Hiding in my Craft Room #349 - Cutesy!

Do pop over and see the inspiration from my teamies!!

Here's my card for HIMCR #349 - Cutesy!

The sponsor is Oddball Art!

Oddball Art Stamps

The giveaway is 2 images to Oddball Art!

I have used Bubba Baboon

The card my husband gave me for our anniversary was this:

So I was thinking of a way to respond... I came up with the following Birthday card:

I started with a white card matted with a Tim Holtz paper - I used another TH paper on which to print the image, I cut it out and added some colour with Promarker and Wink of Stella. The scroll is a die cut that I won from Mrs A on a recent Butterfly challenge.
I printed the sentiment on the computer and cut it out with a stitched die.

Hope you will join the Challenge!

LeighSB Designs is ONE

I have just come back from Australia so not had a lot of time for crafting 
but I did want to join in with 

It is now a year since Leigh set up her shop and you will have seen me use many of her fabulous designs in that time.

There is still a day to enter the competition to make a Birthday card using the freebie on the link.
Here's my card:

I started with a yellow card base and matted it with a paper from my stash.

I printed the image on white and on another paper from my stash.
I cut out the numerals from the paper and stuck them in place. I cut out the cupcake and coloured it with Zig real brush pens and Winks of Stella. Not sure if you can see the glitter on the icing...

Hope you will try and enter the challenge...

Happy Crafting and Happy Birthday Leigh!

Crafty Hazelnut's Weekly Challenge # 382 - Add a house

a new Christmas Challenge every Saturday!

Today Crafty Hazelnut brings a new weekly Christmas Challenge
with the theme 'Add a house...'

Do pop over and see the inspiration from my teamies!

Here is my card:

I have just been on holiday to Australia to see my family - my three sons all live in Victoria.
Anyway I usually do some crafting with my granddaughters who live near Paynesville.

This time my daughter was also here so we all had a go making cards, with limited resources,
 inspired by the mosaics on the Paynesville waterfront, and also cards that my daughter sent me from Cards from Africa.

Here we are, crafting!!

Basically we just had Kraft card bases, a pack of different coloured card, letter stickers and some washi tape.

My card had a strip of washi across the bottom and then houses made of scraps of card.
I folded an origami star and added the word with the stickers.

I also needed a birthday card for a little girl here so here is my version of a pelican...

I hope you will join the

Ike's World Challenges #107

Today I would like to show you my make for Ike's World Challenges!

The current Challenge (#107) is Anything Goes with the Optional Twist a Photo Inspiration

and this is my midway post...

If you pop over to Ike's World Challenges you will find there is a super freebie to pick up...


You might like to use this for the Challenge - but your image is free choice!

I have made a card this month - Spring is Sprung:

I used a pre-coloured card base with Ike's Flower Square
and Ike's freebie Shelf Bunny.
These were combined in Serif Craft Artist 2, printed, cut out and colour added with Promarkers. Finally I put on googly eyes...
The scribbled sentiment is added on a spring.

I used the same floral image last year with some of Ike's Greek images:
that time the card sprang open!!
