Ha Ha Very Funny & A Real Ribbon Challenge

Happy Wednesday

Today I have two challenges I have made DT cards for. The first challenge is over at the Crafters Cafe, the theme this time is "Ha Ha Very Funny"

We have two fab sponsors for this challenge



I have used the image - Snack Cat by Oak Pond for my first card


The image is coloured with Copic markers and mat and layered using Grand Circles & Grand Decorative Circles. The sentiment is from Girlfriend Stamps and I used Fancy Frame Tags Two to cut and layer it. The cup-cakes are a die by Quickcutz.

My second card today uses the Bugaboo image - Get Your Craft On 


I have used some DP from my stash and added some shapes cut with Spellbinders A2 Matting Basics A & B, I have then embossed them with Do-Craft embossing folders from the Boofie and Happy Days Collections. The embellishments are also by Do-Craft and are from their latest releases Bare Basics and Sew Lovely Collections.



DS4Joy have a new challenge today, and is hosted by my lovely team member Antoinette the theme is "Add Real Ribbon"
I think you will agree I went a little OTT with my interpretation of this theme, but it was a great way to use up some of my ribbon scraps!

My card uses the image - Misteri-Would I Lie


The Sentiment is from Funny Bones and the cat is cut using Poppy Stamps - Large Sitting Cat

I look forward to seeing your creations in these challenges!

Happy Birthday Martin Luther King

Happy Monday

We have a new challenge at the Outlawz Greetings Card Challenge today, we are celebrating the birth of Martin Luther King, so the theme is to make a card for a New Arrival

My card uses an image from All Dressed Up called B is for Bear


I printed the image twice, once on the DP so I could paper-piece the B, the die cuts are:
 Memory Box
Baby Clothes
Baby Stuff
Baby Carriage
Small shopping Bag

The little piece of embroidery anglaise in the shopping bag, I found when rummaging in my sewing box, this is a left-over from when I was pregnant with my youngest son, and was re-vamping the family crib, rather appropriate I felt for a new baby card, by the way he will be 26 in June!
