Almost Done

This is my entry for PBSC, I was totally at a loss as to what I could come up with for this challenge of Patchwork sorry got it wrong it's Paper Patch, hope it's the same thing, so wasn't going to bother & this morning wakened up remembering about this little stamp I haven't used for ages & all these squares I've had for years from a scrapbook kit,added a piece of lace & mounted her with foam pads, decided to leave it slightly unfinished, so here we are, nice & simple.

I've watercoloured this image snips & scraps hope that's right will check later.
Square are from K&Co
Lace trim
Scissor button
The tag is from the same kit.

Many thanks for any comments which are always appreciated,

Hedgie in the bunker

This is my entry for Friday Sketchers, also for PB challenge over on dc forum.
I chose golf as I am surrounded by four golf courses, though I actually don't play.
I thought this little hedgie was battling out of the sand bunker, hence the sandy colours, then my son pointed out he was teeing off, hence the tee so apologies to any golfers , but I still think it's more fun to have him covered in sand!

I have used PB Missed You
Image set into nesties circles
Basic Grey DP
Tim Holts distress inks

Many thanks for any comments which are always appreciated. Ann x

Princess Tilda Invites You

This is my second new Tilda, I had a pre budget splurge.... just in case Mr Chancellor was going to curb my stamp purchases (any excuse) so got four PB & 2 Tilda's.
Anyhow back to Tilda's Garden Party everyone's invited.

I have used the Sketch Saturday layout & Just Magnolia Challenge theme of In The Garden.

I have used Princess Tilda image coloured with Promarkers, Sakura silver sparkle for tiara & white souffle for the gloves.
DP is Imaginesce double sided Just Imagine
Bazill Bling & white pearlescent for circles & mat
Paper & ribbon roses
MS butterfly.
I hope everyone is enjoying the sunshine, I'm off to wash my blinds, then pilates
& hopefully sit down & read my book in the garden for the rest of the day.
many thanks for any comments which are always appreciated.

Two challenge card

This card is for challenges & a birthday.
I've used the Friday Sketchers layout , the holiday theme for PBSC & man's birthday.
My son's friend has red hair & likes cats, so thought this was appropriate, I was also told no fancy bits like flowers or gems, so kept it simple.

I've used PB image Aloha which has been watercoloured
Basic Grey papers
MS shell border punch
Aloha sentiment stamp
I hope he liked the card as my son took to him last night.

This is my entry for this weeks PBSC challenge.
I seem to be making heavy weather of everything so far & nothing was going on straight, all this heat must be affecting my brain, I did have another one done but used a different shape in the middle so not sure if it would match the challenge, so thought it best to do another.
I have used PB Frolic, which is watercoloured,
a mix of Basic Grey DP,
ribbon ,
a Prima flower & some small punched flowers odd bits of yellow card for matting.
I hope this fits the challenge.
Off to have a nice cuppa.
Many thanks for any comments which are always appreciated.
