Enjoying The Sun

That is one thing I won't be doing today!  It has been pouring rain since before I even got up this morning - and hasn't really let up at all.  I was tempted to stay in bed - but had a few things I had to get done.



I would like to enter my card into these challenges:

CHNC Patterned Paper - June Challenge
http://craftyhazelnutspatternedpaper.blogspot.co.nz/2016/06/craftyhazelnuts-patterned-paper-june.html

I have used three papers and a digi image from Little Scraps of Heaven for this card.  One of the papers was a plain one so I have used that one for the matting.  The image has been coloured with copic markers and a bit of shine added to his sunnies with some Glossy Accents.

Triple Treat

I have worked with a set of images that enabled me to split into three circles:

I have used some glitter cardstock from American Crafts for the background.  The centre strip is from  paper by Lily Bee Designs.  I bordered this with some PeelOff Stickers.  The images are from From The Heart Stamps and have been coloured with copic markers W3, W0, RV10, BG15, RV23, C2 and I also used some Stickles - Frosted Lace. 

Here is the sketch and twist that I followed:

Don't talk to me......

....til I've had my coffee!

I'm not one of those people who needs a coffee first thing in the morning - but I know alot of people who could relate to this sentiment.  I'm more of a Hot Chocolate person myself!

Tuesday Morning Sketches - Sketch
http://tuesdaymorningsketches.blogspot.co.nz/2016/06/tuesday-morning-sketches-357.html

I have used a paper from Lily Bee Designs which I edged with some Peelcraft stickers.  I am thrilled with the difference that the Peelcraft stickers made to the overall look of the card.  The image and sentiment are from Oddball Art Company.  I also added some aqua coloured glitter domes.

Wedding Congratulations

I ended up having to change the sentiment I was going to use on my card as my printer just ran out of black ink so a digital sentiment was not possible. It is well before the shops open for the day and it is pouring with rain at the moment anyway!  I found an acrylic stamp that I could use instead.
