Swiss Pixie Lucy

Hi Everyone,
Boy oh Boy the time seems to get away from me, in my own defense I have been working more hours so that means less time for crafting, ok I have made my excuses lol, I will get on with it.
I made this card just cause I wanted to no particular reason and it was a real joy to do.
I thought I would have a go at a center step card, the tutorial is on  Splitcoast stampers .
This little sweetie is from the new CC Designs release Swiss Pixie Lucy and she is sitting on the Swiss Woodland Daisy.
 Here is a side view to give you a better idea of the folds.
I also had a go at just a dotty background, I thought it suited her with a softer look, I still can't decide if I like it or not , the jury is still out , lol. You tell me?
Did you notice those pretty corners , they are from Make it Crafty , and are chipboard, very delicate and beautiful. I have painted them with Kaiser olive to match my card.

Cheeky Monkey

Hi Everyone,
Today I have created a card for my great Nephew's 2nd Birthday. 
Moving Along with the Times is having a challenge this week and the lovely Sue is your host, Sue would like to see Cute Critters, and I thought I would use this little Cheeky Monkey from CC Designs, he is actually called Birthday Monkey and I think he is the cutest!
Now the family live a long way away from us, so I don't get to see the little fellow this is going to, but if he is anything like his father was when he was little this should suit him perfectly, his dad was always getting into mischief. 

Here is a snap of the inside, all the sentiments and stars are from a Gina K Designs set called Candles on your cake, I had a few nervous moments when I stamped the stars around the monkey, I thought what if I muck it up now, does anyone else ever feel like that? You want to do it , but a bit scared your going to destroy all your hard work. But in this case it was all good, breathing a sigh of relief.....
Here is a close up of him, notice the cupcake is chocolate, just had to be chocolate ( my favourite ).

Party Time Lucy

Hi Everyone,
Does anyone remember when little girls went to a party they wore Black patent leather shoes with white socks and there very best dress ? 
Well when I saw this image from CC Designs from All That Scraps called Party Time Lucy , this is what it reminded me of, I suppose it still happens a little but times have changed and kids wear all sorts of out fits now. Gee I am starting to sound like I am a hundred lol.
Ok I have used this adorable image and she is off to a Birthday party.
Anything goes at the ATS Challenge  this time around so jump in and have a go , there are always great prizes on offer.
It's a shame you can't see it in the photo , but I used a Sakura clear glaze pen on her shoes to give them the shine of Black patent leather, it looks great irl trust me!
Here is a close up of Lucy, at Copic Oz they have a challenge at the moment involving the brand new release colours for 2012, now they did ask to create something with the closest colours to the new release, 
and as I buy my copics a few at a time, I didn't have ones that were very close on the list, it made me realise just how far I have to go with my collection. The prize is the new 12 set , so what a way to start building those colour families !
Here is the inside made to match the front, I am really trying hard at the moment to make sure everything follows through, Oh and by the way the layout for my card came from the Brilliant Bev on her tutorials and sketches page of her blog All the things I love if you haven't already check out her amazing work.

New Challenge at Bizzy Becs

Hi Everyone,
I hope you are all ready for a brand new challenge?
Here at Bizzy Becs we are and we want you to join in the fun. Our lovely Debra has chosen the theme this month and Debra would like to see , All white except the image and you must have hearts somewhere on your card, of course it is the month of Love, being February.
For my card I have used an adorable stamp from Whimsy Stamps Jumbo Love which is available at Bizzy Becs Online Store.
This cute couple come with the sentiment and bows as a set, so it's an extra great value red rubber stamp set. I have used my grey copic's  to colour the image , He is in the cool and neutral greys and She is in the warm greys, I havn't coloured anything just grey before , but I was pleased how this cute couple turned out.
On the inside I have just wrote a little verse and added some more hearts to match the front. 
The hearts are part of a alphabet set from cuttlebug, and I have embossed them to with cuttlebug swiss dots and craft concepts budding vine embossing folders as per the front. I have distressed around everything with Pumice Stone Distress inks , just for a little more dimension.
