WEDDING CARD


Hi Everyone,

I hope you are keeping well.  I have been to the dentist today, had an x-ray taken and I have to have a tooth taken out on my next visit!  Not something I am looking forward to, but I have been having a few problems with it so hopefully things will improve when it's gone.

I thought I'd share this wedding card with you that has been in my drafts.  It is a 7"x7" card and uses one of my old pre-coloured LOTV prints.



The top die cut is from Spellbinders and the stitched ovals are Tim Holtz Sizzix dies. I have rounded the corners of the papers and added lots of lovely flowers, lace and pearls.  The sentiment is also from LOTV.

I would like to enter these challenges:

Simons Says Stamp Weds - Stitches
Cute Card Thursday - Stitching
Crafty Catz #462 - Anything Goes/Add flowers
Crafty Friends - Anything Goes
Creatalicious - Anything Goes

Thank you for visiting and I will be back on Thursday.

NON CARD PROJECTS AT AYLI


Good Morning Everyone,

It is time for another challenge over at As You Like It and we would like you to show us your favourite non card projects (and don't forget to tell us why please).



Recently mine has been finishing Sam in the picture.  I found him half made in a bag of materials when I was having a sort out, together with the pattern.   I couldn't believe it when I saw the magazine that it was over 20 years ago when I made Sally and she has been waiting for Sam all that time!   I thought it was about time I finished him so Sally could have a companion to sit with in the craft room.

The sponsor for the challenge is:


with a prize of an A5 stamp set for the winner

In addition to the normal prize there will be a separate prize from our

LET'S SEE SOME HOLLY

Good Morning All,

It is time for a new challenge at Sparkles Christmas and this month we would like to see some holly on your projects.



For my DT card I've used the cute Lee Holland digi "Owl Couple".  I have coloured them with copics and added  glossy accents to the berries.  I have made a circular card with a Tattered Lace die and added red ribbon and the sentiment, which comes from a Lawn Fawn set.  I resisted adding any other embellishments to keep it post friendly.

I would like to enter these challenges:

Cupcake Inspirations - Shaped Cards

Creatalicious #162 - Anything Goes
Crimbo Crackers - Anything Goes
Crafts Galore - Anything Goes

Have a good week whatever you are doing and thank you for taking the time to visit.

UPCYCLED OR RECYCLED?

Hi there,

Which one is it, upcycled or recycled? Whichever it is that is what I have done with this card, made from one received last Christmas.


A quick one to enter into the April Rudolph Days challenge.  I cut the image out with a stitched die and layered it onto gold mirri card and two strips of paper from my Christmas snippets box.  The background of the card is embossed and so are the reindeer and I thought it was a good one to keep for such an occasion.

I would like to enter this into these challenges:

Rudolph Days April Challenge - Anything Christmas
Simon Says Stamp Weds - Anything Goes
Crafting by Designs - April Get Ready for Christmas

A quick post today.  Thank you for visiting and hope you have a good week.

FLOWERS OR RIBBON AT AYLI

Morning Everyone,

It is time for a new challenge over at As You Like It and for this fortnight we would like you to show us a project using your favourite of either ribbons or flowers (and don't forget to tell us why they are your fave please).



I do use both, but for special occasions or family/friends I love to add flowers. I think they make a card look extra special.  For this card I used a LDRS Creative All Dressed Up rubber stamp, coloured her with copics and fussy cut her out.  She has been stuck onto two layers of a Go Kreate Die and all the embellishments, doily and lace added.  The sentiment stamps are from LOTV.

The sponsor for this challenge is
