Morning all,

Today is a new challenge at Scrappers Delights, it's also Janice's  Birthday, so the theme is Birthday.
Here's the card I made for the challenge. Of course it's a birthday theme. I thought this clown was quite cute.

With the clown digi, comes some sentiments and balloons. I used the balloons to make my own backing paper. Here's the backing paper before I cut it to size.

Looking at the paper after I've made the card I would next time use smaller balloons  and more of them. I think there's too much white. Here's the sentiment I used. I used the same colours for the balloons and on the sentiment.

Here's a close up of the image. This is the first time I've attemped to colour balloons to look like their transparent. I don't think I did too bad a job, But I'm still learning.

Last but not least here are the colours I used

Here is what you get in the digi package. You can find it here . They are on sale so you can get a bargain.

Well I hope you like my card and will try and make your own background papers using your digi stamps.
Enjoy the Bank Holiday

Here's a close up of the image

She's a gorgeous image. Here are the copic colours I used to colour her in

Well I hope you like the card. I think I need to go away from pink for a bit as that's what I've been using a lot lately to colour. Thank you Shelia for having be today at She's a Sassy Lady.
I should have another creation for you tomorrow.
Take care

Evening all,
Today I'm taking part in a little blog hop. This one is Tumbling Buddies 2 from the Simply B Stamps facebook group. I'm sharing with you the goodies I received from Kym my partner.

Here's the tumbler

Here are ribbons/lace and two mini punches

Here are some tags, flowers and some gems on wires.

Here are buttons, brads and charms

Last but not least are some crystal gems, hat pins and candy.

Thank you Kym.
Here is the list of some of the tumbling Buddies that took part so you can click on the link and see what we've all been lucky enough to receive.

The next exchange I'm taking part in is a secret pumpkin exchange. I've been slowly filling my pumpkin but we can't share who our partner is as you've guessed it it's a secret.
Well I hope you liked the hop.

Evening all,

Sorry for the late posting, but I've been attempting to update my Gypsy and it's taken a long time. I had to re configure it as it froze and I couldn't do anything. That's taken most of the day. Didn't want to run any other programmes to make sure that it didn't get held up that way. Just need to connect to cricut craft room but I'll do that in a little while.
Today I thought I'd share a card I made. I love Copica by Saturated Canary. She's one of my favourite digis to colour. Here she is

Here is a close up of the image. I'm gradually getting better with the hair. Still room for improvement but I'm getting there.

Here are the copics I used.

I'm hoping my colouring will improve a lot more as I found some books to buy that were a digital download from Make it Crafty. Ones how to colour and the other book is light source. The light source book is unbelievable. It's going to help me a lot. They come with images to practice with too.
I'll keep you updated on my progress.

Thank you Pam for having me at The Bug Bytes today.

Enjoy the rest of the weekend

My turn

Morning all,
Today is my turn to post on Scrappers Delights. I thought I'd share with you a card I made using Fairy delights.

I chose lilacs to colour her in.

For the flowers I used white ones which I then tinted with the same colours that I used on the skirt of the fairy.

The Fairy comes with some sentiments to use with her. You can find her here

Don't forget to look at our current challenge which is here
