A bit more time to craft challenge 45 for June


This is my design card for A bit more time to craft challenge 45: anything goes. Please click on the link to see the lovely designs of the rest of the team and we hope you will join in our challenge.

For my card I used Lozzy's scratch and grid - you can see Lozzy's lovely papers here - so many delightful papers - and you have the chance to win some by entering the challenge.

The background paper is an offcut of some from Anna Griffin bought long ago. The silver foiled panel was foiled on my todo, using

The flowers were cut with todo dies, having printed Lozzy's papers and then foiled using todo plates.

Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper June 2017 challenge


It's the 1st of the month and that means that there is a new challenge over on my Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper challenge blog.

So this is my card for Craftyhazelnut's patterned paper challenge for June 2017 using lovely pastel papers from Hot off the press (I've had these for a long, long time). This was a commissioned card. I used a couple of delicate butterflies from Hobbycraft and the lovely pink sprig of leaves made up of beads (can't remember where I got it ... ages ago and knew it would come in handy one day). The little bird was from The Works and sentiment circle from Anna Griffin.

CHNC challenge extra for June


As it's the 1st of the month, it's time for CHNC challenge extra for June 2017. Please click on the link to find out all about it, see the lovely designs of my DT ... and I hope you will get out your Christmas stash and join in the challenge - we are now getting towards halfway through the year, so it makes sense to get on with Christmas designs now before it becomes a panic.

Bugaboo Stamps always generously sponsor my CHNC challenge extra and provide images for the team to use and showcase. The image I've used is cat topper Christmas, which is pre-coloured - I mounted on to a piece of red mirror card. The background card and washi tape were from The Works and the wooden snowflakes from Sainsbury's last Christmas time.
