Sketch time at Incy Wincy


Running a bit late as I was still trying to get all the teachers presents and cards finished up last night and I forgot to schedule this post. I had one card left to do tonight but Aimee has come home to stay that that teacher isn't in school now untill September so no rush to get it finished now lol. 
This weeks challenge at Incy Wincy  is a sketch one the lovely Karen has drawn up this fabby sketch for us to use.
And we are sponsored by Digi Characters by Heather Ellis. I have used this cute image from her to make a thank you card for one of the teachers. I coloured the image with promarkers and gave her a little paper pieced cardigan. The papers are from MME Now & Then Mildred. Which I teamed with some Kraft card.


I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
A Gem of Challenge - Spots & Stripes
My Time To Craft - Paper Piecing

Butterflies at Totally Gorjuss


Wow it's been a long week we have had stock take at work this week so I worked my day off to help get everything ready. As it's Saturday it's time for a new challenge over at Totally Gorjuss which this week is a nice easy one Butterflies. I have been busy making gifts for teachers this week and here is one I made for a friends little boy to give to his teacher. I was asked to incorporate butterflies into the present as that is what his class is called. I bought some plain black memo blocks from work in the sale recently for 50p each ( I think they thought I was mad at work as I bought 15 of the things lol but as a crafter I could see the potential of them!!). I started of by printing a verse onto some white card and then got my distress inks out to play on this one I have used Picked Raspberry and Peacock Feathers. The swirls are the Grunge Flourish stamp from Visible Image. The butterfly is a Martha Stewart punch which I embossed with the Divine Swirls folder in my cuttlebug and then inked.
Here's an angled photo so you can see the sides of the block as well sorry about the path I had a nightmare trying to take this photo's as the sun was really bright and all the others had terrible shadows on them.

Strings & Things At Incy Wincy


Good morning feels like a long time since I posted or crafted it's only been a week but feels much longer first of all I managed to whack my bad hand on the handle of the back door so couldn't do very much with it then on Tuesday morning I woke with a pain in my neck which got worse by the minute so off to the doctors I went and turns out my neck muscles had gone into spasm. Ouch didn't that hurt still aching now but I can at least keep my head upright and move without being in agony.
Onto the real reason I'm here today there is a new challenge over at Incy Wincy which this week is STRINGS & THINGS (ribbon, thread, string, fibre, etc.) and this week we are sponsored by the fantastic The Stamping Chef who very kindly gave the DT an image of their choice to work with I picked (Kn)OWL(edge) but only used half the image as I was having trouble colouring the whole thing.



I used my promarkers to colour him in and added glossy accents to his glasses. The paper is from MME Now & Then Mildred pad which I teamed with some Kraft card. I added some ribbon along the bottom of the card with a computer generated sentiment tag finished with a button and a twine bow. To fill the empty white space in the top right hand corner I added a couple of woodgrain enamel dots.

Make Us Laugh At Incy Wincy


Good morning Monday has flown round again which means it's time for a new challenge at Incy Wincy which this week is Make Us Laugh. We have two fantastic sponsors this week first up is Bugaboo Stamps ( who kindly gave the DT some images to use) and secondly My Creative Classroom.
I have used this fab Crabby Cathy image from Bugaboo to make this wall hanging I can so relate to this image as this has been me at work for the last few weeks somebody in their wisdom decided we needed new computer systems and we have had nothing but problems since. I coloured the image with my promarkers adding glossy accents to the start and heart. The paper is form a Bo Bunny pad I think.

Pink & Green at Totally Gorjuss


Good morning time for a new challenge at Totally Gorjuss where this week we want you to use Pink & Green. My card this week is for one of Aimee's teachers, her class is called Aliens so Aimee thought it would be a good idea to have an alien on the card so she looked through my digi's and found this alien / monster from Pollycraft which she thought was highly funny as he has pants on. I've coloured the image with promarkers adding some glossy accents to his eyes and toenails. The pink paper is from Dovecraft Back To Basics and the green paper is from a MME pad. I added some pink enamel dots under the stamped sentiment and die cut a couple of green stars which I then covered with stickles.

Winged Things At Incy Wincy


Morning all hope you all had a fantastic weekend, we had a lovely day out on Saturday to |Poole Park to watch some friends compete in It's A Wipeout ( imagine silly outfits mixed with lots of inflatable activities and lots of laughs) all  to raise money for the local hospital charity. Today's card is for the new challenge at Incy Wincy where this week we want to see Winged Things on your creations. Our sponsor this week is Scribbles Designs and I have used one of the freebies they regularly give out. I've coloured the butterfly up with my promarkers adding some glossy accents the the body and the head. I cut the top of the front off the card blank using my spellbinders dies. The paper behind is from a MME pad and the sentiment is from Penny Black and stamped in cocoa memento ink.
