Crafting When We Can Challenges 47 - Keep It Simple

I'm really getting fed up with the grey skies and disappearing weeks.  Another grey weekend but at least the company was good and where are the weeks going, we've just passed the longest day and we haven't had a really good run of sunny weather yet.  Any hoo enough of my moaning onto Challenge 47 over at Crafting When We Can Challenges.

Our Sponsor for this Challenge is the talented Heather at


Keep It Simple

I've made a digital scrapbook page for this challenge.  I used CraftArtist 2 and imported my coloured image,  Jack and Lily Rose Gnomes Digi Set.
The image was coloured in with Copics and then cut out and scanned so I could use it on my layout.  

This photo was took near Fox House, Derbyshire.  We were out for a walk when my son said "look there's an elephant".  I couldn't miss this photo opportunity could I.  I have used a border from Banners and Dividers and the alphabet is from Classic.

Hop over and leave your Keep It Simple projects on Challenge 47.

Crafting When We Can Challenges 46 - Mad About Markers

For the next 2 Challenges we are being sponsored by the talented Heather over at Lacy Sunshine
We were generously given an image to use for these challenges and for the
use Promarker, Copics, Spectrum Noir on your main feature.

The image I used is called Mitzi

I have used a blank white card base with green, pink, yellow and gold card out of my stash.  The gold card was embossed with my new Tim Holtz wood embossing folder.  My image was coloured using Promarkers and Copics.  I used my new spellbinder flourish with a little flower punch and pearls to add interest.  Behind my image is a beautiful piece of ribbon which you can't see very well on the rubbish photo.  The sentiment if cut from a HOTP senitment sheet.  I added some tiny butterflies at the last minute punched from the parchment paper I used to help release the card from the die.

Hop over to the CWWCC and join in Challenge 46.  We would love to see your awesome projects.
