Creative Craft Challenge - Anything but a card

It's been a long time, but I think Spring has finally arrived.  No more dark mornings, the evenings are getting lighter and the sun is shining.

It's time for a new challenge over at Creative Craft Challenge and the theme for this fortnight is "ANYTHING BUT A CARD".

After a lot of pondering I finally decided on a recipe box, it didn't turn out too bad, now all I have to do is convert all those scraps of paper that I have dotted around the house into recipe cards....what was I thinking!

Magnolia Mothers Day Card

My weeks holiday is nearly over.....I can't believe it.....it's flying by so quickly.  I made myself a list of jobs I had to get done, the list is complete so now I've got time to relax before I go back to work.  One of the items on the list was to make a Mother's Day card for my Grandma which I thought I'd share.

For this card I used:
Magnolia Butterfly Dreams stamp - Tilda with Butterfly Dress coloured with copics
DP - Dovecraft Tea Party paper pack
Sentiment - Elzybells

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

Oldie But a Goodie - Mums the word (The stamps, flowers and pearls are over 6 months old)
Papertake Weekly - For the Girls (or mum)
7 Kids College Fund - Anything Goes
Crafty Catz - Mothers Day
Paper Sundaes - Feminine Flair

Creative Craft Challenge - Inspirational Picture Challenge

Morning all.  I'm on a weeks holiday from work so my challenge post is a little earlier than usual.  I did make lots of plans to catch up this week on all those jobs that I've been putting off.....then again I might just put them off a bit longer and do a bit of crafting instead...

It's time for a new challenge over at Creative Craft Challenge and this fortnight we have something different for you that we've never tried before...AN INSPIRATIONAL PICTURE challenge.

For my card I have used:
Digital image from Pollycraft - Cherry Kisses "Whatever" coloured with copics.
DP's are a magazine freebie from Craftwork Cards.

Here is our picture inspiration and for my card I sort of focused on the top right image with the pick and blue stars.   

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:

Crafty Calender Challenge - Spring Clean..

It's the first Saturday of the month so that means there's a new challenge over at Crafty Calender Challenge.

The theme for this month is "SPRING CLEAN" so it's time to get out all those unused stamps and forgotten stash.  We also have the optional extra of including handmade embellishments on your projects this month.
For my card I have used:
Magnolia stamp - Running Tilda
Sentiment - Elzybells
Marianne Design die - Flower Set
Marianne Design die - Ribbon Die 3

The image has been coloured with copics and the DP's are long forgotten stash...I don't even know what they are or even where I had them from...

The optional extra of a handmade embellishment is the flower in the corner...made using the Marianne Design dies.

We are sponsored for this challenge by The Artful Splodger.
