Alpha Challenge - W

Our letter on The Craft Barn's Alpha Challenge this time is W and we have to use circles too.  I've made my usual ATC by using Distress Stain for the background.  The word I chose is Wheels which lots of others probably have too!  I also stamped a world in the left bottom corner which hasn't come out too well but is meant to be a circle.  I've also inked some circles through a stencil, and my letter W stamp is also in a circle so hopefully I am well covered!

Ruby's Rainbow Challenge #52 - Round and Round

The new challenge on Ruby's Rainbow Challenges was chosen by Debbie and is Round and Round.  When I saw this photo of my daughter at the Ice Bar in London where she went with a friend I thought it would be ideal to make a LO for this challenge!  The papers are from an old pad of Christmas Papers I've had for years but were just right too!  I really enjoy using up old stash and rarely buy anything new these days!

Sparkles Monthly Challenge #43 - Hearts

Time for a new challenge on Sparkles Monthly Challenges, and this time the theme is Hearts, chosen by Ang.  We are sponsored by Di's Digital Images with a $10 prize to be won, so pop on over and take part.

For my DT card I re-used an image from an old birthday card and added some holographic heart backing to it and some heart papers I have had for years from an old Dawn Bibby kit that some of you may also have stashed away somewhere!

Alpha Challenge - R

Our letter on The Craft Barn's fortnightly Alpha Challenge this time is R.  I decided to go for Remember as my word and used a poppy stamp (to represent Remembrance Day) which I water coloured in Red so managed to fit another R in!  I still managed to fit my crackle background stamp in on the edges, which I have used on each ATC so far!

Happy Birthday Ruby's Rainbow!

Ruby's Rainbow Challenge blog is 2 years old today and to celebrate that the theme for the next 2 weeks is Happy Birthday.   I made a card for a friend using one of my old much loved Hero Arts stamps that I watercoloured with Marvy Le Plumes, distressed the edges and added some peeloffs (yes I'm not afraid to admit I use them occasionally and like them!).

Sparkles Christmas Challenge #26 - Tag It

The new theme for the month of April on Sparkles Christmas Challenges is Tag It.  For my DT work I made a card using my cute House Mouse stamp and made a tag with it.

We are sponsored this month by Di's Digitals with a $10 voucher for the lucky winner!

The Cupboard Trilogy Ch #10 - Easter

The new challenge on The Cupboard Trilogy challenge blog is Easter.  I struggled to think of something to make for my DT work as I am on the scrapbooking team, but finally came up with some photos of a little rabbit we had a couple of years ago, so made a very simple LO using these!
