Penny's Challenge 220

Hi there,

Sorry I'm a bit late, I am having trouble getting back into life after our holiday. It doesn't help that at the end of my trip I had an accident and broke my Collar bone so I have been busy sorting that out. It has made crafting difficult but I will persevere as it is what keeps me sane. :)

Today's card is for this weeks challenge at Penny's. The theme this week is 'Boys and Girls come out to play' and I got to use a cute image from Imagine That! This little guy is super sweet and I love the sentiment that came with it.

Here it is;
My son is turning 7 this year so I thought I would either use this card for his birthday or for one of his friends as I don't seem to have enough boy cards in my stash. I have kept it pretty simple as this is what I could manage and boy cards don't really need to be over the top, they love them bright and fun.

Thanks for dropping by. Don't forget to pop on over to the Penny's blog to check out the rest of the fab projects from the team.
Cheers Nicole

Inky Impressions March Release

Hi there,

I hope you are all well. I am currently enjoying some sun and culture in Phuket Thailand on a much needed family holiday. My 3 are snoring away next to me after an exhausting couple of days. I thought this was a perfect opportunity to share with you the fab new release from Inky Impressions. Nicole has created some wonderful images to work with and they are just in time for Easter. I love the background images this time and the sentiments are fab too. I am still mastering merging images so I have made a creation with each of my images.

Here they are;

I hope you like what I have done with this months images and that you will pop over to the Inky Impressions sites to check out the rest of the new release images, you won't be disappointed. 

Have a lovely week everyone, I am sure I will with plenty of sun, sand, great food and even better company. 

Happy crafting

Penny's Challenge 218

Hi folks,

I have a pretty card for you today using a lovely fairy image from The Stamping Boutique. The theme this week is Ribbon and Bows which was great fun this week as I have been neglecting my bow maker. I am quite pleased with how this card turned out using some gorgeous Kaisercraft papers I got as a freebie and I also tried something new with my colouring, which worked so always a bonus.

Here is my card;
I hope you like her. There are some fab cards over on the blog this week, I would love for you to check them out.

Cheers Nicole

Inky Impressions Dots &/or Stripes

Hi again,

Two cards for me to post today. This time I have my card for this weeks challenge at Inky Impressions. This week it is Dots &/or Stripes which is so easy. I would love to see you enter the challenge this week, I want to see what you have been up to. I have used the super fab Astronaut Lili which I have been waiting to play with for a while, she is so fun.

Here is my card;
I have kept this card pretty simple as I thought the papers and image were the stars. The sentiment is also from Inky Impressions which I have used a couple of times now and I am sure I will use it plenty more times.

Well that's all from me today. I hope you are all doing well and enjoying life. I have a holiday planned shortly so my mood lately is fab. Have a great week everyone.

Cheers Nicole

Penny's Challenge 217

Hi crafty friends,

Today I have a card to show you for this weeks 'Girlie' challenge at Penny's Paper Crafty Challenges. I have another cute Bugaboo image to share with you today. Super cute, I think this will be my daughters birthday card. I have used my Echo Park papers this week and coloured with my Copic's. It wasn't meant to be Christmas colours but hey who says red and green have to be Christmas.

Here is my card;
I used a mixture of punches to make the flowers, I forgot how much fun that is and I used a doily die as a simple decoration (although this particular die was not so simple). I love using all of the papr piece so I have used it for the sentiment as well as the flowers. I hope you like it.

Thanks for dropping by
Cheers Nicole
