One card for 3 challenges!

I've made this card to fill three challenges. I wanted to play with a Greetings Farm Stamp for Anyone for Anya and was lacking inspiration, and so I went in search of some Challenges. I found two more:

The Greetings Farm Farm Fresh Friday - Stitching 'faux or real' on two or more layers
Friday Sketchers - Fabulous sketch by Inge
Anyone for Anya - Anything Goes

I've used Amelia from the 'My Favourite Things' set from The Greetings Farm (Sentiment from same set) which I bought from Quixotic Paperie for my birthday with a gift voucher a lovely blog lady gave me. Coloured her with copics (listed below) and used some freebie papers that came with a magazine a wee while back - I believe they are My Minds Eye papers - 'Pretty Please' if I remember correctly - I lost the front cover.
Flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the tulle bow I made (I think the tulle I picked up from local haberdashery store). The stitching I have done using a hand held sewing machine - I'm not very good at it, thus the wonky lines haha!
Copic colours:
Skin: Eoo, E50, E51, R11 & R20
Hair: E31, E35, E37
Clothes/Bow/Stars/Hair accessories: R32, RV42, B00, BG01, G99, R29
Shadowing: W1, W3, W7, 0

Some great news - Wild Orchid Crafts are starting up a Challenge Blog for Embellies - How cool is that, Check out the blog here... 

To celebrate they are having an amazing candy
Ends July 11th in prep for the challenges going live on the 12th!

Thanks for stopping, please leave a comment so I can come visit you in return

Anyone for Anya meets Colour Create Challenge

I'm recovering well from my surgery last week. I've walked into town and back and even driven the car so I'm improving rather well, even if I do say so myself. 

I saw the Gp yesterday and it wasnt my regular one as she retired last week, but another partner in the practice. When I asked him for a sick note for two weeks he said it was more than reasonable and asked if I wanted more time off hehe. I think with everything I've been through, less time is good. I need to get back into the swing of things as soon as!

I've made a VERY QUICK card this evening. My mojo is somewhat lacking, so I apologise.

I'm entering this cutie into 

Anyone For Anya - Sketch which is fab! 
The girls are having a DT call so if you fancy it, get in touch with them!


Colour Create which is to use colours from this photo as inspiration
Drool, dribble, pant... feint!
 The added extra was to use something you could see in the photo so I went for some 'pins'. 
I also used the green of the back ground and the orange of his hair for the colour choice. 

A close up!

Stamp: The Greetings Farm Amelia and sentiment from Happy Days Collection (from Quixotic Paperie)
Medium: Copics and Memento Ink to stamp with
Papers/Card: Papermania Gem Collection (Very sparkly card stock, love it!)
Embellies: Ribbon from Quixotic Paperie, flowers - Wild Orchid Crafts, Pearl Pins from stash, Glammour Dust and Ranger Rock Candy for some glitz)

Copic Colours: 
Skin: E00, E50, E51, R11, R20
Clothes/Shoes/Bobbles: YR04, YR07, YG03, YG06 (stars Y08, Y17, circles on necklace V09)
Hair: E31, E35, E37, E47

Dont forget my Candy which can be found here 
Ends July 10th/11th when I remember to draw a random winner.

One Card THREE Challenges!

My mojo has up and gone recently and I've been blogging this morning and while sat at my desk I saw some new stash I bought for my birthday and a wee package I was given a little while ago and they were all screaming for me to play.

I'm entering this card into three challenges
Anyone For Anya ~ Fabulous Flowers
Basic Grey ~ Colour Combo (Brown, Cream and Turquoise)
Stamp With Fun ~ A Sketch

Its my first time playing with Basic Grey and also Anyone for Anya so I'm hoping they like my card.

Papers are Basic Grey Cappella which fits nicely with the Brown and Cream them and the dress and flowers on Miss Fleur here are bluey turqoise (Its as near as I could get with the old DI's). 
The Rose is from Wild Orchid Crafts and the Prima flowers are a mix of my own stash and those which I was given in a very nice package from a lovely lady recently (which also included the papers and the pearl brads).

I've added some Glitter to her flowers and also some Rock Candy by Ranger to the rose, but it doesnt show very well.

Just before I go - What do you think of my daughter??
Taken at the weekend at the local beer and food festival 

Too cute for words, right?...
Thanks for looking
