Just For You

In my quest to use up some of the images that I have printed out, I have created a card with this one.  I am very slowly making a dent in the container of images but at least I am decreasing the pile!

I would like to enter:
Feeling Sketchy - Sketch
http://feeling-sketchy.blogspot.com/2019/06/sketch-219.html

I have used a paper from a paper pad by Kaisercraft.  I added some glitter cardstock.  The image is from Ike's Art and is coloured with copic markers.  Matting is deep red cardstock.  I added some glitter dome gems and a sentiment typed on the computer.

NOEL

This week at CHNC, our optional theme is Add a snowflake or snowflakes.


I have used a paper from a paper pad by Kaisercraft.  The image is from Bugaboo Stamps.  Colouring is with copic markers and Wink Of Stella.  Matting is silver cardstock.  I added some glitter foam snowflakes as embellishments.

I used the sketch at Tuesday Morning Sketches as inspiration.  I changed the black line across the image to a snowflake in the centre - and also changed the image shape from oval to square.  I think you can still see the basic sketch there though.

The Outlawz Sunday Challenge - Saturday In The Park
http://outlawzchallenges.ning.com/group/sunday-clean-and-simple/forum/topics/sunday-songs-and-rhymes-june-15-to-june-29-2019

I have used a red, white and blue floral paper from a paper pad by Kaisercraft.  The sentiment is from the same paper pad.  The image is from Creative Bug Digitals and is one I had printed out when I was a DT for Creative Bug Digitals but hadn't got around to colouring.  Colouring is with copic markers.  I also added some blue ric-rac braid and some red flowers.

Thank You

I thought I had posted this one when I completed it but checked through my camera and I hadn't even photographed it.  I think that was probably feeling really bad with cold/flu that I have had for the past six weeks.  At the moment it is back to a head cold and hopefully will dry up in the next day or two.  Mind you I have been saying that for the past fortnight.

Tiddly Inks - All squared up
http://tiddlyinkschallenge.blogspot.com/2019/06/challenge-226-all-squared-up.html

Happy Birthday

I am having trouble getting the link direct to the post at Catch The Bug.  I have tried going in through the Saturday tab on the left as well as by day from the Home button.  Nothing seems to give me the link so I have added the best link that I could manage below the challenge.

Cool Dudes

We have had another lovely day following an overnight frost.  I'm preferring this weather to the rain that preceded it although I do know that the farmers need the rain to keep their crops watered.

Summer in the Sun

Although we have had the sun out most days this week, the air temperature has been very chilly.  The sun just doesn't seem to burn the chill of the frost off the air.  Still, it is nice to see the sun after so much rain this winter.

Purple Wreath

I haven't had a coin toss challenge to do for a while so this was fun.  Actually, maybe I should pull out the grid for this challenge when I lose my mojo!

For this particular challenge, I came up with:
Tails - create a card that is not a rectangle (oval)
Tails - monochromatic (purple)
Heads - Add twine or thread (twine)
Tails - Decorate the inside of your card (second photo)

 And this is the decorated inside:

Happy Birthday

A summery card - inspired by the sun that we have had this week.  I'm hoping that it sticks around for a while to dry up my head cold.   As it is the middle of winter, I might just be being a bit too optimistic!

Canvas

When I saw this image, I knew I wanted to do a canvas rather than a card this month.  It gave me a good opportunity to bring out some stash that I hadn't used in a while too.

Buying The Tree

This image brings back memories of my brother and I going with Dad to pick out the Christmas tree.  And then we would walk home with it - Dad carrying one end and my brother and I the other end.  I'm not sure how old we were and whether we were more hindrance than help!

Be Mine

I was doing some tidying up recently and discovered that I have a large number of images printed out that haven't been coloured and/or used to create a card.  I am going to try and use at least one per week (more if possible) to reduce the pile.  This is one of the ones that I found:
