Creative Cowgirls Challenge #10 - Easter/Spring + Blog Hop

Sorry I haven't been around this last couple of weeks, as usual life got in the way but I'm hoping to get around to everyone next week.
This fortnight over at the Creative Cowgirls Challenge we are having a blog hop.  If you hop over to the Challenge you will find all the details and the members of the Posse who are in this  hop.  At Creative Cowgirls we try to keep the hop short as we know everyone is busy with day to day life, for this reason we keep them to approx 8 blogs, where you only need to leave a little love and then back to the Challenge to enter your Easter/Spring card.

Here is the card I made from the cute images provided by Chi Chi Memories, the set is called Happy Easter.  My daughter coloured in the flowers and bunnies and I coloured in the egg to match.  It doesn't show up very well but I have layered the egg, Happy Easter and flowers using Pin flair gel.  All the papers are scraps from my stash.  

We are being sponsored by 2 fantastic Sponsors this Challenge/Hop.  They are

Hop over to the Challenge, see the fantastic work of my fellow Posse members and join in the fun.

Creative Cowgirls Challenge #9 - Monochrome

Is it really Challenge #9 over at Creative Cowgirls?  

Yes it is I hear you say, so without further ado here is my 'not sure what to call it', I have made the base but can't decide whether to attach it to a card or make it into a doorplate/hanger for one of my Daughter's friends who likes dragons.  My Daughter chose the colour orange to be the colour I used for this Monochrome Challenge.  I coloured in the image using Copics and Promarkers and the background was made using Dovecraft chalks.  The various orange paper/card was from stash and edged with a Sakura calligraphy pen.  Bottom cut using a MS punch.
This cute little Dragon is one of Teri's gorgeous images, which you can find at Delicious Doodles.  Teri has a fantastic mix of images in her shop from simple images like mine to pencil shaded images (sorry I don't know how else to describe them) these are images which you can use on their own or highlight with colour.  She also does a range of fantasy images including dragons, fairies, skulls etc.  Whichever ones you chose, I guarantee they will be beautiful and you will really enjoy using them.  If you need any inspiration Teri and her DT do some awesome work (so do our Posse :-)) so hop over and take a look and maybe enter the Delicious Doodle Challenge Teri runs.  

You should also hop over and take a look at the fabulous projects our fantastic Posse has made and enter the Creative Cowgirls Challenge while you are there.
