Crafting When We Can Challenges 45 - Die cuts and /or punches

Time again for another challenge over at CWWCC the theme for Challenge 45 is

Die Cuts and/or Punches

Our Sponsor is

My image is Happy Hour and I've used Promarkers and Copics to colour the image and DIs to colour the background.  The pearls are from Home Bargains and the sentiment stamp is from the Dovecraft cupcake boutique sets. I always seem to have difficulty in getting the ink not to pool on the clear stamp so I decided to use a diamond nail file on the surface and it worked great the ink stuck and gave a decent image for once.  I have used a Spellbinder labels 4 and a large corner rounder on the page and sentiment banner.  The dots were made with finger dobbers.

Hop over to the challenge and leave us your creations. We would love to see them.

I will post some of my sewing items over the next couple of weeks and you can let me know what you think.

Have a great weekend and happy bank holiday if you live in the UK.  :-) xx

Crafting When We Can Challenges #44 - Colour Combo - Lime Green and Pink

I can't believe it's been 14 days since I last made a post, doesn't time fly.  I've been crocheting a little jacket for myself and sewing some mannequin pin cushions to sell at a local craft fair Lynne at Craft Den is organising for September.  I'm also trying to think up some other things to make and sell. 

Our Sponsor for Challenge 44 is the talented Megan at 

My image is Skellie with balloon.  I have used pearlised card so the photo is a bit reflective (my excuse for rubbish photography skills). I coloured it using flexmarkers and the papers are from my stash and I've had them years.  The little pearls are from Home Bargains.
Hop over to the Challenge Blog and leave your Lime Green and Pink creations and you could be in with a chance of winning our great prize.
