Anything Goes at Southern Girls Challenge!

This is my last challenge for the year but the second last for Southern Girls Challenge. It's a nice easy challenge this fortnight - Anything Goes and we are sponsored by


Lacy Sunshine

I coloured Rory in with tria markers. I added kindyglitz to the paper and only added a few embellishments as I thought the paper was busy enough...
As I will not be working as much next year I am hoping to be a bit more creative in my card designs next year.. Fingers
I hope that you can join us this fortnight at Southern Girls Challenge.

It's a Stick Up at Southern Girls Challenge!

Wow, I cannot believe I haven't posted a card for two months... Being on one design team has made me a little lazy in the crafting department... Next year hopefully I will have a little more time to make cards for fun as I will only be working three days a week.
Anyway, it is time for a new challenge at Southern Girls challenge and we would like to see sticky things on your creation.. as long as the back is sticky, it counts.

2 Cute Ink Digital Stamps

I used a pre-coloured image and background from The Paper Shelter called Halloween Rules. It was a freebie this week. I made my own sticker using Jac paper which I put through my Brother Scan n Cut. Then I added glitter. I just added buttons to finish off the card.
I hope that you can join us this fortnight at Southern Girls Challenge.

Shake your groove thing or just make it wiggle a bit at Southern Girls challenge!

Time for a new challenge at Southern Girls challenge and this fortnight we are sponsored by



Our challenge to you is to make a shaker card or a card with a movable object.
This was my first time making a shaker card and i am not sure I am overly happy with my first attempt but it's a start.

I used small princess by Ppinky Dolls. As always I only coloured the image minimally cos i just don't think my colouring would do it justice. I cut the crown out with my brother cut n scan and added the stars and  glitter (which I regretted after I added it). I added the rhinestones around the crown then I added rubons onto the black card stock.
I hope that you can join us this fortnight at SGC.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
* Little Red Wagon - Give us your background
* Jo's Scrap Shack - Always Anything Goes
* PolkaDoodles - Anything Goes
* Crafty sentiments Designs - Anything Goes
* Emerald City Crafts - Always Anything Goes

Add some stamping at Southern Girls Challenge!

Another month gone, another month closer to Christmas... Time is just flying by which brings us to a new challenge at Southern Girls challenge. This fortnight we would like you to "Add some Stamping" to your creations.
We are sponsored by


I loved this challenge as I got to colour one of my many stamps that I have either never coloured up or haven't for a very long time.
So I decided to colour up my favourite Magnolia stamp Tilda with cute skirt. She is just adorable and I love colouring her up.I kept the card pretty simple. I created the background behind Tilda using distress inks, then I used a swirled background stamp which I embossed with embossing powder that I have not used for a very long time. With the scraps left over from the background I punched out some flowers, made the ledge Tilda is sitting on and added the sentiment. I then just added lots of rhinestones.
I hope that you will join us for this fab challenge at Southern Girls Challenge.
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
* A Gem of a Challenge - Birthday Wishes
* Polkadoodles - Anything Goes
* Really Reasonable Ribbon - Anything Goes with Ribbon
* The Paper Shelter - Blooming Days
* Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge - Happy Birthday

Tic Tac Toe at Southern Girl's Challenge!

Before I get into the new challenge I just thought I'd let you know why things are so quiet on my blog.... As you may know I am part of a few design teams - The Digi Bell's, Craft Your Passion and Southern Girls Challenge. Well Craft Your Passion just never started back up after the Christmas break. Lisa who was running the blog just disappeared and never returned so i am hoping that she is ok and just decided life was too busy.. Then in the last month we decided that The Digi Bell's would take a break from designing while Elisabeth Bell spent some time creating. So I am only designing for The Southern Girls challenge which I only do once a month so posts at the moment are only that often. I would love to make more cards and get creative again but I have had a few health issues that I am still dealing with so hopefully in the not to distance future I will get creative again.

So now it is time to start our new challenge at Southern Girls challenge. Our theme is Tic Tac Toe

I used the middle row of the bingo board - Dies, Image, Bling

I used Rory Life is Grand from Lacy Sunshine Stamps. I coloured Rory in with Tria markers and added a rhinestone to the flower on her hat. I used kaisercraft papers and used a border punch for the decorative edges. I then die cut some butterflies out, added the hearts and the rhinestones. I hope that you can join us for this fortnights challenge at Southern Girls Challenge.

Zoe Butterfly!

It is my turn to post over on The Digi Bell's blog and it is certainly long overdue. I must sincerely apologise.. I know this has become a regular occurrence but I truly just am just forgetful...
Anyway I am here and I absolutely love the card I just created. I am also going to use this as my Elisabeth Bell's World challenge card as the theme is "All about Butterflies". 
I coloured Zoe Butterfly in with tria markers and die cut her out. I die cut out the balloons (which were a gift from Jennifer then all the other embellishments are from a Kaisercraft paper pad - save the date.
I hope that you can join us over at Elisabeth Bell's World challenge. We only have two entries so great chance of winning some fab digi's. Just remember to use an Elisabeth Bell image. Zoe was a freebie from signing up to Elisabeth Bell's creative e-book.
