Guest Designer at Barnemix

Hello Bloggers

I'm very excited to share this post with you today
A FaceBook friend of mine, Anne Lise Johannessen asked me if I would like to be  Guest Designer for her website Barnemix, and of course I jumped at the chance

The image is from the fab sponsor MilkCoffee Digi Stamps and the theme is 
Use Fall Colours
I coloured her using my ProMarkers and added Wink of Stella clear glitter pen to her wings. The paper is from my stash and I added paper flowers, leaves, pearls & bakers twine to finish the card

3 Little Christmas Girls

Hello Bloggers

Today is the start of a new Team B challenge at

and as always we have an

Anything Goes

I used the super cute

image and coloured with my ProMarkers. The papers are from my stash and I used a Marianne die for the poinsettia & Memory Box dies for the hanging hearts and swirls. The sentiment was from a DoCrafts sheet and I used a chunky white glitter & silver glitter Sakura pen to decorate

Follow Your Dreams with All Dressed Up

Hello Bloggers

I am sharing one of this month's New Releases from

and this fabulous image is called

Follow Your Dreams

I decided I wanted to go for a CAS card using bright colours and used my ProMarkers to colour the image as well as to do the blue shadow round the image and the edge. I used scraps of plain card & paper from my stash for the layers, banners & words. I am really happy with how this card ended up and think I may do more bright cards

Don't forget you can find all of Wendy's fantastic All Dressed Up images in the etsy shop here, and join in our blog challenges here & FaceBook challenges here

My Great News

Hello Bloggers

I've been itching to share this post for days and now I finally can :)

I've been asked to be on the DT for the fabulous SLSLines and it took me all of a second to say YES
I love the 'alternative' images at SLSLines and although I do love playing with the cute & girly images I wanted the challenge of working with something different

I don't have a project to share with you yet as my first make is for the October Challenge which is on 12th October but I can share a sneak peek with you

You can take a look at all of the great images in the Etsy Store

There is a FaceBook group here where you can share all your makes and find out all the latest news

I can't wait to start sharing my makes using these fab images with you

1st Karleigh Sue Fortnightly Challenge

Hi Bloggers

Karleigh Sue challenges will now be once every fortnight and I am proud to be sharing my DT work for the 1st of these challenges, which is

I decided to make a card I could use for either a male or female birthday and used the great 
which I coloured with my ProMarkers in blue's & turquoise's. I printed the image twice and decoupaged up the bows,balls & icing on the middle cake. I added a small flat back heart, Stickles & Liquid Pearls along with a clear glitter pen to decorate the cake. The sentiment is a large die cut from 2 pieces of card I stuck together with DST before cutting and then decorated round it with small flat back gems in 2 shades of blue. The papers were from my stash as were the teeny thin ribbons I used down the side of the card. As I wanted this to be good for men as well as women I didn't add too much ribbon and decided against flowers, it's quite a simple layout but I like it

Don't forget to enter the challenge here and you can share all you Karleigh Sue makes in the FaceBook Fan Group
So why not pop over to the Karleigh Sue Digi's Etsy Shop and take a look at all of the fabulous images you can buy to use in our challenges

Monster Celebrations

Hello Bloggers

I'm sharing a little card I just made using a super cute image from a company I've not used before .......... and I think I'm in love with them

Isn't that such a sweet monster :)
It's from 2CuteInk and is called

I coloured with my ProMarkers and decided to go for a CAS card. I used a thin black fine liner pen to draw a line round the edge and black memento ink for the sentiment. Once mounted onto plain turquoise and black card I added small gems in pink & orange to finish my card

Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog
