peek a boo

I liked this sketch on the One Stop Craft challenge so thought I would have a go. I am also loving these papers from 1st edition Boho Chic. Photographs don't do them justice. 
I am posting this and then its of to do some housework!!!

I used Bugaboo image, Promarkers, 1st Edition papers, Woodware flower punch, Memory Box leaf.

I am entering this into the following challenges:- 


I bought  the Creative Stamping mag at the weekend, so I have used one of the free stamp that came with it. It is a lovely image that would be suitable for any music lover.

I have kept it clean and simple using Nesties, a little ribbon and charm and of course a little sparkle with mini gemstones.

Just doodling

I had a play late last night. I had seen the challenge on Less is More for a one layer card and doodling. I like a challenge so I thought I would draw my own image and add some doodling. I had fun, I have never drawn and coloured an image for a card before. Sunflowers are so cheerful flowers and perk up the dismal days. 

I coloured this with Promarkers.

This time I have used Memory Box leaf, Papermania embossing folder, Nesties, Nellie Snellen border die, chalks and inks.
