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!!
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!
The new theme on Sparkles Forum Challenges for the next two weeks is Punch It and for my DT work I made a LO using 2 Martha Stewart punches, the flower border and the beautiful butterflies. The prize this month is a $10 voucher for Stitchy Bear, so pop over and take part!
The new challenge on My Time To Craft for this week is Here Come The Girls. I used a PB stickeroo for my DT work, and DCWV Pocket Full of Posies bp, Card Candy sentiment and some punched Martha Stewart butterflies.
Time for the next challenge on Alphabet Challenge Blog, which is now fortnightly. Today the theme is O for Only 3 Embellishments, and for my DT work I made a card using a lovely pansy stamp coloured with Promarkers and some Joanna Sheen lacey bp. My 3 embellishments were ribbon, butterfly and dragonfly.
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.
The new theme on My Time To Craft is Fairy Tales. For my DT work I stamped a cute little fairy stamp and sentiment, coloured with Copics and glitter glue. I punched an edge with a MS punch and some leaves with a Leone Em punch.

For my DT card I used a Penny Black stamp and water coloured in with Marvy Le Plumes. I stamped tapestry stamp flowers on the background and embellished with flowers and liquid pearls.
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!
The new theme on Ruby's Rainbow Challenges for the next fortnight is Gems, plus the DT call is being extended for another 2 weeks so pop over if you would like to take part.

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!
