Christmas Hat

 Good Afternoon Peeps,

I have just been sat outside reading and thought I would take a break to enter the new Christmas Bingo Challenge, I made the card last weekend but haven't posted it yet, been too busy enjoying the sun this week.

For my card I used Column N on the bingo board (hand coloured image, die cuts and sequins).

My image is from Whimsy, I coloured with Copics, bp is by Spellbinders, circular die by Sue Wilson and snowflakes die by MFT.  I added some red sequins to the snowflakes and finished with  a stamped sentiment.

Christmas Bingo Challenge - Bingo board (15-06)
C.R.A.F.T. Challenge #679 - Christmas (08-06)
The Holly and the Ivy #140 - Anything Christmas (30-05)

Special Birthday

Good Morning Peeps

Hope everyone is keeping well and enjoying some sunshine.  I seem to have had a busy couple of weeks, not had much time for crafting or blogging, but today I am the host of our new challenge at Fab'n'Funky and for the next two weeks I have chosen the challenge of:

Special Birthdays

I made my card for my daughter Lorna's 50th birthday last week.  We had a family party with 17 of us at our village Italian Restaurant and everyone had a good time especially the birthday girl.

My stamp is from AALL & Create, and I coloured with Copics.  The backing paper is by My Favourite Things, I cut the image out with a Sue Wilson die and put a die around it by Tonic.  The flowers are cut with a Lisa Horton die with Nuvo Drops in the centre and I added some small hearts.  The sentiment is computer generated cut with an MFT die and I added a small 50.

There are some beautiful cards to inspire you on the challenge blog and we would love to see you joining in with us.

Enjoy your day!

Happy Easter

 Good Morning Peeps,
Hope everyone is well and has had some of the lovely sunshine we have had over the past few days, really makes me feel like summer is at last on the way.  I may not be around for a while after the Easter weekend as I am having another eye operation for my glaucoma on Tuesday so won’t be able to use my computer, but hopefully won’t be away too long.
Well the Fab'n'Funky Challenge is on it's way today and being hosted by our lovely Sue who has challenged us to:

Use Die Cuts

I decided to make an Easter card using a Whimsy stamp, coloured with Copics, I used an old Marianne die for stem and leaves and a tiny flower die by Sue Wilson and added a centre in Nuvo drops.  The papers are by Whimsy and finished with a stamped sentiment.

Enjoy your day!
