Two Challenges - One Project

Today I managed to combine challenges. Over on Something Completely Different, this weeks challenge is to create a tag, and the theme is 'Crowns'. I've had this chipboard crown for ages, I covered it with 3 bugs papers and added a few embellishments. This weeks DCM challenge is to make a card with a sick child in mind. They have linked up with the charity Post Pals, an organisation that was set up to create smiles for children who suffer from life threatening and long term illnesses. The idea is to post the card to one of the children featured on the home page of Post Pals. Life seems to be throwing me lemons at the moment, but after reading these childrens' moving stories, I realise how lucky I am. Here's the card I made for Amy P.

Challenge 6 Something Completely Different

This week on SDC the theme for June is tags and the topic is Home. Mine is more of a topper than a tag, but anyway, I hand drew a smaller version of a mushroom template I had, and used Imaginisce papers to cover it - I thought the red spotty paper was ideal for a toadstool. Pop over to the SCD Challegne blog to see some really inspiring DT samples. x

Fathers Day

Here's a few Fathers Day cards I made recently. The one of the man in the chair is from a template in a magazine. The little trees was stamped at my craft club and coloured with Marveys.

Challenge Sunday

I managed to get a couple of challenges done this weekend. First over at Something Completely Different this weeks task is to make a tag with a Stars & Stripes theme. I love making tags, so thanks to all at SCD for making June tag month. And here it is using 3 Bugs paper and a footie sticker

OK next up is Penny Black Saturdayand this weeks theme is 'Blooming Gorgeous'. I could have gone completely OTT as primas are one of my favourite things, up there with Chocolate and Johny Depp. Anyway I used an image that I won (Blog candy) and coloured it with copics and added only 3 glittered flowers.

Holiday Journal

This week I've done very little crafting due to among other things, having my email hacked into and dealing with the aftermath. I wouldnt have believed how much hassle its caused. Anyway, I finished a BIA project I've been working on, and it fits in with this weeks challenge on Caardvarks which is to create a 3D paper crafting project. Its a travel journal for a friend who loves her holidays. The papers are Summer Cool by Imaginisce I've embellished it with bits & pieces from my stash.
