Suzy Bee's bloomin' challenge 10: anything goes


This is my design team card for Suzy Bee's blooming' challenge 10: anything goes. This challenge is being sponsored by Broken Box Stock, who kindly supplied the 'tree of life' image that I've used. I coloured this digitally using Microsoft Paint (seem to have taken to doing this recently). I added the text before printing out and mounted on to some magazine freebie paper.

The paper on the left is some that I've had for ages on to which I put the strip of 'diamonds' from Poundland and some bunting and a strip of  DCWV ribbon.

For this photo for Crazy 4 challenges 217:


As I've covered the card blank with patterned paper, I'm showing this for my own Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper Challenge for January - please click on the link and join in the fun to use up some of your patterned paper (I know that we all have loads of it that hasn't been touched yet) - and there's a prize for a randomly chosen winner.

CHNC challenge 158: upcycle, re-purpose or use a freebie


It's already the second week this year for a Craftyhazelnut's Christmas challenge and for CHNC challenge 158 I'm asking to see cards that use something that's been upcycled, re-purposed or something that was free - this could even be something that has been received, perhaps as a swap or a Christmas present.

My first card was made from a lovely sparkly Christmas card received, which I matted on to silver mirror card before matting on to a white DL card blank. The image with the quote was kindly supplied by  Robyn'sFetish Digital Stamps And More (one of today's sponsors) - I coloured the bricks digitally using Microsoft Paint - this was then matted on to silver mirror card:
