Have a Sunny Day


It's new challenge time at the Classic design Challenge

Our sponsor this month is The Paper Nest Dolls.

This is one of their images called Sunshine Ellie.



I've coloured the image with Polychromo pencils. I've layered her up with some pretty background patterned papers. The balloons are a printed image cut out and layered up. They have been attached with string and a bow. Then just a sentiment to complete.

It's very Pheasant


Would you believe it's August, where is the year going.

SO it's time for a new challenge at Critter Crazy.

our theme is Anything Goes but make a critter the main point on your creations.

This is made with stencils from Sweet Poppy. I love stencils, they are so versatile. You don't even have to use the whole stencil. For this one I've used the stencil  a stencil called Inspire but I've only used the pheasant and it's been coloured with polychromo pencils. The tree branch is also a stencil called Cherry Blossom this has also been coloured with pencils.

A little Christmas


 I thought I would share a Christmas card made using s new Poinsettia stamp from Sweet Poppy Stencils.

I've stamped it 3 times. The first two directly on to the card and the third stamped onto separate card and cut out. They've all been coloured with polychromo pencils, 2 quite lightly and the cut out one more so to stand out.
The verse inside is from a Sweet Poppy Christmas word set called Merry and Bright. To highlight the words I have used a Stencils Holly Backplate to create a frame.

Himalayan Poppy


Well we are now in our summer months here in the UK.

So for the new challenge at the Classic Design challenge I have used a beautiful flower image.

It is from our sponsor this month which is Sheepski Designs
and this is one of their images called Peony.

Our theme is anything goes..



I know it's called Peony but I just saw a poppy and had to colour it like a Himalayan Blue Poppy. It's coloured using polychromo pencils. I kept it quite a simple design with just a dark blue frame. The sentiment is from Sweet Poppy stencils.

Totally tropical Toucan


What a busy day as it's the 1st of the month.

It's new challenge time at the Crafty Catz challenge.

Our sponsor is Sheepski designs and this is one of their images called Tropical.


I've coloured him with polychromo pencils. I wanted to keep him tropical looking so I've added a floral background paper. Then a couple of big fancy silk flowers and some die cut leaves. A birthday sentiment completes the design.
