Papertake Weekly - All Things Girlie !

Good afternoon ! Have you seen the news that the weather is supposed to be picking up by the weekend and more like Summer next week ? Whooo hooo about time too ! I wonder how long it will take before we are moaning we are too hot ?!!! 

Well, it's Tuesday again and that can only mean one thing - our new challenge over at Papertake Weekly

This week our challenge is ALL THINGS GIRLIE !

We are being sponsored by The Ribbon Girl.


 I decided to use this little cutie by Lili of the Valley and she has been coloured with Copics.

The sentiment is from a stamp set by TPC Studio "Playful Expressions"

The papers are My Mind's Eye "Fine and Dandy", Tickled Pink "Cheerful" and I machine stitched them all.

The corner was cut with a Cheery Lynn corner die.

We hope you can join us in our challenge this week and we look forward to seeing all your girlie creations.

I am entering my card into the following challenges : 

Lili's Little Fairies - Pretty In Pink (I'm hoping that her pink dress will qualify for this challenge !)

Let's Ink It Up - All Girl

Thank you so much for your visit and have a great Tuesday !

This week our challenge is "Strawberries and Cream". 

You can use this as either a colour inspiration i.e. red/white/cream or do something which reminds you of Summer !

Thank you to the Stamp Fairy who gave me this cutie to work with !

 
 The image is one of the "Peeker Kids" and she has been coloured with Copics.

Simon Says Challenge - Tags or ATC's

Simon Says Stamp

It's Wednesday and time for another challenge over at Simon Says Challenge !

Thank you to everyone who joined in our Sporty/Patriotic Challenge last week.  It was such a great challenge and all your creations were just amazing to look at - thank you.

This week, our challenge is TAGS or ATC's

Just in case you don't know what an ATC is, there is a good description on the Challenge Blog but really its a mini piece of art work the size of a cigarette card.

This week the Design Team are featuring Tim Holtz products.

As usual Heidi will be giving one lucky entrant a $50 voucher to her FANTASTIC Simon Says Stamp Superstore !!



 
I decided to make a couple of ATC's. I haven't made these for a long time and I had forgotten just how enjoyable they are to make.  You don't have to make them all "arty" you can make them cute too !  I shall have to find a bit of spare time and knock up a few cute ones !




The second ATC I made to open up.

A list of the goodies I used are linked below.

We hope you can join us in our challenge this week and we look forward to seeing what you make.

Thank you so much for your visit and I hope you have a great Wednesday !
