Summer Bright

Good Morning, I am back with a second card to share today.  This should have been posted last week but by the time that I realized that I forgot to publish it, it just made more sense to wait for today and publish it as a midway reminder.
The current challenge over at Stamp and Create with Magnolia is
Summer Bright
Summer themed image with bright colors
What is a Summer themed image?:
Flowers, Butterflies, Sports, Vacation, Sunshine/Outdoors, Father's Day, water/beach, Birthdays. Colors are Bright and Vibrant

For my card I chose to use Tilda Loves Flowers which Lacey currently has available in the store.
She has been coloured in some of my favorite bright colours to match this card base that I had put together some time ago.  More bright summer flowers and a butterfly diecut finish it all off.
You still have one week to join us for the challenge. I do hope that you will play along. I look forward to seeing your cheerful and bright creations.
See you there and Have a Great Day!

Good Morning, I am running a day late but I am here to tell you all about this week's challenge at Charisma Cardz. The theme this week is

Digi Samps Only
As always we have some great prizes

All That Scraps have generously donated 2 Prizes this time! two winners will each receive One Stamp set or 4 single CC Designs stamps of their choice!.


One lucky winner from our second sponsor this week will receive 5 digis of their choice from the fabulous Pink Cat Studio!!
For my card I have used an adorable digi from Saturated Canary. I have coloured her up with Copics and then dug through my stash of papers to find some that matched. As the image is quite large it really takes centre stage but I have accented with a swirl and some matching punched flowers to finish it off.
I hope that you will join us this week. I'm looking forward to seeing what you create.

Ugly Christmas Sweater

Good Morning,today is the start of a new  ABC Christmas Challenge. Our theme this time around is
L for Give us a Laugh or Less is More

If you go with the Give us a laugh you can use a funny image or sentiment...
1st Prize is 2 Digi images from her lovely Shop.Saturated Canary

For my card, I have used one of Krista's wonderful images, they are so much fun to colour. I have paired her with some papers from MME that reminded me of those ugly Christmas sweaters and I have finished it all off with a bow and a sentiment that comes with the image.
I hope that you will join us for the fun, can't wait to see what you create.

K for Kept Safe

Good evening, I hope that you have had a happy Wednesday.  I have a card to share for our final midway inspiration for the ABC Christmas challenge. Beginning with our next challenge there will only be the main challenge post. Just in case you have forgotten, the theme of this challenge is
Kept Safe
with the idea being to use something that you have been keeping tucked away for just that special project.
Our sponsor for this challenge is:
Kenny K with a prize of any 3 digital images from their shop
This week I opted to create a gift bag, you can never have too many come the holidays. The images from Tickled Pink have been merged together to create this darling Victorian couple who have been coloured using traditional holiday colours to celebrate the holiday season.
My Kept Safe item was the lace which I ordered from Wild Orchid Crafts some time ago now. I have been using it sparingly as lace like this has been hard to find locally but it seemed appropriate to use some vintage style lace with this image.
The poinsettia has been cut using the Tim Holtz Tattered Florals die and then accented with glitter and a fuzzy center. The little banners could be considered another Kept Safe item, as they were assembled about 6 months ago and have been sitting on the corner of my desk just waiting for a project that suited them.
