Evening everyone,

I have been having a mooch around some of the other blogs today and have found two challenges I fancy entering.  So I have made this card which I am going to enter into them.

It has a slightly retro feel to it.  

I have coloured the Gorjuss image with promarkers - Cool Grey 3, Sandstone, Canary, Satin, Bright Orange, Lime, Honeycombe, Henna, Ivory, Black and Baby Pink.  I cut the circles using my Nesties and the ribbon is from Stamping Up.  The papers were a birthday present.

The challenges I am entering this into are:

  2. totallygorjuss. challenge-93-round-and-round.

My first blog challenge - here goes nothing ............

Well I've read the instructions on how to do this and have found a challenge to enter.

I've made the card and hopefully will manage to link to it.

This is my card.  It's for the LOTV challenge - Thank you.

I coloured my LOTV image with promarkers - colours used are
Soft Peach, Pastel Yellow, Rose Pink, Pastel Blue,Moss, Vanilla, Ivory and Baby pink
I made my flower using the Tim Holtz Tattered florals die, together with a Papermania flower and a small pink sequin.  The lace edge is made using an X-Cut Border Die. The background was coloured with Dovecraft chalks - pastels and shimmers. The paper was a present from a friend.

Sunday's crafty makes

Hi everyone and thank you for looking at my blog.  

It's been lovely here today, have had a great day, out to lunch with the out-laws, a gentle stroll along the canal - not too far mind and in between some lovely peaceful crafting.  Below is what I have come up with today.  

LOTV card.  This was a challenge I set on the Docrafts forum.  The theme - I love you, colour white on white with a ribbon, a bow and three embelishments.  I have made my flowers using my new Tim Holtz Tattered Florals die and some stickies glitter glue.  Great Fun.  The image was coloured with Promarkers.

This is a childs birthday card.  I used my x-cute nesting die to cut out the balloons and the party image.  The papers were from the Birthday goodie bag bag in April.

 Birthday Girl and Happy Birthday cards . Again these papers were from the Birthday Goody Bag in April.  The design is for the Monday Sketch Challenge on the Docrafts Forum.  The balloons were cut and embossed with my Nesties and the tag is stamped with a LOTV image.

The tatty ted image is has been framed using a nestie die and then mounted onto tatty ted papers.  Hougie Board flowers made and adhered along with card candy and a ribbon.  The backing paper is Hunkydory.
The sentiment is Tulip.

Thanks for taking the time to look. x
