Colourful bling with wings

Quickie card tonight, which is a friend's birthday card.

She loves Tinkerbell, and all things pink and girlie!

The image is a Tink colouring page, the card and papers are from Craftwork Cards.

I would like to enter this in the following challenges

The Stamping Boutique - Winged Things
Totally Gorjuss - Bling It On

Lots of WIP, need to get some more stuff finished!

Making the most of the holidays!

Three projects finished and a few more in planning!

First, a quickie ATC just in time for the Royal Wedding -

Second, a birthday card for a young girl, done as a request for a friend at work.  One of the in planning projects is a matching boys' card!

I love the new gorjuss stamps!  This is one of the clear ones, called "Little Heart".  I must admit, she was an impuse purchase,  but she's so cute!  I've got a few other coloured ones ready to play with as well!

Finally, I have another request card, which I'd also like to enter in some challenges.  It's a Civil Partnership card, for a friend's sister.  Not the easiest card to make, but I'm happy with it!

I ♥ Promarkers - Anything Goes
Passion For Promarkers - White on White

I had planned on entering it in the Polkadoodles challenge, but it closed at lunchtime!  Trust me!

If I get half as much done while I'm off as I'm planning, then I'll have loads to upload here next week!

Quickie, and check out the candy!

Got loads of projects on the go, just need to get them photographed before sending to recipients!   Some of them have to stay hidden til after they've been received, too!

Couple I can show, one is a birthday card for my niece

Image is hippy chick from Simply Sassy, papers are Prima, with core'dinations distressed as backing, and the style is from a tutorial at Joanna Sheen's site.

Second is an altered box, from a challenge on Crafty Mess.  It's a box, with a matching address box in it, and it's MINE!  For once I've done something for ME!

And, before I go, Donna at Bearly Mine has some VERY generous blog candy, so pop over and visit her!

Quickie Challenge Entry

Oops, didn't post here last month, but did upload to my Trimcraft Gallery.

Tonight is a quickie.  I got a brayer at the GNPE last month, and have been playing about.  Finally I have something I'm happy to show!

Background is created using Story Skies and Dusty Concord Distress Inks, and Slate Adirondak ink.  The stamps are from Inkylicious.

I've entered this on the Trimmie forum, in Kim's themed challenge 5, which is for a new technique, and in blogland, I'd like to enter it in the following:

Lexi's Creations - Monochromatic
Crafty Ann - Inspired by Elvis
Polka Doodles - No Printed backing papers

I really like this effect and can see myself using it again.  Oh dear, another excuse to buy more inks!
