Up, up and away ...


... on a hot summer's day.

I made this card a few weeks ago using digital papers and items from Funky Hand's 'Colour me happy' and 'Happy happy birthday', tearing round perspex oval templates for the image and matting. I added two different strips of Tim Holtz tissue tape either side of a piece of ribbon. With the addition of the black gems and the sentiment the card was finished.

Suzy Bee's Bloomin' challenge 38


Once again this challenge for Suzy Bee's Bloomin' 38 is 'anything goes' - please click on the link to see the lovely designs of the rest of the team and join in the challenge.

For my design card I've used a digital image kindly supplied by the sponsor, Sparkle n sprinkle Vivian hat lady. I digitally changed the outline of the image to antique, printed out and coloured with spectrum noirs. I tore around a perspex oval template and edged with one of the spectrums. The flowers are from Hobbycraft. The background papers were taken from a beautiful Vintage style graphics book that I bought from Poundland - there are so many beautiful patterns in it and the bonus is that there is a CD included so that they can be printed out without spoiling the book - well worth a £1 - a bargain find a few weeks ago.

Completely Christmas challenge 21: sketch


This is my design card for Completely Christmas challenge 21 - please click on the link to see the lovely designs of the rest of the team and please join in the challenge. This challenge is the mid-month sketch:


For my card I've used Lacy sunshine 'flurry' (supplied by the sponsor), colouring with spectrum noir pens and adding Art Institute glitters. Background papers are offcuts, as is the Hunkydory mat used for mounting the image.

CHNC challenge 186: layer it up


This week's CHNC challenge 186 is 'layer it up' - more than one layer on your Christmas creation - easy, peasy! It's very hot in this part of the UK atm, so I think we need something easy to craft ... and a further opportunity to build up the supply of Christmas cards - of course, you might not have started your Christmas cards to do so - perhaps I can tempt you with this challenge.

For my card I've used an offcut upcycled from a Christmas gift pad (the card with text on), some offcut pieces of My Mind's Eye Lost and Found Christmas and some more of those stickers that were used last week - while supplies were out on my worktop I decided to make a few similar cards, so, yes, you did see one a bit like this for last week's challenge (and, watch this space, because there'll be a similar one for next week's challenge):
