Santa's on his way

Hi, my card is for two challenges. I have followed Sketch 24 over at Sketch and Stash, the old is the embellies on the side, they were brads from a selection box I got last year, and the strings of gold pearls are the new. The other challenge is The Pink Elephant which is 'Colour me Wonderful' translated as anything coloured with your favourite medium. My image is from the Daisy and Dandelion Christmas Selection and I have coloured using my Copics just got these a couple of months ago and am loving them. I did make Santa's sack a bit too dark, so scibbled randomly over it with the blending pen to try and give it a used look, not sure if it shows up very well though. Finished it off with a peel off greeting.
The backing paper is Funky Fairys, everything else came from my craft box. Many thanks for visiting my wee space on the web, especially as I am not posting as often as I should.

Best Friends

Hi, today's card is for The Pink Elephant Challenge - Plaid, No Ribbon and any number of Brads.
The image is Messy Rabbit from Joanna Sheen coloured with my Lyras and mounted onto nesties. The snowflakes are brads and I have used brads to attach the sentiment which is computer generated and stuck onto a nestie tag. The bp is from Daisy and Dandelion's Christmas pad. The cardstock is Coredinations and I used a Martha Stewart punch.
Thank you very much for visiting my blog,. Beryl x

Carol Singing

Today's card is for two challenges. I have followed Friday Sketchers #79 and used a digi stamp and spray glitter for the current DU2DS challenge which is for Glitter. The image is Dottie & George carol singing from Charmed Cards and Crafts, coloured with my Copics. The offset card has been swirled with blue and white pearlescent glue, cuttlebugged with the snow flake folder and then sprayed with Crafter's Companion Silver Glitter Spray, the snowflake is just punched from some scrap card and then sprayed with the glitter as well, unfortunately the glitter doesn't show up very well. The sentiment is computer generated, dusted with Cosmic Shimmer and cut out with a Nestie tag. The bp is from Fred She Said, I used the Martha Stewart snowflake punch for the centre strip, and everything else came from my stash.
Thank you for visiting and if you would like to leave a comment, please do, as they really make my day.

PS. I forgot to mention my namesake Beryl, as it was on her site that I found out about the pearlescent glue. I had not heard of it before. So, of course seeing the wonderful effect I just had to go buy some. I'll send you the bill later Beryl rfol :) Do pay her a visit as she does some amazing work

I've Won

Hi, I have just discovered that I won CrafyAnn's Challenge Blog's very first challenge. If you haven't seen this challenge blog, to take a look at Ann and her DT's cards, they are spectacular. The 2nd challenge started yesterday and it runs for two weeks, so please try and enter, the more the merrier

I am thrilled to bits to be the winner of Ann's first challenge, especially as she was so helpful to me when I first started my blog. She also has a web site where she sells some of her amazing digi stamps and background papers.

Of course I must also say a big thank you to the Random Number Generator Thingy for picking my number lol

Not been around much this week as having a few back probs again, but it is slowly beginning to improve so hope to be around later this week. Thanks for visiting

All that glitters

Good Afternoon, I have managed to get one card to fill three challenges again. Papertake Weekly - Digi Sparkle; Cute Card Thursay - Glitter Me Silly and finally I have followed the sketch for DU2DS.

The image is a download from Charmed Cards & Crafts and I have cheated by using a ready coloured one. However, I am dead pleased with myself as, after playing around for a few days, I have discovered how to cut out an image with my Craft Robo. My cutting is dreadful. Think I should have used a narrower border, but I'll know for next time. I have mounted the image onto silver glitter paper and added some Stickles on the dress and cape. The bp is from Funky Fairys, everything else, card squares, glittery flowers and gems are all from my stash.

Thank you so much for dropping by and for leaving such wonderful comments. Beryl x

Just Made It

I returned home from a trip to visit family a week ago today, and this is the first card I have managed to make. It is for three challenges, Sketch Saturday, Rainbow Lady and Crafty Ann's Challenge Blog.

First of all I have just made Rainbow Lady's challenge by the skin of my teeth as it ends tonight, her challenge being for an Anniversary Card. Crafty Ann is hosting a brand new challenge and her challenge is for a celebration card. Do take a look at Crafty Anns Website she is selling some fabulous digi stamps and papers, also pop by her challenge blog too, her own card for this challenge is great and so the the cards of her design team, and finally I have followed Sketch76 for Sketch Saturday. Again apologies for the pic, I tried to use the camera and I got too much shine from the glitter card so used my phone, which doesn't work very well.

The image is from Crafter's Companion Everyday CD, the bp is Funky Fairys. The glitter card, black card, silver card, hearts and ribbon all came from my stash and the sentiment is computer generated.

Thank you for visiting and if you wish to leave a comment please do, I really appreciate every one.
