This is my design card for Suzy Bee's Bloomin' challenge 123: anything goes with a twist ... add some pearls. Please click on the link to see the lovely crafting of others in the team and we hope you will be able to join in our challenge.

I used an image kindly given by Dazzling Ace Designs, sponsors of the challenge.

The spotty papers are offcuts of Papermania lemon sorbet capsule papers. The gingham piece was rescued from a card received. I used an offcut piece of green card to die cut the ballet shoes using the Tattered Lace die, cutting it (successfully, thankfully) on my todo. A few pearls added here and there, a couple of Hobbycraft flowers and a birthday sentiment and the card was finished.

This is my card, featuring the lovely Crafts 4 eternity image Christmas cupcakes - combining three together (kindly supplied by one of my sponsors) coloured with copics and spectrum noir pens.

This is my design card for Let's craft and create challenge 111: Easter. Please click on the link to see the beautiful designs of the rest of the team and we would love you to join in with your Easter projects.

Fan-tastic Tuesday challenge 126


This is my design card for Fan-tastic Tuesday challenge 126: anything goes with a twist ... for a child. Please click on the link to see the designs of others in the team and join in with the challenge.

For my card I've used Oddball Art Stamps Big eye girl Bonnie bookworm (Oddball are sponsoring the challenge), colouring with chameleon pens (about time I used them again). I used two of the X cut rectangular paranthesis dies to cut the image and the surrounding mat. Background papers are all from my offcuts box, including the sparkly piece of cream card that was embossed using a folder and wiped gently with gilding wax. Ribbon from stash.
