Time for Makeesha's Challenge!

Hi Everyone,

Well, I've been busy over the last week... believe it or not, I have spent most of the week in Cairns (kid-free might I add). It was fabulously relaxing and very enjoyable not having to cook or clean anything!

Now, you may not have noticed my absence as I was actually organised enough to schedule blog posts throughout the week. And let me tell you, I was extremely relieved to see they had worked! I had no access to a computer until Saturday when I arrived back at home. However, they did all work, much to my relief and so I've been able to continue relaxing and make some more cards over this long wkend.

These cards are all based on Makeesha's Colour Challenge to use the following colours:

Ok this first one is my entry to the Colour Challenge #21. I've used "Tote-ally Tess" from the Autumn Mini Catalogue and coloured her with my Stampin' Write Markers and Aqua Painter.

Well, I stamped Tess onto my whisper white card, and then I ended up paper piercing (well I used I scapel so I think I can call it paper piercing) all the way around and then again around the bag.... Mmm very time consuming but I think it was worth the effort!

The Old Olive card went through the Crimper and the Real Red ribbon has been stapled ala Keesh's inspiration creation (couldn't help but case the ribbon idea - I thought it looked so effective and knew it would suit this card rather than a bow!)

I did add a little extra colour for Tess's hair (Creamy Caramel and Close to Cocoa markers) and a little Blush Blossom for her skin and mouth.

And this one I can only provide a sneak peek as it's on its way to a special someone who reads my blog :)

The full card and more details will come later this week!

Thanks for looking,


  1. Wow Richelle, that is such an awesome card. I love it!! It is just gorgeous, beautiful layout, colours and accessories. This card rocks!
    Will send you an email soon, haven't forgotten, just had a few things on.
    Have a great week.
    Love Lee-Anne

  2. Very nice Richelle! I like both of them very much. At least what I can see of the second one! LOL! I didn't buy Totally Tess but I am loving what everyone is doing with it.


Thanks for leaving a comment! It's always good to receive some feedback on my creations!
