Merry Christmas ~DS181~

Hi there. I've been MIA a little lately. I guess it's just that time of the year. I didn't get to take part in last weeks sketch, and it's already next week, so here we go with DS181.


I hope you like my card. I used a PPINKYDOLLS digital image, and coloured her in with copic markers.
I switched my bow from the top to the base, as it worked better that way for me.

Here is Jen's fab sketch



I hope you have time to play along with us this week.
This sketch will run for the next two weeks over the Christmas holiday period.

For more inspiration, check out the fabulous work of my team mates below.

ADD SOME BLING


Hi there.

It's time for Challenge number 6 at PPINKYDOLLS

The theme is~  ADD SOME BLING , and I have really gone to town.



I have added bling to the border, the oval, card stock, swirls, and her wings and horn. She really does sparkle, but it is always hard to take good photos of bling I find.

I used UNICORN PPINKY, one of my favourite digi stamps from Chrishanthi. She is printed on Xpress blending card and coloured with copic markers.

Make sure you check out the PPINKY DOLLS CHALLENGE BLOG for lots of DT inspiration.

I would like to enter my card in the following challenges



This is my last challenge for PPINKYDOLLS. From now on I will be concentrating on new releases and previews for ppinkies, so no need to worry. I'll still be around with lots of pinky goodness,

Thanks for stopping by my blog.

A PPINKY CHRISTMAS TAG BOOK

I've been on a colouring frenzy of late, and found myself today with lots of super-cute ppinkydolls images coloured and ready to make into pretty things. 

Back on world card making day I found a tutorial on how to make a little flip mini book with tags on a blog by Tiets, and thought I would give it a go.

Here is the finished result, closed first of all......



Then open, so you can see the inside. You can just see the ribbons from the tags poking out the top of some of the pages.


I hope you lil my little project.

You can find all the stamps I've used in Chrishanthi's easy store HERE

Thanks for stopping by my little blog.

If you enjoyed your visit, I would love you to become a follower and say hi.

I plan to do a giveaway when I reach the magic 100.

Thanks again,

Hugs,
