For this week's challenge from CD Sunday I thought I'd use this image from the Card Creations You're Never Too Old CD with images drawn by Sue Janson.

Crafters Companion Challenge 10

For the Crafter's Companion Challenge of Easter this month I've used stamps from the new Fairyopolis range. I started by stamping my own background with one of the message stamps and a small butterfly before stamping my fairy image onto neenah card and colouring with Copics.

CD Sunday Challenge - Wild Thing

Here is my interpretation for this week's CD Sunday Challenge of "Wild Thing"! I've used an image and backing papers from Peerless Designs Fairy Wishes CD.

The Stamp Man Challenge 18 - Mother's Day - Floral theme

The Stamp Man's Challenge this time is Mother's Day with a floral theme. I found this daffodill stamp by Serendipity Stamps languishing, unused, in the back of my craft cupboard so I decided it was about time it came out into the spring sunshine that we have had here this weekend. I used Promarkers to colour and some lovely Marianne dies for the embellishments.

Bah Humbug 11 - Metallic

The Bah Humbug Challenge at Humbug Hall this week is Metallic.

I've used gold holographic card for the base and then a layer of House Mouse images stamped and embossed in gold Wow embossing powder (marvellous stuff!). I've then die cut a circle of red satin mirri card and layered a gold die cut over the top. I've then stamped the House Mouse image again and coloured with Promarkers and added some glitter and glaze.  The greeting is stamped and embossed in gold and the stamp comes from Cuddly Buddly.

Cupcake 133 - Up in the Air with optional green

This week's challenge from Cupcake is Up in the Air and I've used this cute stamp of a little boy blowing bubbles.

Sir Stampalot March 2011 Challenge

The challenge from Sir Stampalot for March is Spring is in the Air with Green, Yellow and Blossom Pink.
I've used some Marianne dies for the flowers and leaves and one of my favourite stamps from Stampotique for this card. The greeting stamp is from Cuddly Buddly.

Bah Humbug 10 - Apertures

I used my Grand Calibur the largest bauble nestie and a prescored card to make the aperture in this card. I then edged the shape cut out with a Caligraphy pen. The smaller bauble image is stuck to the inside of the card having been stamped with a greeting in Versafine majectic blue and edged with tunbled glass distress ink. The stamped images are from the Crafters Companion Adorables range and I've used some Marianne dies for decoration.

So that's my card for Bah Humbug this week.

CD Sunday Challenge - Blue, Yellow and Brown

The challenge from CD Sunday this week is a nice one using three colours - Blue, Yellow and Brown. I've chosen an image and backing paper from Joanna Sheen's American Frontier CD. I've added beads and feathers to finish the design.

Bah Humbug 9 - Embossing

I found this image that I had previously printed out whilst looking for something else! I've had the lovely red ribbon that a dear friend gave me for ages and it goes perfectly with the poinsetta theme. I used my bug for the snow and flowers, so here is my Bah Humbug card for this week.

CD Sunday Challenge - Luck of the Irish

This week's challenge over at CD Sunday is The Luck of the Irish/St Patrick's Day. I've used an image from JS Victorian Christmas and MCS for the Shamrock circle.
