This is my design card for A bit more time to craft challenge 49: anything goes. Please click

For my card I used one of Lozzy's lovely Cream tea papers - you can see Lozzy's lovely papers here - so many delightful papers - and you have the chance to win some by entering the challenge.

The lovely tea cup, flowers and butterflies came from a kit I bought long ago, adding the birthday circle.

A Bit More Time To Craft EXTRA August Challenge


This is my design card for A bit more time to craft EXTRA August challenge: anything goes. Please click on the link to see the lovely designs of the rest of the team and we hope you will join in our challenge.

For my card I used one of Lozzy's lovely Chic Wonder papers - you can see Lozzy's lovely papers here - so many delightful papers - and you have the chance to win some by entering the challenge.

The lovely dress stand, vase and birthday banner were from a Craftwork Cards collection that I bought long ago.The die cut  and embossed butterfly is one that I cut ages ago, waiting to fly on to a card. The panel centre right was taken from a card received and upcycled here, placing the vase so that the leaves looked as if they were in it.

Do-al(l) kreatives challenge 8 for August


This is my design card for Do-al(l) kreatives challenge 8: happy birthday with summer images - I like the title because my birthday is this month - lol!. Please click on the link to see the wonderful designs of the team and we hope you will join in with your entries.

I used the lovely Kris by SheepSkiDesigns, kindly given by them as sponsor of the challenge, colouring with spectrum noir pens and die cutting with an X cut rectangular parenthesis die, using a larger one to cut the striped piece of DCWV paper that was lurking in my offcuts box. The background paper with shells is also DCWV from an old summer collection. I stuck the scrap piece of seaside ribbon on to the netting and added the little chipboard tag. The little birthday sentiment oval is silver foiled, although it looks black in the photo.

CHNC challenge extra for August 2017


As it's the 1st of the month, it's time for CHNC challenge extra for August 2017. Please click on the link to find out all about it, see the lovely designs of my DT ... and I hope you will get out your Christmas stash and join in the challenge - we are now beginning August, so it makes sense to get on with Christmas designs now before it becomes a panic.

Bugaboo Stamps always generously sponsor my CHNC challenge extra and provide images for the team to use and showcase. The image I've used is Christmas jar, which is the pre-coloured version. Papers are from my offcuts box, using the old trick on top and bottom from one piece with another across it because the original piece wasn't big enough to cover the card blank. Glittered poinsettias from Hobbycraft, Santa from The Works, candy canes from stash.
