Green & black (but not the chocolate!)

I couldn't resist the reference to chocolate because Green & Black is a manufacturer of yummy chocolate, particularly their dark chocolate varieties - mmmmm - pity that I'm on a diet!

This is for the sketch on Cute card Thursday 117:

I've just gone to Cute Card Thursday to link my card and found that I'm too late and can't leave a comment either - I still want to acknowledge the use of the sketch.

The background papers are from the Bo Bunny flutter range and the pieces across the card are BG offbeat. The flowers are a monochrome white/grey/silver decoupage.

This is also for:

Crazy amigo: 'black, white and green'
ABC: 'X for Xtra dimension' - the 3 flower decoupage
Practical scrappers: 'flowers'
Off the wall craftiness 12: 'inspiration photo' - 'mint, green, black and/or white':

WOYWW - gosh it's Wednesday again

I think everybody in crafting blogland knows by now that Wednesday means WOYWW on Julia's Stamping ground blog.

There's nothing much to show here today (those who know me well know that I tend to tidy up after a crafting day - usually not till the next morning, though - and then I start again to get everything all over the place.

So far today I've made one card, which is shown in the post below this one you can just see it among these as I look to my left:

and to my right there are some DCWV papers that have been out on my worktop now for about a week and I still haven't used any of them - I was going to use them for a 'summertime' card, but so far I've used other papers instead. It's a wonder these haven't been put back in the box yet. The pink and brown papers are offcuts from the digi ones I printed for an ice cream card I made the other day. The stamps on top of the box are now waiting to be used for a WIP that's only in progress in my head so far!

I thought I'd show you my pull out shelf where I keep my big box with all my scrap papers - you can see that when I push the shelf back in to close the cupboard I'm quite often careless with the papers that are sticking up and they tend to get a bit dog-eared. Why is it that, despite keeping one of my crafting resolutions this year to use up offcuts and scraps, that the box still looks as full as it was at the beginning of the year and now we are halfway through! I suppose it might have something to do with still cutting into new papers, although I do try and use up the scraps.

Since I did the above, I've been working on my SALT LO for tomorrow's challenge, so thought I would update and show some of the debris - I managed to cut or tear into four pieces of lovely Bo Bunny paper.

Another day at the seaside

I wish!! A day at the seaside would be lovely.

This card is for this week's CCEE sketch challenge:

Once again I've used Squigglefly 'sunny babies' image, this time reversed - again coloured with copics.

The background papers are English Paper Company all aboard, 3D stickers are Artoz.
