Truly Scrumptious guest challenge card

This is the truly scrumptious challenge, a fabulous card layout by Heather with an added challenge of beading. I enjoyed making this card very much.

I used this gorjuss girl image kindly given to me by Vee a while ago, she is so sweet and lovely to colour.

I used Gorjuss Girl image, Field of sky stamp, coloured with Copic pens, K & Co papers, Craftwork Cards paper blox, Woodware and X-Cut flower punches, Mc Gill leaf punch, Liquid Pearls, Anitas ribbon, Whispas port wine ink pad and wire and beading from my stash.

Take a look at the fabulous DT cards and join in the fun.

Thank You

This may be my last post before going on holiday. We had new central heating installed last week and are still getting the house back in order plus I am trying to pack, so it is pretty busy here. Our first week is at my in-laws caravan then it is across to Austria for a week. We are hoping to walk in the mountain paths which are beautiful. I haven't been keeping to well at times with ME so I am keeping my fingers crossed that I will be fit enough to do all I intend to.
This card is suited to Friday Sketchers sketch, Copic colour challenge, Cute Card Thursday thank you miss and Stampwith Fun punched shapes

I used Pebbles inc paper, Sugar Nellie picking apples, Woodware border punch, Dovecraft brads, Cuttlebug dots embossing folder and Copic pens YG03, G21, B00, B32, RV02, E00, E50, E31, YR31, R35 and W1

First Trifold Card

I made this card a couple of weeks ago for Vee's birthday but obviously couldn't post it. This is my first attempt at a trifold card and I was pleasantly pleased with the results.

I made this matching candle and box.
I used a Tilda image, Rayher ivory miniflowers paper, Woodware & X-Cut flower punches, McGill leaf punch, Copic pens, Nesties and All Night Media chalks.

Truly Scrumptious

Its time for the Truly Scrumptious challenge. This challenge is the sketch below and using black, white and only one colour although you can use different colours for hair and skin.

This is my interpretation of the challenge as the Guest Designer

I used an old stamp in my stash from Hobby Art called Cuddles. He is cute and versitile. My papers are American Crafts used with Nestie circles and scallopes, Cuttlebug embossing folder, Copics, X-cut star corner punch, Anitas ribbon and PM gem.

I hope you can join in too, take a look at the DT cards, they are an inspiration.

Let it Snow

Another quick post tonight as I don't know when I shall next get a chance to make another card. This is for the Penny Black challenge of red, white and blue. I used the Mojo Monday sketch. I had thought about the Winter wonderland challenge but I would understand if it was not considered as the theme is Christmas past and my card does not really reflect that.
I used PB image and sentiment, Copic pens, Nestie ovals and circles, PM and Trimcraft papers and All Night Media chalks.

Just for you

A quick couple of posts tonight. I am in the middle of getting new central heating installed and am in a bit of a guddle.

This card is for 3 challenges, 1. Friday sketchers a lovely sketch, 2. Copic challenge and 3. cute card Thursday stitch in time.

I used PB image and PM sentiments stamps, Nesties, Copics YR23, YG03, W1, YR61, E31, E00 and G21, American Crafts paper. Cuttlebug embossing folder and some ribbon and stitching.
