Papelitos Challenge

Hi there, I have some good news for you, last week I was asked if I'd like to join the Papelitos Design Team,  of course I said yes, then the next day I was asked to join another DT, it always seems to come at once, unfortunetly there are only so many hours of playtime in a day so I had to decline the second one.
Papelitos Stamps are a company I found a few weeks ago, My Peter card from last week is one of Cristinas stamps, she is a very talented artist and a massive variety of stamps for all tastes, she is also adding plenty of new images as well. If you pop over to the papelitos stamps challenge blog you can see the wonderful creations from my fellow DT's. The theme this week is "Pretty in Pink" and I chose Machamama , isn't she great, I cooured her with copics and prismas, used K & Co papers, and pink gems, I found an old feather charm and some beads to make my embellies with. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, so I'm sure she's pretty in someones

 I've used Melancholy girl with small bag from flonzcraft one of our sponsors this week.
I coloured with copics, used first edition papers, some ribbon and buttons from my stash, and the friends are some stickers I've had for years.

Fifty Shades

Hi there, I thought I'd share my Fifty Shades card with you, I thought the sketch  over at sketch and stash this week was perfect for this lovely digi from saturated-canary by Krista Smith called Grey Tie
I coloured her with copics, used nesties, silver grey ribbon, and the flourish die from spell binders.
I'm on book three at the moment, my Dad actually read them and really enjoyed them,lol.
He has one of those kindles and books are much cheaper, but personally I don't think you can beat the feel of a  book in your hand,

The Paper Shelter #76

Hi there, we have a great theme this week at the paper shelter its all about "circles"
I used Elf Knight , I chose this because it was the closest thing I had to a Horse racing theme,
It was my sons Birthday this week and we went to the racers to celebrate, I must say it was such fun , I've never been before and I really enjoyed it, there was only six races but I didn't manage to oick one single winner, in one race there was only four horses and mine still came last, but at least the jockey managed to stay on for that race.
Still back to my card, I coloured it with copics, used K & Co papers, nesties, Little Claire sentiment stamp, 3D laquer, and Button border die from Memory box.
