Got the 'Blues'

This weeks Twisted Sister Challenge is to make a Valentine card but NOT using pink or red.  this is not hard with so many gorgeous colours available to us.  I made not one but THREE cards for this challenge - I got carried away colouring! LOL!

 I went for this gorgeous shade of blue, which is not showing up well in the photos - don't know why, but have given up and posting it as is the close up photo is truer to colour!.  I have used a lot of RAK's with this one, I am trying to use more of the gifts I have been sent - so this really is a card full of "LUV!"


The image is from a Blog Candy that I won from Pauline C.....a year's supply of Penny Black Images aloong with some other gorgeous Candy...thanks Pauline - I do use them and love it, but just don't get to it each week!  I have coloured it with chalks and added Kindy Glitz plus a small gem in the centre of each - the gems are from one of my Twisted Sisters, Denna (aka Moonrise)


The DP was won from Steph for being the first to comment on her post (Yay!!) it has been embossed and cut into four, sponged around the edges and layered into plain DP.  The ribbon from my SU Demo and friend Ann, the lace in a  RAK from my stamping friend Maxine (aka Kiwime).  But the sentiment and Windows Slot Punch is mine!!

This was a quick and easy card, I made it waiting for my DD1 to come home from a concert in Sydney...she had gone with the youth Group, overnight and I had to keep myself busy waiting for her to come home...LOL!  I actually started using the sketch from the CCEE challenge and went from memory as my DD2 was on my laptop looking for a new hairstyle - when I had finished the card I was amazed to see that I had got it backwards - the sketch has a square at the front and circles behind - I will link it anyway, seeing as it inspired me! LOL!

I am linking this to the Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge where we are to be inspired by letter 'p' - I have petals and a punch...and some paper (LOL!)

******************************************

 My second card is  made with Mo's Digital Pencil images and are such fun to work with.  I love this Bella & Bronte image, my daughter was horrified to hear that the dog was the one called Bronte!  They are so cute, there is something about the shape of Mo's Digital Pencil images that I just love, it makes them irresistible!


I coloured the image with chalks and a blender pen, distressed all of the edges and added the sentiment from Kaiser!


*****************************************
My next card is also for the  Crafty Creations Challenge, where they are celebrating theirt first Anniversay!  well done Crafty Creations girls - what fun, you have brought us such a variery of challenges in your first year - I am looking forward to the next year!!!


Bella and Bronte has also been coloured with chalks and I have used a gel pen on the swirls on her dress, to highlight them, they have lots of sparkle IRL!! 


Thanks for looking for being so patient and for your fabulous comments, I love seeing that you have been!  It is Saturday here and looks like it is going to be HOT, I hope those of you who are in the cold are managing to keep safe and warm and for those of you heading for a HOT one - don't forget to stay out of the heat and drink lots of water!!  God bless you!
