So let's get onto to what the team have made this week.  

We are sad to say goodbye to Jane who leaves us this week - thank you for all your lovely creations over the years

Ruth:  I've used Summer Kitten and coloured it up with Promarkers.  The papers are from my stash and I've had them for some time (so I am using them up, slowly!)  I've layered the image onto a vellum die cut and then onto a larger one and raised the image with foam pads.  Charm, embroidery thread and half pearls all from my stash.


Hello,  Billie A. here using the fun image called Summer puppy.  I colored the image with copics and used Lil inker stitch die. I dug through my scraps and found these two papers. I layered the image and then stamped the Sugar Pea Designs sentiment and added a twine bow. I added some flower sequins with a seed bead inside. I finished with some Taylored Expressions clouds and Nuvo glitter pen.


Hello dear Crafters! Marjeta here! The image you see is one of the photo album pages I made for my granddaughter. To decorate I used cute Fabrica Fantasy image that I coloured with Prismacolor penciles. Colours I used: Creme, Beige, Yellow, Nectar, Burnt Ochre, Dark Brown, Light Peach.
In addition to the stamp, I also used the Crelando DP, edge cutter, Crafty Ribbons lace and a wooden dragonfly.



Silke here. For my card I used the sweet digi “Summer Kitten” from the sponsor Fabrika Fantasy. A flowered design paper was first applied to a card. The motif was coloured with copics, placed on a frame and then attached to the card. Now a green stripe with the flower border die was added, also  the hot embossed banner and some green faceted stones.


Hello Margaret here I have made a clean and simple card using Fabrika Fantasy digi stamp Summer Kitten which I have coloured with chalks and Primsmacolor pencils.  Added We are 3 Sentiment from Itty Bitty sentiment set


Jane - I have used the super cute Summer Puppy on my birthday card today; colouring with Copics and chalk. More details and colours used on my blog.



Hi, Lynne here - I have used the cute Summer Kitten from Fabrika Fantasy, coloured with copics. I have added various dies and the sentiment is computer generated. Full details can be found on my blog.



Hello! Kathy here sharing a card that features "Summer Kitten" from Fabrika Fantasy. You can find it HEREI colored the adorable feline with Spectrum Noir markers and white gel pen. Used a new technique from Jennifer McGuire called a Ribbon Slider Card. It is surprisingly easy to make. You can find video instructions HEREI'm providing two photos of the finished card so that you can see how it looks when slid to the "open" position.



Hello! Carole here sharing a card featuring Summer PuppyI coloured this cute puppy with Copic markers and gave him a glossy nose and shiny eyes with Glossy Accents. His background is Fossilised Amber Distress Oxide inked through a hexagonal stencil.  The puppy, flower cluster and butterfly were fussy cut and  arranged onto the background. Strips of torn washi tape were used to ground the puppy. The 'Hello' sentiment is made from Tim Holtz Alpha Stickers. The white card was matted onto kraft card and popped onto a white card blank.


Hi! Hanna here. I've made a tag using Summer Puppy. Such a sweetheart. I've coloured him with Distress Inks and put some Glossy Accents on his little nose. The patterned paper is by Pion Design with the name Viol (Violet) from the Sagan om V√•ren (Fairytale of Spring) Collection.


Just fabulous as always!

Ruth:  I've used Cuddly Critters Cow and coloured her with Promarkers.  I've used two offcuts of card and cut out a semi-circle from each, gluing a join at the left.  The papers are really old and I found them in my stash as I am trying so hard to use up all my odds and ends!


Hello, Billie A. here with my card using the image Sundae.  I colored the image with copics. I wanted it to look like strawberry, chocolate, strawberry and top coffee flavor ice cream. The chocolate chips are throughout the sundae. I went over the ice cream and cherry with Nuvo glitter pen. I then chose Echo park papers and using My favorite things happy birthday die layered it 3 times. I went over the words with glitter pen too.



Hellooooo, it's Jackie here with a cute little rocker card I made with this Dr Digi image called Morag the Moo. I coloured the image with pencils. I added various die cuts and a sentiment. The Dp's are First Edition.


Hello.  This is Kym here.  For my Father's Day card I have used the Dr Digi image called "BBQ Bill".  Isn't he cute?  Not sure that one sausage would feed enough people though!!  I have coloured my image in with Promarkers and used chalks for the sky and grass.  The backing papers are scraps with bits missing here and there (you won't let on my secret will you?).  The Promarkers that I have used are: 

Face/skin - Saffron, Spice and Oatmeal 

Beard - Ice grey 1 and Ice Grey 2.

Guest Designer Jane here, I have been playing with the lovely Morag, sooo sweet.
Coloured with Promarkers onto Neenah Desert Storm card and highlighted with Nuitop pencils.  CAS but she is so adorable, Morag needs to be centre stage with her rosette.

Hi Carol here I used Ted and His Shed coloured with promarkers and made for my grandaughters to give to their grandad on his 70th last week.



Hello...it's Sarah here with the cutest cow ever!! She is Cuddly Critter Cow.

Hi all Janet here, I've used Vic the Viking from Dr Digi too, great image for the men in your life. I've coloured him with Copic pens. All layered up with some lovely patterned papers from my stash and a piece of hessian. 



Hello, to you all! Jolanda here!  Now the summer is coming I made a card with the lovely digi Sundae from our sponsor Dr. Digi. Since I like strawberry and chocolate ice most that's what I coloured with my Copic markers. The cute ice cream paper I found in my stash and the spoon is a die.

Week 14 - Anything Goes Colouring Challenge - Sponsored by A Day For Daisies

Good morning and welcome to The Colour Crazy Challenge blog!

Our weekly challenge theme is always Anything Goes

You can use any colouring medium you like, onto any project you like, and in any colours you like.
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.

This week our sponsor is A Day For Daisies


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 co-ordinator and 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 welcome Monica and Julie to the team who join us from our recent Design Team call!

Ruth:  I've used this cute Just Like Mom Duck which I've coloured with Promarkers.  The papers are all random off-cuts from my stash and I'm trying to use up!


Monica: I have used Dandelions in a Mason Jar and colored the image with my Prismacolor pencils. I opted to make two of the flowers to still be in full bloom. I cut the image out with a tag die and added it onto an embossed card panel with tape and a brad. The cardpanel is popped up with craft foam and the sentiment is cut out of black cardstock. I have kept the white CAS aspect going on this card.


Hello, Billie A. here with my card using the image "A gift from the stars".  I started by coloring the image with copics. I then added glitter to the stars. I added foam backing and added this to the designer paper. I added some ribbon and punched Stampin up flowers and MS leaves. I added some bling to the centers. The sentiment is from Taylored Expressions.  Perfect baby card.



Hello there. Jackie here with a sweet card I made with Flowers in my garden  from the awesome A Day For Daisies. I coloured her up with markers and pencils. I used some beautiful Tonic Dp's and a pretty paper bow, roses and leaf die cuts. I really love how she turned out and hope you do to.


Hi there, Margo here with my card for this week using the lovely Ballet Slippers from our sponsor A Day For Daisies.  I have coloured the digi with my Copic Markers and used a die from Studio Light for the card shape, the ballet dies are from Marianne Design, I had not used them before but they work great with this digi.


Hello! Kathy here sharing a card that features "Breeze In Spring."  I colored the little cutie with Spectrum Noir markers and white gel pen and paper -pieced a scrap of beautiful patterned vellum for her blouse. A handful of pretty flower stickers added some color and dimension to the card. I added a close up of her face to show the delicate beauty of this image. Isn't she lovely?


Hello. Dawn here sharing my project which features "Wild Fall Poppy"  I knew I had to colour this image using my Distress Inks and a waterbrush - it just has that Watercolour feel to it I think.  I used two different background papers on this card which compliment each other nicely and stamped the sentiment using some word chain stamps.  More details on my blog.  There are lots of other Wild Flower digital images over on the Day for Daisies website if you fancy a quick look.  



Hello, it's Julie here sharing my first DT post for the Color Crazy team, and I'm thrilled to be here!  I uses Dandelions in a Mason Jar, using some rather non-traditional colors for my dandelions, but I like how bright they are!  You can find all the details about this card on my blog, and other great images to color on the A Day for Daisies website.



Hi again! Vic here! I though I would jump in this week, and work with team D on the stunning images from A Day for Daisies. I got "afternoon snack" which looks a lot like a scene in my back garden! I used my promarkers and alcohol pens to colour the image, stamped with tree banch and flowers, and added some tiny diecut flowers over the top. I chalked a sky background on the tag and ran an embossing folder through  my bigshot to create the textured background. I may add a sentiment to this card, but haven't chosen it yet. 


Dawn - I chose to use A Day for Daisies -  Daisy Bird Bath and made a CAS card and kept it very simple. I coloured the image with copic markers and popped up daisies and the butterflies. I used chalk for the clouds and then added the sentiment. 



Hello it's Helen here to share my card using the very beautiful 'Bulb Window' image from A Day for Daisies available here.  It's such a striking image and I coloured it with Promarkers adding some gingham paper, a simple sentiment and some gems



Silke here: For my card I used the sweet picture Flower Maiden 2 from A Day for Daisies. A patterned design paper was applied on a card. The image was colored with copics, then punched out and framed before the image was positioned on the card. Two flower tendrils were punched out and placed next to the picture. The sentiment and some rhine stone  were added on  the card.


Hello, It's Sherry here to share my card using the beautiful 'Pearls In My Hair' by 'A Day For Daisies'. The image is colored with colored pencils. Then I cut out two vine dies and colored the leaves with a colored pencil. Used a distressing tool around the image, card and paper then added distress ink. Taped the patterned paper onto the card then glued a piece of coffee stained lace on. Taped the image onto the card, then glued the vines, flowers and flatback pearls on.



Just fabulous as always!

Week 13 - Anything Goes Colouring Challenge - Sponsored by Fred She Said

Good morning and welcome to The Colour Crazy Challenge blog!

Our weekly challenge theme is always Anything Goes

You can use any colouring medium you like, onto any project you like, and in any colours you like.  Please take a moment to read our rules to the right!

This week our sponsor is Fred She Said


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 sad to say goodbye to Melle Clef who is stepping down from the DT and this is her last week - thank you for being part of the team!

Hello, Billie A. here with my card using the fun image called Nolan and bullfrog.  I decided to make a scene. I colored the image with copics and the ground. I added a branch in the water which after I trimmed down the card I lost most of it. I added some rocks and weeds. The tree is a stamp from Lawn Fawn and sentiment. I wasn't happy with the top greenery part so I cut out some greenery from scraps. I used my cloud template for the sky and went over the frog and lake with Wink of Stella.  You can see more on my blog at Ink on my fingers.



Hi! Vic here! I used the lovely Calla Lilies image from Fred She Said.  To colour, I used my promarkers and other alcohol pens.  I  had a go at hand-writing the sentiment myself,  and drew a few extra stalk-ends beneath the sentiment.  I inked and embossed the edges and finished off with two cuttlebug die-cut corners. I think this is a simple card. fitting for the occasion. 


Hello. It's Melle ClefI used the digistamp Calla Lilies by our sponsor Fred she said.
I made the background directly on my craft colour cardbase with a few stamps, white Versamagic, Brown Versafine et golden embossing powder. I  printed my Lilies and coloured them with Twinmarkers, and sticked them to my card base with 3d foam. Calla Lilies digi is very easy to colour and I love the effect of these beautiful flowers on my card.



Hello! Marjeta here with my new card. I used beautiful image from Fred she said called Calla Lilies. I colored with Prismacolor Penciles. Colors I used: Chartreuse, Lemon Yellow, Green Grass, Spring Green, Powder blue, Blue Slate and Cool Gray 10%.



This is Elizabeth using a fabulous image called Calla Lilies from Fred She Said. This is a perfect image for the spring season. I colored the image with buttercup yellow, tea rose and peach from Copic markers. I wanted to highlight the pretty flowers so used lots of layering from nested die cuts. Added ribbon, enamel dots and a small butterfly as embellishments.


Hi Dawn Frost here, I've used such a great boy image Nolan & the Bullfrog for my card. I popped up the bullfrog and created a mini scene with clouds done in chalk in the background. I kept the card simple with the only embellishments the hello word die and epoxy dots. 



Janet here, I've also used the Calla Lilies. I've coloured them using my polychromo pencils. The background has been done using an embossing folder and lightly brushed over with some squeezed lemonade distress ink.


Just fabulous as always!
