Lots of layers

Good afternoon,

Today I'm sharing a card I made for the 4 Crafty Chicks challenge.. which is "Anything Goes" with a twist of "lots of layers" I had fun layering up LOTS of different bits of paper to create the card layout.. then coloured up this image "Best Friends" from The Greeting Farm.. (YES I STILL LOVE them hehe )who is also "wearing lots of layers" - unlike me in this heat,  tee hee



Hope your Monday/ week has started off well.. not sure where mine went... Well come to think of it I do...  down a rabbit hole of videos and iphones and imovie and youtube. I've started off a new youtube channel for my business Mad for Markers and I coloured this stamp in the first video :D

All you need in life is a Friend who has chocolate

Hello everyone,

I'm back again... three days in a row... we're cooking with gas .. well almost! (Let's see if this can be kept up) .. There's plenty of challenge blogs out there to keep the inspiration coming :D 

Today I'm sharing a card I made for the AUD Sentiments Challenge .. which is to create a card "for a friend" ... I love this sentiment stamp which I've cut up to fit on the card.. and It would make a great card for a friend.. although would probably need to be accompanied by a block or box of choccies :D


The image is Creeper Tuesday from The Greeting Farm and has been coloured with the following Copic markers:
Skin: E50, E31, E42
Dress: R81, R83
Hair: V000:V12, V15, 0
Crown: Y26, Y32, 0
Boots: C5, C8

Thanks for Stopping By,

You had me at Hello

Good afternoon,

Hope you are having a great weekend so far... ours has been pretty quiet so far which is kind of nice.

Today I'm sharing a card I made for the Cute Card Thursday Challenge .... this is one of my all time favourite stamps from the Greeting Farm - Miss Anya Treats ... the one word sentiment "Hello" is from a Kaisercraft stamp set :)


The image has been coloured with Copic markers :)

Have a great rest of the weekend!

Southern Girl's pattern trio

I have missed blogging and hope to get back into it a bit more this year, I've looked up some challenges to get me started  ... There are tons out there and great to help get inspired, so I have a few cards lined up to share over the next couple of days :D It's awfully hot here still downunder and so making cards is a great thing to do sitting under the airconditioning!




Today I am entering the Southern Girls Challenge which is to have three or more patterned papers on the project... I have used three :D I've been trying to use up all the bits and pieces of paper I have here :D


The image is Love It from The Greeting Farm and has been coloured with the following Copic markers:
Skin: E000, E21, E43, R81, RV63
Blues: B21, B23, B24, B26, B99
