Creative Card Crew - "Sparkle and Shine" xxx

Hey my lovely bloggers.
Its my first card made for Creative Card Crew, I'm so excited hee! This week the theme is "Sparkle and Shine" and our sponsor is the fab Digi Shack. I used the cute wee Coffee Dog image, so cute hee!

I used my yummy new Dovecraft "Piece of Cake" papers layered with some pale pink papers from my Large Costco kit. I added some of my gemstones scraps run through my Sizzix for embossed dots. Coloured the wee image with my promakers, added gloss to the nose and mug. Finished with loads of glitter and some wee buttons from my stash.

I hope you will join us this week and get some "sparkle" on your creations! Check out my lovely Dt's creations for more inspiration and join in the fun this week!

CCM Spotlight xxx

Hi there lovelies, its time for another challenge over on Crafty Cardmakers. Now this week we want to see your "Spotlight" cards!
Hmmm, I hear some of you say but their really simple when you know what they are! Thanks to my fellow Dt's, I found some fab inspiration and knew what they were! Basically its a normal image left with out colour and a certain part or parts just coloured ie a "spotlight"! Hope that makes sense??

This is my wee take on the theme. I used my Papermaina Summer Bloom papers layered with dark green card form the Papermill. Stamped my rose stamp twice (it was in the docraft goody bag a while back), coloured one with my Promarkers and left the other plain. Made wee "spotlights" with my nesties layered with the same dark green card! Added a wee pounced butterfly with gems and finished with a wee sentiment!

Hope you like my wee take on a "Spotlight" card and it gives you the encouragement to try something new! Check out the other Dt's for more inspiration and hopefully join in our wee challenge!

Good morning lovely people, well its another challenge over on LMLC. This week we want to see your layouts with "Simplicity"! What do you think off with a simple layout? One picture?? plain background?? Lets us see your take on our "Simplicity" theme!

For me simplicity is one picture and mostly white/block colour background! Nothing fussy so you can really just see the picture in all its glory hee!

I used my plain card from the papermill and my Papermania pattern papers to make my wee layout! Picking the colour from my hair for the colour theme itself. used my Martha Stewart punches added some ribbon, doodlebug letters and gems from my stash.

This wee charm is from my big Costco kit!
