Retro challenge - Buttons and/or Brads at Southern Girls Challenge!

Happy Australia Day. I am having a bit of a slack day hence why my post is late... found a great book to read so read half of it this morning.
Anyway, our new challenge at Southern Girls is Buttons and/or Brads (something I think we all have in our craft stash. I personally have an addiction to Buttons and flowers so this was an easy one for me..
We have two wonderful sponsors this challenge


This was my second attempt at colouring this image, I originally coloured the hair but it looked rubbish so decided to leave it as is. I used twinkling H20's to colour the image (something I don't use very often) I created the paper with some digi papers I have in my digi stash, then I added all the embellishments.
It's a nice easy challenge so be sure to join us at Southern Girls challenge. be sure to pop over to he blog to see what the rest of the DT have created... 

Hearts and Lace or Anything Goes at Elisabeth Bell's World!!

Well hello and welcome to my first post of 2017... I took a month off due to school holidays here in Australia but now I'm back into the swing of things (albeit a little late as usual)
Our first challenge of the year is a nice easy one - Hearts and Lace /Anything Goes....
I used Spring Peeker which was a freebie I recently received from Elisabeth Bell as I am signed up to her Creative E-book.

I coloured Spring Peeker in with tria markers and fussy cut her out. I went through my paper scrap stash and found these squares that were perfect for the challenge. I added the lace down the bottom and I found the heart charm and brad in amongst all my embellishments.
I hope that you can join us this month for our Elisabeth Bell challenge. remember that you can use any Elisabeth Bell image in your crafty stash.
Head on over to the Elisabeth Bell's World Challenge blog for all the challenge and prize details

Anything Goes at Southern Girls Challenge!

I'm a bit late with this post so I apologise.. I'm in holiday mode already I think. I took my boys into the city today to see Santa and check out a Smurf exhibition which was fun.
Anyway, this is our last challenge of the year at Southern Girls Challenge so we have made it an easy one - Anything Goes. Our sponsor is

I coloured up 3 Little Christmas Girls from All Dressed Up with tria mrkers and added some rock candy stickles to the santa hat. I decided to go with the non traditional colours for this image as I love the Kaisercraft paper I bought quite a number of years ago. Not sure where I got the charms from (perhaps a craft show ) but I do love them. I used a die for the music notes then just added some little buttons... This will be my last post before Christmas so I would like to wish you all a very Safe and Happy Christmas. Thanks for continuing to follow my blog when at times I don't do much.. I am hoping to be a better blogger next year but let's just see how I go.. lol
            I hope you can join us at SGC for our final challenge of the year.

Elisabeth Bell's Digital release and December Blog Hop

It is time for our final Blog Hop of the year at The Digi Bell's and we have done something a little different this time.. Before I share what I have created let''s just make sure you are in the right place. YOu should have arrived here from Linda's Blog. If you didn't you may want to head back to The Digi Bell's Blog to see where you should be.
So please welcome

Home Baked Christmas

So as you know we are sharing recipe ideas and this is mine

I made this quite late last night so did not notice through bleary eyes the ingredients list is not perfectly inline... So I apologise. I must confess that this is not a recipe I have tried yet but I really want to so thought if I made a recipe card I would :)  Edited to say The cocoa should have been omitted and Your Inspiration at Home chocolate raspberry Truffle powder added instead..

Home baked Christmas was once a Whiff of Joy stamp but is now available from Elisabeth Bell's Digital collection.
It is time to go and check out the next yummy recipe at our Guest Designers blog Karina.
Remember if you get lost head on back to The Digi Bell's Blog.

Always Anything Goes at Craft Your Passion!

It is time for a new challenge at Craft Your Passion and this week our sponsor is
Crafty Sentiments Designs

I haven't joined in many challenges lately at CYP for various reasons so I decided to create two cards for this challenge as it's my last for the year.

For both cards I coloured the images in with tria markers, twinkling H20's and glitter. I used embossing on both cards, inked around the images, then added all the embellishments.. 
I hope that you can join us this week at CYP.

Christmas Time at Elisabeth Bell's World!

We are only a month out from Christmas, can you believe it... And that time will no doubt fly by.
It is time for a new challenge at Elisabeth Bell's World and because it is nearly Christmas we have decided to combine Nov and December challenges so you have 2 months to enter....

Due to only just getting a printer this card was made fairly quickly so it is CAS. Elisabeth Bell recently sent this image out Gingerbread Man corner as a freebie (because I have signed up to her Free Creative E-book. So I decided to create a frame with the image, I coloured it with tria markers and glitter pens then just added the sentiment.
I hope that you will join us for our extended challenge.

Anything Goes at Southern Girls Challenge!

Wow, I can't believe it's been a month not posting here... I have not had a printer for the last month so I have not done a lot of crafting. To be honest it has been nice to have a bit of a break... I do love crating but I have felt a bit overwhelmed this year working full time and trying to keep up with DT commitments.. But I still love doing what I do so I have a new system in place for next year so that I can keep on top of things..
So it is time for a new challenge at Southern Girls Challenge and it's a nice easy theme.. Anything Goes. Our sponsors this week are

Due to having no printer I could not use a sponsors image so I created a card without an image

I created the background with colour bursts, embossing powder, stencils and ink.. I coloured white flowers with colour bursts also and spritzed them with glitter. I added the pin then embossed the chipboard DREAM.
 I hope that you can join us this fortnight at SGC
