Delightful Inspiration Challenge

Here is my entry into this week's Delightful Inspiration Challenge. Cardstock is from Stampin Up, background designer paper is a digi download, the tree is paper pieced and the bird is coloured with copics. Unfortunately the colours in the photo didn't turn out very good, it is much brighter in real life. I must confess I'm not the best person with the camera and lately the light hasn't been very good around here.

Dreaming of Summer

Today my card is for entry into Karens Doodles Challenge where the challenge is Animal Friends and Pattie's Creations Challenge where the challenge is Pets. The image is coloured with copics, the cardstock is Stampin Up, the background paper and sentiment is from a free download from scrapgirls.

This image really appealed to me as we have so much snow outside that I think it is going to be the end of April before we see our lawn. I can't wait to be basking in the sun with a drink in hand.

Anniversary Card

Second post of the day.

I was lucky enough to have time today to make a few cards. This one is my entry into the Karen's Doodles Challenge, the image is one that I won last week. The challenge this week is a theme and colour challenge; the theme is 'Love' and the colours are red, pink and white. As I don't need any more valentine's cards I made this one into an anniversary card. The cardstock is from stampin up; the pink background cardstock is embossed with the cuttlebug hearts folder although it is difficult to see in the picture (due to taking pictures at night). The ribbon and red rhinestones are from my stash and the punches I used are all from stampin up.

I like using digi images but the biggest problem I have is finding the right size. Most of the time they seem to fill up the whole card and then you can't see the background papers. Practice makes perfect so I'll keep on trying.

Valentine's Day Card

Today I used a free image from Designed 2 Delight. On the first Friday of each month everyone get's a freebie and if you participate in the challenge you will receive a new image for next week. The image I used was given out only to people who participated in last weeks challenge but you can go here to get this week's freebie if you wish to participate.

For my card I used stampin up cardstock real red, black and whisper white. The designer paper is a freebie I got off the internet but cannot remember where, it has heart images but they are difficult to see in the picture. The card is not one of my favourites but oh well you can't like them all.

I am having fun entering the challenges and I am getting an accumulation of cards. I will be back later to show you more.

Bugaboo Challenge

Here is my entry into this week's Bugaboo Challenge which is to create an ATC. ATC stands for Artist Trading Cards and this is the first one I have ever made. They measure 3 1/2 x 2 1/2. I enjoyed making it but I'm not sure what I will do with it. I may use it on a card. I noticed from Paul's blog here that in the UK there is an active group that trades. Not sure if there is anything like this in the States or Canada, might be fun to participate.

The image I used today is one I am going to be using on a friends 50th birthday card. I think these Stella images are so neat.
