Anyway ... on to the challenge .... this time the lovely Karen has provided us with a sketch to work from

Here's mine

I've used a Penny Black slaptstick stamp which has the greeting with it as well, i've coloured with copics and followed Karen's sketch layout - when Karen said to use Pink/Blue I knew I had to use this paper - love it because it's so vibrant :)

Good Morning All
Well .... as the saying goes .... "It's been a funny old week" .... started off with a major migraine which completely knocked me out for 2 or 3 days, which then left me behind with preparations for this week's class - but I caught up in the end and I'm now ready for the onslaught LOL
So before all my ladies arrive I need to tell you that we have a new challenge over at FAIRY FUN FRIDAY - this time we want you to be INSPIRED BY A SONG - my fellow Princesses have come up with some fabulous designs both cards and scrapbook pages - you really need to head on over a take a look :)
When I saw this challenge I knew exactly which one of Roberta's fab images I was going to use and which song it would represent ... A fab oldie but classic "SAILING by ROD STEWART"

This image is HOISTING SAILS which is one of my faves, i've coloured with promarkers and cut out using a nestie, the sentiment is one of mine and can be found as part of a set of 6 in either DIGI FORMAT or MY NEW CLEAR STAMP RANGE at SENTIMENTS 4 YOU
Thanks for stopping by :)

Morning Blogland
What a fantastic day I had yesterday - I went to the Craft Show at Towerlands in Braintree and has such a great girly day out!! We did workshops with Nancy Watt and Stephanie Weightman off of Create & Craft, I saw loads of "Crafty" people I knew and bought myself some lovely "stash" which I can't wait to play with!!!!
Right ... before I do go and "PLAY" hehe just thought I'd remind you that you still have a week to enter our challenge at TOTALLY TILDA where the theme this time is HOW DOES YOUR GARDEN GROW
Here's my Part 2 :)

I love this Tilda swing and haven't used it in ages so knew I had to for this challenge!!, I've coloured with copics and cut out so I could mount on foam pads, the background is from PINK PETTICOAT - check them out as they have a great range of "paper collections" and I've printed my sentiment straight onto it - the sentiment is one of mine and can be found as part of a set of 6 called In the Garden at SENTIMENTS 4 YOU, the butterflies are a Martha Stewart punch.
I would like to enter :

Enjoy the rest of your weekend and thanks for stopping by :)

Good Morning Blogland
This is a scheduled post ... so hopefully it will work LOL
I'm off to Towerlands in Braintree today for the Stitch and Craft, Craft Fair - must say looking forward to a girly day out and some "must have that" spending LOL
Anyway .... another week, another Saturday, another challenge at
This week we want you to MAKE A CARD WITH A MATCHING TAG ... I had such fun doing this one as I've discovered a new technique I love - still need a lot of practise - but I just love it! Stamping on Kraft Card and colouring with my polycolour pencils - such a different look :)
Here's my card & tag

This is Santa's little helper sitting on her candy cane :) As I said I've coloured with polycolours pencils but instead of using odorless white spirit to blend (because it just stains the kraft card) I used my splender blender pencil to blend and polish.  The sentiment is one of mine and is part of a set of 6 which is available as either a stamp set or digi download ... head on over to SENTIMENTS 4 YOU to check them out :)
Thanks for stopping by
Catch up with you all later :)
