Oh Deer

Hello.

This card has been a long time in the making - I was inspired by the papers to make a sort of retro Christmas card to join in with Fezziwigs but couldn't quite find the right image so that challenge went by, then I was going to use them for another challenge and that whooshed by too.
The theme this time is Oh Deer and this is the last day so I'm rushing to post this before this challenge passes me by too.



I'd like to enter in

Pippi and the Big Birthday

Hello.  

It was a lovely friend's special birthday last month so I used one of her very favourite images for her card - it was good to break out an old Sugar Nellie stamp (and one of my favourites too!)

Purple Patch

Hello. 

Today's Whimsy card is one I made a few weeks ago using some dies and a digi sentiment rather than an image.  I made the background with some distress oxides but decided just to keep to a very simple colour scheme.

Sweet Stampin' Challenge

Hello.

It's time for a new challenge at Sweet Stampin'.  

 Our theme this time is No Squares.

Goodness what a challenge this one was for me! And do you know why? Because I started thinking about it.  I find if I don't think about things then inspiration will strike.  I made a card on Thursday and it went in the bin (although I later relented and changed it a bit) and then I made another when I came home from work on Friday! 

This is the one which was rescued from the bin.

And then channelling my inner Great British Sewing Bee.... I made my own cotton reel by using a Whimsy label die and attaching a rectangle.

Sweet Stampin' Challenge

Hello.

It's time for a new challenge at Sweet Stampin'.  

 Our theme this time is Use Something Not Normally Used for Crafting.  

I made this card a few weeks ago and used the bubble wrap from the inside of a padded envelope to create the background on my gelli plate.  Also used calico to stamp the sentiment on.

And Another Big Flower!

Hello.

Thought I'd better share some Easter cards I made before they lie in the folder unloved and unshared.

Couldn't resist this image when he was released last week and although he isn't actually an Easter image I've made him in to one!

Look at the Size of That

Hello. 

I've got another share today from the April release at Whimsy, this time I'm using a Sassy Cheryl image, Noah's Big Flower.  I decided just to do a simple card and he looked like he might be taking the flower to cheer them up so I went with a get well card.

Unusual Timing.....

Hello. 

I've got another card to share from the new release at Whimsy  .  Now this wee Meljens gnome has long been a favourite of mine but I've never been able to get him since Meljens disappeared so I was absolutely delighted when he appeared from the vaults!  

So today, on Easter Saturday (which I think might be called Low Saturday) which also happens to be my birthday I'm sharing a Christmas card.  You're welcome!

Crafts Galore Encore Challenge

Hello.

It's time for a new challenge at Crafts Galore Encore.  As always it's anything goes.

We're sponsored by Babycakes who are offering 2 digis to the winner.



I've used Heartly Gnome to make an ATC while I was watching Scotland in the Six Nations which I think I was subconciously inspired by as I made in the colours of the My Name'5 Doddie Foundation which is the brainchild of rugby legend Doddie Weir who suffers from MND.  You can find more details here
