This weeks challenge over on the new challenge blog, Just Magnolia, was to use the colours green and pink. I've never used this colour combo before, but I think they look nice together. I used my sketch again to arrange it all and coloured the image with ProMarkers. The flowers are punched with different sized retro flower punches.

There's a great sketch this week over on Friday Sketchers. I'd coloured this image a while ago, then changed my mind about using it on the card at the time, as I couldn't match up the papers the way I wanted. Well now I've got more papers I decided to use it for this sketch. I coloured her with ProMarkers (I think....lol).

Sharon runs a weekly sketch challenge over in the group Lets Get Stamping on Craft Bubble. She asked for 2 people to be guest designers for 2 weeks, while she took a holiday. I was one of the lucky ones to be picked, along with Katie. Katie hosted a great sketch challenge last week and this week it's my turn. This is my sketch, I asked for some embossing to be included and also a charm on the project. I also asked for a matching book mark to be made too.
This is my card and book mark. The image is a stamp from the Daisy & Dandylion collection, aren't they cute? and the papers are from Pink Petticoat.

Just Magnolia is a new challenge blog, this is it's first week and there's a great sketch for the challenge (I love them). Pop over to the blog and have a lookie. I coloured the image with ProMarkers. The BP is from a 12x12 pad called Laundry Linen, I can't remember who it's by, I can check if anyone wants to know.

This is my card for this weeks fun challenge for Let's Get Stamping group over on Craft Bubble. We usually have a sketch to work to, but this week we had to take inspiration from the card posted by Sharon and also show the use of a punch. The image is from Pink Petticoat coloured with Promarkers. I also added glitter to the bubbles.

It's such a long time since I've entered the challenges over on House Mouse. This is mainly because I don't have many of these images. But this weeks challenge is something sweet and I thought this lovely strawberry image fits perfectly. This card is also for the Design Team call over on Cute Daisy May I coloured the image with distress inks.

There's a really lovely sketch this week over on Sketch Saturday, it's one I'll definately use again. The stamped image is a Penny Black stamp. My niece bought it at a craft fair last week and kindly let me stamp up some images, isn't it cute. I coloured it with ProMarkers.
There's another lovely sketch over on Friday Sketchers. I needed to make a card for a very good family friend and thought I'd use this stamp, as it's not one I use very much, it takes ages to colour, but it's worth it. The image is coloured with distress inks.
