Creative Moments challenge – Make it sparkle

This week’s challenge is sponsored by Emerald Fairies and what a perfct digi company for a Make it sparkle challenge!  I have used Binki and Buzz. I have used a new technique for me and die cut the image with a few elements cut out manually to over lap the frame made by the mat.  The backing paper is by Jayne Nestorenko and is part of the Cute Companions range.  I finished with a congratulations sentiment, thinking this would make a great alternative card for passing a driving test.


I am entering these challenges today:

I have made a musical card for today’s project.  The Digistamp is from The Paper Shelter, and is called Cecilia.  I have coloured her using my ever-trusty Promarkers, using the following colours:
Hair: Buttercup, Mustard, Sandstone, Cocoa
Skin: Sunkissed Pink, Blush
Dress: Pear Green, Moss
‘Cello: Walnut, Rosewood, Terracotta, Honeycomb

The papers I have used are called Prima Botanical and were free a while ago with the magazine, Simply Cards and Papercraft.  The sentiment stamp was free from the same magazine and is stamped onto a fussy-cut segment from the paper pad.

I cut the music from a Sizzix decorative strip – my Sizzix dies are rather neglected since I bought my Grand Calibur, but still have so much to offer.

Funky New baby card

Hello, I am late blogging today – will do this then I need to get to bed!

Today’s card is inspired by the 365 challenge blog which has a theme of someting going on in the world at the moment.

I immediately thought of the speculation over the sex of Kate and Will’s baby.  Personally I think they should be allowed to get on with it with having tabloid newspapers guessing over he colour of their pram, but I thought a patriotic, non-traditional new baby card would be perfect!

The digi stamp is from Pollycraft and is called ‘family’.

So here it is:


I will enter My card into the following challenges: – capturing the moment – letter B (baby) – use a digital image – baby

I would love to read any comments, thanks for looking,
