thing again.
But the good news was that I changed my mind at this time and changed my backing paper to thicker card which I sprayed with both Olive Vine Glimmer Mist and Aqua Lagoon Cosmic Shimmer Mist. The gorgeous image is one from Donna, which I coloued with Copics as is the yellow ribbon. Flowers and leaf are from stash. All in all I was quite pleased how this turned out.

I've managed to resist today and not touched a stamp. Done loads for my picci though.
