Kloes entry for MDUC

Kloe has yet again made a card for the new challenge over at MDUC. She will want her own blog soon to showcase

The theme is buttons, flowers and bows.

All I helped her to do was show her where she should put highlights on her people and i printed off the saying for her which is a digital stamp from Kaisercraft.

I think she did another good job considering she is only 10...but then I am her mum and might be a tad biased lol.

New week at MDUC and one for Simon says too

Ok this week I've managed to combine three challenges....woot woot I'm getting braver and entering into i know what a step

here is my card for MDUC which was to use Buttons, flowers and bows......check, check, check

And for Simon Says whose theme was LOVE.....awww!

Just got my new Magnolia flowers from Simon Says Stamp and had to use them!!

And I Want to apologise for the horrid photo. My camera battery is near on deaths door but cant find the charger anywheres...typical!!

New Challenge at MDUC

Magnolia down under has a new challenge!. its a sketch but it has to be girlie and use the colour Orange. o my..I so dont do Orange overly well. not my fav colour at all!!

Eeekk..brings back horrid memories of my mums 70's orange and brown kitchen...eeek!! i hope I dont have nightmares tonight!!

Anywho I managed to overcome my fear of that said colour and complete the challenge set.

Here is the sketch...

here is my effort!



The challenge over at Everybody art challenge this week is for blue/brown/white. I love this combo and just had to give it a go.

Here is my card....its another easel card which I just love making and a Magnolia stamp which i adore!!

The sentiment on the bottom section is a free digital stamp that I got from somewhere but i forget now where. i need to write these things down for future reference!! The paper is from Kaiser and I have used Faber Castell pencils and OMS to colour with.

Anywho...thanks for looking!
