New Kelita Birthday Image

How exciting it is this week as we have a new image to play with. In honour of Tickled Pink's Birthday there is a new Kelita and we got to have a play.

I had so much fun making my card today I just sat down and went to work. I have been really struggling with my cards lately, getting the papers to match or colouring, but today it all just seemed to come together. In fact if I had of not got talking to my lovely friend Dee, not that I mind at all love having a good old yarn, I would have got this finished in record time!!

So I decided to use this months sketch at CLP Challenge Blog and had lots of fun with it.

In honour of Tickled Pinks birthday I have used lots of PINK!! I think it suits this card though.

Be sure to pop over to LLB and cheque out every one's AMAZING cards. I love how differently she has been used on each of the cards.

I am also going to enter my card into this weeks challenge at Stamp Something - Digi Stamp

One for fun...

Wow it seems like ages since I got to make a card just for fun and finally this weekend I got a chance to have a play. My hubby and kids went to a car rally on Saturday night so I settled down at my desk and made a card. I have made a very silly promise to myself that I would not buy anymore stamps until I had made a card using each of the ones I have recently purchased. Oh boy how I wish I didn't as there are some fabby new ones out at the moment, may need to break that promise, LOL! Oh well gives me a good reason to sit and play...

I used this weeks sketch from Papertake Weekly and combined it with this weeks challenge at Totally Gorjuss, sparkle. I got this gorgeous stamp from Tickled Pink about a month ago and decided she was perfect for these papers. I decided to keep the card quite basic as the image is so big I wanted the attention to be drawn to that.

I have distressed the edges and inked them with some brown I then added some faux stitching. I am in love with the new magnolia dies and ended up using the end of my vintage tag die to get the border. I am desperately trying to get my hands on the Tilda's Lace, but everywhere seems to be sold out. I have added glitter to the flower and to the sunflowers and wings.

Well I am off to work soon so I better get off the computer and finish getting the cleaning done before I head off.

I hope you have all enjoyed your weekend and if you are in Melbourne are soaking up all this gorgeous sunshine we are having.

Thanks for stopping by, until next time xoxo

Its sketch time at Lil Lolita

Wow another week has passed by. it feels like just yesterday that I was writing my post for last weeks challenge. We have had a busy week in the Beekman household with the kids school festival on Sunday. We have been planning it for a year now and it poured all day long!! Never mind though the day was a huge success and everyone had lots of fun which was our main objective. All I can say is thank goodness I have a year until we need to start planning for our 2012 festival.

So onto this weeks challenge....It's a sketch.

I have been wanting to make one of these bookmark holders for a while now so decided to incorporate the sketch into it. I have used the sketch in the middle section of the holder.

Be sure to pop over to LLB and check out everyone's creations I can assure you that you will not be disappointed.

Well that's it for me today. Thanks for stopping by until next time xoxo

Lil Lolita - Skulls Challenge

Good evening everyone, I hope this finds you all well.

So this weeks challenge at LLB is to use Skulls on your project. Once again not being something that I generally use I had to take another trip off to the scrapbooking shop, dam shame that, LOL! Anyhow I managed to be very good and walk away with just a hand few of buttons, I know shock horror! This week I have used the challenge over at Tickled Pink Monthly Sketch Challenges for my card.

This week I got to play with Willow the Ghost. I have been dying, excuse the pun, to ink her up since Kel sent it though. Although I have had no time to practice colouring her up so this is my first attempt, therefore please excuse the less than perfect job.

I am really pleased how my card ended up coming out and had to make up this sentiment as when I was making my card my darling son came up to me and said "oooooooo" but in a really scary spooky voice!

Thanks for stopping by, until next time xoxo

Lil Haunts come out to play for challenge 18

When Kellie sent through the Lil Haunts that I had to play with I busting at the seams to share them with you. It was so exciting making a card using them as it was something different and by all means something that I have never done before, making a Halloween based card.

I must admit I went into panic mode last week when I realised that I did not have anything that suited a Halloween card at all but was then quietly excited as it meant that I had a good excuse to head of to the local scrapbooking store!!!! Having said that though they did not really have an awful lot but I was happy with the papers I picked anyhow.

Our challenge to you this week is a colour challenge - black, purple and orange. Easy peesy! I cant wait to see what you all come up with, have a slight feeling that all our US friends may trump us all on this challenge!

Oops so busy talking nearly forgot to put my card up! Here it is for some reason though the orange in is A LOT brighter in the photo, I tried all different lights made no difference.

I also used last weeks sketch as I did nto get a chance to do it last week. 

You may notice that I will be very quite on the blog front over the next week (and have been for the last week too) but we have our school big festival next weekend and I am on the committee so at the moment all my free time is being spent at doing festival stuff and then on top of that trying to get cards made for my own stall that I am having there on the day. It will be good when it is over with we having been planning since this time last year. I will be popping over looking at LLB but may not have a chance to comment on your creations, please don't be offended.

Thanks for stopping by, until next time xoxo
