My first is a card that I made with one of my new stamps. This stamp is called Angelica's Bunny Hugs.
I have coloured her with promarkers and a little bit of clear star pen. I then layered her onto some blue bazill cs. The papers are from DCWV pad and it is called Summer stack. I have stitched around the papers with pink thread in a zigzag stitch. The blooms, pearls, ribbon and charm are all from my stash.
My second project is one I made a while back but I was really pleased how it turned out as acetate is quite tricky to use sometimes.
It's a little treat box. You can see what is in the box as the middle is acetate. I used LiLi's chicks for this one. Again she has been coloured with promarkers and I have cut her out leaving a little border. All the papers and card are from Stampin Up.
So there are my two projects. Good luck to all who have entered. x
Let's Get Fruity
Here is my card
I have used an image by our prize sponsor today,Digital Delights. The image is called "Birthday Ridley". I've coloured it in with promarkers and a little sakura glaze and clear star pens. The papers are all from a DCWV Summer pad. I cut out the fruit embellies from one of the papers and added a brad to the middles. The papers have been layered onto an orange bazill cs.
So one lucky winner will receive a $10 gift certificate to spend at the Digital Delights online shop.
All details are here on the CCT blog.

I have used one of my new Inky Impression stamps and she is called LiLi's Secret.I have stamped her onto a nestie circle and coloured her with promarkers. I also used a red sakura pen to colour in her tiny nails and ear rings. I then sponge inked around the circle with a brown distress ink. I then layered the circle onto a scalloped circle made with blue bazill and my cricut. The papers are from a pad by Papermania. I have stitched around the papers with a pink thread and a zigzag stitch. The sentiment is also from Inky Impressions and you can find it here.The flower, charm, ribbon and brads are all from my stash.

Thank you miss

The papers are from a pad by GCD and are called "Schooled". The images are from Magnolia and I have coloured them with promarkers. I have used the Cricut to make the ABC.

Have a great weekend!!!
Here is the sketch.
And here is my take on the sketch
I have used Angelica's heart socks from Inky Impressions for the this one.She has been coloured with promarkers and cut out and adhered with 3D pads. I turned the sketch 90 degrees so I could fit the image in comfortably. All the papers are from SU and are called Fall Flowers and they have been layered onto a turquoise Bazill bling cardstock. The flowers, spacers and charms are all from my stash.
I have used two brand new Alota bug stamps for my ATC. The stamp soldier bug is part of a bigger stamp with other military bugs on it and you can see it here. The soldier bug is also part of a bigger stamp and that is here. I have coloured them with promarkers and then cut them out. The papers are from a DCWV pad called Summer, the pad has several 4th July papers in it. I then inked around the edges of the ATC with a navy ink.
You can see all the other DT's great ATCs on the blog here.

I have layered up the papers and distressed them all with a nail file.
The papers, flowers and ribbon are all from this month's Sarah's cardmaking kit. I have used a Leanne Ellis stamp from Funky Kits. I've paper pieced her dress and heart with the same papers and coloured the rest with promarkers. I cut out the aperture for the sentiment with a SU word window punch and the sentiment is also from SU. It is from the Warm Words set.
