Scrapping4fun Jan - April winners challenge


As the winner of Scrapping4fun challenge 15 I was invited to take part in the Jan - April winners challenge.

I would appreciate it if you would click on the link and vote for me (if you like my contribution, of course):

This is the information given on Sceapping4fun:

'as you all know, all the Winner's from January up to April, participated in "The Winner's Challenge" for the Award Prize. They all received a sketch and they had the choice to do whatever they wanted.
The sketch was a Card Sketch and some ladies created a layout.


We are going to vote for all of them and this is where all our followers can help.

All the Winner Ladies will have a "NUMBER" with their own "NAME".

example: 00-Rachelle
You can cast your vote in the comment area for the Creation you like most. Do it by writing in the COMMENT area, example: (00-Rachelle).

You can vote on Scrapping4funChallenges Blog and on S4fC Facebook.
You can vote for more than one Creation but only once for a person.

Voting will close on Monday the 9th of June @ 23:55pm European Time.
Please be aware of the time zone differences - on the top left you will find the Date and Clock on the Blog.
We were given this sketch to work with:'


My card has been created using Basic Grey 'sugared' papers and stickers, as well as using a Dawn Bibby heart stamp and freehand drawn stitching. I used an 8" x 8" card blank to give plenty of room to be able to use the sentiment which I think is just right for a card to celebrate the birth of a baby girl. I inked all edges with a mix of antique linen and brushed corduroy distress inks.

The same but different


Three Christmas cards that have been made from almost the same supplies, but they are all slightly different. This is a scheduled post as today is our Wedding Anniversary and we are enjoying time away. I made these in advance for Sarn's Rudolph Day - she asks for two Christmas cards in the same blogpost ... I've included an extra too.

Papers are all Kaisercraft and the pictures are from a LOTV art pad set 18 winter wonderland, each one torn around a perspex oval. The sentiments are odd ones that I've accumulated (have a mixed bag of them).

The glory of Christmas 34: angels


It's time for the Glory of Christmas challenge 34: angels - please click on the link to see the crafting of the rest of the design and hope that you will be able to join in the challenge.

This is my design card. I printed out the sheet music and then stamped the Anita angel stamp and coloured with spectrum noir pens. Just the addition of a piece of ribbon and the card was done - I was tempted to add something else, but resisted.
