Flowers

I'm going to a 2 day swim camp today - but I'm up and ready way too early!  So, I decided I would create a card before I left.  I'm only involved as an observing coach so not much preparation needed for the camp.  However, it will be full on while I'm there so no time to craft!



I would like to enter my card into these challenges:
QKR Stampede - Flowers

Hoppy Easter

My computer is playing up a bit this morning and I only have a short time to get this uploaded to one of the challenges I'm entering this into.  I probably should have waited up and uploaded it last night but I was waiting for the glue to dry on the bow.  And then I slept in this morning!

Hello

February and March were both hectic months for me with work - not much time for crafting.  Last week I was away from home with minimal internet but some spare time.  I spent some of that time colouring up some images that I had printed out.  This morning I created a card with one of them:

Recipe Challenge

Time for a new challenge at Incy Wincy Designs.  This challenge we are sponsored by Wink Wink Ink and Dr Digi's House of Stamps:




The theme for the challenge is a recipe of 1 image + 2 designer papers + 3 embellishments (either 3 of the same or 3 different)!

For my first card, I used an image from Wink Wink Ink called Catnap:


I used two papers from paper pads by Rosie's Studio.  I coloured the image with Promarkers.  I also die-cut three cats from metallic paper using dies from Poppy Stamps.


For my second card, I used an image from Dr Digi's House of Stamps called Tiki Tim:


Again, the papers are from Rosie's Studio.  The image is coloured with Promarkers and I also added dots around the image using one of the Promarker colours.  I tore the edge of one of the papers to add a little interest.  The embellishments this time are 3 buttons.

The Beauty of Nature

I'm away from home at the moment with intermittent internet but managed to pop in to showcase my make for the new chalenge at Path of Positivity.  This month the theme is The Beauty of Nature.



I have used a Dahlia image from Sparkle n Sprinkle - our sponsor for the month.
