C.R.A.F.T Challenge 39 - Ribbons & Sparkle

Ribbons & Sparkle is this week's theme at C.R.A.F.T challenge, and our sponsor is Angela at Toucan Scraps. Angela's blog can be found here.

Toucan Scraps sells a wide range of printable scrapbooking and cardmaking kits, designed by Angela.

Some of us on the DT have used papers from Angela's Victorian Parlour kit to make our cards, and Angela has also joined us for this week and made a card.

For my card I have used Angela's Victorian Parlour papers, the bird image is from the lovely Jayne Netley Mayhew Collection part 2 Cd from Joanna Sheen.

The flowers are from a spray of artificial flowers attached with brads, and the sentiment is a stamp from Polkadoodles.

I'm also entering this into the Polkadoodles challenge to follow a sketch and to include a bird.

Look forward to visiting your blogs and seeing what you create this week!

C.R.A.F.T Challenge 37

This week's challenge at C.R.A.F.T is Digi Colouring, and our sponsor this week is Digital Delights By Louby Lou, and the prize is a $10 gift certificate to spend in their on line store.

The DT this week have been using Digital Delight's images to make our projects, and I've used their Buzzles in Luv image for my card.

For the background I've used paper from Polkadoodle's Candy Doodles Cd printed onto pearl card. I've coloured the image with pencils, inked round the edges and matted it onto My Mind's Eye Bloom & Grow spotty paper. The flowers are punched out using the same spotty paper with green buttons added to the centres. The sentiment is a Polkadoodle's stamp and to finish off I added some shell heart buttons.

Look forward to visiting your blogs and seeing what you make of this week's challenge, and good luck!

C.R.A.F.T Challenge 36 Love/Valentine

This week the challenge at C.R.A.F.T is to create something with the theme of Love or Valentine, and for my DT entry I've knitted a heart. I got the pattern from Simply Knitting magazine, it's got lavender in it so it smells nice too! I'm entering this into this month's By The Cute & Girly challenge, where the theme is Love.

Our sponsor this week is Susie at Die-Cut Dreams, and the prize is a selection of die cuts. Die-Cut Dreams has a huge selection of great die cuts as well as loads of other crafting goodies. Susie is also joining us this week as guest design team member and has made a lovely card using one of her die cuts.

Look forward to seeing what you make this week and good luck!
