Lucy's Card Sketch Day 2

Here we are at day 2 of Lucy's challenge.

Once again - I have been doing my fave thing - using up scraps.

Little bit of red/white elasticised gingham trim, October Afternoon patterned papers and the good old dymo label.  Heart Punch is by Stampin Up and doodled bits and pieces.

Hope you're having a great weekend.

Case Study Challenge #71

I decided to join in yet another challenge.  I'm really having so much fun.

This time it's for Case Study Challenge.  The idea is to take inspiration from this gorgeous card

So I got to using up the scraps from my latest cards to create this one

I've used all sorts of bits and pieces here.

Kraft cardstock for the base of the card and for the Doily Spellbinder die cut, Octobe Afternoon alpha stickers and patterned papers, twine, raw button and one of my Handmade Daisies and I used some green staples.

Lots of fun and lots of colour.

Thanks for looking.

Happy New Year.

Card Patterns Sketch 146

I have to say I've been having fun just creating away today.

I thought I'd enjoy the holiday break by joining in some on line challenges.

This card was created for Card Patterns Sketch challenge no. 146

I have used patterned papers by Creative Imaginations "Loolah" which I just love, the stamp is by "A Muse Art Stamps" cute little teddy he is and then I've added some hand doodling around the circles and wrote "welcome little one", the baby photo is actually from a sticker sheet I picked up in the $2 shop. 

I used the same torn concept as I did on my original layout a few years ago now of my gorgeous little Sudanese friend Stephen.

I just love this layout - he was such a gorgeous little bubba!!!!!

Thanks for looking.

Just adding:  I made the Super 6 for this sketch - have to say I was a little excited about that!!!! Yay!!!!

Celebrate Card

Finally - here is my card for My Blog Challenge "Celebrate".

I have used Octobe Afternoon paper, a little old stamp I've had for ages and coloured with Copics - still learning, I used some gorgeous red felt packaging for the frame - it was leftover from a christmas decoration box, Martha Stewart butterfly punch - is there any other? NO!!!, and other bits and bobs.

Thanks for looking.

Feel free to join in.

Is there something you have always wanted in the world of scrapping and just can't find?  Or is there something you would like to swap?

Well I am going to start the ball rolling.  I REALLY, TRULY WANT this paper

It's by Cosmo Cricket, Odds and Ends "Remnant".

Does anyone have a sheet or 2 in their stash that they are willing to part with?  What would you like in return for me to swap with you? Or maybe I could buy them from you.

If you can help, leave me a comment and I will see what we can come up with.

Lots of luv



I'm feeling like creating "just because"...........I am going to have some lunch and then settle into my craft room and create a card or 2. 

Care to join in the challenge with me?

You can either make a "Happy New Year" card or a "Celebrate" card.

Happy creating!!!!

Don't forget to pop back in here to share a link to your place/blog so we can pop in and see your creation.
