 Hello and welcome to my blog. Today we begin a new challenge at Make My Monday. Johanna  has chosen #220 Fun Folds - any theme. To see the design team's inspiration please visit the blog.

For my Fun Fold, with the aid of a single stepper template I created this simple fun fold card. I used a sheet of mat-tastic Hunkydory claret card. All the pattern papers are from a Dreamees Velvet Whisper paper pad. The cat topper is from a pack of Dreamees Curious Cats Set 1.The sentiment I found in my stash.

X is for X-tra Hearts


 Hello and welcome to my blog. Today at Alphabet Challenges I have chosen X is for X-tra Hearts. I know Valentine's Day has past us by, but we all have someone we love, who would be happy to receive a card with lots of hearts on it. To see more, the design team have many for you, so please visit the blog. 

I began with a 5 x 7 " embossed card, I die cut 7 hearts, then added them to the edge of the card. I then added the die cut word 'love' and stamped the word 'you'. The 'you' was part of a stamp in my stash.  I don't normally make CAS cards but sometimes I like to shake it up and be different. Take care. Happy crafting.

Seascape


Hello, welcome to my blog. Today at Cardz 4 Galz we begin a new challenge. Johanna has chosen 
#219 Seascape. To see the wonderful inspiration from the design team, please visit the blog. 
I used a 6 x 4 " (A6) white card. I die cut a circle from a piece of  A6 white card, I then applied the various Distress Inks through the aperture to create the sea and sky .I drew in a few birds, my only true artistic drawing skill. I then removed the piece of card with the aperture, revealing my seascape. I then added a stamped, coloured and fussy cut galleon, for the wonderful but no longer available Tandastamps.  The sentiment is from my stash.

Hearts and Flowers


Hello and welcome to my blog. I've been having a few computer issues recently, so haven't been blogging much. Fingers crossed, issues resolved now. Today we are starting a new challenge at Sparkles Monthly challenges, Dawn has chosen #173 Hearts and Flowers. To see the wonderful inspiration from the design team, please visit the blog. 

For my card, I began with a 5 x 7 white card. The paper used as a mat was with a number of free backing papers in a Chloe's boxed set -Volume 13. I used a white piece of card, I added a very thin double sided tape around the edges, dipped them into white glitter to create the sparkly white edged card. the next layer is a piece of Hunkydory  pale blue card. The flowers were created with the free 3 piece flower die set, also free with the boxed set, 3 die cut hearts from my die cut stash. The sentiment from the stamp set in the same box set. This is not my usual style but I like to step out of my comfort zone, now and again. I hope you like my experiment,.
