Happy 50th Birthday

I'm very last minute adding my card to the monthly progressive challenge at The Outlawz.  I finished it before I went away but somehow didn't upload it at all.  I just got home this morning so only had today to make sure it was uploaded!


The image is from Sheepski Designs and is coloured with copic markers.  I have used a paper from a paper pad.  I added a digital sentiment and some pre-made leaf, flower and butterfly embellishments.  Matting is pink pearlescent paper.

I would like to enter my card into these challenges:

Spots Dot and Circles

This fortnight's challenge at Incy Wincy Designs is all about Spots, Dots and Circles.  You must have at least 3 spots, dots or circles.  The sponsors for this challenge are Fabrika Fantasy and Cute As A Button.



I have used an image from Fabrika Fantasy called Cheerful Crab.


Colouring is with copic markers.  The papers are all from an aquatic themed paper pad (which I don't have with me as I'm away from home and can't remember what brand it is!).  I added a polka dot bow in addition to the polka dot papers.

Sunflower Frame


We are at the start of a new challenge at Scribbles Designs.  This month our theme is Favouring The Feminine.  I went with a floral theme.  The image that I chose to use is called Sunflower Frame and the sentiment is Don't Postpone Joy Quote.  I also used a digital paper from Scribbles Doodle Designs.




Colouring of the image is with copic markers - to match the digital paper.  Matting is yellow pearlescent paper.

I remember when noodles were things we ate

Being from an aquatic family, this image and sentiment really appealed to me.  Particularly as during competitive swimming times, we ate alot of pasta and noodles!

The image that I have used is called Pool Friends.

Enjoy Your Day

Today I am going to a Better Food Fair so I'm hoping for some good weather as it is mainly outside stalls I think.  It will give me a chance to try some different foods that I haven't tried before so I'm looking forward to it.

I have left a comment on the post for the challenge at Stella Says Sketch as the closing date of the challenge is unclear.  The post in writing says Sunday 11th April but Sunday is the 15th April.  The linky is due to close on Wednesday 11th April.   I suspect it is meant to be nearer the 15th April than the 11th April but I may be incorrect.
