June's DT project for.....

Blog Challenge

Hiya peeps

Today I would like to show you a recent project 
I made for one of my ex-stepdaughter's, Sanya.
Her Birthday is actually the day after my youngests daughter called Tia.

I used an image, to which I have been told,
is from, possibly, a freebie from
Crafty Sentiments Designs from some while ago. 
That is not to say dont shop with them as their designs are so gorgeous & cute.
The hare pictures (visible on the open cut "steps")
are free from my subscription to Making Cards crafting magazine, which is a monthly inspirational read. 
The card blank is from a large set of variety white ready to use cards with envelopes from
Craftwork Cards website, possibly via Create and Craft (which I dont buy from as a shopping channel anymore).
Everything else used is from my own stash, including the coloured pencil crayons (160 set in plastic carrying case brought from Amazon for under £30) which I used to colour the digi image and more since....

I wish to enter this card into the following blog/Facebook challenges:

Tiddly Inks Blog Challenge Entry...

This is a card I made earlier today:

Blog Challenge entry where the theme is
Floral's and Plants.
I decided to use the beautiful digi image called
Poppylicious and was a delight to colour using pencil crayons (which are my preferred method at this present time). I then mounted it onto a rounded edge square die cut from Tonic Studios which has a beautiful diamond border & little holes cut out on all four sides. The sentiment was from my own stash.  The actual card is just a simple 15cmx15cm made from 250gsm smooth white cardstock from Papermill Direct
which is my preferred choice of card for
stamping & printing.

Not Just Cards Blog Challenge project (March 2018)

Hiya peeps,

My first sentence must be an apology for not posting since October last year, but Ive been in & out of hospital since just after my last post. Im not going to bore you with all the details, but I will say that my infected leg ulcers are so much better and I am feeling so much better than I have been for a long time.

Down to the latest challenge from Not Just Cards, my project is a version of the popup cards that are so popular.. I used a pre coloured image of a girl with present, (image copyright to PolkaDoodles). The Flowers I glued on using Pinflair glue gel, both, along with the blue backing paper are from my own stock. The cream card that I used for the actual card is from a British company called Papermill Direct.

DT post for Rick St Dennis

Its time today for a new challenge over at

Rick St Dennis Challenge blog #5

where the theme is

"Anything Goes or Clowning Around (use a clown image)"

I used an image called Zombie Clown

to make a wall hanging so my daughter could use it in her bedroom

I first printed the digi on to card instead of my usual paper and

its the texture of that which gives the clown its unusual look.

It was also that I used watercolour pencils to colour him

The outer part of the mdf frame I used an embellishment mousse

from the Nuvo collection by Tonic Studios.  The mousse

I used is a colour called Peony Pink using a natural sponge to

create the rough application.
