Creative Card Crew #41 - Baby girl or lots of pink!

Welcome to another challenge over at Creative Card Crew! We have a somewhat sentimental theme this fortnight, in honour of the arrival of Mari's beautiful little grand-daughter, so we want to see a card for a baby girl, or a card featuring lots of pink! We are very lucky to be sponsored by the ever-brilliant Scrapping Center, who have a $15 gift voucher up for grabs.

Here is my project for the challenge (Jenn, no peeking!!! Lol)

My card (or cards) this fortnight sort of incorporates both themes, as I gave birth to a beautiful little girl just over three months ago. We were very blessed to be spoilt with so many well-wishes from family and friends, including one of my Creative Card Crew teamies, Jenn, who spoiled me with this beautiful card, from across the pond :)

So of course, I HAD to create some thank-you cards, to show our appreciation. I would have loved to do Copic thank-you cards, but with around 20 to do, while juggling three small children, it just wasn't going to happen!

I have used a variety of pink coloured DSP, so that the cards were "same same, but different". The heart stamp is from Stampin' Up! (You Are Loved), and the sentiment is also Stampin' Up! (Teeny Tiny Sentiments - my go-to for most cards!). The cardstock and ink are Stampin' Up! Raspberry Ripple, from last year's In Colour release. I have finished off with a variety of pink and/or florally washi tape.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and we look forward to checking out your creations!

On your graduation

A non-DT card, a rare occurrence these days ;)

This card is for my sister, who has just completed her Certificate III in Visual Art Design. I was lucky enough to check out her exhibition, and was blown away by her artwork. She had used melted crayons, canvas and paint to create an abstract series entitled "The Seven Deadly Sins". It was really beautiful. I have used this gorgeous Saturated Canary image, as it was the most artsy one I had.

She is so much fun to colour! I was a little intimidated at first, due to the multiple layers of clothing, but I just can't wait to colour her up again, as I have so many more ideas!

The sketch is from Sketch Saturday.

Here are the links to the challenges I am entering:

Saturated Canary - Challenge 47: Celebration
Sketch Saturday - Week 266 (my second entry)

Thanks for stopping by, hopefully I will have a few more projects to post soon!

Creative Card Crew #40 - The Great Outdoors

Welcome to another fabby challenge over at Creative Card Crew this fortnight! We are after some outdoorsy inspiration, so would like to see you make an outdoors-themed project.

Our sponsor for the challenge is Crafty Sentiments Designs who have 3 digi images up for grabs!

Here is my project for the challenge. This little dude was such a pleasure to colour, and I imagine he is going to become a firm favourite amongst my collection :)

I have used Kaisercraft Hunt & Gather papers for the card, finished off with some washi tape and a clip.

We look forward to seeing your outdoorsy creations!

I would like to enter my card in the following challenges:
