Good morning, it's my turn to host the challenge at Fab'n' Funky this week, which means I got to chose the theme...yay, I do love a bit of power :))) Being a very kind hearted person I chose a really easy one- Feature a Creature, so any creature, real or fantasy, and any occasion is acceptable.
I'm sharing the birthday card I made for my brother...he's a doggy person...and old...(ok he's 5 years younger than I am, but that's still pretty old!). The stamp is from Stamping Bella, not sure of the stamped sentiment, the die cut 'seriously' is Picket Fence Studios. I used a very old Paw Print stamp from Do Crafts to stamp the background. 

There's plenty more ideas from my team mates  over at Fab'n'Funky, so pease hop over take a would be great if you choose to join us this week with your own beautiful creations.
Thanks for looking, have a fabulous day!

A little batty...

Stella Says Sketch Challenge
It's time for a new sketch challenge at Catch the Bug-

Here's the sketch-
and this is my card, featuring Goth Girl and one of the digi  papers from Halloween 2
I coloured the image with copics and added glitter details to her skirt with a clear glitter pen (you can't see it in the photo, sorry) printed  some extra bats, coloured and fussy cut them. I changed the colour of the bat digi paper to purple to match my design and mounted it onto silvery glitter card. 
The sentiment is die cut.
Thanks for visiting, have a lovely Sunday.

Autumn Colours at Sweet Stampin'

Good afternoon, running a little late today with my DT card for our new challenge at Sweet Stampin', my husband is off for a jolly with the 'lads' for a couple of days, so I've invited some friends around tomorrow for 'a girls' night, thought I'd better clean the house a bit before they come :). It's probably been a complete waste of time as my lovely Mathilda is more than capable of mucking it up again before they arrive, but at least I've made an effort!Who cares about a bit of dog slobber!!!

Anyway, back to the challenge and the card. The theme this week is Autumn Colours/ Harvest, lovely, I do love these colours! I used a beautiful Stamping Bella stamp called Tiny Townie Fay Loves Fall, this was given to me by my lovely teamie and blogging friend Wends, not only is she an extremely talented crafter, she's a wonderful warm and generous person. Thanks Wends!
I coloured the little sweetie with my copics and used distress inks to make a subtle cloudy background. I die cut 3 banners from shades of orange cardstock and embossed them using 3 different efs. I added a couple of die cut leaves, stamped sentiment and twine.
There are some stunning cards from my teamies this week, I think everyone loves the autumnal colours! Please hop over and take a look- we'd love to see what you create using this lovely theme, so please do play along with us!
Thanks for stopping by, enjoy your weekend.

Something wicked...

Good morning, Crafty Catz Challenge #478 is up and running, this week we're sponsored by the fabulous Paper Shelter 

 Jac has picked the theme of Halloween for us - as always the theme is optional. 
The DT were given a gorgeous image to play with, Witching Hour, The whole team have used the same image this week, I really love how different each card can look when this happens! Just hop over and see the variety for yourself!
The digi comes with a coloured version and papers as well as the uncoloured version I chose to use (really wanted to have a go at colouring this myself :) I used copics to colour, including the background and tried to give her face a bit of an eerie green glow from the potion bottle...not a total success! The cobwebs and script on the black background are stamped using Antique Linen Distress oxide Ink, the bats and web flourishes are heat embossed with black ep.
 I hope you decide to play along with our challenge this week - remember the theme is optional!
Thanks for visiting
Have a great weekend
