Anything Goes over at Aurora Wings Challenges


It's time for a new challenge over at Aurora Wings Challenges and this time it's an easy one for you.....


I've used the STUNNING Himalayan Blue Poppy Elf for my card. She really holds her own on a card so I've used limited embellishments to give her centre stage. The sentiment was made using an alphabet cuttlebug die.

Don't forget to check out the rest of the AMAZING DT inspiration on our BLOGWe also have a very active Facebook Fan Group with additional contests, challenges and inspiration.  We hope to see you there.

Copics Used - Skin (E11, E00, E000, R24, R20, R11) plus B39, B06, B04, B02, B00, 100, C8, C6, C4, C2, Y19, Y11, YR27, YG67, YG63, YG61

It's Cold Outside in La-La Land


This week in La-La Land we are feeling the cold - brrrrrrrr. It seems a little strange for us Aussies as we are starting to hit some high temperatures heading into Summer LOL. I decided to create a Christmas card as that can follow the theme as well as being the right time of year for me ;) I've added snow capped trees to the background as well as some festive gold sparkle. I love this little cutie in pink - I almost wish it WAS cold here so I could join her all snuggled up in La-La Land.

Aurora Wings Challenge - Heartfelt



This month over at Aurora Wings Challenges we are being.....


I have made a Thank You card using the gorgeous Aurora Wings Windswept image. I digitally paper pieced her kimono before adding some shading for definition. I then printed out the same pattern out on a  larger scale to use as my background. I love the way this connects the image to the rest of the card.

The sentiment is a cuttlebug die.

Halloween or Fall In La-La Land


This week in La-La Land we are celebrating Fall and/or Halloween. Since it's Spring here in Australia and my garden is coming to life I felt doing a Fall card wasn't quite right - besides - I have been wanting to colour up this cutie for a while ;) She's not too gruesome with the fun colours I ended up using...

Hidden Extra in La-La Land




OOPS - forgot I hadn't scheduled this - I just got home from a holiday overseas and have been suffering a bit from jet lag so apologies for the tardiness.

This week in La-La Land we are playing with "Hidden Extras". I decided to try my hand at a Peek-a-boo card using Norma's FABULOUS tutorial HERE. I'm really lucky to have the card used in this tutorial in my possession and it's just AMAZING IRL.

I digitally paper pieced the 2 Marci's kimonos before colouring the rest. I have done a tutorial on how to do this HERE.

I used my Cameo to create my Fall moon shaped card. The main piece is cut twice and then hinged on the back piece. I have also taken off a slice at the bottom of the card to make sure it stands up.
