Create or Use a Mask

Good morning bloggers - how are we all - well I hope and looking forward to Spring and the warmer weather.

The challenge over at CRAFT this week is make or use a mask - not my favourite theme only because I don't like masks or puppets!!!

Anyhoo here is my card (which I am not thrilled with) but wanted a theatrical mask to use and the ribbon was off a present I received at Christmas - loved the sparkle...

Do come and join us and show us your masks ( my team-mates have interpreted this challenge in various ways - so lots of inspiration for you all)

Love is in the Air

Well it is over at CRAFT Challenges..our theme this week is Valentines Day/Love and we have some super sponsors including Karen's Doodles which is where i got my lovely cute digi...

The backing papers were a gift from my SIL and I have used my promarkers to colour the image and finally some gross grain ribbon from my stash and a heart shaped button.

It would be lovely if you came and joined us with our challenge and you just may end up being one of our winners..

See you all over there

Cute and girly challenge...

Nutcrafters challenge this time is Cute and Girly and has been chosen by Helen.  Remember you don't have to use a nutcrafter image but I did, I love this little cutie digi.

I have coloured my digi using promarkers and flexmarkers and then punched some tiny butterflies from some embossed card.  I love the curly swirly sentiment.
So do please come and join us at Nutcrafters and we promise to come and visit your blogs for a nosey.

Until next time stay warm and cosy

Christmas in January!!!

Oh no I hear you more Christmas cards...but the idea is that each month over at CRAFT challenges we will have a Christmas themed challenge to make sure we don't end up making Christmas cards all through December.  Little and often and all that, well that's my theory.

so here is my little card using a fab digi from Robyn's Fetish - |I just fell in love with this little cute mouse

I shall look forward to checking out your blogs in the cold days ahead, I am at work tomorrow but then i intend to hibernate until Monday morning.  (Apart from walking to the local pub to have Sunday lunch with some friends)

Stay warm and safe on the roads.....

CRAFT Challenges

A colour combo is our themed challenge this week at CRAFT Challenges, lots of blues............

So using a super image ( you will see I have used it before) from My Heart Pieces (Aria), I have coloured her using my promarkers and then found some lovely blue backing paper  in my stash.  Finally I added a sentiment and lots of lovely prima flowers.  I followed a sketch from the Friday sketch challenge blog - thanks for the inspiration team...

We shall look forward to seeing your creations for the challenge

Good luck

Hello and a happy New Year....

Hello my fellow bloggers and welcome to 2013

My 1st card of 2013 is a DT card for Nutcrafters and it was my turn to host the challenge.  So to cheer us all up (well the weather is miserable) I thought a nice flower theme was in order.  So come on crafters get out all those flowers you have stashed away and make something bright and cheerful...  You don't have to use a nutcrafters image but if you do there is a special prize for the winner...

So without further ado here is my card using the flower barrow from Nutcrafters

Do please come and join us and say hello to my super team mates who have made some very pretty cards
