Baby boy



   The theme for the Crafty Cardmakers challenge this week is new beginnings. One of my nieces is expecting a new addition to her family later in the year so I have made two cards - one for a baby boy and one for a baby girl. I used several sheets of one design from Hunkydory's Little Book of Smudge and Mitten and decoupaged the image. I then added peel off sentiments which I had coloured using a permanent pen.

   I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
   Crafty Friends - new beginnings
   Everybody Art - anything goes
   Crafting When We Can - anything goes
   A Gem of a Challenge - celebrate something new
   Dream Valley - something new

Hot barbecue

   The anything goes challenge starting today at Crafting From the Heart is being sponsored by:





   I matted printed paper from my stash onto red mirri and white card. The image from Rick St. Dennis called Bertie was coloured it using Promarkers, Spectrum Noir pens and a silver gel pen, after which I cut it out using a Spellbinders grand scalloped oval die. I then ran a red pen around the edge. Using the same die I cut a piece of red mirri card and offset this behind the image. The best wishes was cut from white card using a Tattered Lace die and then coloured.

Thank you fairy

   I have used their digi image called Flora and after colouring it using Promarkers I fussy cut it out. The design paper is from Hunkydory's Twilight Kingdom set and I matted it onto black and then cream card and then attached the digi fairy to it. The thank you sentiment was cut out using a Tattered Lace charisma frames 1 die and I matted it onto black card cut out with the same die and slightly off centred. Finally I added Stickles to all the flowers and to the fairies wings.

Star flower girl



   The theme for the challenge at Creative Corner this week is anything goes and it is being sponsored by A Day For Daisies.
   I matted paper from Kanban Crafts 'The language of flowers' set which I have had for some time onto core'dinations cardstock and white card. The A Day For Daisies image is called Star flower girl and after colouring it using Spectrum Noir pens I cut it out using a Tattered Lace pearl circle die. I then added Stickles to the stars in her hair and on her dress and the grass before attaching it to the card. The sentiment was also matted onto core'dinations cardstock.
