Flying school


    The blue background paper, mice, grasses and ladder were printed using downloadable vignettes from various Carnation Crafts collections and I used their dies to cut out the pieces. The brickwork paper and the speed limit were from scraps I had left over from papers printed using La Pashe CD ROMS. The gravel paper is scrap from a very old paper pad and the flying school notice was hand written. The whole is matted and layered onto deep blue card and white.

Best wishes bouquet


   For this fortnight the theme for the Crafty Cardmakers challenge is shabby chic.
   I have used dies from Carnations Craft Just to Say bouquet collection. I printed off the accompanying vignettes but the magenta colour  did not print so my flowers are a collection of yellows, pale blues and off whites! They are tied together with a yellow ribbon and the stems tucked under the frame. The sentiment was cut using a Tattered Lace die.

Face masks


   For this fortnight the Crafty Cardmakers challenge has the theme of 'recycled element'.
As we all are required to wear face masks now I have been busy making some for family members. Using an old sheet I tried several different designs and tweaked them to fit the individual face. This is one set I made for my daughter using material from her old clothes.
