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!

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.
The new challenge for the next 2 weeks on Alphabet Challenge Blog is J for Journey. For my DT work I made a page for my art journal using some Personal Impressions stamps I've had for ages, Dylusions sprays and Distress Inks.
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!
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!
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!
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.
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!
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!
