Unicorn Maiden

It's been a while since I coloured an image, just because I wanted to.  Most of my posts over the last 3 years have been Design Team work or colouring classes.

This year I have had a promotion at work and so cut down on some of my DT work, but today I found myself without spreadsheets and work deadlines. So, It was lovely to just sit and colour without a schedule or theme and put into practice some of what I have learnt over at Kit & Clowder.

I really wanted to challenge myself, so I picked an image by Moonflower Digi Stamps called "Unicorn Maiden", because of all the hair and folds.

It has shown me, I still have a lot to learn, but also how relaxing it is just to colour for fun again.

Image coloured with Copics.

DC Love and Kisses

It's DIGI CHOOSDAY challenge time and as usual it is ANYTHING GOES, but this week the team are all loved up.

I also used some of the lovely new dies from Polkadoodles.

Fluffy Clouds
Stitched & Pierced Nested Circles
Hello Sentiment

Finally I used the Doodle Border stamp to edge my card.

Twin Girls


Today is my final challenge inspiration for Colour Crazy Challenge, Unfortunately due to work commitments I have had to cut down on my Design Team work for next year, 

But just want to say it has been a pleasure to work with all the wonderful ladies on the Design Team this past year.

So onto the challenge, as always it is ANYTHING GOES and our sponsor is the wonder Crafty Ribbons.

I seem to have been making an awful to of new baby cards this month, so here is one I have made for a set freshly baked Twins.


The beautiful image is by Mo's Digital Pencil and coloured with Copics.

I used Kraft and so designer papers to layer up my card and embellished with roses by Rainbow Resins, finished off with a wooden heart and a hand tied polka dot bow.

Happy Crafting and have a wonderful 2018.

Digi Choosday Week 51

Its is the final Digi Choosday of 2017 and this week we want to thank everyone who visits, comments and enters our challenges.

So my thank you card features a pre-coloured image from Winnie Sugar Sprinkles



I started by taking a 12 x 12 paper and just folding it and created this fab frame for my image.

I decorated with gems, resin flowers and a big bow, finally adding Winnie to the centre and also a sentiment from the same collection.

Digi Choosday Week 50


Not long until the new year, so for this weeks DT inspiration at DIGI CHOOSDAY I have created a tag calendar, using loads of images from some of the wonderful collections at POLKADOODLES.

For the front I have merged images from Serenity, Darlin Buds, Octavia Frosted Winter and some butterflies from Winnie Special Occasions.


The tags are almost A4 size and the blank months are from the Silhouette Store.  I printed them on different coloured card stock for each quarter of the year.

Next I choose some of my favourite images from the collections and added to the front of each month.  I tried to match images to the seasons.

 January - Helga Hippo
February - Lily Love Bug
March - Winnie Fruit Punch

April - Lil Miss Sugar Pops
May - Darlin Buds Tulip
June - Winnie Special Moments
July - Winnie Starfish & Sandcastles
August - Winnie Starfish & Sandcastles
September - Winnie Fruit Punch




October - December - Winnie White Christmas







There are so many wonderful collections and you can find them all HERE
