DDH - Floral Perfume

I decided to have a play with this image (which is a set) called Floral Perfume from Digi Design House. The shading on the bottle and rose make it super easy to colour. Don't forget the challenge we have running over at DDH challenge blog " Paper Piecing", jump on over and give it a go.

2 posts in one day!

Yep,,, here's another card to share by combining a sketch over at Anyone for Anya? and by following an inspiration photo at Sketchy Colors of blue and white.
Now... not that I really want to point it out, but I feel the need to share .. I buggered up majorly with this card.... I grabbed paper that has swirls and snowflakes on it... I think my Anya maybe a tad under dressed!

Creative weekend!

Well I baked all this morning, chatted to girls over at debs Creations ning group, now in craft room with Bee colouring. I decided to make an easel card and use one of the many neglected images I keep rambling on about.

My favourite colours - Chocolate / Blue

Its Friday arvo here and its so peaceful (which isn't normal for my house!) Hubby at work, stat holiday for me, and one child down.... ahhh bliss.
Anyway, enough rambling. My very good kind blogging friend Jill have been spoiling me silly and sent me a package with this Sugar Nellie Stamp in it (which never really appealed to me to get.), and I can now say I am in love with these images!.. Seriously, if you aren't a confident colourer.. then get these images, the shading is all done for you and I reckon they are pretty much fool proof! Also apart from this and many many other goodies, Jill put in my now new favourite ever paper pad...GCD Studios - Ella Blue collection pack....OMG.. the colours are perfect... my favourite... I love you Jill!!!!
Geez rambling again... if you are still reading this... I made this card for ...
The Sugar Bowl - Sketch and buttons
Cupcake Challenge - Lots of layers

DDH - Paper Piecing

Anyone who knows me, knows I LOVE to paper piece my projects! When I used to run classes.. you would hear moans and groans every time the ladies found out they had to cut out images! So... when this fortnights challenge for Digi Design House was paper piecing, I hunted out an image that I wanted to cut up.... I think this image called Promise Me Bear fitted the bill perfectly! Head on over and join us ... don't miss your chance to win a free digi set... and remember ... you don't have to use a DDH image to enter (although it would be nice).
