CRAFT Challenges

Late evening post from me today as I have been very busy packing and trying to get organised before whizzing off to Cornwall for a few days.  My niece got married in Vegas a couple of weeks ago and so this weekend she is having a blessing followed by a party in Newquay.  I am so looking forward to seeing them all.

Right so now you want to know what the challenge is at CRAFT Challenges this week

Inspired by a book
I chose this oh so cute giraffe from bugaboo and my book is "Jungle Book"
I do hope you can find time to pop along and join us for this challenge

Love and hugs

Wedding Day...

I am really pleased with the way this wedding card has come out...I was inspired by one I saw over at Particraft...just need to practise my bows

Hope everyone has a lovely weekend.

I am off out shortly for a coffee with a friend (craft chat too) and maybe treat myself to a nice bit of cake

Li'l Pirate

Good morning followers

Here is my DT card for CRAFT Challenges and this week we have a colour combo of blues and browns although looking at this it is more a greeny/blue colour way. Anyhoo we would love to see your interpretation of the colours.

 I have used my flexmarkers and promarkers for this image from Kenny K called Li'l Pirate and i know just the person who will love this card - I'm quite pleased with my shading and blending too (for a change) lol

 Do come and join us this week if you can - lots of great sponsors and super prizes up for grabs

Nutcrafters - favourite colour combo

Good morning and Happy Wednesday

Nutcrafters have a great challenge theme this time - favourite colour combo, this is definitely one of mine  - lilac and green, i just think it is so fresh and clean looking

This is one of the new stamps available and i love it- so easy to colour with my promarkers too, I even managed to find a little elephant charm to add to the finishing touches.

Do come and join us if you can, my team-mates have made some stunning projects to share with you

Hope you all have a great day

Love and hugs

Paper Piecing

Good Morning crafters

I have been paper piecing this week for my DT challenge card over at CRAFT Challenges.  I got to use a lovely set from Saturated Canary called " Winnie Goes Camping"

I have coloured the rest of Winnie and her Caravan with my promarkers, used some lush vellum on the front of the card and some DP from my stash- added a die-cut sentiment, a piece of green mesh and a flower that was lurking in the bottom of a box!!!!

As always we have fab sponsors which can only mean fab prizes so feel free to pop along HERE and join in our weekly challenge

Love and hugs til later
