Butterfly trails

The new challenge over at stampin' for the weekend is a favourite :) 
We want you to use your die cuts and/or punches.

I used not only the die cut butterflies but I also die cut a scrap piece of card with 3 apertures and inked through it to create the inked background circles.

Simple !

Don't forget to check out all the fantastic DT inspiration over at the SFTW challenge blog and get all the details for the challenge.
Hope you'll play along and you could be in with the chance to win a surprise package !!!!

Thanks for stopping by - hope you get some crafty time today x

Questionable morals ?!

This week over at Jellypark Friends we have a new release which I know will be used lots on my friends cards and gifts this year !

Here it is 

Isn't she fab ?! You can find her along with the super sentiment together at the jellypark store here.

I made another bottle tag - well it just seemed like the perfect platform for that fun digi !

I coloured it with firstly my pro-markers and added some shading with my prisma pencils. The swirls were added afterwards with an age old stamp which hasn't seen the light of day for quite some time - I was very pleased to re-discover it :) The texture you can see on the jacket is a fine glitter but it didn't photograph very well - it is super sparkly IRL :)

Don't forget to hop on over to the Jellypark challenge blog to check out all the DT  inspiration and also the new challenge.

I would like to add my card to the following challenges;

Raise the bar - Friendship (last month of challenges - boo hoo :( x)
Addicted to stamps - Anything goes
Crafts and me - Bling it up 
Crafty creations challenges - No patterned paper
Craft room challenge - So sentimental
Oldie but a goodie - Make it girly

Thanks so much for visiting me today x

Choccie treat :)

This week at Stampin' for the weekend our challenge theme is 


We are lucky enough to be sponsored by Saturated canary so all our DT cards feature one of their  fantastic images :)

I used SC's "springtime" image available at the store here. And coloured it with a mixture of prisma and polychromo pencils. It's the first time I have used the polychromos so please bear with me while I adapt to them !

The DP's I used are from K & Co Berry sweet - a super ancient paper stack that I rediscovered recently at the bottom of a drawer ! That great sentiment is from the Wax fruit company available here.

With such a sweet sentiment I knew I wanted to make this card into more of a gift so I added a little pocket with some choccy inside !

I was visiting a friend at the weekend and took this little gift for her - she was so very pleased with it and that made my day brighter too :)

I hope you'll play along with us at Stampin' for the weekend - don't forget to check out all the other fab DT inspiration too.

I would like to add my card to the following challenges;

Cute card Thursday - Use butterflies
Delightful challenges - Use circles
Joanna Sheen - Spring into spring 
Lacy sunshine challenge - Spring fever

Thanks for visiting today :)

Come on spring - we're waiting !

Here is my card featuring one of the super stamps available exclusively to Jellypark members - if you're not enrolled yet check out all the details here

This super sweet image really makes me think about the book wind in the willows - a fabulous tale which I can't wait to read with my own children. We are currently on the wizard of Oz but I think this will be next.

I coloured that sweet image with prisma pencils and loaded the card with lots of spring colours and embellishments. The DP's are from the DCWV Nana's kids stack.
