CBC May challenge 10: lovely tags

Sue said: 'We all love tags yes? What do we do with them use them on a gift or add them to card NO NO NO not this time I want you to use tags to make ANYTHING other than what I have mentioned – let your imagination go wild'

I decided to cut tags, emboss with cuttlebug swiss dots folder and make a fan with them. The papers (more like card) are Making Memories:

CBC May challenge 14: downloads

Challenge 14: downloads: 'and the fab Carolyn has designed 4 papers and a sentiment for you so as she has made it THAT EASY!! we also require that you add a HANDMADE embellishment to your creation. You DO NOT have to use everyhing in the download pack you can pick and choose the elemnets you like BUT you do HAVE TO ADD that handmade embellishment.'

A big thank you to Carolyn for the downloads, as well as Sue for another great challenge.

I enlarged a flower from one of Carolyn's papers and printed it in two different sizes on to DCWV blue cardstock - for my own handmade embellishment.

The scan isn't wonderful - the ribbon looks much more orangey than it really is:

HS:MS sleepy

Today on HS:MS: 'Last but not least, our final dwarf - you all knew today's prompt didnt you? Sleepy - show us Sleepy in your space.'

This is a cheat - not actually in my space today - in fact quite a few years ago - our oldest granddaughter (who is now nine):

Bumbleberries CJ

In an attempt to avoid last minute panic, I decided to get my DLO done today on Kathy's fab flower CJ. I mainly used DCWV pocketful of posies papers, a few flowers and bits and ribbons. I inked the edges of the pages with a mauve cat's eye chalk inkpad. Kathy provided chipboard flowers for us to sign in (nice idea, Kathy) - so I covered mine with coordinating DCWV paper and inked edges.
