No stamping


'No stamping' is the theme for the Christmas cards all year round October challenge - please click the link to see the lovely designs of the rest of the team and join in our challenge - and, don't forget: no stamping!

I made four quick cards using Hunkydory supplies:






A bit more time to craft challenge 5


This is my design card for A bit more time to craft challenge 5: anything goes, with Delicious Doodles. The title of the challenge blog is a bit ironic atm because I haven't got any time to craft, so it's good that I made my card well in advance. Please click on the challenge link to see the rest of the team's lovely designs and we would love you to join in our challenge.

I used one of Lozzy's Friday Freebie Big Love papers and Delicious Doodles A Slice Of Cake adding the black hearts design which is actually acetate based but difficult to see here, with another piece on the silver balloon tied with a lovely silver trim. The cute little dolly is one of a collection I had ages ago.

The challenge is being sponsored by Lozzy and by Delicious Doodles, so plenty of prizes to be won.




Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper October challenge


It's time for a new month's challenge and wow, doesn't time tick by so quickly ... and here we are at the beginning of October.

This is my design card for my Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper October challenge - please click on the link to find out what it's all about and use up some of that hoarded patterned paper to join in with your entries. Also please take some moments to admire the lovely designs of my team.

I used some lovely Dovecraft cupcake boutique papers and some jade coloured mirror card as backing for all the pieces.


Pets


This is my design card for Fan-tastic Tuesday challenge 105: anything goes with a twist ... pets. Please click on the link to see the lovely designs of the rest of the team and join in our challenge.

I used Dazzling Ace Designs image (kindly supplied by the challenge sponsor) matted on to black mirror card and then on to some paper from PDA with the lovely paw print grosgrain material down the side and the cute cat button at the bottom left of the image. The sentiment was generated on my Dymo letratag.


CHNC challenge 248: stick it down


Despite everything being packed up on Saturday, I still had my computer that day and I had scheduled my CHNC challenge 248: stick it down, but I failed to blog this here.

So, here goes: this is my card for my CHNC challenge 248 (please click on the link to find out more about this and join in with your entries) - a simple card made with My Mind's Eye papers and some stickers.


Faux stitching


Having moved home on Sunday, not surprisingly, my blog has been neglected and I have big apologies to make to my fellow teamies on the challenge blogs that I've consequently neglected. I did get up to date with commenting on entries to challenges just before the move, but haven't managed to since Sunday.

We still haven't got any broadband connection or landline,, but hoping this will be put in tomorrow morning. I've at least got a dongle so I can get some internet access.

So, here, at last, is my design card for Suzy Bee's Bloomin' challenge 99: anything goes with a twist ... real or faux stitching. My card is very simple with some faux stitching on some embossed black on to which I've matted the Sassy Studio 'don't open till Christmas' image (Sassy Studio are the sponsors of the challenge). We would love you to join in and please click the challenge link to see the lovely designs of the rest of the team.
