Valentine collage


This is a Valentine collage that I made for the day, but didn't get it done in time to turn it into a printed card for John (norty girl!!). It was created digitally using the heart shape from Shape collage with lots of photos that I had on the PC. The background is the one that I used for my card for the Sweet Pea Stampers Valentine/love challenge - I showed the card here.

The colours in the photo inspiration for Digitally sweet 76 are all here - and this is 100% digitally produced.

First Easter card this year


This is the first Easter card I've made this year (and I ought to be getting on with lots more) using a recycled image matted on to some very old K & Co paper with some 3D sticker strip from Hobbycraft down the side.

I've used most of the spring colours for Craft room colour challenge

CHNC challenge 165: use a sentiment


It's time for CHNC challenge 165: use a sentiment - and amazing to think that by the time this challenge ends, two months of the year will have passed already, so it really is worth thinking about making Christmas cards now rather than wait for panic to set in later in the year.

So this is my card for CHNC challenge 165 - please join in if you can - it's an 'easy peasy' challenge this time - just add a sentiment! I've used a Di's Digi Download called 'to both of you', coloured  digitally in Microsoft Paint and mounted on to an offcut of Hunkydory card. The base card has been covered with a piece of My Mind's Eye Christmas glitter paper that was left over from a project long ago. It is much more glittery in real life than shown on here. And the snow lady's hat and cuff have been blinged up with crystal ice stickles. The red strip with gold foiling is a left over piece from a Hunkydory kit and the flowers from Hobbycraft.

Suzy Bee's Bloomin' challenge 17: whimsical/fantasy ...


This is my design card for today's Suzy Bee's Bloomin' challenge 17: whimsical/fantasy ... Please click on the link to see the wonderful crafting of the rest of the team and to join in the challenge.

I've used the 'fairy and butterfly' image kindly supplied by the sponsor, the Stamping Boutique, stamping over it with an oval inked with stazon vibrant violet. I then tore round a perspex oval and edged with some of the vibrant violet. The background of the card blank was randomly stamped with a Dawn Bibbly swirls stamp inked with the stazon vibrant violet, before adding the strips of gingham ribbon (I had to cheat with the purple one because it wasn't long enough, so the gap is hidden beneath the Craftime sentiment.
