We had some wonderful entries last week, thank you to everyone that joined us, please pop to the blog to see the winner and top three, I know the team had a tough time choosing!!!

'Anything Goes' 

This week I have a card I have made for Miss A to take to a party next week - the little one that its going to is very very in love with her Disney Princesses, and so this image was just perfect.  please allow me to introduce to you Genie Avery available here in the store 


Now I coloured her up a few days ago and in all the 'wedding stuff' I appear to have 'disposed' of my notes from colouring her.  The 'Just for You' is a stamp from LOTV and the Name is cut on the cameo. The roses are from a die I have, I have rolled them very tightly.  The swirls are also a Die,  All in all I do love the finish on this card!

So Lucky!

Evening, well I have to say I really didn't think I would be on this much of a roll today, It appears that taking some time out to blog is making me much more productive! I dread to think how many creations I haven't shared with you :( 

Anyway I'm back today with a bit of a different creation for me, well its still a card, but its a bit 'green'….


When linking up to some challenges yesterday I saw that there are many 'green' themes out there at the moment, and so I thought it would do me some good to make a card with lots of green! I have used the adorable Shamrock Ellie Rubber Stamp from The Paper Nest Dolls


Sh was coloured with Copics; 

Skin and Hair;
E50, E51, E21, E93
E33, E35, E37

Greens and Greys;
G40, G43, G46, 
YG03, YG17, YG67
T1, T2, T3

I didn't really know what sort of green to go with and so I chose to colour with lighter colours and then take the matting paper to the darker green.  The flowers are from my stash, mostly Wild Orchid Crafts, the shamrock banner, the tiny shamrocks in the flowers and the 'Lucky' were cut on my cameo.  I added a little bit of ribbon from my stash around one of the layers - If I'm right I think it was an SU one!

 Now although the card is very 'St Patricks Day' I'm sending it to someone that has done so much to help someone in my life recently as I am lucky for all they have done :)

I would like to enter this card to the following challenges; 

Marker Pop - CH #38 - Lucky Green
Di's Digi Designs - Make it Green
Open Minded Challenges - Something Green
Really Reasonable Ribbon - Green and Ribbon 

Thanks so much for stopping by, I do hope if you have a moment you will leave me a comment :) Hope to see you again soon

So over to my creation, I'm so excited that I'm now able to work with some of the new releases over at The Paper Nest Dolls, This week I have chosen to work with the adorable Easter Bonnet Avery for my creation this week.


I know your all thinking that Easter is a way off but really its not! She was so lovely to colour, I chose to use some bright colours on her using my copics;

Now I know you can't see much of it, but I have added some lace behind my image - I wish I had been a bit braver and added some more! The papers are from Bazzill Basics and its called Vintage Marketplace, i have to say its one of my favourite paper stacks! 

The sentiments are a mix of Lili of the Valley and Whiff of Joy all stamped onto kraft card stock to match the matting of my other papers.  The flowers are from my stash, mainly Wild Orchid Crafts, I did get a bit brave and tried to mix my flowers up a bit with the help of one of the girls on the team :)  

I had to add some butterflies to this one too, I used some of the odds of paper left over with my Martha Stewart punch, I then added some gems behind them to add some sparkle :) Now I'm so in love with this spring like card that I would like to enter it into the following challenges; 

Sunday Stamper - All things bright and Beautiful
Allsorts - Spring is Coming
Fantasy Stampers - Spring Colours

The Paper Nest Dolls - Anything Goes

Good Morning, I know its been far too long since I have blogged - I'm think I may have mentioned to you that I have myself a little job, so with that I had to take my leave from a lot of my DT work, not only that but my sister gets married in a few weeks so I'm up to my eyes with all of that too!!! 
But I promise you are in for a bit of a treat from me today! 

Anyway back to what I'm here for!  So today marks the beginning of a new challenge over at The Paper Nest Dolls - Thank you to everyone that joined in with out last challenge, we had some wonderful entries - pop over to the blog to see if you were a lucky winner!!

So over to the theme, we have the normal 'anything goes', but this time we have a little twist on it for you :) Although the main theme is anything goes, we would love it if we could see some creations with some 

'Fancy Folds'

Yep anything that has a bit more than your normal card fold, we would LOVE to see it. 

Now I will be honest and admit that I forgot the folds thing - however I do still have a creation for you this week!!  And if the weather here is anything to go by, I hope she will cheer you up! 


I have used the adorable Posh Princess available here in the store - I really wanted to make her stand out from the crowd on this occasion - so I used lots of reds - even her hair is red!  I had so much fun colouring her up that I forgot to write down the combo's :( 

The papers are from one of my favourite stacks - so favourite that I used every sheet in the stack and have no more :( I decided to keep the red thing going by using that as my matt colour.  The flowers are all from my stash, mainly a mix of Wild Orchid Crafts, the sentiment is from Lili of the Valley.  

I would like to enter this bright and cheery card into the following challenges;

613 Avenue Create - Anything Goes
Challenges 4 Everybody - Anything Goes
Colour Me Creative - Flaming Red

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope I may have inspired you to join us over at The Paper nest Dolls :)
