Travel at MTTC

Hello, thanks for your visit. I hope you are well and safe. 
Today at My Time To Craft  new challenge has begun.
Monika has chosen Travel. 
It's so sad how this pandemic has had such a dreadful
 effect upon travel and tourism, during the summer, however,
the safety and well-being of us all has to be of the highest priority.
I have made a round scallop edged card.
All of the stamps are from a set called Around the World 
- free with Creative Stamping Issue #3.
I coloured the plane with Promarkers and a red pen.
Take care, be safe and thanks for your visit.

Clean and Simple

Hello everyone, I hope you are well and coping with the
Covid regulations., not to mention the new dreadful changes
made to Blogger.  Crafting is fun but these changes are
difficult to cope with, but for the sake of the crafting I will 
cope and just get on with it. Moan over.........
Today at Make My Monday we begin a new challenge
#128 Clean and Simple
Please check out the blog for details and to see the
inspirational cards by the design team. 
I used a 5" square card, I stamped LOTV - Playing Golf
onto white card, coloured with promarkers, cut it out,
leaving a small white border around the image. Adhered it
to the body of the card using 3d foam pads. I made a banner, 
stamped a greeting, added faux stitching.
Stay safe and well, thanks for your visit.

From Our House to Your House

Hello, thanks for your visit. I hope all is well with you.
Today we begin a new challenge at Sparkles Christmas Challenges.
#115 From Our House to Your House
Please check out the blog for details and to see the wonderful
inspiration created by the design team.
For my DL card, I created a night sky background by making
a  watercolour mix on my glass mat with DI Tumbled Glass and
Stormy Sky.  The white card was dipped into this mixture. When dried
I blended around the edges with DT Chipped Sapphire.
I stamped with Black Versafine using a Woodware stamp -
Winter Wondeerland.
I sprayed a light mist of a Moon Glow spray. Added some Stickles
for the stars.  Used a white Sakura Gellyroll pen for highlights and
snow. Created scene added to a navy blue mat onto the white card.
Stay safe and well, happy crafting.

Challenge #250 Get Well Wishes

Hello, I apologise for the delay, but hey have you 
got the New Updated version of Blogger yet? 
I have, and I have crawled my way through trying to
find how to use it. I kept remembering my grandmother
saying over and over to me, during life ....
..."If it ain't broken, why try to fix it?" ....
I know I have always been reluctant to accept changes,
but if I understand the reasons I always found it easier 
to either accept or rationalise it.
Moan over - back to the challenge, starting today 
at Cardz 4 Guyz #250 Get Well Wishes
Please visit the blog for details and to see the DT's
inspirational cards.
My card is a 5" sq. white card. Background paper from
my The Works stash.
The main feature is Dr. Toby a Crafty Sentiments stamp, the 
embellishment stamps are from Woodware stamps - Take It Easy.
Have fun creating and best wishes with Blogger.
Stay safe and remember IT is still out there, so take care.
