Huge post alert!!!

Hi everyone,

I have some mega making up to do.  My modem decided to die on me and i have had to,  what feels like a lifetime, wait for SKY to send me a new one.  Well my lovely postman brought it for me today. What did we ever do without the internet??  Anyway i have some catching upto do so first up is

 A new Design Team i am on, Nicecrane Designs, this is relatively new but the owner Ignacio has some amazing digi stamps and papers go check out his store here, his blog is here and of course we are on CDAC where there are challenges set and a chance to win $30 to spend in the store!

As i have been having internet problems i haven't actually joined in the challenges over there yet but i have made 3 cards using Nicecrane Designs images.

This first card is using an image from The Mark Twain Collection which can be found here.  The image is coloured with prisma pencils except the skin which is Ivory Promarker.  The papers are from some a friend sent me in a swap which is mounted on silver mirri card.  The flowers are from some candy i won a little while ago. The leaves are punched from a Martha Stewart Punch. And the pearls are from a gift that one of my team mates Chris at Incy Wincy.

The second card is using Sweet Fairy DS5 which is available here. Again i coloured with prismas except for the skin as i haven't found the right combination yet. The papers are from the Fizzy Moon Collection.  Butterflies punched from Martha Stewart punch.  Flowers are from Prima. 

And then my 3rd card using Nicecrane designs is this gorgeous cat which is part of the Incredible Friends;  Punky Dunk which is available here.  I have coloured with Prismas pencils and chalks.  The embossed panel is using a Fiskars BricksTexture plate, which i thought was perfect for this image.  The paper again is from the Fizzy Moon Collection.  Ribbons, gems and candi from my stash.

Next up is Incy Wincy

Incy Wincy Designs

This week we were sponsored by Sassy Studios for our Lavendar and Lace challenge

For this card i have used this gorgeous girl with a cupcake. I coloured her with Promarkers and added a touch of Prismas for shading (i love these prismas!!)  The cream card is Bazzill embossed cardstock.  Lace was from a selection i brought on ebay.  The paper was in a selction of 12 x 12 i had, i dont think it was actually part of the papermania collection, i think i may have just stored it with them.  The flowers are from my candy win, previously mentioned.  The leaves are punched from an X - Cut, although you can't ssee it here, it is actually embossed, it is one of my best buys lately and it was only £4.99!! Bargain!  The candi was in my stash and is from CraftWork Cards.  The sentiment is a LOTV stamp, i haven't filled it in yet as i don't know who this card will be for.

The Crazy Challenge

Before i show you my card i have some news, a few of the team for various reasons have decide to step down from the team, in particular Ruth our DT Co-Ordinator.  I have now taken over this role!  I am so excited about this. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Ruth and all the ladies of the design team, past and present.  They all do truly amazing work

Right on to our challenge,  this week we are sponsored by Sassy Studios for our challenge A Recipe - 1, 2, 3, this can be 1of anything, 2 of something else and 3 of another. 

I decided to use 1 Ribbon, which was from Crafy Ribbons, 2 papers, the pink is from First Edition and the blue was from a pad i got from a magazine. And last but not least 3 punched flowers.  The image is coloured with Promarkers. Butterflies are Martha Stewart punched and the heart was sent to me with the sentiment, which is fabric, in a swap.

If you are still reading, thank you soooooo much.
