Simply Gorjuss! DT Card Challenge #28

Morning everyone!

Hope you're all having a fab weekend?

Today is the start of Challenge #28 over at Scribble and Scrap Crafts and it would be fab if you could join us!  We have two new teamies for you to meet this week as well.

As always, the Challenge is Anything Goes and there are two winners prizes (one drawn by Random and one selected by me) of £10 to spend on anything you like in the Scribble and Scrap Crafts shop.
We have so many stunning products to choose from now, and it is ever expanding.

Anyhoo...here is my DT card for this challenge.

The photo isn't quite right for the colours - I just cannot get the greens right no matter which setting I use on the camera and how much fiddling around I do, but I actually think that this is one of  the best cards I've ever made.  I'm so pleased with how it's worked out.  

I have used the following products from Scribble and Scrap Crafts to make this card:


I created the backing card by using my My Craft Studio software to play around with colour until is had created one which worked well with all the papers, and printed it out to use as matting layers and for the leaf and flourish die cuts.  

I made the flowers myself using some of my digital papers and I will have them in the shop very soon.  :o)  They are so vintage and scrummy...love them! 

So everything I used (apart from the 8x8 card blank) are either available in the
 Scribble and Scrap Crafts shop now or very soon will be. 

I stamped the image and sentiment onto watercolour card and coloured the image using the following Promarkers. 

Coral, Sunkissed Pink, Blush, Baby Pink, Tan, Caramel, Putty, Frosted Leaf, Khaki, Walnut, Burnt Orange, Orange, Amber and the Blender.  

I really enjoyed colouring this image.  I've not coloured a lot for ages but I'm reasonably pleased with how this has came out.  I've also not coloured red hair before and used different colours to those I would usually use.  

I will be entering this card into the following challenges:

Hope you like my card.  Don't forget to head over to the challenge to join in the fun and see the rest of the DT's fabulous inspiration. 

Take care and happy crafting!

A Christmas Wish Snowflake Card

Hi everyone!

Hope you're all well?  

Having such a lovely time here on the island.  Had a cracking walk yesterday along what I call the Track at the Back (behind our flat).  It's a disused railway and goes all the way to Ventnor but we didn't walk quite that far.  It's so beautiful along there...takes you along through The Downs and there are lots of footpaths off it for exploring when we're a bit fitter.  But we only have to walk a couple of hundred yards before we're in the countryside...and there are the most gorgeous Highland Cattle along there AND we get to see the donkeys in the donkey sanctuary (across the field).  See how lucky we are living here?  Still can't believe it.  :o)




********

Today I have strayed from my usual path and created a very simple but, I think, effective Christmas card.  

For this card, the centrepiece is this lovely verse which I found on Crafts U Print, which I printed onto supersmooth card.  I thought it was perfect and it also sits very nicely in the space I wanted it to sit in.  

I have used some red and gold matting card from my stash.
and some pearl drops from my stash.  


Don't forget that you have until 6pm tonight to get your cards in for the 
current Scribble and Scrap Challenge.  I am planning on extending it until 6pm Saturday nights from the next challenge so a whole extra day for you to get your entries in.  

Take care and happy crafting!

Mid Challenge Reminder - Wee Shaped Easel

Hi everyone.

Hope you're all well and having a great weekend?  

Just a quick reminder for the Scribble and Scrap Challenge which is, as always, Anything Goes.  You have until 6pm (GMT) on Friday to get your entries in and the new challenge will start on the Sunday morning.  I'm thinking of extending the time the challenge runs until 6pm on the Saturday.  What do you all think?  

Don't forget that we now have no Top Three prizes but we do have two winners (one drawn by Random.Org and the other selected by me) who will each receive a £10 voucher to spend on anything they like at Scribble and Scrap Crafts and we have some seriously lush products now! 

Anyoo...me and my teamies have been busy crafting some inspirational reminders for you so please head over to Scribble and Scrap Challenge and blog to have a little lookie.  It would also be lovely if you can find time to leave a little comment for the girls to let them know what you think of their gorgeous creations.  

And here's mine:

I have used the following products from  Scribble and Scrap Crafts for this one:


The matting card was created by playing with the colours on my MCS software and printing out.  By doing that I always have the right colour card.  

The card blank and all layers were cut using Spellbinders dies and I used the same dies to create faux layers by drawing inside the shapes for the papers and cutting them by hand...I dislike wide matting layers so this is the perfect way to do it.  

Hope you like it.

Remember...you have until 6pm (GMT) on Friday  to get your fabby entries in.  The more the merrier but no more than 3 each please!  


Take care and happy crafting!

Beautiful Butterflies - DT Card Scribble and Scrap Challenge #27

Hi everyone!

Hope you're all ok?  

Have you joined in with the fabulous Facebook and Blog Candy we have running over at Scribble and Scrap?  If not, you really need to head over there and check it out as there's a chance to win £20 to spend on anything you like at Scribble and Scrap Crafts.  The candy is open to anyone and everyone wherever you are so don't miss out!  We have some absolutely fabulous products now, so go and have a look and pick out what you'd buy if you won the £20.  

Anyhoo...apart from that it's the start of Challenge #27 over at Scribble and Scrap.  If you didn't already know, we now have no prize for Top Three BUT we do have two £10 winners prizes (to spend on anything in the shop)...one will be drawn by Random.Org and the other will be selected by yours truly.  

And here's my card:



As you can see from the black background, I've been playing with an early Christmas pressie from a friend of mine...a fabulous photo studio so I can take better photos!  It's brilliant but I need to work on my camera settings now as the colours are slightly out.  But the photo studio has made such a big difference.  Love it! 

How adorable is this image?!  These little butterflies are just the cutest out there.  They're from a Sylvia Zet Hobby House Topper Sheet.  The toppers and the beautiful Hobby House Pearls and the even more beautiful Hobby House Floral Boutique Blossoms are all now available to buy at Scribble and Scrap Crafts.  The gorgeous papers are from the First Edition New Blooms 6 x 6 Paper Pad and I absolutely love this pad!  It's such incredible quality and every single sheet is so useable.  Some of them are glittered (you may see that in the photo) and others are double sided...but they are all fab!  They also all work so well together.  The sentiment is from the Pink Lillibet Sentiment Toppers Pack and the doily is from Dovecraft.  So, apart from the 6 x 6 scalloped card blank and the matting card ALL these items and many, many more are available in the Scribble and Scrap Crafts shop.  





Hope you like it.  

I will be entering this card into the following challenges:


Don't forget to head over to the blog for the challenge and also for the Facebook and Blog Candy unless, of course, you wouldn't like to the chance to win £20 to spend at Scribble and Scrap.  Make sure you follow all the rules or you won't be the lucky winner!

Joanna Sheen Punched Edged Easel

Morning everyone!

Hope you are all well and getting some of this fabulous weather that we're enjoying on the Isle of Wight?  

Still can't believe that we're finally here, but we are and it is now 6 weeks since we arrived.  We're having such an incredible time going on adventures and visiting new places.  It's such a fabulous island and there's no way we're ever leaving!  

Today I have created a punched easel card using a topper and paper from Joanna Sheen's One Summer's Day CD which is available at http://www.scribbleandscrap.co.uk along with a lot of other stunning products.  We have had some great deliveries already this week (Sweet Dixie dies, Die-Namics and Wild Rose Studio dies, Petaloo flowers, Crafty Impressions stamps, etc) and we are awaiting delivery of a fabulous order from The Hobby House!  Really can't wait for that one.  And I'll let you into a little secret...there are some Whimsy Stamps on the way, including those by the lovely Mi Ran and some of the Wee ones.  I aim to stock them all eventually...love, love, love them!  

Anyhoo...here's my card.  I have done a tutorial for this one over at the:


As well as the One Summer's Day CD, I used the 'Just because...' stamp from Dovecraft's Curiosity Corner Sentiment Stamp Set and some flowers from the Little Flower Pack (white).  The blue pearl brads are from The Hobby House and I'm planning on having them in stock very soon.  We will have some of the larger ones in stock when our first order arrives...they're lush!  

Don't forget to head over to the Scribble and Scrap Challenge and Blog for the tutorial so you can create your own punched edged easel cards yourself...and then you can enter it into our Always Anything Goes fortnightly challenge.

Take care and happy crafting!

Lillibet - DT Card Scribble and Scrap Challenge #26

Hi everyone!

Hope you're all well?

It's been all go at this end.  Not only have we (that's the Royal 'we') been busy finishing off sorting out our lovely new home, but we've also been exploring as well.  And you may have noticed that there have been a few changes in the Scribble and Scrap Crafts shop.  In case you have missed it, we have retired all the digital images but have kept the digital papers and Vintage Photo Sheets...BUT we have also added a lot more products and more will be coming very soon as I placed some fabulous orders yesterday.  At present we have some of Joanna Sheen's latest CDs (so beautiful) and cardmaking pads packed with lovely toppers.  And we have some cracking paper pads (lots more on their way), Lillibet stamps and lots and lots of flowers which I had made up to go under the Scribble and Scrap Crafts' brand...and there is a lot more to follow!  

Anyhoo...it's the start of Challenge #26 over at Scribble and Scrap and, as always, it's Anything Goes.  There are now no prizes for the Top Three or a GDT spot, however there will be two winners (one drawn by Random.Org and one selected by myself) and each will win a £10 voucher to spend at Scribble and Scrap Crafts.  

Right...here's my card:

I'm afraid the photo doesn't show the colours off too well (they're a little brighter in the flesh, and the paper in the centre across the middle has a creamy, yellow background...who said cameras never lie?) but isn't this little girl so adorable? 

This is Lillibet and she can be found here.  

Lillibet is so quick and easy to colour and I think she'd also really look good coloured in using sepia tones...shall have to try that another day.  

This stamp is Lillibet Holding Flower and the papers are from the Lillibet Designer Paper Pack.   
The flower is from the Little Flowers pack in the Scribble and Scrap Crafts flowers range.
The sentiment is from the Dovecrafts Curiosity Corner Sentiment Stamp Set and the faux pearl hearts and brad are from the Hobby House and I will be having them in the shop in the near future.


The die cuts were created using a Spellbinders die (stock of the future!) and a Doo Hickey dragonfly die (also on my wishlist for the shop) cut out of cream glitter card.  

I coloured the image using the following markers:

Copics:  E00, E11 and E21

Promarkers:  Cool Grey 1, Blender, Putty, Dusky Rose, Antique Pink, Coral, Sunkissed Pink, Almond, Meadow Green, Apple, Sandstone, Blush and Satin.  

I will be entering this card into the following challenges:  


I hope you come and join us in the new challenge and that you pop by the shop to take a look.  There is currently a launch sale going on where you can enter the code LAUNCH20 and get 20% off all your orders.  There is also free p&p for sales of £9 or more.  Please note that we do not currently ship outside of the UK.  

Take care and happy crafting!

Wee DT Card for Scribble and Scrap Challenge #25

Hi everyone!

Soooo sorry not to have blogged but I've been just a tad busy with moving to the beautiful Isle of Wight and making our home here as well as making lots of very exciting plans for the shop, which I will announce in the next few days...  Ooh.

Everything is going brilliantly.  We have the most gorgeous little flat (and it's seriously diddy but I've managed to make it work really well for me and Jamie) with the most gorgeous outlook at the back in the most fabulous area.  There is an old disused railway running at the bottom of our garden which has been made all weather with a lovely new surface.  We can walk to the donkey sanctuary (saw them across the fields when we walked it the other day) and all sorts of places.  When we're fit enough we can go up on The Downs for some serious exploring.  AND there are bunnies and horses and gorgeous highland cattle along there...just a few hundred yards from our home.  It really is a fabulous place to walk. 

Mostly we've been busy building furniture (masses of the stuff) and getting organised, but we have managed to fit in an organised fossil walk run by the Dinosaur Island museum.  It was brilliant and I found a little bit of a dinosaur bone.  Incredible to know that I'm the first person to have ever set eyes on that bit of bone!  So chuffed.  It really was a great walk and we learned a lot.  You must go on one if ever you come over to the island for a holibobs as they're really good fun.  We've also visited the museum a couple of times as we've taken out annual membership.  I think we're going to be there more than the staff, lol.  It's a brilliant place.  

Absolutely love everything about living here.  It's just an incredible place and every single day we discover something which just makes it better and better.  Totally in love with our new home.  

Anyway...don't faint but I've made a card!!!!  I did stand at my recently cleared craft desk (squashed into my teeny weeny bedroom) and stare blankly thinking 'now what do I do?!!!!'  So today I went for simple and it's paid off as I'm all back into it now and raring to go.  It was brilliant to be crafting again, which is good as I have a heck of a lot of plans and will be crafting like crazy again very, very soon.  

Anyhoo...today is the start of Challenge #25 over at Scribble and Scrap and that means that in a week our challenges have been running for a whole year.  Doesn't seem possible!  

There are some changes to the challenges from now on.  These tie in with the changes I am making to the shop (we are having a new shop set up as well...in a few days time!) and they mean that prizes will be different from this challenge onwards.  Sorry...but there will no longer be a £5 voucher for the Top Three winners BUT instead I will be having a £10 voucher for the winner drawn by Random.Org AND a £10 voucher for a winner chosen by myself.  Yay!  The reasons will become clear once I have announced the changes happening at Scribble and Scrap Crafts....  Ooh...now you're dying to know, aren't you?  Other than the changes in the prizes, the only other change is that there won't be a GDT position in the challenge.  However...I will be making up for that in other ways to do with the blog...

Right...enough of this waffle and on to my card.


How cute is this?   I absolutely love the Wee images and this one is from a topper sheet (way too busy to colour this week) I purchased from The Hobby House.

The papers and matching matting layer I have used are from the Scribble and Scrap Crafts Fabulous Florals 1 Designer Paper Set (digital)  which will be on a different link shortly, though will still be available in the shop.  Just do a search and it will appear.  

The faux gems and brads are from my stash, as are the gorgeous flowers!  I have no idea where I bought them from.  I found a whole load of them in a box the other day and decided I needed to use some of them, especially as they are so beautiful.  

I created the sentiment on my lappy and that's it...a nice, simple but (I think) really pretty card. 

Wow!  It feels so fabulous to be crafting again.  Almost got this place sorted out and then there will be no stopping me.  Yay.  

Don't forget to head over to the challenge and check out the other DT inspiration and also to keep your eyes on the blog in the coming days for my exciting news.  

Take care and happy crafting!

Scribble and Scrap Challenge #22 (Jamie's Birthday Card).

Hi everyone!

Hope you're all ok and enjoying the summery weather...if you're having any!

Well, today is the start of challenge #22 over at Scribble and Scrap and, as always, it's ANYTHING GOES!  There are great prizes to be won for the Top Three as well as the GDT so please pop over and have a look.  All the information can be found on the blog.  There's going to be some exciting news on there in the coming months so make sure you keep an eye on it.  

Anyhoo..not only is it new challenge day but it's also my little man's 8th birthday and his card is the one I'm featuring today.  Jamie maybe 8 years old and love dinosaurs and enjoy doing crazy things for an (only just) 8 year old, like doing university courses (he's home educated and lives to learn!) but he's still a little lad and still loves his teddies so I've made him a cute and pretty card...probably for the last time as I don't think I'll get away with it next year, lol.  

So...here's Jamie's birthday card:

I think I can just get away with it with Jamie, lol.  

The image is a slightly adapted Archie (my own digi) but you won't find this version in the shop yet.  I've adjusted him slightly especially for Jamie.  

All the papers, though, are from my Scribble and Scrap Moody Blues Digi Paper Set as is the matting layer.  This set is perfect for male and female cards because the blues are pretty and fresh.  I have used three different papers from the set.  

I typed out the sentiment myself.

The corners and card candy are from my stash. 

The die cuts are cut using a Memory Box die.  

I'm really chuffed with this card.

I coloured the image using the following promarkers:

Aqua, Marine, Turqoise and Blender.

Absolutely love my little Archie...just so cute.  


Don't forget to head over for the challenge and to keep an eye on the blog  for the upcoming news in the next month or two!

Take care and happy crafting!

Scribble and Scrap Challenge #21 DT Card.

Hi everyone!

Wow...look at me go!  Two cards in two weeks...incredible!  :o)

It's time for another Anything Goes challenge over at Scribble and Scrap.  You will find all the information about rules and the fabulous prizes over there so please head over and take a look.  The DT have made some fabulous projects for this week.  Also on the challenge, you will find showcase posts of the winners from Challenge #19.  Yes...if you get GDT, Top Three or are the Winner then your gorgeous projects will be showcased in their own post on the blog!  Yay! 

Anyhoo...here's my DT Card:

Awwww...how cute is this little image?  The image is called Catching Hearts and she can be found in the Art by Miran Etsy shop alongside almost 160 other beautiful digis. 

I've not coloured her as well as I'd like as I'm so out of practice and I also think I should have put my glasses on as looking at the photo the hair colours don't like the ones I thought I'd used.  

The pens I used (or thought I had, lol) are as follows:

Copics:  E00, E11 and E21

Promarkers:  Walnut, Cocoa, Caramel, Baby Pink, Antique Pink, Marine, Turquoise, Cool Aqua, Sandstone, Satin and Putty for outlining.  

The papers and matting layer (which matches the papers perfectly) are from the Pink and Brown Digital Paper Set 1 which is one of many digi paper sets available at Scribble and Scrap.  The flower is created using one of the papers from the set as well.  The sentiment digi is from the Basic Birthday Sentiment Set 1 at Scribble and Scrap.

The charm is from my stash, the heart pears and pearl brad are from The Hobby House and the little silver corner is from Wild Orchid Crafts, I think. 

The inside is decorated to match.  

I will be entering this card into the following challenges:

Don't forget to hop over to the Scribble and Scrap Blog to see the fabulous DT and GDT inspiration and to join in the fun. 

Take care and happy crafting!

Scribble and Scrap Challenge #20 DT Card

Hi everyone!

Hope you're all ok and have been being good?

I know, I know...it's ages since I've blogged but I have been very busy doing behind the scenes stuff as well as preparing for a big house move at the end of July.  I'm way too excited about the move to settle until we're completely ready, so I've cracked on with that and we're almost there.  Need to do a little bit more sorting stuff, some painting and things but the bulk of it's done and it's so well organised that it won't take long to do the final bits...apart from some decorating (groan).  But now I'm finding more time for crafting, which is brilliant.  The break's done me good, though, and I'm itching to really get back into the groove so watch this space!  :o)

Anyhoo...today is the start of Challenge #20 over at Scribble and Scrap.  I really cannot believe we're on our 20th challenge already and I want to thank you all for making it so successful and a whole lot of fun. 

All the rules are over on the Scribble and Scrap Challenge Blog so come and join us!  It's always Anything Goes so no excuses...and the prizes are pretty fabulous too! 

And here's my card:


For this vintage card I have used the following Scribble and Scrap products.

and

The faux pearls are from my stash and the gorgeous roses and metal corners are from

********

I have used three different papers from the Vintage Digi Papers Set 1 and also one of the plain matting layers which I have included in the set for a perfect match when matting and layering.  I have also 'stamped' the sentiment digi onto some of the paper to finish off.

A Martha Stewart punch was used to create the lace panel.  

The interior of the card is decorated to match.  

The beautiful photo images come in black and white but I have adjusted the colour slightly for this one so that it is a little softer and more vintage.  

Don't forget to drop by the challenge and join in.  Can't wait to see your projects.  Good luck!

Take care everyone and happy crafting!

Scribble and Scrap Challenge DT Card - Challenge #17

Hi everyone!

Hope you're all ok?  

Sorry...been so busy that my blog has been sorely neglected.  I've not even had time to change the background...shall do it soon.

Anyway, I'm here with a new card for Challenge #17 over at Scribble and Scrap

The usual rules apply (see blog link above) and there is a £15 voucher for the Random drawn winner and also £5 vouchers for each of the Top Three.  

As always, it's Anything Goes so no excuses...we really wanna see all your projects!

Anyoo...here's my card created using a gorgeous Wee digi called Daphne.


Isn't Daphne so cute?

I have coloured the image in using the following pens:

Copics:  E00, E11, E21

Promarkers:  Berry Red, Lipstick Red, Crimson, Caramel,
Sandstone, Satin, Baby Pink, Mustard, Gold, Vanilla, Amber,
Pumpkin, Spice, Apricot, Ginger, Bright Green, Lime Green,
and Lime Zest.  

I used the Scribble and Scrap Hot Stuff Digital Paper Set for the papers and flowers.  Absolutely love these colours.  The matting layers are also from the paper set to ensure that you get a perfect match. 

The stamp is from a set in my stash and the brads were from the Hobby House.  The other faux pearls are from my stash. 

I have used all this to create a shutter card which are so easy to make.  I will make a tutorial and put it on the Scribble and Scrap Blog in the next few days if I can sort the photos out.  Right now I'm having big problems with the card reader on my new lappy (grrrr).  

I will enter this card into the following challenges:

Scribble and Scrap Challenge DT Card - Wee.

Morning everyone!

Long time now see...sorry.  I've been so busy but will be gradually getting back to normal in the next few months (I hope) but I will be a little quiet until then.  More news on that another time.  

Anyway, today is the start of challenge #14 over at Scribble and Scrap and, as always, it's Anything Goes.  

There is a £15 voucher for the randomly drawn winner (£20 if a Scribble and Scrap product has been used) and a £5 voucher for each of the Top Three.

Please check out all the rules over on the blog to make sure that you don't lose out on any of the prizes. 

Anyway...here's my card.

 
I have used one of the gorgeous Wee toppers from The Hobby House for this one.  My printer's playing up and isn't liking printing in black and white so no colouring of digis for me this time around.  

The papers I have used (4 different ones) are from my own (Scribble and Scrap's) Grungy Floral - Naturals Paper Set which, although I'm biased, I think is absolutely gorgeous.  The matching matting layer also comes from the set so that all layers match perfectly together.  

The flowers were cut from one of the papers but the pattern doesn't show up clearly in the photo.  I used a Marianne die to cut those.  

The inside is decorated to match.  The pearl brads are from The Hobby House and the clear faux gems are from my stash.  

I will be entering this card into the following challenges:

Scribble and Scrap Challenge #12 DT Card - Archie with a Flower

Hi everyone!

Hope you're all ok and surviving the absolutely horrendous weather.  We've been so lucky where we are but I really feel for those who are being hit hard again and again and again.  It's non stop this year.  Also thinking about all the millions of animals who will have been killed or who have lost their homes, especially the burrowing ones.  :o(

Anyway...it's challenge time again over at Scribble and Scrap.  As always it's Anything Goes and the random drawn winner will receive a £15voucher (£20 if they have used a Scribble and Scrap product!) to spend in the Scribble and Scrap shop, and the Top Three will receive a £5 voucher each.  Great prizes, especially with all the new papers I have been adding to the shop over the last week or two!  Not only that but there are two Archies (cute bear character) including one which is only just in the shop today...the one I have used for my card...he's my little guy and I had a lot of fun drawing him.

And on to my card:


Awww...isn't he cute?  Archie can be found here.

I coloured Archie with the following promarkers:

Cool Grey 1 & 3, Walnut, Cocoa, Sandstone and Blender.

My colouring's not all that this time as I had to use a different card which didn't blend so well.  I need to stock up on Supersmooth!  My bad!  

As well as Archie, I have also used 3 papers from Scribble and Scrap's Lacy Florals Digital Paper Set as well as one of the matting colours from the same set to ensure the perfect match.

AND the sentiment is also from Scribble and Scrap - Basic Birthday Sentiment Digi Set

The brads are from The Hobby House, the flowers and leaves are from Wild Orchid and the faux pearls are from my stash. 

The inside is decorated to match.

I will be entering this card into the following challenges:

http://avenue613.blogspot.co.uk/  - Anything Goes - 23/2

Meet Archie!

Hi everyone,

hope you're all ok?

I've been so busy creating papers and things for the shop and me and Dave have got together and came up with a new character.  We only have one digi ready so far but more will be following soon (ish).  :o)

Anyhoo...just made this card featuring Archie (who will be available in the shop in the next day or two) and some of the new papers.

Archie is now in the shop!


Isn't Archie just so adorable?  I'm absolutely in love with this little guy, but if he was real I'd have to fight Jamie for him as he loves him too.  

I have used 5 of the papers from the Scribble and Scrap Valentine's Digi Paper Set.  I even used the papers to create the daisies which were cut using the Spellbinders Daisy Patch dies.  

The large pearl brads are from The Hobby House, the faux pearls are from my stash and I created the sentiment on my lappy.  

I coloured Archie using the following Promarkers:

Cool Grey 1 & 3, Cocoa, Caramel, Sandstone and the blender.  

The inside is decorated to match.  

I'm pretty pleased with this card and will be entering it into the following challenges:

Scribble and Scrap Challenge #11 DT Project - Heart Shaped Box

Morning everyone!

Goodness...two posts in two days...I better watch I don't do myself a mischief!  :o)  


Today is the start of Challenge #11 over at Scribble and Scrap and, as always, it's Anything Goes!  Yay!  See the blog for more information and the rules, which are on the Challenge Rules and Info page.  If you don't follow the rules you don't stand a chance of winning...simples.  
The winner (drawn by Random.Org) will receive a £15 voucher (£20 if they have used a www.scribbleandscrap.co.uk product) and each of the Top Three will receive a £5 voucher to spend in the shop. 

And here's my project

Yep...a box!  :o)  

I've used a Silhouette cutting file to create this box and it was so simple to make but I wanted to do it to show off one of the papers I have been working on.  I have just added In the Pink Set 1 to the shop so head over for a nose.  They will shortly be available in a variety of colours and I will also be doing them in colour combos as well...so watch this space.  

The ribbon and brad were from my stash and I used Joanna Sheen and Cheery Lynn dies to cut the flower and leaves...and that's it.  

I would like to say there are chocolates in here but do you really think that they would remain uneaten by the time I'd set up the photo and done the shoot?  Nope...so I resisted the temptation.  :o)  You could put little love heart sweets in here...or even a ring!  How cute.  

Looking forward to seeing all your wonderful projects in Challenge #11.  Good luck.

Take care and happy crafting!

Man Up! - A Little Bit Crafty Challenge

Morning everyone!

Hope you're all ok and keeping warm and dry?

Today is the start of February's challenge over at Paula Holifield's A Little Bit Crafty Challenge and this month the theme is 'Man Up!' so we want lots of 'man' themed projects.  

This month the challenge is sponsored by:

Visible Image
Set of 3 stamp sets 
 
Ephemera pack
Set of 2 stamps

More information can be found over on the challenge.

Visible Image Stamps very kindly provided me with the Clayton Legend Stamp Set to use for this challenge...and here is my card:

Clayton really reminds me of my Jamie and this is the perfect card for Jamie as right now he's doing an online university course run by the University of Alberta on dinosaur paleobiology...even though he's only 7.5 years old.  He's 2/3 of the way through and loving ever second.  So he's certainly aiming high!  

Both the image and the sentiments are from the Clayton Legend stamp set and I coloured the image using the following markers:

Copics:  E00, E11 and E21

Promarkers:  Pastel Blue, Denim, Midnight blue, Walnut, Cocoa, Cinnamon, Caramel, Sandstone, Satin, Crimson, Berry Red, Red,  Black, Cool Grey 5, 3 and 1. 

I created the papers myself in colours to match the image.  

The buttons were cut using a Memory Box die.  

Good luck in the challenge everyone!

Take care and happy crafting!
