A moment of laughter Challenge 131


Now this is a good one, over at www.myshericrafts this time design team sister Charlotte has asked us to make a card or project with some laughter on/in it.
Well I really had to put on my thinking cap for this one and then I remembered Sandy had sent me an image she had found on a free page.

My friend in works husband is going in to hospital for a new knee and you know how those gowns fit. So I made him this.

Look how his butt is slightly lighter as it never sees the light of day (I hope). The papers are from Hot Off The Press a few years ago. I added a couple of safety pins just for fun.
Now its your turn to think funny and join in.

My Sheri Crafts Challenge 130

Hello Again,
Over at it is design sister Sarah's turn to choose the challenge for us and she has come up with a cracker.."anything but a card for Easter".

For this I have made a little basket to house some naughty little eggs.

I picked up this basket in a local store wrapped a Easter ribbon around the lip and made a couple of bows. I covered the handle with orange gingham ribbon too. The bunny in the back I coloured using my Pro Markers picking up the colours of the foil on the eggs and the ribbon.
I added some lovely blooms to the mix  too. Now I just have to wait for Easter so I can make a start!!
Now it is your turn to make something and link up.
Here is a shot taken from the top um umm.

Challenge 129

Today over at it is design team sister Raquel's turn to set the challenge and so this time she would like us to create a project with a spring flower on it.

Now I don't have any actual stamps with what could be called "spring flowers" on them so I decided to make my card using a little stamp I have had in my stash for a while along with this ever so cute little girl in a plant pot stamp my dear friend Sandy sent me.

I have been loving the boarders available to go around the edge of a card, but as I don't own any yet I made my own.
The card is a 6x6 easel and I have used this stripe paper from my stash which I ran though my GC first. The image is coloured in with my Pro Marker pens as are the little flowers.  I just have to add a sentiment maybe Happy Spring Time or Popping Up to Say.
Now it is your turn to think Spring Flowers and join in.
Oh this is what happens when the nets get in on the action

Bring on the Bling....

Hello there,
Over at design team member Peachy has asked us to make a card or project utilizing as much bling as you can muster lol to celebrate Jewel Day on 13 March. So it is time to bring out your glitter, jewels cosmic shimmer you name it bring it out to play.

For this challenge I chose to make this card.

The card is a 5x7 and I have used Kaisercraft papers which are double sided so you are always going to match up colours. I embossed the back paper using tied together folder. I used a SB to cut away the edge of the top layer and wrapped around a little cream lace. the sentiment is one big stamp and I inked the edge with a pale blue embossing ink and added the holographic powder. I used the cut offs to add to its edge.
The huge rose I added glitter to and a touch of stickles to the leaves. The clear gems I added to the points and just for double measure I added the shiniest butterfly I could.
Right now it is your turn to join in the fun and link up your master piece but remember it is for jewel day so think like a magpie!

Vintage Guy Card

Hello again,
Today over at it is my turn to pick the theme and I chose vintage guy card which must include some inking on it.

This card is for an order for a young man turning 18 who likes the cinema. I chose to make a large A5 card this time.

As you can see the card blank is deep red which reminded me of the old cinema seats which were quite plush. The ticket paper is from MME which I embossed and then distressed and then inked with Fire Brick and Black Soot. The black striped paper is from HOTP and it has been in my stash for years. The images are from Kaisercraft as are the two stamps I have used. I printed out sentiment myself. For a little throw back the Live Life stamp is matted on to red velvet paper.
Thanks for stopping by today, now take a peek at the other girls creations and then join in.
