Rhedd and Rosie's "no Flowers" challenge


I never realised how many flowers I have on my cards either in the paper or stuck on, until I did the sample for this challenge!

My son has an aversion to anything floral or sparkly and so I thought he would be a good model for the card.  He is in the middle of his AS levels at the moment and so I hope I haven't jinxed him by making his exam congratulation card too early!

I used a script stamp directly on the card, then layered a book background stamp and lightly coloured a few and then Sheena Douglas stamps cut out coloured and then layered.

So this is my sample for the Rhedd and Rosie Challenge - as usual there are some great prizes to be won!

Lavinia celebrates Birthdays!

Hi Ladies

First off the Crafty Hands Challenge is no more :( but Lavinia's one is still going strong!!

This month's challenge is "Birthday Girl" a nice easy one as these stamps give you so much opportunity to create different things.  Anyway, here is my offering - a bit late (Sorry Eileen) I got caught up with the bank holiday and lost track of time, that and a panicking  16 year old with AS levels starting imminently! This house is a fun place to be!

Here it is :)  I used the cobweb corner stamp as a frame by stamping and embossing in gold and then my favourite fairy stamp - well one of them! she just looks so happy! sorry pic is a bit wonky!
