Meljens Pastel Challange

Good Morning

Today I would like to share my latest card that I made.  This card was made with a digi image from Meljens designs, you can find it at the Meljens Shop, the image is Fancy Butterfly.

I used this image and coloured it with my copics in all the pastel colours that I had.  I was very happy to find the perfect paper to compliment the image and colouring in my stash.

A close up of the image.

The swirly paper was made with my Cuttlebug embossing folder.  I then added some coloured "stones" (sorry I am not sure what they are called - so if you leave a comment and know what they are called, I will really appreciate it).

I will be entering this card for the latest Meljens Challange - Pastels. It is the first time that I will be entering one of their challenges.  This is also the first time (I think) that I have posted a card with a digi image.  I love the fact that digi images are immediately available after you have purchased them as the postage is sometimes very expensive and not to reliable.  But nothing beats the feeling of holding an actual stamp in your hands.

Now enough of my blabbering, I hope that you will all have an awesome day and that you will have plenty of time to craft to your hearts content.

Ribbon Tilda

Good Morning

I hope that all of you lovely people are doing well and that you have all had an awesome weekend.  I think that I have been able to enjoy the weather more than most of the overseas blog visitors, here in South Africa we had some lovely rain over the weekend, but there was enough sun shine to make it a very enjoyable weekend.  However, the cold weather makes for a good reason to stay indoors and just spend the time crafting.

But now enough about the weather.  Today I would like to share my newest Tilda card with you.  I wanted to colour her dress in a different colour than what I usually do and then I found this lovely piece of black handmade paper in my stash.  I love the way it all came together.

My Tilda with her "blackish" dress.

Sorry about this photo, it is one of those that turned by itself and there is no reason to explain why and neither do I know how to fix it, but it does not matter as the focus of this photo is the lovely purple flowers.

This card will go into my emergency box, for those times when a girl needs a card but do not have the time to make one.  I am not sure if you have noticed but I rarely put a text on the card, as I prefer to add the text, when I know what the occasion is.

Thank you for visiting my blog, please leave me a comment as I love to hear what you have to say.  I will also love it if you would become a follower of my blog.

Have a great day.
