CAGI Challenge Peace, Love and Joy


Hello and welcome to my blog.

My first Design Team was at Come and Get It Challenges and I learnt a lot during my time with the team and made some wonderful friends.

I was recently told that CAGI will be having their final challenge in December and with a sad heart the challenge will then close.  

On a happy note I was super excited to be asked by Cindy to join the team and be part of the challenge for December and I hope that you will join us too!

As always in December CAGI the team showcases cards and projects with the sponsors images.

So this is my first post for CAGI in December to showcase a card made with
Bestie Dolls digital image - Peace, Love, Joy

I have coloured the image in with Copic markers and created lots of layers using DSP from SU
"Around the World".

Here is my card: 


The dies used are from SU Square collection and Spellbinders Nestabilities Captivating Squares collection.
The fabric snowflakes are from my stash and there are a few SU pearls on the card too.

The soft blue colours were perfect for this card and I added a touch of Wink of Stella on the image wings.
The cardstock is SU Pool Party and Basic Grey and the image is printed on Xpress It Blending cardstock.  


Here is a close up of the image: 



The sentiment is from Lilli of the Valley and reads: 
"Seasons Greetings - Christmas Wishes sent to you"

SG Inks and Sprays


Hello and welcome.

I am sharing with you a card made for our new challenge at Southern Girls.

Our theme: Inks and Sprays
Our sponsors: Ppinky Dolls and Krafterscart


I am sure you will agree with me, we all make some fabulous purchases but some of those purchases just seem to gather dust.

Well one of these items for me was my Adirondack Ink Sprays but I brushed away the dust and had such messy fun using them for this challenge.

I used some SU Whisper White cardstock and randomly sprayed the inks until the cardstock was covered.  

The messy part was that one of them leaked and my hands were blue and green for a day or too.  
  I was glad I put newspaper down or the messy part could have been a lot worse.


The image I have used is from Ppinky Doll and is called Moongirl and Bird.

Here is my card:


The Adirondack spray colours used were: 
Lettuce, Bottle, Denim and Stream

I wanted to create a sort of blue background to seem like the night sky which I thought would be perfect for the image.


Here is a close up of the image:


They are such sweet images but sometimes they look so sad.

The sentiment I have used is from the SU Special Reason stamp set, stamped in SU Island Indigo ink  and reads:
"There's no special reason for this card.."

The flag diecut is from Craft Queen.  The paper doily is from my stash.
The cardstock used is SU Island Indigo, Baja Breeze and X-Press It Blending cardstock.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Retarte Challenge - #110 Anything Goes

SG Crazy for Critters


Hello and welcome.

I am sharing with you my card for our new challenge at Southern Girls.

Our theme:  Crazy for Critters

So what is a critter?  Well according to the online dictionary it is a living creature/animal.  So the sweet decoupage image I have used is perfect.

I have been cleaning a few thing up recently and found a decoupage sheet with Morehead images and the little girl with her sweet kitten goes well with the paper I found also.

Here is my card:


The cardstock used is SU retired Blackberry Bliss and Bashful Blue and Whisper White.

The little lace was also in my stash and just added a soft touch to the card.


Here is a close up of the decoupage image: 



The sentiment is a Lily of the Valley sentiment and was stamped in SU Blackberry Bliss ink 

Here is a close up:


Sentiment was punched out with the 1 3/4" Circle Punch.
