Challenge #10 Something For The Guys

Think I have been working in over drive this week and just had to join in again with the fabulous challenge over at Charisma Cardz especially because I need a card for a friend who celebrates his birthday next week. Do pop over and see the wonderful cards designed by the DT´.

A simple pyramid design with a pop out insert.

I think this may well be the last card I post until next month as we are off to UK next week and I will also be attending my very first Craft Fair in Harrogate woo hoo. -x-

A Darker Shade of Pale

There is a new challenge on the blog being hosted by the Creative Card Crew and their very 1st challenge is the theme of green. I made a card last week which fitted this challenge but decided to challenge myself and make yet another card this week so out came a punch and my card fell easily together by being finished with a decoupage I made up yonks ago.

The punch is from Ling Trading Art No 8005, and now you can see more uses for those punches you already have, no need for the fancy circular ones which I myself have never mastered. I punched onto double sided coloured paper and with the aid of my decoupage scissors simply snipped two parts of the flower and folded back.

This is the card I made for an old friend who celebrated her 85th birthday last week and is from the kizzy dizzy range. I matted the images onto pale green pearlescent card and decoupaged the front with an image from a cupcakes cd and added greem gems round the frame.

Insert is decoupaged too.

Thank you for looking and any comments you care to leave. -x-

3 Challenges

Woo hoo two cards in one week, I can´t believe it but again the challenges this week have inspired me so much that I just had to sit down and play.
First excuse, well this is what I tell hubby, was to use my new MSLD punch which I adore despite receiving another two of her punches on the same day and Stamp Something allowed me to do just this as their theme this week is "Favourite Somethings".
I had my image all coloured for Penny Black Saturday Challenge and their theme is a recipe of 3 brads, 2 ribbons and a flower then I couldn´t believe my luck when I espied the gorgeous sketch by Dawn at Inspirational Card Sketches, will definitely use this one again.

MSLD punch,PB clear stamp,papers/brads from PM and ribbons and flower from stash.

Magnolia vs Stampavie Week 17

I couldn´t resist the wonderful sketch designed by Carla over at Magnolia Vs Stampavie. This is the first time I have entered this challenge but it definitely won´t be the last.

Poor Tilda is so tired after her strenuous ballet lesson that she just had to go outside and sit on this log for a breather.
Recipe:- Swiss dots folder, Sugared paper, Cuddly Buddly sentiment, flower ribbon from stash and Tilda coloured with Prisma´s,decoupaged and sat on a Sizzlits Pilings then of coarse my nesties had to be used too. Thanks so much for looking.
