Beatle Mania

The challenge on Arty Girlz this week is "Era's". So using Katharina's FAB sketch from Papertake Weekly this week, I've chosen the swinging 60's. This is George imitating Sir Paul, fantastic isn't he, he's from the Rock n Roll download at Charmed Cards & Crafts. Oooo and I've been chosen as the featured customer over on Dottie's World too, so I'm well chuffed!

All Change

I was chuffed to bits to be asked if I would like to be a guest designer over on This Thursday its all about..... challenge blog. After a long deliberation (about 3 seconds) of course I agreed! I was sent a CD by the generous sponsor Little Lou's Craft Supplies and asked to design a project with the title 'All Change'. I wanted to do something a bit different and came up with the idea of a picture frame, with a picture printed in colour and black & white that 'changed' between the two depending which way you looked at it. It's quite difficult to photograph (and I'm rubbish at it anyway) but I hope you get the idea. If you have a go at the challenge this week you will get a chance to win the FAB prize pictured at the top of this post. Good luck and most of all enjoy the challenge!

Cool Dude

The challenge on Patertake Weekly this week is 'Teenage Kicks', make a card for a teenager. As soon as I read it I knew I wanted to use this cute sk8r boy stamp from Dimension Fourth. I have used Prisma pencils blended with Sansodor to colour him in and then used glossy accents over the top to finish him off.

I wanna be a rock star

Another FAB George, this time from the 'Rock n Roll' set of digital downloads available from Charmed Cards & Crafts. You have just got to go and have a look at this new set it's got loads of brilliant images on including Hippie's, Rockers, Bikers, Goths, Teddy Boys etc etc etc (can you tell I'm impressed). I have done Rocker George for the challenge over on Dottie's World Blog (my 1st challenge here, but certainly not my last) which this week is to use any of the Dottie or George Downloads, choose a letter of the alphabet and include as many things on the card beginning with that letter (there's a much better explanation on the blog!). I have chosen the letter G and have included: George, guitar, green, gold, glasses, glaze, greeting (I know it's a sentiment but that doesn't start with a G lol) and gorgeous papers!
