Wags n Whiskers- Spring

I am so late again!! I just don't seem to have much time for blogging just now :( I have loads of dt cards made, but just haven't had a chance to post them! and I just noticed that I didn't post last weeks Digital Tuesday card on my blog either!! So I have 2 cards to share today and have scheduled a post for tomorrow morning for tomorrows Digital Tuesday dt card while I am on the computer!

So first up is my dt card for Wags n Whiskers. The challenge this fortnight is Spring Break.
I decided that I would use some Springy colours and for the image I thought of "April showers bring May flowers" :)

Sorry about the blurry photos, I think there is something wrong with my camera :( I just can't get a clear pic just now. I did clean the lens, so it's not that lol (wouldn't be the first time I have though there was something wrong with my camera and it was just a mark on the lens!! lol
It doesn't help that I took these pics at night and I don't have a light tent or any daylight lamps! I am going to try to take any pics in the afternoon from now on and see how much of a difference it makes (starting after my card for tomorrow because I have already took a photo of it).

Anyway, I have used some papers from a pad that came free with a magazine. The stamp I have used is called "Love You Sis" and of course is from Wags n Whiskers. 
I have used the rubber stamp but remember they all come in both rubber and digital form.
This image although it is Nikki's 2 girls, reminds me so much of my 2 girls. There is only 19 months between them, but Rhianna treats her little sister like she is much younger than her lol. It's quite cute when she is being the "big sister", but they can also be little monsters and fight like cat and dog most of the time!! lol

I used some lace from my stash and a chipboard sticker I also found in my stash, not sure who makes the chipboard bits, but I think I bought them in the Hobbycraft sale a while ago just because they were reduced lol.
I also used a crotchet flower, butterfly and some leaves from Little Snippets and added a silver spacer and card candi in the middle of the flower.

The image was coloured with a combination of Promarkers and Copics, and I stamped an extra image so I could add an extra layer for their boots and some of the umberella.

You can see the dimension better in this pic.
I love the colours in the card. It's not colours that I would normally use together, but I really like them :)

And my card for last weeks Digital Tuesday challenge where the theme was "Leap Year"- use an image that leaps. Our sponsor was Robyn's Fetish and I used one of their digi images called "I toadily luv you".

I'm not keen on this card, which is probably why I forgot to post it! lol, but I do think the image is quite sweet.
I coloured with Promarkers and used some papers that came free with a magazine that I bought months ago. Some ribbon from my stash and a little froggie from Little Snippets....isn't he cute? lol

 Not much to say about this card, except it's really plain lol. I do love the embroidered frog though. Think I might take him off of this card and use him on another one :) lol

Thanks so much for stopping by. Remmeber my blog candy giveaway is still running (you can find it at the first post on my blog), and for anyone who spreads the word by adding my giveaway to their sidebar or mentioning it in one of their blog posts, I will put their name in a draw to win some crafty bits and pieces from me too :)
