Cool Blues

Good morning and Happy Choosday everyone! 
This week over at Digi Choosday we are challenging you to make something using Cool Blues. Here is my make
As you can see rather than a card I've made a gift bag. I've used the fabulous DJ image and the DJ and Opera themed paper collection downloads. All these are also available together as the full Work & Play collection 8 download or CD if you prefer. All the embellishments and sentiment are from the same collection. I've lightly distressed all the edges with a distress ink and added some faux stitching.

I'm entering this into the following challenges:
Craft My Life - Anything but a card
Craft your Passion - Anything Goes
Dream Valley - Anything Goes
Imagination Crafts - Anything Goes
Not Just Cards - Anything Goes

Happy Birthday

Hello blogland, todays post is some mid challenge inspiration for the Premium Crafts Brands Challenge blog. The challenge which started last week is "Happy Birthday" and here is my make.
To create this card I used 2 of the roses from the Roses A5 stamp set and stamped them to create the corner. I stamped some of them a few times and decoupaged them up. I then used the frame and sentiment stamp and the roses in bud stamp to create the message section. For the background I used the A4 Butterfly mask and embossed it onto white card.

Romance

Good morning, it's time for another challenge over the We Do Doobadoo Blog and this time it is "Romance" Here is my make:
I have used the Princess/Bride image  and coloured her with my Graph'It Markers. I have used the Dutch Doobadoo Kraft Hearts and the Dutch Doobadoo Laser Art Hearts.



Tattered Lace

Good morning everyone. I'm here today with a make for the Tattered Lace Dies blog.
To create this card I used the foliage embossing folder to create the background on Kraft card, and used a distress ink on the edges. I cut out the Mini Doily, Lacy Border and the leaves from the Midi Blooms in cream card and also distressed the edges with ink. I then stamped the Tatty Twinkles stamp onto cream card and coloured her with Prisma pencils and used the distress ink on the edges.

CASE it

Good morning everyone, I'm here today with some mid challenge inspiration for the Polkadoodles challenge blog. The challenge that started last week is for us to CASE a teamies make from last year. What does that mean I hear you ask, well what it means is we are to find a make by a fellow team member from last year that we love and to take inspiration from it and  make our own version. So I have chosen to CASE a card from the week 47 challenge HERE which was CAS. Now I love all the cards of course but 2 in particular stood out for me, I couldn't get it down to one as they are both very similar and both fab.
The cards are by our lovely ladies Bev 

and Yvonne

And her is my take on it.
I have used the fabby Phone/Texter guy image. He is also available on the Work & Play collection 7 which is available as a download or a CD. He of course is coloured with my Graph'It Markers.

Romantice whites

Good morning everyone, hope you are having a great start to your weekend. I'm here this morning with the years 1st post for We Do Doobadoo. The theme we have set for this week is "Romantic Whites" Here is my make
I have used the Flower Swirl mask  as an embossing folder and simply matted onto a white mat and then a white card. I cut out a flower from an extra piece I embossed and added it with a white brad and used two laser art leaves. I added some ribbon, a bow to finish it off. Simple but elegant I think.
