Strong in Pink!

Hi Everyone, my DT post today  -

It's time for the Monthly challenge at

Our wonderful sponsor this month is
Digistamps4joy
The theme is
100% digital
October is Breast Cancer Awareness month
Use Pink - a little or a lot
I decided to make a digital card as a former work colleague has just had the news she has a malignant cyst in her breast. I thought I would combine both for this post. I will print and layer the card and send it to her, I have been told she is quite pragmatic about her cyst.

I used the beautiful image toc 007-DS4J from Digitalstamps4joy
papers are from a Tattered Lace free download
the beautiful sentiment is from Create with TLC 
the pink ribbon is by JSS Just So Scrappy Designs
Everything laid out in PS following the Mojo sketch #466
the image is digitally coloured in PS.

A Cameo

Hi Everyone, my DT offering for the Morgan's Art World  challenge, 
which today is "Anything Goes". 


I have used the fabulous FB September freebie image of the month at Morgan's Art World, 
which is available at the start of each month for free, 
you can get it in the shop now here

I also used a freebie digital kit by Indigo Designs, with masks to frame the image,
which I coloured in PS. I thought she deserved to be dramatic, so,
I added red background to match the roses in her hair and 
added a black grunge background. 
Apart from the 3D butterfly it is a one layer image, 
I layered it onto a black paper layer and
 added a few sequins to give her some glitter?

Leaves

Hi Everyone the challenge at


Although there is a vast amount of things I could do have done, 
 I decided to make a card for a friend of ours who has a few things
 going on in his life that have caused him a lot of worry.

 I saw that Paulette at Create at TLC  had the perfect sentiment that he needs. 
I cut a frame from Lettering Delights on the Cameo
Papers and elements are by Janet Scott at Pixelscrapper
I paper pieced one of her leaf shapes with 3 different papers
then 3D'd the leaves
Added her velvet ribbon element 3D'd and placed a real ribbon on top
and used a marker for the edge.

Car Christmas card.

Hi Everyone, I saw these at Gingers House and thought that's ME!




After an awful week of inaction, laziness and no mojo, I just had to get a card done for the Outlawz Sketch challenge, after all I was featured in last weeks showcase for this card.

We have a wedding of my Great Niece in 3 weeks and I haven't anything to wear to it, no present for couple, I need my hair cut and can't be bothered to do any of it! SO this card is a major event LOL.

Anyhow my card -
I followed the sketch, which unbelievably was quite difficult 
for me this week, Told you no mojo, even with the fab sketch.
The digital paper is by ADB Designs at Digital Scrapbook Studio
The tag image is also by ADB Designs
Die is Tattered Lace Venetian
printed out and layered onto red card
gold stretch rope bow
Tonic Red glitter on some of the berries in the car.
AND at least I have another Christmas card done.

Spotlight Technique ?

Hi Everyone a card with a, new for me, technique I tried, 
but not like you clever people, but in PS. 
with a pattern by Marisa Lerin at Pixelscrapper
The sentiment is a free download from Desert Diva
I selected a circle shape and made a mask of the shape then painted inside the circle. 
I printed it out on cross hatched paper, making it an interesting texture effect.
I 3D'd the sentiment and added little squares 
which are off cuts from a die I used ages ago.
I suppose by my digital try at this effect, I am daring to be different.



I really didn't couldn't see the point of scrapbook pages 
UNTIL I made a couple of digital pages,
 now I am seeing photos for what they can be, and I'm loving it.
Here is a scrap page I did with photos of my recent camera walk.
Template is by Jilbert Beginnings 
The papers, flowers and berries elements are Dawn by Design.

Card and scrapbook page

Hello Everyone, I wanted to make a card for someone who is quite ill and thought I 
would send a card to let her know a lot of people are thinking of, and praying for her. 
As it's an overseas card, I didn't want it too layered, to reduce the postage.

I used a Silhouette nesting stitched fancy labels file, from the Silhouette shop
I used the 2 smallest and put the image by Booland Designs
 into the smallest, then print and cut. 
the "stitches" didn't cut all the way through, 
so instead of cutting them again, 
I decided to add Uniball silver glitter pen to "join" them up.
Quite a plain card for me, but love the stitched cut file.


I thought I would show you my layout I did of my Great Niece, 
I have already posted it on the Dragon's Lair Facebook Fan page, 
the papers and elements are a freebie if you post your layout in the 
Monthly Fan Group Challenge.
