Elephant love

Morning Folks!
This week, the new challenge at Passion for Promarkers is nice and easy:
ADD A CHARM
I don't know about you but I bought lots of charms a few years ago, but now I rarely think to add them to a card! After a bit of a rummage through my charms box, which is largely unsorted, I found something suitable. Me and hubby  celebrated our 24th wedding anniversary yesterday and this is the card I made for him:
 This is a very old rubber stamp by Whimsy stamps that I bought about 6 years ago at a craft show. Looking at the Whimsy site I think it has sadly been discontinued. 
Love the way they are holding trunks!
Paper is Dovecraft and the sentiment is an odd one in my stash - could have been a magazine freebie?

Tropical Holiday

Morning Folks!
Our new theme over at Sparkles Monthly Challenges is 
TROPICAL VACATION
Now of course I'd love to be showing you a beautiful scrapbook page of a gorgeous white sandy beach that I have wandered along, but sadly that's still on my bucket list!!
Instead, here's my bright and cheery card using 'Pig Vacation' from Bugaboo and a very old piece of card from Kanban called Funky Daisy:

Zentangled Flowers

Afternoon Folks!
Sometimes things just don't go to plan - I meant to post this yesterday but just ran out of time! Anyway, hopefully better late than never, here is my card for the new challenge over at Passion for Promarkers which is

FLOWER POWER  

Here's my card using a stamp from Creative Expressions called Zentangled Flower Square. This was such a fun stamp to colour although it did take a while!! I rather stupidly coloured the stamp before thinking about adding a sentiment - yep cart before horse again!! To save messing up, I cut around the frame and aperture and then decided which sentiment to use. Good job I didn't risk my first choice of sentiment because it was too big! In the end I stamped this woodware sentiment in Versamagic and then stuck the coloured frame over the top. Finished off with a few sparkly gems.

Living in a watering can!

Morning Folks!
Hope you're all OK?
The new challenge is just starting over at Penny Black Saturday Challenges , as usual ANYTHING PENNY BLACK GOES
The optional 'Extra' challenge this time is
WATER or WATERCOLOUR
I had a hunt through my PB collection, not that mant obviously water themed stamps lept out at me, but I decided that this cute hedgehog in his watering can would be appropriate:
 Here's a closer look, I'm not quite sure why he is in the watering can, probably best not to ask!

Card Details:
Stamp - PB 'Yearning' coloured with promarkers and pencil
Papers - MME 'Please Spring' and a magazine freebie
Flowers - Prima and Docrafts
Gems and ribbon from stash

It's Snowtime!

Morning Folks! 
The start of a new month, which means that we have a new challenge over at SPARKLES CHRISTMAS CHALLENGE today and the theme is:
IT'S SNOWTIME
I'm trying to be good this year and use some of my older Christmas stamps and papers rather than buying lots of new things. This papers on this card are all odds and ends from my scrap box which have been in there for ages, no idea what they are but I think they go together! The stamp and sentiment are of course LOTV:

Here's the close up view - the stickles had just about dried when I took this piccy!!!
