Ok this is my final challenge card for the moment and is for two challenges the first is Just Magnolia theme being Animals and Insects and also Cute Card Thursday which requires some bling added to your card. I have used this Tilda for the first time also the watering can both coloured with my promarkers. The backing papers are from my new Bearlymine CD (I love it) added some flowers and an extra butterfly and of course some gems. I really hope you don't mind the bombardment of cards (please check out my others below) but your comments mean so much to me and these finished products have been made with the confidence that you have given me so thank you all.
Well my regular visitors will know by now that I do love my promarkers and use them quite a lot so I just had to enter the Promarker Challenge I have used one of my Cuddly Buddly images for this and used the following colours, gold, grass, cocoa, shale, sandstone, satin, red, ivory and blush. The backing papers are a mix from my stash and Funky Fairy's the flowers were sent to me by Lora and the sentiment is also Cuddly Buddly. Hope you like it
Well dear friends I am inundating you with challenge cards I hope you don't mind, I have missed so many these last few weeks that I thought I would make up for it and have been sitting quietly crafting for the last few days. This is my entry for the Willow Sketchie challenge I have used one of their images for this one I do love these little oriental people. I have used backing papers from my stash added some flora doodles gems and ribbon hope you like it hugs to all.
Good morning to everyone what another brilliant day wonder what lovely things you have planned. Well if you saw the post below this you will know that I made a boo boo which was not following the sketch. Well I was up until 4.00am this morning and made a couple more cards and this is Willy the Worm I didn't get annoyed with myself because I have such gorgeous backing papers now that they are a joy to work with. Well as you can see this is a totally different colourway than I used before the main backing paper is from my new Bearlymine CD the green is from Raspberry Road Designs. I coloured Willy with promarkers and then cut him out and mounted him onto an oval with some faux stitching I also did this around the two half circles. I added some gems and Flora Doodles and a sentiment hope you like it.

Victoria Case has just launched a new challenge blog and this image of Willy the Worm is a free digital stamp that you can use for the first challenge. I have a few of Victoria's digi stamps and I love them this one is no exception I think he is so cute for a worm. I have used promarkers to colour Willy in I have used Bearlymine backing papers from my new CD plus the sentiment and added a Dahlia flower to finish it off, hope you like it hugs to all.

Hiya hope you are all well I do know a lot of you are producing some wonderful creations. This is my card for this weeks MMSC. I have gone with a blue theme this time and the BP are Elusive Images except for the square which is handmade you can actually see the fibres in it. The image is from Joanna Sheen's Fan rubber stamps and this particular fan has the peacock in the middle which I have added some midnight stickles the fan itself I embossed with the peanut butter mica EP. I added some buttons and ribbon as shown in the sketch. Hope you like it. Hugs to all.
Hi this is the card I have made for this weeks Pollycraft Challenge also themed 'monochrome'. I have chosen the black and white look for this one and used one of my new digi stamps from Pollycraft and is one from their new 'Cherry Kisses' s range. I have used a black A6 card and some of Jak's free polka dot backing papers which I have punched with a Martha Stewart border punch the image is coloured with promarkers. I have add some gems and some silk flowers the oval I cut from my cricut and added faux stitching as with the sentiment. Hugs Lorraine x
Morning all just want to say thank you for your lovely comments they are a wonderful confidence booster and helps to keep me motivated and creating.
This is my entry for two challenges the first is Mojo Monday and the second is Cute Daisy May the theme being a monochrome look. I decided to use a mixture of earth tones for this one and also used Viki who has been coloured with promarkers. The backing papers are a selection from Elusive Images I used some satin ribbon and some copper mirror card I added a few cream flowers to the circle then using a Martha Stewart punch did four flowers down the side in the coordinating colours and added a few gems I hope you like this one. I have been crafting away slowly these last couple of days and finally managed to create four cards which I will hopefully be posting throughout the day. Hugs to you all.

Hi all this is my entry to the C.R.A.F.T. Challenge No 1 the theme being 'New Beginnings'. I decided on a wedding card as one of my nephews is getting married this summer albeit in Cyprus. I have used a Hangler and Stangler image that I received in a RAK and I coloured them with my promarkers. Now the backing paper is actually a Bearlymine insert with I resized in my graphics programme so that I wouldn't lose all the lovely detail but I cut out the white middle and put the image inside so it makes it look like an album or mini scrapbook page....wow that was a little bit of inspiration from me....I mounted it onto gold mirror card and added some flowers a dangly heart (thank you Lora) and stamped a sentiment. Hope you like it.

Good afternoon what gorgeous weather we are having the rabbit is out have a mosey round the garden the washing is drying lovely the frog is sunbathing in the new pond and I am in the process of cooking dinner for one hungry son oh I have fitted a card in as well. Here is my entry for two challenges the first is of course Just Magnolia and the second is Creative Card Crew both require a shaped card. I must have butterflies on the mind because these ingredients came to mind a butterfly shaped card for a butterfly Tilda. I have treated this card to two stamped images of Tilda well can never have enough of Tilda can we. I have cut her out and mounted her on the butterfly inner wing I used promarkers for the colouring, I have added some flowers and gems and the body of the butterfly is actually flower soft. I have loads of it and very rarely use it but I thought 'why not' I have used a mixture of Raspberry Road and Funky Fairies backing papers and the second inner wing I have put some sticky pads under so the wing is lifted, I hope you like it. Hugs to all and enjoy the day.
This is my second posting tonight (or should I say morning) before I started I checked my comments and I found such joy and fun reading your stories of the birds in your gardens they are a wonder and I agree they are clever little devils lol. This card took me ages to do believe it or not I didn't want to rush it and after what happened last week I thought I should take it nice and easy lol. Tell you what though I love it I was so pleased with the finished product and hope you will feel the same. I had a little dig around in some of my boxes for this stamp I had the idea of a card and wanted to use this particular one which I bought from Stamp Addicts awhile ago now. I stamped it directly onto the designer paper first then stamped it another three times then coloured it in. If you look at the top picture you will see that I have actually layered it. The papers are from Raspberry Road Designs and Cuddly Buddly Freebies I have used layering quite a lot on this one which looks really nice in the flesh lol. I have added a few flowers and some gems. Now the challenges that I am entering this one for is Stamp Something the sketch, Flutter By Wednesday which requires two designer papers and finally Divine Diva Inspirational Challenge which is based on an inspirational photo and this is my interpretation of that. I think I have covered everything and wish you a good night and see you all tomorrow. Hugs to you all. Ps My other card for this evening is the one below this, just thought I'd mention it lol.
Hi all hope you have enjoyed the day and it should be another nice one tomorrow and by the look of the sky tonight it will be. I have been steadily working away today and have managed to make two cards this is the first one which I thought would be appropriate for this weeks DareU2DigiStamp the theme being to make a card for a male. Well my mum wanted a card for one of her many great grandson's and this is what I produced. The image is from Dustin Pike and I coloured it with promarkers mounted it onto yellow card then mounted that onto a freebie backing paper but my mind being like it is I can't for the life of me think whose it is at the moment. The banner is from My Craft Studio I added the name and the sentiment myself hope you like it. Hugs to all.
