Good morning, this week's challenge at Fab'n'Funky is hosted by our lovely Pat K , she's chosen one of my favourite themes 'monochrome' :) We are sponsored this week by DigiStamps4Joy, and I chose to use an image I've had for ages and never used...unfortunately I can't find it in the shop, so maybe it's no longer available (can't imagine why, it's beautiful)...teach me to look first next time! 
Anyway, image is coloured with copics, I used random papers from stash, a big and beautiful bow recycled from some gift wrapping, a very old prima flower, a doily, scrap of lace and a few pearls. The sentiment die cut is sizzix Tim Holtz. 
Thanks for taking the time to visit today, hopefully you will find the time to play along,

Just for fun....

Good morning, had a little time to play over the weekend and indulged in a bit of colouring therapy! This little cutie, Twinkles Tulips, was a freebie (I think!) from Polkadoodles a while ago, I enjoyed colouring her with my copics. I used some scraps of DP from my ever-growing -stash, and a sketch from Cheerful Sketches.

Thanks for stopping by, hope you have a good day.

Oldie But a Goodie at Catch the Bug

Oldies But Goodies!

Hi, it's 'Oldie but a Goodie Thursday at Catch the Bug, time to feature some of Bugaboo's earlier images, I made this quick card showcasing this little cutie, Girl Side Peeker she so remind me of my sister when she was a little girl. I'm sending it to her to cheer her up, her rheumatoid arthritis is playing her up at the moment, she's in a lot of pain and can barely hobble around the house. She's waiting to have some kind of nuclear injection in her knees which will hopefully ease the pain and improve her mobility, I'm hoping the appointment comes through quickly. 
Thanks for visiting, hope you have a good day.

June challenge at Sweet Stampin' Christmas

Good morning, it's time for our June Challenge at Christmas at Sweet Stampin'... that means we're halfway through the year...already, I think someone must have stolen a large chunk of it!
This month I made a circular card (it does stand up, I cut a small piece off the bottom inside the card to give a straight edge to balance on). The stamp is one of a set from C.C. Designs, Snowman Kids, coloured with copics and fussy cut to stand inside the snowflake die cut, which I cut from glitter card. I added a bow, stamped sentiment tag and some little bells.
If you want to get ahead with your Christmas makes, this would be a great time to join us! There's more inspiration to be seen over on the Challenge Blog, so why not hop over and take a look!

I'll be back in a bit with another card!
