The Paper Shelter DT - Anything goes & a winner!!!!!!!!!!!!

Morning Lovlies!  Can you believe it's only a week to Christmas?  I can't!  Where has this year gone? Anyhoo onto today's card and its for The Paper Shelter.  This week our theme is "Anything goes" so you've no excuse not to join in lol.  Thanks to those of you that joined in the blog hop with us, each of the dt have chosen a winner from their comments so do be sure to check out the main post on the challenge blog to see if it was you!
I decided to go plain and simple with this one which is very unusual for me but I didn't wanna cover up this lovely paper.  The image I have used is called "The beautiful skier" and comes with this backing paper, how fab is that?!  The bow I've made from some tulle I had in my ribbon drawer and pushed a huge pearl brad through.
As always I have coloured the image in with Copics, luved doing this one tbh.  She was such fun to colour.  I then cut her out and popped her onto some foam pads.  Hope you will find the time to join in with us this week over at The Paper Shelter.  Not sure if I'm gonna have a chance to blog anything before Christmas so in case I don't here's wishing you a very Merry Christmas.  Hope Santa will be good to you!!  Lotsa luv, hugs xxxx

For a special friend!

Morning Folks!  Much warmer today, let's just hope the big freeze is over for a while lol.  Just wanted to share with you a card that I made last night with the gorgeous image from Make It Crafty called "Girls Secret Swing".
I've been itching to colour this image up since it was released quite a while back and have not had the chance until now.  I think they are just the sweetest little pair don't you?  The dps I have used are by Magnolia, the doily and ribbon is from my stash and the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.  The sentiment is "A friendship recipe" by LOTV.
As always I have coloured them in with my Copics and guess what?  For a change I've not used any spray & sparkle, shock horror lol!  I'll be entering this card into the following challenge :
Simon Says - Favourites (Ribbon, butterfly and flowers)
Hope you like my creation for today and have a great weekend ahead.  Lotsa luv, hugs xxxx

Another Saturated Canary!

Evening lovely peeps!!  Just a quick post from me this evening as I'm off to bed with a horrible cold but wanted to share with you my creation for today.
I decided to have a play and reached for another gorgeous Saturated Canary image and followed their challenge theme which is "Hot Chocolate & Marshmallows".  The dps I have used are by First Edition papers, the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, the ribbon, pearls and pins are all from my stash.
As always I have coloured in with my Copics and used pink spray & sparkle by Crafters Companion over the image.  Hope you all have a good evening!  Lotsa luv, hugs xxxx
