Progressive Challenge July

Good morning everyone.
Well summer is supposed to have started. For many of you, if the pics on the TV and facebook are true, I can see it has. Here, in this corner of Scotland, it's been rather miserable. The weather people say we'll get our summer today. How many hours is still up for debate. You never can tell whether the winter coat is going to be needed here even if the rest of the country is sweltering in a heatwave. 
Enough of my ramblings about the weather and on with the announcement that some have been waiting for............

Team A is starting off this next Progressive Challenge and it's another "Anything Goes", as long you use an image from the vast collection that is available. The Zibbet shop has well over 1200 images now and the savings made by using this shop are passed onto you by Rick.

Salad Days

Donna here with some fun with fruits and veggies.  I don't know about you, but nothing tastes better on a hot day than a cold fruit or veggie salad so when I saw these adorable digis in Rick's Zibbet Shop I just had to color them up.  First up I've got Fruit Monster.  Inside:  How sweet of you!

And here's Salad Bar Monster.  Inside:  Veggie much!  (Sorry, I just couldn't resist)  Both are colored with Copics, and double matted on A2 size cards. Clean and simple and perfect for a thank you card.  I photographed them against some bandana print DP to add to the summery feel.  They'd also be great for recipe cards or cookbook markers, don'tcha think?  Rick's got lots more fun kitchen themed digis in his Zibbet Shop so be sure to check out the Kitchen Robots, too.

Daffo Dill Delight ....

....  Good morning - it's Deborah here with you today.   I'm a bit late with this (you can see the details on my blog if you want).  I've a fun, clean, simple and cute card to share with you today:

Sending Hugs - photo by Deborah Frings - Deborah's Gems

Isn't she sweet?  This little fairy is called Daffo Dill and you can find her and her friends on Rick's Zibbet shop.  I'm going to be back in Wales next week and as the national flowers of Wales is the Daffodil, I had to make a card featuring her!  She's such fun to colour.  Full details of my card can be found on my blog - Deborah's Gems.

That's all for now!

Pansy Fairy

While looking through Rick St Dennis's Zibbet shop {which I might add is something I love doing} I found this gorgeous Pansy Fairy. Isn't she pretty. I coloured her with copic markers and then fussy cut her out and popped her up with double sided tape. I added some kindy glitz to her wings for a bit of sparkle. I started with a purple base card then matted in blue. I then used a pansy paper that I got from Crafts U Print and a pansy decoupage that I also got from crafts u print. I also used a paper doily that I had in my stash as well as a little sentiment saying Especially for You.
The colours that I used are:
E000,E00,E01,R20,E35,E31,V000,V04,V05,V09,E51,B000,BV08,BV02,BV04 AND G000

My Stud Muffin

This new set by Rick is gorgeous. There are so many slim ladies and gents out there that now is the time for the real stuff. Meat on the bones and a little bit of padding! I have been looking forward to colouring this couple since I first saw them and their friends will be here in the next few days. Oh, oh.. I feel a story coming on!
Printed onto neenah and coloured with promarkers (My oatmeal has finally run out!) then imported into Craft Artist 2 for the background and a bit of tidying up. I hope you love this series as much as I do. More images are on my blog if you have a moment to visit me. Sue

Time for steampunk

Hello crafter's, thought I'd bring a touch of steam punk this time.  Using the fab-u-lous  Victoria McSteeme .

Victoria is such a strong character and was fun to colour with pro-markers, limiting the colours used.  I felt she was 'treading the boards' so gave the card a wood effect to tie in with the sentiment.  Curled some wire and added some screws and mirror card for the cogs... all about texture, which I am sure Victoria would have demanded. 

Don't forget you can come and join the facebook group to keep ahead with Rick's news and for inspiration. 

for more details on the make please pop by my blog.

If Friends were Flowers

 have some really wonderful friends and I like to make cards to send to them. In this case I have used the darling digi Summer Wind by Rick St Dennis Mfa. She has such a pretty face.
To make my card I started with a pale mint green base card and then matted in a purple. I then used a gorgeous paper from Wild Rose Studio that I got with a magazine. I coloured my girl with copic markers and then cut her out and popped her up with double sided foam tape. To finish off I stamped my verse that I got with a magazine and added some gems.  This is a typical Deb CAS card.
The colours that I used are:
