I've just posted the halfway reminder over on Gruffies & Guests for the 15th challenge, Anything Goes with the option of Flowers and Ribbon. I made a very simple DT card, stamping and water colouring one of my cute HM stamps, slightly off centre unfortunately as I tried to allow for the ribbon and over estimated! Pop on over to the blog for details of the prize to be won this month!
Our prompt on Journal52 for the week has been Just Write, where we had to use our own handwriting. I didn't want to write anything personal for this one, so decided to use a few verses from a little poem I wrote recently. I had got in mind a pack of rub ons to use for this that seemed ideal but when I went to use them they wouldn't rub on at all! Another pack for the bin, it's not the first time this has happend! I don't think I will buy any more, I have had them a while but even so they should still work!
I have made an anniversary card for my mum and dad and am going to enter it into a couple of challenges. I have used patterned paper for the matting and also to punch out the flowers and butterflies. The image is printed from a Jayne Netley Mayhew CD.
Our prompt for the week on Journal52 has been Colouring Page Inspiration. I wasn't sure how to go about this one as a colouring page on it's own didn't seem very 'journally' to me if that's even a word! So I searched online and printed off a page that I water coloured and then added it to my journal with a few extras which I felt was more in keeping with my journal!
Our prompt for this week on Journal52 has been Artistic Restraint and we could only use one shape, one colour, black and white. I found this a bit hard as I like to use an assortment of stamps! Anyway I chose to use a star although I actually think this stamp may be a starfish! I couldn't, however, restrain myself from using my tiny bird stamp in the corner as he appears on all my journal pages!
Our two prompts for The Craft Barn's Calendar Challenge this time areYellow and Rabbit(s). I thoroughly altering making my beer mats for this one, as I love going through my stamps to see what is suitable for the theme. Luckily I had a plain little rabbit stamp to use as most of mine are cutesy Penny Black ones and not the look I want for my calendar, much as I love them for other things!
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!
