Scientific Males

Hi there,

I have a masculine card to share with you today - from snowy Wales! My poor plants don't know whether they are supposed to be starting to grow - or still be in slumber mode!

So I used a white base card with an embossed border, and added some black glitter paper to the inside of the border. I then die-cut some circles from hubby's engineering magazine, which were based around making computer parts in the laboratory (the top circle is a person using a complex machine in the lab). I then used a Wellington topper in the centre as a slight contrast. Finally I added a siver sentiment topper (Anita's). The topper and sentiment were both pre-die-cut.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
613 Avenue Create #207 Reuse/Upcycle (Upcycled the magazine)
dragonfly dreams - All that glitters
The Male Room #81 Space/Science (I went for science)
Diecuttin' Divas #360 Sketch
allsorts #459 Bring on the Bling
C4C426 Sketch also
I would also like to share the buscuits I made - Florentines to be precise:
And my collection of goodies from an ATC exchange friend - recognise anything in there lol?

Thanks for looking - now to go and brave the weather!

BINGO board @ Aud Sentiments

It is time for our new challenge over at Aud Sentiments! This time we have a BINGO board for you to play along with:

All you have to do is create a line from this board (or go for a full house), and don't forget to include a sentiment (if this is inside your card we will need to see the inside also).

We are sponsored by Star Stampz 
who was gracious and gave the DT 3 images to use for our projects

I have used The Dragon and the Knight for my creation - isn't this just the cutest image?!

As you can see I have placed my sentiment on the inside of the card in the form of patterned paper, on top of an embossed panel. To finish the top line I die-cut the image, and then also a bright blue background unsing the same set of nesting dies. However, I have then added 3D pearls, the image is a digi stamp and it is coloured with Promarkers. The ribbon is seen in the flower (made of ribbon), the stitching is bordering the blue panel, and one of my favourite colours is Turquoise, with green closely behind. So I managed to use a full house for my creation!

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
CRAFT 459 Animals
Cute Card Thursday #521 Celebrate
IAAS #28 Emboss and Use a Die
Card Mania #102 Embossing
notjustcards - Anything Goes

Thanks for looking, and we cannot wait to see what you create for our challenge,

Sleeping Kitty

Hi everybody - finally the wedding is over and done with - the order of services were very much appreciated by the bride and groom - and so I can get back to doing my own bbits and pieces :).

So I have finally made my card for the Limited Runs progressive challenge (and just in time as it closes today!):

I took the image and coloured it with promarkers before cutting it with X-cut scalloped circle die. I layered a glittery shaped paper from papermania onto a white base card, and then layered the cat on top. I then added two sentiment toppers to the bottom of the card in a matching colour.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
dragonfly dreams - All that glitters
SUYP #28 Furrything Goes
catch the bug - All Creatures Great and Small

And here are some piccies of Piggy in the snow lol

Thanks for looking,

Feminine over at Creative Moments

And now onto our new challenge over at Creative Moments! As always the challenge theme is anything goes, but obviously, with international womens day being tomorrow, the optional twist just had to be feminine!

Our fabulous sponsors for this challenge are

Who is offering a prize 3 digis worth to the winner

who is offering a prize $10 voucher for the winner

Who is offering 3 images for the winner

I have used Sheepski's lovely 50's Chic for my card.
I coloured the image with metallic and watercolour pencils, and then die cut using X-cut oval nesting dies. I layered onto a blue-green doily. I used an off-the-edge butterfly die to create a stand-out section on the card (I am not sure if I should fold this to fit into the envelope, or just use a bigger envelope and leave it stood up). I layered some Papermania patterned paper across the centre and then added blue embellishments to match.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Allsorts #457 Ladies only
SOS #344 National Dress Day
alphabet challenge - Y for Your choice
MTTC #365 Monochromatic
scrapbook stamp society #135 butterflies and flowers

And now the Bristol Zoo butterflies. The photo's are not great as my lens kept fogging up!

And some more snow pictures too lol - we don't get decent snow very often so we have to make the most of it:

Thanks for looking - now back to these order of services!!
