Darling Marci

Thanks heaps to Susan from Stamp on Me who gave me the inspiration to create this circle card using this cute image, Darling Marci from La-La Land Crafts . Susan has a tutorial on her blog that you should pop over and have a look at. It even shows some paper piecing that I didn't quite get to - I was having too much fun with my Copic colouring. I have a few more La-La cards to post so stay tuned - please :)
I am entering Miss Marci into the following challenges:
C.R.A.F.T challenge #99 Flowers (cause there are some there)
Delicious Doodles #22 Anything Goes (My favourite type of challenge)
Crafty Pad #118 Circles (Done that!)
Craft your Passion #55 Show us your layers (I'm showing you)
Creative Inspiration #58 Use a digi (That's Miss Marci)
Paper Sundaes #66 Sparkle and Yellow (Duh!)
Stamptacular #108 Pile it on (Again with the layers)
Ellephantastic #25 Anything but square or rectangle (Will circles do?)
 and I am also uploading her to the La La Land gallery and Copic Australia facebook page (I sound confident, don't I? I may have to ask my teenagers for help on that one)

Dream Big

Now this is a card that I just made. No more of those "had it for a while" cards (well maybe I have got a couple more of those stashed away). I love colouring these Kenny K images with my copics. Actually I love colouring anything with my copics.
The dog better watch out or he might have highlights soon. LOL.
This week Kenny K have an "Anything Goes" challenge #41,
Flutterby Wednesday #151 and
Top Tip Tuesday #30 both have "Open" challenges and
Incy Wincy have a Bright and Bold challenge #90

Find Joy Every Day

This image makes me think of a Spring day. I am sure that only Snow White or Cinderella actually had birds come and 'willingly' land on them while they were singing a tune and dancing amongst the flowers on a sunny day.....  and obviously this little girl from Pure Innocence too.
Another card that I made a while ago - just waiting for a 'Spring' Challenge so I will enter it in the following:
Totally Papercrafts #62 Springtime
Card Makin Mammas #19 Spring Colours
Cupcake Craft #138 Lots of Layers
Incy Wincy #90 Bright and Bold
Do you Stack up #15 Scallops

Hello Friend

So far, April has been a busy month for me. A son who turned 18, a niece who turned 22 and close friends who also keep having birthdays. Not that I mind - any excuse to raise a glass and make a card is okay with me.
Note: Be careful of wine drinking and card making at same time.
Plus, I have been planning classes for this coming term. I did say 'planning' but not actually 'making'. Must get onto that!!! I know what will happen - I will have the perfect card planned in my head, sketched out on my notebook and when it finally comes time to put it together - Euck! So then back to the drawing board. Does that happen to anyone else?
I made this simple card a few weeks ago now (love doing that poking holes technique thingy) and thought that I would enter it into a few Easter challenges.
C.R.A.F.T #98 Easter
Delightful Sketches Easter
Simply Create #41 Egg-tra Special
Belli Challenge #115 Eggs/Bunnies
Crazy Challenge #62 Easter
Ooh-La-La #77 Happy Easter
StampsRUs #18 Easter Theme
Allsorts Challenge #98 Not a square

Hectic life!

I am in severe withdrawal!!! I have missed my blog, I have missed all of your blogs and I haven't entered a challenge in ages.  Life has been hectic - Copic courses, classes at work, sample cards, paper shows and just when it is starting to return to some kind of normal - the kids will be on school holidays any day now for two and a half weeks. I hope that I am able to sleep in - on at least some of those days.
I made this card a while ago for a friend recovering from an op but for all of you who are overwhelmed with 'stuff' at the moment - I hope that you get some 'me' time soon. 
I don't actually mean 'me' - I mean 'you' :-)
I am entering this card in the following challenges:
One Stop Craft Challenge #125 Spots and Dots
Card Ideas Spotty Dotty
By the Cute and Girly #April Cute and Girly
CES Challenge #30 Children
