Here's my card for this week

and a close up

The image is 'Lollypoppy' by Barb Jensen
What a great image this is !! I wanted to have fun with this image and make a play on the image name.. ( So i made a lollypop)
The image was coloured with my Promarkers. Of course i added abit of glossy accents ;O)
To make the lollypop. I used 1 large button and a card candy piece. I attatched the card candy using a foam round then covered the top of the button and card candy with glossy accents. Around the edge i added some stickles ;O)
I left my card fairly plain as i wanted the image and lollypop to be the focal points on the card. So i just backed the image by layering it up using a die cut deckled rectangle.. Again i kept to the same colours that i had used to colour the image, i just used different shades of them.

Well thats it from me this time.. I hope you are having a great weekend and the sun is shining.

Then for my second card this week i used an image bu Donna at Lil Diva.
I loved having fun with this creation. I used no scissors.apart from cutting out my image ;O) .. Even to make the flowers it was free hand. .. The umberella looks orange in the photograph. I am sure the glossy accents made the colour loose some of its redness. I did use a red Promarker.

OSAAT Challenge #121 ..... Sun

Well todays challenge at OSAAT  is what everyone in the UK  is wishing for

Sun !!
What awful weather we have been having :O(

So my aim for today is to get the sun shining !!

Our theme is Sun .... So think Summer, colours or round ;O) You get the idea.

For this challenge i am working with April from Rheeses Scrap Pieces. I have chosen to use sunflower... So heres my creation this week

I coloured the image using my Promarkers and added abit of glossy accents ( Well it would be rude not too hehe )
I then used the paper that came in the pack i chose as my backing paper.
Using mny nesties i cut the image into a circle, then a scalloped circle from yellow paper.
To finish my card i added yellow and orange card candy around the card and yellow gems to the scallops around the sunflower.

Now if the weather god is listening.... Can we have abit of sunshine here in the UK  and send abit of rain to my crafty sisters in USA ??  I am sure we would both appreciate a swap over :O)

Dont forget to share your sunshine with us at the One Stitch At A Time challenge blog.

OSAAT DT card and a DT call

Well its another Sunday so that means its time for another funtastic challenge at One Stitch At A Time.
Its everyones favorite ..... Use a Digi.
For this challenge  Mandy, my teamie chose Jess's Orchid to create with... What a great image..
I couldnt decide just what to make with this image.. It shouted at me to make a bookmark.. But i ignored myself and made the image really large, don't you love digi images when you can do that ?..
I made a 7 x 5 card and made the image the focal point of the card. So i coloured the card with my promarkers added lots of stickles and abit of glossy accents..
I punched down the side of the card and then felt that if i added anything else to the card it would spoil the look that i was going for .... So thats how it stayed..
Heres my card

A close up of the flower
