I'm into making tags at the moment, don't know why - I never use them. But I enjoy making them. For this tag I used an image from Illustrations by T, I totally love this one. Coloured her with Copics (for a change). The deckled oval is a Spellbinders die. The papers are from Sweet Shoppe Designs. The tag is a die from Whiff of joy which I ordered at a super price when they were closing. So glad I did, I have used it quite a few times. And a few flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts. I am going to enter this into the Challenge into the Cute Card Thursday where the theme is Florals.

Made a dinky Gift Card Holder for the Challenge over at Kraftin Kimmie where the theme is Amethyst. I don't use purple very often, but I do like it. So I used one of my new stamps for this one from this set. I do love these animal ones. The paper is Papermania. They are going down slowly - very slowly. These wee holders don't use up much paper and the papers are 12x12. Coloured with Polychromos pencils and blended with Sansador using paper stumps.

Wow, another card from me. I followed the sketch over at Sketch Saturday for this one. The image is from Simply Betty Stamps, she was a freebie to enter in the February Progressive Challenge over on Facebook. She was only free for 24hrs, but can be purchased here. The progressive challenge had the colour combo of black, red and blue. Hmm, not my go to combo right enough. So I decided to go with red and blue papers from Sweet Shoppe Designs and colour her black and white. But then I decided to give her a pop of red. Don't know if it totally works or not, but hey it's done now. Coloured with Polychromos Pencils and blended with Sansador using paper stumps.

The challenge over at Cute Card Thursday is warm colours. Not sure what colours that would be, but we'll give it a go with these ones. I got this image from Illustrations by T and just had to use her straight away. I also had to get some Pirate papers, so on the hunt I went to my usual place Sweet shoppe Designs and came across these cool papers. The Skull is a Sizzix die by Tim Holtz. It comes with a bat too. I think I got it for the bat, but the Skull is certainly the one I use most. And a few black rhinestone things to finish. I did order some Skull and Crossbones ribbon, but got a bit impatient, so stuck it all down. Yep, said ribbon arrived today. Oh well, I'll just have to make another card.

The challenge over at Tiddly Inks is Thinking of you. The big problem I had was which image to use. Well I chose this one (but can't find her in the shop). It was from when Kit and Clowder did a fundraiser for Clearwater - Winter the Dolphin. Well I have a bit of a soft spot for Dolphins. So much so, I have a tattoo of one on my shoulder. Anyway, back to my card. Image from Tiddly Inks and the papers are from Illustrations by T, but I can't find them. The sentiment is from Personal Impressions and the dies are MFT.

I have been on a roll with making cards this week. That'll not go on for long and then it'll be another month before my mojo comes back. Haha. Anyway, got my card here for the challenge over at The Sugar Bowl. This wee cutie is from Sugar Nellie (of course), but I think she has retired. The papers are from Papermania from years ago. I am finally cutting into my old papers. And believe me - I have loads. The sentiment is from Personal Impressions.

I made a quick card so I could get it entered into the Tiddly Inks Challenge, and I quite like how it turned out - I don't do quick. Pretty simple, but that is the way my cards are going these days too (but I have never been able to do the fussy ones - although I love everyone else's). The theme is Thank you. So I used this cutie and coloured her with Polychromos and blended with Sansador using paper stumps. The papers are very old and are by Papermania. I am also going to enter it into the Cute Card Thursday Challenge where they have a Ladies Only theme.
