Hello, thanks for your visit. Today at My TIme To Craft Christmas (MTTCC) our new challenge is a pretty idea -# 4 Christmas Flowers. Please check the blog for details and to see my fellow DT buddies inspiration. The background papers are from my Christmas stash. The Decoupage stamp of the Christmas Rose with the sentiment is by Imagination Crafts. I have had this for years. I love decoupaging with stamps and I have several different stamps in the Decoupage range. The decoupage panel consists of 4 layers, I could have had at least 5 but must keep in mind postage etc. The berries in red have a layer of Glossy Accents. The remainder of the panel is coloured with Promarkers. I look forward to visiting your blogs to see your Christmas Flowers entries. Stay safe and keep crafting,

Hello everyone, I hope you are staying safe and well, thanks for your visit. Today we begin a new challenge at Card 4 Galz- I have chosen #141 Mother's Day (UK March 14th) or For a Special Lady. Please visit the blog for further details and to see the inspiration created by the design team.My card is For a Special Lady - a small card measuring 6 x 4 in. I die cut an oval in the centre and die cut a piece of black card. Stamped the greeting and heat embossed with white detail powder on the black oval. This I glued below the aperture on the white card. I stamped and heat embossed two flower heads from a stamp set by Pink Frog Crafts - Chrysanthemums. (No pun intended on the mums). I watercoloured with Distress Oxide Spiced Marmalade, using a Red Zig Colour pen for the contrast. After being fussy cut I added them to the two opposite ends of the card. Thanks again, take care.

Hello, welcome to my blog, thanks for your visit. Today we begin a new challenge at My Time to Craft our challenge for the next two weeks is 'A Tag' Why don't you check the blog for details and see my fellow DT buddies inspiration. I coloured my tag blending Distress Inks onto the tag. Using Sepia Archival Ink I stamped the grasses stamp from Chocolate Baroque -Eastern Grasses. The small dragonflies are punches on sparkly paper. The flower was also made using a set of flower punches. I love the additional wording, so apt at this time in our lives. I hope you are all well and please stay safe.

Hello everyone, thanks for your visit. Today we begin another challenge at Sparkles Monthly Challenges we have for #137 On The Farm. Please pop over to the main blog for details and to see the inpiration created by the design team.
For my card, I created a farmyard scene using Hobby Art stamps -Farmhouse Scene-It set, the sheep and pigs are from a lucky dip box at a Stamps Addict stand at a Craft Event a few years ago. I used Zig Colour watercolour pens, a few Distress Inks. I feel I have to have a lot more practice with these pens, which were a present for my birthday. I love them, and I will get better. Take care, stay safe.

Please check out the blog for details and to see the wonderful inspiration from the DT. My card 6" sq has been deorated with papers and the main image from a kit I purchased from Create and Craft TV - Makers being Creative Crafting World, the kit is called Whisper of Autumn. The papers and images are beautiful, they will make lots of beautiful cards. Something different for my batch making for the local charity shop for when they re-open after lockdown. You can't see it clearly but I added Glossy Accents on the berries which stand out off camera. Thanks for taking the time to look, stay safe, stay well and currently stay warm.

Hello everyone, I hope you are safe and well and if in the UK, I expect you are staying indoors, not just for the lockdown but to keep warm. We have had lots of short lasting snow flurries which over the day have amounted to probably over 6" deep. This is the most snow I can remember here for maybe over 10 years or more. Good time to be crafting, I think, so let me get on. Today we start a new challenge at Cardz 4 Galz. Helen has chosen for us #140 Pink and Brown. Please check the blog for details and to see the DT's inspiration.
On my white 6" sq card I added a mat of dark brown card, the background paper is a light pink sheet of Gorguss background papers, as is the brown and pink horizontal strip of paper. A light pink circle die and a brown oval die are the background layers for the white oval die with the Gorguss stamp - Forget-me-Not. I coloured the stamp with Zig Colour watercolour pens. Added flowers made from flower dies. The sentiment is from LOTV. Pink shiny pearls added. Enjoy your crafting, stay safe and warm. xx
