Creative Craft Challenge - Bring on the bling!

Morning all....For those of you in the UK, how are you liking the snow?  I don't mind it but only if I haven't got to go out and struggle to get to work. I only have to look at snow and I fall over so I'm hoping it doesn't hang around too long.

Today we have a new challenge over at Creative Craft and the theme for this fortnight is "Bling it up"  so lots of gems and sparkle (which I love).

My card is a departure from my usual style, not many layers or embellishments.

I have used:
Kaisercraft Hummingbird clear stamp set -  stamped using memento inks Cottage Ivy and Tuxedo Black.
DP is from the Dovecraft "Wild Blossom" paper pack.

Creative Craft Challenge - New Beginnings


Morning all.  We have our first challenge for 2013 over at Creative Craft and the theme for this fortnight is New Beginnings.

I couldn't face another new baby card so decided on new home.

For my card I have used:

Digistamp Boutique image is one that is included in the "New Home Collection".

The papers were a magazine freebie that I discovered in my stash when I had a massive tidy up/reorganise of the craft room on Saturday.  I discovered loads of items that I had forgot about. About half way through the reorganise I was thinking this is never going to end.....why did I start this......but it was worth it in the end.

Crafty Calendar Challenge - Whats New?!

My first post of 2013 and a Happy New Year to all.  Have you made any resolutions? (and have you broken them yet?)

It's the first Saturday of the month so that means we have a new challenge over at Crafty Calendar Challenge and the theme for this month is "What's New?" so could be a new baby project, new home, new job, you get the idea....

I decided on a new baby card because it seems like everyone I know is having a baby at the moment.
I became an Auntie on the 4th December when my gorgeous little niece Holly arrived, Martyns nephew and partner had their little girl Megan on the 3rd December and my cousins daughter is expecting a little girl any day now.

For my card I have used:
Lili of the Valley stamp "Special Delivery" coloured with copics
DP's are a combination of Wild Rose Studio and K & Co.
