Crafting When We Can Challenges 49 - Floral

AARRGGG my printer is driving me crazy.  I eventually managed to get a workable print but it still has some inky speckles on it.  Anyhoo, over at Crafting When We Can Challenges the theme for this fortnight is


and our wonderful Sponsor is

Sassy Studio Designs

I used a yellow base card a scrap of scrapbook paper from my stash.  The image Snow White Pinup was coloured with spectrum noir and flexmarkers.  The flower were from my stash I've had them for years and can't remember the make.  The butterflies were punched from white card and coloured to match the image.  The round sentiment is from Craft Works cards.

Crafting When We Can Challenges 48 - Christmas in July

For the Challenge over at Crafting When We Can Challenges we have gone all Christmassy for the Christmas in July theme.

Our Sponsor is 

The image I have used is We Three Kings.  I pulled the image into CraftArtist and printed it out on at A6 size.  I then coloured it using Copic Markers and Promarkers.   Then I scanned the coloured image on to the computer.  I used the Winter Wonderland digi kit to form my background, inside and back of the card and layered the coloured image onto the scene and sized it how I wanted.  I then printed out both sides of the card and folded in half.   For the verse inside I've used the colloquial version of We Three Kings, this involves a taxi, car and scooter bipping its hooter

Unfortunately I managed to put the paper in wonky and had to trim the card square so it turned out a little smaller than the 6" square card I was hoping for.    I photographed the card but as usual the photo was rubbish so I will show you the exported jpegs from CraftArtist.




Get a head start on your Christmas cards and join in our Challenge.  Leave your project with the blue linky and we will be over to leave you some love.

Saturday Sewing...

at Craft Den.  My daughter and I have attended a couple of sewing classes at Lynne's Craft Den Studio.  I made a big square tote and I will post the pictures of this at a later date but I wanted to show you what my 14 year old daughter made this weekend.  She made a quilted messenger bag.  (The photos are rubbish I took them about 1 o'clock last night under an energy saving bulb).

The front flap, gusset and strap are made from a red/cream flower and the green material for the main bag and inside strap handle has flowers on it too.  All fabric and batting from Craft Den (the web site is down at the moment but you can contact Lynne from her blog)  

I think she's done a marvellous job and she can't wait to use it when she goes to Belgium with school later this week.
