Glitter and sparkle at WagsnWhiskers challenge

Good morning all

It's challenge day over at Wags'nWhiskers today and our theme is

Sparkle and glitter

I've used one of the cute images from Wags'nWhiskers 
called Ellie and Squeak

I was going to colour this little cutie traditional elephant grey
  but I threw caution to the wind and made her pink instead 
why not I thought - life's too short for boring elephants!!

I must admit it doesn't look to sparkly or glittery in the photo
 - but it does have a nice subtle glittery look in real life

I decided on a soft look and coloured it with my Spectrum noir pencils
colour numbers 36,37,38,62,85,112

Here's what i did...

image - Ellie and squeak from Wags'nwhiskers
Coloured with spectrum noir pencils
Papers - first edition blank canvas
Stitched square die - memory box
leaf die - Sue Wilson curled vines
Flower die - MFT  (Sunflower I think - it was a give away in store so has no package)
Sentiment tags - LOTV
glitter details - stickles

Have a look over at Wags'nwhiskers challenge and see what my teamies have made - theres some seriously cute sparkle going on over there!

A card of many folds challenge at The Paper Shelter

Good morning all

Hope you are all coping with our decline into autumn - where did summer go 
or when did it come really - we've had some lovely sunny days
but a lot of rain here lately - booo!

Anyway it's time for another challenge at 

The Paper Shelter

This week our theme is 

A card of many folds

I've been so busy these past couple of months 
you might have noticed that I haven't been around much lately

What with the normal summer holiday time and ordinary family things
mainly I've been scribing for my son Tom (who is disabled)
He's just a few weeks away now from completing his masters degree
at Newcastle University - but many months have gone into his dissertation
and I've shared the journey - and we're still travelling on : )

Sooo I decided to make the quickest easiest card I could
using one of the pre- coloured  paper and image sets
available at 

She's called Autumn Trends available here

I cut two sets of papers to make my easel card 
stuck it onto Kraft card and a tan mat 
then just cut out the cute little girl in the frame which I raised on 3d glue gel
The die for the sentiment is an old spellbinders label die
I stamped a sentiment from a heartfelt creations set
and gave a little definition to the labels with TH distress ink in Tea Dye
and the ribbon from is my stash - easy as that!

The image is quite large standing top to bottom of my 6 inc card
it makes a great statement card - in pretty quick time
When I have more crafty time she's one I'm looking forward to colouring
 - so much lovely detail

As always there is a fab prize up for grabs at TPS

Hope you'll come and join in with our challenge this week
