Remember your Teens

I thought I would share this card I made for a work colleague's 19th birthday this week. It's a Stampin Chef image and I have coloured it using Specrum Noir pens. The 2 patterned papers have been embossed using an Embossalicious folder called Gun Metal.

I have kept the layout quite simple really and just added a single flower that matched the colour of her shirt really well.  

I would like to enter her in the following challenges

It's A Cracker

It's Sunday so it's time for a new Hobbycutz Challenge. This week is "anything but a card/household item". That gives you chance to try something different and play, so why don't you join in and see what you come up with!
Our Sponsor this week is Crafty Sentiments Design, the snowman image is from them, and Hobbycutz.

I am pleased so say I have finally got a set of pens of my own. Since I started colouring a couple of years ago I used to use my friends pens. But I have now decided which I like and am now the proud owner of a set of Spectrum Noir pens. I have coloured this image with them and I like them so much. I have just added a bit of glitter ribbon to my cracker and 2 Hobbycutz snowflakes, which I have covered in red glitter. I think Christmas is coming.

Welcome to this weeks card for The Hobbycutz Challenge, this weeks theme is Halloween. Our sponsor this week is Bearly Mine who have supplied the lovely papers I have used to make my card.

I decided to do a triple easel, I found this 12x12 of some really cute images from We r Memorykeepers and I like them so much I couldn't choose which one's to use. So I made a card so I could use a few of them. The shape has been cut using a Go Kreate die.

I put a glitter spider and a nasty black spider on for added effect.

Then some Hobbycutz pumpkins that I have coloured with distress inks. I am quite pleased with the overall effect.
