Forever Friends - Eyelets or Brads

Morning all, I've scheduled this card to go onto my blog because I'm on holiday so I'm hoping that Blogger is behaving and has put it on at the right time. It's my DT card for the Forever Friends challenge which this week is to use Eyelets or Brads on your creations, I have opted for eyelets and have put one either side of my image and one in the middle of the flower and inside of the eyelet hole I have put a glittery gem. Image is of course a FF image coloured with Promarkers and papers are Bloom & Grow by My Minds Eye.

Two Challenges, One Card

Two cards in one day from me I must be on a roll. This one is for the ABC challenge, which is B for buttons and the CCT challenge which is Lazy Dayz - summer inspired cards. Nothing says summer more to me than a nice strawberry ice-cream on a hot summers day but perhaps with the weather we seem to be getting an umbrella would be more appropiate. I have used a gorgeous new digi stamp from CC Designs called Kiki La Rue and the papers are My Minds Eye.

PTW 100 Challenge - Take Your Pick

This is my card for the PTW challenge and this week you can take you pick of any of the past challenges. I have choosen Simply Stripes which was one of the challenges in February 2008. I have kept this one nice and simple and have used paper from a local craft shop but I don't know what make it is. The image is a gorgeous new stamp called Katie from Cuddly Buddly. They come in two sizes, this is the smaller one and you can buy proper little clothes for them too. I have paper pieced my image to match the paper on the background.

I have used a CC Designs digi stamp, coloured with Promarkers with added Glamour Dust and papers are from a local craft shop but I don't know what make they are.

New Home

I needed to make a New Home card for Andrew's nephew and thought this image from Softpencil would be ideal. I'm going to enter this one for the SCSC which is Cute As A Bug, I might be stretching it a bit with this card but thought the Ladybird climbing the roof would count. Papers are from Sweet Shoppe Designs and are by Zoe Pearn.

ABC Challenge

Morning everyone, todays card is for the ABC challenge which this week is Z for zero embellishments. I needed to make a quick Wedding card and thought this would fit the challenge perfectly, I must admit though after taking the photo I did add a few gems. Image is from Elzybells

Wednesday, 5 August 2009


My card for today is for two challenges, the SCSC which is a gorgeous sketch from Jill and the PBSC which has a theme of Summer. Things didn't go as planned with this one though. First up when I went to layer my image onto matching card it was too big for the sketch and covered most of the flower paper so I inked the edges instead with what I thought was the same colour ink as the cardstock but now that it's on the card it looks a completely different colour. Oh well, not to worry. Papers are by Doodlebug.

Forever Friends - Sew Cute

Todays post is my DT project for the Forever Friends challenge blog. This weeks theme Sew Cute has been set by Teresa and we would like to see some sort of sewing on your card, this can be really, faux, doodled whatever takes your fancy.

Not sure what the papers are I picked them up from a craft shop the other day. There have been some great cards and projects made by the rest of the DT, click here to see them and join in the challenge
