Digi Choosday Week 38

This week the team were asked to make a CAS card and I knew just the collection I wanted to use, the adorable Lil Miss Sugarpops - The image is from the Mini Download 1 and I think it is my favourite Sugarpop.

I have been obsessed by Unicorns Since I was little, so this card was inspired by my inner child.


I created the layout in Silhouette with a sentiment from the Sil store and then coloured with Copics.

I wanted a really girly colour hairs, so once I had laid down a pale pink with Copics, I used various, blue, pink and purple Spectrum Noir pencils to create the texture and colour of the hair.


Finally I added a load of sparkle to the stars and horn with a Spectrum Noir clear sparkle pen, because Unicorns sparkle, right?

Digi Choosday Week 37

It's time for a new challenge at DIGI CHOOSDAY and as always it is an ANYTHING GOES challenge.  The team are busy bringing you Christmas inspiration, it's getting closer and POLKADOODLES has the most fabulous downloads and Stamps packed with Festive Lovelies.

For my card I have used an image from Winnie Winterland and kept to a nice simple card, so the image pops.

I have coloured in Copics in one of my favourite Christmas colours Turquoise and for a change mixed it with Red.



You probably can't see here by that snowman is sparkling like a star.

Digi Choosday Week 36

Welcome to a new DIGI CHOOSDAY challenge which as always is ANYTHING GOES.

You know by now that the design team doesn't get it that easy and are given a theme to follow, this weeks theme is 'MALE'.

I am not a fan of male cards, I am usually pretty stumped, which is not good, with a family of Nephews, Dads, Step Dads, my Son and all his male Friends, and get this I work in a Car Dealership ( I make everyones birthday cards) and it is mainly male, so really I should be a pro!!

Anyway, Polkadoodles makes it easier for me with their fun images, for this challenge I have used Gamer from Work and Play 2, perfect for all my sons friends, who are all crazy about gaming.


I coloured my image with Copics and made an easel card with Kraft and put some funky arrow papers from my stash on the front.  I also added a Playstation controller from the Silhouette store to complete my gamers card.

Would love to see you enter our challenge which runs for 2 weeks and of course Prizes!!!

Also every Tuesday there is a discount code posted along with the challenge, fab for all the new images Polkadoodles have released recently.

Pink Pansy

It's an anything goes challenge over at Aurora Wings and I thought I might try some colours that are a little out of my comfort zone.

I chose Pansy Sprite, which was a freebie a little while ago.  I had a search on google and found a pansy in unexpected colours.


So had a little attempt with these colours, it started fairly well, but I think the shades of pink I chose didn't quite work as expected, still it is always a lesson learnt.

To keep with the bold colour choice I used a mixture of die cuts in pink and orange to complete my card.

Poppy Mouse

We have a new challenge over at Colour Crazy Challenge and this week we have two lovely sponsors.



I have chosen to work with Poppy Mouse by Di's Digi Stamps.


I coloured the lil mouse first using Copics and to get the texture,  once the ink was dry I put a little surgical spirit on an old flannel and dabbed a couple of times.

Once the mouse was dry I coloured the remainder of the image with Graph-it Markers.

I cut a swing card template and added a few odds of patterned paper.
