X-mas Card #3

Good arvo to all I have another X-mas card to show... Lucky I don't give to many out as I have only done 3 and Christmas is all but here...
This one was made for my two sisters I have made them a card to share this year with a voucher to buy a bottle of Bailey's to share as well, due to not being able to be together at Christmas this year I still get to have a drink with them..
This card is made with a mi of four digi stamps, The emerald Garden Faires Larakins, Steampunk Twisty Tree, KennyK X-Mas Accessories- Christmas Ball and North Pole Post. DSP is SU! and Digi sentiment is a Biz Bec's I think.. I have found a couple of challenges for this card to enter go have a look by clicking on the links of the challenge below you might find a challenge that suits your card..

Hi all I have another card for you today.. I have made this card for a friend who is turning 30 and we have her party coming up soon, so I am getting in early with her card as I tend to leave it to the last minute...
I have also made this card with a challenge in mind my favourite challenge place these days Saturated Canary... I love these images and this one Zorana, a dancing gypsy. My daughter convinced me into buying after I said to her "that one would be a challenge to colour" so here she is my first attempt at Zorana and a challenge she was.
The challenge is to 1 image, 2 DSP and 3 embell... My 1 image Zorana, 2 DSP are K& Company Blue Awning and the green is MMI, 3 Flowers Metal & Perls...


Thanks Vicki

Challenge Card

Hi I have spent most of the day to myself and took the chance to make a card.
This one is made to enter the new challenge at Saturated Canary and a few others if I can find something she fits. I have used Penny A Ragamuffin.. She is so cute and after a few goes I finally coloured one that I would put on a card..
This card is also going tomorrow for Catlin next door for her Birthday... Not the best photo still trying to get that part right I can take photos of my kids but not my cards if anyone has a tip or two they could give me that would be great...
I have used My Minds Eye for DSP.

Just a Hello

Good afternoon something new for you today.
I have become a new member of the Outlawz website in the last couple of days, this is a challenge website so if you like to enter a challenge or 2 go on over and have a look but don't take your time if you head over this week a party is going on with lots of prizes to be won... The girls here are friendly and very welcoming I have had so many hellos to welcome me to the site so I figure what better way to say hello back to the girls than to start with a card and enter it in my very first challenge..
Here is my card with "Just a Hello" to you all at The Outlawz and thank you for the warm welcome I will be sure to answer all your welcomes very soon...
Here is my entry into Tuesday"s Color challenge the colors are below.. I have used a Emerald Faeries Image...I hope I have done everything right to enter...

Forever always

Good morning to all out there I am going to be quick to with my post because I have to go out and I want to get two post up for the day before I have to get ready...
So here is a card I made for a friend to give away as a wedding card I think she was happy with it.. I have found a couple of challenges for it to so that is a bonus...
I have used A digi image from Tiddly Inks called You and Me I love their images and have a very big list to buy...
for something different for me I have embossed the edge of the image to give it a bit more of a shine and kick. I really like how this looks and can see me going through a bit of silver embossing power over the next few cards lol...
All the DSP is Kaiser Craft love their 6x6 pads make life so easy...
Well I hope you all have a good weekend I will be back with another card soon...

Hi all I cant believe how fast the mths are going by. I have been very slack on my blog visits as well as getting the time to sit and make a card..
My first card made in almost 2mths, I sat down on Friday with my image already coloured and started putting this card together, I colour first and make my cards to the image, I know most pick the DSP first and colour to that, I am going to try it that way one day but for now just getting an image finished to place on a card is a challenge for me...

So Challenger's to fit my Special Friend card are:

Sweet Blossom

Good afternoon all I hope everyone is having a good day, I am because I have had all morning to sit in a quiet house & make this card..
This is my second card made using the prismacolor pencils I am starting to get the hang of it but my camera (or maybe me not being able to used camera to it's full potential) doesn't seem to show the card for what it really looks like. I have taken a close-up of Kissy Mae to see if that helps, I don't normally enlarge my coloured images maybe because that shows all the faults in the colouring lol..

Birthday Card

The parties have started for Charlotte again, another year of making cards & buying gift's. I have made a smaller card then normal not sure why just did & with a smaller card comes less add-on.
I have coloured Some Odd Girls Fairy Fly Away Mae in with Prisma pencils this is my very first completed image using pencils, I am normally a copic girl but wanted to try something new. I wasn't going to put this card on my blog or enter it in any challenges being my first but then thought we all have to start somewhere and it is fun to look back and see how we evolve over time so here is my, first I hope to improve with practice if you have any tips for me I would love to hear them..

As you may or may not know my sister has just spent the last year travelling around Australia with her husband and kids. I got to spend some time with Michelle when they came through at Christmas time on their way to Melbourne to collect furniture they had in storage as they have decided to settle in Brisbane near my other sister Deanna..
Any way long story short I got to sit down with Michelle to look at some of the amazing photo's she has taken of this great country of ours & I wanted to share my favorites one's with you. I would love to get some comments on them as I am trying to work out which one I should get printed onto a canvas for myself..
If you happen to like any email me as I know Michelle is thinking about selling them or if you would like to see more of her great shoots click Here to go to her blog that she has kept for the whole trip..
Cheers Vic

There are more but these are my top pick..
