Through the Purple Haze Challenges BINGO

Its time for a new challenge at Through the Purple Haze challenges and this week we have a Bingo theme, always good to get you thinking creatively!

Both teams are taking part this week for a very special challenge, my team is sponsored by the utterly fab Lacy Sunshine, heres my card

And here's the Bingo card to inspire you

Use 3 in a straight line, mine is twine, flourish and sentiment.  My image is the fabulous Dorina and Bardolf that you will find at the Lacy Sunshine store here.  There is a fab prize of a $20 voucher for the store.

I fell in love with them as soon as I saw them, I adore wolves as my profile pic shows!  I thought a winter/Christmas theme would suit this image so I coloured with flexmarkers in tones of icy blue and grey.  My background card is Kanban, my dies are all Memory box and my twine, gems and sentiment are all from my stash.  My charm is an old earring!

Please pop along to the Through the Purple Haze challenge blog to see what the DT have been up to and  for more details of the extra special challenge this week as you can all vote for your favourite DT project, how exciting!

Gingerloft Bright Sunshine Yellow

Time for another Gingerloft challenge and what a fitting theme for summer, bright sunshine yellow

I decided to decorate a yummy box of chocs and this was the perfect digi.  I coloured it with flexmarkers and then layered on glossy accents.  My die cuts and pearls are from my stash and the mat is Kanban a few dots of yellow flexmarker just to finish off.

You will find the wonderful DT creations and the challenge here

At the moment my box is still full of chocs but for how long......

On the Beach

Just a quickie make today, this lovely weather has inspired me to make a quick summer card.  Having said that its freezing and grey in Ayrshire today but Im not complaining its great crafting weather.

My digi is from the fabulous Crafty Sentiments, more from them on monday as they are sponsoring the next challenge at Through the Purple Haze.  This little beauty was a freebie on offer and she was so much fun to colour!  Ive given her a tinge of ginge hair and peely wally (pale to all you non scots!) skin so she looks like me as a wee girl!

My backing papers are DCWV and my mats and sentiment are Kanban, lace, pearls and oyster button are all from my ever expanding stash.

I would like to enter my card in the following
