For the love of Mo!!

Evening Folks!  I know majority of you will be in bed already but I just wanted to share with you a card that I made this evening just for the luv of Mo Manning's images.
I decided to play with white on white as I luv this little girl and thought the image could speak for itself.  I have used coredinations cardstock embossed with one of the new 6 x 6 folders available from Crafters Companion.  The swirl is a doohickey die, the leaves are from La-la land crafts and the flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts.
Here is a close up of the sweet image coloured in with Copics.  I will be entering this card into Mo's DP2 challenge which is "Cute and cuddly".  Thanks for stopping by.  Lotsa luv, hugs xxxx

The Paper Shelter DT - Halloween

Morning Peeps!  Where does the time go?  Can you believe it's time for another challenge over at The Paper Shelter and this week it's all about Halloween!!
For my card I decided to go with this gorgeous new image called "Getting ready for Halloween".  I fell for it as it's not your traditional colours.  All I did was print it out and dolly it up with my fabulous new dies that I won from La-la land crafts, the haunted house and spiky leaf, matted it onto coredinations cardstock and added a few flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts.  Hope you will join us this week over at The Paper Shelter as the ever generous Veronica is offering a $30 voucher to the winner.  Have a great week!  Lotsa luv, hugs xxxx

Krista's Butterfly Baby

Morning Peeps!  Decided this morning that I wanted to make a card just for fun so I grabbed one of my absolute favourite artists of all time, Krista from Saturated Canary's image.  This one is called "Butterfly Baby", isn't she just delightful?  As with all of her images I just luv the beautiful big eyes.
I have used a patchwork effect dp for this card which I found in my stash and though quite appropriate for a baby girl and I've matted it onto coredinations cardstock.  The ribbon is from my stash and the die used is by Marianne Designs.  The flowers are all from Wild Orchid Crafts. 
As always I have coloured her in with Copics.  Skin - E11, E00, R20; Hair - E55, E53, E51, E50; Wings and babygrow - E70, E42, E41, R85, R83, R81, RV000; Eyes - B24, B21; Shading - B000, C3, C1.  I will be entering my card into the following challenges :
In the pink - Pink plus one
Simon Says - Dies and/or punches
Wild Orchid Challenge - Anything goes
Thanks for stopping by.  Lotsa luv, hugs xxxxx

The Paper Shelter DT - Love beats all!!

Morning Luvlies!  How fab, we're midweek again so not long till the weekend lol.  Time for a new challenge theme over at The Paper Shelter and this week it's "LOVE BEATS ALL".
This week I have used a combination of elements from two seperate digis.  The image is called "Love in Venice" and the backing paper came with another digi called "Executive Woman".  Thought they fitted together quite well.  The sentiment is a stamp that I've had for absolute ages from Whimsy Stamps and the flowers come from Wild Orchid Crafts.
I have been rather busy with other samples of late so it was lovely to just be able to print off a ready coloured digi although this would not be my first choice as I really luv colouring in myself but fortunate for instances like this when you need a card in a hurry lol.  Hope you will find the time this week to join us over at The Paper Shelter for your chance to win the awesome prize of a $30 voucher.  Thanks for stopping by, hope you have a good week.  Lotsa luv, hugs xxxx

Saturated Canary for fun!

Evening my friends!  Hope you've all been well.  I've been rather busy on the home front but decided to quickly make this card whilst I relax this evening.
The gorgeous image is one of Krista's newly released digi's called "Mousey Mo", isn't she adorable?  The dps are from my stash and are some that I've had forever, can't even remember where they came from lol.  The swirl is my all time fave Magnolia doohicky die, ribbon, gem clip and bulldog grip are from my stash and the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.
I have coloured the image in with my Copics and added some faux stitching with a fineliner.  I will be entering my card into Saturated Canary's Challenge where their theme is to use office supplies as well as Wild Orchid Challenge who have an "Anything Goes" challenge.  Thanks for stopping by!  Lotsa luv, hugs xxxx
