Pollycraft Challenge #78-Baby it's cold outside

Happy Monday everyone.
It's time for another Pollycraft Challenge and this week the gorgeous Lisa has asked us to create something to the theme of "Baby it's cold outside".
This is Lisa's last challenge with the Pollycraft team. You will be missed hun and it's sad to see you go :(

Here is my easel card.

I know, it looks more like a Spring card but I have used the lovely Sonny Honeycloud - 'Winter' digi image. I have added some white flock to her jacket and some cystals under her feet.
It's quite hard to create a winter card in Australia at the moment as it's so HOT! I even tried to picture myself somewhere cold just to cool down :)

The prize this week is a voucher from

Remember you can used any image to enter the challenge but you must use a Pollycraft inage to win prizes on offer or become a Pollycraft Favourite.

Hope to see you in the challenge this week.

My matching Hanglar card

As promised, here is my matching card to the one I made here earlier this week.

Once again I'm using Kaisercraft English Rose given to me by the gorgeous Jackie. I've used most of the same embellishments too.
This fits the challenge at Crafts 4 Eternity this week which is to use Polka Dots and also the Just Magnolia and Hanglar and Stanglar Challenge which is Going Dotty!!

Hope you like it.

Twin Cards!

When visiting my dearest friend Jackie a couple of weeks ago, she gave me the new Kaisercraft paper pad, English Rose. These are my fav colours, greens and pinks! She knows me so well ;)
We decided to make a card with the inspiration from Bev's card in the Magnolia Mag. (don't ask me which one 'cause it's at Jackie's house!). We also decided to use some CC stamps we both had purchased yonks ago and haven't used much.
This is how my card turned out.

No idea why her hair came out that way in the photo??
We've both used the same paper pack, flowers, leaves, butterfly die and circle dies.
I just love the way they both turned out.
Pop over here to see Jackie's gorgeous card. They're the same but different! hee hee.
Thanks for letting my 'borrow' your crafting goodies lovely lady. Had a blast!!
For those of you who don't visit here often, I don't like cutting out my images but whenever I'm with Jackie there is ALWAYS something she makes me cut out!
Now she didn't make me cut out on the actual card but I had to cut a mask out to stamp over the image. Aaaarrrrgghhhh Jackie, you did it again!! lol.

Hanglar and Stanglar helping my mission!

I'm still carrying on my mission of using pre-coloured and pre-stamped or printed images plus using my cardstock. Well ok, I did cheat a little on this one as my dear friend Jackie gave me a gorgeous paper pad by Kaisercraft, 'English Rose Collection'. Pinks and greens, ooh, she knows me so well! lol.

This image was coloured middle of last year while Jackie and her family were visiting so I thought I'd better give it a home. I have a twin card to match, coming soon.
The lace was from a little shopping trip while visting Jackie last week too. Mmmm, seems I have a few newbies. hee hee.
I'm entering this into the Crafts 4 Eternity challenge. They're asking for string..check, flower..check, and a button..check!
Also entering the Truly Scrumptious Challenge - pink, green, brown. (oh yeah, my fav combo!) and Bizzy Becs Store Blog Challenge.

I've chosen RED for my 'other' colour. I know, I know, I don't do red! Hey but it's for Valentines and the spunky Maurice!!
This is one of the new Valentine images Paula has created for you over at the Pollycraft Store as well as some sentiments. This is 'Maurice-Hot Stuff'. Who am I to disagree??? lol.
I've used the sketch from Friday Sketchers to help me out here and it was lots of fun.

I hope you can join us this week over at Pollycraft Challenges.

Don't tell anyone but I made a bit of a 'boo boo' with the sentiment. lol. I stamped the sentiment 'hugs & kisses' upside down. Ooops!! Don't worry, I fixed it so you wouldn't notice. I stuck a crystal heart on the upside down stamped one. hee hee. But ssshhhh, it's a secret ok?

Pollycraft Challenge #75 "New Things"

Yaaay it's Monday!! NO, I'm not going crazy liking Monday's but joining in the fun at Pollycraft Challenges certainly makes it nicer. It's also my turn to host the challenge over at Pollycraft and I'm 1st off the rank for 2011 and my challenge to you is....
"New Things"
Think of Christmas and some of the new crafting goodies you may have gotten or something you may have had for awhile and not used yet.
Here is my card using the cute little 'Cuthbert in the garden'.

What's new on MY card?
For my birthday waaaay back in October, the gorgeous Kellie gave me a voucher and I was able to purchase Tim Holtz flower die. Thanks Kell :)
What? Yep, that's right. I hadn't used it until I made this card. *slaps own hand*
I'm hoping this challenge will make you srumage around your lost bits and pieces and maybe help you use something in your stash that you haven't used yet.

The prize this week is from Letraset and it's a pack of 5 promarkers. Thanks!

I hope you can join in our 1st challenge at Pollycraft for 2011, hosted by me!!
Good luck.

I'm on a mission!

Guess What? I cleaned my desk. I know right. I found soooo much paper that I've collected over the years (as well as lots of new stuff, hee hee) that I've decided I HAVE TO USE IT!!
Not only that, I have a lot of pre-stamped and pre-coloured images that are just going to waste. So after cleaning my desk I then messed it up again to make some cards!
I don't make many boys/mens cards either so I made 2. Yes, 2!! I know, I just amaze myself sometimes too! lol.
Here is the 1st one.

 This is an image I coloured while visiting my bestie, Jackie, last year. It was my 1st attempt at colouring dark skin. I will have to practice some more. It was fun to try. I also don't like bright red, so this was also a challenge for me. I know, another shocker right??

Here is no. 2.

This is my very 1st boy image I coloured before I even brought my own copics. Jackie kindly shared her precious babies with me and teadiously taught me how to colour and BREATHE at the same time! lol. She definitely needs a medal for patience :)
I'm a green lover but don't like SU Garden Green and guess what this card uses?? Yep, garden green. Another personal challenge completed. Whoo hoo!

So after this huge effort, I'm off on holidays for the next week and a bit. I have some posts scheduled for you to show you the new previews from Tickled Pink Stamps. (I hope they work). Enjoy!!
