Inky Impressions and Digital Tuesday

It's my turn to post on the Inky Impressions Inspirational blog today and for the whole month of October the design team will be making "anything but cards".
I think I have wore myslef out this last few weeks with the anything but cards dt work I have done lol, and I had no idea what to make........until my youngest Daughter Chiara came through to me with a ugly coaster box that she was using to keep her Moshi Monster trading cards in (do you kids collect those??).
So I had to bribe her to give me the box to decorate lol. She wasn't giving in unless she got to choose what went on it, so Chiara chose the image, papers and embellies and I just stuck them on :)

I used the cute Lili's Prayer today and as always coloured her with Promarkers and added some stickles to bits of her but you can't see it in these pics. She is really sparkly irl though.
I already had her coloured and Chiara chose her because she was sparkly lol. She also chose this foiled paper and I have no idea who makes it.
The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and Craft Emma's Store and the little butterfly was from a friend. Chiara added some sticky back gems on the butterfly, so it's not my fault that the gems are stuck on squint! lol

I just love these images, they are so sweet and can be used for any occasion. I'm not keen on stamps that can only be used for one occasion like Halloween stamps, I like to be able to get as much use as possible out of the stamps I buy because I can't afford to buy lots, and I think these ones are great value for money :)

There's loads of other beautiful projects over at the Inky Impressions Inspirational blog from all the design team. There is a new inspirational post every day of the week, so it's the perfect place to go if Mr Mojo has up and left you and you need some inspiration to get you going :)

I am entering my box into these challenges.
One Stop Craft- Anything Goes
ABC challenge- Anything Goes
Pennys Challenges- Anything Goes
Pile It On- Just because (I made this just because it was ugly and I just had to cover it lol)

It's time for a new challenge over at Digital Tuesday and Amy chose "Fall Colours" for the theme.

Our sponsor this week is Wee Stamps and Sylvia very kindly gave the design team some of her images to play with for the challenge.

I used Sweet Blossom and coloured her with the usual Promarkers. This image is so sweet and lovely to colour.
The papers are from my scrap box so I have no idea where they came from, except I know the the orange spotty one is by Papermania.
The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and I used some orange sticky back gems to make some little swirls.

Not my usual choice of colours, but I do like the way this image turned out :)

And finally a close up of the pretty flowers :)

I am entering my card into the following challenges
Paper Play- Autumnal Colours
Stamps R Us- Autumn
Crafts and Me- Use a digi
Fussy and Fancy- Fall or Halloween

That's it from me for today. I have some news to tell, but I have to keep quite for a few more days! Will let you know as soon as I am allowed to lol

Thanks for stopping by
