New craftbubble challenge.

A new sketch challenge has been posted this week on the LGS group group on Craftbubble and this week we had celebrity guest designer Kathy Kirby. A very well known member of the Craftbubble community and all round nice gal! She set us a sketch and  the challenge of using a techinique you haven't used for a while or that is new and using colours you don't normally choose.
I have used a Mo Manning image and my papers are from Pink Petticoat. I coloured the card using my Prismas which haven't had an outing for a very long time!
Stop by the LGS group to view the sketch and challenge properly!!

Lothian crafts May challenge.

Over on the Lothian crafts challenge blog which can be reached if you click on the link in the shop you will see that they have a May sketch challenge.

Here's my entry. I have used a lili of the valley image and this little fairy is one of my favourites. the papers are from docrafts V and A papers. It has a kind of vintage feel to it.

My friend's card.

This is for my dear friend Nicky. Every month we choose a challenge which we both do and then exchange cards.  It's a really nice way of getting something nice in the post and of course knowing that your friend has made it especially for you is even nicer!

New Craftbubble challenge.

This week I also set the challenge over on the LGS group on Craftbubble. As usual my fellow design team members have come up trumps and produced some fab cards! I am also seeing that my fellow friends on LGS have also made some fab creations and I would love you to come over and join us!

Here is my sketch and the twist is food. I have used a digi stamp from digi stamp boutique and papers are from Pink petticoat and Clare Curd signature range. I shall also be entering this one in to the digi stamp boutique May competition!

Catching up!

Catching up seems to be what I do a lot on my blog! Anyway, this weeks Willow Sketchie challenge was set by me.  It's the last challenge for a while as WSC is taking a break. The recipe I chose to use was some embossing, some holes and some leaves.  You can buy this little fairy download from Willow designs. Very cute it is too!

Die cut dreams challenge.

I had a look at the die cuts dreams challenge blog and saw that two of my favourite themes were being used Tilda and pink so I thought I would take part this time.  Thanks must go to Debbie of ribbon dreams for her kind donation of the Tilda images.  Thanks hun.  I really went a bit OTT with the pinkness of this card but I think it was worth it!!

On a bit of a roll!

Another digi stamp boutique offering! This time I have used the lovely Coco.

More digi stamp boutique!

I just love these digi stamps!  I do have quite a collection but there is always room for a few more!!

Digi stamp boutique May competition

Over at the digi stamp boutique they have a competition every month as a way of sharing customer's creations which I think is a fab idea! My Jim card is currently linked from their blog to here which was lovely to know so thanks Sally-Anne for that! They have some fab digi stamps in their shop and here's one I made using one of the brand new ones. Perfect for several occasions I thought and fits the bill perfectly for a different new baby card! Always handy to keep in the box for emergencies!!! I'm also entering this one for the allsorts challenge which has a theme of animals.

This weeks LGS group challenge on Craftbubble.

This week on the LGS group Karen set the sketch and asked us to make our own paper flowers. I have made quilled flowers. This also fits in with the Dottie's world challenge this week which is to use sewing on your cards. This also fits in with the challenge on die cut dreams which is to use handmade flowers!!

A golden wedding card

I was asked if I could make a golden wedding card for a couple who enjoy ballroom dancing.  After a great deal of searching through CDs I found this beautiful pair and after lots of fiddling around I came up with this card.  I just hope that they like it.
