Challenge 2 over at Bildmalarna

Over at the Bildmalarna challenge site their 2nd challenge is 'Blue' so rather than a card I decided to decorate a photo frame that I have had in my stash for quite some time now :O).  In fact I have 3 of these frames, 3 gorgeous grandkiddies so perfect for each one of them! 

This is Daisy who we had the whole weekend - thoroughly enjoyed having her except for the 4:30 wake up call from her - and what is on the tv at that ricdiculous time in the morning - NOTHING!!!

My Bildmalarna stamp has been coloured in with Polychromos pencil and blended with Sansador, the butterfly and lace edging is from my new Magnolia diecuts and the paper is by Prima. 

Thanks for looking  Polly xx

Creative Scrappers - challenge sketch 160

I'm a big fan of Creative Scrappers and although a follower and avid watcher I never seem to have the time to join in with their challenges - but our little break to Robin Hoods Bay last weekend must have done the trick as I got myself organised and played!!!

Their sketch was by the talented scrapper Amarilys so I got out my Limited Edition kit from My Creative Scrapbook and got scrapping!!  This photo is of my daughter Viki and her friend Claire on a night out a few months ago.  The papers are by Stella Rose and as usual are perfect for distressing and inking.  The butterflies are from a fab blog called What a Beautiful Mess' .   And here it is....

I printed the butterflies onto acetate to get that lovely feel of translucency to them

Sunday Sketch & Stamp challenge

And my last card for today is for the Sunday Sketch & Stamp challenge - another lovely sketch to followby the talented Lisa!!! 

I have used papers from Wild Asparagus by My Minds Eye and all these have been distressed with a pair of scissors.  The lovely Bildmalarna stamp has been coloured in with Polychromos Pencils and blended with Sansador.  The flowers are from The Hobby House (as was the stamp) and as was the lovely velvet ribbon :O).  And here it is....

Well thats it for now - thanks for looking

Create for fun challenge

A day off today so after a morning of housework, shopping, etc I had time this afternoon to make some cards for 3 challenges that I wanted to enter.

Over at Create for Fun there was a lovely sketch to follow so here is my take on it.  I have used papers from Prima, a Gorjuss Girl stamp both available from Grimsby Crafts.  The papers were distressed with a pair of scissors, Gorjuss Girl was coloured in with Polychromos Pencils and blended with Sansador, the leaves are from a diecut as is the ribbon.  And here it is....

BildMalarna - Challenge 1

Ordered one of these cute stamps off the internet in the week so today with it being a long weekend for us both I decided to treat hubby to lunch at the restaurant next to The Hobby House and do a little craft shopping for afters!!  Bought 4 more of these stamps :O)!!!!  What with Sassy Stamps and now these - feel another addiction coming on!!!

Anyway whilst bloghopping for challenges the other night I found that there is Challenge site for these lurvely stamps - Challenge 1 Anything Goes - so I made time this afternoon to have a go and create something other then a card and this is what I made! 

A little door hanger for the little grandkiddies! 

I coloured little Mimosa 'from me to you' with Polychromos Pencils and Sansador, the petals were diecuts from Nellies Multi frames, a leaf flourish, daisy stamp, a piece of ribbon and... think thats it!!!

Right off to link to the challenge!  Have a good weekend
