Card for a Child - OLLCB DT


This one is a bit late, I've only just noticed - oohps !,  it should have posted on Monday but was still sat there waiting to post, not sure what happened there.  

This week our new theme is 'A card for a Child' for Ooh-la-la creations challenge.  The image and papers are from Fairies and Blooms CD, I made it for my Grand-daughter Matilda's birthday,  haven't made a twisted easel for a while so that made a nice change. I added some die cut swirls, ribbon and a senti from my stash.

Something Beginning with 'D' - CD Sunday DT

Today my CD Sunday DT card is for my Grand-daughter Ivy's birthday, my 'D' for the theme is decoupage, I've used image and papers from Popcorn Bear - Birthday CD.  the hearts and heart corner and border punch set were from a Martha Stewart punch, sadly the border punch gave up and stopped punching after I had punched a couple of borders, very unusual for an MS punch, unfortunately I can't remember where I got it from. The little hearts scattered around were the offcuts from the main punch. I also used some clear glaze on the balloons, ribbon and 'happy birthday' are from my stash.

Going Round in Circles - CD Sunday DT


The title of this weeks challenge over at CD Sunday sounds a little like me some days, hehe.  Anyway our latest challenge is 'Going Round in Circles', I couldn't think what to do at first, my image and papers are from Popcorn Platinum Edition from Crafters Companion. I ended up with plenty of circles, I also used some purple glitter paper, MS punches, and some little gems, oh yes and some peel offs, I haven't used them for ages.

152 A Special Lady - OLLCB DT

Our latest challenge over at Ooh-La-La starts today, with the theme of 'A Special Lady' I decided to use image and papers from Ooh-La-La's Shawn Jenkins CD. I do love cards with flowers and butterflies. My doily was lightly inked with some purple ink as were the edges of the BP, the two little scrolls are made from Martha Stewart paper clay and moulds, they give some depth,  I also cut some extra butterflies for a bit more dimension and finally finished off with a purple bow and a 'for you mum' sentiment.

Simply Red - CD Sunday DT


It's time again already for another challenge over at CD Sunday, the theme this week is my choice and I've gone for 'Simply Red' so that gives you plenty of scope.  

Mine is made for Grandson's birthday, for the background I embossed some red mirri to give texture , the image is from MCS Collectors Edition, a little bit of BP that was in my paper stash of offcuts, all finished off with Bakers Twine and die cut sentiment.

Happy anniversary - Ooh-La-La Creations DT


What an awful night here in France and the day is not shaping up to be much better, high winds, heavy rain and hail through the night, now it's black skies, heavy rain and thunder, it's so dark we've got the lights on, there has been structural damage in some areas and yet more flooding on the Atlantic coast, 

So onto my card this week, our latest theme over at Ooh-La-La Creations Challenge is 'Happy Anniversary', I've gone for the more masculine type card this time, hence the lack of pretty bows and flowers, instead I've used bakers twine and real sea shells, the image and papers are from the Shawn Jenkins Collection CD by Ooh-La-La, this CD is one of my favourites from their range with so many fantastic images, I also used an Martha Stewart punch on the front edges, insideI've overlaid the BP with a Spell Binders hearts and lattice die cut panel.
