Animal antics


This is the first of two cards that I made by upcycling elements from one card. I love the drawings of the dogs. The blue gingham paper was added underneath the three little squares and for the strip with the birthday sentiment.

Using pictures of dogs prompted by Pinspirational 57:


The card blank is deep brown - colours for Come and get it: brown, blue and cream.

Guest design slot for Fab 'n' Funky: favourite embellishments


This is my third week with the privilege of being a guest designer with the team at Fab 'n' Funky and today's challenge is to use favourite embellishments.

I think you can tell that flowers are my favourites, followed closely by ribbons.

Fab 'n' Funky challenge 171 is being sponsored by Dilly Beans:


Dilly Beans kindly provided the 'Molly's hearts framed' digital image that I've used. I coloured with Spectrum noirs (I used to be a real copics fan - still love them - but since I bought some Spectrum noirs I love using them.

I used My Mind's Eye  summer papers (have had these ages) and core-dinations card. Flowers are a mix of Martha Stewart, Prima and Create and Craft silk flowers. The glitter ribbons were from Create and Craft. I've just realised that the turquoise ribbon shows up very dark here.

The Happy Birthday sentiment panel was from Craftwork cards. I used chalks to colour the original white panel.

The back is also decorated with the pink card and ribbons.
