Hi all, today I have decided to do my post a little different and inject it with a little fun game.
I was so lucky to have won three Lemon Shortbread images recently I thought they were so beautiful I decided to colour them all up and make some cards.
Instead of showing them one by one I am presenting them all in one post along with an additional beauty.
In any comments that are left on this post in the first week can you please put A, B, C or D as your favourite, I will then randomly choose one of the comments to receive a mystery prize, it will be craft related, I hope that you will participate in my little game.
Ok onto the first contender (A)
This little beauty is called JESS she is 3 years of age with a wonderful nature, she is a pure softie, loves her walks and rolls in the grass, she may look  little podgy but rest assured she is all muscle and fit as a fiddle, she loves to be hugged and kissed, those beautiful brown eyes are full of so much expression.

Contender 2 (B)
This gorgeous gal is called 'Flapper Twirl' 
I have coloured her with a mix of markers and added glitter to her turban and necklace, the papers are Basic Grey both image and papers have been mounted onto silver linen card stock, I have added pale blue and Navy blue pearls, sentiment and a Tattered Lace border die.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Contender 3 (C)
This awesome lady is called 'Flowers and Curls'
I decided to go for a monochromatic look, coloured with Warm Grey markers, I stamped the flowers onto the same papers as used in the layers, I also stamped the sentiment, a friend said she looked like a Zombie from The Walking Dead but I personally think she is stunning. 
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Contender No 4 (D)
This gal is called 'Sixtie's Rock and Roll' certainly my era, lol, I coloured with mix of markers, the papers are Basic Grey, image, sentiment and papers have been mounted onto black card, the frame is a Tattered Lace die, I also added some black pearls.

Many, many thanks for taking time out to come visit I hope you will vote for your favourite and maybe you will win a prize.
I treasure your friendship, support and encouragement so much, I would not be here in blogland if it wasn't for you all.
See you soon

Top draw cards! C XX

Jane Savage said...

As truly stunning as your cards are Lorraine (and they are awesome) that gorgeous little girl in photo A wins the day for me. My Maddie (my eldest Staffy) loves hugs too. Not too keen on kisses though! :) xxx

brenda said...

Oh Lorraine, how can anyone chooses when there is that adorable photo of Jess, that is of course my favourite. from the cards C is lovely with the beautifully coloured brown hair and flowers.

I am going to be away from next week so please leave me out of your draw, I know there will be another happy recipient.

Wow Lorraine they are all stunning and beautiful card's love the image's and pic of Jess but my favourite is *C*
Dianne xx :)

Chris said...

All three of your cards are beautiful Lorraine,and each is completely different although they all have much in common- ie your beautiful colouring, lovely designs and excellent craftsmanship. To pick a favourite card I'd have to go for No 2, I love the monochromatic look and the image is a stunner!
BUT for me, the real beauty here is No 1 - no card ban beat a hug with and the love and loyalty of a dog!

Margreet said...

I cannot choose Lorraine....Love the photo of your darling Jesse and I also ove especially your coloring on cards B and C...D is just sentiment, as the backing papers were one of my first papers when I started scrapping (and I still have some bits and pieces of them.

Jennifer Bradley said...

Stunning card, I love the colours you have chosen, the contrast between the navy background and light blue looks gorgeous. The image is just beautiful and I have not long since used this image myself and she is a joy to colour. Thank you for sharing with us at Unicorn Challenge blog. Jennifer DT member x

Lisa said...

Wow, these are jaw-dropping gorgeous, Lorraine!! I love how you've brought the images to life in color!! The cards are all gorgeous and it's so hard to choose a favorite but the Flowers and Curls one really speaks to me!! However, my absolute favorite among the contenders would have to be A!! Jess is precious!! I just want to hug her :) Have a great day!! Big hugs :)

Hugs Christine

cotnob said...

Fabulous cards Lorraine.
Jess is adorable, she looks like she enjoys having her photograph taken.
My favourite card is (B), I love the clean lines and dramatic colours.

Glennis said...

Awesome cards (and dog)!
I vote for number 3(C)

Chrissy said...

Your cards are stunning Lorraine each and every one and letter "C" with your amazing mono colouring could have been the winner..but little Jess stole the show...how could your heart not melt on seeing her...gorgeous..and I remember the day you got her.


Veerle said...

WoW Lorraine, your cards are stunning, superb coloring. And NO card C does NOT look like a zombie. She is absolutely gorgeous. However, how much I love your cards and how beautiful they are, this contest is not fair when you put in a cutie pie like Jess. LOL LOL I myself have 2 four legged babies and I love them dearly. Since I don't have kids they are my babies. They can be so smart and cute and fun and sweet etc etc So I say sorry to your pearls of cards but my voice goes to little Jess. Big hug my friend, veerle xx

Christine Harrop said...

# 3 is my real favourite although they are all gorgeous! I just love this particular image and your card is terrific! Hugs Chrisitne xx

Christine Thomas said...

As always Lorraine your cards are beautiful but A wins it she is adorable, she has the same markings as my Tina had,still miss her 3 years on x

Donna Ellis said...

Wow! Jess is solid muscle? What an amazing young lady she is! Her coat looks oh so soft. All four contenders are remarkable. I'm in awe of contender 3. The sepia tones, with frosty white highlights is magnificent, and very unique, Lorraine! Hugs, de

aussie aNNie said...

As always I adore your cards but gosh I do adore Jess, [A] for me. How can one resist the colour combo, the sweet image and gorgeous 'smile'... hugs.{aNNie}

Rainey's Craft Room said...

A very difficult decision to choose just one from this gorgeous array of cards and the sweet photo of Jess too, but it's has to be 'C' - your stunning colouring has won me over on this one.

Dianne said...

Beautiful, beautiful cards! What more can I say, simply stunning!
Thank you for joining us at Creative Moments xxx

Pamellia Johnson said...

Wow Lorraine, what a busy gal you are!! Your cards are all so beautiful. I especially love flowers and curls, her hair is beyond amazing and I love how you matched your 3D flower embellishments to the ones in the image. As pretty as all those cards are, you know I have to pick Jess as the winner, she just stole the spotlight with her ear bent over like that!! hugs and happy weekend :)

Michelle said...

These are all beautiful. I have to admit that the one in the middle is my favorite. The color of the card and the image is amazing. Wonderful Work.


Stampsnob. said...

OMG What gorgeous images A very lucky win Love what you did with all three.......Lis

cheryl said...

Well all the cards are first class hun stunning images,but my no one has to be jess,I remember when you got her and I think she is adorable. Beating a massive dog lover myself jess has to be my no 1 so its a for me xxxx

MaryH said...

Lucky you to win these cute images, that you've colored & presented with such flair & beauty. Although I think #1 is just about delightful, and I'm so happy that she's in your life - I'll say #2 would be my fav. (I just like flappers I guess! Have some pics of my Mom as a flapper, but don't think her outfit was quite this stylish). Each of your cards has such a different look, with the dp used, the trims & embellies, but the coloring on each is just perfection. TFS & Enjoy #1. She looks very happy. Hugs
