Daring Cardmakers - Supersize Me

This weeks challenge at DCM set by Lythan, is to use a large embellishment so, out came my big bloomers! I feel they both need somehting else but I was a bit clueless, everything else I added just looked wrong. Where's the mojo fairy when you need her?

And finally, a New Home card that I made using a template bought from the craft show last weekend

Basic Grey Challenge #31

I've not done much crafting this week as the weather's been so nice and I've been outdoors, but I was itching to use my new stash from the Ally Pally Show, so......This week the theme over at BG is paper piecing - I actually managed 2 cards. The first is using the in your face Lime Rickey papers and the second was using the Eva collection

This next item is something I made for my forum buddy Sarn - I can show it now as her birthday was yesterday. The photo is pants, lighting all wrong, but anyway, as she is know as chocoholic, I knew I had to put that on the front of the BIA notepad.

Penny Black Saturday

This week I've not had much time to craft as we've been busy over Easter. Anyway, I made this last night for the PB Challenge. We had to create a gift - bag/box/candle/tin, as long as it included at least 1 PB image. I decided to make some notelets in a folder using the flower stamp again. Very simple really - I used a peice of 12 x 12 double sided card folded, stamped and glittered the image onto the cards and added some ribbon.

Finally - I went to see Marley & Me. Such a lovely film but if you are thinking of going, remember the kleenex.

Basic Grey Challenge #29

This weeks Basic Grey Challenge was to create a card with an Easter or Spring theme.The stamp is by Penny Black and I used papers from the Urban Prairie collection. I realise now that I forgot to glitter the flower but I was rushing to finish last night before 'The Apprentice' and now I have to get off to work.

Party time at TYI

Happy birthday to TYI - 1 year old this week. So to celebrate, the theme is 'Happy Birthday' and each DT member has parcelled up some goodies to be given away to a lucky winner.
For my tag I used BG Blush paper, and lots of bits & bobs from my stash - the cake is a sticker I got in a bargain bucket at Hobbycraft, and the butterfly charm is from a bracelet I got from Primark!

DCM Challenge - Feeling Fruity

This weeks Dare on DCM is to make a card with a peice of fruit on it. This is my kind of challenge as it gives me an excuse to use my K&Co Berry Sweet Collection so I went a bit mad and made 3 - sorry about the puns, I just couldnt help myself. When I did the last card, I realised I'd made a mistake as the fold was at the bottom - aaaargghh - I hate it when that happens. Anyway I have now decided to use it as a BIA cover for a photo album with pics of me & himself inside, and thats why the left hand side doesnt have any flowers on it, so that theres room for the BIA rings.
