Remembering summer


'Remembering summer' is the theme of the Cheerful stamp pad challenge 119, for which I made this card for the second week - please click on the link to see the lovely crafting of the rest of the team. Sadly, Vicki is taking a break from hosting these challenges - I will certainly miss designing with Vicki and the rest of her wonderful team and wish everyone well in their ongoing crafting. I looked back to see when I first joined the team at the Cheerful stamp pad was amazed that it was back in August 2013, just over two years ago.

This is a similar card to the one I made for week 1 of this challenge, once again using the lovely Miss Lily on the beach image kindly supplied by the challenge sponsor, Little Blue Button, coloured with chameleon pens. Papers and card used to create the background were  from various bits and pieces that have built up over the years, tearing to give the idea of the sea and beach with a torn piece of DCWV summer paper text across the middle and a piece of DCWV flip flops grosgrain ribbon with a few other bits and pieces. I made the bucket and spade look shiny by covering with glossy accents, although that doesn't show here.

80th birthday card


This is my design card for A bit more time to craft September challenge 3 - always anything goes. Please click on the link to see the lovely designs of the rest of the team and join in our challenge - lovely prizes to be won. Big apologies to Lozzy and the team for my lateness - the card was done and as a draft on my blog some days ago, but I forgot to add to for the challenge blog - big apology.


A friend commissioned me to make an 80th birthday card with the request of pink/lilac colours and flowers. The shimmery background paper and the decoupage flowers are from a set bought some years ago. The computer generated greeting was matted on to a snippet piece of Hot off the Press paper, another offcut being used for the panel beneath the number and flowers.

Another card for CCAYR September


This is another design card for CCAYR September: a country Christmas.  Please click on the link to see the lovely designs of the rest of the team and join in our challenge. This time I used some Holly Hobby background paper from a magazine freebie - the corner was a bit tatty, so I decided to cut a couple of corners. I used a torn piece of scrap My Mind's Eye glitter Christmas paper and a shiny gold piece of card (just looks beige here) as a background to the little gingerbread person, adding some poinsettias from Poundland.

CHNC challenge extra for September


It is hard to believe that we are already starting September. Here in the UK the nights are really drawing in (especially on rainy days like today) and Christmas is getting nearer! If you haven't yet started your Christmas cards etc, September can be the ideal time to do so before it gets to the panic season for crafters. I know that many of my visitors have been ahead of the game and entering into my challenges throughout the year, but if you haven't, please step across to CHNC challenge extra for September and join in the fun.

This is my design card using supplies from Bugaboo Stamps who are always the sponsors for my CHNC challenge extra blog. I am so grateful to them, as I know my winners are.

I used digi papers Frosty (red snowflakes) and Girlz Christmas present, adding a big red bow and the sentiment.

Fan-tastic Tuesday challenge 100


This is my design card for this week's Fan-tastic Tuesday challenge 100: anything goes with a twist ... use a number.

I was commissioned to make this card by a friend whose Auntie was to be 100.

Leather and lace


I was invited by the lovely Anne Lise to join her as a guest - you can read more about this here.

I used the lovely 'leather and lace' image supplied by Delicious Doodles, colouring with chameleon pens and mounting on to a piece of embossed paper that was originally gold and I swiped it with a red pen, hence it has a  nice shimmer to it. This was then mounted on to a piece of faux crocodile leather paper. The paper on the right hand side is Black market paper society ebony & alabaster Breakfast at Tiffany's. All papers were from my offcuts box. I used a panel of faux embossed leather with a silver sheen - this is almost like a thick material - it's the last piece of some that I bought years ago at Ally Pally. This seemed just the right sort of card to use it for. the lace on the left hand side is a rub on with some Deco Time pearls added and also on to parts of the image.

This is my design card for Crafting Musketeers challenge 28: use this sketch:

Please click on the link to see the rest of the designs from team B and click here to join in the challenge and see the lovely crafting of team A as well, if you haven't done so already.

The background paper of my card is from a booklet of The country diary of an Edwardian lady papers with a piece of purple Hot off the press paper matted on to it. The oval die cuts were some I recently recently as a prize. I used some snippet pieces of lace across the middle, although I didn't have enough to go all the way across, so careful placement of the ovals with foam pads hid the gap. The oval was stamped with one of my all time Penny Black favourites, sparklers, inked with Stazon gothic purple.

CHNC challenge 242: use something old


This is my card for my CHNC challenge 242 - I'm asking for something old to be used for your Christmas creations - it might be some crafting equipment you haven't used for a while, some old embellishments, papers etc or perhaps an old technique that you haven't used for some time.

I've used all old supplies - The Snowman background paper, a lovely Anna Griffin glittered reindeer and a paper strip, topper and sentiment panel that came with a magazine kit long ago.
