A BIT WILD AND WOOLLY

Hello Peeps,
Well - after saying that Spring had arrived last week, it has definitely changed up a bit since last night. ! We had a big thunderstorm and loads of rain and the wind today is definitely wild and woolly. My Dog took one look outside and refused to budge and all the cats are cozying around the house :-)

I am hiding downstairs in my room and making some cards for Challenges I spotted recently.
I snagged a couple of gorgeous download Freebies from FAR FAR HILLS, so I have been using those too :-)

My first card is using the latest image from GERDA STEINER for the Progressive Challenge. It is called  " Bee Strong ".
I coloured him up with Promarkers and then copied the image several times to make a matching backing paper :-) His wings were done with Angel Fibers but it doesn't show up well on photos. Looks really cool close up though :-D
I used my new Basic Shapes Stitched Cutting Frames from Marianne Designs to cut him out.




Challenges I am entering:

Naughty or Nice Challenge #37 - Feature a Creature


My second piece uses a real cute elephant from SASAYAKI GLITTER called " Birthday Elly ", and the new Freebie set from FAR FAR HILLS which is called " St Patrick's Day ".
I used all 10 of the designs and punched out quilt shaped pieces and stuck them to card. Then I hand drew some crazy stitching round it. The Elephant was 'paper pieced' with one of the designs and I then shaded and highlighted him using Promarkers.  I changed the flame on his candle for a Shamrock leaf.
The flowers are from my new Multi Flower Die set from MARIANNE DESIGNS.
