DT Card for the Squirrel and the Fox # 74: Inspired by a Song or Movie


Hi all, hope you had a great weekend.. Today over at the Squirrel and the Fox a new challenge starts and our them is:
Inspired by a Song or Movie...
Well my inspiration came when I saw this image which is from our Sponsor Kenny K.
I so reminded me of Tammy the girl that lived on a houseboat....
the actual Movie title is Tammy and the Bachelor, and they also made a series of it. And the theme song is just playing in my head right now...I guess I am showing my age, but I remember watching the re runs of the series over and over when I was a young girl, they might have even been in black and white, oh dear..

I always use Pro Markers for my colouring, the papers and everything else is from my stash, the leaves are from a MS punch...

DT Card for Brown Sugar # 104 : For the boys

Hi everyone, it's Brown Sugar time again, and this gorgeous image is from Dr Digi and is the pre coloured version, and I would have to say, that this is my favorite image from them, hands down....
I added some hessian as a bit of interest and a vintage postcard, thought it matched it well....
Was going to add a fishing hook, but had none left ( no clean ones anyway)....
I always relate fishing to a Summer activity and summer fun, don't you?
Hope you like it, blessings Hilde

DT Creation Crafting with Dragonflies # 31 : Bag and Tag



Hi guys, hope you had a great week so far. Well it's Crafting with Dragonflies time again and this fortnight we are wanting you to make your own bag and add a tag....So not just a matter of decorating a bag, no......make one...
I had  a little Youtube search and came up with a bunch of great ideas and I settled on this one...here is the link to the tutorial which I liberally interpreted.....Origami fold bag with gusset

I used a piece of 12 x 12 inch piece of scrap booking paper from my stash and it was fairly thin, so not the real good solid pieces, and no need to waste double sided pages either....I also added a cute little heart charm to the handle which I made out of pinks satin cord and just tied knots in the right parts...

The gorgeous image is from our sponsor Sammi Stamps, it's just so gorgeous...I always use Pro Markers for my colouring,

Go and check out the wonderful creations from our Dragonflies over at the main blog, 
why not give it a go...?
Blessings Hilde

DT Card for Unstampables - I could have danced all night - add ribbon



 Our Sponsor is : Flourish with a bling


Hi everyone, well I hope you all had a wonderful week, today I am showing you my second project for UnstampaBelles, and it's all about dancing...I found the music and the image on Pinterest and thought it was a great image to go with the music sheet. I had the butterfly, also from the internet, and I added the bow on top of the centre to make it 3d, doesn't really show well on the photo, but you get the idea.
Bit of bling and glitz can't hurt either, lol.
