Pretty In Pink

Hello Everyone.
Well a fortnight has whizzed by, so it is now time for a new challenge at Cardz 4 Galz. This time round the challenge is 'Pink and Brown'.
I have used a Julie Nutting stamp for my creation. For some reason it has turned into a Christmassy style card even though we are in summer - lol. I have coloured her skin and hair with ProMarkers, and paper pieced her outfit. The background has been run through a snowflake embossing folder to add some texture. The corners are cut using a Memory Box die, and the whole card was finished with the addition of some pearls.
I would like to enter my card in the following challenges;
Christmas At Sweet Stampin' - warm winter clothing
Little Red Wagon - Kraft-tastic
Sisterhood Of Crafters - create your own background
A Snowflakes Promise - anything goes Christmas
Crafting From The Heart - anything goes
Corrosive - lots of layers
Left Of Center - tic tac toe
Crafty Hazelnuts Christmas - cute or anything goes Christmas
and
Thank you for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back for another visit soon.
Hugs Sharon xx

Hello All
Another week has flown by, and once again it is time for another new challenge at Cardz 4 Guyz. This week our theme is 'At The Movies'.
I have resorted to using one of my favorite punches - the Build An Owl punch from Stampin ' Up to create my assorted superheros. These little guys are simple yet addictive to make, and this punch is just so versatile as you can make all sorts with it, not just owls.

Retarte - anything goes
Crafty Cardmakers - for a special man
Amusing - masculine

Summer Fun

Hello Again
Today sees the start of the latest challenge over at Cardz 4 Galz. This time round, we would like to see your 'Summer Fun' creations.
Whenever I think of summer, sun flowers spring to mind, and it always reminds me of growing them with the children, and measuring their progress to see who can grow the tallest.
The image has been created with a very old Stampin' Up roller stamp, which has been coloured with ProMarkers. I have added a second, decoupaged layer to add some depth to the flowers, I love the clean and simple overall effect of this card, and it reminds me of those happy summer days.
I hope this will inspire you to hop over to the main blog and join in the fun.
I'd like to enter my card in the following challenges;
Crafty Creations - tic tac toe
Crafty Sentiments - anything goes
Everybody Art - not cute
Passion For ProMarkers - anything but square
Hand Stamped Sentiments - photo inspiration
Simon Says Stamp - summer garden
Dragonfly Dreams- say it with flowers
Penny Black and More - flower power
and
Crazy 4 Challenges - make it floral
Thanks for stopping by, and I'll be back really soon with my next creation.

Zoology

Hello All
It's time once again for another new challenge over at Cardz 4 Guyz. The theme this week is 'Something Beginning With Z'.
I must admit I really struggled with this, and in the end I have just used a downloadable decoupage from Crafts U Print, which I have simply matted onto a backing once I'd done the decoupage.
I do hope you like my cute little zoo card.
Thanks for stopping by and I'll be back soon with some more creations.
