Daring Card Makers Challenge - Something New

It's time for a new Daring Card Makers Challenge and I'm the host this week and my theme is

Something New

One of my cousins is due to have a baby girl at the end of the month and I've made this card in preparation!  I've used a Little Miss Muffet stamp (which is currently unavailable), coloured with Promarkers and edged it with heart die cuts to mirror the card blank.  The sentiment die, I think is Lawn Fawn, and I cut it twice for extra depth.


The paper I found in my stash - trying to use up all the bits that I have (I have loads) and the ribbon, bakers twine and little charm are also from my stash.

Good luck with the challenge!  I'd like to enter the following:

It's time for a new Polkadoodles challenge and the theme as always is

Anything Goes

The DT were challenged to make a Valentine's card and I've used the rather Some Bunny Adores You digi, coloured with Promarkers and layered onto a really old paper from Sugar Birdies (I'm trying to use up all my oddments!)  The sentiment comes with the digi and I've added it along with some wooden hearts, waxed cord and a heart charm, all from my stash.

Daring Card Makers Challenge - January Elemental Inspiration

Welcome to the first Daring Card Makers challenge of 2020!  As its the first challenge of the month, it is an Elemental Inpsirational theme and you need to pick three different elements for your project - colour counts as one choice.


I've used the colour blue, the oriental theme, flowers, circles and the female.  The image is a really old acrylic stamp that I bought on a whim around 11 years ago and have never used it!  It's from Craftwork Cards and its a discontinued item. Coloured with Promarkers plus added ribbon, half pearls and vellum from my stash.


Good luck with the challenge!  I'd like to enter the following:

Colour Crazy Challenge - Week 1 - Digi Doodle Studios

It's time for a new Colour Crazy Challenge and the theme, as always is

Anything Goes

This week we are sponsored by Digi Doodle Studios and I've used Penelope Party Girl and coloured her with Promarkers.  I've used off-cuts of papers that I got free some years ago in a magazine - didn't have anything large enough so had to be creative with what I had!


The sentiment is from Polkadoodles and I've added dots of liquid pearls around the edge of the image and sentiment.  The gems and pearls are from my stash.

Good luck with the challenge!  I'd like to enter the following:
