Flutterby Fairy - Polkadoodles Challenge

Fairies were our Challenge this week.  So I stamped my flutterby fairy - Maggie available from and coloured her in with my Graph'it markers. Stamped the wings on card and then vellum and coloured them and of course added a little glitter.  I picked one of the flowers from the Bonbon Belle CD Rom from Polkadoodles and enlarged it, cut it out and popped Maggie on to it. Stamped and coloured the toadstool. Matted and layered Maggie and the flower onto some butterfly paper and put it onto a Kraft cardstock card.  There she is, how cute!

Nikky is offering people a FREE Angleberry digi to use in this weeks challenge which they need to email her for by Wednesday 5th September. People will be sent one of the images so it's not necesary for them to pick on before emailing. However to enter the challenge this week they MUST use that digi! First prize winner will win a mega prize bundle worth £50 .... !

Lil Miss Muffet with Red Hair

Today, I wanted to enter the Graph'it Markers Challenge - Red Hair, so I thought this image would be great to do that on.  It is an digi image from Little Miss Muffet range, so I coloured her hair with Graph'it and Promarkers, the face and the dress was with the Graph'its.  I really need to get more colours in my collection.  I matted her on a paper which is from the Halloween Collection of digis from, then matted that on to a Grand Nestability added a flower vine and a little picket fence and my card was complete.

I have entered her into the following challenges :

Boo to you!!!!!

This Halloween scene was made by taking the digi images into my Serif Programme and putting the
scene together.  When I was happy how it looked I then printed it out and coloured it using Promarkers and Graph'it markers. I added some googly eyes to Mr. Twit Twoo and decoupaged Frankie the Ghost head giving it a 3D look.  I made the background using two colours from my promarkers. I am quite happy how this has turned out, seeing it was my first attempt using my Serif programme.

This image however is probably my favourite out of them all.  Miss Fancy Pants, I coloured in using Promarkers and Graph'it markers. Added a backing paper from the digi downloads available from , some webbing, sentiments and a bat made from the webbing, I tied a knot and then added some googly eyes.

Witchy Woo and Batty Too

I love these images from I have coloured my little witch and batty using my Graph'it markers. The background paper is from the Halloween Bundles that are available at  Polkadoodles. I wrapped some black mesh around the card and adhered batty and my little witch to it.
Made a moon out of Trick or Treat sentiment and that is it for now.  More to come, busy colouring and putting the cards together. See you soon xx

Jackson's Pirate Chest

Good Morning All - Yesterday, a little boy aged 4 came into my store and told me he had a Pirate Badge! I asked him if he had a Treasure Chest, he shook his head and said no.  I then asked him if
he would like me to make him a Treasure Chest to put all his treasures in and he said Yes Please.
So last night, I took home an empty cigar box from the shop and set too to make his treasure chest.
This is how it turned out - I hope he likes it!

Little Miss Muffet - Trick or Treat Frankie

Hello, I have purchased another Little Miss Muffet digi stamp, isn't he a cutie?  I coloured him with my Promarkers and Graph'it Markers and used my spider web stamp from Stampin Up and my spiders from Close to my Heart stamps and the little doggie with a bag on his head is from Inkadinkadoo.  I decided to do an easel card in kraft card stock and used some papers from my crafty stash for the background. Punched out a spiders web using a Martha Stewart punch and stamped a sentiment from my Inkadinkadoo stamp set.

Flatfriends Challenge

Hi everyone.  This month's challenge is Colour Combinations - Pink Grey and Black.  What a lovely combo. I printed out one of Emma's Summer Digis and coloured her with my Graph'it markers in grey and pink. I then die cut the image with a scallop oval and used my pan pastels to soften the edges, matted her on grey and then black.  Added a bow and paper flowers and pearls. Very sophisticated I think.
