Down On The Farm!

I'm getting this overwhelming urge to reference my blog to a common bus complaint ........... in the sense that you can be waiting for ages and not a single bus turns up, then suddenly three come along all at once!!!  So here it is, my third (and final) blog entry for today!
Another card for another challenge, this time it's for "Passion For Promarkers" and this weeks challenge #158 is Down On The Farm.
So back to a white 6x6 card blank again.  The backing paper is from First Edition and this has been matt & layered onto blue pearlescent paper.  The two border strips were from my scraps tray (never throw anything away!).  The digi stamp is from Karen's Doodles and has been coloured with my lovely promarkers!  The image was then cut into shape using my cricut machine (Elegant Edges) and matt & layered onto metalic blue paper.  The lovely paper flower embellishments are from Wild Orchid Crafts, then it's just been finished off with a simple sentiment from my stash!  Ta daaah.

Get Sporty!

This card has been made for another Kenny K challenge.  This weeks theme is in honour of the 2012 Olympic games which will get under way in a weeks time!  So quite aptly named is challenge # 102 - "Get Sporty!"
I went for a 7x5 card blank this time, and to tie in with my colour scheme I chose a black one.  The spotty back ground card is from Hunkydory and all the other paper & cardstock is from my Kanban stash, which has just been matt & layered onto gold mirri board.  The digi stamp is Soccer from Kenny K Downloads and has been coloured with my promarkers!  The embellishments are some die cut footballs and a trophy, finished with a happy birthday sentiment!  Fingers crossed again, as I do love my Kenny K digi's. :-)

Shabby Chic

Good afternoon crafters, it's been a wee while since my last what's on the table for today?
I thought I would join in with "Wild Orchid Crafts" challenge this week!  It's another one of those firsts for me with this one.........firstly for WOC and secondly the theme is "Shabby Chic" which I've not done before!  I did get a few crafty tips from my wonderful friend Lavinia (whom I think is awesome at doing Shabby Chic), so here is my offering for "WOC Challenge #54"
It's a 6x6 card blank and the backing paper is a lovely freebie from "Astrid's Friday Freebie", if you love vintage and shabby chic go check it out, they're beautiful.  The scalloped oval was cut with my cricut machine from card stock in my stash.  Both the paper and card have been distressed with "Vintage Photo" then gold stickles has been applied around the edges.

The digi stamp is from Make It Crafty and was coloured with my promarkers.  The embellishments are a punched out butterfly that has been glittered, self adhesive pearls and of course some WOC paper flowers!  I hope you like it! :-)

Kenny K's Challenge #102

So the card that I share with you today is for Kenny K's Krafty Krew challenge.  The theme this week is "Big Birthdays", as they are celebrating their 2nd year in digi-land I've opted for an 18th!
Kenny K's are my favourite digi stamps and the one that I chose for this weeks challenge is Miss Fortune. 
The card blank is a white 6x6 easel card.  I've mat & layered some Kanban cardstock from my stash, and for the first time I thought I would try stitching around the edges (I think I'm pleased with how that turned out)!!  A piece of black ribbon was added across the centre and to match I coloured some peel off sentiments in black.  The embellishments are paper flowers and card candi.  The base of the card is covered with pearlescent paper and the bunting with 18th on was cut using my cricut machine!
As ever, the image was coloured using my wonderful promarkers!
And there you have it!!!  Wish me luck and fingers crossed as it's a mega prize bundle this week!! :-)

W O Y W W #163

Good afternoon crafters!  :-)  It's been a couple of weeks since I last had a "desk hop" on W O Y W W.  I've been mega busy and not had much chance to get any crafting done!  Although one thing that I have done (with the help of my very tolerating husband) is to have a craft room make over (again)...............and this time "I love it!"
So today I'm more showing off my desk instead of what's on it.......................I know it looks mega tidy, but I just can't help it, I suppose I'm just not a messy crafter, I HAVE to tidy up .........sorry!!
What actually is on my desk is a card that I finished yesterday for another Kenny K challenge and a free Hunkydory mini kit from Create And Craft that just so happened to arrive this morning!! :-)
So I'm off now to have a peek at your desk!  Happy crafting all  :-)
