Just Magnolia Challenge

Sorry I havn't been around for a while, naughty blogger!! I got back from Turkey 2 weeks ago and just couldn't get back into crafting, don't know what it was but couldn't find my mojo. Anyway when I saw Tabs fantastic sketch on the Just Magnolia blog I thought it was a great opportunity to get back into it, so as today is my day off work I locked myself in my dining room, turned the radio up loud ( to drown out the banging from next door, new neighbours are moving in, but knocking it to pieces first ) and got all my craft stuff out around me.

This is what I came up with, so thanks Tab for getting me going again.
I have used this lovely Tilda image coloured with Promarkers and whispers. I have used Anita's 3D gloss on the balloons, glamour dust on her wings. Papers are from the jumbo set from Costco. Gems from stash. The netting is from one of those little bags you put your soap tablets in for the washing machine. Sentiment Clare Curd stamp.

Sugar Bowl Challenge

This is my second post today so please scroll down and take a look at my other challenge card. The challenge at the Sugar Bowl this week is a sketch challenge. It is a fabulous sketch designed by Judy with the option to include 'sparkle'.

I have used this cute little Penny Black stamp 'kickin' coloured with Promarkers and pearly paints. I have used irridescent medium to water down the paints, so this is my 'sparkle' element. If you zoom in, you might just be able to make it out. The papers and bee, I received in a swap. The sentiment is Clare Curd and gems from stash.

Whiff of Joy Challenge Card

The challenge on Whiff of Joy this week is a recipe challenge. The challenge is to use 3 patternpapers, 3 flowers and one ribbon. The prize is a gorgeous rubber stamp called 'Shy Willow'.

I have used the 'Willow with Cookies' stamp coloured with Whispers and Promarkers. Papermania 'Simply Elegant' papers. Flowers, ribbon and gems from stash.
