My project for this months DT....

Challenge  #146 August 31st

My membership part of being on the DT for

Creatalicious Challenge Blog
where the challenge (#146) is Anything Goes
(with the option to use pastel colours)

This month the wonderful company
Sasayaki Glitter is sponsoring the challenge and offered us a few digis to work with, one of them was Image #113 Summer Fun

I just wanted to make a simple card, one that I could
post on to one of my many Facebook friends for their
birthday (postage is just too high now to make a heavily embellished card).  I folded an A4 piece of green card in half, added the piece of multi coloured chevron striped paper (from a set of free papers that I receive from a craft magazine that I subscribe to) taping that in place going from the top of the horizontal sided card
to the bottom. I then coloured the digi image with my pencil crayons (with the intent of making it bright & colourful for the summer season). To make the sun glasses and glass of drink shiny I added some drops of liquid glass from DecoArt. I believe this is available from various larger sized websites & shops (just leave it to air dry). The words "With Love" are cut in coloured card using a steel die and glued to square
pieces of scrap pale green gingham paper & then stuck to the same yellow card to match the card mounted beneath the coloured image (in a bright yellow). The pearl effect mini flowers glued to the flip flops on the image are from my own stash (they cover a small flower drawn on the image).

I hope you can join us in the challenge for this month.

An Orange card....

Hiya peeps

Todays card is an unusual one for me which includes an
image by Becky's Place. I have used the image that is offered free during the August challenge. 
Its an A5 card using card stock from Papermill Direct
in the colours of Mandarin Orange (240gsm) and Buff (260gsm) with natural raffia and stick on pearls & gems for the embellishments. The rounded edge die is from a set of Spellbinders dies and the sentiment die is from Tonic Studios.

A Floral Birthday Card

Hiya peeps

Todays card is for my DT membership of

Our Challenge is now always
#Anything Goes
so you can enter whatever you like, but it is only
for fun, so no prizes are given unfortunately.

I have chosen to make an A4 card, which I have now given to one of my carer's as it was her birthday on
the 10th August. I know that she loved it even though I doubt that its as much as I do. I love shades of blue finished off with blue feathers & 3 pins (2 white & one a coordinating colour, as in pink this time). The image, sentiment and pink patterned card behind the cream die cut layer are curtosy of a Hunkydory oldish kit called Flutterbye Wishes (I dont think its available anymore). The ribbon is from,
cream hammered card stock is from 
Papermill Direct as is the lemon coloured.
Embellishments are from my own stash.

Another Gamer Card......

Hiya peeps

Yes, its another Gamer card (A4 sized)
but a totally different digi image, 
Gamer by Tiddly Inks, this also comes with
an extra digi image, One is a boy and his dog....the second is a boy and a girl playing. 
As I was making this for one of my carer's to give
to her brother, I wanted to colour the boy in his favourite football team colours to which I used pencil
crayons. As I wanted to enter this card into Challenge Blog Competitions I followed a sketch that had to be used for the layout on a challenge blog.
For the layout of the different panels, I used the
paler blue paper to make the off-set panels and
a dotted embossed navy coloured card across
the width of the birthday card, then I layered behind the Gamer image. The "Brother" sentiment was placed
in the bottom left hand corner then I glued the ribbon banners saying "Happy Birthday" along side the navy blue card. The sketch I chose to follow with this card
The Lego Star Wars "figure images" are just printed off Google Images (which are labeled For Reuse) and
are no way associated to the digital image
company that I have used and coloured.
**The figures on the tv are there just for the
young boys enjoyment not as part of
the digi image (I hope)**
My apologies for the lack of quality photos
this time around, I think I wasnt concentrating 
properly when I had the only chance to take them. 
I have noticed too that Ive watermarked the
photos with the wrong digi image name... It
should just be "Gamer" by Tiddly Inks only
(as written at the beginning of this post).

Me 2 You for a "Babe"

Hiya peeps

This early afternoon's card is one I made especially for a blog challenge. The theme of this challenge is "Use your stash", so thats what Ive done to make this card.
The papers are from a couple of Forever Friends (the teddy bears by Hallmark) 6x6 inch paper pads and the decoupage is from a selection of Me 2 You decoupage sheets that I have owned for a few years now. 
The "Glitzy Babe" sentiment is atleast 5 years old, the pearls & "ribbon weaved through" white lace are the newest items that I have brought (and they are atleast 2 years old!!).

An 18th Birthday....for an avid or basic gamer

Hiya peeps

A project to share with you today, this is a card I made for my grandsons 18th Birthday. 
I made the card a large 9 inch square as I adore him & his brother (15 later this year). I decided I wanted a specific image as he has such an aspect of life. He works part time in a pub, helps out so much at his local Sports clubhouse, Lichfield Cricket & Hockey Club, running the line during the rugby matches, enjoys photography and also goes to college 4 days a week!! Im so proud of both him & his younger brother as neither are slackers/lazy. I used the "Video Game Guy" from Bugaboo of who's digi's I use on a regular basis. The chevron multi coloured patterned paper behind the coloured image is from freebie papers that come with a magazine called Making Cards that I subscribe to. The number 18 are cut using dies from Memory Box and topped with "Opal" coloured Liquid Pearls to give it the beautiful lustre. I layered the black organza with the red "Happy Birthday" ribbon then added the yellow largish star button & the small piece of ivory ribbon (all by Crafty Ribbons). All card, coloured and white (even to print the digi image on) are from a company based in The Lake District, England called Papermill Direct. I use this fab company for so much of my crafting card and paper stash as it offers great customer service, reasonable prices with speedy dispatch.
