Wow where is this year going??? It is challenge time again at Charisma Cardz & the theme is 'Fathers Day' I have used a fab pre coloured image from Lili of the Valley, they are great to have around when you need to make a quick card. 

The Papers are also Lili of the valley as well as the sentiment.

All Dressed Up Digi's
Hi I am Wendy Burns I live in Nottingham UK with my husband and two children who have been the inspiration behind the characters, in particular my daughter who has kept me up-to-date with blogging and trends. I work predominantly within the textile children’s wear market, fashion and interiors.
I trained as a textile designer and although my work is digital based, I love to retain that hand drawn /sewn feel which I hope comes across in my artwork.
Digital stamps is a new challenge for me and the opportunity to work with the All Dressed Up Team and has been very exciting, in particular the creative way my characters have been given individual personalities by the designers .
We have a friendly Facebook page, regular blog posts, tutorials, challenges and freebies .The stamps can be purchased from the Etsy shop which is updated on a monthly basis.
We really are friendly bunch and would love to see your creations so please feel free to contact us and visit the All Dressed Up Challenge Blog.

L is for Lots of Layers

Good Morning,

Finally I am able to say that the weather here for the next few days anyway is going to be resembling summer, possible temps of 24 degrees WOW.
Perfect timing really for today's card. It is challenge time again at The ABC Challenge and the theme is 'L is for Lots of Layers' so we want to see all your multiply layered creations.
I have used the gorgeous Playing on the beach Tilda & have coloured her up with Copic's & Pro Markers. The papers are from Lili of the Valley's Petal Fresh paper pad.


The flowers are from my stash & I have added buttons & sea shells that I have collected when I was on holiday last.
Below is a better pic of the sea shells. I have added some stickles for an added bit of sparkle

Mothers day at Charisma

Good Morning again,

Wow 2 cards from me in one day :-)

It is challenge time again over at Charisma Cardz & it's the turn of Team A to strut our stuff. The theme is Mothers Days & my card is the card that i gave to my Mum for Mothers day this year.
I thought i would use something a little different for me & that is kraft card, i had forgotten how good it looks with the right papers.

I have used Tilda Rose Sent & coloured her with Pro Markers. The papers are of course from Lili of the Valley and it is the Beach Bliss pad & the sentiment is from their Happy Circular Sentiments collection.

Good Morning,

Its challenge day over at The ABC Challenge & the theme for this challenge is 'K for Keep it simple' so we want to see your CAS creations this week. I did use to find the whole CAS thing hard to do but as I've made a few now i think I'm coming to terms with the Minimal/No embellishments.

Our wonderful sponsor this week is:

I have used a fab digi combo for this card called Whats shakin snakes & sentiment I have coloured them up using my Pro Markers & have added glossy accents to their eyes to make them look more realistic.
