Please make sure you read the rules, and are a follower otherwise you will not be in with a chance to win.

As always the theme is: ANYTHING GOES -

I chose 
Vintage Poppy SKU 0046
thought it was apt with Rememberance Day coming up


I began with an 8 x 8 card blank and embossed it with the Die'sire Embossalicious Folder EF8-RG Swirl.  I stamped the image with Memento and coloured it with Tim Holtz distress pens, and then cut it out with Spellbinders Radiant Rectangles die.  The ribbon is from Creative Expressions and the Sentiment was done on my laptop and cut out with the smallest  die from the above set of dies.

We look forward to seeing your entries .................... Good luck

Good morning and welcome to another challenge over at:


Thank you to everyone who took part last time, all the entries were fabulous.  There has been a slight change in the rules and prizes, so please make sure you read them.

Using the Vintage Lady Card Kit

I started with an 8 x8 card and used backing paper from Graphic 45's Ladies Diary Paper pad.  I used burgundy ribbon from my stash and then backed the Vintage Lady image with gold mirri board.  The little postcard which is also backed onto gold mirri board is from Stamps Away Vintage Collection - Birthdays.  I used the Tattered Lace Lily of the Valley die, chopped off the flourish from the bottom, and then cut out the vase from the second postcard, to match. The stems were coloured with Promarkers and  I finished the card by attaching three little gems from my stash.

We look forward to seeing your creations, have fun, and good luck

Buttons and Bows Challenge at Just for fun

Hi, and welcome to everyone to our Buttons and Bows challege, over at:

Thank you so much to everyone that entered last month, they were all brilliant.
Here's what I cam up with as part of the DT:

I embossed the card blank with That Special Touch buttons Mask, and then cut an aperture with a Spellbinders Die. I stamped the image onto some white card, coloured with Panpastels, and then cut it out with the same die.   The image is the Together Forever stamp set from Crafter's Companion which I coloured with my Promarkers.  The little buttons I made using a mold and air dry clay, and the little hearts were originally white which I again coloured with my Promarkers.  I stamped the sentiment and cut it out using another Spellbinder die and coloured the background with Panpastels.  I finally added the bows with ribbon from my stash

The prize this month which has been donated by one of our DT members Sue,  is:


The score buddy and the Paw Prints Stamp set
