Watching you at the window...

Oh I do love animal prints, this one is from a Joanna Sheen CD with a little glitter on the vines creeping up the shutters... It reminds me of my little Yorkie looking out the window at everything and everyone passing. I used card stock, backing papers from my stash of printed papers and card and the greeting is from my Polka doodles  Double sprinkles of Kraft CD . I found this piece of lace in my sewing box, must have been my Mothers as I have never bought this one.. so on went my liquid pearl dots in pink. I made a few of the flowers using paper ready made daisy like flowers, just folding them in half and a quarter to make a double flower.  I used my Promarkers to go round the edges of my paper to give it a bit of a shadow and a faux mat a layer.. 

Thanks for looking.

A card for a few challenges...

Hi Everyone I made this card for a few challenges that I have been meaning to enter for a while, so here it is....

I used backing papers, flowers and ribbon from my craft stash and an image from my Polkadoodles double sprinkles of Kraft CD which were coloured in using Promarkers. The words are from a transfer I got in a scrapbooking kit a few years ago. Its so nice to find a use for items that you have had for a while. I punched the leaves from a hand punch and used a die through my cuttlebug to cut my image giving it a nice oblong size. I also used pink little gems and a large clear gem on the centre of the ribbon. The card stock was also from a kit which had already been die cut.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Southern Girls Challenge - Anything goes.

Charisma Cardz Challenge - Pink and Green.

Totally Pater Crafts Challenge 71 - Die cuts and punches

Thanks for looking.

Winter Wonderland Christmas flower Challenge


Morning Everyone and a Happy Sunday to you all. Even though it is a dull and wet day, we really need the rain and its a good excuse to spend the day crafting.

I have collected so much christmas stash that I have decided that this year I will use my current stash up before buying anymore and that is a challenge on its own, the not buying bit I mean! As I am unemployed at the moment I have to turn my pennies over a few times and justify my spend so this is a great way to keep up with my crafting without feeling pinched. (its a good things most of us are hoarders as its come in handy I can tell you).

Enough of that and onto my challenge.

I used a dark cream card  in a 8x8 size, some cream glitter card and some backing papers from about 2 Christmas's ago, the flowered background, and the other is the actual flower which I cut out and 3D, I put a little red glitter on the petals as I believe Christmas cards need glitter to bring them alive! I also used on the corners my Martha Stewart snowflake corner stamp with some red gems and bits inside the snowflakes.

Now back to crafting!
