My first challenge theme with the team is a favourite with everyone
and is being sponsored by:
For my card I have used an image from the sponsor and is called Cat in St Patrick's Hat.
I have coloured the image with markers. Green and kraft card with a bit of K & company checked paper are the main materials used. The kraft was cut on the silhouette using and free doily file downloaded from birds cards and a star buckle that I designed. The sentiment was stamped using a Polka Doodle stamp.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank the team for inviting me to join them.
I'm looking forward to the challenges.
Why not hop on over to see what the talented DT have created
9 months off work while having treatments. Graded return to work over the next 9 months.
Then in May not able to drive due to numbness in my feet. Doctors thought this was a side effect of the chemo which should hopefully improve within 6 months. It hasn't so public transport for me which extends my working day quite considerably.
I made this some time ago but never got round to posting it. But thought I would post it to say 'Thank You' to all my blogging buddies who have stuck by me and come to visit and leave lovely comments which have really cheered me up. I know I haven't been the best at commenting during this time but intend to put this right over the next few months.
All pieces were cut/printed using the silhouette.
The papers are Garden Party from Dovecraft.
A button and pearl were added to the flower centers
I have had a little play with the decoupage pad that I bought for Alisha for Christmas, I did ask first!!!
I had a card sent to me for my birthday from my team mate Sue made from this kit which Alisha absolutely loved, so I thought I would get her a kit to play with. The only trouble is she takes over my craft room most weekends when she comes to stay.
The decoupage kit is from Santoro called Mirabelle
The papers were a Christmas present, 12x12 My Mind's Eye - Bloom
Still making Christmas cards to send out. A bit late but have been so busy with orders I'm behind with my own. I have been having a little play with a Woodware stamp purchased at the craft fair at the NEC. I heat embossed the stamp with a platinum WOW powder. Then cosmic shimmer clear glue was used to apply glamour dust to the different size circles.
The panel was then added to a square silver mirri mat with a further panel being added to which a ribbon and bow was added. I think, although this card is quite simple it is stylish.
A cold one here in Northampton, but good news, there's no snow here!
I thought I would share a card with you this morning that I made for an order that was picked up last night. Thankfully it was a hit :)
It's been a long while since I made a card this shape but I was quite pleased with how it turned out
I have used the Do crafts - Woodland Friends CD again to print off the image and papers. There are some really sweet images on this CD for all occasions. I cut out the image then added glossy accents to the berries and glitter to the mouses hat, this was then added to the card with foam pads. The sentiment was computer generated and mounted onto silver mirri. To finish off, a couple of glittered snowflakes were added to embellish.
