HamboHoedown 75

Todays challenge over at Hambo Stamps is to combine this Clown Shoes digi image ( given free if you entered last weeks challenge) with polka dots. As soon as I saw this cheeky little clown I knew I wanted him to be balancing something in his raised hand, I decoupaged his dickie bow too and added some dots to that.

Paper Smooches Picture Perfect

The Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge today is picture perfect, The inspiration is from this picture,
so I created this card from the top of the feather duster in the Squeaky Clean set, and the sentiment is from thanks teacher in the smarty pants set. I had a lot of fun sponging the background and distresssing the edge, I used glossy accents on the flowers and finished off with some stickles around the top of them.
you can find this challenge here at Paper Smooches

CAS-ual Fridays CFC62 Back in Black

I have just recieved my new Paper Smooches stamps, I absolutely adore them all but to start my collection I have got the smarty pants set, how gorgeously cute is this little professor, he is adorable, and thought he would go well with this weeks CAS-ual Fridays challenge which is to create a clean and simple card using a black card base, so I have put him with his blackboard, and stamped the sentiment in white ink.

HamboHoedown 74

I have made this card for the HamboHoedown 74 challenge found here using the sunglasses digi stamp that I got free for entering last weeks challenge. The challenge this week was to use punches with the image, I used my flower punches and also punched the scallop border.

CAS-ual Fridays CFC61: LETS STRIP

I made this card for the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge  to use strips of colour or pattern in your clean and simple design, It took me ages to think of something because strips of paper are not really my thing, but boy, as I was toying with the idea of putting strips of tape measure actually on the card, I came up with this quirky idea, I think it works well, and in with the theme of the challenge.

CIC#55 some like it hot

This card is for the Clearly I Stamp, clearly inspired challenge, some like it hot. the image is from pink petticoats sweet sundaes and the sentiment is from create with TLC (I think). I coloured the image with promarkers and added glossy accents to the cherry.
I just love Pink Petticoat images, they are so cute and quirky. I am getting right into doing the card challenges now, and looking for more to enter, they make me think and I am sure that you all understand what I mean when I say that doing a card is 90% thinking and 10% doing!!

I have made this card for the Hambohoedown72 challenge, the challenge was to make a card with a pocket on, I really struggled with this as it is out of my comfort zone, but I think I did ok, I kept with the theme of Australia by using some crocodile paper I had in my stash and some other tropical feel papers.
when you pull on the large balloon popping out it reveals the full image of the mummy kangaroo with her little joey.
