Robyn's Fetish Challenge # 144 Add Some Brads and Ribbon

Sponsored by

With a prize of $12 to spend in their Etsy Store !!

My image from Digital Paper Craft is called "Bobby Boy" so I just had to make a very British Bobby card for a boy !!

I've decoupaged the image several times, Bobby's head, hat, jacket front, collar and pockets.  It's always hard to show this in a photo I find !!  He has been coloured in with  promarkers.  Then added a speech bubble and stamped the Happy Birthday in it and couldn't resist then stamping below my ribbon the Hello,Hello,Hello border !!  I finished off with the red and black brads and coloured a piece of white card to make the checker border at the bottom.

Want more ideas of what to do with brads and ribbon ??

Then see what the rest of the team at Robyn's Fetish Challenge Blog have  come up with !!  We can't wait to see how creative you lot are !!
Have fun !!

White on White

Want to win "Doctor Tobey" stamp ??

Then to be in with a chance enter our challenge this week at

(image can be coloured)

I love doing white on white and for my card I have used "Toby in Bag " digi stamp.

Remenber... one of the fab things you can do when using a digi stamp is to flip it, which is what I did with the very cute Toby image !!  I would like to say it was a design feature, but I did it by mistake and is NOW a design feature !!

Toby has been coloured in with pastel promarkers and I have used a spellbinders die to cut the heart matting squares. I embossed a piece of white card with the small flowers and cut it into smallers squares to fit inside the backing heart squares. The butterflies were cut on my Cricut.

This would make a lovely Easter or  New Baby card as well as a Birthday card.

Check out the what rest of the team at Crafty Sentiments Designs have for you and why not enter !! Remenber if you use a Crafty Sentiments design then you get enter twice !!

Christmas in January

Well it's felt abit like that here in the UK, we had snow and then it was gone,  now it's here again  !!

The lovely crafty crew over at C.R.A.F.T challenges ask a few of us girls at Robyn's Fetish if we would like to join them this week as GDT for their " Christmas in January" challenge !! Thanks girls !!

So for my card I have used " My Mittens" which can be found HERE in the Robyn's Fetish shop.

What else would you put an image called My Mittens onto, but a mitten shaped card !! For that I just handrew the shape onto a folded piece of white card and covered it with some christmas papers by Stampin Up.  And guess what......I've fussy cut , decoupaged and paper piece the cute cat and her dress and mittens !!  The sentiment was hand written by me also.

Thats another christmas card to go in my box for this year !!

I had fun this week playing with " Friends For Ever "

I decided to make a paw print easel card by cutting out the paw shapes on my cricut and then making a hinge at the back to join them together, not an easy shape to do this with, but hay ho I do love a challenge  !!

Printed my image several times so I could cut the dog, cat and duck's head out to then colour and raise up at on the bottom paw .  From The Heart, Happy Birthday was also cut on my cricut. This happy bunch were all coloured in using promarkers.

Just one fun, happy and very differnt card which I must admit,  I just love it !!

I wish one and all a very


It's a strange thing, but our challenge at 

" NEW "

New year, new stash, new home...

I decided to make a New Home card using " Bird House "

I really love doing lots of mat and layering of cordinating papers and I have used four papers from a paper pack by Basic Grey called " Konnichiwa ".

The lovely Bird House digi image has been printed several times so I could decoupage the roof , roses, bird, worm and cute little bee.  All coloured in with promarkers and a bit of stickles added to the roses.  Used a spellbinders die to cut banner and a Marianne die to cut swirls.  Made a few rolled roses,  seeing I haven't made them for a while !!

What a bright and cheerful way to welcome someone to their new home !!

The team have many more inspiring " New "projects to show you, so pop over to the
