Dragonfly Dreams Ribbons and Bows

For this month’s challenge at Dragonfly Dreams, we  have all been adding gorgeous Ribbons and Bows!
Our sponsor is A Day for Daisies, and I chose the gorgeous “Music” image to work with.

Isn’t she just gorgeous? I love the pretty layers of her dress and the old fashioned Pianoforte she is playing.
Come and join us for the Ribbons and Bows challenge at Dragonfly Dreams, we love to see what you have been creating.
Happy stamping!

Patty’s Autumn Challenge

This month at Pattie’s Creations challenge, we are doing an Autumn (or Fall) or Halloween challenge.
I have chosen the Autumn Wreath image to use for my card for this challenge.

Here is my card:

I have used some lovely retired paper for the background, I love the look of the wood planks.
The image has been coloured using Copic Markers and then fussy cut – yep, with scissors!
I hope you will join us with your own Autumn project this month at Pattie’s Creations Challenge.
Happy stamping!

Back To School Challenge

This month at Pattie’s Creations Design Challenge we are having a Back To School Challenge.
Here in Australia, we don’t have long school holidays in the middle of the year, we have them over the Christmas break.  But in our house, we don’t have them at all!  Or should that be, we have them all the time!??  We are a homeschooling family, so we don’t have back to school at all.

I have used the very cute Mr Bookworm With Books image, and since my son reads heaps of books, I thought I would make him a book mark.

The image has been coloured with Copic Markers, and I have used some patterned papers from my stash, and mounted it on some red cardstock – my son’s favourite colour!
Please share with us your Back To School projects at Patties Creations, we love to see what you have been creating.
Happy stamping!

Dragonfly Dreams August Challenge

Our sponsor for the month of August at Dragonfly Dreams is All Dressed Up.

All dressed up Stamps

Since the theme this month is Must Have Wings, I have chosen to use the gorgeous free image, Butterflies.

I have printed the image on to some retired Stampin’ Up! patterned papers and then coloured the image with Copic Markers.  Such pretty butterflies!
I hope you will join us at Dragonfly Dreams Challenges, and share your winged projects 🙂
Happy stamping!

Christmas in July Reminder

Christmas in July at Crafty Boots

This week at Crafty Boots Challenges we are doing Christmas in July.  I have to admit that it has certainly been cold enough here in this part of Australia this winter and we have had falls of snow a number of times.  We don’t normally have a white Christmas in Australia, so it is nice to be reminded of what a traditional Christmas feels like.

My card for today’s challenge features this gorgeous Kitten in a Stocking image from Aurora Wings.  The image has been coloured with Copic Markers, then fussy cut and mounted over some silver cardstock.
I hope you will share your Christmas cards with us at Crafty Boots Challenges – it’s never too early to get started on those Christmas cards!!
Happy Stamping!

Crafty Girlz Challenges

This month at Crafty Girlz Challenges our sponsor is Stitchy Bears:

I have used the A Bird Among The Branches image for my card.

This is such a beautiful image, that I wanted it to be the feature of my card, so I have kept the card very simple.  The image had been coloured with Copic Markers.
Make sure you join us and share your creations with us at Crafty Girlz challenges this month.
Happy Stamping!
