I believe - do you???

Yes - I know I am a bad blogger at the moment but life has a way of making it impossible to get some quality crafting time in so I just manage to do a little here and there.
This card has been made for several challenges. I used the gorgeous fairy Finna illustrated by Mo Manning - I adore her images. She has been coloured using my Prisma pencils and blender. The wings have been covered with a subtle glitter glue. Matted and layered her on a mixture of papers and finally added a Prima flower with a brad.

Dare you 2 digistamp #38

Today is my son's 14th birthday and I made this card for him earlier in the week. I have not been able to post it or even enter it into any challenges as I was worried he might see (not that he is in the slightest interested in my card making lol). So I will enter it into Dare U 2 Digi Stamp challenge which this week is "One for the boys".
I have used Mo Mannings Video Boy which basically illustrates atleast half the teenage boy population and coloured him with my Prisma pencils. I then matted and layered using papers from my stash. I think my son liked it and I hope you will too.

A totally new challenge for me to enter at The Townscrapper. Some talented ladies in the DT team and a super sketch for this week. I have again used one of the cute images my friend sent me :). Coloured her with Prisma Pencils and blender and put a little glitter glue on the wings. She looks really sweet I think.

Sketch Saturday #103

It's Monday morning and I am finally getting some ME-time. The boys are at school and princess has gone to Playgroup so I am enjoying the peace and quiet to do a little blogging.
During all the hectic activities of the week-end I managed to make a card for the challenge at Sketch Saturday. I really like this sketch with it's layers. I used a sweet image a kind friend sent me and coloured her with my Prisma Colours. Not sure if you can see it but I put a little glitter glue on the key. The embellishments are hand made.

Simon Says Stamps - Sketch

Good morning all!!! THE SUN IS SHINING :)
Am up early as my daughter woke me by jumping all over my bed shouting she wants to go to the park lol. She has now sitting watching TV and having cereal so I thought I might just post this card which I made for Simon Says Stamps challenge. They have a lovely sketch and the optional extra to use a Whiff of Joy stamp. Well, I am way behind with making my xmas cards for this year so here is one with the cheeky Charlie. As always I have coloured him using my Prisma pencils and blender. Hope you like it!

Sassy Cheryl Challenge - A sketch

There are so many talented illustrators who are making their work available to us crafters and Sassy Cheryl is one of my favorites. Her drawings are funny and quirky and I like that. She also has a challenge blog which runs every Tuesday with a fabulous price. The challenge this week is a super sketch and I have used this super bear. I think he was a freebie available only to her PCP members. Isn't he super! I have coloured him with my Prisma pencils and blender.

1 card for 3 challenges

Don't usually make a card that would cover different challenges but there are so many good challenges out there that there aren't enough hours to make a card for each of them. And with 3 kids it's even more difficult hehe.
I made this card following the sketch over at Stamp with fun. The bow, buttons and bling is the challenge at Simon Says who also wanted to see a few Greeting Farm images. Everybody Art challenge want a Song title and as my daughter is currently watching Ariel non-stop I keep humming "Under the Sea".
I used this lovely Mermaid image from The Greeting Farm and coloured her using Prisma pencils and blender. Her tail is covered with glitter glue to make it more "Fish-like". Hope you like her
