Moving Along With The Times '3 Elements Beginning With The Same Letter' Challenge

Good morning all on this freezing cold day in Lincolnshire.

Today it is my turn to choose the challenge at Moving Along With The Times and I chose 'Use 3 elements beginning with the same letter' so for example you could use ribbon, red & robin. Nice and easy so lets see lots of entries.

This week we are being sponsored by 'Digi My World' who gave us some really cute images to use and this is what I created. I used Blue, Bird, Brown and there is even a Branch in there too. Isn't this image adorable, it is one of those images that could be used for several occasions.

My Time To Craft 'Domestic Pets' Challenge

EDITED:- This post should have been posted on Saturday but due to problems with blogger and a virus in it I haven't been able to post or comment.

Good morning all, I hope this post finds you all well.

Today at My Time To Craft we are challenging you to show us your 'Domestic Pets'. I used this really adorable Helz Cuppleditch stamps which I got at the craft show in Doncaster and have only used once before and that was on a card similar to this one. I don't know why I haven't used it as it really is super cute.

My Time To Craft 'Vintage' Challenge

Good morning everyone. 

Today we have a new challenge for you at My Time To Craft and the challenge is 'Vintage', that means you can make anything you like as long as it has a vintage theme to it.

I don't think I have ever made a card with a vintage feel to it before but when I was looking for idea as for what to make I saw this great vintage silhouette on the silhouette cameo group I belong to on Facebook. I cut it as you probably can guess on my silhouette cameo and teamed it with this free background I found on google. I added some snow and a sentiment and that was it. You cannot see the snow very well but I didn't think it needed anything else. The silhouette is cut out on a card stock that has a sort of weave to it and makes it look even older.

Moving Along With The Times 'In The Spotlight' Challenge

Good morning everyone, I am really sorry this post is late AGAIN. I made my card and wrote the post on Monday then forgot to add the photo and schedule it!

Anyhow this week at Moving Along With The Times Sue set us the challenge to use the 'Spotlight Technique'. Not something I have ever tried nor seen before and to be honest I am not sure I did it correctly now lol. There is a tutorial on the challenge blog made by the lovely Sue to help us all out.

This week we are sponsored by The Crafty Pad who gave us some adorable images to play with as well as a great prize for one of you. I used the 'Christmas Pine Cones & Holly Winter Wishes' and teamed it with The Craft's Meow sketch.

My Time To Craft 'Pink & Brown' Challenge

Good morning from a cold, windy autumnal village in the UK, I hope it is better where you are.

This week at My Time To Craft we are challenged to create a project using the colours 'Pink & Brown' skin colours can also be used. Pink & Brown are one of my favourite colour combo's so this is the perfect challenge for me.

I dug out my few remaining pink and brown pieces from the First Edition 'Summer Breeze' pad and combined them with this adorable Sarah Kay image whichI have had for years and never used why? how bad is that especially as it is such a lovely image. I also used this lovely Prima ribbon trim that came in a gift set last Christmas (which is brown really, my son changed the settings on my camera yesterday and I obviously haven't put them back right lol) and pearls also from Prima and again brown!

Moving Along With The Times 'In Stitches' Challenge

Grr what is Mr Blogger upto, why will it not post my pre-scheduled posts.
Good morning, it is time for a new challenge over at Moving Along With The Times and this week Hazel has set us the challenge of 'In Stitches'. That means use stitching somewhere on what you create either real, faux or as I did on your ribbon.

I was lucky enough to win two of Jayne Nestorenko's new Christmas line stamps a couple of weeks ago and this is the first chance I have had to have a play with them. Isn't this a really pretty image? I stamped it four times, then cut and layered it with some foam dots as you can see in the second photo.
