Special Ladies at LCI


It's time for another challenge at Ladybug Crafts Ink - and this time it is the turn of the super-talented Julie to choose, and she has picked 

You can interpret this however you like - Mothers Day, a special birthday, or just a fabulous card for a friend or relative.

All the DT have used images from the Nikki range - this is probably where I should confess just how much I love this range of images, as they were what got me into colouring and cardmaking in a big way - and I have loved returning to use Original Nikki - available as a digi here or a stamp here, or
check out the entire Nikki range in either digi here or stamps here

I couldn't resist going all out on this card - I think I have done enough plain and simple cards of late, and I was just crying out to get everything on here!!  So there's ribbon, flowers, lace, die cuts, pearls, cheesecloth, stitching, charms, brads, glitter, gorgeous papers, and some frantage embossing power too (super impressed with myself at finally using this stuff!!)  I really love this card - and I think Nikki has a hint of 50's glam to her :-)  Either way, how stylish is she with her shades up on her head, and her cute pooch at her feet:-)

I've coloured her with my copics, sticking to pale lilac tones

Hope you like it!

Hugs, Sue xx

All things metallic at Top Tip Tuesday


Can you believe two weeks have gone by already and it's time for a new challenge over at Top Tip Tuesday?  No, me neither!

This fortnights theme is 

I went down the metal route, and made a funky card for a teenage boy (always find boys cards really tough!  Teenage boys especially so!!), and tucked this fabulous image from Ladybug Crafts Ink - he's called Skateboarder Josh and is from the Teenager range

Isn't he cool!  I've teamed him with MME papers, and a zip and metal button

I really loved how this image coloured up

Take 3, 5, or 7 at Top Tip


I'm so sorry I've not been about much, just when I thought life was going better, more curve balls have been thrown.  I'm hoping the rest of the year is better than the first two months!

Anyway, how can I be down when I have been colouring this little guy up for this fortnights Top Tip Tuesday challenge, which is 3, 5 or 7 - interpret how you like!!

Don'tcha just lurve his ears!!  This little guy is Take off / Rabbit Traveler - Air plane and he is available from this fortnights sponsors

I wondered about putting glitter on him... but decided not to, might change my mind yet!!

Thanks for stopping by
