Mo's Digital pencil #24 and Tanda Teaser #139

Good afternoon everyone, I hope you all had a good weekend, perhaps some of you managed to get to the NEC? Unfortunately I found out about it too late so couldn't make the arrangements, maybe next year!

My creation for today is for 2 challenges, Mo's Digital Pencil #24 which is a sketch and Tanda Teaser #139 with the theme of Teen Times.

I've used an image from Mo's Digtal Pencil coloured with PMs, all the card is from WRMK and the sentiment is one I created myself on my PC.

Skattykats Stitch & Sketch DT Card

This weeks challenge at Skattykats is Stitch & Sketch. I think you'll agree that the sketch is quite unusual and we'd love to see what you do with it. Hop over to Skattykats to see Kats card.

I've created my card with MME Wild Asparagus paper from my DT kit, the circles are cut with Nestabilities, text is cut with Sizzix dies and embellished with Stickles and the heart is hand cut.

A very Happy Oliver!

This post has absolutely nothing to do with card making or any other craft for that matter but I just had to share this photo with you. It's of one of my cats, Oliver, road testing the new sofa. I think he approves, don't you?

Best Wishes Puppy & Shades of Grey

With the nicer weather we are having at the moment and the fact that my house is just about back to normal I've been feeling a little more inspired and I've managed to cards today.

My first card is for three challenges
1. Sketch Saturday #93 (I really liked this sketch and will be using it again!)
2. Die Cut Dreams #38 - No Flowers Allowed!
3. Allsort Challenges #42 - Just For men.

I've used Bazzill card, K&Co paper, Craftwork Crads Card Candy, nestabilities, Personal Impression sentiment stamp and the super-cute puppy (Wilbur) digi stamp is from Pollycraft, coloured with PMs.

My second card is just for the one challenge, Secret Crafter #73 - Shades of Grey. I used Papermania card and paper, nestabilities, card candy and the stamp is a foam one from QVC. I had every intention of adding more embellishments and bling but I got this far and decided I quite liked it nice and simple.
