Hi everyone,  for the next week at MTTC, My Time To Craft, our challenge is - Umbrellas.
The design team have some wonderful inspiration for you, please pop over to see them.  I apologise for my card being so simple, but sometimes we do need a quick suitable card.  This is literally a click and print card adding  three pink pearl gems. I printed the main image from Crafter's Companion  - Moonbeam Meadow CD. the spotted background paper from my printed stash.  Not sure this warrants me saying I created/designed the card, it has an umbrella and I think it's cute, so I hope you like it.

E - Eye -Catching Edges

Hi again, it is time again to visit Alphabet Challenges, the letter for the next two weeks is E. Silvi has chosen for us Eye -Catching Edges.  Isn't that a good one? Please pop over to see what the DT have created to inspire you.  My card already has eye ctching edges with the scalloped edges, so I brought my edge in around the stamped matted imge, which I believe is a Little Claire stamp, I apologise if not. I drew squiggley lines and added a stamped bird in opposite corners. Of course now it is time to post I realise I could have done better with the lines. Have fun with this one.

Ribbons and Buttons

Hello everyone, here at Sparkles Monthly challenges for the next month we would like to see some #67 Ribbons and Buttons. Please pop over to see how the DT have created their fabulous inspirational projects.  I have lots of paper pads, I love them, I stroke them and admire them, but you have to sometime decide you just have got to use them. This  Black and White Back to Basics Dovecraft pad is just one of them. The stamped image is from Little Claire. My embellishments are a doiley, black lace, 3 heart buttons and a single white paper rose.  I do hope you have fun with this one. I was saddened when Shaz the owner decided to close this challenge blog, so sad, that I am now so pleased to report it will not be closing for I am now the new owner. Smiles all round.

CAS at Ruby's Rainbow

For the next two weeks at Ruby's Rainbow we are challenging you to be Clean and Simple. Please pop over to the blog for details and of course to check out the wonderful DT inspiration. My card is so simple, yet I do think it will help the recipient to smile. The stamped image is another of the adorable  stamps from Little Claire, I used Promarkers to add the colour. The sentiment is from Hobby Art Ltd. I added the two together with a hand drawn wiggly line. Have fun and stay well.
