LMC NO 111 & Dream Valley Challenge No 1

Hi there folks,

Odd for me to be crafting on a sunday I know but hubbie has been working in the hard to install the last part of our kitchen, the cooker and worktop above and around it so I decided to finish this challenge.

I have made four cards for this challenge as I could not decide on what backing paper to have out of the four I picked out.

I have used white card stock to make the square cards, 1 backing paper per card, 2 coloured card stocks per card, 1 ribbon per card, cuttlebug, marianne d ribbon slider, spellbinders ornate scallop oval shape die cut, spellbinders oval die cut, sentiments, gem stones, card candy, flowers and some new images.

I do hope you like these and can not decide which one I like the most, until next time do take care and happy crafting, lol

Wallet Card No 74

Hi Folks,

Its been a while since I have made a wallet card but could not resist the temptation to make one using one of my new images and I do so love this one that my hubbie bought me.

I have used white card stock to the make the basic wallet card, cuttlebug, embossing folders swiss dots and lovers lane, black card stock, red card stock, oriental paper, red ribbon, black flower, red flower, silver card candy, ribbon slot punch, gem stones, embossing ink pad etc and whispers pens to colour the lovely image.

Do so hope you like this one and until next time, take care and happy crafting, lol

Easter Cards

Hi Folks,

Have certainly been busy here, I have made 14 Easter cards using the same layout and have choosen 2 of my favourites to show you.

I have used a previous layout to make it easier, rectangle card, 2 card stock colours per card, 2 co orindating backing papers per card, 1 ribbon per card, flowers, gem stones, sentiments and I have used a lovely Sarah Kay image which has a little chick in it just to make it slightly different from all the other Easter images around.

Will be back shortly with another creation for this week, lol

Hello Folks

Hi there folks,

I hope this finds you all doing well, spring seems to be in the air here, the daffs are starting to show, hooray, I love spring time.

Well not been doing much here, generally not been feeling quite myself but on the up again and so have been learning how to heat emboss as never been any good at it but it seems I'm getting there at last, mind you I broke my heat gun and have had to buy another on Monday, twas a bad day that day. If anything could go wrong it did and it seemed to carry on into Tuesday but never mind.

Sorry I dont have anything to show you at the moment as I have just started working on some Easter Cards using some embossed images, so hopefully next week I will have some to show you. Until then do take care of yourselves and happy crafting, lol

4 Male Cards

Hello Folks,

Not a bad week so far, set myself the task of making 4 male cards, not easy as you well know and whoopee I have made them already, yeah!!!

I have used the same layout for all 4 of them, another of the lovely Loretta's challenges. I have used rectangle cards, 2 different coloured card stocks per card, 2 co ordinating backing papers per card, ribbon, sentiments, buttons, flowers, gem stones and some lovely images coloured with whispers pens. I have used the images Bedtime Stories by Home Grown - Sugar Nellies, To Catch a Big Fish by Home Grown - Sugar Nellies and Boy with Broom by Home Grown - Sugar Nellies.

Well that's me do, would like to make a few more male cards and perhaps some Easter cards but not sure if I will get around to them, so until next time do take care and happy crafting, lol

LMC NO 110

Hi Folks,

Trying to take it a bit easier as back has decided to try for another round of trouble, but I am not giving up that easily on my crafting.

So I have decided to have a go at this week's challenge set by Loretta, not an easy one for me, it seems the more simplier they are the harder I find them for some reason.

I have used white card stock to make the square card, pink/lilac shade cardstock, cream cardstock, patterned paper, gem stones, set of 3 flower punches, cuttlebug, embossing folder swiss dots, spellbinders shapes die cut and a lovely Sarah Kay image coloured with whispers pens.

I feel that it looks better at a distance rather than close up, but never mind and I thought the flower punches would make it look much more delicate especially with the sizes. So until next time, most likely next week some time as going to be resting a bit more to try and stop the back going right out on me which is what I have been aiming for , do take care and happy crafting, lol
