Owl always love you

This is a quick card, using some wallpaper for the background - I acquired this years ago and a piece has been in my scrap box for ages. It is a lot more silvery irl - a bit like dufex and changes according to the light shining on it.

The image is 'snowy owl' from Art freebies.

This is for:

Sunday postcard art: 'owls'
Some odd girl style challenge 5: 'so punny' - punny sentiments
ABC: 'Y is for you and me' (sorry this is late)
Cinema Saturday 90: 'star dust' - with a little sparkle - the dufex type background paper - and general silver worn a lot by Victoria
Etsy inspired 99: 'Becky Kazana' - I chose this item for inspiration:

Fleur Anya

This morning I was privelged to receive two Greeting farm stamps in the post from Nutcrafters - I had received a £10 gift voucher to spend with them for winning Nutty Nutshells challenge 18 - you can read about it here. The stamps I chose were Dahlia and Fleur Anya - so I couldn't wait to use one of them.

And mentioning prizes, I was fortunate enough to also win a digi image for Freshly brewed challenge 11 - you can read about it here.

And, as you can see from my side bar, I've been priveleged to be chosen for some top places recently.

By the way, we had a lovely time at the wedding this afternoon - the bride looked beautiful and the groom and best man were very handsome in their outfits. The whole occasion was so lovely and we met a few people who we haven't seen for a long time and one or two unexpected people who we didnt realise had any connection with the bride and groom - it's a small world.

Anyway back to the purpose of this blog post - this is a card for Anyone for Anya sketch time and here is Dawn's lovely sketch:

Papers are BG euphoria and the image, of course, is Fleur Anya, coloured with copics.

This is also for:

Corrosive 74: 'pink and blue'
Ooh-la-la 59: 'birthday'
Totally stampalicious: 'birthday'
Party time Tuesdays 9: 'anything goes birthday'
Paper romance 9: 'birthday/celebration card'
Stampin' B 69: 'make a birthday card'
Stampin' royalty 30: 'keep it simple, sweetie'
Stamp, scrap & doodle: 'CAS'

On your special day

I'm in a wedding mood today - we're going to our friends' wedding at 2:30 (so I mustn't linger on here).

So I've made another quick wedding card. I've recycled something twice for this - I originally used the bride and groom favour boxes from Poundland to create these, using a cuttlebug folder to emboss the bride's dress - and now I've cut them down to flat and put them on a purple Majestic card that I cut the corners with Fiskars nostalgia edging scissors. Just the addition of the sentiment and the card's done. I was tempted to put some flowers on it, but decided to leave it as it is.

This is for the following challenges:

Just scraps 15: 'love is in the air' - wedding card
Sunday stamper 113: 'love of my life' (sorry, no stamping involved, yet again!)
Pollycraft 54: 'love and marriage'
Creative craft: 'here comes the bride'
Paper romance 9: 'celebration card'
Cas-tastic 14: 'bling it up'
Crafty angels 42: 'something old, something new'
Creative cottage 19: 'touchy feely' - plenty of texture created by the embossing, ribbon and gems
Challenge up your life 26: 'celebrations'
Allsorts 63: 'dressing up'
Just us girls 44: 'wild wedding'
Cutie Sunday 102: 'swirls'
Stampavie 103: 'black, white and one more colour'
Stamp, scrap & doodle: CAS - clean and simple

Autumn 3D

Having spent a lot of time recently making Christmas cards, it makes a change to come across a challenge, Hand full of stamps 38, which asks us to create something inspired by September and October. So I've done a simple invertage to give a 3D effect, which is for challenge 30 on Prairie fairy designs.

I'm also linking this for:

Creatalicious 12: '3D'
Simple doodles 23: 'get out of the box' - orange is a colour I rarely use, so this is 'out of the box' for me
Ooh-la-la 59: 'birthday'
Totally stampalicious: 'birthday'
Party time Tuesdays 9: 'anything goes birthday'
Paper romance 9: 'birthday/celebration card'
Stampin' B 69: 'make a birthday card'
Stampin royalty 30: 'KISS keep it simple, sweetie'
Stamp, scrap & doodle: CAS - clean and simple
Alphabet: 'N for nature'
