Good morning dear friends. I hope you are all surviving the dreadful weather we’re having at the moment. I hate the rain at the best of times but it’s starting to get on my nerves already lol! I know that lots of other parts of the country really need rain, but it is definitely one thing we don’t need in the South Wales valleys haha!
Over at charisma cardz challenge it’s time for a brand new challenge and for Team Gemma to share their creations. The theme has been chosen by the lovely Natalie and she would like to see your “blue, black and white” creations. I also used the gorgeous sketch from this week’s stamp with fun challenge (I am extremely late with my card – sorry!). Here is my card:
and here is the sketch:
I have used an image from Some Odd Girl called ‘geeky Mae’ and coloured her with promarkers and flex markers. The papers are from the docrafts forever friends ‘new arrival’ designstax and the black card is from eBay. The papers are a really soft pastel blue IRL but for some reason they are showing up as a blue-ish grey in the photos! I embossed the white card with an embossing folder and added some black gems but otherwise kept the layout really simple.
We have three sponsors this week, firstly we have DigiStamp Boutique who are offering one lucky winner 6 digi images of their choice. Our second sponsor is Crafty Emma’s store and one lucky winner will receive a £10.00 voucher to spend in her online store and our third sponsor is the stamping boutique who are offering 5 digis of the winner’s choice. Certainly lots of fab reasons to join in the fun this week.
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
Stampin’ sisters in Christ challenge – soft pastels
Stamptacular challenge – loaded with layers
Creative card crew challenge – use ribbon
Digital Tuesday challenge – winter blues (I used blue papers/promarkers)
Flourishes timeless Tuesday challenge – BINGO (blue, ribbon and bling)
Scrap creations challenge – it’s a girl thing
Simon says stamp challenge – anything goes
Really reasonable ribbon challenge – black, white + 1 accent colour (+ ribbon)

I would like to welcome my newest follower Sharon (aka shazronnie – fab name by the way!) *waves hello* – thanks for joining my happy band of followers and I hope you will visit me often. I hope you have a wonderful Thursday and don;t get caught in too many rain showers! Thanks so much for stopping by today.
