Spring @ Creative Moments

Well it was officially the first day of Spring here in the Northern Hemisphere, at 4:15pm yesterday!! Whoop! Therefore our twist for you this time on our Anything Goes challenge over at Creative Moments, is...
Our fabulous sponsors for this challenge are

Who is offering 2 images for the winner
Who is offering 4 images for the winner

Who is offering 5 images for the winner
I made a needle case, but papercrafted rather than stitched - using Rick St Dennis - Spring2017

So firstly I coloured the image using Promarkers. I then adhered this to one of the patterned card blanks I have that are really difficult to use. I thought the colours were perfect for a Spring themed card. I popped border stickers round the edge of the image in colours that matched those in the image. I then added peel-off insects for Spring, and letters. Inside I added a peel-off butterfly and some magentic tape.

I would like to enter this creation into the following challenges:
craftycatz #408 B is for Bugs
modsquad - ready for spring
MTTC #366 Easter/Spring
CCM #207 Go Green
Simply Create Too #136 Use Green

Things that Fly @ I Love Promarkers

I am sorry I am so late with this post. I have had a busy day at work. My plan was to get the post scheduled yesterday so that I didn't have to worry about it today, however I left work later than planned and had to go back in earlier than planned, and what with it being the Equinox the time in between was quite full already. So I decided it would just have to be late and I would have to sit up and get it done before going to bed!!

So here is my card for our new challenge over at I Love Promarkers - #355 Things that fly:

Our sponsor is  Bugaboo Stamps  

The Prize for the lucky winner is
2 Digi Images

I used Birthday Bird 1. Do remember to use your promarkers/flexmarkers/aquamarkers/trias in order to qualify for the prize draw.

I coloured the image with Promarkers (colours to follow).

Next I die-cut the image with a stitched square nesting die from The Works, and used the next size to cut some coral glitter paper. I layered these onto a bright yallow card blank and then stamped the sentiment in blue ink.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
not just cards - Anything Goes
As You Like It - Favourite Easter Character - The chick is a favourite Easter character of mine as it symbolises the start of Spring and new beginnings. An exciting time and a cute character.
Fussy and Fancy #207 Let's Celebrate

IAAS #29 Add humour

And here is a picture of the lovely bride and groom who I made the OOS's for (the spotlight was not very well placed!):

Rosey Ring

Hi there,

I want to share one of my ATC creations with you:

The items on this card were sent to me by a lady in the ATC exchange group:
I cut the red card to size and layered the snowflake inside the circular frame to look like a flower centre. I then cut out the two flowers from the topper set. finally I did add a sentiment from my peel-offs.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
MTTC #366 Spring

I would also like to share the completed Wedding sampler with you all:

Scientific Males

Hi there,

I have a masculine card to share with you today - from snowy Wales! My poor plants don't know whether they are supposed to be starting to grow - or still be in slumber mode!

So I used a white base card with an embossed border, and added some black glitter paper to the inside of the border. I then die-cut some circles from hubby's engineering magazine, which were based around making computer parts in the laboratory (the top circle is a person using a complex machine in the lab). I then used a Wellington topper in the centre as a slight contrast. Finally I added a siver sentiment topper (Anita's). The topper and sentiment were both pre-die-cut.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
613 Avenue Create #207 Reuse/Upcycle (Upcycled the magazine)
dragonfly dreams - All that glitters
The Male Room #81 Space/Science (I went for science)
Diecuttin' Divas #360 Sketch
allsorts #459 Bring on the Bling
C4C426 Sketch also
I would also like to share the buscuits I made - Florentines to be precise:
And my collection of goodies from an ATC exchange friend - recognise anything in there lol?

Thanks for looking - now to go and brave the weather!

BINGO board @ Aud Sentiments

It is time for our new challenge over at Aud Sentiments! This time we have a BINGO board for you to play along with:

All you have to do is create a line from this board (or go for a full house), and don't forget to include a sentiment (if this is inside your card we will need to see the inside also).

We are sponsored by Star Stampz 
who was gracious and gave the DT 3 images to use for our projects

I have used The Dragon and the Knight for my creation - isn't this just the cutest image?!

As you can see I have placed my sentiment on the inside of the card in the form of patterned paper, on top of an embossed panel. To finish the top line I die-cut the image, and then also a bright blue background unsing the same set of nesting dies. However, I have then added 3D pearls, the image is a digi stamp and it is coloured with Promarkers. The ribbon is seen in the flower (made of ribbon), the stitching is bordering the blue panel, and one of my favourite colours is Turquoise, with green closely behind. So I managed to use a full house for my creation!

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
CRAFT 459 Animals
Cute Card Thursday #521 Celebrate
IAAS #28 Emboss and Use a Die
Card Mania #102 Embossing
notjustcards - Anything Goes

Thanks for looking, and we cannot wait to see what you create for our challenge,

Sleeping Kitty

Hi everybody - finally the wedding is over and done with - the order of services were very much appreciated by the bride and groom - and so I can get back to doing my own bbits and pieces :).

So I have finally made my card for the Limited Runs progressive challenge (and just in time as it closes today!):

I took the image and coloured it with promarkers before cutting it with X-cut scalloped circle die. I layered a glittery shaped paper from papermania onto a white base card, and then layered the cat on top. I then added two sentiment toppers to the bottom of the card in a matching colour.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
dragonfly dreams - All that glitters
SUYP #28 Furrything Goes
catch the bug - All Creatures Great and Small

And here are some piccies of Piggy in the snow lol

Thanks for looking,

Feminine over at Creative Moments

And now onto our new challenge over at Creative Moments! As always the challenge theme is anything goes, but obviously, with international womens day being tomorrow, the optional twist just had to be feminine!

Our fabulous sponsors for this challenge are

Who is offering a prize 3 digis worth to the winner

who is offering a prize $10 voucher for the winner

Who is offering 3 images for the winner

I have used Sheepski's lovely 50's Chic for my card.
I coloured the image with metallic and watercolour pencils, and then die cut using X-cut oval nesting dies. I layered onto a blue-green doily. I used an off-the-edge butterfly die to create a stand-out section on the card (I am not sure if I should fold this to fit into the envelope, or just use a bigger envelope and leave it stood up). I layered some Papermania patterned paper across the centre and then added blue embellishments to match.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Allsorts #457 Ladies only
SOS #344 National Dress Day
alphabet challenge - Y for Your choice
MTTC #365 Monochromatic
scrapbook stamp society #135 butterflies and flowers

And now the Bristol Zoo butterflies. The photo's are not great as my lens kept fogging up!

And some more snow pictures too lol - we don't get decent snow very often so we have to make the most of it:

Thanks for looking - now back to these order of services!!
