MTTC Challenge #172 - A for Adorable

We welcome 5 new team members on My Time To Craft, and our new theme for the next 2 weeks is A for Adorable.  For my DT work I made a LO of photos of my granddaughter being a star in her first Christmas play at school!  We all think she looks adorable!  The letters and stars are cut on my Cricut and I embellished with Liquid Pearls and peel offs!

Z for Zoo Animals

We have again reached the end of another round of the alphabet on the Alphabet Challenge Blog and this fortnight the challenge is Z for Zoo Animals.  I used a Penny Black Stickeroo for my DT card and some DCWV bp onto a purple card, in my attempts to use up old stash!  I coloured the flowers and card candi with Promarkers to match.  Bad light again when I took the photo - roll on Spring!

SNAP 2012

There is a challenge on the forum UK Scrappers for this year, called SNAP 2012 and a word prompt is given every week together with some technical advice.  I have decided to sort of take part and take it a little further by printing out my photos and making a book.  The first 3 prompts were the words Cold, Temptation and Red.  I may end up adding a few more bits to this page as I tend to fill in gaps!

CYDA Challenge #37 - Distressing

This time it was my turn to choose the theme on Craft Your Days Away, and I chose Distressing.  We have a new sponsor this time, Bugaboo Stamps and you can win 7 free digs if you take part this fortnight.

For my DT work I altered and distressed a beer mat, something I have done a lot of lately!  I really need to make them into a book as the pile is getting very high!  I distressed the edges with a Tim Holtz distressing tool and inked the edges of the mat plus the punched butterflies with Distress Ink, also the paper lace.

MTTC Challenge #171 - Your Favourite Embellishment

The new theme on My Time To Craft for the next fortnight is to use our Favourite Embellishment.  I found this a difficult thing to do for my DT work as I don't just have one favourite!  I used a Penny Black Stickeroo for my card, and decided to punch some flowers which I love to put on but there wasn't room for many!  So then I decided to add some swirls, which I also love - and then decided that they all needed some adhesive gems to finish them off, which again I love!  So for this challenge I am saying the gems are my favourite! 
I am also entering this for 
Charisma Cardz Challenge - Happy Birthday

Sparkles Monthly Challenge #28 - New Crafty Goodies

We have a new look for the new year over at Sparkles Monthly Challenges (previously Sparkles Forum Challenges) so pop on over and take a look at our new challenge for this month which is New Crafty Goodies.   This month we are sponsored by Crafty Emma's store with a fab prize of a £10 voucher.

For my DT work I made a little card using some lovely K & Co bps and a cute little owl stamp by Kars - both pressies I received for Christmas.  The recipient doesn't like pink and girly, so hopefully she liked this card!

Y for You Can Choose

Time for a new theme on the Alphabet Challenge Blog, and this time it is an open theme - You Can Choose.  For my DT work I made a little card using some scraps of paper from my desk and a lovely new Kars stamp I had for Christmas, coloured in with Copics and a piece of Martha Stewart punched edging.
