Peachy Keen Challenge #55 and a prize on offer!!!!!

Well, when I made my first card, I wasn't exactly thrilled with it for some reason.
It seemed a bit 'bland' if you know what I mean.
Here it is........
As this is a sad card, (and we need those now and again, don't we).....
 ....I thought I'd make a contrasting 'happy' card!......

I used my gorgeously cute little bunny, PK-287, Bawlin' Bunnies.
Only MY little poppet isn't bawlin'!
THAT'S 'coz I masked off her sweet unhappy face
and stamped a happy face, using PK-291, Sampler package of faces.
What brilliant possibilities there are, having the ability to swap and change expressions to suit the mood!!

Well, I hope you like my sad/happy cards today.
There are of course some FABULOUS cards for you, created by my amazing DT Sistahs,
for you to ogle over at the Peachy Keen blog.

Plus!! We have the amazingly talented DIANE (Capadia Designs), joining us this week as our Guest Designer. Please give her some love and check out all the details for playing along with us.  

That's not all folks!!!
I'm giving away a fabulous set of Peachy faces today, to celebrate me feeling as if my mojo is waking up!

All you need to do, is leave me a comment telling me which card you like best. 
The happy one, or the sad one.
  I will draw a winner on Monday 4th July.

Two cards today.

 It's taken me all day to upload these two cards!! Somehow, when I first tried to upload these pictures, Blogger wouldn't comply and instead, lost me my sig image!!!
Well, there's no sign of THAT, but at least I can upload pics again! BAD BLOGGER!
Phew, glad to get THAT off me chest! lol

Onto this first card.......

 I made this for my Best mate's S-I-L
She's been through some mighty traumatic surgery and I hope this will give her a bit of a smile.
The image and the sentiment, are digi images from Bugaboo Stamps and coloured with Copics.
The striped DP is by Doodlebug Designs.
 (I hope it cheers her, even a little).

This second card, I made at the weekend when a great friend came for a visit with her hubby.
We came up here to my craft room and didn't know what to start with,
so I checked out my e-mails and rifled through Marisa's gorgeous blog (Rosemary Reflections) 
for some inspiration.
We found THIS fabulous card and decided to make our own version of it. 

This is mine......
Marisa amazes me. She uses few stamps, but makes the most pretty cards using punches and dies. 
I'm in awe of her abilities.

Well, that's all from me today. I'm off to cry to my son to help me find my sig.
(He designed my blog, should know how to get it back, 'coz I haven't a clue)!

Peachy Keen Challenge 54 is here!

We've been kind and left out the 'twist' for this challenge.

My card is a bit wonky and imperfect.
I'm happy though, 'coz my mojo is coming back!!
For this week's challenge, I set to to play with another new Peachy Keen release called 'Skunk Cheer Up'.
Now, I'll admit it's not my best work, but I'm rubbish at colouring black and wanted to get a bit of practice in.
(I'm still quite chuffed with it though).

I didn't use Copics, (shock horror)! 'coz I don't have enough 'black' type ones.
I used a long forgotten method of pencils and OMS.
It's got a long way to go before I master it, but I reckon this is OK to share.
Not only is my skunk a tad pale, I got the faux stitches wonky!!!
Anyway, enough of my jibber jabber...here's your sketch......
You know the drill, flip it, turn it upside down, stand it on end. 
Whatever floats your boat, but please keep to the essence of the sketch and remember, 
you don't have to use PK stamps, but we'll be tickled pink if you do!
Please hop on over to the Peachy Keen blog for all the details and to see the fabulous creations my fantastic DT Sistahs have come up with yet again!
One lucky winner will receive this fab prize....

Have fun and good luck!

My mojo is on it's way back!!!

Phew!! I was getting really worried 'coz it went walk-about and forgot to come back!!
Well, here's a card I managed to make with a mixture of the new PK Anyday stamps sets.

 I just LOVE these Steve Yarborough images!!
The 'farmer' is taken from 'Hillbilly Holler set 3,
The chicken, the greeting and the barn are from Hillbilly Holler set 5.
They are coloured with Copics and I've added 'grass' via a MS punch.
The sky was sponged with Memento Summer Sky and Danube Blue.

Soon as I get chance, I'm off to make another card. My mojo is coming home!! Yippee!!
