This is my design card for the Cheerful stamp pad challenge 94: anything goes. Please click on the link to see the lovely designs of the rest of the team - and we would love you to join in our challenge.

The background paper is a piece of unknown paper  with some corrugated paper and flower ribbon strips added. The image is Stitchy Bear Lil Diva 'flower fairy' digital image, kindly supplied by the sponsor, coloured with spectrum noir pens. I tore around the image using a perspex template and round another piece of matching paper as a backing.  Flower from Hobbycraft with prima spacer in the centre, Craftwork cards sentiment circle and various gems.

This is my second design card for Christmas cards all year round September challenge. Please click on the link to see the lovely krafty designs of the rest of the team ... and we hope you will join in our challenge with your krafty Christmas creations.

Once again I stamped trees on to kraft paper using stamps from Clearly Besotted 'modern Christmas' collection - the sentiment was from Anna Griffin - mounted on to kraft card, black and then on to a kraft card blank. The felt star buttons (lovely touchy feely) were from Poundland.

This is my first design card for Christmas cards all year round September challenge: keep it krafty. Please click on the link to see the lovely krafty designs of the rest of the team ... and we hope you will join in our challenge with your krafty Christmas creations.

The paper is Bazzill Basics 'Timeless', mounted on to a kraft card blank. The trees were stamped on to kraft paper using stamps from Clearly Besotted 'modern Christmas' collection - the sentiment was from that collection too. The felt buttons (lovely touchy feely) were from Poundland. I added gems to the tops of the trees for a little bit of bling.
