K for Kitchen

The new challenge on the Alphabet Challenge Blog for the next 2 weeks is K for Kitchen.  For my DT work I made a LO using photos of my granddaughter eating one of our home grown strawberries!  The bp is printed from a download, and the strawberries are from a Craft Stamper stamp that I have finally found a use for!

Ruby's Rainbow Challenge #31 - Black, White And One Other Colour

The new challenge on Ruby's Rainbow is Black, White and One Other Colour.  For my DT work I made a card and I cut the mat on my Cricut and stamped the edges and the central image with some Heidi Grace stamps I have had for ages and never used!  I used a pink Promarker for my One Other Colour and added Dazzling Diamonds for a bit of sparkle.

You Can't See Me!

This is a LO I made for a challenge, of my granddaughter hiding in the garden amongst the flowers, thinking we couldn't see her!

Flying High

The Cupboard Trilogy currently have a challenge running entitled 'The Wind Beneath My Wings' and we have to take inspiration from the words of the Bette Middler song for our work.  My hubby went up in a glider a couple of years ago and I thought that would be an ideal theme for this challenge as he certainly had the wind beneath his wings!  The photos were a little difficult to scrap as they don't have much colour in them and I take my inspiration for my LOs from the colours in my photos so I did my best with this one!  I wasn't going to put flowers on but my Liquid Applique smudged so I had to resort to covering it up!

Ruby's Rainbow Challenge #30 - Tags

The new theme on Ruby's Rainbow Challenges is Tags and we are to either make a tag or use a tag on our work.  For my DT work I made a page for one of my art journals using Dylusions spray inks for the background and made a tag with a stamp I bought years ago and never got round to using!

The Happy Scrappers Ch#2 - The Great Outdoors

Goodness a month has passed already since the launch of The Happy Scrappers, and we are really pleased with the amount of entries we had for our first challenge - although there were also quite a few cards entered that had to be deleted as we are ONLY for scrapbooking!  I have chosen the theme for our second challenge, and it is The Great Outdoors.  For my DT work I made a LO of a favourite place we like to visit that we are lucky enough to have just a few minutes from where we live.  So dig out those photos and have a go at scrapbooking, it is great to look back over albums in years to come and relive those memories!

I for Ice Cream

The new theme on the Alphabet Challenge Blog for the next two weeks is Ice Cream.  I didn't think I had anything with ice cream on then I remembered my cute little penguin stamps so have made a fun colourful card using them!  The papers and words are by DCWV.

Sparkles Christmas Challenge #17 - Monochromatic

The new theme on Sparkles Christmas Challenges for June is Monochromatic and for my DT card I chose to use blues.  My cute little stamp is by Elzybells, sadly no longer available.  This month we have 2 lovely prizes of a £10 voucher from Joanna Sheen and a $10 voucher for Di's Digi Downloads so go on over and take part!
