The image is coloured with Prisma and Polychromo pencils.
The paper is from KaiserCraft and is called Class of '87 Collection.  The ruler, numbers and apple are also included in the pack.

Double Trouble at Ladybug Crafts Ink

Another fortnight has flown by and its time for another challenge at Ladybug Crafts Ink
This time the lovely super talented Laurie has chosen the theme of
Double Trouble
We want to see two of something on your card, it doesn't have to be an image but I think thats what most of the design team have done.

Remember you don't have to use a LCI image but it would be great if you did and you will be in with an extra chance to win.

So for my card I used Magnum - Fore! which is £2.00 in the Ladybug Craft Ink shop as a digital image.

My double trouble is Two sentiments and the Double Act Magnum amd Lily!
The image is coloured with Polychromo and Prisma pencils blended with Sansador.
The top sentiment is from Forever Friends and the Happy Father's Day was printed from my PC.
So I hope that you can join us for this great challenge.
Thanks for popping over and dont forget to see what the other Ladybugs have created over on the challenge blog to give you some inspiration.

Have a good day.

I'm Forever Blowing Bubbles......

Hello everyone...did you think I had disappeared?  I'm still here but just haven't had time to spend in blogland. 
Mike and I are on holiday now for two weeks and we are off to Wales tomorrow for our annual break.   I am not holding out much hope for the weather especially after seeing the awful floods on the news yesterday and its not that far from where we are heading :( So we have been getting our things ready for all weathers this morning.........
I have colouring tools at the ready just in case we spend time indoors relaxing and watching the rain!

So I thought I better share a card with you. It is an Elzybells stamp which I am not sure of the name but Blowing Bubbles is apt I think.  I got a few off Ebay recently :)

The image is coloured with Prisma pencils

Paper from scrapbox...still trying to use up the scraps!
Twine from stash
Butterfly - Die namics die
Sentiment - Woodware

Well I better get back to sorting out which images to take with me to colour in!!

I would like to enter this into the following challenges

Have a great day.

Some Great Freebies

Well so far here it has kept dry after all the rain yesterday so at least if you are celebrating today you will hopefully be dry.

Not much happening here really.....I have so many cards to make but its just not happening for me today.  My Mojo has taken a day off and just when I need it the most :(

I have managed to make a really CAS card using one of the fab freebies from the super talented Torico from Birdie Brown.  She also has a challenge running for June where she would like you to create a card using one of the telephone images that she has as a freebie.  One random winner will win a digi from her Etsy store.There is also a Just Saying Hello sentiment which is perfect for the images which I have added below. Pop over and get the telephones too...


The image is coloured with pencls and then coated with Glossy Accents.
I have then placed the image on a spring so it moves :)
I used a sentiment from My SEntiments Exactly.

Hope you have a good rest of the day.  I will be back tomorrow for a new challenge over at Ladybug Crafts Ink.
