The new theme on Ruby's Rainbow Challenges for the next 2 weeks is Brown and Pink (with a bit of cream or white if needed). I made a LO for my DT work using photos of 2 of my guinea pigs, both of which are girls despite the name (we were told she was a boy when we bought her!). Letters and grass are cut with my Cricut.
This theme on My Time To Craft was just right for me this time, Gardening Gems, as I am still in the process of making my calendar for this year using photos I have taken previously in our garden. My last post was May and this post is April! I loved these dark almost black tulips we had in the garden. Sadly they didn't reappear this year so I will have to buy some more bulbs for next Spring!
Time for a new challenge on the Alphabet Challenge Blog, and for the next two weeks it is F for Feathered Friends. For my DT work I have made another page for my calendar that I am slowly getting made using photos I have taken in the garden. I love these little chipboard birds and hope I can find them again and buy some more as I don't have many left!
On Sparkles Monthly Challenges our new theme is Men Only. These aren't always the easiest cards to make! For my DT card I recycled part of an old birthday card (it seemed a shame not to reuse the image!) and distressed all the edges of bps etc.
This month we are sponsored by Crafty Emma's Store and you can win a £10 prize to spend so come on over and take part.
Shaz and I were chatting and decided that a scrapbooking blog would be a good idea as we all have so many photos and don't seem to get round to doing as much with them as we would like to, plus we are getting a bit snowed under with cards! So Happy Scrapperswas born and we are now looking for 3 people to join the DT who can commit to making one page a month and sharing in with the commenting. Pop over and leave a comment to be considered for a place on the team. The first challenge goes live on 5th May.
Ruby's Rainbow Challenge blog has now been running for a year and to celebrate our 1st birthday, the theme this time is Birthday Cake. For my DT work I made a LO using photos I took of my daughter blowing out her candles on her birthday cake in January!
The new theme on My Time To Craft for the next two weeks is Fairy Nice. I needed a card for a little girl who loves all things pink, sparkly, shiny and fairies so I made her this which isn't my usual style but I hope she likes it!
The new challenge on Alphabet Challenge blog today is E for Embroidery. For my DT work I made a page for my journal using Distress Stains and inks, Glimmer Mist and some old favourite stamps I have had for years!
The new theme on Sparkles Christmas Challenge this month is Colour Me Happy and we are asked to use our favourite Christmas colour combination for this one. My favourites change all the time, but I do like dark blue and white for Christmas so for my DT work I used an old favourite stamp I have had for years and some HOTP bp to make my card.
Our challenge this time is sponsored as usual by Joanna Sheen with a fab first prize of a £10 spend in her store, plus a second prize of a $10 voucher from Di's Digi Downloads, so go on over and make a start on those Christmas cards, the year is going by very quickly!
I am married with 3 grown up children, 2 grandchildren and 3 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!
