Something to say

 This weeks theme at creative knockouts is Something to say with an image from patties creation and I chose this image cheers to you ladies

I put the sentiment under the image to make it one piece coloured it with copics I adhered the spotty backing paper to a brown card then the image with purple I also cut a couple of flourishes to put one on top one on the bottom On the inside of the card I put a strip of two lines of the same backing paper and the sentiment inside read ....BUT you are totally worth it

 The theme this week at creative knockouts is summer fun   with a image from  the paper shelter and I got to pick the image for us all to use so this is what I chose hammock days

I typed the sentiment using a yessy font and inserted the image and printed it off. I coloured the image with copics, positioned the trees to go to the end of the ropes,  had to bend them a bit but it worked out fine  a little bit of weight makes a sag I then made a mask for the tree trunks then stamped the grass and the flowers, I adhered it to green card  then onto a white base card. I then die cut the little butterflies and stuck them on

This weeks challenge at creative knockouts for the kids with this image  https://Daisys Dream Bubble  I chose from Patties Creations

I like this image and it is one I think looks better with out a whole lot of embellishments on it so I made it a centre stepper card, so the image stood out more I downloaded the bubble backing paper from the net and adhered it to all panels I coloured the image with copics then distress inked the edges with broken china  I adhered the image to the centre panel with double sided foam tape The sentiment I did on the computer with the "Love Letters" font one I downloaded from a free font site the white bits on the sentiments are hearts I will use this Image a lot I think

Just for you

This weeks challenge at creative knockouts is anything goes with a image from Mirtillamente I chose this one called just for you 

I have to say that the images on the site are not normally what I would use but I was one of the ones to chose a image, I picked this one girl also has long hair  and as I was fussy cutting her I decided to chop her hair as well, I still struggle a bit with colouring hair. I started off with a pink card and made half a sun burst I then used mustard seed distress ink and went around all the sides and lightly over the backing paper originally the card with the backing paper was on the right  hand side  but I liked it more on the left, thankfully I had forgotten about the sentiment, that was a bit of a mission getting that in the right place. I then put more distress ink around the card and the plain card so now it looks slightly orange I adhered a light pink ribbon down the middle although it looks sparkly in the photo. coloured the image with copics fussy cut her and adhered to card, found the "hugs and kisses" die cut in my stash Rather like the image and I will use it again I can see her with a bottle of wine in her hand

This weeks challenge at Creative knockouts is this lovely image from from SheepSki Designs called serenity and our theme is flower power

I love doing cards with flowers and it has been a while since I have done one like this 
Purple was my choice of colour with this one I used a plain backing paper and a floral one I distressed the papers and curled the floral ones to reveal the image Printed the image out and used a doily die to cut it coloured it with copics put her into place then layered the the BP on The large flower I made with a Die (who from I do not have a clue) the other little flowers are from my stash cut out the leaves coloured them with copics as I didn't have the right green card added the wee lady bird

This weeks challenge at Creative knockouts is a anything goes with a image from klm designs mailbox greetings

I like to do black and white cards they can be plain or fancy and this one is in between. this one has been done in a black and white sandwich, it has a splash of colour with the tulips. I come from Dutch parents and my mum always had red tulips in her garden. I then added a bow just to finish it off
