Count Dracular FROM Sassy Cheryl

This gorgeous little Dracular is far to cute to be spooky!
I love Sassy cheryls digi's, they are such a joy to colour and our challenge at creative inspirations
this week is to use Orange, Purple and black so this little Count was a must for me.
I used tiny hearts from memory box but couldn't find a die for little tiny bats so I just drew them myself on black card and cut them with scissors, I was pleased with the result.
I used some cheesecloth and coloured it black using a sharpie pen.
oh I do love this digi
 We would love to see your black, orange and purple creations over at creative inspirations and of course we have a prize up for grabs, this week is a generous £10 gift voucher for Craftie-Charlie store. hmm what would you treat yourself to with that?
It would be great if you could leave me a comment to let me know you stopped by.
thanks guys,

Spotlight card

Hi all,
Its challenge time again at Creative Inspirations and our clever design team member Sarah has chosen our theme this week and I love it!
the theme is 'In the Spotlight'.
I had to admit I hadn't seen a spotlight card before so Sarah showed me one she had made and I couldn't wait to get started.
Here is my card.....
I've used a Bugaboo mouse image to spotlight, how cute is he.
I coloured the spotlight circle with copics. I'm a colouring addict so I found it difficult to stop there but I love this idea and will be using it again.
I've used a Retro flower punch to make the flowers and a tattered lace die to make the little banner.
I hope you will be inspired enough to make a spotlight card and join us this week.
check out the other DT members for more inspiration.

Jingle all the Way

wow the weeks are flying by and its challenge time again already at Creative inspirations.
this week we have an optional sketch for you and our sponsor is
I hope you will come and join us again. we are seeing some lovely creations every week.
Here is my card...
I love this digi, he's so cute.
I had a little trouble colouring him, my E34 is almost dead! I've ordered a refill from Artifolk and to get free postage I had to add a few Sketch markers. oops!
a can never have too many copics tho...right?
I mad the baubles using various punches and spellbinders circles.
the punches were a corner MS punch with a loopy design so that was perfect to snip at and a Bunch punch Pear was snipped to make the top of the bauble.
so Christmas is coming and that means dark evening and maybe even dark days so I really do need to get to work on a light box to improve my photography skills, its been on my 'to-do' list for far too long!
hopefully my next photo will look amazing!
over you now crafters....
lets see what you make this week. we love visiting your blogs and seeing your creations so please join us.

Good luck to all the new ladies.

TeddyBo gave all us losers a gift and he is adorable!
I've made two cards with him already....

I added stickles and gems.
And this is my second card.

Hello teddy and Lace

its time for another challenge at Creative Inspirations and our theme is to simply ad some lace.
our sponsor this week is
Live & Love Crafts and they have offered a generous voucher for this weeks winner
that's gotta tempt you, right?
Here is my card.....
I love this colour combo. Red with Kraft card, it just works!
I'll be using this combo for my Christmas cards this year.
But today I decide to make this cute little card with a simple Hello die cut sentiment from Paper Smooches.
the corner of my card is removable and slides over the corner of my book to mark the page I'm on.
this style card would make lovely gifts.
I'll do a tutorial for the corner bookmark if there is any interest.
Over to you again now, please grab your lace and show us what you make over at Creative inspirations.
good luck and don't forgot that £10 voucher!
