Certificates


Good morning. Well I had a brilliant birthday last weekend, started  last Thursday with a meal out with my friend and ended Wednesday on a birthday bash with my slimming world chums.

Today I start to take advantage of my new 'oapie' status with an eye test, a free one.  Yippee, only free thing I have ever had so clearly there is some good points to reaching the big 60.  

We also start a lovely new challenge at Crafty Girlz today.

Our theme is

Anything Goes or an option theme of Back to School 

I have used a digi kit in craft artist called 'Certificates' so it is sort of 'back to school' but could also be for graduation too.

Why not pop over to our blog to enter your own project and to see what the rest of our design team have posted.

Thank you for visiting today.

See you soon.

Memories


Good morning all.  How are you all? 

Today sees a new challenge beginning at Crafting from the Heart.

Our challenge is sponsored by 



The digi stamp I chose to use from our sponsor is called 'Memories'

I do like Ppinky Dolls digis because can be used coloured or uncoloured.

I chose to keep mine uncoloured for this challenge and have made it up as a sympathy card, a subject that is needed but often hard to make.

I have dies from Sue Wilson Noble collection - the rectangles and ovals.  Also an embossing folder from Sue Wilson.

The sentiment is from Phill Martin, the flowers are stamped and embossed onto vellum and are from Dreamees and the 'leaves' are Marianne dies.

To enter your own project into our challenge follow the link HERE.  Also we have a facebook  page where you can showcase your makes.

Thank you for visiting, hope to see you again soon.




Snow Lady in Autumn


My 2nd post of the day is to launch a new challenge at Get Creative Challenge

Challenge 62 has a theme of
Autumn/Fall

Our sponsors for this challenge are






My post for today is using a digi stamp from Fred She Said Designs.

I have a confession to make, when I chose this digi, called 'Snow Lady Light Up Your Holidays' I had in mind to start my christmas cards - silly me never reminded myself of the theme for this challenge.

You can image when I was sent my digi, I thought, 'Oh Lord have I messed up, then I remembered a conversation with someone years ago, her small daughter had a birthday in November but absolutely adored snowmen, this was before Disney's film with Oleg.

So I thought, follow the autumn colours and make a birthday card for someone who just loves snowmen.  Hopefully you like my finished sample and don't think it too wacky - LOL.

I did print out my image in craftartist and added some autumnal leaves before printing.  I have coloured it in using my copics and also printed a backing paper from the same digi kit.

The dies I have used are from Sue Wilson noble collection - you will gathered by now I use these collections loads.  The flowers were die cut using dies from Tattered Lace and I finished off with leaf dies from Sue Wilson.  Given I also am a big face of nuvo drops I have added those too.

To enter your own project into our challenge follow the ling HERE but don't forget to follow the theme.

That's me for today  Thanks for visiting again.

See you soon and do take care.

Friendship



Good morning again.  Yes another post today.

A new challenge is beginning at SimplyCreateToo.

Challenge 131 has a theme of


To make this card I used one of my tonic dies cut into the backing card.  I then stamped my sentiment which is from a stamp set by Justrite.  The backing paper was a freebie from a tattered lace magazine.

The flowers are a die from tattered lace cut in yellow and white card layered up and finished off with a blue button.  Flourishes are also a die, I think from sue wilson and all placed on top of my two lots of ribbon.  Finally I finished off with some nuvo tonic pearl drops in the corners.

Floral Doodles


Good morning hope you have had a good August?

I hadn't done much crafting really during August due to one thing and another, although I have been doing my knitting.  Finished a summer top and a cardigan for my Mom, well I have to sew the buttons on but it's almost finished.  I do love knitting but I hate the sewing up.

My post today is for Crafty Girls Creations September Challenge.

Challenge 39 is sponsored by



I have used a digi stamp called Floral Doodles 02 which I chose specifically to be able to use it in Serif Craft Artist.

As you will see I have changed the colour.  The quote is one of my favourites and is actually from a digi kit called 'Born to Shop 2'.

It is such an easy digi to use especially if you want a quick and easy card.
