Here's my entry to the above. I chose the Breast Cancer Bestie as I was diagnosed with it myself in 2001, so it's a subject always close to my heart. I coloured her in with Promarkers. Here's the link to the challenge http://mybestiesuk.blogspot.co.uk/
Here's my entry for the above challenge, the theme is Anniversary, and I made this for my step-daughter and son-in law's wedding anniversary on the 16th July. I punched the flowers from the same backing paper used, and sprinkled the centres with glamour dust. The link to the challenge is:-
I made this folder after seeing the tutorial by Caroline on the Carley Creata group on FB. I used Creata Kraft card, which I embossed using an M-bossibilities folder, then distressed using my trusty nail file ! The image is a Sherri Baldy Bestie, which I coloured in using promarkers. The grass was cut using a Joy die and Creata mirror and plain colour card, and I used other bits and bobs to decorate. I store digi images inside ready for colouring, together with scraps of card that I want to use later...thanks go to Caroline for the original idea :o)
My husband passed his exam with a result of 41 out of 45 (clever boy !), and I made him this card using the Kanban Family blockbuster, a Pink Paislee rosette, to which I added some ribbon and numbers, plus some gems to finish off. He in turn bought me some roses to say thanks for helping him to revise. They are gorgeous colours and slowly starting to open.
The past few days have been fruitful....first of all I won a set of 9 new peel off stickers from Little Claire, then I won a handmade card from Carley Duff (I'm proud to say I'm one of her Crafty Army !), and then yesterday my husband passed an exam he has been studying for to gain the next level up in his hobby of Amateur Radio...so he is now an Intermediate Licence Holder, and he bought me two bunches of roses, yellow and orange, to say thanks for supporting him and helping him to revise :o) They're lovely ! I'll upload some pics of everything soon...now I'm off to check our lottery ticket ....;o) xx
Here's a picture of the card I was lucky enough to win when Visible Image appeared on Create and Craft for the first time recently...it's FAB, and is on show in my craft room now ! I have just bought a couple of their stamps, they only arrived yesterday so I haven't tried them out yet. Also, there is some blog candy on offer on Cheremane's blog, here's the link http://cheremane.blogspot.co.uk/
I made this for one of my husband's grand-daughters who is 15 today. I used Creata backing paper, mirror card and a Joy flourish die, (and I think the mirror card was from Trend Pack 1). I inked the image with Tim Holtz Spun Sugar distress ink just to make it blend in a little more with the pink background. I coloured in a peel off sentiment and added to the smaller die cut shape. I am entering this into the Creata challenge, and here is the link http://creatachallenge.blogspot.co.uk/
This is the first Christmas card I made this year (closely followed by the embossed snowman one). I'm not very good at making Christmas cards, but am trying to get organised. This was made using the Stylish kit from the Hunkydory Blockbuster collection, with some holographic card and snowfall acetate added as a wrap.
Made using Creata mirror card and one of their embossing stencils...although meant to be used for Christmas I thought I'd use it for a birthday, I suppose it could be a Christmas birthday as well. The background paper was from a Studio Calico paper pad, and I added the lines of colour using bingo dabbers ! The flowers are from Prima, and the sentiment strip is from Kanban.
Here's a couple of cards I made for a Hunkydory competition where you were only allowed to use the items that came within the kit, with the exception of card blanks, ruler, scissors, tape, glue. There were two kits to choose from, so I made one from both, but found out you could only enter one card so I chose the fancy folded one. I didn't win, but enjoyed just having a think and using nothing but the kit items, don't think I've ever done that before.
