This adorable image is from Digi Doodle Studios.  It's called Snowman Hugs.  I have coloured the image with markers and used Liquid Pearls on their furry bits and as a border around the image.  To give a little extra dimension, I used 2 colours of Liquid Pearls: Platinum for the shadowy areas and White Opal for the brighter areas.

My papers and sentiment are from the KaiserCraft Christmas Wishes pack.  I have distressed all the edges.  I've added a thick ribbon and bow.  The larger glittery snowflake is actually a mini tree decoration, and the smaller ones are Dress It Up buttons.  I've added a few Petite Posies to finish it off.

Hi Everybody!

We have another fabulous challenge starting at Penny's today, with 2 fantastic prizes up for grabs:

will be giving away 4 images of the winner's choice, and

will be giving away a $12 store voucher

I have a Delicious Doodles image to show you today.  It's called Flower Fairy, and I have coloured it with markers.

The image is quite detailed and I wanted it to stand out from the background, so I decided to keep the rest of the card white.

My paper is from the DCWV French Whites pack.  I've added a strip of lace, pearls from Bella! Bling, and flowers from KaiserCraft, 49 and Market, and American Crafts.

You'll be able to find the most wonderful images at both our sponsors' stores, so be sure to pop over to visit them.

To see what the rest of the Design Team have created to inspire you this week, pop back to the challenge blog.

Wishing you a super crafty week!

This beautiful image is from Cute As A Button.  It's called Mermaid Ariana.  She is the current Progressive Challenge freebie on their Facebook Page.

I have coloured the image with markers.  The fishbowl was cut from the Create A Critter Cricut cartridge.  I created a base card using the shape too.  I used markers to give it some contour and depth.  The watery scene was cut using paper from the Heartfelt Creations Under The Sea collection.  I've added 3 little enamel dots as bubbles.

I decided to go with a Z-fold card.  My sky paper is from the Ella & Viv Ethereal pack.  I cut the 2 trees, the grass and the picket fence on my Cameo.  The flowers and bees are Little Birdie stickers.

On the middle leg of the Z, I made a little pocket to hold a message tag.  The tag itself was cut using a Poppy Crafts die.

I hope you'll join us this week, using all your vibrant tones!  To be eligible for this fantastic prize, just use your Winsor & Newton (formerly Letraset) markers (Promarkers; flex, tria, aqua, or metallic), and follow the theme.

Hi there crafters!

We have a super new challenge starting at Digi Choosday today, and along with the challenge, we have a generous discount code waiting for you, valid for 24 hours only!

It's Winter where I am: my favourite time of the year!  It's also the perfect time to start on those Christmas cards, to avoid the end of year rush!

I have a beautiful collection to share with you today.  My image is called Yummy Gingerbread, and it's part of the Winnie Winterland collection.  I've used paper, a sentiment and precoloured trees from the same collection.  I cut the trees out on my Cricut.  I have coloured my image with markers and created a snowy background behind them.  I've inked the edges of all the papers.

My sentiment was cut out using a Spellbinders die.  I've added a strip of wispy stuff, Petaloo flowers and Dress It Up button snowflakes, along with a few extra gems on the sentiment tag.

Polkadoodles has several Christmas collections, so be sure to use today's discount code to stock up and get crafting!  You can use these links to get around:

Hi Everybody!

I have the honour of being a Guest Designer at The Paper Girls this month, and this is my 2nd post for the month.  Your theme for the coming fortnight is:

This card is for a young couple who have just bought their first house.  I have used an image from The Paper Shelter called Moving In Together, and coloured it with markers.  I drew in and coloured a kitchen background for them.  

I have placed them behind a front door, which I cut on my Cameo.  I have placed a sheet of acetate between layers of the door, for the window areas, attached with double sided tape.  I considered placing a few little flowers around the front door, but I actually liked the clean white 'wall' alongside the front door, and decided to leave it as is.  The sentiment area was all stamped from a collection of stamps by Simonne Clay, called Sincere Sentiments.

You can pop back to the Challenge Blog to see what your usual Design Team have created for your inspiration.

I'd like to thank Brittany and the team for allowing me to be part of their wonderfully creative group for this challenge!

Hi There Everybody!

This is your mid-month inspiration for our month-long challenge at Digistamps for Joy!  The theme is Anything Goes, with an optional twist: Show us your creation featuring either Summer or Winter.

Obviously I have gone with a Summer theme!  I've used the super cute Ankle Deep, and coloured her with markers, adding a bit of ocean and sky as a background for her.  My paper is from the KaiserCraft Base Coat pack.  The 3 small seashells are actual shells I collected on our beach.  Everything else on my card is Jolee's

Before I show you a few close-ups of my card, here are some important links for you:
