It's All About The Boys

Here is my card for this week's Lili Of The Valley Fairies challenge - All about the boys!
I love the astronaut image from LOTV and was wondering if I should colour his suit in metallic grey or not. I started colouring it in using only Ice Grey shades of Spectrum Noirs and then carried on with the whole image. I think it works!

Buttons N Bows

Here' my take on the Buttons N Bows challenge this week at Lili's Little Fairies. I also used a Passion for Promarkers Bingo Board too. I chose the left column - Ribbon, Die Cut and Button. The die cut the image and the layer for it.

The sentiment came with another Lili of the Valley stamp but suits this one too. 

Also entering this card into the following challenges:
Lady Anne's - Anything Goes     Color Throw Down - Colour Challenge
Simon Says - Anything Goes     Paper Shelter - Anything Goes
Stars and Stamps - Stripes    Creative Creations - B (Bow)

Spring Colours

It's been a while since I have made anything. Mojo really did disappear on me big time. Had a little dabble though thanks to Lili's Little Fairies latest challenge -Spring Colours. Had this stamp and Spellbinders bitty flower die since the New year but yet to use them so thought I'd better give it a go. Originally I really liked this card I made but now I see the big empty space in the left hand corner of the card, I'm not so sure anymore. Maybe it's my lack of mojo making me over critical right now. Maybe I'll have an idea an add something when I think of it... Who knows!!!

Here's a close up of my first Spellbinder bitty flower. Will keep practising I think! Now I just hope it fits into the envelope!!!

A touch of romance

This is my entry for the TOUCH OF ROMANCE challenge with Lili of the Valley this week. I coloured the image in using only the grey pack of spectrum noirs. I have to say, I quite like how it turned out.

I used a Papertrey ink stamp to create the spotted paper so that it tied in with the spotted pattern on the hat.

Lili of the Valley - Bright and Beautiful

Well, what a kerfuffle! Been having major issues with my computer once again. Norton decided it didn't like Google Chrome. So I reverted back to using Internet Explorer. But that decided it didn't want to let me add pics to my blog. Think I have sorted it out now! Fingers crossed. So what have I been waiting to share with you?

Well this card for Lili op the Valley's BRIGHT AND BEAUTIFUL challenge. I have used Pacific Point card and ink for brightness. Coloured the central 'King' to match and then added some extra brightness with some Christmas light stamps from Papertrey Ink. The merry and bright sentiment stamp is also form PTI. Hope you like it
