Time for a new challenge on My Time To Craft, and this week is my last challenge with the team. Wendy and I have been running MTTC since 2008 but we both feel that the time has come for us to step down and retire! However the blog will keep running under new management as Shell is taking over, so I wish her and the team good luck with their new venture and I am sure it will continue to run successfully for a long time to come!
The new challenge is It Takes Two, and I have made a LO of my 2 guinea pig boys. The papers are from my stash that I've had for years, the letters are cut on my Cricut and the swirls are my lovely new Cheery Lyn die which cuts and embosses beautifully!
We are up to H on the Alphabet Challenge Blog, and the theme is H for Handmade Flowers. For my DT work I made a LO of Bella who hurt her claw last week, and I cut some flowers using my Tim Holtz die and some very old red papers from my stash!
The new theme on Sparkles Monthly Challenges is Get Well and for my DT card I used an old favourite Hero Arts stamp, coloured in with Promarkers and some Martha Stewart punches .We are sponsored by Di's Digi Designs with a fab $10 prize to be won, so go on over and take part!
By the way, if anyone knows if there is a way of blocking people from visiting your blog, please let me know as I have a very unwelcome regular visitor who doesn't want to know me but wants to nose at what I am making all the time!
I am getting into Smash* booking at the moment, and am using it as an opportunity to use up lots of odds and ends of stash (as well as buying a few new bits too lol!) and here is a double page I made about our dear dogs!
The new challenge on Ruby's Rainbow Challenges is a sketch and for my DT work I made a little card using scraps from my huge pile that I can't bear to throw away! and a cute Penny Black Hedgie Stickeroo which I find very useful! I water coloured round it to co-ordinate with the papers.
Time for a new theme on My Time To Craft and for the next fortnight the challenge is Happy Healing. For my DT work I have made a little card using an image from an old birthday card, distressed and inked the edges and simply added a ribbon and peel off greeting.
A brand new monthly scrapbooking challenge blog starts today so pop on over to The Happy Scrappers and take part! We all have photos we want to do something with tucked away in our cupboards, so Shaz and I decided to start up a blog as there aren't many scrapping ones around! This is a great chance to dig them out and have a go at scrapping!
Our first challenge is Anything Goes - so nice and easy! For my DT work I scrapped some photos I took one evening in February when it snowed quite heavily and I loved the way they came out with a glowing light so wanted to make a LO with these, unusual colour scheme for snowy pics but I think it worked!
Goodness, 1st May! Where is the year going! Time for a new theme on Sparkles Christmas Challenge and this time it is Christmas Tree. I am not in the mood for making cards, but I am dabbling in some art journalling so decided to make a little page for my DT work using Dylusions spray inks and some of my favourite stamps.
We are sponsored by Joanna Sheen with a lovely £10 voucher for the winner, and also Crafty Emma's Store, also with a lovely £10 voucher for another winner, so pop on over and 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!
