Nutcrafters Challenge for Today

Good Evening followers - here is my DT card for Nutcrafters

I have used Promarkers to colour - backing papers are ones from a shabby chic set I won - swirls from the NEC last year and flowers from a friend :)  The craft ribbon is like cord material and was a bargain from Boyes in Bridlington £1 for a huge roll so I just had to buy in burgundy and one in a dark grey...finally added some pearly gems

Hope you like and if you fancy joining us with our Ribbon and Bling challenge HERE is the link

Happy Crafting

Final DT card !!!

A very sparkly Christmas card - this is my final DT card for the CRAFT Challenges.  I have loved working with the fab team but after much deliberation I have made the decision to step down.  I have so many projects I want to make and so little spare hours, so for now I am going to concentrate on my long list of projects I have on my desk.

I have coloured the gorgeous image from  Lacy Sunshine Stamps (what fab designs) - Bubbles Ice-Skating with my Promarkers and then added some glamour dust to her headband, and top.  The lovely sparkly ribbon was from a local Craft shop, sentiment and bow from my ever growing stash.

Will end my post with love and hugs to my teamies over at CRAFT Challenges and I wish them all well for the future.  Huge thank you to Jo for having me as one of her team for so long.

A Little Bit of Love

This is the challenge at Nutcrafters this week
"A Little bit of Love"

This gave me the perfect opportunity to use of my favourite Nutcrafters images - just love these 2 cute love birds.

I have used another of my fancy folds cards, some "Sweet Owl" papers and of course out came the promarkers.

Now given that I have had a massive clear out in the craft room and moved lots of things, I was quite surprised that I managed to find everything I was looking for, including the die cut sentiments.

I will be soooo glad once I can come in at night and take piccies in the natural light instead of having to use artificial light....grrrrr

Hope you like my creation and if you fancy joining us at Nutcrafters - well then just do it !!!

We have a great team and lots of inspiration can be found here

Toodles til tomorrow :)

Thought I would share some of the lovely cards we made at our Stampin Up Workshop on Saturday.

We got to use some of the new goodies from the new mini catalogue and we had a great time.

Sue and Elvie always provide us with a light lunch and they work so hard to make our day perfect.

I contributed to lunch this time with a Greek Salad from Slimming World and if I say so myself it was absolutely delicious
We have another craft class on Friday and will be making flowers using lots of punches, really looking forward to that.

Ok well that's all for now...back again soon.
