Mo Pussywillows

Have yo seen this new image, Pussywillows at Mo's Digital Pencil?  Isn't she wonderful!
She comes with a a couple of sentiments and I used Thinking of You originally but when I was inking the edges the ink smeared and that was after I'd left the image printed overnight. I've never had that before so I was a bit  grrrrrrh!   
Anyway, I cut it off and quite like the finished result!

The papers are some from the Pound shop and the wildflower die is a Memory Box one.

We've been car hunting this week and going again today - gosh there's so much out there!

Happy weekend,  folks.

Little Elf Daya for Christmas in July - the new challenge at Mo's DP2 Challenges

Yayyy, folks it's new challenge day on Mo's Digital Pencil Too!  It's always Anything Goes for the challenge as we want to see as many of your gorgeous Mo makes as possible.  But, we do have an optional theme of Christmas in July - my first Christmas card of the year and what better way to kick-start than with a fab new Mo image!  This is Little Elf Darya and should be in the shop today or any day soon!

Now, I've gone for really  untraditional colours here but I wanted to use this fairy lights paper which I think were Crate Paper.

Also, the challenge runs for the whole of the month so you have plenty of time to get cracking!!

New Home with Lavinia Stamps

Love the Lavinia houses for New Home cards - decided to go bold and bright colouring just the main house in jewel colours purple and gold.

The background is distress oxide - thankfully, I have a batch of these prepared just waiting for the right project!

Busy, busy at the minute with card-making, when I should be in the garden really, but hey-ho!

Passion for Promarkers - We're all Squares this week!

Nice and easy-peasy challenge starting today at Passion for Promarkers where we want you to be Square!  So it can be just as easy as a square card blank!
Our sponsors this week are the fab Dr Digi stamps where you can always be sure of getting a great image, especially for those difficult male cards.  This one is Caveman Klob - what a beaut eh! Just click on his name to find him in the on line store.

I've coloured him with my Promarkers of course then matched him up with some free papers from the May 19 edition of Making Cards Magazine and also some from DCWV - Safari Chic.
The sentiment is from Mama Elephant and really suits this cool dude somehow.

The winner of this week's challenge will be able to choose two digi images of their choice from Dr Digi's store  so hope you will join in the challenge with us!
Check out the fab makes of my teamies here if you'd like some inspiration.

Hugs, Juliexx
