FSS Spotlight, WOJ GDT Call and a challenge!

It's time for another spotlight over on the FSS blog and this week it's my turn!
I got some cute little heart boxes the other day from Hobbycraft and thought I would decorate one for my spotlight.

I bought this gorgeous K&Co paper the other day and thought it would be perfect for covering this box.
If you want to read more about how I altered it, you can read the original post over at FSS (link above), but basically I just covered the whole thing with the paper, sanded and inked the edges and printed out cute little Rosie and coloured her with my Polychromos pencils and OMS. This was my very first attempt at using the pencils!!
I finished it off with some stringed pearls and that's it really. I didn't want to add more embellishments as it's only a small box and I didn't want to hide Rosie or the pretty papers.

Another pic of just the lid so you ca see the cute doggie :)

There will be spotlights on the design team every week so remember to check out Fred She Said every Wednesday!

Now I have 2 cards to show today as well.
The first one is for the Whiff of Joy Guest DT call. (you never know if you don't try right?)
I followed the sketch and this is what I came up with.

The papers are K&Co, and although they are not the kind of colours I would normally go for, I really like them. Some bits are glittered and other bits are embossed or shiny so they have a lot of texture which you can't really see in the pic but they look kinda funky in real life lol.
The sweet image is of course a Whiff Of Joy, sentiment is Stampin Up! and everything else is from my stash.
I found the gold bead sprays in my stash yesterday and forgot I had them so you will be seeing a lot of these until I run out lol. They are really pretty in real life.
I coloured my image with Pholychromos pencils again and think I am getting a bit better :)

My last card is for the Quixotic challenge which is a sketch by Judy.

A good friend sent me this stamp a while ago (thanks again hun xx) and I don't think I have ever posted a card on my blog made with it so I had to remedy that! (I have made a card with it before though)
I coloured Tilda again with my pencils and OMS, can you tell I am liking using them lol.
The base paper is a Papermania one and I think the other two are by K&Co but I'm not 100% sure. I bought them in single sheets and they don't have any names on them but they were in the same pile as other K&Co ones so I think that's who makes them.
The pretty rose is from Hobbycraft and another one of those metal spray things. Told you that you would be seeing them again lol.

Well I think that's it from me for today. If you haven't joined in with the Fred She Said blog hop you still have time. It ends on the 22nd so you have time to have a good look at all the DT's fab projects and to enter for the chance to win the new releases. You can check out the hop post here.

Right I really am done now lol. Thanks for stopping by.

WOWWEEEE!! What a fab collection of craftiness! You have been busy. I just love that adorable heart box, so professional looking. Your WOJ card is just beautiful .... such gorgeous bright colours ... good luck with the DT call, as you say, you've got to be in it to win it. Your Tilda card is also beautiful. I have that stamp and have never used it, so now that you have reminded me of it, it may jump nearer to the top of the pile! Such pretty colours and I adore that bead spray! kxx
