Natalie & Amy's 'All About Love' Challenge

Good morning all.

Wow it is so so cold here, we had snow but it didn't settle as we had had rain through the night but I know a lot of you have it far far worse weather so stay warm and safe.

Anyhow onto the matter in hand, this month at Natalie & Amy's Challenge it is 'All About Love' so could be valentines, wedding, anniversary etc.

For my card today I used this adorable panda from Crafter's Companion called 'Party Paws - Love From Bamboo', the sentiment came from the same set. I decided on a scalloped 6" square card for this image and kept the papers to a minimum (really I was using my scraps lol). I coloured my image with a bit of a scruffy style to give him a ragged look and then added glossy accents to the heart and it really does shine but I cannot get it to show up on the photo's. All supplies are listed below with those in RED available in Natalie & Amy's Store HERE

Elisabeth Bell Guest DT Card

Good morning all, today I have another card for you featuring one of the lovely Elisabeth Bell's Digital Images.

I decided to go all summery with this one and this image just reminds me of my daughter and my niece who are the same age all but 5 months between them. They were inseparable as young children and would always want an outfit the other had, to the point that my sister in law and I would buy two of something if it was for either of them lol. As a family we always holidayed together right up until our children were teenagers and would constantly get the 'are they twins' questions.

So I went Elisabeth Bell's 'Little Friends' image which can be found HERE and tied it together with nice pastel colours and a summer sentiment. Printed the image on my new laser printer and then cut out on my cameo, along with the sentiment. The papers are from the Papermania Spots & Stripes Pastel Collection.

Elisabeth Bell's World 'Hearts' Challenge

Good morning all, it is lovely to have you here today.

It is time for another challenge at Elisabeth Bell's World and this month we would like to see 'Hearts' on your creations. 

For my card I have used a retired stamp called 'Beary Hugs' which was sold by Belles 'n' Whistles until it's closure and of course created by the wonderful Elisabeth Bell. I cut the red background of hearts on my Silhouette Cameo and then placed some heart backing paper behind it too. A simple sentiment also cut on the silhouette to finish it off.

My Time To Craft '2 Or More People' Challenge

Good morning all.

Today's challenge at My Time To Craft is to 'Use an image with two or more people in it'. There are numerous image's around blogland and the shops with more than one person yet I went completely blank when I first saw the challenge, now having made it I can think of several lol.

For my card I used this image called 'Together Forever' from Lili Of The Valley, it was another one that came in the art pad I brought. I used a single piece of First Edition Summer Breeze paper and just picked colours from that for my image. The ribbon was white to start but I coloured it to match with a promarker. A few little pearls added and the card was complete.
