I've used a new image, "With All My Heart" -isn't he just about the sweetest mouse you've ever seen?! Cute Card Thursday wants to see something new and Pile It On want to see Animals, so I'm entering there. I merged the image with digital paper from Nitwits Valentine Too collection (which looks like polka dots but is in fact tiny hearts) which saved me the trouble of fussy cutting the image, and coloured it with Copics and Prismacolor pencils.The pink background paper is more of the Nitwits papers as is the dark pink (which has "Love" written on it) the pink with random hearts is from my stash and the stripy paper is from DCWV's All Glittered Up collection (it's very glittery IRL) My Mums Craft Shop and Craft Your Passion have Spots or Stripes as their theme, so I'm entering there.
I've used this sketch from Sketch and Stash, it's a great sketch as it lets all the layers show and has enough elements to make it interesting, Top Tip Tuesday want us to use our Favourite sketch so I'm entering there too.The little flowers are a Carl punch, they're glittery too, and the leaves are a Joy die I just treated myself too, the pearls are from my stash. Addicted to Stamps has a flowers challenge so I'm in. The pearl hearts were paler, I coloured them with Copics. The twine (I think it's paper... it matches the Kraft brilliantly) makes great bows, Simon Says Challenge has Anything Goes with Twine so I'm entering there too.
I used the same layout for the inside, without popping up the layers, the sentiment was printed on the computer.
Aud Sentiments, Cuttlebug Mania, Gem of a Challenge, Allsorts Challenges, Little Miss Muffet, Sweet Stampin' and Crafty Calendar all have Love/Valentine's challenges so I'm entering them all and Paper Creator Crafts and Through the Craftroom Door have Anything Goes challenges so I'm entering them too.
Well that's it for today's card, I hope to get some crafting/blogging done over the rest of the weekend; we've got Monday off too but are starting to get things ready for the new pool so I can see that disappearing; we've got the licence (madness having to get a new licence when we had one for the pool we removed before, but new one we had to get) and we've had some of the palms cut down to make excavation a bit easier, which is kind of sad as I liked my palms - hubby thought they'd got too tall anyway so he's happy.
I hope you can pop over to Di's Digis Challenge blog and check out the rest of the team's work, it's awesome:-) We've got Marker Pop sponsoring this time around with a great prize, and don't forget that as always, if you use one of Di's great images you go in an additional draw.
Until next time, Happy Crafting, Donna
