Jeremy Fisher Sparkles DT

Not that I have had a chance to do much crafting but every chance I do get seems to be revolving around Christmas so for a break from it has been brilliant to do my DT card for Sparkles Monthly  Challenge with the theme "Autumn Colours" which has started today. I have raided my stash for this one!

For this 6 x 6 card, I have used some Jeremy Fisher decoupage from the Crafter's Companion Beatrix Potter range with matching backing papers that are very autumnal. I used kraft card for matt and layering, some golden yellow ribbon and some cute little fabric flowers that if my memory serves me correctly are from Hobby House. The kraft butterflies are embellishments from Hobbycraft. I have stamped the birthday sentiment onto some kraft card which I really like.

The prize this time is absolutely fabulous - a £10 voucher from Crafty Ribbons. Wouldn't mind that myself...

Hope to see your entry - have fun and join in Xx

Trick or Treat? - Gruffies & Guests DT

Hi all, it's been a while since I have blogged. Mostly because I have been so poorly recently and I am not getting much time at my craft desk as usual. I have been doing other things such as cross stitch recently, which I have also enjoyed very much for many years now.

Here is my latest DT card for Gruffies & Guests Challenge Blog which the theme this time is Anything Goes with the Option of Halloween. Sooo the big dilemma I have had is how do you make a Gruffie, Hopper or House Mouse scary? Well, I didn't succeed!

This is my first ever Halloween card and it is turned out very cute NOT scary one bit! Typical me, really isn't it! I have used this adorable image from the Gruffies and Happy Hoppers paper crafting CD of two Gruffie trick or treating but  one is upset to have dropped her treats. So sweet. I have used a backing paper from the CD and used black card too matt and layer. I have used sticky letters on black card and added them with sticky fixers. I have also added gorgeous fabric flowers with gem centre. Then added a cute little bow. I also added purple glitter to the wings of the Gruffie costume. Why? Because I had some new purple glitter glue I wanted to use...

I encourage you to have a go at this challenge - the prize available is $10 voucher from Di's Digi Stamps. 

Hope to see your entry soon! xx
