Hi there everyone.

Today the Saturated Canaries are starting our next image showcase challenge over on our Saturated Canary Facebook page.

And its a super duper one this time! we just want to see where your creativity takes you so its...

Anything Goes.

You can make any creation you like be it card, scrap page, an altered something, smash book/journal page etc...just let your creativity go!

The prize, as always, will be 2 digital images of your choice from the shop and the rules are super simple too..

* you can enter ONLY ONCE

( this makes it fair for everyone )

* you can enter with any FINISHED creation but...IT MUST BE HANDCRAFTED

(digital colouring of Krista's images is not permitted in accordance to TOU's)

Here is my "ANYTHING GOES" make

I have used the super cute digi image called PANDA HUG

She is printed on Xpress blending card and coloured with copic markers. I have used various dies and embellishments, including my latest purchase, the Happy Birthday die from Cheery Lynn.

Thanks for stopping by today.

Hi there.

A quick post for me today as photoshop is playing up on my computer and has made me late for my post.

There is a new  DECONSTRUCTED SKETCH up on Jen's blog today.

I hope you like my card.....

I've just discovered these ART IMPRESSIONS rubber stamps. How gorgeous are these four "beach babes" ?

Here is Jen's fab sketch....

For more inspiration, check out the fabulous work of my team mates below.

Hi there. I have very exciting news to share. If you've been following the SATURATED CANARY spring guest designer DT call, you will already know my news, so this is for those that don't already know.... I MADE THE TEAM!!!

Saturated Canary is one of my most favourite stamp companies, and Krista, the owner/artist is one of the most beautiful and kind people i know. So i am beyond thrilled that she has chosen little old me to be on her guest DT for the next 4 months. Woo Hoo !  Can you tell how excited I am?

I was lucky enough to get to play with a new Spring digi today, and she has been  up for grabs on Krista's instagram but i think the 24 hrs has already passed.

So here is my celebratory card......

Usually I go overboard on embellishments, but I loved this image so much that i kept it fairly clean and simple.

Papers are from 4 different little paper pads, and the "hello" die is from Lawn Fawn, and cut out of thin adhesive wood.

I hope you like my card.

Thanks for stopping by.

DS # 184 ~SMILE~

Hi there.

It's time for a new DECONSTRUCTED SKETCH

Here is my card....

I used a cute little PPINKYDOLLSART digital image, and coloured her with copics.

I tried really hard to make the little envelope on Jen's fab sketch work, but ended up with an oval :)

Here is Jen's sketch, awesome as always...

For more inspiration, check out the fabulous work of my team mates below.

I've just realised that this is my fourth post in as many days! I'm on a roll.

Hi there.

I am so excited about the SATURATED CANARY Spring guest designer call that I've made a second card to enter. Woohoo. Thankfully work was quiet today....

For this card I used DAYDREAMS from the New Year special bundle, and she was a delight to colour.

I hope you like my card......

Once again I printed her on Xpress blending card, then coloured her with my copic markers.

PAPERS-  Websters pages

CARDSTOCK- Bazill bling

Flowers- Prima and Wild Orchid Crafts

Sentiment sticker-  WEBSTERS pages.

I fussy cut her out once coloured using my favourite Cutterbee scissors.

Recently I have noticed ladies photographing their cards sitting atop a slice of "tree". They look so cute, but I think I missed the mark with this rather large cheeseboard I picked up the other day. LOL.

I would love to know what people use.

Well, thank you so much for stopping by.

Whilst on Summer vacation I colored up the gorgeous MAY from Krista's awesome New Year bundle.
Of course my E11 decided to go sticky when i was shading her nose, but I'm pleased with how she turned out otherwise.
Since Saturated Canary are one of my all-time fave stamp companies, I've decided to enter for the Spring Guest DT call. You can find all the details on the Saturated Canary Challenge blog HERE, and all of the entries on facebook HERE
So, wish me luck, and I hope you like my card.
IMAGE-  May from New Year bundle
PAPER-  Echo Park
DIES-  MFT, Sizzix
FLOWERS-  Wild Orchid Crafts (colored with copics to match May's dress)
Thanks for stopping by,

She is printed on Xpress blending card and coloured using copic markers.

Dies are from Lawn Fawn, Memory Box, MFT, and Sizzix.
