12 today (DS197)

Hi there friends.

Well this week has flown by.

Our baby turned 13 yesterday. We now have FOUR teenage girls! YIKES!

Today I have a new  DECONSTRUCTED SKETCH for you.

I haven't used my copics for this one......


The yellow actually is much softer in real life.

I've used lots of MFT dies.

Here is Jen's fab sketch.....



For more inspiration, check out the fabulous work of my team mates below.


I hope you have time to play along this week.
Thanks for stopping by, and I'll be back with the next challenge in a couple of days.

Hugs,

TRACEY XO

HAPPY BIRTHDAY ~DS196~

Hello friends,

I'm a little late posting this week's DECONSTRUCTED SKETCH

We celebrate two Birthdays in our house this week, and I've used DS196 for my eldest daughter's 19th Birthday card.


I've used the super-sweet new digital image from SATURATED CANARY called BOOK CLUB.

(My eldest girl is quite the bookworm)

BOOK CLUB can be found for purchase HERE

I usually like to use bright papers and embellishments but I fell in love with a new range of Prima patterned paper, which I have used here.

I hope you like my card.

I hope you have time to play along this week.

MAKE A WISH

Hi there friends.

I hope you all had a lovely Easter. I certainly did.

I managed to find some colouring time and this is the end result.....



The image is SURPRISE, by Saturated Canary.

You can find her to purchase in Krista's shop HERE

The balloons scared me a bit, but I was determined not to let them get the better of me.

The colors are actually all quite pastel in real life,  including the patterned papers, but they haven't photographed too well at all.

DS ~195~ MUCH LOVE

Hi there.

It's time for a new DECONSTRUCTED SKETCH

I hope you like my card.....


I almost always make square cards, so was proud of myself for managing to make a long skinny card like Jen's sketch.

Image is a new digi from PPINKYDOLLSART

Patterned paper is a new Easter range from Bella Blvd.

Digi is printed on Xpress blending card and coloured with copic markers.

Here is Jen's fab sketch....

I hope you have time to play along this week.

COFFEE AND DONUTS

Hi there friends.

Today's post is purely for fun.

I hope you like my card.....


Sometimes I think my cards are too bright, so I challenged myself today to choose different colours, and also not as many.

Apart from her black jacket, I'm not sure that I succeeded, but I'm kind of happy with my card nonetheless.

MUCH LOVE for Saturated Canary

Hi there,
 
Today is the start of a new SATURATED CANARY CHALLENGE
 
The theme is FLOWERS.
 
I hope you like my card....
 
 
 
I've used this gorgeous new Spring image which you can find to purchase in Krista's store.
 
I've tried a watercolor background for something different, thanks to the wonderfully talented Alyce at Kit and Clowder.
 
I think i overdid the color a little, but I'm liking the general effect.
 
Make sure you check out the DT and guest DT cards on the challenge blog if you are looking for some  added inspiration.
 
I hope you'll find time to join in with us too.
 
Thanks so much for stopping by.
 
Hugs,
 
Tracey XO
