Always Anything Goes at Craft Your Passion!

A new challenge has started over at Craft Your Passion and as always the challenge is Anything Goes. This week we are sponsored by 

I used Bundle of Dreams from Sami Stamps and coloured it up with tria markers. My brother and his partner have just found out they are having a girl so I decided to colour this image up in pink. The sentiment is a rub-on and I added some embellishments.
 I hope that you can join us this week at Craft Your Passion.

Buttons and Bows at Elisabeth Bell's World!

Apologies for the late post, I am a bit behind with the kids being on school holidays. A new challenge has started at Elisabeth Bell's World and this month we would like to see your creations featuring an Elisabeth Bell image and some buttons and bows. As always there is a fabulous prize if you join in our challenge...
I coloured up Little Lulu from Lissybee Stamps with tria markers. I actually recycled part of this card as I had used it before but I added some embellishments  so that there were buttons and bows....

The Digi Bell's Blog Hop featuring Elisabeth Bell's newest digi!!

It is that time of the month again where we get to create with and introduce you to Elisabeth Bell's newest addition to the digi family.... You should have arrived here from Gina's blog but if you are a bit lost be sure to head on over to The Digi Bell's blog so that you can stop by all the Digi Bell's blogs for your chance to win a fabulous prize.

So by now you have met the adorable
Apple Blossom and Milkshake Baking
which were previously released with Whiff of Joy
This adorable image reminded me a little bit like Punky Brewster so I decided to make her colourful. Found the fab background paper and just went crazy with the colours then just added a couple of embellishments.
Well that is all from me but be sure to continue hopping over to Fiki's blog.
Enjoy the rest of the hop.
Remember that this adorable image is now available in Elisabeth Bell's Digital collection.

Em Jay!

It is my turn to post a card over at The Digi Bell's (I am actually a day late) (and getting quite late here).. It's school holidays here in Oz and I thought I'd enjoy the first couple of days by getting creative and crafty but a mouse changed all that.... We lost our beloved cat a little while ago and have discovered she was keeping a mice problem at bay. So have spent today cleaning out my son's room where the mice seem to be living..  So I have only just created this card and once again kept it clean and simple (which seems to be my style these days...)
I have used Em Jay from Elisabeth Bell's Digital collection.
I already had the sentiment stamped out so I used that as my background, used pink as my base and added the green colour  for a bit of contrast. Then I just added a few embellishments to finish it off.

Hydrangea Baby!

It is my turn to post over on The Digi Bell's Blog... I saw this gorgeous but simple card on the internet the other week and decided to give it a go... So I created this card using a freebie (Hydrangea Baby) I received when I signed up to Elisabeth Bell's Creative E-book.

To create my card I used a border punch on the side of the white card stock. I then punched out butterflies and stuck them all down flat then added the ribbon. I punched out an extra butterfly to give the card a bit of dimension. Added some liquid pearls to the butterflies and added the adorable Hydrangea Baby image which I coloured in with tria markers, then added some liquid pearls.
I am not to sure what I will use this card for so I have not put a sentiment on it.

Anything Goes at Southern Girls Challenge!

Wow, time is certainly flying... Time to fly into a new challenge at Southern Girls... It is an Anything Goes theme this fortnight and we are sponsored by


We were able to choose an image to create with and I chose Clockwork Dragon 

I am now sure that my colouring is how I envisioned it but it looks ok all the same. I actually used twinkling H20's which I have not used for ages. I created the background using distress inks and stencils. I then added ribbon and the chipboard and metal cogs.  Perfect for a male card.. Something I don't make very often.
I hope that you can join  us this fortnight at Southern Girls challenge
