Good morning again lovelies!
It's Thursday, which means time to share a 
Just Inklined card with you!
Here's this weeks make!

A simple,  fun & funky New Home card!
Using the wonderful Treehouse image!
I can think of loads of other occasions this image could be used for!

I coloured the image with Prisma pencils. I'm still learning how to 
work with them but liking the results!
I've kept this card quite simple as I wanted the focus 
to be on the image. The sentiment was done on the pc.
The papers are from American Crafts.

You can see the inside has been decorated too!
Don't forget to check out Just Inklined. There
are loads of  great new images on offer.

Bear It All

Good moring peeps!
Time for me to share a DT card for Ooh La La Creations!
The theme over on the challenge blog this time, chosen by Michelle is 
Here's what I made.

The image & papers I have used are from the Boys To Men CD Rom
I love the image, it's cute & funny at the same time!
The papers are fab too! Don't you just love that plaid one?

Here's a closer look at the image for you!
This one is a topper which isn't actually what I meant to print out
 but in my usual rush, I hit print at the wrong time!
After I had printed the image out on to decoupage paper, I added
some firmer card to the back, along with some foam tape,
to give a bit of dimension. I used the sketch from 

Deconstructed Sketch 152

for the layout of my card. I love this sketch!
You can see I've changed the order of the mats but the
elements are there! 

A couple of buttons threaded with twine & a sentiment left over
from another project are the only other additions!
You don't have to use Ooh La La Creations images or elements to play in the
 challenge, but we love it when you do! If you haven't tried any of the 
Ooh La La Creations  stuff yet, I can tell you there are a few free samples on the
  website & one of them just happens to feature bears!
I hope you  like my card & I hope you can play in the challenge!
Don't forget to check out the challenge blog, the DT have all created fantastic 
projects to inspire you & we have a brand new teamie on board,
the lovely Avril Ann of Crafting In The Bedroom fame!
