Copic Challenge 41 Kraftin' Kimmy ch 8

Now I need to send a few Christmas cards to Australia, Normally I make them all snowy, and I usually all hat sunny ones, well this year I have had a few from Oz already and they have gone all traditional religious Christmas on me which I love (well this is exactly what Christmas is all about, the birth of our saviour Jesus Christ) And I have gone all hot and sunny on them ha ha.

The Copic Colour Challenge 41 is a three colourchallenge which wereE39 Burnt Umber YR16 Apricot (more yellow really) and G99 olive. Now as long as you stick to the shades they really don't mind if it's not the exact colour (so generous of them) and there is a super prize to be had....... 2 Kraftin Kimmy Stamps of your choice, I know how cool I love them love the quirky ones by Annie Rodrigue.
As you can see I love them here is her close up and skating away she is in the hot Ozzy summer lol I love the sentiment too, I think this is lovely to go with the whole feeling of the card I hope you like the feel too. With the lovely embossed DP as well as the EF used with the cardstock there is lots of texture too! It's worth mentioning that I also found a challenge site for my new fave stamps and the Challenge it to make a card with texture so pop over to Kraftin' Kimmys challenge blog I don't know if there is a prize but I couldn't wait and already have ordered a couple of their new relises thay are FAB! As always thank you for looking and any comments you leave are greatly appreciated thanx for taking the time to visit, love Dawn xx

Friday sketchers Ch 80

Hello Sunday already where does the time go? I have two posts to put up but think I will leave the other until tomorrow as I have lots of Christmas cards still to do, and a few to go off to Australia and USA and if I don't get them posted soon they will be late.

So onto this card for Friday Sketchers ch 80 I thought I would use this cute image, it's a new one. I have followed the sketch and also added a sentiment as there was no allowance on the sketch for one. The prize should you win, is a Magnolia stamp. It also looks like a new website to buy some of these lovely images is open, I will have to go have a look (but must be good as it's only 4 wks to go until Christmas) funny I was only saying I haven't seen these beauties on sale and now it looks like there is one, wonderful. Oh and my WOJ stamps finally arrived on Friday, so I will post something soon.

I know the photos are a bit blury, so sorry try as I might I couldn't get a good clear photo of this card at all so I am sorry. I do love the image by CC Designs and the sentiment is my WOJ (part of the new stamps that came). The sketch was unusual and I enjoyed making this card so try stop by the blog and have a go for your self there is planty of time I am quite early on this one woo hoo. Thank you for looking. Love Dawn xx

Items Used:- Copics to colour image. Stamps, Image Kraftin Kimmy, Sentiment WOJ. Cardstock SU. Ribbon Stash flowers with gems also from stash (sorry I think they were a freebie of a mag a long long time ago) Charm from Bunny Zoes.

Spoon full of sugar

Hi, I love these kimmy stamps so quirky! and I love the colour combo we have been asked to use for ASFOS challenge you have to use the basic colour of brown with either pink or blue. Any of these will make a fabby combo, but I went dor blue this time!
These images are cute but in a wierd way don't you think? Sorry about the light but it's awful no mattter what time I take the photo and if I use the flash, well I am sure you can imagine! The flower was a cream colour so I used the Copics to get the three tone colour on it.
Hope you like this as much as I am enjoying making it. Please feel free to have a look around there are some altered projects some brayering infact alsorts. Thank you for looking. Love Dawn xx
