ABSC004 - Annabelle Sketch 4 & a Prize!

Morning to you on this Monday morning! Sorry I am a bit late in posting my Annabelle Sketch for this week, it was a very busy weekend! Only 1 week left of school before the boys go on holiday, so I am over the moon about that! Wow, it was hot yesterday 37 Degrees Celsius, happily it is a bit cooler today. Me, I battle with the heat!

Anyway, Andrea gave us another lovely sketch to work with this week. Here it is:

And here is my card:

I decided to use all the lovely little elements that are part of the "I can fly" set. I must say that this is definitely one of my fav sets, there is so much that you can do with it!

And there is another bonus to this weeks sketch. If you take part in the challenge you stand a chance of winning a $20 certificate to spend on any Annabelle products. Wonderful!! So we really would be chuffed if you took part! Just click on the Bling Challenge Blinkie in my sidebar to link your card for the week. Remember, you don't have to use Annabelle stamps on your card, just some Bling!!

Hope you have a great week!

ABSC003 - Another Annabelle Sketch

Wow, I have had an early start to my day today!! Got out of bed at 4:00am, made myself a cup of tea, and am now updating my blog. I am terrible, when I wake up an hour or so before the time that I am due to wake up, I just can't go back to sleep!! I do love this quiet alone time though!

So moving right along (before one of my kids wake up too), we are on to our 3rd Sketch over at Annabelle Stamps. We would really love for you to take part this week. It is a lovely sketch to follow, and remember, all you need to do to take part is add some Bling!!

Here is the sketch Andrea gave us to work with:

And here is my card and closeup photo. I am really in need of a new camera. I just can't seem to take a really good photo of my cards lately!

We would really love for you to take part. Just click on the Annabelle Bling Challenge blinkie in my sidebar and it will take you right to the place you need to be! Hope you all have a fab weekend. x

Annabelle Challenge 2 - BSC002

We are onto our 2nd challenge over at Annabelle Stamps Bling Challenge, and this week's sketch was quite an unusual one!

I struggled initially, but once I got going it was a fun one to work with, and it really made me think outside my box!

I noticed that quite a few of the other DT members used a stamp from the new Christmas set, unfortunately mine hasn't arrived yet, so I used an Annabelle stamp that I already have.

Here is the sketch:

And here is my card:

I used the Elephant Valentine Set. I recently also created another card using another ellie from the same set.

We would love for you to take part in our challenges. Remember, you can use any stamp you own, your card must just have some bling on it!! Click on the link in my sidebar to go and see what the other DT members have done.

Hope you all have a fantastic week. Caide only has 1 week of exams left. Yahooo!

Today I waned to share a card I made for Annabelle's first Bling Sketch Challenge. Andrea has created a new site where we can showcase our Annabelle cards, and it is lovely!! The great part about this challenge though, is that you don't need to use Annabelle Stamps, it's all about the Bling!!

Here is the sketch I based my card on:

And here is my card and closeup photo. I used the set which is called "I can fly". This is another lovely set, this little girl is SO cute, and it includes the cute butterfly stamps and some lovely sentiments!

Andrea is also releasing some new Sprinkles sets, and I am telling you, you have gotta get some of these! They are absolutely perfect for finishing off a card!

And just because I have been so slack, I thought I must share a card today! This is a card I created using one of (the many!) images Meahni so kindly stamped for me. She is one of the Bella Gals, and these are the first Bella images I have gotten my hands on, and they are just so cute! Thanks Meahni!! This card also happens to qualify for the challenge over at Cute Card Thursday, fancy that!
