 Hello Everyone,

I forgot it's nearly the end of the month and I hadn't entered the Rudolph Days challenge for June. So, because of this, I decided to upcycle one of last year's Christmas cards for quickness.

The image didn't look right on a white card so I made a red card blank just below a DL size.  I added a gold mirror card mat to the image and adhered it to the red card.  Nothing else needed as it is quite a busy image, very quick and simple and it adds another to my pile for this year.

I would like to enter:

Thank you for visiting and I hope you enjoy the rest of your week.

Good Morning Everyone,

Time for a new challenge at As You Like It and we would like to know whether you prefer to make feminine or masculine projects. 

I much prefer feminine as I like to add pretty things such as pearls, flowers and anything sparkly.  Floral cards seem to be my fave at the moment  too.

I have used my Spellbinders Be Bold blooms again for this one in pink and white.  Some of the flowers are cut in pink card and some in white with pink ink added to them.  I have cut an aperture with an oval die into some wood grained card and arranged the flowers around.  The sentiment is heat embossed in white.

The sponsor for this challenge is:

with a prize for the lucky winner

I would like to enter:

Allsorts - Summer flowers
Daisy Chain - Flowers 
Crafty Calendar - Anything Goes
Crafty Catz - Anything Goes/add a sentiment
Snippets Playground - Flowers were cut from snippets

I hope you will be able to join in with the challenge and thank you for taking the time to visit.  Have a good day.

Good Morning Everyone,

This is my reminder post for Christmas Craft Creations where the theme this month is Trees. 

I've had this Stampin Up Set "Festival of Trees" for about 5 years now and never used it so I thought I'd have a play with it in different colours.  I've used 3 Distress Oxides and the garland on the pink tree has been heat embossed in silver as has the sentiment. A simple, fun and flat card for posting.

I hope you can join in this month. You have until 12th July to enter and there is a Stampin Up set on offer for the lucky random winner.

Good Morning Everyone,

I hope you had a good weekend.  We had quite a busy day yesterday with it being Father's Day with visitors and then out for Sunday lunch, but I did have chance to make a couple of cards on Saturday when the weather wasn't so good.

I made one DT card and this one which is a 'just for fun' card.  I printed out the Christmas Kitty from All Dressed Up digistamps and coloured with copics.  I then cut an aperture with my MFT dual stitched circles, adhered the image to the underside, rounded the corners and added it to a red card base.  The sentiment was stamped with Stampin Up's Real Red ink.

 Good Morning Everyone,

It is the start of a new challenge over at The Cutie Pie challenge and our theme is "Add a Tag", but we must also see a cute image.

I have used this little cutie called Born to Shop from our generous sponsor Lee Holland.  I have coloured with copics and cut out with a Sizzix oval die.  The papers are old LOTV ones and the little tag is from Mama Elephant.

Blond or Brunette?

Morning Everyone,

It is the start of a new challenge today at As You Like It and we are asking whether your prefer blond or brunette hair and to show this in your project.

I find it much easier to colour brunette. When I attempt blonde, even with recommended colour combinations, I'm never pleased with it.  I have 2 nieces and a granddaughter that are blond so I do have to have a go at it sometimes. 

I made this card with Stamping Bella image "Edna Loves Chocolate" and coloured her with copics.  I do love that sentiment, it's so perfect for a chocolate lover.  I decided to distress the edges of the papers for a change and just added pearls and ribbon for embellishments.

I would like to enter:

 Morning Everyone,

I hope everyone has had a good weekend and some fun time with family over the Bank Holiday weekend.  A just for fun card today made using my new Be Bold Bloom dies from Spellbinders.

I've had the background piece on my desk for a while and can't remember why I didn't use it before so decided to use it with these dies for a pretty floral card.  I collected all my small snippets of plain card and put them in a separate box to cut the flowers.  I still have loads of the paper left so will be using them again sometime.  My favourite Happy Birthday sentiment was embossed in silver and added with a purple mat.

A fairly quick card to make, apart from the die cutting and glueing.

I would like to enter this into:
