Hi everybody and welcome to this weeks challenge sponsored by Derwent. The challenge this week is to design something and make sure it is coloured with pencils. I am new to watercolouring pencils but have really enjoyed working with them and think that it is easier to shade using them than I do using Alcohol markers. If you would like to join in head on over to the blog and add your card so we can see.

Here is my card. 

I used my aquarel pencils to colour this little pirate in. I also used my free stamps from this months issue of Papercraft Inspirations to create the banner and bunting. I hope that you like it. I am entering this card into some challenges and I have listed them below.

Amusing Challenges - Anything goes
CAS on Sunday - Masculine card
Challenges for everybody - Anything goes

TTPH CHALLENGE - Die Cut and Digi Stamp

Many Thanks to this weeks sponsors 

Hello everybody, Hope you are all ok. This weeks challenge over at TTPH Challenges is Die cut and Digital Stamp. I chose to create a shaped card using my Silhouette cameo and imported my digital stamp from Lacy Sunshine on to one of the layers that I created so that it would fit perfectly on to my card. I also created a Rosette flower using my Martha stewart scoreboard. I think it turned out really cute. I would love to hear what you think.

I used my watercolours to colour in the image and some printed papers from the new Crafters Companion Love CD-ROM.

Many thanks for coming to have a look at my card. Head on over to the TTPH Challenge blog and join in with this weeks challenge for your chance to win a lovely prize.

TTPH Challenge - Crafty Sentiments - Anything goes

Good Monday Everybody. I hope that you are well. This week at TTPH Challenges we have an easy - Anything goes challenge sponsered by the lovely people over at Crafty sentiments. They have generously offered 3 digis to the lucky winner of this challenge so get on over to the blog and enter your creation.

After looking through our choice of image from crafty sentiments I decided to choose Sally having fun to use on my card. i thought that she was cheeky and cute kind of like my daughter so she appealed to me. I used a shadow box card from the Silhouette Studio online store Design ID #26663 and cut it out using my silhouette cameo. I created an inset shadow for the inside and imported sally into my design program to cut her out directly on the mat. I coloured her in using my watercolour pencils and blended the colours using a promarker blender pen. I then added some buttons and flowers from the papermania sew lovely collection. I hope that you like my results. If you would like to join in this weeks challenge head on over to TTPH now and add your card 

Hugs Becky

Hello all you Hazelnuts. I hope that you are well and enjoying your start of 2014.Mine has been fairly quiet as the children have been off school and the weather has been awful so we have had plenty of duvet days watching movies and playing games on the Xbox. Today is our first challenge over at Through the Purple Haze and out lovely  Anita has started us back into challenges gently by letting us share our Secret Santa goodies that we received from our partners in a Secret Santa Hop. I was so excited when my package arrived as I could see it had come all the way from ASHLEY in America and all the goodies inside made me feel like it was Christmas all over again. Thank you so Much Ashely I loved it all and I can't wait to start playing. I though that I would share some Pictures with you of my goodies xxx

Ashley also sent me some super cute glass embellishments but they are already being used so I will point them out when I share the project I am making on my blog. I also received the cutest little snowman card you ever did see so Thank you once again Ashley. 

If you are following the Hop you should have arrived at my blog from Ashley's blog and you should be heading over to Darcy's blog to have a nosey at her goodies too. I f you arrived here by accident and would like to begin the hop at the beginning head on over to Anita's blog and follow the path from there. That's what I'm off to do. I can't wait to see everybody's goodies.

Hi everybody, It's the 1st of the month again and time for a new challenge over at Just for Fun Challenge blog. This months theme is Christmas. I have been making some candles for gifts for people this week and I have decided to create one for my challenge entry.

I found some videos on youtube by searching for decorating candles that helped me and I am sure they would help you too if you fancy trying. Anyway here is my entry for this month.
