Add some stamping at Southern Girls Challenge!

Another month gone, another month closer to Christmas... Time is just flying by which brings us to a new challenge at Southern Girls challenge. This fortnight we would like you to "Add some Stamping" to your creations.
We are sponsored by


I loved this challenge as I got to colour one of my many stamps that I have either never coloured up or haven't for a very long time.
So I decided to colour up my favourite Magnolia stamp Tilda with cute skirt. She is just adorable and I love colouring her up.I kept the card pretty simple. I created the background behind Tilda using distress inks, then I used a swirled background stamp which I embossed with embossing powder that I have not used for a very long time. With the scraps left over from the background I punched out some flowers, made the ledge Tilda is sitting on and added the sentiment. I then just added lots of rhinestones.
I hope that you will join us for this fab challenge at Southern Girls Challenge.
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
* A Gem of a Challenge - Birthday Wishes
* Polkadoodles - Anything Goes
* Really Reasonable Ribbon - Anything Goes with Ribbon
* The Paper Shelter - Blooming Days
* Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge - Happy Birthday

Tic Tac Toe at Southern Girl's Challenge!

Before I get into the new challenge I just thought I'd let you know why things are so quiet on my blog.... As you may know I am part of a few design teams - The Digi Bell's, Craft Your Passion and Southern Girls Challenge. Well Craft Your Passion just never started back up after the Christmas break. Lisa who was running the blog just disappeared and never returned so i am hoping that she is ok and just decided life was too busy.. Then in the last month we decided that The Digi Bell's would take a break from designing while Elisabeth Bell spent some time creating. So I am only designing for The Southern Girls challenge which I only do once a month so posts at the moment are only that often. I would love to make more cards and get creative again but I have had a few health issues that I am still dealing with so hopefully in the not to distance future I will get creative again.

So now it is time to start our new challenge at Southern Girls challenge. Our theme is Tic Tac Toe

Lacy Sunshine

I used the middle row of the bingo board - Dies, Image, Bling

I used Rory Life is Grand from Lacy Sunshine Stamps. I coloured Rory in with Tria markers and added a rhinestone to the flower on her hat. I used kaisercraft papers and used a border punch for the decorative edges. I then die cut some butterflies out, added the hearts and the rhinestones. I hope that you can join us for this fortnights challenge at Southern Girls Challenge.

Zoe Butterfly!

It is my turn to post over on The Digi Bell's blog and it is certainly long overdue. I must sincerely apologise.. I know this has become a regular occurrence but I truly just am just forgetful...
Anyway I am here and I absolutely love the card I just created. I am also going to use this as my Elisabeth Bell's World challenge card as the theme is "All about Butterflies". 
I coloured Zoe Butterfly in with tria markers and die cut her out. I die cut out the balloons (which were a gift from Jennifer then all the other embellishments are from a Kaisercraft paper pad - save the date.
I hope that you can join us over at Elisabeth Bell's World challenge. We only have two entries so great chance of winning some fab digi's. Just remember to use an Elisabeth Bell image. Zoe was a freebie from signing up to Elisabeth Bell's creative e-book.

Elisabeth Bell's newest digi and Blog Hop with The Digi Bell's!

Can you believe it is time for another blog hop with The Digi Bell's sharing a gorgeous new Elisabeth Bell digi. Hopefully you have been to The Digi Bell's Blog for the lineup and made your way here from there. And while there you would have seen our gorgeous new digi

Dainty Dolly with Dandelion

Our challenge for this hop was to make something OTP so I decided to create a door sign.

I coloured this adorable image in with tria markers and chameleon pens (which I haven't got the hang of using yet). I used papers from a kaisercraft paper pad (happy snaps) to create the sign, inked the word adore and covered it in crystal effects, added some rhinestones to the butterfly and added the button to finish it off. That is it from me... If you would like this image now then head on over to Elisabeth Bell's digi collection or just continue on with the hop for your chance to win this adorable image. It's now time to head on over to Linda's blog.
Happy Hopping
