prize

For my project this week I used a large tag (8x4) and covered it in some Kimberly Hodges paper from K&Co. The image is 'For Mom' from Simply B Stamps and I have coloured with a mix of copics, chameleons and SN pencils then inked around the edge.  I've embellished with a pearl for her earring, some prima flowers, cricut cut leaves and some ribbon.  I may add a sentiment at a later date when I have decided who the recipient is.

Crafty Catz Challenge #419 ~ Anything Goes

Well here I am somewhat late but here with this weeks challenge for Crafty Catz.  The theme is 'Anything Goes'.  This week our fabulous leader Carol is the host and the twist she gave the DT was to make black & white cards.  Be sure to check out the blog as those talented ladies of the DT have really worked their magic and there are so many different cards, you're sure to be inspired.  This weeks sponsor is the wonderful

Prize is 3 digital images 

At the moment my crafting time is very limited but I did manage a quick play with the Cricut Explore Air 2 and I treated myself to a yearly subscription of Cricut Access so there are LOTS of cuts to play with (almost too many to choose from!) Anyway I found this nice squirley Christmas tree and cut it out of black cs but before adding it directly to the card front I used the Cricut to write the sentiment.  So there you have it a very quick and simple card, hope you like it.

Crafty Catz Challenge #418 ~Anything Goes

Well hello, it's been a while since I last posted but I'm here to share my latest project with this weeks challenge over at Crafty Catz.  It's the turn of our fabulous Aunty Sue this week to host and our theme is 'Anything Goes' but if you would care to play along with Aunty Sue's optional twist this week it's 'Christmas in May' and we have an awesome sponsor this week too


prize...4 images of winners choice

The DT were very kindly given some images to play along with, I have used an image called Bug R Blocks.  I have recently acquired a Cricut Explore Air 2 and had a bit of a play.  Must say I am very impressed with it's capabilities, even after a very short play.  I have used it to cut the milk carton firstly in cs and then in the patterned paper.  I then took the image which comes as a block of 4 and after importing the image into the Cricut Design Space I printed it, the Cricut then scanned it and cut the blocks individually and perfectly, I certainly couldn't have done it so well by hand! lol I think I'm going to like this new machine!  Images are coloured using Chameleons and the box is closed with some ribbon.


This was such a fun project to make and I think there will be a few more of these made for the little gifts at Christmas.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Good morning it's my turn to host over at Crafty Catz this week and our theme is Anything Goes and I gave my fabulous teamies the twist of going Clean & Simple and boy oh boy have they worked their magic!  We are sponsored by the wonderful A Day For Dasies.

The DT were very kindly given some images to play along with and I have used 'Daisy Window' and decided to print the image directly onto some Kraft cs and colour it with my SN pencils and I found a lovely little sentiment stamp from PTI and used my Stamp-a-majig to get the position just right.  Love how this turned out.

Crafty Catz Challenge #412 - Anything Goes

Morning all, well as long as blogger is playing my card for this weeks challenge over at Crafty Catz is on time this week! lol. But before I tell you all about the challenge I would like to tell you that we are looking for a Guest Designer for MAY 2018 so if you are interested please add GDT after your name when you enter your card into this week´s challenge.

Anyway our host this week is our fabulous Helen and the theme is 'Anything Goes' and Helen gave the DT the added twist of using our favourite colour combo, nice and easy if you can pick just one combo! lol  We have an awesome sponsor this week to



prize info 3 digital images.

For my card I have used the adorable 'Camariere!' and just one of my favourite combos which is brown & blue, papers are all from the Cosmopolitan range from Making Memories.  The image is coloured with a mix of Chameleons and Copics with a hint of white gel pen. Various die cuts, Prima Got Flowers and gems and I finished off with a PTI stamped sentiment.  Now I'm hopeless when it comes to lining stamps up properly and I was given a Stamp-a-majig a while back and it has sat on my desk as I didn't have a clue how to use it, so I went looking on good ole YouTube and found lots of demos and it's now one of my favourite tools, it's so clever and I'm wondering why I just sat looking at it baffled for so long! lol It certainly helped me with the placement of this sentiment.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Inspiration Destination #148 ~ ATG (optional twist Real Stamp - sentiment is a real stamp)
The Paper Shelter #334 ~ Flowers
Crafty Creations #364 ~ ATG
