The Crafty Pad Challenge #118 - Circles


Hello and Happy Easter!!! This is my last week as guest designer over at The Crafty Pad. Here is another Easter card, this time for The Crafty Pad's Challenge #118 - Circles - I used the Bunny digi image again. This week's challenge is sponsored by Letraset and The Crafty Pad.

I decided to use some more Basic Grey Olivia paper since I loved the cute little animals in the background and thought it seemed appropriate for the season. The tiny brads are from the same Basic Grey collection. You probably saw this sketch before, I used The Sweet Stop's Sketch #103. I also used my new Stampin Up cs and ink Baja Breeze - I inked up the edges of the kraft cs with the Baja Breeze Ink.

I entered this in The Spotted Chick's That's Krafty Thursday #50.

Paper: Basic Grey Olivia dp, Stampin Up Baja Breeze cs
Stamps: The Crafty Pad's Digi Image Bunny, Amy R's Spring Sentiments
Ink: StazOn Jet Black, Stampin Up Baja Breeze
Accessories: Copics, nestabilities, Spica Clear Glitter pen, Basic Grey Olivia brads,

Happy Easter Bobbers!


I found this adorable digi Easter Anya for free over on The Greeting Farm's Blog and I couldn't resist! It was perfect for my daughter's Easter card. I used one of the previous sketches as well from TGF's Farm Fresh Challenge. I originally only coloured this image as a test for colours but it turned out so well that I ended up cutting her out and eventually it turned into this! I used Basic Grey's Olivia dp and finally got to use some of the ribbon doilies that match. I popped her up with some pop dots over the oval background which I coloured using a sponge applicator and Ranger's Distress Ink in Tumbled Glass. Some rhinestones from my dollar store stash finished everything off. The sentiment on the inside is a freebie digi as well from Pink Cat Studio.

I entered this card in The Greeting Farm's Farm Fresh Friday Challenge - Digital Get Down and The Spotted Chick's That's Krafty Thursday #50.


Paper: Stampin Up Crumb Cake, Basic Grey Olivia

My New Favourite Card!!

I wanted to share with you my new fav card!! I attended Shanna's card class at Dat's last weekend and made this awesome card!! I don't know what it is, the paper, the image, the layout, the colours, maybe all of it together? I just love it! And I plan to make a few of these, I can think of a few women who could use this little pick me up :-) We used Kraftin' Kimmie's Krafty Quotes #1 and of course Brigitte enjoying a bubbly bath! The dp is awesome, had to get me some. It's from Echo Park's For the Record line.

The Crafty Pad Challenge #115 - Flowers




Hello!! Guess What??!! I have been asked to be a guest designer this month over at The Crafty Pad's Challenge Blog, and I couldn’t be more flattered! This is my first gig!!


The Challenge this week is 'flowers' and I used this adorable image called ‘Cat in Window’ from The Crafty Pad, which you can find here. The sponser this week is Crafty Emma's Store. Hope you can join in!

For my card I wanted to use this pretty paper - Mabel by My Mind's Eye Stella Rose Collection and I used The Sweet Stop's Sketch 98. I thought the sentiment from CTMH's Sensational Season was perfect. Did you notice I paper peiced the curtains? I thought it provided so much more interest than just colouring them. Not sure if you can tell by the photo, but I used a bit of my Spica Clear Glitter pen on the flowers and the heart on the kitty's chest.

Paper: My Mind's Eye Mabel, Stampin Up Crumb Cake and Not Quite Navy
Stamp: My Crafty Pad's Cat in Window (Digital), CTMH Sensational Season
Ink: Copics, Wild Honey and Vintage Photo DistDistress Ink, SU Not Quite Navy
Accessories: Stampin Up Scallop Punch, CTMH Pearl Opaques, Prisma flowers , Spica Clear Glitter Pen
This card is dedicated to Su Ling and Mingo (my two Siamese Cats who are no longer with me).
I'm entering this card in Paper Sundaes Challenge #63 Spring Blossoms and Catch the Bug's Anything Goes as well.
