No Digi's....

.... This was a challenge just in itself! I pretty use a digi for every single card!
But, as it happened I was asked to make a Wedding Card.
So no digi's for the Charisma Cardz challenge, here is the card...
A mixture of text, flowers, hearts & pearls.
Wasn't so sure of all the white at first, but it's turned out okay. The dark card is actually navy too.
Here's a few more pics:

I decorated the box the same but forgot to a pic! Clever as always ;)


Hello peeps!
Blogger will still not upload pics using Firefox. Good job I have Explorer.
So onto this post. I'm entering this card into 2 challenges.
full card
 So the challenges:
1. Crafty Cardmakers - Pick Three Different Techniques.
I have used Paper Piecing, Distressing & Making Your Own Flowers
2. Fab 'n' Funky - Favourite Embellishment - Bows (I use them on EVERYTHING!)
Image & paper piecing

Favourite Embellishment - Bow!

I do love this little girly with her heart.



Last post from me, I think I'm all crafted out!
This is something completely different from me. Although I do like white on white cards.

The sentiment, I printed off the computer. The sentiment needed to be the main focus but I felt it looked plain without a bit of detail.
The 2 challenges I'm entering this card into are:
1. My Time To Craft - Sentiment as the main focus
2. The Sweet Stop - Sketch SSS209
That's it, I'm done!


I do love the "monochromatic" challenges.
This time it's the challenge over at Splendid Stamping. I've chosen to use pink. My least favourite colour mind! Although I think you tend to use your least favourite colour a lot.
The layout is from the challenge over at Cupcake crafts.

Something quite simple but effective I think. My mate would love this. She loves pink!
The 2 challenges I'm entering this card into are:
1. Splendid Stamping, FFF - Monochromatic!
2. Cupcake Craft - Sketch  
Another post to do then I'm done for the day.

April Showers

These should be called May showers this year that's how late they are!
Anyways, as the saying goes "April Showers bring May Flowers..."
So here's my take on this saying:
Rainy days or Sunny rays
That's not the greatest picture to be honest.
The fence die I've had for ages and never really used it, until now. I need a grass die to go behind it though I think. The dotty embossing folder always comes in handy! Think that's my oldest piece of equipment. One of the first things I brought all those years ago. The sentiment, I made on the pc. It's hard thinking of sentiments to put on the front of cards rather than "happy birthday"

 The image is a Some Odd Girl. I genuinely LOVE these images. Something fit for every occasion.

I'm entering this into the following challenges:
1. Crafty Cardmakers
2. Oldie but A Goodie
Off to make a mess!


They ain't as scary as they look! :)
Not this couple anyways... love this Tiddly Inks image, perfect for their challenge, mine falls under both. Plus it falls in to the challenge on the Crafty Catz blog too.
So as in the title, my theme is Vampires. I'm entering this post into 3 challenges:
1. Friday Sketch - Sketch #42
2. Tiddly Inks - Movie and/or Book theme
3. Crafty Catz - Inspired by a Song
4. 2 Sisters - Bingo Bash
So, my "movie/book" is of course Twilight and my song is "All You Need Is Love" by The Beatles.
I did also have "Vampires Will Never Hurt You" by My Chemical Romance. And I've used Embossing, Image & flowers from the bingo board.
Flower Detail

The sketch on Friday Sketch is fab. Will def be using this again.

Shaped card

So, my blog has decided that it won't allow me to upload any pictures. How very rude of it. So, it seems to be working now and there will be a few posts for me..

First up, 1 challenge for "flower power" and 2 challenges for "shaped cards". I've used a bracket card but cut the straight edge. I don't like one edge being straight, what's that all about?! 

Anyway, the card:

I have gone a bit OTT on the flowers! LOL The image is from Saturated Canary. I must admit, I didn't like these to start with but now I love them! Much prefer digi's to stamps as well.

Here's a few close ups:


The 2 challenges I'm entering this card into are:

1. Charisma Cardz
2. Totally Papercrafts
3. One Stop Crafts - Flower Power

Off to write up a few more posts.
