The new theme on Funky Fairys Challenge blog is to use Swirls. I used paper from the Hope set available to buy as a download from Funky Fairys Papercrafts (link in sidebar on right) together with swirls cut with a QK Revolution die, and embellishments.

This card is for 3 challenges - Penny Black Saturday's Get Well Soon theme, The Pink Elephant's sketch to follow, and Colour Create's Pink and Grey colour theme! I used my PB mouse stamp and coloured him in with Promarkers and a Sakura Glitter pen, plus some Stickles. I cut a swirl with my Slice, stamped the message, and matted them all on to some silver grey DCWV glitter card and then onto a pink card.

The theme on Make a Moo or Two this week is Playing Cards - this was a good chance to use some of the little images in a Hot off the Press book I have had for ages, together with Distress Ink and some brads.

We had to scrap some old photos for a challenge on UKS and I have been wanting to do these ones of Sarah for some time, taken in 1993! My Cosmo Cricket Fleuriste papers were ideal for this as they matched the photos very well! Title and squiggles cut on my Slice.
The new challenge on Funky Fairys Challenge blog is a little different this week - we want you to make a Milk Carton! You can request a free template - details on the blog and create away! I used Paisley Love Vol 1 papers from Funky Fairys Papercrafts for mine and Lindsay Mason's cute little Stick Leg Angel stamp by Funstamps.

I just felt like having a play with some stamps today rather than working to a specific challenge or DT theme etc. I wanted to make something with some new Linda Luckin background stamps ( click Sunflower link on right for details) and thought that they would look good on a house! The roof and the decorative edging and curtains are made using them, plus a variety of other stamps and Distress Inks.

I have a very dear friend who generously makes me lots of lovely things, and I wanted to make her something to say thank you. I know she loves elegant ladies (she bought me this stamp!) so I used it - Virginia from B Line Designs - together with a Linda Luckin swirl stamp (click on Sunflower link on the right for details) round the edges to make this mountboard tag using Distress and Adirondack inks in my friend's favourite colours. I hope she likes it!!

Another LO for a challenge on UKS - we had to use ribbon so I put a piece at the bottom of the LO! I wanted to scrap these photos anyway as they are of the first time Louise had seen proper snow - she says' What's That' all the time, so I could imagine her thinking that when she saw it!! I cut the snowflakes on my Slice and am very impressed with them!

I came across a new challenge blog, The Pink Elephant, and their current theme is to use pink, black and white. I immediately thought of the Funky Fairys Papercrafts download kit, Pinkiepops, so used these papers to make my card, just adding a couple of Primas and brads to finish.
The new theme on Funky Fairys Challenge Blog is Faux Stitching. To enter you need to use a Funky Fairys Papercrafts product and some faux stitching on your work. I used download papers from the Doodlementals and Funky Meets Shabby Chic kits and a Maggie Sugar Nellie stamp to make my card.

The theme on InchybyInch this week is Roses/Flowers. I love roses, so I found a tiny rose stamp, watercoloured it in and chalked the edges, then triple embossed with clear embossing powder. I think it looks like a little tile now!

The theme on Make a Moo or Two this week is One, as they are celebrating their first birthday. I used part of a Crafty Individuals stamp with Once Upon a Time, and stamped and cut out the butterflies that were on it too, and finished with an inked and stickled grungeboard one and some inked paper lace and finally edged with a copper Krylon pen!

I needed to make a card for my granddaughter, and this one fits in nicely with 3 challenges! The first is the Forever Friends challenge which is to make a tall thin card. Next is Colour Create challenge which is to use Pink, Brown and Green, and lastly is Papertake Weekly which is to use Hearts and Flowers! I think I have covered all of those with this card!

The theme on CSF's monthly ATC challenge is to use Just Paper! I found this very difficult as I wanted to reach for my stamps and inks etc. but I had been meaning to try out this owl Sizzix die I bought a while ago, so it was a good opportunity! I will probably use him as a topper for a card next!
The challenge on the new Funky Fairys Challenge Blog this week is to use Dots and Ribbons and Funky Fairys products. I used the lovely Funky Meets Shabby Chic download range of papers to make my card, and the free stamps from Cardmaking and Papercraft kindly sent to me by my friend!

It was my turn to choose the theme for the My Time To Craft challenge this week and I chose Birds - cos I love them! Here is my fat page I made using Distress Inks for the background and a Crafty Individuals stamp and some Primas to embellish.
