JCBC Challenge Wk33/Polkadoodle Challenge No1

Sketch by Vanessa

Good morning my lovelies, this is my card for the JCBC challenge this week, its my first card after a long break, thank you ladies for giving me time to sort out things this end, i appreciate your patience, i am glad to be back on board and hopefully things will rermain calm for a while!

I love this cute sugar nellie image and yellow is definitely a favourite colour of mine at the moment. I have coloured this image using the prisma colours. I have used my Marvey Le Plume blender pen to blend the colours, it works a treat and much easier than the sansador and paper stamps that i have previously tried!

What a great sketch this week by Vanessa, i love it, well done hunny.

Another New Challenge - Polkadoodle Challenge Week 1

While catching up with my blog hopping i came across another new blog challenge. This looks another great challenge blog ladies, go take a look for yourself, by clicking in the blinkie below.

To celebrate the launch of the challenge blog there is this fabulous blog candy up for grabs, we all love to add to our stash don't we??? and what a great selection here.

To be in with a chance of winning you have to make a card following this sketch. What a great sketch it is too.

Here is my card for this weeks challenge.

This is one of my all time favourite Rachelle Miller stamps, you may have seen my previous card using this cute image! I have coloured this in using my pro makers, and the papers are from Making Memories.

The flower is another retro flower punch and ive tried to create dimension to the toadstalls by glazing them.

Unfortunately it looks like we've come to the end of our lovely weather spell here in colchester. It is a very gloomy overcast day. Nothing much planned except some crafting and hopefully some more blog hopping. Hope the weather is better wherever you are, enjoy the rest of the bank holiday weekend and back tomorrow with another card for the Creative Crew Challenge.
Big hugs Linda x
