Back to School - Sparkles Challenge

Hello Lovelies,

I am pleased to announce that I am now part of the wonderful Sparkles Monthly Challenge Design Team! I joined a couple of months ago but haven't been able to design anything until now.

This month's challenge is Back to School.



I made this card with the Popcorn the Bear Kids Collection CD which my lovely crafting friend Suzanne sent me as a present. It could not have come at at more apt time. Thank you, Suzanne <3

The card uses decoupage with matching backing paper, layered with plain red card. Embellished with red polka dot ribbon from American Crafts and recycled buttons. The sentiment I made on my computer and backed onto gold mirror card.

The prize for this challenge is a $10 from DisDigiStamps. Hope you join in! Xx

Food Glorious Food

Ok, so I am getting a bit more into the Christmas spirit now and made another card for the CD Sunday Challenge *Food Glorious Food* theme.



I got out my Christmas stash and found this decoupage sheet featuring a  gorgeous image of Guinea pigs backing a cake in the kitchen. I used Forever Friends retro Christmas disc for the backing paper which is my CD contribution. I've added a bit of sparkle to the holly leaves in the background, used a die cut in green for added foliage and some red gems. I love the little red polka dot bow from Dovecrafts.

Hope you like it. Thanks for visiting - any comments appreciated. Xx


Gruffies & Guests - Anything Goes with Option of Boys

The new Gruffies & Guests Challenge has launched with "Anything Goes with Option of Boys". Here is my design card and my first Christmas card of the year!


The card uses the House Mouse Triple CD (Christmas Disc) and incorporates 3 different background papers as well as plain red card. The image has been glittered with my favourite iridescent glitter, embellished with snowflakes and gems. Very cute!!


The prize this time is AMAZING. Our sponsor for this challenge is Petal Lu who makes beautiful handmade flowers and has kindly donated a £10 lucky dip prize. Xx
