Groovy dude....You rock !!

Hi everyone....My friend needed a birthday card for her bro...So I thought I'd colour up the groovy dude image from Kenny K.
He is such a fun image...I used the sentiment 'You totally ROCK' from the greeting farm.

There is a couple adhesive rhinestone bling down the bottom of the card...(Thanks sammi, I love them!!)
which I coloured with brown copics to match.

Have fun crafting...till next time,

It's a 'NAUTICAL' challenge @ TOMIC

Hi everyone, Thankyou for coming to visit my blog....I love the new TOMIC challenge blog and I am SOOOOOO EXCITED to tell you I am going to be a guest DT for a week!!
I got in the top five with my side step card entry last week.....which means I have a lovely top 5 TOMIC badge to display on my blog ;-) You should have seen the smile on my face when I found out!!
Now onto my entry for the current challenge which is Nautical....I have used fishing Edwin and Fishing tilda
I coloured them with my Copics...The sentiment you are my best friend is from Magnolia.
Here it is.....Check out the 'REAL' WATER....

There's a fish in there.....!! I thought the water was a lovely touch to the Nautical theme....what do you think?
I added some blue micro beads to the water so when you shake it up they float around...
I drew the rocks Tilda is standing on with a multi-liner and coloured them with grey copics.

Tilda and Edwin.....I wonder what's in Tilda's basket?

Here's a close up of the water globe...I hope you like it.....I would love to read your comments!!
Till next time, happy crafting.

Get well wishes feat mini magnolia...

I am here with a gorgeous new mini stamp from Magnolia...not quite sure what she is actually called yet but I'll have a guess and say Nurse Tilda..!!
She was included in the new summer stamp club kit from Magnolia....I cant wait till she is released in a large version cos she is perfect for those get well cards...

I only just realized that this card actually fits in with our current challenge pink and yellow over at mad for markers...hehe 

The 'get well wishes' sentiment is from Stampin up.
Image is coloured with copics...It's kind of hard to tell by the pic but this is actually a mini sized card, I used a normal size card and cut it in half and made it into the shape of a tag.

Hope you enjoyed my post...Im sure I will be back with lots more inspiration for you very soon!!

You are a winner!!

Hi Everyone !!
I have made an Easel card using stamps from magnolia's new summer club kit..... this little Edwin is so cute. The sentiment and the winner ribbon is also from the kit.
I made the card to fit the sketch over at Magnolia down under challenge...I really loved the flag banner on this, I reakon I may use this idea a bit more.

I coloured all the images with copic markers and distressed some of the paper edges to give it a rough look. I used some brown chalk ink on the edges.
I just adore magnolia stamps...can you tell?!!
Thanks for looking
