Something Else on Saturday #2 Art by MiRan Colouring Page

Good morning and welcome to another of my Something Else on Saturday posts. This week I am using one of the gorgeous new colouring pages from Art by MiRan. I used to be on her Design Team until she took a break from drawing to focus on having her baby, who is a gorgeous little girl now.

However, she has recently returned with a small colouring book and this is one of the pages from it. I resized it to an almost A5 sized image and coloured it using my Copics. It took a while to do but it turned out so beautiful I think, that it was well worth it! (Why does my sky always look horrible when I photograph it, though?! It looks so much better in real life!)

Lawn Fawn Gnomeo and Juliet

Good afternoon and welcome to my post for today. I am joining in with the Lawn Fawnatics Challenge this week which is to make a project inspired by a book, a movie or a song. Having just bought the cute Oh Gnome set and the Mushroom House dies I just had to use them.

Gnomeo and Juliet is a fun movie so I used the colours of the two gnome families as the basis for my card. I recently watched the Sherlock Gnomes film on Netflix which must be the sequel and it was really funny too!

Something Else on Saturday #1 Featuring Pearl's Birthday Tiddly Inks

Good Morning! I have had to move my Fantasy Friday post to a Saturday now as a lot of the posts for Scrapper's Delight, my new design team, are on Fridays and so neither post gets lost or missed, I thought I would move my regular feature to a Saturday. However I didn't think that Fantasy Saturday would work, so I came up with Something Else on Saturday instead!

And for my first Something Else post, I thought I would share my latest Tiddly Inks creations using the gorgeousPearl's Birthday digi stamp. Mermaids are always a firm favourite of mine and I just love this new image!

Scrapper's Delights Progressive Challenge for March

Good evening and welcome to my post for the new progressive challenge from Scrapper's Delights. This month we are using this gorgeous Easter themed image, Eggstra Special and I went for one of my go-to sets of paper to make a pastel coloured card. But alas (poor Yorick!) this was basically all I had left and I have finally finished this pack of papers after about 10 years of owning them! I bet you all have heaps of really old stuff in your stash like I do!

Faery Ink Inspiration Post Believe In Yourself

Good Morning and welcome to my inspiration post for Faery Ink for this week. This week I have used the gorgeous Believe In Yourself, which was the One Day Fae Giveaway at the end of last month, but I just didn't have chance to use her at the time. To say work has been hectic the past week or so is an understatement, but it will ease off eventually I'm sure!


I went for some bright tropical colours in this image and then decided on a silvery, grey hair colour, which I have added Clear Star Gelly Roll Pen to, but you can't see in this photo! 
This project is also for Love To Scrap Challenge #119 Anything Goes Through The Craft Room Door Challenge Anything Goes Digi Choosday Challenge Week 10 Anything Goes Crafting From The Heart Challenge #238 Anything Goes Incy Wincy Designs Challenge Let's Use Ribbon Artistic Inspirations Challenge #213 Anything Goes

Fantasy Friday #30 Featuring Unicorn Birthday from Isabel Cristina Stamps

Good morning and welcome to another of my Fantasy Friday posts. This week I have used the adorable to make a bright, fun birthday card.

I do love my unicorns and saw a friend of mine using these digi stamps, so had to go and buy them. I love the idea of a rainbow mane and that's where the colour combo came from! However, it is harder to match colours to it when you have so many, so hopefully these papers from the Rainbow Magic pad from Hobbycraft work well enough.

Stamps: Unicorn Birthday from Isabel Cristina Stamps,  Magic Sampler from Paper Smooches

Papers: Chocolate Chip (Retired) from Stampin' Up, Rainbow Magic Patterned Papers from Hobbycraft, Make It colouring Blending card from Make It Crafty

Fantasy Friday #29 Featuring Once Upon A Time from Christine Karron

Good morning and welcome to this week's Fantasy Friday post! This week I have another colouring for you using this gorgeous image, Once Upon A Time, from Christine Karron, which is for the monthly challenge in her fan Facebook group. There was also an added twist to this month's challenge which was to write a story to go along with this image!


I'm not great at story writing, but here's my attempt...

"No, it can't be them already!" Kiara whispered.
"Quick, let's move just in case," Riordan replied.

They quickly began to make their way through the forest, deeper and deeper, darker and darker, but they could still hear the pounding of heavy footfalls behind them, getting louder and louder as they got closer and closer. Riordan kept a tight grip on his beloved's hand, knowing that if they were caught he would never see her again. Hearts pounding like drums trying to burst through their chests, they kept on going, even though their legs felt …
