Just wanted to show a paper I created today.

Evening all,

Remember that Dolphin digi I created just over a week ago? Well, I have today created a paper using that exact digi. Hope you like it. It is part of a new paper pack I created, 'At the Seaside'. I have not yet put the pack together on this blog yet, but will do at a later stage. I just couldn't wait to show this paper off as I really liked it myself.


Hope you like it. Who knows, I might even put it up as a freebie one of these days.

Thank you for looking, all comments very welcome and much appreciated.

Love,

Jo.

Winner of the Fathers' Day challenge on my blog.

Evening all,

Just a quick post to let you know the winner of last week's challenge. No need for Mr Random this week, there was only one entry I'm afraid. Scroll down for the current challenge and freebies (papers on this and on my card blog and 2 digis as well on this blog) to get you started. Don't miss out on this challenge as you could again be in with a chance of winning either 3 digis, or 2 easel card sheets or 1 paper pack of your choice on this blog.

Now to the winner of the Fathers' Day challenge last week.

The winner with this lovely card


is Suze. She was a winner last week as well and chose the Barbecue image that time as a prize. Lovely card you've made with it.

Congratulations Suze, please contact me again to claim your prize.

Hope to see you all at the colour combo challenge for this week, which runs in association with CRAFT Challenge. Don't forget to enter your card there as well to be in with a chance of winning one of 3 prizes there as well!

Love,

Jo.

Another digi freebie as promised.

Morning all,

By the time this digi will be published, I will probably still be asleep, having a bit of a lie in on the Saturday morning if I can. After a week of getting up at 5am to get ready for work, I believe I deserve one, lol.

It looks like the internet has behaved itself a little, I have also just managed to finish 'Girl and her Dog'. You can find her below. I look forward to seeing her be used in this week's challenge on this blog and at CRAFT Challenge, where the challenge is a colour combo. Don't forget there are some other freebies on this blog as well, a cute little car and also 2 papers of the 'Some Bunny Loves You' papers to fit with the colour combo. There are 2 more papers on my card blog as well.

It looks like I'm really spoiling you this week. So, if you do grab any of them, please leave me a comment. Knowing you enjoy these freebies kind of makes my day as well as motivates to give you some more.

So, here she is:

'Girl and her Dog'

Sorry, this no longer is a freebie, more freebies to follow.


As with the previous challenges and images, if you use her and would like to have the sentiments as well, then please add Girl-yes to your name in your entry and I will e-mail them to you.

If you use any of my creations, please make sure to leave my signature on, give credit where credit is due, do not claim as your own. If you would like to share, please direct people to this blog instead.

Have a great weekend and I hope to see you for the challenges at CRAFT Challenge and on this blog.

Love,

Jo.

Another new digistamp and reminder re challenges on this blog..

Hello again to you all,

I just wanted to show you my latest digistamp. It is of a girl hugging her dog and I hope you like it. Keep your eyes peeled, it may soon be up as a freebie.

I hope you are enjoying the challenges that are currently running on this blog (as well as the freebies). 

Just to remind you, there are 2 challenges currently running on this blog. 

The first one is a 'Fathers' Day' challenge and free papers to be used for this challenge are provided in the challenge post. 

The second challenge runs with the one at CRAFT Challenge and is a Colour Combo challenge. Some papers to fit this challenge are provided in the challenge post on this blog and also some are available on my card blog. To enter in the challenge on this blog you must at least use one or more of the papers provided.

Feel free to use any of my images available as freebies or any images you may already have of mine as well. If you use any of my freebies and you would like the sentiments that go with the digistamps, please indicate so with your entry. Not all digis have sentiments attached though. The image below might be a good one to use for this colour combo as well, but is currently not a freebie yet. If you keep a close eye on this blog you may find it over the next few days though, wink, wink.

So, here it is:

Girl and her Dog



Thank you for looking, all comments very welcome and much appreciated. I would love to know what you think of my creations.

Love,

Jo.

New freebie digi.

Morning all,

Another freebie for you this week. I guess I'm rather spoiling you this week. First there were 2 digi papers from my 'Some Bunny Loves You' paper pack on my card blog yesterday. Also there were 2 other digi papers from that pack on this blog (see post below), which were linked to the challenge at CRAFT Challenge as well as a challenge still running on this blog as well (so, if you use my papers for CRAFT Challenge entries, why not link them in the post below as well?) There is also another challenge still running on this blog (fathers' day), see the link in the side banner for that. So, there are plenty of chances for more prizes to be won at the moment.

And here is another freebie, a digistamp in this case. It is one of my new ones, 'Cute Car' and comes with some sentiments, which are not included in the freebie, I'm afraid.  However if you use this freebie in the challenge in the post below, you may claim the sentiments as well. In that case, please add 'Yes-car' to your name in your entry and I will e-mail them to you.

Remember, this will only be a freebie for just under a week, then it will only be available as a prize on this blog.

Sorry, this no longer is a freebie, more freebies to follow.





Keep a look out, I'm hoping to put another freebie on this blog (one for the girls, lol) over the next few days as well, which could also be used for this challenge. I will however first need to put the finishing touches to that one, so it will depend on how much time I have to get that one finished.

Thank you for looking, all comments very welcome and don't forget: do not claim as your own, leave my signature on and give credit where credit is due. If you wish to share, please direct them to this blog instead.

Please leave a comment when you take it, I love to hear from you and knowing you appreciate these freebies motivates me to keep posting them.

Have a great weekend!

Love,

Jo.

The colour combo we are using this week is 'Some Bunny Loves You', as you can see featured below. To get you going on this challenge, I have 2 papers on my card blog from this paper pack as a freebie and I will put 2 here as well. That should give you some chance of getting started on this challenge.


Please do not claim the papers below as your own, give credit where credit is due and please also leave a comment when you do take it. Knowing you appreciate these little freebies motivates me to keep putting some up. I look forward to seeing what you create with them.

Another chance for a prize in that case, as I will randomly pick a winner from the entries to receive their choice of either 3 digis, or 2 easel card sheets or 1 paper pack from my blog.

Sorry, these are no longer freebies, more freebies to follow.

Do keep a look out for more freebies due to be released over the next few days. Feel free to also incorporate these in the challenge here or at CRAFT Challenge.

Another new image in time for Summer.

Afternoon all,

I have just finished my latest new digi 'Surfer', I hope you like it. I thought this one would also fit in quite well with the challenge at CDAC Digital Drawing Challenges 'All about HIM'. I thought this image would mainly be suitable (but not only) for male cards. Hope you like it.


Hope you like it.

Love,

Jo.

Just in time for Fathers' Day, another freebie or 2.

Afternoon all,

This Sunday will be Fathers' Day in a lot of countries I believe. I had planned to do this paper at an earlier stage, unfortunately I was unable to do so due to problems with my internet connection. For these papers I have used my Male Birthday 2 colour palette as well as some word art with Daddy or Father in a few languages (using Google Translate to find a few translations and hopefully make it useful for lots of people around the world). I also incorporated my convertible images into this.

Hope you like them and I hope you will be able to use them. As our challenge at CRAFT Challenge is to create something along the theme of Fathers' Day, these papers (and the one in a post below from the same pack) could be of use.

As this is the 100th post on this blog, I will celebrate this with a special 2 papers at one time. Don't forget to leave a comment to let me know you've grabbed it and to not claim it as your own.


Sorry, no longer a freebie on this post, still to be found
on challenge post till 23rd of June.

Have a great weekend all!

Love,

Jo.

I've been a busy girl this weekend, some more images.

Evening all,

I have had a bit of a problem with internet access recently. Not to worry though, annoying as it has been, it has given me the chance to do some more creating. Here are my most recent images created:

Barbecue


'Bomber'


Swimming Pool


Swimming Pool 1
(Has the 'bomber' splashing in the pool)


Swimming Pool 2
(as well as having the bomber, also has someone coming down the slide)


I'm working on a few more images, but they will come once I have time to finish them up as I'm back at work again this week, which means limited time to create only.

Hope you like them.

Love,

Jo.

Freebie for you again, Mouse girl and a challenge!

Morning all,

I did tell you to keep a look out, didn't I? I created this little stamp a few days ago and thought I would share it with you for a short time only. So, grab it while you can. Don't forget to leave a comment to let me know, these little comments tell me you value the freebies and motivate me to continue to leave some for you.

As before, this one is only available for about a week or so. Don't claim it as your own, do not share, but direct others to this little blog of mine so they can grab it themselves. Please also leave my signature on.

As a little extra this time I will also challenge you to use this stamp on a creation of yours (this does not necessarily need to be a card!). I will then draw a winner randomly and this winner can then choose another digi from my digistamp page of their choice as a prize. If the winner is also one of my followers then they can choose to have either 2 digis, 1 easel card sheet or 1 paper pack of their choice from this blog. 

So, do  join in if you can. Everyone who enters this challenge can also have the sentiments with this digi as well. If you would like them, please put (YES) behind your name in the entry box in Inlinkz and I will e-mail them to you.


Sorry, no longer a freebie


And just to get you started, here is a bit of inspiration. This is the card I created with this image. Hope you like it.



Enjoy your weekend, I look forward to seeing what you create with her. Don't forget to leave a comment as well.

Love,

Jo.
