Week 22 at Just Inspirational Challenges

Hi Bloggers

Firstly I want to say a big sorry for not being around much lately, my mojo did a runner again and I just had nothing to show you, but that's all changed now Mr mojo is back and fingers crossed is staying put for a while :0)

So its Week 22 at Just inspirational Challenges this week which means its Team A's turn and I was sooooooooooooooooooo happy when I saw our fantastic sponsor for this challenge

I adore Krista's images and couldn't wait to get started on this weeks project. The inspirational photo this week is

gorgeous spring piccy and lots of colours for you to make you creation and be in with a chance of winning 2 Saturated Canary images.
Here is what I came up with

I used the fabby 'Party Hardy' digi and coloured her with pro markers before cutting her out with a nestie. I found some real pretty blue paper which has glitter embedded into the actual paper, not on top so it doesn't shed or feel bumpy, and cut a piece the same size and shape as the image and stuck it behind the image at an angle. The spotty backing paper is actually from a Christmas stack but I thought the colours and dots fitted perfect with the image. To add some texture I found some oddments of green ribbon in 2 different shades, stitched along the middle in a different colour thread and ruched them up slightly, sticking down with extra tacky dst so they have no chance of falling off :0) I used more of the lighter green ribbon, gathered up, behind the sentiment which is a LOTV clear circle stamp. The little cupcake on the ribbon end is a wooden embellishment and I coloured it using pearlescent and chalk ink pads.

I hope you will pop along to the Just Inspirational Challenges blog and take a look at my fellow teamies makes, visiting their blogs for more info, and join in with this great challenge.

Just Inspirational Week 20

Hi Bloggers

I cant believe its week 20 at Just Inspirational Challenges already
and this week its my team TEAM A's turn to show our makes. Head over to the blog to see what all my fellow teamies have made.
We are sponsored this week by


and we had 2 inspirational photo's for this weeks challenge

and here is my make

I just had to use this scrummy digi because of the photo of all those sweet treats. The image is coloured with pro markers, and I printed off a second image so i could decoupage the cherry,heart and green sweeties on the cakes and then added glossy accents to make them pop out.
I used lots of colours as i wanted it to be a really cheerful card and the sentiment is one I made that you could only get by subscribing to our newsletter. If you would like some occasional freebie word sentiments then make sure you sign up to receive the newsletter as sometimes this will be the only way to get them.
I finished the card off with lots of colours of card candi, i love the stuff.

I hope you will join us in the challenge this week

A New Make

Hello Bloggers
Just a quick post with a card I made using one of my new purchases, a Saturated Canary digi, ohhhhhhh I love Krista's work.
So here is my make

I coloured her with pastel pro markers in green and pink shades and mounted her onto a die cut piece of paper that had the flowers already down the side, well they were at the bottom but i turned it round :0)
I used a matching backing paper and covered a 6x6 square card. Using paper of the same shades I made some mini bunting with a cute little Whimsy die cut I have and threaded it with white silk cotton. The recipe stamp is from LOTV and I used pro markers again to colour it pink to match with the colour scheme, fixed to the card with foam pads and added a flower headed hatpin for decoration. Finally some Craftwork Cards card candi in opposite corners and colours finished off my card.
I hope you like my creation and would love some comments.
