An Easter card

The image I got for this week, is"Allie in Egg with Sentiment" from Patties Creations, for the challenge 
over at Glitter n Sparkle. 
When I saw this image, I thought my niece would like it, so used it on her Easter card.
I had to add the chick separately, as that wasn't a part of the image, 
but I also wanted to add a chick because it was mentioned
in the sentiment. 
I hand-cut and embossed the egg shape with hearts and added a brown organza ribbon.
The backing paper came from a set I bought in a £1 shop,.

It's Spring!

I love the colours in this fresh, spring card. 
I got the "Lovesick kitty" image from Eureka, over at Glitter n Sparkle. 
So cute!
I used marianne dies (birdcage and bird)
and I hand-cut the heart.
I coloured the kitty with my promarkers and stamped some little easter eggs
which i got in a free set of stamps last year - it was on the front
of a magazine... can't remember which one, now. 
The backing papers came from a set I bought in a pound shop a few years ago... I'm finally
getting round to using them! lol.

A shaped card

I got a fab little image this week, from Sassy Studios, for my weekly challenge over at the
Glitter n Sparkle blog...

...where we had to make a shaped card.
I struggled to come up with a suitable shape at first, 
but then remembered the trusty old shape -"stack of presents" -
which I hand-cut and paper pieced. 
I used some papers from docrafts, for the presents....
 which I though, were quite patriotic colours of our uk flag.
Or, I guess, they could also be for the US flag...with the star aswell!
The star sentiment is from craftwork cards. 
I used a selection of my promarkers
to colour the image, on the new card I bought last weekend at Sincerley yours craft show.
The card is super smooth - just right for my alcohol pens - and is 280gsm. 
(Bought at Limetree craft stand at the show)

Pearls and lace

This week, over at Glitter n Sparkle, the challenge
is to use pearls and lace...

Such a cute image...girl with bunny from bugaboo. 
I used a  pink petticoat curly girlie sentiment,
and docrafts backing came as a freebie some time ago
in a pack,I think it was called pampered pets. 
(The paper in that pack is lovely!)
I thought it was reminiscent of lace. 
I added some lace look borders - punched, really
and little pearls...although the "pearls" around the image are liquid pearls.
