CHNC challenge 208


For my CHNC challenge 208 I'm asking to see whatever is still urgently need for Christmas.

This is a quick card that I made using a picture that was rescued from an advertising leaflet, mounted on to a tent opening A5 card.

This fortnight's Top tip Tuesday challenge it 'inspiration from something in your home' - my inspiration is our tree, which is quite minimalistic and reminds me of the one on this card. This is my tree:

And here is the card:

Pansies and pearls for Suzy Bee's Bloomin' challenge 60


This is my design card for today's Suzy Bee's Bloomin' challenge 60: anything goes with a twist ... pearls. Please click on the link to see the lovely designs of the rest of the team and we would love to see your creations with pearls.

I used the lovely Sparkle n sprinkle pansy ring, kindly given by the sponsor, colouring with Spectrum noir pens and adding some 3D glittered Poundland posies over the top of three of those in the image. I then added the pearls into the centres of all of the pansies, colouring the white pearls with spectrum pens to match the pansies.

The sentiment is a textured Creata rub on.
