Don't you forget about me







I am entering in this card for the Saturate Canary Movie Inspiration Challenge # 35.
The movie is Pitch Perfect.  I absolutely love that movie.  This is Becca from Barden Belles.  The sketch is from Hanna a very talented lady, whom I a big fan of. Please visit her blog Hannas Hobbyblogg.  and see her amazing work with Magnolia.
I used the Rapunzel digital images and just used the face.  I used the butterfly image from SU's Nature's Own stamp set.  I used the clock image from SU's Sense of Time stamp set and the floral image from the Verve's Because of You stamp set.  The Designer Paper was alot scrap paper from the SU.   It was a great way of using up the odd shape paper.  I just hate throwing away any paper weird I know.

So don't you forget about me ....  Leave a comment to let me know you dropped by.
Thank you

Butterfly Kisses


I have made this card for two challenges the first is the sketch  by MOJO # 275 the second is for Saturated canary Challenge # 34 Inspiration song.

The inspiration for this card is from the very moving song about a Father singing about his little girl on her wedding day, called Butterfly Kisses by Bod Carlisle.  It very heartfelt and I love it.  Listen to it here.

Thank you for looking.  Please leave a comment so I know you dropped by.

Where do all the broken hearts go?





Today's card is for the anything goes at Stampin' For the Weekend.   I loved this image from Saturated Canary and I have dying to colour her up.  I took a break from making Christmas Cards and had really creative morning.  I still to have to add crystal effects on the glasses, but that would mean I had to wait to scan in the image and I couldn't wait.

I used the sentiment from Stampin' UP! whimsical words (or something like that).  The background paper is all from SU.  I had some left of scrap of pink paper so I used my heart punch to create a little detail.  The coffee stain was made using copics, and I got out my spritzer out to help create the aged look.
Thank you for looking.

I'm not crazy I'm just a little unwell....

Today's card is for Mad for Markers Challenge....Use copic Multiliner.

I coloured in the image Ratatouille from Saturated Canary about a week ago inspired by the talented Maria Therese from Msscrapping. I loved the way she created shadows.  I used the colours from dp paper in the circle with a complete different layout in mind. But it just looked wrong. In the end the card put itself together it was really weird. The more I added the better it looked.

I used a black multiliner to create the faux stitching.  The sentiment it from the greeting farm and the butterfly my absolute  favourite stamp is from stampin' Up!.

Thank you for looking.

Purple Rain






Today card is for The Play Date Cafe challenge #152.  I love black and white with a splash of colour it always looks so elegant.  I chose a wedding style themed card.  I love this stamp from stampedous called Bloom (I think).  I used some glitter around the edges to highlight the petals and I used my purple spica pen to create some detail.  The designer paper is from Stampin' UP! and the sentiment is also from Stampin' Up! the stamp set well scripted.

  The layout is from Mojo 260 I used moved to fit a rectangle version.  I love the flower so much I am going to cut this card in half and just used the flower as a thank you card perhaps.

 Thank you for looking

I have used the double take from Saturated Canary coloured her in with copics a clear spica pen.  I used the colour scheme of Night of Navy, Sahara Sands,  Blush.  I used some flowers to decorated the corner using the Night of Navy Brads.  So I used a Bride image, I used Blush colour and Brads to qualify for the challenge.
