SFTW DT post

Breakout your crafting stuff because it's challenge time at SFTW. What more an excuse could you possible y want? not that anyone needs an excuse to craft right?

We have a fantastic challenge for you this time which is colours of summer and we have not 1 but 2 fabulous sponsors!  and they are.......................


For my card I have used a fabulous Scene it image from Bugaboo.
What can be more summer than Lady Bugs?
The red patterned paper was just a scrap I had in my box so not sure who it is by.
the spotty paper is DCWV. The cute Lady bug I cut on my Cricut using Walk in my garden cartridge.
The flower was made using the Tim Holtz Tattered florals.

Right i'm off to go school uniform shopping so wish me luck.

Marci with Lantern

Good morning bloggers.......

We have a new challenge for you at Diva's by Design today. 
The challenge is to use lovely lace on your projects.
 Our Generous sponsors are Live and Love Crafts 

I've gone with another Christmas card for this one because I could resist this oh so cute
 La La Land Digi of Marci with Lantern. 
I have coloured her using my trusty Copics.
The papers are a combination of MME lost and found blue and some Dove craft Christmas papers. 
I have distressed all of the edges with Tim Holtz distress ink (Walnut Strain). On the heart I have used Frantage shabby white.

The dies used are:
Snowflake - Quick Kutz
Snowflakes - Provocraft
Heart - Memory Box
Ovals - Spellbinders
Joy - Cut using a Cricut
Martha Stewart punch around the page.

Simon says stamp = Anything goes

Ok that's all from me.
Why not pop over to the Diva's blog and get some inspiration from my talented teamies

It's challenge time again at Stampin for the Weekend and we are very lucky to be sponsored by Saturated Canary this fortnight. The theme is Butterflies.

I have chosen to use the vey beautiful Jules for my card and I have coloured her using Copic's. The papers are from a Prima pad called Fairy Belle.  I have been admiring all of the beautiful creations being made with fran-tage and thought that it was about time that I had a go. I am quite pleased with the way it came out.  The lacy butterfly is cut from a Marianne die. The lace and the other bits and bobs are from my stash.

My team mates have made some beautiful cards so why not take a wonder over to the SFTW blog for some inspiration?
