Crafty Catz.

Crafty Catz has an anything goes challenge with the option of ribbon.

I've added a ribbon bow to my Christmas card.

Lasting Memories and Show us your stuff

This layout is for 2 challenges.

Lasting Memories asks us to use music or book paper.
I've used a piece of music above the photos.

Show us your stuff asks us October 2017to use 3 or more items beginning with F.
I've used a FLAIR, FOILED pennant  and FANCY PANTS PAPERS.

The layout is a re-do from when I was first scrapbooking. It features my daughter and her Dad both at 7 months of age.
The papers as I said are Fancy Pants "Happy place".
The alphas are My Minds Eye "Cosy Christmas"
The foil pennant and matching "us" circle are from the St Tropez" range by Prima.The two stars and circle are so old that I've forgotten where they came from.

Case this sketch & Your next stamp.

At Case this sketch this is the sketch

I'm busy with Christmas cards, so I'm using some patterned paper plus washi tape on this one.
My sentiment is part of the vertical stripe.


This is the sketch at Your next stamp.
I've gone red with this card. The top part is actually vellum.
My stamp is so old I can't remember the brand.
The trimming circles are from Kaisercraft.

Cute card Thursday & Southern Girls

At Cute card Thursday they want circles.

I've used some die cuts from Kaisercraft on this card.

I can imagine some small child enjoying this card.

My second card is for Southern Girls Challenge where they want stripes.
I used a square piece of stripes on this card, some of it is under the tag.
If you count the staves of the music, there are stripes there too.

I sold 40 cards yesterday at a local café.

Li'l Red wagon

At Li'l red wagon the theme is leftovers.
I'm now using up the bits and pieces from my Counterfeit kit.
This card features 2 scraps of paper that were left over from other cards.The 2 embellishments with words were from the ephemera pack of  St Tropez.
The tan enamel dot is the last one I had of that colour.

Male Room & paper girls.

The challenge at the Male Room is to use metals.

With my St Tropez papers I was given a bag of charms.
I've chosen a copper toned corner bracket for this card.
The papers and sentiment are also from my Counterfeit kit.
I added the bingo card as an extra touch of metallic.(It too is a copper colour, scans darker)

At the  The paper girls challenge they want wood elements.
I'm focussing on Christmas cards so popped an owl into this forest of Christmas trees.
Can you spot him?

It has been a while since I did a CSI challenge.
I have about half a sheet of this Prima paper from my Counterfeit kit, so will start there.

Next, I found 2 photos taken in Vanuatu of the band at the resort and the dancers.
I've used a SOLID pink BACKGROUND with the above FLORAL.
I painted through a mask to create my texture.
The THIN STRIPES are on the tabs either side of the photo.
There are 2 PINEAPPLES.
I've embroidered LEAVES and used Prima flowers.

I used one of the tags I made for my mini kit as my TITLE featuring the word SUMMER and my hand written journaling features the Inspirational words.

Lastly, I drew a wiggly line border around my layout.
