Had a quiet night so decided to have a go at Katie Jane's sketch over at the new Easy Craft Projects Forum. Had fun colouring up Joanna Sheen's Messy Rabbit and Flower Pot Extras with PMs. I've used Papermania cardstock and Paper Cellar Spring paper and some handmade paper coloured with PM for the grass. The sentiment is a G Studio one.
Sharon has set a great sketch for this week with beautiful DT cards for inspiration and the added twist of using green.
I want to get some silicone glue next and have a go at the tutorial over at Just Magnolia as a different approach to 3D as I think the effects are stunning.
Thanks for looking. XXX
Thank you Susie!!!
I am waiting excitedly for the package with the theme and goodies to arrive hopefully tomorrow.
If you haven't been to Susie's blog or the challenge blog or her shop Go Now!!!

Basically, Hannah will offer what YOU choose. Wait for it! You can choose one item which totals up to
£10 (GBP - no more but can be less, depends on what you want!) including any postage fees I will incur buying it for you and if you are the lucky winner I will get the goodies for you. Simple as that! Perhaps there is a stamp you have been hankering after, or maybe a stack of papers or maybe something from hobbycraft to avoid any postage costs to maximise the prize! I know it's not much but hey - we are in a recession and it's a bit of fun! Lol! So here are the rules...
So go check out her blog!!!

I have had a lovely afternoon making this card for Brenda's 'In an English Garden' challenge over at Allsorts and the Just Magnolia 'Friendship' challenge (my first time of entering!).
I enjoyed colouring this Tilda (donated stamped image by Susie Sugar, thanks!) with my PMs. I matted her on to a Funky Fairy Matt which was stamped with a Messy Rabbit fence and a Smirk butterfly. The white card was stamped using a Studio G 'My Friend' stamp in pearlescent lavender (Dew Drop). It then had two papers put on top from the 'Blossoms and Butterflies' Stack and then the matt on top of these. Paper flowers from my stash were added and handmade paper coloured using PM Lime green was torn and added in layers for foreground texture. Lastly the tag was edged and stamped and the butterflies punched.
Have a lovely week all. XXX
