The new theme on Ruby's Rainbow Challenges for the next 2 weeks is to Use a Doily. For my DT work I made a journal page and used Distress Ink on my doily and Dylusion spray for the background (which is still staining my hand 24 hours later!).
The new theme on Show Us Your Twinchie Challenge Blog this time is Spooky Stuff, so I have made my little twinchie using a piece of a Tim Holtz sticker image, inky background, stamped and Stickled! It's come out a little dark, will try and get a better pic if the light picks up!
The new challenge on the Alphabet Challenge Blog for the next 2 weeks is Spiders, Skeletons and Anything Spooky! For my DT card I used a digi image I acquired a few years ago so can't remember where it is from now!
The new theme for the next 2 weeks on Ruby's Rainbow Challenges is Cute and Cuddly. I decided to think outside the box and made a LO of my cute granddaughter and her cuddly toy! It matches the one I blogged a few days ago as I wanted a DLO of her day out.
I used to love making twinchies (2" x 2"), and inchies and fat pages and all sorts but haven't got round to it much lately and when I discovered the Show us Your Twinchies Challenge Blog I thought it would be a good chance to make one again! Their theme this time is Anything Goes so here is mine and I thoroughly enjoyed making it!
Our 6th challenge already on The Happy Scrappers, and for the next month the theme is Pets/Animals. Although I have many pets, I decided to do my LO using photos of my granddaughter visiting Paradise Wildlife Park and feeding some animals. I used a DCWV paper stack and embellishments I have had for a while and they matched perfectly!
The new theme chosen by Roxx on the Alphabet Challenge Blog for the next 2 weeks is R for Recycle, Repurpose. I have been making a calendar throughout the year, and I have recycled the backing card from packs of cards and envelopes to make my calendar pages, gessoing them before decorating them.
Goodness we are up to our 4th challenge already now on The Cupboard Trilogy challenge blog, and for this month the theme is Things With Wings. I decided to make my DT LO using photos I have taken in the garden of butterflies and insects. I used some pretty K & Co bp which didn't need a great deal adding to it really so just popped a few bits here and there!
A new theme for the month of October on Sparkles Christmas Challenge, and this time it is Traditional. We are sponsored for this challenge by Joanna Sheen with a £10 voucher and Robyn's Fetish with a $10 voucher, so go on over and take part for a chance to win. Christmas isn't far away now we are in October!
For my DT work I used a traditional Santa image on my card and used a Martha Stewart punch for the snowflakes and a Tim Holtz die for the swirl.
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!
