DT Stamp Something and DT Stampin' for the Weekend

*edited to add a late PaperPlay at the bottom, 'tis a tight ship I run, LOL!!*

Good morning and happy Friday!! I have 2 cards to share with you today, both DT submissions but first I must share a little happy news... We were so impressed by our guest, Heidi, that we simply couldn't let her go and happily she accepted our offer to be a full time DT member on SFTW! Yay!! If you haven't been to Heidi's blog already please do go check it out. She's only 12yrs old and makes the most wondeful cards.

Now.. on to business, lol. On Stampin' for the Weekend we have a sketch & colour combo challenge for you.

We are being sponsored by Crafts and Me

and they have kindly given a Sweet Pea stamp as the prize for this challenge.
So here's the sketch and you must use the colours Yellow and Blue

I fould this cute image on Phindy's Place where there are some gorgeous digital images. I coloured using copic markers. 

The papers are from a DCWV matt stack that I've had for about 2yrs!! I think they are called Pocket full of Posies. I made my little butterfly and the corner piece with MS punches and the sentiment is Studio G.


Over on Stamp Something Challenges we would like to see your Summery Somethings!! 

We are being sponsored by La La Land Crafts and the team are each showcasing these cuties today. My image is called Bubble LaLa and my summery something is my papers, which actually reminded me of wallpaper - perfect for the bathroom, lol!! 

Again, I used copic markers to colour my image and lots of stickles for the bubles and water. The adage tickets is by Tim Hotlz and it's been inked with Brushed Cordoroy inks. 

I used the sketch on Sunday Sketch and Stamp when making this card so am entering into their challenge :)


PaperPlay are challenging you to get out your old stash and get using it!! Those old papers you bought but never got around to using, the embellies you shy away from, the embossing powder that scares you silly.. lol.. we want you to rescue it from a life of dust and darkness :) 

My papers are really old - they are Making Memories "Poolside and Greenhouse" and I bought them at a craft event a long time ago. I can't remember how long ago :S

My image is a SUPER cute digi by Meljens Designs.. isn't he just gorgeous?! Coloured again with copics.. oh how my inks are being neglected.. shameful!!

I used oval nesties to cut him out and mounted it on Labels 10 nesties, love it! The sentiment is from SeeD's and the pin was in my stash.. not sure what brand.

The theme of this month's challenge on Simon Says Stamp papercraft planet group is OH BOY so I am entering my sweet baby boy card. 

Well that's it from me for today. I have classes tomorrow that I'm frantically trying to get ready for. Have a great weekend and happy crafting!
