Let's craft and create 114

This is my design card for Let's craft and create 114: hearts and/or flowers. Please click on the link to see the lovely designs of the rest of the team and join in our challenge.

My card is dedicated to Eileen Dobson, who was the leader of the challenge blog. This is what Mary Trainer posted on the blog:

It is with great sadness that I have to share the news that Eileen Dobson, owner of this Challenge Blog passed away yesterday, May 31st in Dunedin, New Zealand.

Eileen put up a brave fight for the last few months and to say that we will miss her is an understatement.

Our thoughts and prayers are with her family at this difficult time.

I made a promise to Eileen that I would keep this Challenge Blog going so as of now I will be taking over the running of this blog, although this will always remain Eileen's Challenge.

R.I.P. Eileen dear lady.
We are honoured to have been able to call you our friend as well as our Team Leader.

I wrapped a piece of silver grey netting around the inside of the card with the line of daisies, covering the outside of the card with some unknown paper, adding rub on flowers, the little wooden heart and the peel off sentiment.

More mixed media challenge 6: anything goes + optional colour purple

This is my design project for More mixed media challenge: anything goes + optional colour purple. Please click on the link to see the fantastic creations of the rest of the team and to read what the challenge is all about - we hope you will join in.

I altered a box that had contained an Easter egg (and very delicious it was - huge big egg with lots of chocs inside!). The box was too good to throw away and when I saw the piece of lilac/purple already on the box I decided this would be my purple project. Purple is my favourite crafting colour, so I loved putting this together.

I used urple acrylic paint, brushing and then daubing the paint, drying with the heat gun in between, adding flowers and ribbon from Lozzy and a felt bird:

I added a band of glittered paper to the rim of the lid, adding some Papermania flowers both sides and the felt bird on the top:

The glory of Christmas challenge 86

This is my design card for the Glory of Christmas challenge 86: no patterned paper. Please click on the link to see the lovely scenes created by others in the team and we would love you to join in the challenge - if you don't fancy keeping to the challenge theme you can always enter with anything as long as it's Christmas.

I used four glitter edged squares that I've had for ages (can't remember where they came from - it's about time they're used), topped with the 3D tree stickers which have also been in my Christmas stash for longer than I can remember.

The squares were mounted on to shiny red card (shine doesn't show up here) before being matted on to the white card blank.
