Penguin Christmas card

Hi Everyone, would you believe it? - another Christmas card - I can't either. Blame Kathy D at Deedee's, she asked if I would make a card for the Deedee's sponsored challenge at Completely Christmas I followed the sketch we are asked to use and here it is. I love these penguins having fun. They are from the "Dashing Through" kit, so is the sentiment.
I added Stickles and snow effect to the hat and the snow, and 3D gloss to the feet, mouth, and eyes.

It's time for a new challenge at

 Digitally Sweet Challenges

the Theme is 

"Things with Wings"

sponsored by  Lunagirl

I have fallen in love with Lunagirl all over again. I never thought I would say I like Vintage, but oh! my she has some gorgeous images. We were given a choice of images to play with and this little girl waiting for the butterfly to land on her flowers just jumped out at me.  I added another butterfly in the small cluster I put together with the layout in PS. 

I have used DP and Elements from Authentic a Digi kit by Valentina


Christmas baubles

Hiya Everyone, yes I know, I don't do Christmas cards before December, but Deedee's has a sponsored challenge at Christmas Cards All Year 'Round and I just had to give this a go, AND I had the opportunity to use different colours, which, surprisingly, traditional Hubby loved!

I have 2 posts today, see you in a bit :)

White and gold dot ribbon and lots of glitter and a
 MS border punch, the sentment is also from Deedee's kit.
 I folded the star so it is super 3D

Vintage Pansy girl

Hi Everyone, Paulette at  Create with TLC has let me know that I was "first past the post" in sending in a card with the freebie Vintage Sketch - Spring Pansies. I thought I would share this pretty image still a freebie (see the link above.) She is so pretty, I just had to colour her, with help, from a digi kit "Pansy Garden" by Alexis Design Studio.

Husband's card

Hi Everyone, today, another gorgeous sunny 21C day, I LOVE this weather.
I have my DH birthday card for you today. The papers and elements are from a blog hop in March 2014 at SweetShoppe Designs the kits are all "Sweet Everyday".
The wonderful shoes are by Creat with TLC.
I printed all the elements, layered and 3D'd the tabs and the shoe quote, I 3D glossed the shoes, so they shine like DH's. I think he'll like it, his birthday isn't until next week but he won't see this, as his idea of being a techie, is to play backgammon on an app on the TV. LOL.

EDIT - proud to be featured on TLC ATG  Words Words Words - hope it fits Masculine

Scrapbook page

HI everyone, thank you to my new followers who have decided I am good enough to follow, I really appreciate seeing you here. I hope you enjoy your stay.

Now to entertain you this beautiful Spring day, I am offering you a scrap page with a starring role of my baby brother. I shan't explain anything about it as his words are the ones which were used in an email to me with a picture of Chloe. My SIL took the both of them having an afternoon nap, (yes Chloe is sleeping) and sent it to me

Trying to be Arty?

The Stamping Boutique has a flower digi for it's challenge on Facebook, I have just received my winning magazine  so had to have a go at "trying" to be arty as there were wonderful examples in the magazine.

This is my attempt, using 21 layers and blending options in PS. I know the professionals use a lot more, but I thought this was enough for me to start with, although sometimes I use a great deal more layers for my cards.  It's a start anyway, hope to carry on doing a bit more "arty", although I haven't a clue what it means LOL. Hubby thinks I should have used different colour for the flowers what do you think? Let me know.

Here is my card for the challenge. Quite a bit different!  The Stamping Boutique Facebook Challenge.
