Farmquest grocery game challenge.


I've made this card by fussy cutting around apricots from an old picture dictionary. I matched the striped paper and my sentiment. Added a couple of star brads as a finishing off and here you have it.

I'm entering this at Farmquest grocery game challengeFarmquest grocery game challenge where Aisle One is produce.

Cupcake Inspiration

 The new challenge at Cupcake Inspirations is a colour challenge 

I've made a card using these 3 colours

There isn't much yellow, but the pineapple stands out on the drink. I chose not to have a sentiment as I'm not sure how it will be used yet. Probably a birthday card though.

The card concept


At the card concept they want Red, white and blue. 

I used a nautical themed journal card I have that features a lighthouse. As you can see, I matted it with blue then had another white layer and finally the red background.

 I was inspired by the lantern in the picture!

Li'l red wagon

 Today I've made a simple card for  little red wagon (

They want one -layer cards.

I used a peachy coloured card and stamped Happy Birthday. Next, I used a glittery frame I had and placed it around the stamping. I then added my worm which is also orange.

It could be used for a child or an adult.

Paper Issues sketch


This is also using papers from my Counterfeit kit.

I doodled the daisies and fussy cut the flowers that stick out.

It was for a sketch at Paper Issues. 

Daring Cardmakers

 At Daring Cardmakers they want male cards.

These 2 pictures from an old children's annual have been hanging around my craft room for ages, so I decided to use them.

The 2 boys loading up a sled or toboggan with logs in the snow certainly suggest winter.

In this card there's a good old-fashioned game of blind mand bluff.
