This week our sponsor is Conie Fong Art


Remember you need to claim your prize within 2 weeks as per the rules in the sidebar. Also please allow a few weeks for the sponsor to get back to you with any prizes. I'm sure you can appreciate that they are very busy.

So let's get onto to what the team have made this week.  We are on the look-out for participants to join us for three month Guest Designer positions - if this interests you, please add GD after your name on your entry.  Good luck!

Ruth:  I've used Bunny Hearts Girl, coloured with Promarkers.  After colouring the balloons, I covered them with glossy accents and sprinkled lots of fine glitter over the top.  I've also dotted liquid pearls around the edge of the image and the card blank.  I printed the sentiment myself.


Hello crafty friends.. It's Billie A. here with my card using the image flower bouquet .  I colored the image with copics. I went over the  different parts of the flowers and bow with Spectrum Noir sparkle brush.  I used Simon Says die and added to a piece of designer paper. I added the Pink Fresh Studio puffy sentiment and strips. You can see more of my card by clicking on my name.


Hello, fellow colorists!  It's Julie here using the same image as Billie -- Flower Bouquet, colored with Copic markers.  I made the image large so it would be the focal point.  I used a die from Crafter's Companion for the sentiment and cut it out twice, offsetting it slightly.  I added the butterfly die for a little extra bling.


Hi friends, Michele here using the Bunny Hearts Girl image. I loved coloring the image with Copics and adding glossy accents for some fun dimension. Lots of layers make up this card with some sponging around the edges.



Helloooooo, it's Jackie here. I used the image  Bunny Hearts Girl from our fabulous sponsor  Conie Fong. I coloured with pencils. I used a super 3D emb. Folder in co-ordinating colours. Die cut flowers and a sentiment finish the card.  We love to see your work!  You can see more details HERE.



Hello! Kathy here sharing a card that features a sweet  image and sentiment Conie Fong Art named Bunny Hearts Girl. I had fun coloring this cute little bunny and her balloons with yummy Spring pastel colors (using Spectrum Noir markers and a Sakura Gelly Roll white gel pen.) The fluffy clouds were created with a template cut from a paper scrap, decorative chalks and a makeup sponge (plus a white art eraser to clean up my oopsies!)  


Hi Dawn here with my gorgeous Flower Bouquet from Conie Fong! I coloured my flowers with copics and added stickles and liquid pearls for added dimension as well as popping up the bow. I used the embossing folder dotted with stars and added stickles to that too for an added bit of bling, you can never have too much bling!


Hi there, Margo here. Today I'm showing you my card with Bunny Hearts Girl from our fabulous sponsor Conie Fong.  I have coloured her with my copic markers and use some older backing papers from Magnolia. The card shape is a die from Studio Light.



HI there!  Pam ~ jumping in to add to this week's inspirational cards. I've also used this cute little Bunny Hearts Girl, by Conie Fong for my lattice framed card.  She's enough to make anyone's heart sing!  


Hello - it's Helen here with my card for this week's challenge.  I couldn't resist the very cute 'Bunny Hearts Girl' digi stamp here from Conie Fong.  I stuck to a pink and brown colour scheme and kept my card layout simple to show off the cute image.



Just fabulous as always!

This week our sponsor is Ching-Chou Kuik

Remember you need to claim your prize within 2 weeks as per the rules in the sidebar. Also please allow a few weeks for the sponsor to get back to you with any prizes. I'm sure you can appreciate that they are very busy.

Ruth:  I've used Starry Wish, coloured with Promarkers.  Papers are from Polkadoodles and are no longer available.  Ribbons are from my stash and I've used two different acrylic stamps to make the sentiment.


Hello my crafty friends. It's Billie A. here with my card using the image called Summer goddess.. I colored her with copics. I went over the wings, butterfly and purple flowers with Spectrum Noir sparkle brush. I added some white dots on the dress and wings. with a gel pen. I added this to a piece of Stampin up card stock and some designer paper by Moda. I used Stampin up dies to cut out the Simon Says sentiment. I added some Pretty Pink Posh jewels. 


Hello dear Crafters. Marjeta here. I made a card with Ching Chou Kuik image, who is sponsoring our Challenge. It is called Summer Goddess. I colored with Promarkers and Prismacolor pencils. I embellished with Frantage, lace and hand made flowers.

Hi ! Vic here - I'd like to share this my card with you for this week's challenge :  I used "starry wish " from Ching Chou Kuik. Such a lovely image to work with. I wanted to give it a soft, rainbow look. I coloured her with my promarkers and diecut around her. I think inking around the edges of everything with a rainbow of colours, really lifted this card. The sentiment stamp came in a set and I've had it for a long time.  I love the effect of the stars on this card. They make me think of bubbles. (I punched them in white card, then inked the edges with 4 colours.)



This is Elizabeth with my lovely image from our sponsor Ching Chou Kuik. This image is called Starry Wish. I used watercolors in a palette of green, aqua and blue to color the image. The card was decorated with flowers and enamel dots in complementary colors.



Hi everybody it's Janet here. This is my inspiration card using the Ching Chou Kuik image called Starry Wish. I've gone for a monochrome theme. She is coloured with Polychromo pencils. I've added lots of elements to the card with die cuts, feathers, flowers and ribbon. There is also glitter on her wings and stars.


Helloooooo, it's Jackie here. I used the image Summer Goddess from our fabulous sponsor Ching Chou Kuik. I coloured with pencils. I fussy cut her and place onto a lovely die cut. Pretty dp's and gems along with a sentiment complete.  You can see more details HERE.



Hi everyone AuntySue here with a Christmas card.   I have used this beautiful image called Starry Wish coloured with Promarkers added some tonic Nuvo to her dress and wings and added some shimmer chalk on the background. Pop along to my blog for a closer look.

Please note, we are a colouring challenge and therefore you must display some colouring on your project - I'm sorry but we don't accept pre-coloured images.

Remember you need to claim your prize within 2 weeks as per the rules in the sidebar. Also please allow a few weeks for the sponsor to get back to you with any prizes. I'm sure you can appreciate that they are very busy.

So let's get onto to what the team have made this week.  We are on the look-out for participants to join us for three month Guest Designer positions - if this interests you, please add GD after your name on your entry.  Good luck!

Ruth:  I've used Wine Friends - the sentiment came with the set. I've used Promarkers to colour and found some random papers in my stash that were oddments from another project and thought they would work well with it all.  I've also added a little wine glass charm from my stash.


Hello.  This is Kym here.  It is not my Team's week this week but when I saw the images from the ever so talented Jan from "Jan's Digi Stamps" I just had to play along this week.  For my card I have used the main image from "Beach Friends" along with the sentiment.  I have coloured the image in with Promarkers and used chalks for the sky.  The backing papers are from the nautical collection by Crafter's Companion.  I have finished the card off with a stamped sentiment, pearls and die-cut shells and netting.



Hello! Kathy here sharing a gate-fold card that features a beautiful image and sentiment from Jan’s Digi Stamps named “Country Flowers.” The lovely bouquet reminds me of my sweet Mother, as her flower gardens were a bright shout of color every season. Spectrum Noir markers and a Sakura Gelly Roll white gel pen bring the flowers to life. A square doily, sheer ribbon and little cross-stitch butterfly provide a vintage feeling. I extended the vintage look to the inside of the card by embellishing the sentiment with a strip of the doily. 




Hello, Silke here. For my card I used the digi Botanical Orchids from the sponsor Jan`s Digi Stamp. A tendril pattern was stamped on a card and then green distressed with a sponge. Two stems and leaves were cut out of green cardstock and attached to the card. Two orchid flowers were coloured with Copics, cut out and placed on the card. Finally the card was decorated with pink rhinestones and the sentiment was added.




Hello everyone.. This is Billie A.   I am using the image called birthday friends. You get quite a few sentiments and some images in the group.  I colored the image with copics. I used a speckle stencil and Ranger ink to give marks on the background and give a wall texture look. I went over different parts of the images with Spectrum Noir sparkle brush. The sentiment came with the image.  These ladies are sure having some fun.. You can see more on my card by clicking on my name. 



Hi! It's Hanna here with an explosion box to show you today. I have used Tea Time Stamp Set by Jan's Digi Stamps for my Explosion Box. I coloured the lovely images with Distress Inks. The sentiments are also from the Tea Time stamp set. The patterned papers are from the Rose Field Collection by 13 @rts. I inked the edges with some Distress Ink in Vintage Photo and decorated the box with some flowers and pearls. 




Good morning ~ Pam here to show you my selected image and project card from Jan's Digi Stamp Shop.  I love her Botanical Orchids and put together my Copic colored card that could be used for Mother's Day or any special day.  I was overwhelmed with all the sentiments that come with this image!  What an awesome collection to add to your digital stamp collection! 



Hi, Lou here to share with you my creation using an image from Jan's Digi Stamp Shop. I was taken by the Boy Climbing Tree image and one of the sentiments as it reminded me of my "little boy" who has turned 11 this week. I have coloured the image with my Copics. I kept the card pretty simple and CAS and adhered the image and sentiment to a Kraft card from Envelope Solutions. Further details can be found on my blog post. As you can see here, Jan's Digi Stamp Shop has some lovely images for every occasion.


Hello Margaret here I have used the black and white digi stamp from Jan's Digital stamp set Toyland Bear 674J which I have coloured with Prismacolor pencils and gel pens.  Sentiment from the same set.  With this set you receive black and white and coloured images plus 4 sentiments

Jackie using the wonderful image from Jan's digis called Early Spring Nest. I happily coloured away with my pencils. I die cut into an oval shape, mage a BG with compatible coloured Dp. A bow completes the card.  You can see more here.  Happy Spring everyone!


Just fabulous as always!
