Crafts & Me Challenges DT Card.........Charming....

Hello peeps how are you all? For those poorly I wish you all better real soon. This is actually a scheduled post as I have sooooo much to do before the hospital..........mainly cleaning & DT work & a few bits for Jake for school.......can you believe how quick these hols have gone!!
Anyhoo's today of course is time for the new challenges over at Crafts & Me Challenges & this week is us Rockin' Rubbah Girlz & the lovely Trish has chosen the theme which isssss........
Yep as long as there is a charm on your creation then bring it along & join in the fun.
I have inked up another beauty.......she was so glad to see some ink bless her.........

Yes this is the other image I coloured the other day on Kraft card lol. This image is 'Belle of Bon Adventure' by Jasmine Becket-Griffith exclusive to Crafts & Me Store.

Beautiful seam binding ribbon , pretty lace & wooden heart are all from my stash as well as the charm.....I think I may of gotten the charm off Ebay......maybe!! The chain was actually silver & I put some Memories brown ink dye on it & then dried it on using my heat gun..........MAKE SURE YOU LEAVE TO COOL BEFORE TOUCHING.........IT GETS VERY HOT lol.....I can assure you lol.

The fancy edge I used a WOJ border die. The flower I crocheted & put a paper rose with inked edges in the centre & also attached some white pearl flowers at the side.

This is now in my Top 5 fave stamps, she is fabulous to colour I really enjoyed colouring her.
The image has been coloured with Prisma pencils & added stickles to part of her dress. I made a frame around her using Deckled Oval dies & then used Lacy Ovals for the bottom layer & painted it with TH Brass crackle paint.

The card is made from A4 white card. These had a special on over the weekend on A4 card so I stocked up not sure if the special is still on peeps.
Paper I used is Bo Bunny 'Timepiece'. The sentiment is 'Inspire beauty in all that surrounds you' & I cut it out using a tag die I've got & added string.

Well thats it peeps I'm hopefully gettting my cleaning & washing done & waiting for Mr Postie deliver all my bank hol goodies.........well you gotta take advantage of the sales dontcha lol.
Please pop on over here to see my super duper teamies creations they are soooooo talented. We look forward to you joining us this week.

Simply Sassy............Simply For You........

Good evening my lovelies how are you all? Hope you've all had a fab bank hol weekend in the UK. Yesterday we had one of those lovely family days, we chilled all day together snuggled up & watched movies it was just one of those perfect days.............
Today tho I decided to get some crafting done & this morning decided to stop neglecting my Prisma's & practice some more on Kraft card. So I stamped a few images & here is the 1st.
I should really get my un-inked Sugar's done but well this is my fave sassy lassy so.............
Yes I used 'Fairytale' Simply Sassy as she was & still is my fave sassy from the 1st set....
Available of course from Funkykits. I have of course followed the fabulous sketch over at The Sugarbowl with the option of 'For A Girl', I didnt want to go with the typical pink so I went with my fave card colours.

I punched a heart using my MS punch out of kraft & splodged a bit of white paint around the edge & finished with a button & some Bakers Twine. On the strips of kraft I added a strip of Seam Binding ribbon, bakers twine & card candy to each strip.

The flower I crocheted with crochet yarn doubled up & added another button & bakers twine.
Paper is from Magnolia.

The image has been coloured with Prisma pencils & I added stickles to the bottom of her dress.
I cut out 2 Pennant Banners & stamped 'For You' in brown memento ink & threaded bakers twine through them. The card corners were punched out using an MS punch.

I used a 6x6 On The Edge card blank & all white, blue & kraft is A4 card from my stash.

Well I think thats it peeps. I'm gonna finish my rounds on commenting before I go bed as I've got an early start, I have to take my eldest work cus his car is in the garage for its MOT tomorrow as it failed on 2 small jobs.......well 3 but hubby is doing that one. So its mum's taxi to the rescue tomorrow lol.
