A little romance

The other day over at Faery Ink there was a special One Day Fae freebie of the delightful image called Doodlebug Valentine Lolliop, I couldn't resist!  So I have made this card with her and I have used my chameleon pens and had a go at colouring pleats, need a lot more practice but it was fun trying!  Paper is from a pad from The Range teamed up with red cs, die a little heart banner and the flower is a Sheena Douglass die 'Floral Burst' which came with the new edition of Crafters Inspiration.  The button is made with my epiphany punch (don't use it enough!) and finished off with a stamped sentiment.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Crafty Gals Corner #106 ~ Add a heart
Brown Sugar #234 ~ ATG
Creative Fingers #123 ~ ATG
Sweet Stampin' ~ Dies and Punches

Just for you

Just thought I'd share this card with you, I'm not totally sure about it! lol  I wanted to go with a WoW theme and was looking through my embossing folders and saw the one with all the keys on it so my mind went 'umm steampunk'  and that's how this grew!  rounded the corners of the base layer then cut the circle piece on the Cricut which was then embossed with gears.  The four diamonds were also cut on the Cricut then I stamped them with and old stamp finished off with an embossed sentiment.

Cowgirl

The beautiful cowgirl image I have used for my card today is from The East Wind and is called 'Cowgirl Portrait' and I had printed her off quite some time ago and I had coloured her face before I had the operation on my hand and just happened across her again so got busy with my chameleons and finished her off.  Used some great wood effect paper from Bearly Mine Designs which I teamed up with some Kraft cs.  The fringed ribbon I bought a little while ago and thought it would be perfect for this image then I had a good root around in some of my older stash, I was looking for some cowboy boots die cuts that I thought I had but apparently not anymore! lol Instead I found the metal label and the red star gems and I finished off with a red brad and peel off sentiment.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Crazy Challenge #239 ~ 3 of a kind ~ 3 star gems
Crafty Gals Corner #105 ~ use patterned paper

Warm Wishes

Bought the January New Release set over at The East Wind and just had to get making.  So here is my first card using the set and the image is called 'Lucy Loo Winter Birch Forest' I really wanted to keep this nice and simple and let the image speak for itself so I found a great background paper from Raspberry Road Designs, coloured Lucy Loo using my Chameleons (I think it takes me a bit longer to colour but I am enjoying the results oh and the time spent colouring! lol) I then cut a frame using the Cricut, stamped the sentiment then embossed the frame with some clouds which I inked slightly with some white ink.  Finished off with a little cloud outline die cut.
