The Paper Shelter Challenge #300 Summer Birthday

Good Morning and welcome to my DT post for the new challenge from The Paper Shelter. This week our challenge is for you to create a summer birthday project. There are loads of gorgeous summer themed digis in the Paper Shelter store, so why not pop on over there and treat yourself to some!

I used the gorgeous I Wish I Was There and went for a turquoise with touches of pink and yellow for a bright summery, tropical colour combo. I so wish I was down by the beach right now - it is so hot and humid here in the UK and we're not equipped for this heat. Air con??? Hardly anywhere! Not at home nor at work and with no breeze either! Just have to go down to the pool and swim after work to cool down instead!

Papers: Bermuda Bay, Whisper White & Soft Suede all from Stampin' Up, Super Smooth Card from That Craft Place, Under The Sea Paper Bloc from Joy Crafts

Ching-Chou Kuik Inspiration Post - Rainbow After Rain

Good Morning and welcome to another inspiration post from me for the Ching-Chou Kuik Inspiration and Challenge blog. This week I am sharing with you the gorgeous Rainbow After Rain.

This image is just gorgeous and I really wanted to use the sentiment stamp with her, which came from a set I found on eBay. I thought it would perfect to add to my quotes journal, which hasn't been added to for absolutely ages now! I kept the image fairly simple so the book doesn't become too bulky once it is completed so I just added a few cloud die cuts, some ribbon and the sentiment.

Ching-Chou Kuik Inspiration Post - In My Gaze

Good Morning everyone and welcome to my inspiration post for the Ching-Chou Kuik Inspiration and Challenge blog. This week I am sharing my card using the gorgeous In My Gaze. The DT were challenged to use Kraft card, but unfortunately I have no idea where my kraft pack is! I hunted and hunted but all I could find was the kraft card blanks, but not the actual pack of A4 card that I am pretty sure I have somewhere! Instead I used Crumb Cake from Stampin' Up, which once upon a time used to be called Kraft, although it's not quite the same colour. I think I can get away with it though!

Ching-Chou Kuik Challenge Butterflies

Good Morning and welcome to my DT post for the new challenge from the Ching-Chou Kuik Inspiration and Challenge Blog. This month our challenge is another really easy - Butterflies, so we would love to see your butterfly images, papers or embellishments. Ching-Chou has lots of gorgeous images with butterflies in her store so why not pop on over there and treat yourself!

I used the gorgeous Butterfly Charm and also added some butterfly die cuts and use my Butterfly Scallops Punch Around The Page Set from Martha Stewart. Excuse the photo but the lightbulb in my daylight lamp went yesterday and I haven't had time to go and buy a new one, so had to use a different lamp but it's not as big nor as bright! So frustrating as I don't think I have had that bulb very long either!

Delicious Doodles Challenge All Creatures Great and Small

Good Morning and welcome to my first official post for theDelicious Doodles Challenge Blog. I'm still so excited to be part of this fabulous team and thought I would use this opportunity to bring out my darker side!

Our challenge this month is called All Creatures Great and Small and I decided to use Dragon Dreams. I love dragons and anything a bit mythical and mysterious, so this image was just perfect! I couldn't decide on colours for the girl's skin initially and then went with a lime green and contrasted her with a purple and orange dragon. I love how this one came out, even if it's not my usual style.
