A new challenge over at Besties.

Good morning friends.

Today see's the start of a new challenge over at Besties. The theme this week is to add a something metal. There are so many adorable Besties it is just so difficult to decide which Bestie to use. Such a hard job I have!!!

For this weeks challenge I have coloured the adorable Derby Hat Darlins Trio. You can buy this here at Sherries Etsy store and also here at the Scrapbook Stamp Society. This was a joy to colour - may have to colour this one again as I had so many colour combo's I would have loved to use.

I have coloured the image with my Copic and Flexi Markers. The papers are from Nitwit Collectons.

The flowers, ribbon and metal heart are all from the The Pretty Little Ribbon Shop which is unfortunately closing down. If you hurry,you may be able to grab a bargain.

I have added some Frantage to the image - love this stuff. The butterfly must be a favourite of mine as I think I must use it on every card I make. Perhaps I should take inspiration from Jules blog Always with a heart and change mine to always with a butterfly!!" The butterfly is by Memory Box and is available from many on line stores.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges

A New Challenge at Songbird

Hello again.

This is my first post for today to tell you about the new challenge that is starting over at Songbird Challenge. We have been sponsored by Pink Gem and the theme is All Creature Great and Small. They have some extremely cute little creatures and it would be lovely to see some Pink Gem Designs, but it is not necessary.

I have used the adorable Baby Boy Sleeping which you can find here. One of the great joys of card making for me is colouring all the adorable images but, for today's card, because of a shortage of time I have used the pre coloured image. This done come alongside the black and white image for you to colour.

The papers are from Pink Petticoat. The Ribbon is from The Pretty Little Ribbon Shop. which as I mentioned earlier (or maybe I didn't depending on which of today cards I post first)!!! are closing down.

The blue flower is from my stash and the sprays of white flowers - my favourite of all time at the moment are from Live and Love Crafts.
The dangling hearts are called Precious hearts and are available from many on line stores.  The arch sentiment is from Scrap-a-licious-times. She has mad available for us crafters some free download sentiments. A very kind lady - thank you. I made this round sentiment larger and cut in across the middle so that it fitted nicely in the corner.

I am entering this card into the following Challenges

Stamp n Doodle - Feeling Blue
