Christmas Is Coming........

Good morning all & a happy Saturday to you!
This is sadly my last GDT post for Scribbles Designs Challenges
Here's my card!

My Christmas In June card was made using   

Those of you who know me will know I'm a sucker for a snowman!
The cuter the better! Lol

I opted to go with Christmas, since Katrina the other GDT  pointed out,
"It's exactly 6 months until Christmas!" Eeeeek!
I used a bright yellow 6"x6" card base & fairy light papers from my stash.
The image was coloured with Promarkers, Copics & Flexmarkers then
cut with an oval die & matted on to a scalloped oval.
I made some fish tails & added some ribbon with a double bow.
The sentiment tickets were bundles in the corner & a few buttons 
were also added to embellish.

I have to say a great big thanks for inviting me to GDT! 
It sure has been fun playing with these images.
Hope I can do it again sometime!

I'd like to enter this card in some challenges:

Here Comes The Bride

Good morning all!
It's Monday, therefore it's time for me to share my DT card 
for the latest challenge over at Eureka Stamps
This week, the theme is very fitting for the month of June!

I've used the delightfully pretty image, # 55601 Wedding Bells
to create my White on White CAS Wedding card.
The inspiration for my layout came from the sketch over at

I started with an A5 Linen embossed base.
The embossed Script panel was popped up on some foam tape for 
added dimension, next I created a frame using two Spellbinders 
rectangle dies then added a wire word. 
A little bit of shading was added to the image using promarkers, then
it was diecut & then glitter added to the edge, before matting on to the
scalloped circle die cut.
That's about it!
I do hope you like my card & I hope you can play in 
the Challenge this week! Can't wait to see what you create.

One For The Guys

Good Morning all,
The weeks are flying in aren't they!
I just can't believe we are in mid June aleready.

I'm in the middle of trying to sort out my craftroom/spare bedroom
between guests but have taken time out to make this little card.
for the challenge over at Eureka Stamps this week where the theme is

I've used the gorgeous little image
Isn't it just adorable!
My mum & dad live just at the edge of an estate & go walking
in a local country park most days. Deer are a common sight, so I thought 
this would be the perfect image for my Father's Day card to my dad!

I used a 6"x6" Kraft card base & Kraft papers which I lightly distressed with some scissors.
The image was coloured with Promarkers then cut using a Spellbinders die.
I added a computer generated sentiment, some twine & some 
scrabble type wooden letters to embellish!
I hope you like it & I look forward to seeing what you create for the challenge

Things With Wings

Good morning all!
It's Monday, which means a new challenge over at Eureka Samps!
This week, the theme is a favourite, which can be interpreted in so many ways.....

I've made a fairly quick & simple Cristmas card, using the fab little image
I love this little lady! I've used my Sakura Glitter pens to colour up parts of the image,
then added a bit of shading with a promarker.
The DP is Papermania & I've added embossed panels.
 (swiss dots & snow flakes)
Each layer is popped up on foam tape.
The ribbon is from Lidl. I cut the image out with a 
Spellbinders Oval die & inked with a liquid chalk inkpad.
The colour looks a bit off but it's actually much closer to the DP irl.
A few tiny gems finish off the corners.
I hope you can play along this week in our challenge

Twinkle Brr.......

Good Morning all!
It's time for another GDT post for Scribbles Designs
Here's the card I made!

I've used the cute little image #228 Twinkle Brr 
and the sentiment tickets #109 Let It Snow Quote 
I used my Promarkers to colour up the image & Sakura Glaze & Glitter
pens for the little lights. I inked the edges with a liquid chalk ink pad.

The layout for my card is based on the sketch 

May Card Sketch

from Stick it Down

The papers are from my stash.
I used foam pads to pop up one end of each sentiment ticket,
 for a bit of dimension. I also popped the layered snowflakes 
up on foam pads too, then aded a little gem at the centre.
Thanks for looking!

Snow Kisses

As some of you already know, I was lucky enough to be chosen
as a Guest Designer for Scribbles Designs.
They have some great images which you can check out here!
There are lots of Friday Freebies too, which gives you another great reason to visit!

I'm a sucker for snowmen & I had to get started on my Christmas cards, 
so, I made a little White On White Christmas card using -

The card base is 6"x6" Centura Pearl cardstock & I've used this 
for all of the elements. The image was coloured using Promarkers, 
then cut using a spellbinders circle die.
I added four embossed panels,which were popped up on foam pads for dimension.
I placed a memory box die cut, behind the image, & added a
 Marianne Creatables die cut snowflake,
To finish the card off, I threaded some sheer ribbon through the sentiment 
which was die cut with a spellbinders die.
Thanks for stopping by today!
I hope you like my little card! Don't forget to check out the challenge
