Evening everyone. I've been busy this evening and have made 3 cards. I think its because I've had a lovely day out today meeting up with the lovely Linda aka Boots from Scotland who is a member of our Yahoo Group. I came home buzzing, got loadsa stuff done indoors and then got busy crafting and I still don't feel ready for bed. No doubt I won't be able to get up in the morning when I need to for a crafting day at Art From The Heart.
Anyway, to my first card which I have really enjoyed making. I just love the way the colours have come together.
I've used the new Pixie Cottage sketch challenge as the baseline and incorporated their optional extra of embossing by using one of my new cuttlebug border embossing folders on the check DP.
Crafts and Me have just launched their first challenge which was Fairies or Wings and I love this little digital image from Mo Manning which I've coloured with copics. I've added a little bit of sparkle to the cupcake. Incidentally Totally Papercrafts (#10) are challenging us to use a digital image so this fits in nicely with the theme.
Finally, Simon Says is challenging us to make a card for a child.
The pink flowers and brads are from my stash as is the DP which is HOTP. The white flowers and pearls are from Wild Orchid Crafts, and the leaves are a McGill punch which I got from the Hobby House stand at the NEC along with the mint green pearls.
I hope you like it and the challenge links are below, x
- cockney blonde
- My name's Alison but for reasons too long to go into I'm known as Cockney Blonde or CB for short. I've been rubber stamping for several years but now spend most of my time either knitting or crocheting. However, with the advent of a New Year I have bitten the bullet and am tackling my usually hated pastime of sewing. I've even bought 'Sewing for Dummies' to guide me on my way. I've been with my hubby Dave for 24 years and between us we have 4 kids and 5 grandkids. We also have 2 cats and a dog, the latter features as my 'photo' image. I used to be able to blog daily but these days I struggle to blog weekly. Hopefully now we are settled into our new home in the country, I can get back to a daily (well almost) update from the room I now have to share with hubby. No more personal crafting space for me!!! Thanks to all the blogs and sites I follow for all your brilliant inspiration, and thank you to everyone who finds the time to comment on my blog.
