Messy Background







Today's Challenge at Make My Monday was chosen by Sian and was way out of my comfort zone, so a bit of a challenge. I used watercolour pens to create the background and actually enjoyed splashing on and overlapping the prime colours, creating a few other shades in the process. A Thank You stamp and a few sequins and I was finished.


 Pop over to the Challenge Blog for some inspiration and see the fabulous makes there.

Up, Up and Away




"Up, Up and Away" is Carol's choice for the challenge at CD Sunday today, that should give plenty of scope for your imagination, I used an image from Sassy Cheryl "Bentley Bears Balloon Lift" and teamed him with papers from Robert Adams CD Rom Printable Gingham, Polka Dot, Check and Tartan Backing Papers.


 Remember you must use something from a Cd and to let us know which Cd you used in order to win a prize or be in the top 3. Please visit the Challenge Blog and take a peek at the team's cards, look forward to seeing your cards there.

Vintage Love




It's Jocelyn's  choice this week at CD Sunday and she has chosen the theme "Vintage Love". Initially I was going to use an image of a couple but then found this beauty of a pair of birds on the Graphics Fairy site and decided to use it and be a bit different. I don't need an excuse to add loads of embellishments but didn't go overboard with this card.


Head on over to the challenge and see the other DT cards then please join us, as long as you use an element from a CD and name the CD you used you will be eligible for a top 3 pick and a prize from Jocelyn I look forward to seeing your creations.

Fancy Folds






The Challenge starting at Make my Monday today was chosen by Nandini and she would like to see "Fancy Folds". Pop over to the Challenge Blog for some inspiration and see the fabulous makes there.

This little box is large enough to hold a sweet, but you could adapt the sizes to suit a small gift, I found the instructions, here , it really is quite simple to make.

Winter in the Mountains




Today's Challenge at CD Sunday was chosen by Margaret who would like to see "Winter in the Mountains" cards. After looking at lots of images I settled on this one from Pollyanna Pickering, because  in the wild, giant panda are only found in the remote, mountainous regions of central China, and as you can see from the frost/snow it's winter.


I kept my card quite simple so that it would be suitable for either a female or male, I can always add embellishments if I decide to send it to a female recipient.


Head on over to the challenge and see the other DT cards then please join us, as long as you use an element from a CD and name the CD you used you will be eligible for a top 3 pick and a prize from Margaret, I look forward to seeing your creations.


Have added template for card, hoe it makes sense

Blue and White




Many thanks to Caz for asking me to join  the Make My Monday Design Team (MMM)  I was thrilled to accept her invitation and today's Challenge "Blue and White" is my first, I would love if my followers popped onto the challenge blog to see the DT creations, and perhaps enter the challenge.

I like to have several cards that can be used to say thank you, or to let someone know I am thinking of them, this is one for that box.I raised the stamped area with foam pads and added the roses (not quite so dark IRL ) to give dimension.

Happy New Year - Ruff Day







 Good morning and Happy New Year to my Crafty friends, this months challenge at  Paper Creator is Anything Goes. My card is a big bit tongue in cheek as I'm sure a few folk will have overindulged over the past week and will be feeling under the weather. It isn't essential to use Paper Creator products to enter the Challenge, but you will gain an extra entry if you do.


This image is called Bad Hair Day and is from the Sassy Cheryl section of the store.
