Time for another Trio

Happy Friday

It has been a busy week here in the kitten sanctuary, one little one about 8 weeks old was found in the road, 3 more came in from a local Army base as the troops are being posted abroad and that is only a few of the many kittens needing love, affection and forever homes.

So now onto this weeks challenges, firstly Crafters Cafe have a new challenge this week, the theme is: 

Our lovely sponsor this week is 

I adoreHeather Valentine's images, and I am very fond of her Flower Pot Pretties, the image I have used is called "Cherri  Flower Pot Pretties" 

I have used Copic markers to colour the image, and the embossing folder is by Crafters Companion and is called Falling Leaves. I have used Spellbinders Cherry Blossoms and Labels Twenty Nine.

My next card is for the new challenge at DS4J Challenge 73 Make your own Embellishment, hosted by my lovely friend Ursula

My card uses the image "Elenor's Door"

Again coloured with Copic markers and two embossing folders, the first one is by Crafters Companion and is called Let it Snow, the second is by Spellbinders and is called Bricks and Bark, the holly and boarder are both Hobby Craft punches. My homemade embellishment is something that I took from a class with Christine Emberson a while ago and is made using UTEE in the melt pot and poring over an embossed metal piece cut with Spellbinders Media-Mixage products into a bezel , when set it has been removed from the bezel.

Last but by no means least is the new challenge at Creative moments, this time the challenge is Sea/Seashore/Anything Goes, and our sponsor this time is

My card uses the image Seahorse

I have used Spellbinders Sea Beauty embossing folder and the bubbles are by Memory Box - Tiny Bubbles, the image was coloured with Copic markers and the background was created with Pan Pastels 

I do hope you will rise to some if not all of these challenges, and I look forward to seeing your entries

Thank you for stopping by
