Special Birthday............

Hello there!

It's time for another challenge at Digi Choosday Challenge where the theme for the challenge is ALWAYS 'Anything Goes'! The discount on the MAIN BLOG is only available for a limited time, so make sure you grab it and take advantage!

The theme for this weeks challenge for the design team is Birthday - yes it is our very own Anjie's very special birthday - HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!

I'm on a bit of a Winnie love fest at the moment and make no apologies for it, she is the cutest! This week I opted for Winnie Fruit Punch Collection and this week I coloured the image 'One For You' which you can find here.  This is the perfect image for birthdays, although knowing our birthday girl in question, I'm not sure it's 'One for You' more like 'One for Each Hand!'.

I used papers from the Octavia Frosted Winter Collection which you can see here and also the Winnie in Wonderland Collection which you can see here.

I coloured the image with my copic markers.

She looks like she is having fun doesn't she!

Now why don't you pop on over to the main blog and see what the rest of the design team have come up with. You can also see how to join in the fun with us!

See you soon!

Hugs

Puddle Jack..........

Hi there!

It's a new challenge at Colour Crazy Challenge Blog and this week we are being sponsored by the wonderful Little Miss Muffet Stamps (LMMS).

This week I was given the cutest little duck to play with, he's called 'Puddle Jack' and you can find him here.

I kept my little duck white so to achieve that look, I coloured parts of him grey with my copic markers, mostly C3, C1 and the blender pen.  His boots and brolly and coloured with B12, B18, B24 and for the violets, V000, V02, V13 and V08.

I made a scalloped easel card on my Silhouette Portrait with papers from Polkadoodles Octavia Moonfly which you can find here.


Is he not just THE cutest little duck? I adore him! I cut him out twice and coloured him twice to give some dimension on the card.

So pop back to the main challenge blog to see how you can take part and what you can win from our wonderful sponsor LMMS this week.  Remember you need to have hand coloured the project but our theme for challenge entrants is Anything Goes, so come on over and join in the fun!

See you soon!

Easter!

Hello!

It's discount day on the main blog - yes it is Digi Choosday day and this week the design team are all about Easter! Of course the theme for challenge entrants is Anything Goes, as long as the project is made by you.

For an Easter theme I had to use the Winnie Sugar Sprinkles Collection, which you can find here.  I opted to use the too adorable 'Happy Easter' image, which you can find as an individual purchase, here.

I made a cute little scalloped favour box on my Silhouette Portrait and covered it with a paper from Work & Play 10 - Country Life. You can see the whole collection here or the paper I used, in this bundle here.

I cut the precoloured image out to decorate the front, I cut it twice to give some dimension.

I decorated it the same on the other side to keep it pretty.  All I needed to add was some of my own ribbon from my stash and voila - the cutest little easter favour box.

Now it may or may not have some choccie eggs in it.........who am I to say??  ;)

Now don't forget to go back to the main challenge blog to see the rest of the inspiration from the design team.

See you soon!

Little Chick...........

Hello there!

We have a new challenge on the main Colouring Crazy Challenge Blog today and this week we are sponsored by Pickled Potpourri Designs.

For this challenge I got to play with the oh so cute 'Chick Chick Hooray' which you can find here.

I made a cute little box using papers from Polkadoodles Winnie Fruit Punch Collection, which I think are perfect for this little easter chick!

I coloured this little cutie with my copic markers.
Copic markers: Y11, Y15, Y17, YR14, YR18, C02

I cut out the chick twice and layered him on the topper to give some dimension. I cut the sentiment separately and added to the box.

I think this is the perfect little box for easter eggs to be hiding in! 

Pop over to the main blog to see what prize you can win from our fabulous sponsor this week and how you can join in the fun with us. Remember it's an 'Anything Goes' theme for you as long as the project is hand coloured by you, you can play too!

See you soon

Spring Has Sprung..........

Hello!

It is DIGI CHOOSDAY Challenge day - remember to snap that code up on the main challenge blog, it only lasts for a limited time!

Our theme for challenge entrants is Anything Goes but for the design team our challenge this week was 'Spring Has Sprung'.

For this challenge I decided to play with my Silhouette Portrait and opted to make this fun pop up card. Of course for the theme Spring Has Sprung I had to play with Winnie and this collection is 'Fruit Punch' which you can find here as a complete download collection.

The papers, sentiment and character are all from Fruit Punch, you can get the character 'Dandelion Days' on her own here if you like.


I love this card, I love the pop up flowers but I genuinely don't think it would work so well without those fabulous papers!

Remember to pop back to the main blog to see the rest of the inspiration from the design team and see how YOU can join in the fun! Your project just needs to be handmade by you.

Hope you like my Dandelion Days pop up card and I'll see you soon!

Use a Design Sheet...........

Hello!

It's Digi Choosday Discount Day - so make sure you are on the main challenge blog TODAY to ensure you get that bargain code!

Now for those of you here for the challenge, your theme is 'Anything Goes' but for the design team our challenge this week was 'Use a Design Sheet'.

For this challenge I went for the Helga Collection again - you can find the whole collection here or this design sheet is available as a double here.

She's so cute, I went for one of the backing papers from the same collection, you can buy this bundle here if you just want the papers.

From the design sheet, I used one of the main toppers, the roses border, the banner, the cute basket and two additional flowers for effect.


This was a quick and easy card to make using my Silhouette Portrait and the handy guide in the bundle that lets you cut on your machine with no fuss.

Remember to pop along to the main challenge and see the rest of the inspiration from the rest of the team and the rules for our challenge.

Thanks for popping by and I'll see you again soon!

GDT spot on Through The Craft Room Door.........

Hello!

Well a few weeks ago I won the challenge on 'Through The Craft Room Door's' weekly challenge and not only was I delighted with my win but part of the prize is the opportunity to have a Guest Design Team spot for a challenge week, obviously when asked if I wanted to play - I said YES please!

The lovely Deonna told me for the week I was a GDT that the blog was being sponsored by the amazingly talented Ching Chou Kuik, and I was allowed to play with the beautiful 'Spring Dreaming' which you can find here.


She is so beautiful, I coloured her with copic markers:

I coloured Spring Dreaming with the following markers:
Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, E04
Hair: E53, E55, E57
Towel: R20, R21, R22, R27
Flowers: V000, V02, V13, V08

I made a 7x7 card with plain purple cardstock I had in my stash, I used the Nitwit Collection Snow Princess which I have in an 8x8 paper pad.  I added some purple ribbon and some paper flowers to complete the card,


I love how this turned out. I would like to thank Deonna and TTCRD for the lovely opportunity of playing along with you this week, it's been great fun, thank you so much! 

See you soon
