The image is 'toy car'.
The papers are from a Raspberry Road collection - Travelogue.
The sentiment is from a Lilly of the Valley sentiment set.



This little fella is called Whootie the Owl.

What a week!

Not exactly as restful a half term as I had hoped. My poor mum is really struggling after her accident so I've been tied up with her for the week. So much so that I didn't think I would manage a card for todays CRAFT Challenge.
Our challenge this week is to use no designer papers and to be honest this is the first time I have ever tried this.
The card was done really quickly using this beautiful little fella from
 Meljen's designs who is one of our generous sponsors this week.
Click here to check out the fantastic prizes.



He is coloured with spectrum noir pens rather than Promarkers this time.
The brown paper is from an A4 envelope which has been embossed using a mica mask. This is the debossed side.
The blue punched paper was from a page in a magazine and the blue die cut was the insert from a gift box. 
The blooms and corner are from wild orchids.

This is a really fun challenge so do join in.
Pop over to my fellow teamies blogs to see how inventive and creative they have been.
Have a great day.

The gorgeous papers were part of a set from Stitchy Bear during their fabulous January sale and are called sweet melodies.
Flowers and lace are from Wild Orchid Crafts.

Love is in the air

Morning all,
Love is in the air today over at INCY WINCY designs but with a difference.

This week we would like you to combine a little  Love with the colours, Pink, Black  and White.

I opted for a heart easel card for my DT card. I haven't made one of these for about two years - the last one was for my niece's birthday. 


The digi is called Angel - I love you and is from our fabulous sponsors Bugaboo  Digital Stamps

Their generous prize is 7 digi stamps - they have so many gorgeous stamps you will be spoilt for choice.

My angel is coloured with ProMarkers.
The backing paper is part of a download set  from printable heaven and has exactly the right colours in there so I was lucky to have this in my 'computer' stash.
Digi papers are so good because you never run out of your favourite paper!!
As always the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. 
The sentiment ticket  is a freebie from here
The ribbon and pearls are from stash and the heart border is made with a Friskars punch.
