Crafty Sentiments and try it on Tuesday challenge

At Crafty sentiments it is anything goes.

I've made a birthday card, they always come in handy.
My sentiment was wet embossed with gold and I used a light tawny brown ink to colour the background.

My next is for Try it on Tuesday where the theme is flowers.
I had a piece of beautiful foiled flowers paper so used that on the left hand side along with another neutral (with a hint of orange) on the right hand side.
 My sentiment is for a retiring teacher.

Here is what I did.

Mojo Monday

Here's the latest sketch for Mojo Monday.
I'm making a second lot of Easter cards since all my original ones sold last week at the local florist.
I have no rabbits so used some lambs from Jolee's Boutique.
All the ingredients for this card were on my desk ready to go.

I matted my lamb looking over a fence on green cardstock, then used a glitter frame from my counterfeit kit plus a tiny bird chipboard that I coloured with liquid pearl.
I chose 2 co-ordinating green papers as my background.
                                                 I added my sentiment and it was done.

Like many of Mojo Monday's sketches I can see me using this one again.

If you give a crafter a cookie & others.

At If you give a crafter a cookie, this is the picture.
I've paper pieced 2 ladybirds from purple spotted paper and drawn on feelers using liquid pearls.
Hopefully this qualifies.


My next card is for a few challenges.
I've used the same background.

I'm entering it at:
Cute card Thursday-Spring
Moving along with the times-bugs and butterflies.

Scrap room challenges (2)

Here's the Freaky Fast formula recipe for March.

Yesterday I bought a scrapbooking kit for $4. It had 6 papers plus alphas and chipboard.
I've used it for the above and below challenges.
For the FFF I used a small photo of a pheasant that we saw recently at a bird park.

The 12 inch and 10 inch strips go down the centre of the page and the 3 inch square is the brown one on the right, tucked under the photo mat.
I added a few smaller embellishments to complete the layout.

Next is the sketch
and my layout to go with that is this one.

Lasting Memories

Lasting Memories has an Irish themed montage to inspire us.
We saw many of the items in the photo, but this particular ride came to mind straight away.

I've used a bella paper, inked the frame white and embossed the tree after inking it green. I've added colours to match the photos.
The tag on top left was Kraft that has been misted with red and the journalling strips are flocked.
A very tactile layout!

This was the year my daughter and I went to Europe.
We went on a ride on this jaunting cart through a forest in Killarney.
It was so much fun.

ABC Christmas challenge.

ABC Christmas challenge has an E F or G challenge and G was glitz.

I had a paper featuring a Christmas tree so added rhinestones to look like ornaments all over the tree.
My sentiment is small and neat so as not to overshadow the tree.
The photo looks like the rhinestones are blue but they're a jade green.
