Anyone for Tea!

Yes its teatime at the Colour Challenge over at the Outlawz!

Judith chose our wonderful picture of those scrummy macaroons from Betty's Teashop, if you don't know it google it, a truly wonderful place!

Now what a very tasty challenge this is! I could just devour those macaroons with a lovely cup of tea!

We have a fabulous sponsor this month

I got to use one of their lovely digis for this card

I found this wonderful teapot template on the net and shame on me I forgot to bookmark where I found it, I cut the teapot card from some sugar pink card then used some lovely green paper for the body of the pot. Some sparkly peach glitter card to mount the digi on - a cute gem for the knob of the lid and a little bow and there it is! I think I may have that template as an SVG file too and as I've just bought a portrait I might have to hunt for it!

Come on over to the Outlawz and join us in this great challenge - watch out for some more fun challenges in October, not only do we have another fab sponsor but we will be having a paaarrrtttyyy!!!
See you there with your cup of tea!

Christmas Owls!

Happy Sunday people!

I've had a crafty day today (having a change from preserving!) and I've been catching up on all the projects that have been building on my desk!

This is this month's Christmas Progressive from DS4J, how cute is this!

I had some lovely matt gold square cards and thought that was perfect for the base, the paper is from Kaisercraft, die cut is a Signature die and I can't remember where I got the sentiment from! So why not join in over at DS4J and get a head start on those Christmas cards!

Snow Friends!

We have a new challenge at Penny's and this week we have the wonderful Kathryne from Stamp Art Design sponsoring the challenge - she jumped in at very short notice after another sponsor let us down - what a star!!

I am using one of the new releases from Stamp Art Design called Snow Friends

Our theme this week is to use embossing I did emboss the glittery card behind the snowman but the glitter seems to have masked it! I did also emboss the sentiment, phew!!
I used some gorgeous glitter for the pom pom and coloured the image with Copics.

Thanks for popping by and I do hope you will join us at Penny's Paper Crafty this week for the new challenge!
Don't forget you could win some sweet, sweet images from our lovely sponsor!

This is one of my favourite digis from Fred She Said, I printed it out 4 times and coloured with Promarkers then cut it out and layered up to form the daisy, I cut the frame with a die from my collection then added a pretty teal bow with some bling!

Dragonfly Dreams!

The new challenge at Dragonfly Dreams has started and this month we would like to see your celebrations with jewels or pearls! We all have lots of celebrations, weddings, anniversaries, birthdays and lots more besides so if they've got bling on them we want to see them!
This month we have the lovely Digistamp4joy sponsoring us and we got a couple of their digis to play with

This one is called 'I Do' and is my favourite wedding image - I actually won it when it was first released and have used it so many times! For my background I have used some raspberry pearl card for the base and cut the pretty overlay on my Silhouette Portrait, I just got it and am having real fun playing! I then sprayed with adhesive and covered in glitter, shame it doesn't show too well it looks very pretty! The sentiment is stamped and heat embossed and the image is coloured with alcohol markers, I literally used all the brands I have on this one! Flowers are WOC.

This image is called Wedding Bouquet but could be used for various occasions, this card has been made for a 25th anniversary, again I played with the Portrait and cut the silver openwork heart then cut my image out using a heart shaped die, coloured with alcohol markers as above. The sentiment is hand written then heat embossed and also layered onto the lovely shiny silver that doesn't photograph at all well!

We'd love for you to join us for this challenge son come on over and show us your celebration cards!
Don't forget you can win a $10 GC too!
