DIGITAL DELIGHTS CHALLENGE, BUTTONS!

The Challenge at Delightful Challenges this week is BUTTONS, BUTTONS, use buttons or brads! And we're sponsered by Robin's Nest!



I got to play with the brilliant, Crafty Mouse! And a sentiment from the Birthday Sentiment Set!



I coloured the image with my promarkers and used papers from Papermania's Happy Day's pack! Dove into my stash of buttons, for some that matched my colour scheme and finished it off with the sentiment.

DIGITAL DELIGHTS CHALLENGE - HOT, HOT, HOT, USE WARM COLOURS

This weeks Delightful Challenge is HOT, HOT, HOT - Use Warm Colours! And we're sponsored by the brilliant:



Who are kindly offering up a $10 voucher for our winner.



Warm colours make me think of summer and with summer in full swing, my mind is full of images of sun, surfing and sand and perhaps more importantly cocktails! So this week I used Pauly in Paradise and the Summer Surfin Fun sentiment set.
















This is my card. The image coloured with my promarkers. I used papers from fancy pants designs and card from the papermill. Die cutting some flowers and a flourish and finishing with gems.

Super excited today as it's my first card for the Delightful Challenges Design Team and a brilliant new release week!

The Challenge this week is My Favourite Things, use your favourite embellishments! And we're sponsered by DiesRUs!



I got to play with the brilliant new image, Guardsman Scott! And a sentiment from the Birthday Sentiments Set!



This is my card, with my favourite embellishment, gems! I just love gems! (as anyone who is a regular visitor to my blog will surely know! lol!) The papers are old freebies, that I've had laying around in my drawers for about two years, so I no longer remember where they came from! (oops!)

Happy Birthday Mum (and a note...)

Before I show you the card I've made today... I have some exciting news! But... I'm not going to tell you. It's killing me not too, really! I've been sitting on this for weeks - and let me tell you I just don't have that much patience! But I've kept it this long, so I'm going to keep my trap shut for just a few days more... however... if you come back on Sunday, I promise to share!

Until then, I hope you like my newest card!

My Grandmother turns 93 tomorrow and this is the card my Mum asked me to make for her.



I used papers from First Edition (j'adore paper pack) layered on dark blue card and paired it with this gorgeous poppies image from Aurora Wings and a computer generated sentiment (font: callie hand). I coloured the poppies with my promarkers (lipstick red, berry red, poppy red, slate, pear green and marsh green). I kept the embellishment light, with a punched butterfly and a few pearls.

I'm submitting this to:

- Craftyhazelnuts Patterned Paper Challenge (June) - Anything Goes
- Bunny Zoe's Crafts (June Challenge) - Layers
- Ladybug Crafts Ink - Anything Goes

Scrap-tastic



Gosh I've been busy lately. I was away for the weekend a couple of weeks ago and ever since I feel like I've hardly had a minute! This is only the second card I've managed since I got home! But thankfully, I think things are quietening down a bit now, so hopefully I'll have a little more crafty time.

Today's card, comes from my over zealous use of Papermania's happy days paper pack - *lots* of scraps left over! I lightly distressed the edges of the paper, added a sentiment from crafters companion and embellished with a button, some twine and gems.

I'm submitting this too:
- Retro Sketches #119 - Sketch
- Crafting When We Can #71 - Left Overs (use scraps only)
- Craft Your Passion #218 - Use 3 or more embellishments
- Creative Inspirations #270 - Tie It Up (include a bow on your creation)
