Old golfer



   The theme for this week's challenge at QKR Stampede is keep your eye on the ball. With many golf clubs around were I live I just had to choose a golfer!
   I matted and layered the design paper onto brown core'dinations cardstock and white card. I coloured the digi image Old golfer (number 16103) using Promarkers, cut it out using a Tattered Lace notched rectangle die, inked the edges using distress ink and matted it onto green card before attaching it to to card. I glued a white card candi (the nearest thing I had to a golf ball) in each of the notched corners.
   Keeping to the notched rectangles I used these onto which to put my peel off sentiment using foam pads to attach it to the card.

Sandcastles



   The theme for the new challenge at Crafty Cardmakers is 'by or under the sea'. This challenge is being sponsored by Woodware Craft Collection who are offering a prize of £12 which you can spend online or at your favourite stockist.
   I wrapped ribbon round mirri card before matting this onto white card. The House Mouse decoupage is from the Silly Summer set from Joanna Sheen and I matted this onto core'dinations cardstock before attaching it to the card. The sentiment from the decoupage sheet was also matted onto core'dinations cardstock. I cut out the two shells from a second sentiment and added them to the bottom right hand corner. Using a Tattered Lace die I cut a castle from sand designed paper from an old DCWV paper pack, matting it onto core'dinations cardstock before attaching it to the card. Finally I added a bow.

Happy birthday



   This week the challenges at Crafting From the Heart is being sponsored by Melonheadz.

   I began by matting cream card onto white. The next item I made was the window. For this I used Tattered Lace's window 2 die, cutting off the top and bottom portions and adding acetate for the panes. I cut out a piece of blue card the same size as the window and onto this I glued a printed digi image of the Eiffel tower from Melonheadz set called Paris which I had fussy cut. After sticking the die cut window to this I attached it to the card.
   I stuck a peel off picture frame onto a digi poodle from the same Paris set and stuck this to the left of the window, drawing some lines to represent the string used to hang the picture.
   I used Tattered Lace's die 'watching the world go by' to cut the lady and table and coloured it using Promarkers. I coloured another piece of card the same colour as the dress and matted this behind the dress on the die cut. I then attached it to the card using glue gel.
   Finally I fussy cut happy birthday from the same Paris set, coloured it using Promarkers and attached the sentiment to the card.

and

   I began by matting and layering paper from Papermania onto red mirri card and white card.
   The image called 'Girl in the rain' is from Crackerbox Palace and was coloured using Promarkers and a very slight dusting of distress ink round three of the edges. I then added Glossy Accents to the raindrops and grey pearls to the cart wheels. After cutting it out I wrapped ribbon round one of the corners  and added a bow.

Birthday circle



   This week for the QKR Stampede challenge we would like you to make a shaped card i.e. one the is neither square nor rectangular.
   I decided to make a circular card because of the rockers on the old woman's chair. I cut it from white card using a Tattered Lace half circle die. Onto this I matted pearlescent card which I had cut using a Tattered Lace pearl circle die.
   The image (number 17202) is called rocking and reading and after colouring it using Promarkers I cut it out using a Tattered Lace pin dot circle. Whilst it remained in the die I dusted the edges using distress ink. using the pin holes I then embroidered round the edge of the design before attaching it to the card.
   To stop the card from rolling I attached a rectangular 'label' to the base of the card onto which I placed a peel off greeting.

Glass of wine!



   This week for the Creative Corner challenge, which is being sponsored by Bugaboo, we would like you to create a three layer card.
   I used Bugaboo's digi image 'glass of wine a day' arranging the sentiment above it. After colouring it using Promarkers I matted it, embossed Bazzil Basics paper and burgundy mirri card onto a cream base card. to finish the card I added a gold peel off Happy Birthday and used a sparkle gel pen on the twirl around the wine glass.
