Violinist



   The theme for this week's challenge at QKR Stampede is inspired by music along with the usual anything goes.
   Having taught at a music school where the most popular instrument played was the violin (and one of my grand daughters is also learning to play the instrument) I just had to use this image of the turtle violinist (number 24137) which I coloured using Promarkers and then matted onto black card. The background paper has been in my stash box for sometime having printed several sheets to use on an earlier project and was matted and layered onto core'dinations couture cardstock and white card. The happy birthday greeting was free in an old magazine and I attached two card candi to it.

   I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
   Digi Choosday - anything goes
   Passion For Promarkers - just add glitter (the cardstock is glittered)
   Stamping Sensations - anything goes
   Creative Fingers - anything goes

A posy



   I have been having fun using some of the items from my recently purchased Tattered Lace Magical Midnight collection.
   I matted one of the papers printed using the CD ROM onto teal card. After colouring some ribbon to match the card colour using Promarkers I wrapped it round the combination and matted it onto white card. I cut an oval from white card using a Tattered Lace mini ruffle die and attached it to the centre of the card. I die cut three of the Just Because image, decoupaged them and attached it to the oval. I then tucked a mini postcard in behind the flowers and added a bow.

Pirate's treasure



   I was asked to make a birthday card for a four year old called Billy who is mad on pirates. This is what I came up with.
   The digi image is a merger of two digis, the pirate from Deary Dolls and the treasure chest from Doodle Pantry. The words are computer generated. The treasure was coloured using Spectrum Noir Sparkle pens and the remainder using Spectrum Noir and Promarker pens. I cut around the lid of the treasure chest and inserted the happy birthday tag before matting and layering the design onto black and then white card.

Puppy love



   This month the theme for the Dragonfly Dream Challenge is animals and is is being sponsored by Bugaboo Stamps.
   I made the shaped card using the ornamental label card shape dies from Tattered Lace. Before attaching the blue mat to the white base card shape I wrapped ribbon round each end. Using a Promarker pen I added black dots to the ribbon to match the bows in the digi image. This image from bugaboo is called puppy love and was coloured using Promarkers and cut out using a de from the aforementioned set. I used Tattered Lace's vertical sentiment dies to cut the happy birthday from red card. Finally I randomly glued grey pearls and red and white gems onto the sentiment panels.

Treasure!

   i coloured the digi image called one man's trash (number 7102) using Promarkers and after cutting it out dusted the edges using distress ink. I did the same with the sentiment digi (number 16411) and the pieces of white card. I then attached these to pink paper which had been matted onto white card.
