RRC Challenge #11 - A Recipe

Time for a new challenge theme on Ruby's Rainbow Challenges, and this fortnight we have a recipe ~  3 dps, 2 buttons or brads and a flowers.  For my DT work I made a LO using various dps, 2 chipboard buttons and a flower.   Not only did Papermania put 2 different shades of pinks in their pack of alphabet stickers, but they didn't give me enough S's so I had to make one out of a 6!!

MTTC Challenge #155 - In Full Bloom

Oops I completely forgot it was Tuesday, I thought it was Monday! So I am late posting this today!  The new theme on My Time To Craft is In Full Bloom.  For my DT work I made a LO using some lovely DCWV bp and a photo of one of the sunflowers I grew from the wild bird food we feed our birds!  The words at the top of the LO aren't wonky, it's the angle I have photographed it at!

MTTC Challenge #153 - G is for ........

Where do the weeks go?  Time for a new challenge on My Time To Craft and this week it is G is for ......  so I went for G is for Green!  This card is pretty much the same as the card below, I have 3 great nephews to make cards for, and I do fairly simple straight forward ones as I never hear an acknowledgement or thank you - so this year they are all getting the same just in different colourways!  As before the Funstamps image is coloured with Promarkers, and the bp is DCWV.

I am also entering this for ~
Cards for Men - Anything Goes

N for Navy Blue Plus One Other Colour

Time for a new challenge on the Alphabet Challenge Blog - which from this week has now gone fortnightly - is Navy Blue Plus One Other Colour.  For my DT work I made a Christmas card using a Kanban image that was lying on my desk, a navy blue card and some red bp.  I punched some red snowflakes with my MS punch, and when sticking them on managed to smear a bit of silicone gel on the edge of the card, so I then had to go round the whole card with gold Krylon to try and disguise it!
