Buckwells Crafty challenges

I was so excited and privileged to be asked to be on the design team for Buckwells Crafty challenge. The design team are introducing themselves today, so please click on the link and start to get to know them and find out about the monthly challenges that will start on 1 October.

Lozzy has started the challenge blog, having launched her online shop Buckwell Craft Supplies. Please have a look there and I think you will be tempted to buy some of the very reasonably priced goodies that Lozzy is selling.

I've had fun today making my first design card ready for the challenge launch on 1 October, but, of course, I can't show anything now ... but I might just hint that ribbon might be involved.

Hope to see you at Buckwells Crafty challenge.

Tear it to pieces

'Tear it to pieces' is the theme for today's new challenge on the Sweet pea stampers blog. Please click on the link to see the amazing designs of the rest of the team and we would love you to get tearing and join in our challenge.

This is my design card using Joanne Schempp's Mercedes stamp, inked with memento tuxedo black and coloured with spectrum noir pens. I then tore round the image and distressed with salty ocean DI. The two papers used underneath were from my scraps box - I tore the edges and added a piece of ribbon to the striped BG cupcake snippet.

This is also for:
