Love to craft February 7: anything goes


This is my design card for Love to craft February challenge 7 - please click on the link to see the lovely crafting of the rest of the team and also here to see the crafting of team A and to enter our challenge.

I was commissioned to make this card for a brother-in-law who plays bowls. The background is Hunkydory card across which I added the picture of bowls. I used a well loved bowls stamp coloured with spectrum noir pens and die cut with a fancy surround die cut. The gold cup is a die cut I've had for ages, waiting for the right moment, and the circle says 'you're the best'.

CCAYR February challenge


This is my card for Christmas cards all year round February challenge: add red and/or pink and a heart.

Background paper is Basic Grey from one of their Christmas ranges and the gorgeous topper is an Elisabeth Bell one that I purchased from Hobby House to which I added the heart. The mirror card mat was cut on my Scan n Cut. The sentiment panel is an old Anna Griffin one and the poinsettia from Hobbycraft.

Penny's challenge 316


This is my design card for Penny's challenge 316, where the theme is 'anything goes'. Please click on the link to see the lovely designs by the rest of the team and we hope you will join in with your entries.

For my card I used the lovely Fred she said nuthatch coloured image, kindly supplied by them as sponsor. I cut the image with a todo timeless bauble outline die, colouring the top and ribbon with spectrum noir pens, going around the edge of the bauble as well. A snippet of ribbon, some little gems and an Anna Griffin sentiment and the card was finished with everything mounted on to a piece of Hunkydory decorated card.

CHNC challenge extra for February mid-month inspiraton


We are now already halfway through February ... nearly two months of the year gone! It's time for some mid-month inspiration on my CHNC challenge extra for February - please click on the link to see the lovely Christmas designs of some of the team. We hope you will join in our challenge here.

For my card I used some glitter card, mirror card and scallops image, mat and sentiment, all of which were from a set bought long ago. This is a card I made for a commission before Christmas, but didn't have time to blog then.
