A Little Bit Naughty!!!

Truely Scrumptious had a great sketch this week that I followed, image is one of Kenny K's more "naughty" images, coloured with my copics and spica pen for some shine. DP is Kaisercraft "Shaken Not Stirred", roses are Wild Orchid, bling is Kaisercraft and ribon is from my stash. I created this for the following:

Fab N Funky - 3DP, 2 embellishments, 1 image (3 sheets of Shaken Not Stirred, rhinestones and roses and my Kenny K image)
Gingersnap - Red and Black (main colours in DP and image)
Stars and Stamps - (no glitter) punch, ribbon, emboss (only spica pen...but I don't count that as glitter, SU corners punch, black ribbon, I embossed the top DP with cuttlebug Dots)
Charisma Cardz - Hot, Hot, Hot (can't get much hotter than this!!!)

That's it from me, back to work tomorrow, had an exhausting day, but found out I am going to be a Aunty again, can't wait!!!

Girls Rock!!!

Over at Kenny K's they have a great sketch which I followed for this card, I used Kenny K's "All That" Digi Image and coloured her with copics and a little clear spica pen. Dp is Bo Bunny "Peacock Lane", I have covered the oval and MS lace border punch with pearls from Inky Impressions, flowers are all from prima (also used the spica pen on them) and I got DH to sew around the card for me in a zig zag stitch.
I also created this for the following challenges:
Digi Doodle Shop - Distressing (I distressed the paper edges and used Milled Lavender around image and text)
Pixie Dust - Stitching (DH is very handy with the sewing machine)
Delightful Challenges - Using pearls and lace (pearls everywhere and punch is MS Lace Border)
Must fly, off to the library so Narny can choose us both goods books (shes better at it than I am).

It's Got To be....Sookie!!!

I love this image from Tickled Pink Stamps, as soon as I saw the name, I knew I had to have her (Sookie just like my beloved Scottish Foldy). Sookie is coloured with my copics and has a little stickles added to various parts of her outfit and jewellery.
The sketch is from Cards and Things, DP is Papermania "Naughty or Nice", ribbon is from my stash, stars are actually from an old necklace, sentiment is
Inky Impressions and behind the image is the cover of a CD stack (it's clear plastic). I also created this for the following challenges:
Creative Card Crew - Sparkle and Shine (sparkly stars, stickles on Sookie, shiny ribbon)
KAH Wink E Dink - Birthday Card (this is for The Wah's little friends 11th birthday)
Papertake Weekly - 3 of something, 2 of another, 1 of another (3 layers on the ribbony bows, 2 DP, 1 clear plastic CD)
Penny's Paper Crafty - Pink and Green (main image is pink and green...including the hair)
Stamp With Fun - card for a girl (well, I don't think any of Zak's friends would appreciate this LOL).
So thats all from me tonight, kids have been off school all week, but hopefully will go tomorrow so I have time to create.

Tis the Season for a Helping Hand!!!

Over at Sundays with Crissy the challenge is Your Favourite Time of Year. I am constantly amazed that I can work in retail throughout the christmas madness and it's still my favourite time of year!!!
I followed the sketch over at Fussy and Fancy Friday, image of course is Crissy Armstrong coloured with my copics, DP is Bo Bunny "Tis the Season", flowers are also Bo Bunny "Tis the Season", I have added stickles to everything, raindrops, pearls, "fluffy balls" ribbon and text is a SU stamp. I am also entering the following challenges:
Papertake Weekly - Something Old, New, Borrowed, Blue (my old is the raindrops that I have had forever, new is my white pearl brad in the flower, borrowed is Neekys backward style of card - yup Narny went to open it and it opens upside down which is a classis Neeky cardmaking trait, blue is my blue pearls)
Cute Card Thursday - Trees or Leaves (my christmas tree)
Digi Doodle Shop - Flowers (can't get much bigger than this little ole Bo Bunny number)

So thats all from me, I have been busy creating a card for Neekys soccer coach and am so impressed with our combined talents that I am going to whip up a few spares for me!

I always find it hard to get my mojo going again after a card making break, and this time was no exception. Work has finally setttled and I found some time tonight to create this cute little boys card. I followed the sketch over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday. The image is Whoopsie Daisy (coloured with my old faithful copics), I used the colours green and blue to enter the Whoopsie Daisy Challenge. DP is My Minds Eye "Bohemia", brads and leather are from my stash, sentiment I just "whipped Up", punches are SU and CM. I am also entering this in the Paperplay Challenge - Bon Voyage.

Hope you enjoy, hopefully I will have more tomorrow!!!
