Pike's Playground Challenge

This week the challenge at Pike's Playground is Shades of Green, so I thought I would enter, seeing as I had some time in my craft room!!! I know that time is going to few & far between now that the weather is nicer, so thought I'd jump at the chance to enter!!

I have used 2 images from Doodle Dragon studios - the horse and the hay bale. I have coloured them both with Copics, cut them out and layered them. I kept this card pretty simple as it is going to be travelling across the pond to my BIL in Australia! The sentiment was printed on the computer & I used my speech bubble punch for the first time ever!! LOL Sheesh!!!
Wish me luck!

And entering the Stamp Fairy challenge....

Again, because of the rain, I had a lot of time to play in my craft room this week...yeahhhh!!! I love it when I can do that! I don't feel guilty about yard work, etc.

I am entering this card into The Stamp Fairy Challenge this week, which is to use BALLOONS on your project. I had just used a Stamp Fairy image on Sunday with balloons but I couldn't back link so I was "forced" to make another card using the adorable SF images (twisted my rubber arm...LOL)

I have used Donny Ladybug and coloured him with Copics. The balloon has crystal lacquer on it for dimension and some stickles on his wings. The CS is Kiwi Kiss & Tangerine Tango (SU) and the DP is also from SU but I can't remember what pack it was from. The flowers and pearl are from my stash!

Thanks for stopping by!!! I hope you all have a great weekend!!!

Entering the Kenny K White on White challenge....

**PLEASE scroll down, this is my second post for the day!!!! THANKS!!!**

Good morning everyone! It was so rainy here yesterday (a holiday here in Canada) so I had lots of time to play in my craft room - after the laundry was done of course!!!

I am entering this card into the Kenny K's Krafty Girlz Challenge this week. I have used CLUB KID which is one of many Kenny K images - he is always coming up with awesome new images! Go check it out!!!!

The papers I have used are Glossy white & Shimmery white (SU) then there is a layer of mulberry paper from my stash. The white flowers, ribbon and pearl are from my stash too! I have coloured her with Copics & because I WAS allowed a coloured sentiment, I used Pink Passion ink (SU). The sentiment is from my fave Simon Says Stamp set, as per usual..LOL!!!

Anyway, have a great rainy Tuesday (or sunny, wherever you may be!)
Wish me luck!!!

The CS is Blush Blossom, Brocade Blue and Creamy Caramel (SU) and the DP is from DCWV - Nana's Kids pack. I coloured it all with Copics and layered the bear (see photo below).
