Ahoy matey!

Can you believe it's only tomorrow left, and then this school year is over? Wow, time flies! It's going to be very sad to say good bye to my pupils... I hope I will be able to work with them after the summer... better get on with that application...

Over to my card; I have used another of the digi images I won recently. "Captain Jack" by Pink Gem Designs. I have paired him with a freebie background by Dustin Pike that I downloaded ages ago (I used only half the original background).
Both digi images are coloured with Promarkers and Captain Jack is mounted with 3d foam on a panel which is also mounted on 3d foam.
This card is for the following challenges:

Sweet fairy on a cloud....

I can't believe it's almost summer holiday... just this weekend and then two more days at work and then I'm off all summer. I don't even know if I have a job to go to after the summer hols are over... But I found out yesterday that the school I'm working at are looking for more people, so I'm going to put in an application one of the nearest days, and hopefully I'll get to stay in the job I'm already in.... cross fingers!

Tomorrow is our wedding anniversary. Married for 11 years... I haven't made hubby a card though... so I'll have to show you another one I made. This one is for Maja's best friend's birthday on Sunday.
I have used one of my new digi images that I won for commenting over at Passion for Promarkers Weekend workshop last week. The image is from Pink Gem Designs. I have altered the image slightly by removing the stars that were next to the girl. I have used my Promarkers to colour the image, the heart border and to lay a shadow around the edges of the papers. I have also added a bit of shimmering water colour to the girl's dress, wings and crown. I guess you can see the shimmer a bit better in the photo below (click on picture to see it bigger). The sentiment is computer made, and it's mounted on 3d foam tape.

Thanks for visiting and for all your lovely comments.

A small brown pony...

Oh my... what happened...? Two posts in two days... lol...

This morning I took Maja to her riding school for her first... ehhh, don't know what it's called in english (Rideknapp)... it's kind of a skill test where she shows that she knows how to handle the horse, brush it and such things. And then, when she passed, she was given a certificate for her wall and a wee pin for her shirt (or helmet or whatever). So I thought that my latest card was kind of appropriate.... This one I have made for one of her school friends that she also rides with...
The horse is a digi image I found on a colouring in page ages ago, and the sentiment is computer made. I have used Promarkers to colour in with. And I don't think it turned out too bad this time. I used the blender pen for the spots/dots on the horse (you might have to click the picture to see it better). The image and sentiment is mounted on 3d foam.

Anyone for Anya, sketch #10

So, it's been a while... still haven't found my blogging mojo even though I should have plenty of things to blog about... like Maja started playing with the school band, the school strike, our national day and so on... I just don't really feel like it.... The creative, card making mojo has to a certain degree found its way back though.

I stamped and coloured the image on this card for last weeks Anyone for Anya challenge, but never made it into a card in time to enter that challenge (which was "double trouble"), so I decided to use the ready coloured image for this weeks sketch on the same blog instead....
The images are from The Greeting Farm's "Wonderland" set. I masked Alice and then stamped the mushrooms. The image is coloured with Promarkers. I'm not too pleased how the colouring turned out on this one though. I guess I still need a lot more practice. Sentiment is handwritten, and the flower is homemade.
Image is popped up on 3d foam.
