Happy Friday!!

This week on Stamp Something Challenges we'd like to see some Funny Somethings on your project.

Our sponsor is Sunshine & Giggles

I used a super-cute, super-funny image by Mo Manning called Sumpin's Up. I heat embossed and coloured it with distress inks. This is my first Digital Pencil digi and it certainly won't be my last. Laserjet printer on the list for my birthday :D

I also printed out the sentiment, made it into a tag and tied it on using string. The tag is up on pop dots which gives a 3D effect. I embellished with some buttons, a ribbon tab & pale green pearls.

My papers are Basic Grey Origins. I wasn't sure about these at all when I saw them online but IRL they are much nicer.. they do remind me somewhat of BG Mellow.

I am also entering this into Charisma Cards Challenge with their theme fruity colours (lemon & lime)

Tools used: Cuttlebug, Nestabilities Circle/Scallop Circle, Crop-a-dile. 

Don't forget to pop over to my very talented team member's blogs to see what they've made for this challenge. Links over there -->

Anyone for Anya??

There is a colour combo challenge over on Anyone for Anya? this week - Black & White +1. I chose pink :D

I used one of the new Miss Anya Love images and coloured her using distress inks. I added heart gems to the centre of the flowers and distressed the background with Antique Linen.

I made the cute charm using my patterned paper, glossy accents and Tim Holtz fragments. The trinket pin is also from the TH range. I added some pink scalloped lace and black satin ribbon, love how they went together!! Then finished my card by adding some more heart gems.

This card also fits the Papertake Weekly challenge, Pretty Pink Papertake, so I am entering it into that too.

I will be back later with another card.. I couldn't get online much for the past few days, but I have been busy crafting while running around like a headless chicken.... so I am cramming again, lol !!
