Its time for a new challenge over at the Crafty Bloggers Network Challenge blog and this month we are sponsored by the talented Rick St Denis who has a whole range of digital stamps to suit almost everyone.
Here is my DT card
Rick St Denis digi stamp: North Pole Coloured with Copics
Gold Mirror card
Well ok they are not roses, but they are red When I started to colour this Bugaboo image , I had them in yellow, then I remembered that for the new challenge over at ABC challenges, they should be red, so I ended up colouring over the top. Thank goodness for Copic pens! I used a mask from SplodgeAway to make the background.
The lovely Heather over at Lacy Sunshine stamps is very kindly sponsoring the Crafty Bloggers Network Challenge this month and the prize is a whopping $20 gift certificate!
Here is the my design team card:
The image I used is called Lizabeth- Wild Daisies Digi Set, the papers just cried out to be used with her. I coloured her with copic’s and cut her out with a Nellie Snellen die. The theme this month is Metal Magic, so I used some rainbow mirror card for my flourishes (well its kind of metal isnt it!)
I cannot believe that it is June 1st already, where has the time gone?? This time last year our lives changed forever with the loss of my Dad who left us far too early at the age of only 62. We still miss him, obviously, but if there is one thing I learned it is that life is too short and you only get one chance at it! With that in mind I was determined to try my hardest to get onto one or more design teams. Here I am now, a year later, on 2 challenge blog design teams and on the DT for a super company called Splodge Away that makes some wonderful products that are great fun to work with.
Around the same time, we started on the long road of trying to get a diagnosis for our son who we think has Asbergers (still on that long road but getting closer to an answer there). Whilst we don’t have a diagnosis as yet, or even bothered what the “label” is, we are finding it a lot easier to deal with his “quirks” and his special way of doing things. The same son has taken up playing the tin whistle and is loving it. Our younger Son has started with a local theater group and has just performed his first play, outside of school, in which he was a natural.
All in all I think we have had a year that Dad and Grandad would have been pleased with, I do believe he has been watching and is very proud of what we have all achieved.
I used one of my Gelli plate printed Backgrounds and an image from the Paper shelter called Spring Swing II

I have saved the best until last in my opinion, I really love how this jewelry set came out and plan to run a class on how to make it at Cullen Crafts.
Today I have an engagement card for the Friday Sketch Challenge, made with the S.W.A.L.K. digi stamps from Crafters Companion.

Hair colour on the lady is E011, E31 and E33, the man is E31, E33, and E35
