Easter Theme challenge 153

Hi again,
This time around it is my turn to choose our theme to play along to over at and I have chossen Easter. Now I know it is simillar to one a few weeks ago but we never know what each one will choose but for this challenge I'd like you to add either a cross, a bunny rabbit (or two)  eggs or a chicken.

This is my card, I wanted it to be nice and bright which I think it is. I chose this cute image to colour in usin the colours I had choseen in my papers. I did lots of layers on this card using 5 different papers along with 6 different dies, Oh what fun I had. I love that Verve hole die at the top along with the little flower die too. Ribbon is from my stash and I printed the sentiment out from my PC.

Please join in with us on this challenge, I feel it will be fun.

St Patrick's Day

Design team sister Glenda has come up with the theme St Patrick's Day for us to play along to this time around over at So of course your card or project must have at least one of the following on it. A pot of gold, a leprechaun or a 4 leaf clover. Now thats not too hard is it!

Here is what I have come up with. It is a sweet treat box. My good friend Sandy sent me in the post some little boxes so I set about making the wrap around out of some glittery paper I had. I cut out shapes on all 4 sides so you could peek the "gold" at the end of the rainbow lol. I had to hand cut the clovers as I had none and attached them to the tab top, I also added the Good Luck sentiment too.

Hope you have fun with this challenge.

Welcome Spring. Challenge 151

Hello There,
This time around over at it is design team sister Peachy's turn to choose the theme we all play along to. This time it is Welcome Spring. Your card or project must have a spring theme to it.

Here is mine, it's a 5x7 tent fold card this time around.

On this card I used lots of scraps I had in my box which were too good to throw out. The first went down flat and then I embossed the plaid with a ditsy flower and the arrow paper with a hounds tooth folder. Spellbinders have been used also. I coloured in my image using Promarker pens and fussy cut her out. I thought the twine was a good addition to pull it all together. The cute flowers and sprightly sprigs are a favourite of mine at the moment.

Now its your turn to join in with this fun challenge.

Challenge 150 Cherry Pie Day

Hello there again,
This time over at design team sister Sarah has chosen the theme of Cherry Pie for us to play along to. Now she did say it didn't have to have a pie on it, it could just have a cherry somewhere on your card or project but I've gone one stage back and I hope she will be OK with me I have cherry blossom on mine.

I made this 6x6 card for my friend who likes beautiful pattern clothing. I used papers from my stash which I have had for a while. The first layer is down flat then I lifted the second on foam pads. The paper is from a oriental paper pad by Docrafts from quite a while back. The Kimono is a peel off I have had for years which I layed on to a sheet of DCWV oriental paper and cut around. The sentiment is made up of stickers from where I don't know but I have kept them for just that certain moment (you know how that is right ?). I added the corner peel offs to bring it together.

Now its your turn to join in. We had such a fab turnout for the last challenge lets do it again.

Sweetheart Time

Happy Saturday,
Over at it is my good friend Sandy's turn to choose the theme for the next two weeks. This time she is getting us ready for Valentine's by asking us to create a card or project which MUST include at least one heart.

Now I haven't made a Valentine's card but a birthday card which I was asked to make by a friends husband so I am hoping Sandy will let me have this one. As you can see there are hearts on it. The  banner strip has paper with hearts on as does the bunting and there is another soft pink one under the flowers.
Both the ditsy flower paper and the stripe paper are embossed to give texture. I pleated the pink satin ribbon myself then topped with lace which I ran the twine around before attaching it to the card. As you can see everything is matted on brown paper to give the card warmth and age it a little. The leaves are cut using Verve's Sprightly Sprigs die which I recently bought and the flowers and pearls are from my stash.
The card is a 7x7 tent fold. Now please pop over to see what the other girls have made and then join in with the fun.


Hi, so sorry but Blogger won't allow me to load my photo for some reason, pulling my hair out right now.

My Sheri Crafts first of the year

Hello again,

Well its that time again, yes the challenges have started over at this year we open with a challenge from our leader Sheri herself.  Its so nice when she gets time to join in with us all.
Her challenge to us this time is to make a card which includes a snowflake or two. Now it hasn't got to be a Christmas card but I thought what the heck I'll get a head start so here is what I came up with.

This card uses a wonderful stamp I purchased last year just simply stamped in cranberry ink. I added one of my gifted snowflake diecuts to the edge. I just love that pom pom trim don't you?  A little heart button, gems and a Believe stamp and finished.

This card uses Kaisercraft papers and a Tim Holtz  Big Die. I trimmed the right edge of the card and placed red down on the back edge so it could be seen to draw your eye to the red in the berries.
The robin and sentiment are on one strip of paper which I cut up. I raised the robin and extra holly leaves and placed over the edge of the sentiment. The holly boarder strips are the bits at the bottom of a Kaisercraft sheet of paper (I keep all of mine) you never know when you need that little something to finish off a edge. Then I added the snow flakes. This card has a great feel and would be good for a guy I think, well my hubby liked it so that's always a good sign  lol.  Both cards are 6x6.
Please join in with all the fun and check out what all the other girls have made.
Happy New Year

A little gold goes along way

Hello and Happy New Year,
Just thought I'd share this Golden Wedding card I made this weekend for an order.
I wanted to try out my rectangle die set by Spellbinders on this card. But first I picked out some gold material from my stash which I frayed the edges and stitched to the card. I then ran another sheet of paper through a embossing folder and stitched that to the card too but only on the corners. I cut the rectangle out of a sheet of Kaisercraft paper and mounted it on to gold mirri card which I lifted off the card with foam pads.
I printed out the sentiment and placed it under the next cut of gold. As you can see I put a length of satin ribbon under first and made a small bow too. The leaves are from Sprightly Sprigs die set from Verve and the cream roses are from my stash.
Thanks for stopping by and come back on Saturday when we kick start our My Sheri Crafts cards.
