Feeling sketchy


This is for Feeling sketchy 195:


I turned the sketch to the left. The main background paper was from Anna Griffin and the other two pieces from Hot off the press. The image was part of a magazine freebie and epoxy stickers from stash.

Birthday buttons


Atm I'm hooked on making cards based on sketch challenges - definitely helping me to get on and make some cards in between life  - lol!

This is for Try stamping -or not - on Tuesday sketch 368:


The 'topper' started off life long ago as an ATC I did for a swap - we used to send within a group, so we always kept one for ourself - hence I still had this one - it already have the Stampington antique buttons inked in stazon red, with the surrounding edges brushed with fired brick distress ink. Buttons were added.

Today I stamped the little Hero Arts 'Have a wonderful birthday' and added the piece of ribbon with hand-tied bow. Background card is Hunkydory.

Colours are for Double D: teal and red colour - unfortunately, the photo or my card has made the red look more pink than irl.

Art Deco birthday


This is for the sketch on MFT sketch 389:


The background paper is from a Tattered Lace magazine and the picture is upcycled from the cover of a notebook. I wish the photo could show the bling ribbon as it is irl. Three pearls added here and there.

Belated birthday wishes

I coloured the large circles with Spectrum noir Amethyst, adding the scalloped ones and flowers from Hobbycraft. It's always handy to have a belated birthday card ... just in case.

CHNC challenge 390


This is my card for my CHNC challenge 390 -  please click on the link to find out what it's all about and I hope you'll be able to join in with your Christmas designs - anything goes as long as it's Christmas with the optional theme of 'non-traditional colours".

The lovely topper was rescued and upcycled from a card received last Christmas, matted on to a large copper tag on to some Hunkydory patterned card, with the addition of some snowflakes and the 'scrabble' letters.
