Crafty Cardmakers New Challenge

This week at crafty cardmakers the challenge is a recipe one by Joy.

Here is my creation

I stamped my image onto card and coloured with promarkers adding touches of glitter onto the flowers. I cut the corners of the card with a fiskars punch then mounted the image onto yellow card, then again onto patterned orange paper. I covered the front of a square card with a leaf patterned paper and mounted the layered image onto the card. I coloured some flowers with promarkers and added layered them keeping them together with a brad and cup which was then mounted onto the corner of the card and the jems were added.

Here we go again let's have another go !!!

Crafty Cardmakers spotlight challenge

This week on Crafty Cardmakers was a spotlight challenge on a photo inspiration from which I used the colours and the spotlight was easel cards.  I really enjoy making easel cards having just tried it recently and this was my first attempt of making a shaped one.  I was quite pleased with the finished card but I would not normally pick out such bold colours as I like making pastel cards.
I am also attempting the first time of entering more than one challenge!!  With the help from the DT at crafty cardmakers giving me hints of where I can enter here we go:
I would like to enter this card on the following challenges:
Wild Orchid Challenge - Say it with flowers
Allsorts challenge - Summer Days
One stitch at a time - Digi stamps
The Stampman challenge - Anything goes
Well think six is enough for my first attempt, lets see how it goes and maybe we will carry on next week !!
Thanks to the DT at crafty cardmakers I will be hooked on challenges next.

Sophie joined in crafting tonight

Sophie, my daughter, joined me crafting tonight (I cringe everytime I hear can I use that, can I have a but of this !).  Have a look at the card she made on her blog  She took a picture on her new camera because she said she hasn't had time to update her blog for a while !!  If only she knew what it was like not to have time lol.

Challenge card for friend at work

A friend at work seen me posting out the easel card to Andrew's uncle and admired it, she asked the next day if I could make one for her with either an aeroplane or boat with Happy Birthday and Welcome Home on it for her nephew who, after travelling the world for some time, was coming back home on his birthday.  She liked the easel style so that was my challenge for tonight, I put it off last night thinking what picture I could use.  Anyway I have made one for her tonight hope she likes it ................

Last minute card for Uncle

I just remembered today I needed two cards, one for Tuesday and one for Wednesday, luckily I had one made for the anniversary on Tuesday but needed a mans card for my OH's uncle who's wife and daughter are both card makers.  Was talking to his wife today about easel cards and she had not heard of them so decided to make one for Malcolm for his birthday so she could have a look, hope you like too.  The pyramage does look a little off line on this photo but it is because I have taken the picture stood up above the card HONEST !!
