Glittery Fancy and Digital

Can you believe that a fortnight has passed since our last Dream Valley challenge? Nope, neither can I!! But, we have a cracking challenge and it is sooooo easy I suspect there'll be a huge number of entries.....Glitter and Bling! Good, Huh?

I decided that such a challenge gave me the distinct excuse to use my adored Saturated Canary Fancy image. (Originally, it was a freebie, but it should be in Krista's shop at some point soon.) Fancy has been coloured using my precious Polychromo pencils, Stardust Stickles and a bit of Platinum Stickles for the hair "pins".

The papers are Summertime Designs Dryer Lint At Tiffany's. Unusually for fact, VERY unusually for me....I have NOT printed out the papers as I normally do....I actually layered them on my computed and layered the image on my computer and layered the flowery embellishment on the layout too!! I know, I'm actually still in shock myself! I added a little texture with some organza ribbon, which has been threaded underneath the flower embellishment. And a large Blingy Gem at the centre of the flower completed the card.

Here's a close up of the pretty lady herself:

So, what Glittery and Blingy handiwork are you going to produce for Dream Valley? We're sponsored by Sassy Studio Designs too and some of the team have showcased a few of these images beautifully - take a look!

Have a great Sunday, folks!

A New Little Mermaid

This exquisite little mermaid is "Under The Sea"....Isn't she beautiful?  I have coloured her with my hallowed Polychromo pencils, with Stickles in Stardust, Silver and Platinum.  The adorable turtle has had his shell glossed too.

The watery blue and green paper, and the brown one, is First Edition Up, Up & Away.  The front turquoise paper is from Nitwits Joyful Hearts.  I have severed a Cheery Lynn Fanciful Flourish to make some reedy leaves and added some rafia and a couple of punched flowers.  I haven't added a sentiment yet.....I'll wait until I know who will receive it.

I would like to enter the following challenges:
Sugar Bowl - Sketch and "Wet, Wet, Wet" theme
Addicted to Stamps - Animal Friends
The Crafty Pad - Use and Animal
Totally Gorjuss - Bling it On
Cute Card Thursday - Got Glitter

Miss Anya Has a Haircut

For my sister-in-law's birthday, I decided that this image was perfect....especially if I gave her a rather splendid haircut (the original has long hair).

The chic little Miss Anya has been coloured with Polychromo pencils, Stickles and Glossy Accents (on the boot buttons and her rather fashionable handbag).  The monochrome papers are Clare Curd ones and I've used the useful Grunge Tickets and sentiments from LOTV.  The flowers and handbag charm are from my stash.

I would like to enter the following challenges:
Challenges for Everybody - Anything Goes
One Stop Craft Challenge - Anything Goes
Fussy and Fancy - Anything Goes

Happy Monday, folks!

A Halloween Offering

At Dream Valley this fortnight, our theme is.....Halloween!  It can be anything at all as long as it is handmade and follows the Halloween theme.  My dt colleagues have provided a great array, including a batch of monster cakes and a scrap page

Now, Halloween always stumps me, as Louise is generally too busy to be at a party, so there are no invites to make.  And I didn't have very good pictures of last year's outfits to make a scrap page.  So, this year, I have used Digistamp Boutique's Monthly Freebie, Spooky.  I've cut and layered the cat to be a little 3d and included a plastic spider for him to be afraid of. 

Dream Valley are sponsored by Bugaboo Stamps, which is great!  Can't wait to see what you create for us!

Books and Bedhead for Ellie

A VERY last minute entry for Sketch Saturday!  Using Books and Bedhead (again!!), coloured with polychromos.  Or at least it WAS going to be but the collection has closed:0(

But I CAN enter Divas By Design - Anything Goes!

Papers are a mix from what was on my desk.  I've made a few wee books again - love making these - the inside of them has been stamped with Tiny Script or some of the Echo Park Sweet Day text paper!

Sorry for brevity of post, but it's Friday night and I ain't gonna be popular if I keep going!!!!

Have a great weekend:0)

A little Picture

I've been meaning to do this for ages, but always had other things that were more important to do.  But finally, my second picture for Lou has been completed.

I used Krista's gorgeous Books and Bedhead, which suits Lou perfectly - she loves her books and lolling about in bed!!  I've coloured her with Polychromo pencils and a bit of gloss and glitter.

The papers are Echo Park Sweet Day.  I've made a mini book with printed pages, using my Inkylicious Tiny Text stamp and a little diary too.  And the buttons and books and gems have all been secured with my new glue gun, which I LOVE!!  I've left the glass out of the frame so that it's more 3D and touchable.

I would like to enter the following challenges:
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes
Divas By Design - Texture
Totally Gorjuss - Anything Goes

And here is the first picture I made for Lou, although the Tilda now has a GREEN belt, just like Lou!
