Colour my Heart challenge


I stuck to black white and beige/kraft on this card. I used music paper for my background  then a black doiley, beige patterned paper, sequins, washi tape and striped ribbons in black and white then my sentiment. 

Because of the sequins it looks quite festive. 

I'm entering it at Colour me heart challenge.

Cardz 4 galz and Make my Monday

 I've made another 2 cards for different challenges.

This one is for Cardz 4 galz where they want blues. I stamped Super Mum on a sky blue card then cut out the circle. The turquoise striped paper is my background then the blue rhinestone flowers add another colour.

My other card is for Make my monday where they want ice creams or cocktails.

This card has 2 cocktail glasses (fussy cut) plus strips of ribbon diagonally.

Seize the birthday

 At Seize the birthday they asked for Fruit.

I found this compote of fruit and decided to go vintage.

I've used aqua with some antique lace from my grandmother. I inked with pinecone colour along the scalloped edge to add more "age" to my card.

It's my sister's birthday on 20th so I thought I'd give this to her.

Li'l red wagon and Double D challenges

 At Li'l red wagon this week they asked us to use something we love.

One of my 2 favourite colours is yellow. I made this card with that in mind.

I've used lace on the border plus 2 yellow flowers and yellow enamel dots. It needed something else so I added faux stitching around the number and diagonally across the card.


At Double D challenge they want a nautical card.

I found a lighthouse card which I added to a red and white background. I've added some blue pearls as my embellishment.

Make my Monday and Inspiration station.

 I had both ice cream paper plus die cuts of ice creams so I made this card.

 I'm entering it at Make my Monday.


At Inspiration station they have this photo.

Looking through my papers for a beach picture I found this one with thongs and board shorts on it. 

It seems perfect for a summer holiday card.

Culla's ride at Challenge Yourself

 At Challenge YOUrself they want stitching on your layout.

As my sewing machine is set up I decided to use it.

I've made a double layout this time featuring a horse ride we did in Norfolk Island.

We sat in the wagon while the horses pulled us up and down hills to a picnic spot. It was a fun day.

My sewing is the 2 big circles on each of the layouts. That's me in middle of left layout.

My time to craft

 At My time to craft they want flowers for summertime.

I've used a final strip of paper from my Counterfeit kit plus ribbon and a pink rose on this card.

One of my "crafty" friends turns 70 very soon so this is for her.
