Happy Birthday Geetha


Hi Everyone,

I made this card for a lovely lady at work. She is my supervisor and I have it on good authority she is celebrating a big milestone, so Happy Birthday.

I used the colour create colour challenge of Aqua, puple and white.

I coloured the image to look like my friend with copics and I have used SU Whimsical words and Love Life sets.

Thank you for looking

Yee Haw!


Hello everyone,


I found I am doing more girl cards than boy cards, so I decided to make a boy card. I have been eyeing off Sheriff Ian from TGF for a while and finally found the right colours to colour him in. The Colour Dare and Colour Throwdown both have Poppy Parade, Pear pizazz, chocolate Chip as there main colours for the there challenge. However Colour dare also has very vanilla and Colour Throwdown has So saffron. I used both to fit both challenges. I followed the incredible sketch from Midnight Maddness and was going to do the fancy design, but it was for a boy so I stayed with the simple design. I am also entering this card into the Card for Men challenge which requires a masculine birthday card.

I hope you like the card.

See you around

Wedding Flowers card


Hello everyone

Today's card was my second larger card and I did it with the new Colour Create Challenge (pink, green and cream) in mind.

Wanted to make a wedding card, but something different. I keep seeing all these gorgeous couple stamps which I intend to buy but money in a little tight, so I went with the gorgeous gerbras from Flourishes. The Sentiment is from Stampin' Up!. The flowers were coloured in copics with RV02, RV13, YG11, YG06. I added glitter glue to the edges of the pink card and butterflies and added pearls for finishing touches. I added faux stitching around the edges to qualify for the Wild Orchid Challenge of stitching and because of the striped DP I qualify for Speedythe Cat's Friends Challenge of stripes.

Plum Cute Baby Congrats


Hello everyone,

I made today's card with 3 challenges in mind. I wanted to create a baby congratulations card.
I knew I was going to use the Midnight Madness Sketch #74 and then I fell in love with colour combo challenge at Colour Throw Down, which is Perfect Plum, Early Espresso and Very Vanilla. I also wanted to add some stitching to qualify for the Wild orchid challenge. My challenge is to enter the WO challenge a few times.

I had already chosen the stamp from whiff of joy and colour her in copics v17, v95,bv00, e29, e47, e49,e37.

Beautiful Butterflies


Hi Everyone,

I made this card for the basic grey challenge - sparkle. I chose the Basic Grey's Cappella's bravo as I love Blush colour running through it. The borders I have used chocolate chip, very vanilla and wild wasabi as those colours were also in it. The punches were chocochip, sage shadow and blush. I ummed and ahhhed on how to position the 3 circles to make them fit but ended up as shown. I coloured the SU Butterfly with copics G21, G94,G07,E49 and E95. I then added glitter glue all over the butterfy then heat gunned the poor thing to death at it created a golden spritz effects with green shimmer through it when moved around. I added the TGF sentiment as I was aiming for a reflective card for Sympathy. I added pearls to fill in the spaces.

Thank you for looking

Sparkly Elf


Hello Everyone,

Today's card is the TGF's elf as a christmas theme without using traditional colours. I love purple and I had been eyeing off my eggplant paper amongst whisper paper on my desk for a while. I love the colour combo. I have used SU designer paper in eggplant and to create the background. I coloured the elf in copics BV08, E08,E2, and E21. I have used a snowflake punch and added some rhinestones and glitter glue for a bit of glitz and sparkle.
