Crafting When We Can Challenge 54 - Sketch

The challenge this fortnight over at CWWCC is a sketch by me.  I have to apologies for the colours I used I was in a very clashy mood when I designed it.

Our Sponsor for this challenge is 

and our Theme is a Sketch by me.

I used the image Run Derek Run and I've tried to make an inspirational card for a change.  I hope I've achieved this but I'm not sure.  I used card and paper from pads I bought for £1.99 each from Lidl.  The card is 270gsm and there are 25 sheets and the paper is 135gsm and there are 50 sheets 2 of each colour.  The colours are bright and eye catching and I used the TH wall embossing folder twice and ripped a hole in the front one.  A piece of old shoelace is used for the embellishment.

hopefully the shoelace bow isn't girly
(hopefully) something inspirational inside
I'm trying to show the dimension on the card

Now it's your turn to show us your projects following the sketch.  CWWCC

Crafting When We Can Challenges #53 - Seasons (image, item, colours, sentiment)

Our wonderful sponsor for this Challenge is Krista from

We were able to choose our own images for this Challenge and I chose 
Sweet Oklahoma.  It seemed like an image I could use alot with the English weather we have.  Spring, Summer and Autumn birthdays jump into my mind. 

The Theme for Challenge 53 is

image, colours, item, sentiment

I used red, green and gold card stock from my stash and embossed the red and green card with a Sizzix Texturz plate, went around the edge with a Copic marker and matted it onto the gold card.  The image was coloured with Copics and Promarkers.  The raindrops were from a £shop but I can't remember which one.  They are body gems but work just as well on paper.  For my sentiments I used the dreaded peel offs, I don't know why some people turn their noses up at peel offs, I think they can serve a purpose the same as any craft item and it's where a lot of us start on our crafting adventure.

Hop over to the CWWCC blog and show us your Seasons themed creations.

Crafting When We Can Challenges #52 - Repeat Images

It's Challenge 52 over at Crafting When We Can Challenges so why don't you hop over and join in our new challenge.

Our wonderful Sponsor is
Kenny K

I was given the image Let's Party digi stamp and I immediately thought of John Travolta and Saturday Night Fever.  You can image him at the works Christmas party strutting his stuff or is that just my experience of people who have rulers and pens in their top pockets?

The theme is Repeated Image.  

I have used the image and created a background paper.  My card was assembled on CraftArist and then split into it's separate parts and printed off.  I then cut out and layered the pieces onto the card.  As usual the colours are rubbish on screen but in real life it looks quite good.  I printed it out onto pearlised card which I find is always difficult to photograph.

Hop over to CWWCC and leave us your repeat image projects.
