Christmas Unicorn

This is my first card as guest DT member for

The theme is Always Anything Goes.

Our Sponsor is Polkadoodles.


I have used one of our sponsors images which is called  Holly Sparkles Christmas Unicorn  and is available here. I really enjoyed colouring her in, well I feel it's a girl anyway
I decided that I wanted to do a different colour scheme for a change, So hence the pink and purple background papers with some grey layers to go with the colours I used on the image.

I have coloured the image with Copic and Tria alcohol pens. The wings have been glittered with stickles Frosted and the fur and has been done with Snow paste and white glitter. The Happy Christmas greeting is stamped and an added glittery bow to finish.

Penguin Fun

I think I have to agree Christmas is on it's way, so the theme for the new challenge at
is Snow Fun

The papers and sentiment are from Stampin up The Sentiment has been punched out using its matching punch and the snowflakes are die cut too. 
I love this cute penguin image but I borrowed him off a friend and don't know where she got him from.

For a change I made a decorative envelope to go with it from coordinating paper.

Please pop over to the challenge blog and see all the inspiration from me fellow DT team mates.

Birthday Bunting

My card for the new Challenge at
which is Always Anything Goes.

This followed on from from doing my last project, the mixed media canvas. I decided to carry on in the same sort of mode and made this quite simple inky birthday card.

I have just used distress inks, stencils and background stamps to layer up the background. Then the bunting and letters are die cut.

It was really quite quick to do But I really liked it a good mans card I feel.

Pop over to the challenge and see the other inspiration from my team mates and if you enter you could win a good prize.

The theme for the new challenge over at

Thats a good excuse for me to get messy again.

I've made a canvas which is just full of texture and colour. The lacy butterfly is a Tattered Lace die.

There are bits of wood, tiny stone chips and corrugated cardboard which has been painted and distessed.

Flowers, leaves and woolly fibres.  I do enjoy getting messy.

Not Scarecrow at all

My card this time for Crafting with an Attitude challenge.
The theme is Anything Goes.

The image is I have used is from Robyns Fetish and is called Scarecrow on a basket.

I had to use a sketch for a design as all my usual ideas up and left. The image is coloured with Polychromos pencils. 

I like this sketch because it uses lots of layers and I love layers. The greeting has been stamped. Plus a lovely little matching bow.

Bunny Love

This is a little late, but we've been away for a couple of days and only just got back.
This is my inspiration for the new challenge at Make my Monday.
The theme is Animal Antics.

I'm not looking forward to winter and cold weather so I decided to bring a bit of spring sunshine to the challenge. It's either late from spring gone or a wish of spring to come.

I've used a Lily of the Valley stamp and coloured it with alcohol pens.

There is a patterned paper background from Basic Gray.
I have added a doily to the top left corner and some daffodils which are really spring flowers.

The sentiment is from Stampin Up. Plus a matching yellow ribbon bow.

Pop over and see the lovely ideas made by my fellow team mates.
