I forgot colouring competition and collaboration over on Face Book

Have you seen the collaboration and colouring competion going over on Face book between Mo's Digital Pencil and Passionate Paper Creations.  You can get this fab I Forgot image from Mo here for only $1 while the competition is going on over this weekend  - click the  link here to take you to the  competition!

I used my Promarkers to colour my image using Petrol Green, Twilight Sky, Grey Green and Tea Green taking my colour scheme from these fab First Edition Animal Antics papers. 
As you can see I've gone for a baby card with this image, perfect, I think!  Lots of Marianne dies and products  too as follows:
Baby sentiment and Diaper pin - LR0217
Stork Delivey - COL1381
Stitched Circle Die - CR1248
Basic Round Circle Die Set CR1331
The teeny safety pins are also from Marianne Designs.

I also used a really cute animal parade die from Die-versions and a little elephant charm that I found when I was looking for something else entirely!!
Do check out the rest of the fab inspirational makes from Mo's  DT members and then come and join in yourself!!

August Blog Hop at Mo's Digital Pencil - Teenagers is our theme.

We're hopping today at Mo's Dream Team and our theme of Teenagers has been chosen by our lovely Anneke which is also where you should  have started from.  Otherwise you should have hopped over to me from Gretha's blog where she has shared something amazing with you I'm sure!
For my teen card I've used Teen Witch dreaming of her latest crush instead of sweeping up those cobwebs!! You can find Teen Witch here and her dreamboat, Come Hither, here.
My papers are from a Recollections 12x12 pad and the frame is cut with a Spellbinders die, and then I used lots of Memory Box spider's web dies and a Lili of the Valley sentiment.
A couple of close ups of Teen Witch and her love interest!

And a sideways view! 
Your next stop on the hop is over to my fab friend, Debby's blog - don't forget to leave a comment on each of the team posts as you could win a lovely $5 voucher to spend online in Mo's Digital Pencil. The full list of the hop is below should you need it!

Happy Hopping.

PFP and a fab sketch

Really running behind today, sorry!  This is my card for our new challenge over at Passion for Promarkers and we have a brilliant sketch for you this week, designed by our very own Lou!
Challenge 310 - sketch
I've wanted to use this Mo Manning image, After The Fall, for ages as I just love Humpty Dumpty!!  Lucky for me, he fitted into Lou's sketch perfectly!  Before the Fall is also available here!

I decided that he was a duck egg which fitted the colours of my chosen papers by Fancy Pants perfectly!  I've also used some wonderful dies from Marianne Designs to help Humpty get better, as follows:
Plasters from Hospital set - LR0362 - of course they had to blue for Humpty!
Gladstone Bag from Doctors set - LR0363 - My tip is to use these with white core card, so that you can sand the die cuts to see the definition of the dies.
Bricks - DF3403 - Die and embossing folder set
Get Well Soon Die - CR1318
Heart in corner - from Project NL Blue and Grey set.

The ric rac and brad is from stash

We are very lucky to have 2 generous sponsors this week.  Firstly we have DigiStamp Boutique who are offering one lucky winner a £10.00 voucher to spend in the online store.

A Christmas Fawn

We have had two glorious days up here in the Lake District which was perfect for a visit from my OH's cousin, Paul and his family.  So lovely to see them and enjoy an afternoon in the garden with them.
Today is wet and cold, so better weather for crafting and making Christmas cards!  
I made this with an image called Young Deer from a new company selling digi images for us crafters, Fabrika Fantasy - just click on the link to visit their site.
I love this deer image with the rather cheeky expression, and thought these Papers from Marianne Designs suited him perfectly. My full list of Marianne products are shown after the next image.

Pretty Paper Blocs by Eline's - Let it Snow
Mushrooms Dies - New out and absolutely love them! -  LR0372
Tiny's Pinetrees - CR1287
Tiny's Winter Village - CR1288
Icicle Border - LR0135
The sentiment is from Lili of the Valley and the label is from Spellbinders, with everything else from stash.
Christmas is coming and are you ready?!!!
Hugs, Juliexx

A rejected 50th!!

I love this slightly bemused looking image from Mo's Digital Pencil - he's called Introducing Oskar and can be found here in Mo's store.  I thought he would be perfect for a 50th birthday card for my BIL - Happy Birthday Alex - but my husband decided it wasn't quite good enough for his little Bro! How very rude!!  So I told him to make one himself then but he couldn't use any of my stash!!  
The papers are My Mind's Eye  and the sentiments are from Stampin Up and Lili of the Valley.
Oh and the Fab 50s die arrived very fortuitously on the day I was making my card from the Ellison online sale.
Let me know if you think I was right to take umbrage at my OH's rejection!!
Hugs, Juliexx

Summer Lovin at PFP

Today's card is for our new Summer Loving themed challenge at A Passion for Promarkers as chosen by our lovely Lisa.  So you can have anything 'lovey' on your make - maybe an anniversary, wedding, engagement - the possibilities are endless!
Me, I've just gone with straight and simple love, using this gorgeous Owl Moon digi image from Mo's Digital Pencil.  To be honest, this is an image that I've overlooked in my ever expanding Mo stash, and I think that's such a shame as it really is a little beauty and a joy to colour!
I took my colours from this scrummy My Mind's Eye paper then added a new Marianne Star  XL die (LR0369) and a Memory box die for the twig frame, which I cut several times to make it large enough to go round my image.

The sentiment is from Lili of The Valley and the rest of the embellies are from stash.

Our fab sponsors this week are Polka Doodles who are offering the following two just gorgeous images to this week's lucky winner.

Don't forget to check out the stunning makes of my teamies here at PFP HQ and then come and share your wonderful creations with us in the challenge - just remember to use your Promarkers or other Letraset colouring products.
Happy Tuesday!
