Whiff of Joy - Challenge Card

Hi all, it's a late night for me. Lewis is teething and keeps waking every half hour so I've decided to make a card :0)

My poor little man has pink cheeks and through his pain, bless him, he gave me my colour scheme for this card. His little pink face and blue for my little boy. The photo is not great as it's a bit dark in here...

I've followed the beautiful sketch from Heather at Whiff of Joy, many thanks.

Sugar Nellie - Snowflake

This is supposed to be my entry for Challenge 21 at The Sugar Bowl - Tiets sketch

Unfortunately I don't think I made the deadline this time as I had left if until the last minute to post and had problems doing so :0( I'll learn my lesson next time!

Anyway, it is a lovely sketch and I love this image of Snowflake, she is so beautiful. The image has been coloured using Promarkers and decorated with gems. I have used papers from the Dovecraft and Papermania range. I did not have any backing card in the right colour for my image so I used my Maroon Promarker and white card to make my own. Also decorated with 3 snowflake buttons but in the rush to get the picture taken I have just seen that one has slid down the card. Lesson 2, make sure glue is dry before you move it, lol.

Whilst this card was too late for the challenge I really enjoyed making it. Now I'm back off to my poor little boy who has been teething for the last 2 weeks, bless him xxx

Thanks for looking and take care all, Tam x

My Second Challenge at Crafty Catz

Here is my entry for the second challenge at Crafty Catz. This week the challenge is butterflies!
I have used Promarkers to colour in this Gorjuss girl and mounted her onto white glitter and lilac circle nestabilities. The stripy glitter butterfly is from Tescos and paper, flowers and hearts are from my stash.
Thanks for looking :o)
