The Robyns Fetish Challenge #161 "Birds"

Were did that week go ????

Now for the weather report...
very cold, breezy, rain and then yesterday afternoon abit of warm sunshine !! 
Just crazy !!

Hope you peeps are having loads of fun this bank holiday weekend !! If you want some more fun why not join in our " Birds" challenge at Robyns Fetish !! Its being sponsored by Fred She Said with a prize of 3 digiital stamps of the winners choice from the Fred She Said store

My Fred She Said image is called "Blue Jays"
I amazed myself with my colouring in of the Blue Jay !! Don't laugh I had to look it up to see what colours it was DOH ....I think the hint was in the name.

Anyway started off by using a shaped white card blank from craftwork cards, then cut a square piece of white card and embossed it and edged with blue promaker and mounted onto card front. Printed my Blue Jays image several times so I could fussy cut loads of the flowers and leaves. Coloured all the images using promarkers as usual. Mounted my main image onto another piece of white card which I had already done a blue border round and then foam mounted this onto the embossed panel. Then arranged all my flowers and leaves round my main image.

Loads more inspiration to be found on The Robyns Fetish Challenge Blog by the rest of the team !!

Miracles do happen

On The Square

How is everyone then ??

Did you enjoy the bit of sunshine over the weekend ??  Glad to say I did !!

The lovely girls over at A Twist Of Faith asked a few of The Robyns Fetish girls if we would like to join them as GDT's this week for their fab "On the Square" challenge !!

For my card I have used "My Spring Garden" from The Robyn Fetish Digial Stamps and More store

To make my patchwork backing paper, I cut 1" squares of paper from four colours of the same patterened paper and then glued them onto my card adding some faux stitching. My "In The Garden" image was coloured in using my fab promarkers to match my backing paper.  The "Grateful" quote was stamped using a Stampin Up stamp. Finished off with making a pink ribbon bow with another of the flower heads from the image.

Thanks you ladies for inviting me to join you this week at

The Robyns Fetish Challenge # 160 "Four Legged Friends"

The Robyns Fetish Challenge is being sponsored this week by Oak Pond Creations with a lovely prize of 3 digital stamps of the winners choice.

If like me you love animals then our "Four legged Friends" challenge theme will be right up your street !!

My four legged friend  from Oak Pond Creations is called " Snack Cat" 

A fun birthday card, but how many times have we said this girls .......

To make my sunray effect backing paper I have used three different kraft papers by Craftwork Cards and inked the edges using a distress ink. Then pleated a strip from one of the papers to put along the bottom. Added a piece of velvet ribbon and then coloured  a very thin strip of white card to match the cat and glued it on top. The cat was coloured in using promarkers and then decoupaged. Stamped the letters to make up my sentiment onto white card then coloured in cream using a promarker and then out lined eack letter with a black pen and cut out. The fab wood embelishments I was lucky enough to win from HobbyCutz , check them out !!

Cute mini

Up for grabs is this fab stamp called

"Tea Party Anyone"
 Now here is that cute mini I was talking about...

My little book is only 1 1/2" x 2 1/2" and  is held closed by a belly band. Made the bottle top charm which has Benson "Bundle of Hearts" digi image in. That's what I love about digi stamps you can have then any size !!

Inside I have a lovely friendship poem and have also used another Benson digi called "Just For You". I've printed off the flower over and over again in different sizes.

All the images have been fussy cut out and coloured in with good old promarkers, added a bit of lovely pink velvet ribbon and a few beads to finish off !!

The fun set I have used is called

I really did have fun making my card as I love fussy cutting and making a scene !!

Printed the sand dune and palm trees onto a piece of A4 white card and coloured with promarkers. The cut it into 4 pieces and distressed the edges with tearing and a knife. Then on another piece of white card printed all the other images in several sizes and also coloured in with promarkers and then fussy cut each one out.  Arranged them onto my 4 panels to make the scene and glued in place.  Then stuck the 4 panels onto a piece of kraft card which I had also  torn the edges and distressed with a knife. Finished off by stamping the Yo Ho Ho and Happy Birthday Captain along the bottom and then tied it up with a piece of distressed ribbon hopeing it looked like a pirates treasure map !!
