Here again i used my Promarkers to colour this fun image and added stickles to give her a shiney t shirt . I added some cream ribbon to the edge of the card after i had added th DP which i used my Martha Stewart corner punch to add interest to the corners. For extra shine i added a line of stickles next to the ribbon and gems in the cut outs. I tried again to make a quilled flower lol... I used glossy accents to hold it all together which worked really well. Next time i will try and use proper quilling paper instead of an off cut of card. The green was green all the way through but the purple had a white core. I suppose it adds interest though LOL
Well thats it for my One Stitch At A Time adventure this week. Hope you stop by and join in the fun.

Our sponsor this week is
Who are offering £10 to spend instore. Click on the logo to go to the store.
My DT card this week is Something for the Boys and Christmas Club.
Its using a FANTASTIC image by Kelleys Kids her name is Nellie Nog and i think shes been drinking the whole cup of eggnog lol. You can buy her here . I thought she was perfect for a male card.
Heres a close up of Nellie.
The card has been made by colouring the image with Promarkers. I then covered that glass cup with Glossy accents to give it a shine. She of course needed Stickles on her wings to give them a glitter ;O)
I embossed a piece of silver mirror card with my snowflakes folder and then cut out a white snowflake and scattered it with gems. It was placed onto a Christmas DP and a sentiment from craftwork cards was popped on to 'finish' my card.
Thats it from me today ... Hope you come along and join in whether its for Christmas Club or that fantastic theme that turns most card makers to jelly ..... Something for the Boys ;O)

Over at One Stitch At A Time this week. Deborah is asking you to get out your glitter and gems and 'Bling it up'.
Our sponsor this week is The Stamping Boutique. Who are offering one lucky winner their choice of 5 digi images.If you click on the logo it will take you to their store.
For this challenge i was lucky enough to be able to use their Easter Egg washing line digi image.
Heres my card that i made.
I coloured the image with my Promarkers. Then added abit of glossy accents and my metallic pens. The little bling squares are mosaiac tiles that i bought and were perfect for this 'bling' project.
Double happy this week as i also got to work with a fabulous image from Sylvie from Sylvie Stamps.
As soon as i saw this gorgeous image i knew that was the one i had to use. Mermaid is a beautiful image inspired by Gustav Klimt. Its available to buy here. The image just shouted to be 'blinged'. It wanted lots of silver, gold and bronze. So thats just what i gave it.
This card is SOOOO sparkly it was very hard to photograph. The image was coloured with Promarkers and my metallic pens. I inked the edge of the white card in silver. Then backed it with silver glitter card. With a few gems on the image and the card.
Thats it from me this week. I hope that you enjoyed your visit to my blog. Dont forget to visit the other DT members blogs and spread abit of love. We will deffinately be stopping by your blogs.
I would like to add my Mermaid card to the following challenges:

So that means its time for another One Stitch At A Time challenge. This week its Josephines' turn to pick a theme. She chose ' Use A Charm' .
So thats this weeks theme, 'Use a Charm'.
The sponsor time is Creative Craft World (click on logo to go to their store)
Lou is offering a set of 5 Promarkers to the winner :O)
My Creator that i had to work with this week was Tami who is Ginger Loft..
I must admit i saw this image which was part of a set of Trees and fell for it instantly.. You know how sometimes you just see a certain image and it has so many possibilities that it makes it into a perfect image ? Well this is one of those !! It could be spring, summer , autumn or even winter depending on how you chose to add colour to the sky, the grass or even the Design Papers that you put with it. The image that i used is available to buy here.
At Creative Craft World this week it was Sues turn to design a map.. Below is her fantastic circles map for you all to try. Dont forget to visit the blog to see all the stunning examples by the DT.
I hope that you all come and join in the fun at CCW with our weekly scrap maps
Dont forget that theres also a fortnightly card challenge that runs on Wednesdays.. Scroll down on the challenge blog to see the current challenge ...A card for a male.
I would also like to welcome Trish and Nora to the Design Team. Great to have you on board ladies :O)

Its Card Crazy Challenge time again.
This fortnight Sarah A chose 'Card for a male'. So anything goes as long as the card is for a man/boy.
The sponsor this fortnight is The Crafty Pad. Who are offering the winner a selection of images.
The DT were lucky enough to play with 3 images from The Crafty Pad . Me , being me, couldnt resist in making a card with each image ;O)
My DT cards:
For my first card . I coloured the image using Promarkers adding Glossy accents to his wellies and Stickles to the river to give the effect of glistening water. It must be a really warm day right ? As hes shaded under a tree. So the water would shine. I kept my backing papers plain so that they didnt take away any interest from the image. But i embossed it using my cuttlebug to give abit of texture. I did this with all 3 of my cards. The sentiment came with the image.
My third and final card for this challenge is another giraffe image. What a great image. I used a lighter backing paper that had been embossed in stars. So the card wouldnt stand out too much as being late ;O) But added a few gems just to finish it off.
