I am back with a DT card for Divas?

Well after a month away in baking hot sun, I am finally back & enjoying these warm temperatures here in UK, although I must admit, I prefer the air con at night!
I have quickly made this card as I had forgotten about this challenge over at Divas. It is sponsored by Sweet Stamps & the theme is Anything Goes, so a nice & easy one.
I have used a Magnolia Tilda Playing on The Beach & coloured her with both Promarkers & Prisma pencils. My clouds are a bit suspect, but hey I need more practice & this is the first colouring I have done for over a month!The top paper is Magnolia but not sure on the bottom one unfortunately.
I bought the Magnolia DooHickey Vol 1 Die Club & have used some of  the dies on this card. I edged them with TH DI Salty Ocean. & added a string of flat backed pearls to complete the card. Not a flower insight!
With all the probelms I had before I went away, with changing iPads etc, I have lost some of my blogs that I follow, if anyone comments & wants to add their blog, I will add you to my blogs that I follow.

Magnolia Baubles

Its my turn once more for an inspirational post at Bearly Mine & this time I have made a Christmas card with an image I had coloured ages ago with Prisma pencils. The image is Magnolia Magic Christmas Ornaments. The papers I have chosen compliment this image perfectly & are freebies that Donna kindly gave away, back in 2012. The link is here.
& here
The pine needle die is Memory Box Pine Needle Border & the green stand? is a TH Sissix die Hanging Sign. I have edged the papers with DST & glitter & added a little wreath charm with a jump ring.
I am still away on holiday, so will look for challenges as & when I can.

Crafty Elf

Divas By Design have a new challenge starting today with a theme of Christmas in July, so nows a good time to make a start on those Xmas cards we all need to make.
I chose to use Crafty Elf from Make It Crafty & coloured  it with Promarkers!!! Yes I got out my Promarkers again & left the pencils in the drawer lol.
The papers are from a Making Cards magazine, as is the tag. The ribbon is from stash.
This brings my total Christmas cards to 4! So a few more to go yet lol.
I am on holiday when this publishes, so will look for challenges as & when.

Fuchsias at Divas By Design

Divas By Design have a challenge starting today sponsored by Mei Flower & this weeks theme is Flowers & Ribbon. I chose to use an old stamp I had (I cannot find the front of the stamp set that shows to to give credit to). I coloured it with Prisma pencils. The papers again I have no idea whom to give credit to, as they came from a  class at Sir Stamp A lot & had already been cut up when given to us. The various ribbons are all from from stash & all the flowers are from Thailand, apart from the fuchsias, they were made by me, using a kit from Alys Inky Fingers. The candy buttons are Craftwork Cards.

Lets Go Digital

Bearly Mine Challenges have another monthly challenge starting today & the theme is Lets Go Digital. I have used an image from the CD that came with Complete Cardmaking, which needed no colouring. The papers are Mini Dots from Bearly Mine. The clock die is Marianne Design. The sentiments are from the same printed sheet as the image. The lace was bought in Turkey & the flowers & pearls from Thailand. The charm was in my stash.Both my image & papers are digital, so this fits the bill nicely.
