Penny Black Saturday Challenge 11 No Cards Allowed!

Well this weeks Penny Black Challenge was a toughie!! NO CARDS ALLOWED! I was going to be a coward and wait till next week in the hope that its back to cards again, but then hubby came home from the supermarket with 3 little plants, and three cute plant pots to put them in....

*PING* lightbulb moment!!

These are far too good to put dirt and green stuff in, so I've decided to decorate them, and use them as gift tins.....

So this is my entry for this weeks Penny Black Saturday Challenge what do you think?
Oh, and don't worry about the dirt and green stuff...I sent hubby back out to buy 10 more.....
Just need to make a card to match now...
and I just want to say a HUGE THANKS to Tracy for sending me some stamped images (including this one) Tracy you are a star!!

Sarah Kay Challenge Sketch

Here is my entry for this weeks Sarah Kay Challenge which is a fabulous sketch!

I have to say, I've never coloured, or used a Sarah Kay stamp before now, and I enjoyed it SO much...The detail is fantastic and the images are just beautiful!! couldn't manage to get hubby excited about it, although I DID try.

I made this card for my sister, her birthday isn't until December, but unusually for me, I'm actually THAT far ahead!!

Image is water coloured, and I've added little glitter touches, although you can't see them on the photo...

Papers : DCWV 'Pocket Full Of Posies'

Flowers and Brads: Making Memories

Doodles and Sentiment: Hand drawn/written

Love this sketch layout, think I'll be using it LOTS more..

Thanks for looking!!

Daring Card Makers Challenge 'This Way'

I made this card for my Hubby to let him know I was thinking of him, as he starts his new job today. I wanted to steer clear of the obvious 'New Job' card....

It works perfectly for the Daring Card Makers Challenge 'This Way' in which you have to make a card using arrows....

The stamp is from PENNY BLACK and is called 'crush' and I think its SO sweet, Trouble is i fell in love with it when i saw it, but didn't think about the fact that it does have limited uses! hmmmm.... looks like hubby will be receiving lots of cards!!! Anyway..... the papers are from DCWV and are from the 'pocket full of posies' range, the star button, and mesh flower are from making memories, tag attached with safety pin.... and you guessed it... the arrows are more doodling!!!

my second challenge entry.......ooooh I'm on a roll!!!

'Cold As Ice'

Here is a card I actually made for the Tilda and Co Challenge 'Cold As Ice' But I'm so disorganised, and I didnt get it posted in time.....grrrr!

Still I thought I'd add it anyway.... need to start filling the blog up!
This card is actually quite glittery, but as hard as I tried, I couldn't get it to show up on the photograph! and yes.... more doodling!!

Cute Card Thursday Challenge 24

Okay this is my very first card on this blog, for my very first challenge...ooohh bit nervous!
This is my entry for this weeks Cute Card Thursday Challenge

The Challenge this week is to use BRIGHT COLOURS ....

I wish I could remember where the papers were from, as I'd like more, but I have to cut the top strips off to make them fit in my drawers! The sentiment is printed, and I've drawn a little flower on it, attached to the ribbon with a mini safety pin (although you cant see it very well in the pic!) I've coloured the stamped image with watercolour pencils, and finished it all off with yellow and green flowers, and some doodling (I DO like doodling!)

Hope you like it!!

A Brand New Blog!!

Hi, I'm Paula....

I've been so inspired by all the challenge blogs out there, that I wanted to create a place where I could become a part of all the fun, and share my creations with others.
