For my DT work I made a Christmas card using one of my favourite stamps stamped onto mats cut with Nesties and edged with Copic pen. I think the bp is Papermania, not sure! I put white peel off snowflakes onto the blue mat and punched snowflakes with a Martha Stewart punch. The smudge on the left of the card I have just noticed is dust and isn't on the actual card now!
The new challenge on the Alphabet Challenge Blog this week is Paper Piecing. For my DT work I used a Cuddly Buddly image and some Daisy and Dandelion papers. The colouring is done with Copics and the flowers are punched with a Martha Stewart punch. The sentiment is also by Daisy and Dandelion.
The new theme on My Time To Craft is Going Round in Circles, and for my DT card I used some bps from my stash, cut some circle mats with Nesties and used a Penny Black Stickeroo. I added a Daisy and Dandelion sentiment and added ribbon, punched flowers and Liquid Pearls to finish.
We are up to O already in the Alphabet Challenge, and this week the theme is Orange. For my DT card I used a Penny Black Stickeroo and some DCWV bp to make this cheery card! Flowers and butterfly are punched with Martha Stewart punches, and gems added to finish.The sentiment is a Daisy and Dandelion stamp.
The new challenge on My Time To Craft this week is Hearts and Flowers. For my DT work I made an atc, using a Crafty Individuals image and heart stamp, Distress Inks and Promarker to edge it all. I am also entering this in this week's Papertake Weekly challenge Have a Heart.
For challenge #13 on Craft Your Days Away this fortnight we have a lovely photo to take inspiration from. I decided to make a CAS ATC for my DT work, simply stamping various stamps using a bright red Promarker as the ink onto a plain background, and using ribbon at the side.

We are up to N on the Alphabet Challenge Blog, and this week the theme is N for Numbers. For my DT work I have made a birthday card using a Penny Black stamp coloured in with Copics and Promarkers and sparkly gel pens. Not sure what the bp is, maybe DCWV?

I am married with 3 grown up children ,4 grandchildren and 2 dogs! I have always done crafting of some sort, originally knitting, cross stitching and tapestry, then I began paper crafting some years ago and haven't looked back!
I like to take photos of my garden for scrapbooking and the one on here is a sunflower that the birds kindly planted for me!
P.S. - Now I have gone back to doing a lot of knitting, crocheting and sewing too!
