Li'l red wagon.

I started with Kraft coloured card. I misted it using sugar maple then I printed on it with yellow paint and a lid to make the circles.
I trimmed it with washi tape and some gold braid. I then scattered the punched apples across the top and tied it with a gold organza bow.

I'm entering this at Li'l red wagon where the theme is fruit.

I have no idea why the text is highlighted in white. This is freshly typed.

Crafty calendar and Aud sentiments

Aud sentiments wants a sentiment. and Crafty Calendar challenge  wants lots of layers.

I've combined these two on this card.
The cat picture is paper tole. There are 5 layers including the washi tape. I'm including some packaging card that came with enamel dots.
The 2 buttons match the washi tape stars and the balls of wool.


At Use your stuff we are combining with doubletroublechallenge.

The criteria at Double trouble is plaid so I have made this bright and happy Santa card.
I used magic mount behind his pompon hat to make it 3D.
It is simple but I'm sure a child out there will love it.

Here's my layout for Use your stuff using frames and tags

We hope you will join in the fun.

Scrap room Freaky Fast Formula.

I chose older papers for this layout in brown tones. I then used cut off strips with colours from the photos to cross over the papers. I added a journaling box and tag and brad to complete the layout.

Elliebelles corner and Scrapping 4 fun

At Ellibelles corner they want something starting with B.
I've had this die cut for a while and decided to use it as it features Birthday. (B word).
I kept the background neutral. A few tiny rhinestones were added on some of the flowers.

At Scrapping4fun challenges (another DT I used to be on) , they have an anything goes challenge.

I've decided to scraplift this idea I saw on Pinterest.
I've turned mine 90 degrees.
I managed to use 3 curly paper clips and some mini words I own.

And close up of me holding the umbrella.

Tales from the craft room plus 2 Crafty Critter crazies

At Tales from the craft room they want cards for kids.

2craftycrittercrazies.  and Through the purple haze want animals.

I had 2 animal stickers from last month's kit that I hadn't used so decided to create a 7th birthday card using them.
The striped tag is from MME packaging I cut up.
The background paper, stripe and sentiment are a new Kaisercraft brand of papers I was given, named Morning Dew.

Cardz4guyz and let's create

At Cardz4guyz they are asking to be inspired by a Beatles song.
I've chosen Ticket to Ride.

I had made the tag already using scraps plus a wood veneer pair of glasses and some enamel dots.
I used a coloured brad to adhere it to the card.
Then I remembered I had some tickets, kept from a trip to a theme park years ago.
I used them as a strip across the card.

My great nephew's birthday is coming up and he's musical. I wonder if he will make the connection to the Beatles.

At Let's create challenges they asked for layers.

I had a Prima packaging here that actually featured words down the side, so I turned that into a tag and added it to the card. I've also used a blue brad, some ribbon, a typewriter sticker and a scrap of patterned paper from a layout I made the other day.

Hope you like it!

Jingle Belles and Unstampabelles.

At Jingle Belles this week they want peace on cards.

I started by fussy cutting a dove from an old Christmas card (recycling). I chose a fairly plain patterned paper and sentiment to go with the card.
At the last minute, I decided it needed some bling so put 2 gold stars around the sentiment.

My second card is for unstampabelles, where they want an aperture.
I made a tag and cut a circle in the centre.
I mounted it on a Christmas paper background then added a blue star plus some red bling and my sentiment.
