CHRISTMAS CARDS ALL YEAR ROUND - MAY - PRECIPITATION!


Hello there!  This month over at the CCAYR blog our theme is 'Precipitation' soooo we are looking for snowflakes, rain, snow, icicles or even snowmen - use your imagination!   Anyway here's my mid-month reminder card and I used this lovely pre-coloured image from an LOTV Art Pad, all I did was add some Stardust Stickles to the snowflakes.  This little Christmas fairy has a basket and 'crown'  of pine, ivy and holly so I chose the same sort of dies for the embellishments on my card.


This is another card to go towards my Christmas 'stash'.

INTERNATIONAL ART AND SOUL - CHALLENGE NO 8 - HOT COLOURS


Good afternoon peeps - here's my card for the IntAAS fortnightly JFF challenge.  Our theme is Hot Colours and I found some gorgeous hot pink card in my stash so I just had to use it!



I love this Sassy Cheryl image and I've probably used it before but it is such a cute image and so nice to colour.    There are two ladybirds in the picture so I thought I would use my ladybird die on here.  It's one of those dies that just begs to have a bit of shaping to it (on the underneath so that it doesn't lie flat).  I made the bugs out of the same hot pink card, 'cos I could!

Ingredients

Image - 'Avery's Big Flower' - Sassy Cheryl
7" x 7" white card - Anna Marie Designs
Hot Pink Card - DCWV 'Christmas Card Stock' stack
Floral Paper - Tonic Studios 'Simply Nature' 8" x 8" paper pad
Ladybird die - Elizabeth Designs Dies
Flower/leaf border die - Unbranded dies
Double Stitched Frame die - Unbranded dies
Leaf die - Unbranded dies
Copic Markers
Gems (absolutely gorgeous irl) - unbranded

I hope you can join  us in this challenge - we are getting closer to summer (sorry, you'll have to forgive my sense of humour) so how about some nice hot colours.  We'd love to see all your creations.   You know we are now a 'just for fun' challenge but we do have lovely badges (designed by our Jane) for you when you win!!!

Take care of yourselves - must go now 'cos the doorbell is trumpeting - Biscuit has his own infra-red doorbell and when he stands at the back door there's the sound of an elephant trumpeting in the dining room telling us he wants to come back in.   Will tell you about it next time - in the meantime just let your imaginations run riot!!

Take care of yourselves and your families.

Love Suexxx

CRAFTY CALENDAR CHALLENGE - MAY - FLOWERS


Good morning to you all - today I am posting my card for the Crafty Calendar Challenge which, for this month, is Flowers!!!  Must admit I'm a bit of a 'divil' for me flowers and I put them on most cards I make - although yesterday's card only had a 'flower' gem on it!!!




Ingredients

Image - 'Flower Power Girl' - Lemon Shortbread
7" x 7" Pearl finish card blank - Anna Marie Designs
Flowery paper - Kanban (old stash)
'Trellis' Square Base die set - Tonic Studios Dies
'Just for You' die - Spellbinders - Sentiments 5 Dies

This month we have been sponsored by All Dressed Up and the prize for the winner is two images of your choice.



AND ..................

Lemon Shortbread where the prize is also two images of your choice - soooo two sponsors = two winners!!!



I don't think there any many crafters out there who don't like a flower or two, so come on and let the team see all of your creations.  Don't forget you can make anything for your project - it doesn't have to be a card or papercraft come to that, as long as flowers are involved.

Hope you are all well and taking care of yourselves.

Big hugs to you -

Love Suexxx

Good afternoon everyone out there in blog-land,  this post is late I'm afraid 'cos I have a lot on (again) and not only that but this is my last card for Crafts Galore Encore so I thought I'd better sort it ... right now!

The theme, as usual, is 'Anything Goes'  which is always much easier to go with.



There are two sponsors this month and I had the opportunity of an image from Ppinkydolls - she's called 'Flower Bee'  and as I love anything to do with Bumble Bees I had to choose this one!

There will be a prize of 3 digi stamps from Star Stampz chosen at random (winner's choice) and 3 digi stamps from PPinkydolls for a winner chosen on merit (winner to choose their stamps)






Ingredients

Image - 'Flower Bee' - Ppinkydolls 
7" x 7" White Card blank - Anna Marie Designs
LOTV Nitwit Collection - 8" x 8" 'One Birdie Lane' paper pad
Marianne Design Embossing Folders and Die - DF3404
Elizabeth Craft Designs Dies - Bee die
Penny Black Dies - 'Hello' sentiment die
Stamp frame die - Unbranded dies

Flower gem - stash

I do hope you can enter this challenge - the winners' prizes are wonderful so it really is worth entering.

Anyway must be off as I have another late post to add - I am such a pain in the bum - aren't I Mrs J (aka Winnie).

Take care of yourselves and keep crafting when you can.

Hugs to you all.

Love Suexxx
