Here's my attempt at Loretta's regular Monday Sketch Challenge (No 96), I've been trying to upload it to the docrafts gallery but as is usual lately, it's not working!! It's not my favourite card that I've ever made but I had a job finding 3 stamps that were small enough to fit at the side, so my options were a bit limited...what do you think of it anyway?
I've been having great fun over the last couple of days colouring in lots of Tilda images with distress inks - just need to make 'em up into cards now so that'll give you something to look forward to! Right, better go and get myself off to bed, we're going out tomorrow and I'll be good for nothing at this rate! Nighty, night.

Ingredients: Stamps: Hero Arts Sparkle Clear Bugs and Kisses - main images coloured with promarkers, background images stamped with distress inks, Docrafts Glitter Ribbon.

Do you remember 'My Little Pony'? I used to play with them when I was a girl and as soon as I saw this stamp, it took me back to my childhood! A couple of firsts with this card - it's my first digi stamp (but definitely won't be my last!!) and it's the first one I've done using my new prismacolour pencils and sansodor. I did make the card to take part in the papertake weekly challenge, but I don't know what was wrong with my computer last night - it was really playing up, and I couldn't scan anything in or do much of anything, so in the end I just had to shut everything down. The challenge was to use 'Ice Cream Colours', so guess what mine was......yep, mint choc chip. Anyway, cos of my bloomin' computer, I missed the deadline, so I'll just have to share it with you here instead! Nevermind, still got the old brain cells working! Hope you likey. TTFN xx

Ingredients: Digi Stamp - The Greeting Farm, coloured with prismacolour pencils, Brown Card - Coredinations, Spotty Card - C & C, Corner Punches - WRMK Corner Chomper and Martha Stewart, Sentiment - Craftwork Cards, Ribbon and Gems from stash.

Had a nice day today - went round to a very old family friend's house with my mum and Sam because their son was 30. Always nice to see and have a catch up with people that you don't see very often. This is the card I made for him. Hope y'all like it!

Ingredients: I used a gatefold card and covered it with American Crafts papers, then used my Slice to cut out the 30 and the champagne glasses out of some pearl card and used Papermania Glitterations for the 'Happy Birthday' and 'Richard'.

This is the card I made for the DLG challenge over on the docrafts forum - the DLG standing for distress, layers and glitter. Now distressing is not usually my normal style but I thought I'd give it a go and in the end, I really enjoyed it. I also followed the ICSketch #70, so I'll also be putting it into their challenge, which is the first time I've entered a challenge anywhere but docrafts! Hope you like it!! Let me know.

Ingredients: Papers - K & Co (I think! I've had them lying around for ages and this is the first time I've used them), Image - Magnolia Tilda watercoloured with Tim Holtz Distress Inks, then sprayed with perfect pearls mixed with water, which gives it a lovely shimmer IRL. I also used the inks around the edges of all the layers after distressing them with a distress tool. Added Distress Stickles to the horizontal layers to give them a bit of dimension (and also for the G part of the DLG!!)

I don't mean to blow my own trumpet but I LOVE this card! There's an ABC Challenge on the docrafts site (for a change!) and this week, it's U for Uniform - you also had to use a ribbon and at least 3 buttons. I did this card as a bit of a joke - the stamper's uniform!! Hee, hee!

Ingredients: Stamp - The Greeting Farm coloured with promarkers. Paper - Imaginisce. Pearl Card - Anita's, embossed with Swiss Dots Cuttlebug embossing folder. Ribbon, Bow and Buttons - all Papermania Capsule Collection.
