My 2nd DT creation for Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenges

Hi Folks
Just wanted to pop by and share my 2nd inspiration project for our new challenge at Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenges.
Our theme for this challenge is:
Anything Goes

Our two sponsors joining us this week are Bugaboo Stamps and Stitchy Bear Stamps.

For this card I have used an image from Stitchy Bear Stamps.


I used my promarkers to colour the image and then used chalk to create some grass and sky.  The papers were from my scraps box.  Some pink ribbon across the centre of the card, a bow, flower and some gems finished the card.

Thanks for popping by and just pop over to Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenges for full challenge details.

Anything Goes at Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenges

I have used a super image from Bugaboo Stamps for my inspiration project.


I coloured the image using promarkers and mounted onto some kraft card.  The papers were in my stash box and seemed to fit the image perfectly.  I added a sentiment from Craftwork Cards which says 'Hope your day blooms with Happiness'.  At the bottom I added a couple of laser cut wooden flourishes from Hobbycutz.  

Thanks for popping by and looking forward to seeing all your entries.  Just pop over to Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenges and check out the full challenge details.  Don't forget to check out the super creations from the rest of the design team.

Indigo Blu Butterflies

Hi Folks
Hope you are all well.  It has been a really hot day again here today.  I just wish it would get a bit cooler at night for sleeping.  But we can't have it all lol.

Today I am sharing a card to enter into the challenge at Lisa B Designs.  The challenge is to use Indigo Blu or Jane Gill Stylised Flowers.  I decided to use Indigo Blu stamps and I have actually taken my inspiration for this card from a tutorial that Lisa did on the Lisa B Designs blog.  You can find Lisa's tutorial and card here.  


I used a stencil from Imagination Crafts for the background.  I stamped the Indigo Blu butterflies onto some card and used distress ink to colour them.  I also added some glitter to the butterflies for a bit of sparkle.  

My card is no match for Lisa's but I am quite pleased with the result and it was great to try something a bit different.  Would love to know what you all think.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Hi Folks
Nice early post from me today.  Hoping to get in my crafty room today as I have got a couple of DT projects to do.  Better try and do that this morning so I can watch the Tour de France this afternoon.

Today I would like to share a little inspiration for our current challenge of Anything Goes at the Imagination Crafts challenge blog.

I used a couple of different stencils (garden chair and birdcages), sparkle medium (black stars, light copper and golden pine) and secret garden patterned card.  All these items are available from Imagination Crafts.  Once I had created the little scene on the patterned card using the stencils and sparkle medium I matted it onto black card.  This was then matted again onto purple pearlescent card and gold mirror card.  I added a ribbon and bow, some pearls and some little punched flowers to the greenery.

Thanks for popping by.  Just pop over to Imagination Crafts challenge blog for full details of the challenge.  All of the design team have been busy and you will find lots of awesome inspiration.

Happy 2nd Birthday

Hi Folks
The weather has been glorious here today.  Popped into town to do some shopping with my daughter this morning and then had a clear out of my wardrobe this afternoon.  The charity shop is going to receive quite a few bags of clothing out of me.  It amazes me how much stuff you can accumulate without realising.  But very satisfying to be able to have the time to get organised and sorted.

Today's card is one I made for one of my daughter's friends little boy.


I used a topper from Lily of the Valley, so useful for those quick cards.  I used kraft card for the matting and the papers are from K & Company.  I added a button, sentiment from Craftwork Cards and some punched corners.

Thanks for popping by and would love to know what you think.

I also forgot to post the winner of my little surprise candy from a couple of weeks ago.  Now the rules for entering the candy were that you had to comment on both my post and the inspiration post over at Imagination Crafts.  After checking all the comments I did a draw from the people who had commented on both and the winner is:


If you could drop me an email (address in side bar) with your address I will get your goodies posted to you.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Create It 2 Magazine from Kraftyhands

Hi Folks
Hope you are all well and had a good week.  Sending big hugs to those who need it.  I have been busy the last couple of days helping hubby to finish clearing out our garage.  I can't believe the amount of stuff he had hoarded in there.  But it is now all gone and order has been restored.  I will certainly have to keep an eye on hubby to make sure he doesn't mess it up lol.

Today I would like to share a card that I made for the Create It 2 magazine from Kraftyhands


I printed out all the elements for this card from the DVD.  The only addition from my stash was the pink backing card, the ribbon, resin flower and gems.  I also added some stardust stickles to the little shoes but it is not showing up very well on the photo.  

You can find full details about the Create It 2 magazine here.  But be quick if you want it as the magazine is a limited edition print of only 200.  Issue 1 did sell out within a month of publication.

Thanks for popping by and would love to know what you think.  Have a good weekend everyone.

Bright and Beautiful

Hi Folks
Well it looks like it is going to be a beautiful day here.  The sun is shining and already quite hot.  It is my eldest daughter's birthday today.  She will be 27 which makes me feel quite old.  Where have all the years gone I wonder?  She is coming round tonight and we are going to have a takeaway so looking forward to that.

I am caught up on all my DT work so thought I would make a card to enter into the Little Claire's monthly challenge.  They have two prizes up for grabs this month and one of them is to be a guest designer for them in August and September.  A fab prize and would love the chance to work with more of their gorgeous stamps.

Here is the card I created using the sketch provided.


This little stamp called Spiky Flower is one of the first stamps that I bought from Little Claire.  I just added a touch of colour with my promarkers and then added some stardust stickles for added sparkle.  Not sure if the photo has really picked this up.  The papers were in my scraps box and I inked the edges with some distress ink.  Added a ribbon and bow, some flowers and gems to finish the card.  The flowers were purchased from Samaflora.  She makes some gorgeous flowers - here is the link to her Facebook page.  I also punched out some little corners for the image.  Do love this corner punch that I have and use it quite a lot.

Thanks for popping by and would love to know what you think.  I do enjoy reading all your comments.

Hi Folks
Hope you all had a good weekend.  Spent a lovely afternoon yesterday at our local town carnival.  It didn't rain either lol.  I must say that I have been totally drawn in watching the Tour de France.  I can see I am not going to get much done over the next 3 weeks until it is finished lol.  The stamina and skill that those guys have on their bikes.  

Anyway, today sees the start of a new challenge over at Kraftyhands.  Our theme for this month is:
Summer Holidays

Here is my inspiration project using images and papers from the Vintage Transport CD which can be found here.


What better way to conjure up thoughts of summer than a camper van on the open road.  All of the elements apart from the Bon Voyage sentiment are on the CD.  It really does make for a quick card.

It's All About the Pets

Hi Folks
Well it was raining when I first got up this morning but the sun is now trying to come out.  Really hope it is good for tomorrow.  It is carnival day in our town and hoping to pop by for the afternoon.  Nothing better than sitting out in the sun with a nice cold drink and a hot dog lol.

Today I thought I would share a couple of cards that I made using the design sets from the Create It Magazine issue 1 from Kraftyhands.  I believe the magazine has sold out now so well done if you were lucky enough to get one.


Look at the expression on that dog's face, so cute.  All of the items on this card were printed from the CD.  The only things from my stash that I added was the yellow card for the matting and some stickles around the image.


For my second card I added some lace, resin flowers and a ribbon bow from my stash.  Again, the image is so cute and could be used for other occasions too.

Thanks for popping by and would love to know what you think.  I love reading your comments and thank you all for your continued support and encouragement.

Hi Folks
Hope you are all well and have had a good week.  I have had a lovely couple of days having my youngest daughter home but will be taking her to the airport this afternoon for her return to Magaluf.  But she will be back at the beginning of September to start her midwife training.  We are so proud of her.

Just For You Hooo!

Hi Folks
Hope you are well and all had a good weekend.  I have had a lovely leisurely day today.  I am still trying to get myself into a routine following my holiday and leaving work.  An exciting week coming up as my youngest daughter is coming home from Magalluf for a flying visit from Wednesday to Friday.  She is enjoying her summer out there and I know she will have some wonderful memories to look back on in years to come.

Today I thought I would share a card I made a little while ago for Kraftyhands.  It is from their What A Hoot CD which can be found here.


The CD is full of lovely images and papers and the owls are so cute.  I used this decoupage image and matted it onto some red card.  The backing paper is also on the CD and matted again onto red card.  For embellishments I simply punched some red corners and added some pearls and a resin flower.

Thanks for popping by and would love to know what you think.

Anyone for Cake

Hi Folks
Hope you are all well.  I have been a busy girl today.  Hubby and I decided before our holiday that we really needed to sort our double garage out.  Over the last few years it has become a dumping ground for anything and everything.  So we made a start today.  Three trips to the tip and we are now halfway through.  It is so satisfying to finally be getting it sorted.  I only had to remind hubby a couple of times that the object of the task was to get rid of stuff and not keep it just in case lol.

As I did not get any crafting done today I thought I would share a card that I made a little while ago.


The card was made using a free Hunkydory kit that was in Cardmaking and Papercrafts several months ago.  The pearly strips are from The Hobby House and the rosette is Papermania.  I added a couple of little butterflies and some stickles around the outside of the card for added sparkle.  

Thanks for popping by and would love to know what you think.  I do love reading all your comments.

I would like to enter the following challenges:
