Everyone's Favourite Challenge...

Yes this week the challenge at Sentimental Sundays is "Anything Goes" (+ a sentiment) & we have a fab sponsor - Sweet Pea Stamps & the DT were lucky enough to chose an image to work with, it was a hard choice but I decided (eventually) on Conie Fong's Spring Flowers digi which I watercoloured using Sakura Tiara (sparkle) pens & a water brush (the skin, hair & basket were coloured using ProMarkers).  It was a bit hit & miss but on the whole I'm quite pleased with the result :o)  The paper is Riverbank Revels by Helz Cuppleditch (Trimcraft) which has a lovely texture to it, I punched, inked & glittered a butterfly & finished off with lace, flowers, greeting & pearls.

The challenges:
Emerald Faeries - It's All About Bling
CCC Digi Creations - Digi/Flowers
Crafty Boots - Butterflies 
Just Inspirational - Sparkle
Inspiration Destination - Anything Goes
Crafting For All Seasons - Things With Wings
Ladybug Crafts - Say It With Flowers
Fussy & Fancy - Things With Wings
Allsorts - Lace & Pearls
Country View Crafts - Use Something New To You (flowers, paper, lace)
The Sisterhood of Crafters - Use Your New Stash (as above) 
Freshly Brewed - Favourites (butterflies, flowers, lace pearls)

I hope you're having a lovely weekend & can find some time to craft & join our challenge :o) xx

It's Sunday....(again, how did that happen!)

 So it's time for another challenge from Sentimental Sundays & this week it's "New Beginnings" (+ a sentiment) & we are sponsored by Bugaboo & there is the chance to win some fab images :o)  My card this time is a bit different, I used scraps of fabric & my sewing machine to make a little house design with button windows and door.  With just an accent of Kraft card & a stamped greeting. I hope you can join us & I always look forward to seeing what wonderful designs you come up with :D

The challenges:
Crafty Calender - What's New
Papertake - It's All New
Fab 'n' Funky - Something New
The Male Room - New Beginnings
Simon Says - It's A Guy Thing
Kitty Bee - Scraps
Crafty Catz - New Beginnings

I hope you're having a great weekend & it's not going as fast as mine.  I've done some baking & made an apple crumble which I'm now going to eat with some creme fraiché & a cup of tea & watch a movie with hubby :o) (the perfect way to spend a winters afternoon).

Just a Quickie...

Many of you know there have been changes in the EU VAT rules that caused a lot of fabulous designers of digital images to stop trading.  This happened to one of my very favourites Jellypark but luckily Claire has been able to open her digital shop again HERE.  As you will see there are some gorgeous designs including "The Office Bundle".  (Oooh & don't forget to join the Jellypark Facebook page too & keep up-to-date with all things Jellypark :o)

I'm Back!

Hello & Happy New Year everyone (hope I'm not too late to say that).  I hope you all had a very happy Christmas as I did :)  I'm really sorry I wasn't around much the latter part of last year but I'm determined to do better this year, I really missed blogging & visiting your fab blogs.  I managed to do some crafting though not as much as I would like & I just couldn't find time to keep up my blog.  I was lucky enough to only lose 1 follower so thank you guys for sticking with me, I'm looking forward to visiting your blogs again :o)

So to start this year off we have a new challenge at Sentimental Sundays & the theme is "Winter Sparkle" (with a sentiment) & our sponsor is our very own Sandy from Scribbles Designs & I used her Let it Snowmen image which I water coloured with Sakura glitter pens (though you can't see the sparkle in the photo).  I made an ATC with a little envelope to go with it (both have some Glamour Dust added too).  I hope you can join us & why not check out the other DT members creations for more inspiration.

The challenges:
Fairytale - Snow
Frosted Designs - White as a Snowflake
Sisterhood of the Snarky Stampers -  W for Wow it's Cold
Di's Digis - Winter
Crafty Hazelnuts - Inspired by Christmas Carol or Song
Order of the Opus Gluei - Anything but a Card
Quirky Crafts - Clean and Simple
CAS on Sunday - Christmas
Electic Ellapu - (Purple Team) Anything but a Card

It's soo lovely to be back :o)  Thanks for looking & have a wonderful week.
