Fairytale friday

Good morning bloggers!
Just a quick post to tell you that Teddy Bo has only a few days again of the Buttons and Bow/Easter challenge and Colette has again a little fairytale about our week in the tower for you :)
I love to read it and if you never have, you really should! You find it here
I have made a birthday card for Ted Angus, one of Gabriellas friends. They are all turing four years theese days (Oh my God time flies! Strange that I don't get older...)

These tabs Gayle,- Mummybear (Teddy Bo owner and designer) made when I was away in the sun earlier this winter and I have been dying to colour them up since I saw them!

Simple card, but often I think the image is so great that the card don't need anything more and after all it is a boy card!

Coloured with Copic markers
My papers are scrap leftovers from here and there...
Wooden buttons, ribbon from stash and the rub on comes from MF

Hope you liked it :)
I am working this weekend at my old work as my new job is closing over the easter (so stupid...!!) so I guess I will be working my pretty off!!
But next week is vacation :)
Can't wait!

Big hugs

Puppet on a string

Good morning my sweet friends!
I want to show you my newest make with D'Arcy from D'Arcy's Diaries. This image is just drop dead gorgeous and I loved colouring her in :)
She is called "Puppet on a string"

Our current challenge is Ribbon and lace and we are dying to see your creations. It's so fun to see that a lot of you seems to like D'Arcy (almost!!) as much as me :)

 My inside and back

I think the colours just make a really happy card!
I think I either keep this one or I send it to someone that really need a chin up :)

That sentiment is just fantastic I think.

found in the D'Arcy shop here
Coloured with Copics

Flowers from WOC
Organza ribbon and white pearls

They are wonderful and I am totally in love :)

Two weeks ago we started our first challenge at D'Arcy's Diaries and we had some amazing beautiful entries that totally knocked the socks of both Gayle and the whole DT :)
This time we give you a new challenge and for most of you I guess this one is a pretty easy one too :)

Ribbon and lace
-Use one or both on your project 

I have used seambinding and organza ribbon on my card, and this time I have tryed something new for me.
I have coloured the background of my image like the dark sky, not sure how well I think it went, and it sure need some more practice, but here you have it!!
Hope you like it :)
Isn't this image totally amazing?

Coloured with Copics
Glitter on stars
Seambinding and ribbon from stash and the dry grass (halm in norwegian!!!) from Panduro
Flower from WOC and pearls from Edna :)

You will find everything about it here

Until next time....

More Some Odd girl!

I made a card this weekend with one of my newest images from Some Odd girl.
You really should check out their blog as the design team is wonderful, so creative and really inspiring for those that love to colour. You find the blog HERE and the shop HERE.
I have used the wonderful sketch Kristy made, so I would love to enter the challenge at Some Odd girl.
This image is called Angel Kaylee and she is coloured with my Copics as usual
Again I have used my favorite colour on her clothes... BG70-72-75-78 and this time I paired it with a lovely spring green colour. I think it made a perfect match! :)
At Copic Marker Europe they ask you to use your favorite skin colours and I have used E 11-00-000 and R20 for cheeks.

The inside to compliment the front using the lovely spring papers from Pion design.

Back with my personal stamp and quite simple :)

The green and white papers comes from MME, Lost and found.
Swirl from Prima.
The fantastic text is a freebie from Create with TLC and I dotted around it with glitter

Hope you like my card today, can't wait to hear what you think about it :)

Some Odd girl

I made this card a while back for a friend of mine, but I haven't got around blogging it before now.
Before I left for Thailand I bought my first Some Odd Girl images and gosh, I just love them!!
I can really see addiction coming... LOL
This one is a digi image called "bu'fly Tia and friend"
Quite simple design, but I like it that way :)
Papers from Alla Prima 6x6 collection

The image is cut out with a spellbinder, leaving her feet hanging :)

Back to compliment the front

Normally I do the insides too, but I was in such a rush before leaving for Thailand, I just skipped it!
The lovely image is coloured with Copic, added Atyou spica pen here and there and some Glossy
 too :)

Enjoy your sunday :)
hugs, Jill

Dog walkies

Hi blogland friends!
I am home today, have some days off work and the princess is home sick so we have been doing some crafting  :)
I have been dying to colour up this lovely girl from D'Arcy's Diaries latest release. The image is called "Dog walkies" and she is gorgeous I think!
I have coloured her with my Copics and my favorite colours theese days seem to be the BG 70-78
Copic marker Europe has a challenge going that is doodling on the image, and since I have never done that before, I had to try :) So D'Arcy has gotten some spots on her sleeves and her purse. I have used the Copic multiliner 0.3 for it and I think the effect is supercool :)
I just love all the D'Arcy's Diaries images and if you want to try them out yourself, you can find them here. We have just started our first challenge with DD and you find it here

My inside to compliment the front

Image is DARCYSDIARIES_022 called Dog walkies
Coloured with my Copics and added spots to her sleeves and doodling on her purse.
Cheery Lynn flourish swirl die found here
Flowers from Prima og WOC
The wonderful papers comes from Creative Imaginations

I am entering D'Arcy here:

Have a nice day my friends
Hugs, jill
