Crafty Catz #246 ~ Clean & Simple

Good morning, good morning, good morning, (well I hope it's a good one, this is a sheduled post! lol)  Anyway over at Crafty Catz it is time for a brand new challenge and this week it was my turn to pick the theme and I went with 'Clean & Simple', this is a style that sometimes I struggle with and sometimes it just comes together and this week it was a come together but before I show you what I did let me tell you what the fabulous prizes are ... 
PRIZE.....3 digis of their choice. 


 a $10 gift certificate to spend at the Make it Crafty store

So for my card I tried something a little bit different but got the idea after colouring directly on to some Kraft cs the other day only this time I printed onto some dark green cs the same as my card base and place a layer of white cs between the 2, then I coloured the image using my spectrum pencils and blending fluid and then finished off with a stamp and white ink.

Anything Goes with Divas

Good morning, time for everyone's favourite challenge over at Divas by Design, 'Anything Goes' and this week we are sponsored by
and as it's the 10th I can share my card with you as I made it for my mums birthday which was yesterday (hope it arrived in time!).  Now I was really struggling for how I was going to out do the last card I sent her and I was struggling so much I finally decided to take it back a notch and make a C&S card that I hope is elegant too.  So I started with the lovely bird cage die cut which was sent to me by a friend, then I needed to find a bird to fit it and after lots of cutting and resizing I settled upon this one cut with the Cricut.  Cut it in several colours too as I couldn't decide which one I liked best and also hadn't decided what background I was going to used.  So while I was busy pushing bits of paper around my desk the cage ended up on a white card blank and I really liked the effect then the bird came next, after that the embossed lines, Cricut cut Mum and pearls just fell into place and I love how it turned out, hope Mum does too. 

I even decorated the inside using a quote I have seen recently while blog hopping, printed on the pc in a colour to match the bird, more embossed lines and final edging using a spectrum pen.

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

Spots and/or Stripes with Crafty Sentiments

Good morning and it's time for a brand new challenge over at Crafty Sentiments and this week we'd love to see your 'spots and/or stripes' and we have an adorable stamp up for grabs for the randomly chosen winner.  Check her out ...

So for my card this week I used one of my all time favourite Crafty Sentiments stamps 'Spring Breezy' which is available in the Crafty Sentiments Designs store and I've coloured her up with my spectrums.  The paper is from Bearly Mine Designs and the oval and flourishes are already in place all I did was add my stamped image (by masking) added some rolled black flowers and the sentiment which is a Crafty Sentiment stamp on a Crafty Cutters from Crafty Sentiments die and finished off with 2 little spotty brads and some inking round the edge.  Even my MIL who doesn't like black flowers was impressed! lol  I really like how it turned out.

Crafty Cats #245 ~ One for the Boys

Good morning, the Crafty Catz are back this week after our 2 week break and our wonderful Christine has chosen the theme of 'One for the Boys' and as always we have a super sponsor this week it is 
prize...7 images of winners choice
The DT have worked their magic and come up with lots of fabulous inspiration for you so be sure to check them out.  I have used the awesome Bugaboo image 'Rock Kid' for my project this week and thought I'd make a banner instead of a card, the back is blank so a message can be added if I need one at a later date.  The banner is cut on the Cricut and then I have added various die cuts and the sentiment is cut on the Cricut.  I have used a large wooden food skewer and the post.  Had lots of fun making this and love how it turned out.

Crazy Challenge #179 ~ Three of a kind, arrows
