Precious bunny

Sorry to post so late in the day but I took the kiddo's to the cinema to see Epic today. It was fab, we all enjoyed it and had a lovely afternoon together. 
Earlier this week I bought myself a hula hoop - I thought it would be a fun way to get some exercise ! Well my youngest son has caught the hula fever and wanted one of his own so we had to stop at the shop on the way home to pick one up. And we had a little hula hooping session when we got home !

Anyway I'm here to show you my DT card for Jellypark - yep it's already time for a new challenge and this time around we want you to be inspired by any of the colour palette's over at 

I used this yummy colour combo as inspiration for my card

And here is my card

I have used the super cute rose bunny digital stamp available here at the jellypark store along with one of the digital sentiments from the new baby sentiment stamp set.
My image is coloured with my pro-markers and prisma pencils and I added a cute little bow to her hair/fur ! That precious bunny is layered onto a kraft doily cut with my cheery lynn english tea party.
I added lemon & pink chiffon criss crossed over my card and a double bow with prima flower, twine & button. The cute l'il butterflies were made with a MS punch.

Here's a close up of some of those details

Don't forget to head over to the jellypark challenge blog and see all the fabulous inspiration from the DT and get all the details that I've forgotten to tell you about ! 

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

Monochrome mania

Another friday rolls around and this week its time for a brand spanking new challenge over at Stampin' for the weekend.
This time around we want to see your monochrome creations so choose a colour and show us a project using shades of that one colour only - of course you may use skin & hair colours on any image and neautrals such as black and white.

So here is my card using the super "Joey" image from our sponsor Saturated Canary 

I obviously chose shades of blue and coloured my image with a mixture of pro-markers and prisma pencils. The cute calendar sentiment in the bottom right corner is from Jellypark here.

Here is a closer look at that super image

A taste of summer :)

OOps ! this should have been posted last Friday - wish there were more hours in the day - or even days in the week !

I chose to play with the super summery flip flops (believe me its the only taste of summer we are getting here in the UK !)

Here's my card

I coloured the super image with my pro-markers and decoupaged the flowers for a bit of extra dimension before adding stickles for a bit of sparkle. DP's are from a freebie set available at two peas in a bucket.

Sunday inspiration :)

Hello I'm back again with a card that I made this afternoon after being inspired by a few challenges.
Firstly I saw the fabulous sketch over at CAS on Sunday, here it is..

I was also inspired by the super recipe swap over at catered crop. This week Linda wants to see embossing on our projects.

I also wanted to play along at CAS-ual Fridays who are celebrating their 2nd birthday AND their 100th challenge with a tic tac toe board
I used the kraft, bling & emboss line but on closer inspection my card also qualifies for the birthday, bling & punches/dies line too ! 

Sorry about the terrible photo I wanted to get my card posted ASAP as I just know that this week will be a busy one and I've made so many cards lately that haven't got round to being posted to the challenges they were made for !! If I get time tomorrow I promise to snap another pic and update it :)

I would also like to add this to the challenge over at A little bit crafty which is currently Kraft it.

Thanks for visiting me today x

Dynamic colour combo :)

Today I want to share a card I made with the fab new colour combo over at Dynamic duos
I loved these super spring colours and couldn't wait to get crafty with them :) 

Here is my card

I used my MFT prima donna petals flower die to create those beautiful blooms also memory box tessatina border to create the "trellis" and MFT fancy flourish die to create the swirls. All I had to add was a sequin to each bloom and a sentiment.

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

One stop craft challenge - Flower power 
Crafty calendar challenge - Blooms & blossoms
Card caravan challenge - Use flowers
The cupboard trilogy - Spring flowers
Country view crafts challenge - How does your garden grow ?
Card crafters circle - Buds, blooms & blossoms
