Treadmill Tina #thisgirlcan

Morning -
Today is my regular Sunday post but I've tried to keep our current promo theme of Boys V Girls which we are running along with Kit and Clowder. ( You need to join the group and then you can get Player Two image as a freebie but also a chance win amazing vouchers to spend at Dr Digi house of stamps.

So keep the theme I have used Treadmill Tina and next Sunday I am doing a boy version using Run Derek Run. I'm doing a lot of running at the mo as we have a step challenge at work and I'm nothing if not competitive! I love that Tina is giving it her all - she has all the gear and is giving it a go #thisgirlcan.

The papers I used are from Simple Stories DIY Boutique and I've coloured Tina with Copics. I've added some ribbon and enamel shapes from Doodlebug. The letters are from Websters pages.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you will leave a comment to say Hello.
Have a lovely day,

Wryn loving her teddy bear.

Hello -
Today I am sharing a card I made using Wryn Loving and teddy bears  from Tiddly inks.
The greeting "Big hugs" was made using a Lawn Fawn Die called Big scripty words. I cut this from heart paper from Doodlebug pad called Puppy love. The heart paper at the bottom of the card is also from this pad. I die cut the image using a My Favourite things dies and attached this to the Kraft card base using 3d foam.  

I used these copics to colour Wryn and I used a dotting method on the Teddy bear to try and make him look textured and fluffy! I think it has worked out ok but I need more practice!

Well thats all from me for now,
Liz (:(|)x

Flowers for Teddy Friend.

Morning there is a new challenge at I Love Promarkers and thie theme we were given to play with was a Photo Inspiration. This is the photo - some lovely bright flowers!
The sponsor is Bugaboo Stamps  and I have used an image called  Bug Flower Teddy -
I have raided my stash and used some flowers and a chipboard shape which I covered in stickles glitter glue. The Paper is from Doodlebug and I've had it forever!! I used a stamp from paper smooches to make the greeting.

I hope you like the card and will join in to show us what you are creating with your promarkers,

Fun in the Sun

Morning - there is a new and slightly longer challenge beginning today at The Paper Shelter as we are having a couple of weeks off to enjoy the Summer and this amazing weather we are having. (Although I can do without the hose pipe ban and the fires on the moors)

My card today used a new image called Having Fun in the Sun and she is just too cool!!  So she has funky blue hair and so super sunglasses!

I coloured her with COPICS and the paper and sticker are from Echo Park Summer Days collection with a little lolly ice (or is it an ice lolly??) charm tied to some thin blue ribbon.

Thanks for popping by and I hope you will find some time to join the challenge at the Paper shelter blog - you can win a cracking prize!

IT Ian

Morning -
Todays card is using I.T. Ian - Dr Digi . 
I am rubbish with technology and always turn to my Husband to fix my laptop or the printer which has been a right nusiance this week. I still love a pencil and paper but I am also slightly addicted to my phone so I guess I am in that middle generation where it doesn't quite come naturally. I remember having to programme my parents Vhs recorder for them... Now Its my turn to struggle with setting the wifi and digital planner!! 

Ive used copics to colour the image and the papers are My Minds Eye - Lil' Robots paper collection. i stamped a greeting from Mama Elephant Occasional Sayings and mounted it on black mirri card which I also used to make a boared using My Favourite things die. I also tied some twine around the card and made a little die cut spanner to add an embellishment using a screw brad.

Thanks for stopping by - that's all from me for now,

Hole in one Hal

Firstly ... I know ... I should have done a football card (Well Done England!!) but honestly its been a bit crazy busy here with house reno's and work etc so I am showing you the last card I did for the magazine a while back. I've kept it in reserve for this very reason... This is Hole in one Hal and he is such a fun image to colour.
So I have a question for your crafty folk... do you make your cards from start to finish in one go or in stages... I have loads of images coloured as thats the bit I love doing but then I need inspiration for how to make then in to a card. I should do the whole thing as I go along right? So be interested to know what your creative process is... if you have one!

Hole in one Hal was coloured using copics and papers are from My Minds Eye and Doodlebug. The greeting is from Make it Crafty and an embossing folder was used to make the golf ball effect pattern in the background.

I hope you like him and take a look at all the wonderful images at Dr Digi.

Hot Videogame Vince.

Morning - I hope you are all enjoying the lovely weather ... I admit I love the heat and Sunshine but also the shade. I wonder how many people have been sitting around in the house in the evening with just there pants and underwear just like Videogame Vince - although I think his atire is more due to laziness than weather. I doubt he has even opened his curtains to see the daylight!

The image is from Dr digi and I coloured him with Copic pens but used Prismacolour pencils on the chair. I die cut the image using My Favourite things dies and also the patterned papers which hold the fold open. I added some emanel dots and a greeting from Craftworks card to finish off the card and did it all on a manly Kraft card base!

I hope you like him and have a lovely Sunday - however you choose to spent it!
