I found this challenge very difficult to think of card at first but then I thought of a scrapbook page. My daughter Angela and her daughter Brianna came down to Sydney last weekend and stayed an Lynda's so I rang Lynda and asked her to please take photos of Brianna playing with her legos and she also found an old photo of her daughter Sian when she was nearly 8 playing with her Barbies (she is now 14).
I made the background paper from a picture on the internet. Layered the build picture also from the internet. Added the photos and journalling.
Everyone else must be having problems with this challenge as there are no entries yet on the side bar, so come on over and join in the challenge, you still have a couple days to join in

I was making a Christmas Card for Merry Monday Christmas card challenge and I printed out this stamp but it was a bit too small for the card so I decided to use it for an ATC.
Green card embossed with Cuttlebug "Holly with Berries", washi tape, Merry Christmas sticker and for the sparkle I have added rhinestones. They are sparkly but it doesn't show up in the scan.
The Stamp is a digi stamp "Holly Victorian Christmas" by Heather Valentin from Lacey Sunshine stamps who is the official and only authorized shop to sell Heather Valentin stamps. I am hoping to get my Christmas cards and ATCs done a bit earlier this year instead of having to rush at the last minute which is usually the case.
This was the sketch to follow to make a Christmas card
And this is the card I made this afternoon.
I embossed green card with Cuttlebug "Holly with Berries" and added ribbon from my stash and washi tape. Printed Heather Valentin's digi stamp "Holly Victorian Christmas" from Lacey Sunshine stamps the official and only authorised shop to sell Heather Valentin stamps. Coloured the stamp with Copic marker (face), Distress Markers and Tria Markers. Cut out and attached to green card and added Merry Christmas sticker. You can't see properly in the scan but the berries on the embossing have been coloured red with a sparkly gel pen.
I have wanted to join this challenge for a few weeks but until now always just missed the deadline. It will be good to get some Christmas cards made during the year instead of having to rush at the last minute.
I have just found another Christmas card challenge so I would like to enter this card into
Lacy Sunshine challenge No 5 is anything goes and Heather gave us a lovely free image to use for this challenge: "Sunny" from Heather's new range of flower pot pretties. http://lacysunshinechallengeblog.blogspot.co.uk/
This is the card I made today.
I have stamped "Sunny" in the middle and "Petunia on the left" and "Violet on the right" all from Heather's new range of flower pot pretties. Coloured them with markers. Sun and grass stamps are from Posh Impressions "Stamp a Scene". "Wishing you Happiness" is from a Stampin Up set. I have added lace border fence.
As you will see on my left side bar Lacy Shine is the official and only authorized shop to sell Heather Valentin stamps. Any one else selling them is doing it illegally.

Stamped mauve card with stamps from Stampin Up "Simply Said" stamp set. Coloured flowers with gel pens. Added a dragonfly brad, attached all to purple card and then to main card.

Come over and join in the party.
Kris has given us another free image for challenge number 4. I have been playing along since number one so received the whole set of cars. Anyone starting now can download the free car image and if you play now you will also receive free images for future challenges. http://imaginethatdigistamp.blogspot.com.au/
I also bought the digi papers from her to use with the cars.
I printed out one of the cars and the sentiment and coloured the car with distress markers, and the yellow with another marker. My colouring is not the best as my eyes are blurry.
This will be a good card for boys. I usually have problems making male cards but this has made it easier.
I have printed out Delicious Doodles digi stamps "Butterfly border" and "Fairy Fae" and coloured with Copic, distress and Tria Markers. Printed out a second copy of butterfly border and coloured and cut out some of the butterflies and flowers and layered them over the top of the first image then attached all to
pink card which I first embossed with Crafts-Too butterflies.
I usually make a separate card for each challenge but I am running behind this week. The tablets I am on for Fybromyalgia and arthritis are making me fuzzy headed so it takes longer to get going in the mornings and it takes longer to make my cards.
This is the sketch and the extra challenge is use 3 or more flowers
and this is my card
I have embossed green card with Cuttlebug daisies. Added striped paper from my stash. I have printed Lacey Sunshine digital stamp "Maddie and Clover Groovy Hippy Music" and coloured with markers. I have then punched EK Success medium and small flowers. I have left the medium flowers white and coloured the small flowers with markers.
Come over to Feeling Sketchy later today and join in the challenge which runs for one week.
