Its the summer holidays - school is out so craft time is definitely out too, but I managed to fit a little time in today to make this card - well it was raining most of the day so we had to hit the indoor/at home activities today.

This weeks challenge from Victoria Case Stamps is Dark/Hot Pink, Orange and White. The image I have used here is a freebie from Victoria Case Stamps.

The papers I have used are from Pink Petticoat downloads and the sentiment is from Designer Digitals. I have used water colours to colour the image and some smooch in siren to add some definition to the flower petals. The orange card stock came from my stash (which is growing bigger by the day:)

Ok I couldn't resist these Popcorn Bear stamps - there are twelve sets on the market (but I bought only four this time:), available from many places but I bought mine from Card Craft as they also did free inland UK postage and I had mine within two days of ordering. I have used the stamps from the I love you set to create the card and the sentiments from the Birthday Cuddles set. I have also bought Party Time and Thanks a bunch.......which I will have a play with shortly. The stamps are all designed to mix and match so the sentiments from the other sets will fit the little posters that the bear is holding.
The papers I have used here came with simply cards and papercrafts issue 57, and for the first time I decided to decorate the inside of the card too - must admit I love this effect so will be doing more of this in the future! I have watercoloured the stamped images and outline the toppers with blue and some black to try the other stamps:)

This weeks challenge from The Sugar Bowl is a sketch by Gayle - and amazingly I have managed
to make a card within a day after the sketch was released! The papers I have used here, all
came free with simply cards and papercraft magazine issue 57 (which I have a card published in - more on that later). The image of course is from Sugar Nellie - How quirky is she??
I decided to do a little paper piecing on all of the flowers in the image using the scraps of background paper and doodled the centres with some siren smooch. The ribbon is from my stash and the sentiment is a digital download from designer digitals. The shaped panels in the centre were free templates from Mel Stampz

You should have arrived at my blog from Jana's blog, however if you skipped a few, here is the list of the rest of the design team


I have used one of the Annie May Angels along with a sentiment from the same set. I have water coloured the image, used heat embossing with silver powder on her wings, and given her some funky fishnet gloves with a gel pen! The background paper came free with simple cards and papercrafts magazine issue 57, ribbon from poppicrafts, sherbert pips from craftwork cards, white doodled dots with a gel pen, and black cardstock.

Wow Summer has arrived - the weather is brilliant! This Dotty Spotty card is for a challenge over on the Greeting Farm. I love this stamp which is also from the Greeting Farm - she is so chic! The background papers and the handcut stem and leaf I made using free download papers from here - aren't they stunning? The pink flowers I have cut from Dovecraft wild blossoms paper, the white daisy made using a woodware daisy punch and a black sharpie marker. Dotted ribbon and raspberry cardstock from my stash, Anya image watercoloured and smooch siren added to her dress and flowers and a little hand made tag with a handwritten sentiment. I have also used a sharpie pen to do some doodled dots on the scalloped layer behind the image. Peel off black dots have been used for the flower centres.
