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

Yosemite Sam

I love this card for that generic theme. The Howdy Partner sentiment found on the Yosemite Sam decoupage sheet is so versatile. I made this wiper card to really show of the sentiment. I love how it just pops up! I used Soft Suede and Pacific Point cardstock from SU.

A Tropical Christmas

Today's challenge in Bugaboo's week long CHRISTMAS IN JULY celebrations is
TROPICAL With the FREEBIE image!
 I have used this Santa image which is in fact one of the prizes during this celebratory week. There is a free image which we'd like you to use that is available over at Catch The Bug. It's of Santa buried in the sand!!! 

I made this extended twister easel card which I think is just a little bit different to the usual style which I like.

Lili of the Valley - Anything Goes

Here's my ANYTHING GOES entry for this week's Lili of the Valley challenge. I used a So Saffron and Old Olive colour scheme and coloured the green clothing using Spectrum Noirs (my first attempt). Need to use them a bit more to get a feel about them I think but they are so much cheaper than other pens. I glazed the ball to make it shine.

Dressing Riley

I needed to make a thank you card for one of my Cubs' Dad. Last week we had a sponsored event to raise money for new camping equipment and he went around and collected over double our target from local businesses - AMAZING!

So here's the card I made using a Riley & Co image. Their challenge is to dress it up by drawing clothes onto him by altering it. So I drew on clothes and our group necker.

A Little Bit Distressed

No, not me, it's the theme for this week's challenge at Lili Of The Valley's Lili's Little Fairies blog!
Here's my effort. I used Blushing Bride and Crumb Cake as my colour palette. I distressed the paper with my scissors and toned everything down to make it look more distressed by sponging everything I could with Crumb Cake ink.
