R's & RV's at Mad for Markers

Aaaaaaa silly blogger for some reason it has deleted all my text from the post. So lets try again!

I hope you are all well today and if in Melbourne did not get washed out! talk about extremes with the weather!

I have not made a DT Card from Mad for Markers yet this year due to family things that happened at the start of the year so this is my first Mad of Markers Card this year.

Our current challenge is to use copic markers R's & RV's. I loved this challenge as there have been so many wonderful variations and combinations learnt along the way.

Not a huge amount of colouring in this card but as you see not a huge amount to colour! In saying that though 90% of the coloured image is using the R's.

So the copics I have used are:
Hair - E37, E35, E33 & E31
Skin E00, E11, E21, R20, R11
Mat/blanket R59, R85, R83 & R81
Bunny - W5, C3, C1 & R000

This card was made for very special friends of ours so I wanted it to be special.

Now in case you have not heard it is birthday month for Mad for Markers. It has been 2 years since Sammi opened  the business. Congrats to Sammi on her achievement. If you are on facebook be sure to like the Mad for Markers page as there is lots of prizes going daily and be sure to stop by the store blog  to check out the giveaways too. If you need any copic markers or some stamps be sure to pop by the store and have a browse.

That is it for me today. Thank you for stopping by, until next time xoxox

A little bit of this and that

Today I am bringing you a card that I made over the weekend. It was so hot here in Melbourne that I struggled to get lots done so I ended up making a card on Saturday evening.

Anyhow I saw the current sketch over at The Sketchy Challenges and just knew that I had to play. I love the simplicty of this sketch it is was perfect for me to finally use this Tilda stamp and papers that I have had sitting there for a little while now!

As I said had lots of fun making this card and getting to use some stash that has been laying about for a while. I really like the effect the liquid pearls have on the black circle at the front of the shaker section. There is lots of glitz to this card but the photo does not show it too well but the edges of the inner square and the flowers have stickles on them.

I am also entering my card into the following:

Simply Magnolia - Bling and Bows
Paper Sundaes - Circles

So that's it for me today. I best be off have lots of things to catch up on around the house.

Thanks for stopping by, until next time xoxox

Oooops a little late

Good afternoon everyone I hope you are having a great weekend. We are having a very hot weekend here in Melbourne and have to say I am looking forward to it colling down after tomorrow.

I am a little late for my post today for the new Magnolia Down Under Challenges. We had Internet issues yesterday and then I have been busy all day not getting a chance to turn the computer on till now.

So this week at MDUC we have a colour challenge for you, PINK, ORANGE & WHITE. At first I thought uuummmm that's interesting but I have to say these colours are stunning together.

I decided to play with my Koala Hugs Tilda again too. She is just sooo cute.

So pop over to MDUC and check out the awesome inspiration and then get crafting!

Thanks for stopping by today, until next time

Lil Easter Pinkette - Daisy August

Hi everyone hopefully this post finds you well.

Life here is slowly returning to normal with the kids back at school and the routine back in place. Not sure how long normal will last though as we are about to embark on some major renovations! I am excited I think!!!!

Anyhow today it is preview day over at Tickled Pink Stamps showcasing the new Lil Easter Pinkette - Daisy August. She is just adorable I think anyhow.

A fairly simple card for me but I think with the Pinkette's sometimes simplier is better. They are such adorable images you dont want to detract too much attention away from them.

Now be sure to pop by Tickled Pink Stamps and check out hte other amazing creations for the preview and to also find out how you could win this little cutie for yourself.

Enjoy the rest of your day. Thanks for stopping by, until next time

Just a little fun

A few weeks ago I caved I purchased my first Saturated Canary image. It is not that I don't like them, I actually LOVE THEM, but I really did not want to start another addiction! Now I am so glad that I brought one as I had so much fun just colouring her up.

My card is using a sketch that was at The Sketchy Challenges a few weeks ago. Such a simple layout and no fluff on my card which is a change!

Not sure maybe perhaps I should have reversed the black and kraft as feel there is a tad too much black.

I am entering this into:

I hope you enjoy my card. Thanks for stopping by, until next time

Just one word at Magnolia Down Under Challenges

Morning I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend.

This morning I am bringing you my DT Card for the new challenge at Magnolia Down Under Challenges, being one word sentiments. I have to admit it took a while for me to come up with just one word but finally I did.

I have made my card using the sketch that is in the latest Magnolia Ink Magazine and also my one of two stamps from the latest release. Whilst I did think there was a lot of gorgeous stamps this release they were all a bit to lovey for me and I just knew I would not use them heaps so I was a really good girl and just brought the two!

Look at all that purple on my card, I know so out of the ordinary for me! Having said that combining it with the black I really like how it looks. My sentiment is made using the kaiser craft alpha stickers and off cuts of cardstock.

Now be sure to pop by the MDUC blog and check out the other AMAZING samples.

I hope you get the time to join in with us this week.

Thanks for stopping by, until next time

I love making tags as they are super quick yet are really effective on those small gifts.

So don't forget to stop by the TPS blog and check out the other Dt's members previews and if you leave a comment there you could win her for yourself!

Tickled Pink Stamps - Lil Futuristic Stefan

Good afternoon everyone I hope you are all well. I am finally back after my small break and today am sharing with you one of the new images being released on the 11th from Tickled Pink Stamps. I am loving this futuristic release they possibilities are endless.

So today Lil Futuristic Stefan is being previewed. My card is perhaps a little plain but it is a boys card so I did not want to over do it also perhaps my mojo has not returned fully yet!

The photo makes it look quite dull bit the papers are really quite bright. I love this range from My Minds Eye.

So anyhow there is my preview for you. Be sure to pop by the TPS blog and check out the other DT members work and I believe if you leave a comment over there you could win this little cutie for yourself!

Thanks for stopping by, until next time.
