Morning lovely ones, back again with another challenge card, this week it is CHRISTINE that is hosting, and as the OPTIONAL twist she chose, use Ribbon or Twine...we are happily sponsored by Crafty Ribbons, you can find prize details HERE...
OK, I made a card that is extremely similar to yesterdays post, but it's really not, details are different sooo not working a scam here..lol....
The papers are from Paper Designer Pad...very lush, flowers and chippies I bought before the closure at LLC, ribbon and twine stash and I have used the same skeleton leaves as yesterdays, if you want them the link is on yesterdays post...
Isn't that paper just gorgeous, not put any verse or sentiment on as you can see..
Once again that's it for another week I think, feel quite exhausted..lol...will try find a challenge or two...

CraftyCatz challenge #418..ATG


Sorry I am so late with my post today, just one of those things...
I hope your all looking forward to yet another Bank Holiday weekend, think this is the last til August...not sure though...ANYWAYS...
T his week our really lovely AuntieSue has chosen the optional twist, which is
CHRISTMAS....[...yikes...] you can join us HERE
We have a fab sponsor once again who also provided the team with images, big thank you for that...
and you can shop Bugaboo images HERE
My card was made using my own Bugaboo image
As you can see it's super CAS, very easy and quick to make if you want a card in a hurry, used flex markers to add some colour..and a touch of glitter and shine spray.
Think this is a better picture, you can see the image now without all that sunlight bouncing off..

So that's it for today, have a fab weekend..
See you all soon...xxxx

CraftyCatz challenge #417 ATG, and a Royal Wedding day...yipppeeeeee...



Good morning, hope everyone is really well and enjoying the lovely weather, fingers crossed the forecast is right for the 'BIG' day tomorrow...so excited...we all love Prince Harry and it's so good to see him happy, I will be glued to the telly I can promise you...
*******************
Right, the challenge this week is our usual ATG with an OPTIONAL twist which our lovely Nick chose, she made a sketch, all on her own...lol
WE HAVE A LOVELY SPONSOR AGAIN THIS WEEK WHO WANTS TO GIVE ONE LUCKY WINNER A $15 GV...
Here is my card..
Sponsor image used 'Birdie' so cute, coloured with Flexmarkers, paper pad is Beautiful Day bought from the Ribbon Girl a while back, ribbon from stash.
I don't think I got this card quite right, either printed the image to small or made the card to big for her...but retrospect is a wonderful thing...
