Pink Chicks...

Good Morning lovely friends...

...and so it continues - this gorgeous spell of summer weather, we've certainly waited long enough for it!

We have a new challenge starting today at
and it is 
Get Out Your Rubber!
(use a rubber stamp) - well go on then, what were you really thinking! (-;

Our sponsor this time is lovely Tracy from fabulous
with a £10 voucher for the lucky winner
For today's card I have used the gorgeous stamp Stamping Bella Stamp - 

I took one look at these cuties and KNEW they had to be pink (Perhaps they are going to be flamingoes one day)!

They are coloured with Copics and the design paper is Giddy Up Girl by Carta Bella.
I have finished off by adding some Glamour Dust to their lovely boa and a doodled frame.

and here we are...The Pink Ladies on a girls night out!  I'm the one with the hat!...

Twinkle Twinkle Little Star...

Good Morning lovely friends
Oh my - what a glorious spell of weather we are having here at the moment - scorching!

We have a new challenge starting today at 
and it is 
O is for Overlay

Our wonderful sponsor this time is 
and the prize for the lucky winner is two digi's of their choice.

I think the heat got to me making this card - I adore the image, I used 

The overlay aspect was a bit taxing - plus it is soooooo hot the vellum kept curling up like those funny red fish we used to get in Christmas crackers years ago!

I coloured this gorgeous image with copics and printed the image on a piece of vellum which I 'laid over' (overlay)! the top.

Finally I added a cute sentiment (Which kept smudging)! and a little star charm.

Anyways, I got there in the end!

Thank You!...

Happy Monday lovely friends

Lovely news from the mouse house today!

I have joined the amazing DT at fabulous Dies To Die For
It's a big thank you from me to Tracy, Lou, Faye and Jane for inviting me along!

Soooo....today's card is my first DTDF DT post; I am feeling more than a teensy bit excited!
I have used the gorgeous stamp set Pix's Favourites and Mini Messages by Mama Elephant.

I was inspired by the very talented Kristina Werner in making this card - there is a brilliant tutorial HERE for the painting technique I used.

I decided to try something a little different and coloured (tried to colour)! with Distress Markers.  I absolutely love the effect you get with Distress Inks and am full of admiration for you wonderful DI Artists.  I have some practice to do but am determined not to give up!
