A Fun Saturday and Some Challenge Cards

Happy Tuesday

For all of you who had an extra day off this week with the August Bank Holiday, I do hope you had better weather than we did here on the East coast, don't get me wrong, here in lovely Kent the sun shone down on us on Saturday and I had the pleasure of visiting the Artistic Stamper for their open day, but Sunday was not so great and Monday was a complete wash out, as the rain never seemed to stop all day!

I am with the lovely Christine Emberson, one of the Spellbinder ambassadors and we made a sweet little post it note holder ( I am the one in the middle with my back to you!) I think the lovely Jenny who along with her Husband own and run the Artistic Stamper, took this photo.

Here is my "make n take project"

So although the rain came down on Monday, it was as always time for an Outlawz Greetings Card Challenge, and as it was the last one of the month it is Anything Goes

Our lovely sponsor for this challenge is 

My card uses a pre coloured image from If the Hat Fits

I have used SB - Imperial Squares and labels 4 

Today is the new format for The Crafters Cafe  as we are going bi monthly, so from now on your challenges will be brought to you on the 1st & 15th of every month. The theme is "For a Child"

We have two lovely sponsors for this challenge 

My card uses the image All Dressed Up for Mummy

I used a 7" square card base, with the Elizabeth Craft Die - Lots os Pops to form the pop up card.
I also added SB Pumpkins, Pumpkin Accents and Jack 'O' lanterns. The papers are from my digital stash, and the sentiment is by Funny Bones.

I have also added Folkestone to my Trimcraft demo list, I will give you the dates as soon as I have them

Girls Night Out and Some News

Happy Sunday

This week over at 613 Avenue Create, the theme is as always anything goes, with the optional twist of girls night out.

Our lovely sponsor for this challenge is

My card uses the image and sentiment - Ruby Tidbits - Tequila

The background is a replica of the wallpaper in a club I went to many years ago, infant it was so long ago clubs were called Discos! When I saw the image, that gaudy wallpaper from my youth sprang to mind, so I used a X-Cut embossing folder - leopard print, and some Viva Decor - Inka Gold - Magenta paste, I popped a little of the paste on to a craft mat and used my finger to rub it over the card, I then buffed it up with a paper towel. The image is coloured with Copic markers and cut out with my Scan N Cut, yes I am still in love with this amazing piece of kit.

I also have a little bit of news for you. I am now officially a Trimcraft  demonstrator, I will be in Chatham, Canterbury and Broadstairs (all in Kent UK) during September and November in the Range Stores, so watch this space for dates, it would be amazing to meet you if you live close to those areas!

Thank you for stopping by

A Fancy Fold

Happy Thursday

This fortnight over at Creative Moments the theme is Anything Goes, with the optional twist of "Fancy Folds", well with the new Spellbinders Pop-Up dies it is sure easy to create those fancy folds.

Our lovely sponsor for this challenge is 

My card uses the image Chloe

I used the SB pop-up die Gifts of Happiness to create my card base and I also used the embellishment dies from the same set, The beautiful image is coloured with Copic markers, I then scanned it into my Scan N Cut and used this to make a mask on copy paper, so I could blend some Memento Summer Sky ink around her.

Now this beautiful image is not the only Chloe in my life

The little tabby and white on the right is my very own Chloe, you can not see it very well in this picture, but she is teeny tiny due to her being born under an eco toilet on an allotment, this caused her and her almost identical twin brother to be very poorly kittens. They are both very well now, and have recently celebrated their 1st Birthday, but have never grown very big due to the illness. The big black lump on the left is Teddy Bear and is the most laid back cat in the house, he even eats laying down!

Shaped Cards

Happy Wednesday

This week over at The Crafters Cafe the theme is "Shaped Cards"

We have 2 lovely sponsors

My card uses the gorgeous image by My Stitch Back in Twine called Dreamy Darcee

If you have not guessed yet, I have been playing with my Scan N Cut again, (I just love that piece of kit). The card base is a file already loaded on the machine in the nature section, I rotated and welded the shape together to form the cloud card base, I also cut out the image using the scan facilities on the machine. The Sun is Western Sunshine by Spellbinders and the little clouds are by Memory Box.
The layers were cut in white and coloured with Memento inks.
