If you popped by on Wednesday, you would have seen three circles with Dustin's cute wreaths on them.
Well today I have made them into three Christmas cards for my relatives in Perth, Western Australia.

The image is coloured in with a mixture of copic ciao's and promarkers.  The patterned paper is from Bo Bunny and is called persuasion dot.
I have them dotted around the image and the turquoise papers with my sakura blue star dust pen.

Mikes birthday card

I am such a bad blogger.
Life has been getting n the way of my crafting and I'm so missing my challenges.
Hopefully I can back in the swing back of things and get some challenge cards done this coming week.

Next week is Mikes 33rd birthday and so I made him the this doggy card.

I used a template from The House of Zandra.
I cut the dog aka Max, in cream card and them I sponged gingernut chalk ink around the edges.

Talking of Max, this week both Max and Zara have been to the vets for skin problems which resulted in Max having all his hairs shaved from his neck and Zara having the side of her face shaved.  They both had to have 2 injections, take 2 tablets twice daily and medicated baths every two days.

Thanks for stopping by, and I really appreciate all your lovely comments,
Hope that you drop by again,

Lili of the Valley Challenge 73 and a Blog Hop

Challenge 73 and a Blog Hop

This weeks theme over on the Lili of the Valley challenge blog the theme this week is "Anything Goes", as long as you use a lili of the valley image.  They are also having a blog hop to celebrate the launch of their new stamps which went on sale on Friday.  I must have been one of the first to place my order as I really wanted their new sentiment circles stamps and a few of the new girl images, so my order was placed at about 1am Friday morning.
This morning  I received a lovely parcel from my good friend Marion from Greece.  She sent me some foiled sentiments and some gorgeous charms amongst other things.  
I knew I had to start playing straight away and decided to use them on a wedding card I needed to get done for another good friend who is getting married next Saturday.

The image I have used is called Wedding Couple.  They are coloured with a mix of promarkers and copic ciao's.  The patterned paper is from papermania.  The white glittered card has been punched with my Martha Stewart double loop punch.
The card is finished off with 3 card candy and  Marion's foiled sentiment and charm.

This image is the first one I have coloured with my copic ciao's.  I found them very easy to use and I thought they blend easier than promarkers.
Tomorrow I go on my Introduction to copic ciao's run by Stamps and Memories.
I will hopefully do a full review of my day tomorrow.
Now nip on over to Lili of the Valley and check out their wonderful new stamps,

Tractor Birthday Card

Last week I was asked to make a birthday card for a 2 year old featuring either a tractor or a digger.
My friend kindly lent me the new Stamposaurus tractor stamp that was just perfect.
The tractor is coloured with promarkers and is mounted on red corrugated card and then on red leather effect card that I embossed with the sizzix big dots embossing folder.
The sentiment is wrote with my craft robo using a sakura red stardust pen.
I just finished the card off with red card candy.
Hopefully the second photo with show the texture off better.

I also found out today I won Suzi's 12 days of halloween fat book, which was up for grabs this last weekend during the tiddly inks blog hop.
You can check out her blog here.
