Creative Craft Challenge - Fancy Edges

It's been a couple of weeks since I've made a card, but my excuse is I've been busy making 14 "Thriller" costumes for my Brownies for their item in the West Bromwich Girlguiding Gang Show, and with dress rehearsals, and then three performances, it's been a busy couple of weeks.

But it's all over now so things are starting to get back to normal.  So it's time for a new challenge over at Creative Craft Challenges today and the theme for this fortnight is "Fancy Edges".

For my card I've used the Whiff of Joy stamp "Ice Skating Henry Mouse" coloured with copics.  The DP's are from the Penelope & Percy paper pack.  The fancy edges are made using a Martha Stewart snowflake border punch.

We are sponsored for this challenge by Whiff Of Joy.

Now I'm off to book my tickets for next weeks Hobbycraft at the NEC.  It's been years since I've been to one of the Christmas shows so have decided it was about time I went.  So by next Thursday my crafty stash may have grown a little (or possibly a lot).

Creative Craft Challenge - Congratulations

How amazing is this, it's our 2nd anniversary over at Creative Craft Challenges so congratulations are in order.
So because it's our anniversary it seems only fitting that the theme for this fortnights challenge is "CONGRATULATIONS".
Amazingly I have made two cards for this challenge using images from two of our sponsors (not quite sure how I managed that.  I just couldn't get the the images to print correctly, and when I'd sorted that I ran out of ink so then at 8.45pm last night there was a mad dash out of the house to get to the nearest Staples store).

For the first card I have used an image by Meljen's Designs called "Birthday Bee" coloured with copics.  The DP's are a mixture of different ranges from my stash.

The second card if using an image from The Stamping Boutique called "Snowman Sign" coloured with copics.  The DP's are from the Wild Rose Studio Christmas paper pack.

Because it's a special occasion we have lots of sponsors and some really fab prizes on offer this fortnight.

Be sure to pop over to Creative Craft Challenges to check out all of the other DT cards and the gorgeous prizes on offer.

Crafty Calendar October Challenge - Spooky

I can't believe it's the 1st October already.  Isn't the unseasonal weather gorgeous.   I got back late last night from a weeks holiday in Torquay, I should have packed more t-shirts and less woolly jumpers.  So now I'm all refreshed and revitalised (I wish), I could do with another holiday to get over it.

Anyway another early post as I'm heading off to work in a little while.  This months challenge over at Crafty Calender is my choice so I decided on "Spooky".  So get those Halloween colours out.

For my card I couldn't decide which image to use so decided to use both of them.  I have used a digi image by Make it Crafty called "Haunted Halloween House" and "Batty Princess" from Kraftin Kimmie.  Both have been coloured with copics.  The DP's were free with this months issue of Making Cards magazine.

We are sponsored for this challenge by Wild Orchid Crafts.
