Card for Dad

This is a card using a digi download by Debbie Moore of the Crafty Pad that I bought because I wanted an aeroplane and didn't have one and this is cute. I used the coloured image for speed and decoupaged the plane. You get both coloured and uncoloured for 99p which is good I think. Isn't this so cute? Shapes cut with Nestabilities labels Eight, letters cut using Sizzix Embosslit dies, paper by Papermania and foiled greeting. Blue card from Trago Mills pick and mix Papermill I think.

Quirky Crafts Challenge 24 - flowers

Challenge 24 is Flowers over on Quirky Crafts challenge blog. The challenge is sponsored by Crafty Ribbons so the winner will win some bags of ribbons and we can all use ribbon. My card is one I made for Mother's day. I used the free stamp that came with DoCraft's Creativity magazine (can't remember the rabbit's name but it is in the Daisy and Dandelion range) and coloured the image with Promarkers, then die cut with Spellbinders labels nine, and mounted that on DCWV pocket full of posies - I just love this paper pad.

I used Crafty Ribbons ribbon on my card, and Sizzix embosslits alphabet for the letters finished off with Prima blooms.

Sorry I have been AWOL for a week, but I have been having problems with my computer which may be a virus or a serious hardware problem but I don't like it.

Also sorry Maddy I meant to publish your comment and reject the dodgy ones I had but think yours got rejected by mistake, will try and copy it from my email once I can get all my email again - grrrrrr!

Quirky Crafts Challenge 23 buttons the bear

Challenge 23 over on Quirky Crafts Challenge blog is "buttons". It is also sponsored by Crafty Ribbons, and the hearts ribbon is from them so it was appropriate to use it.
This is my second example.
The bear and moon and stars are cut with an Accucut Zipeslim die, the scalloped circle is a Sizzix die, buttons, charm and brads from stash. The word Baby was written with Adirondack 3d paint (also used on the man in the moon) on an acrylic plaque from Graphicus. Sadly the bear had his nose squashed while it was still wet, and the card suffered another accident, you can just see a bit of red on the back - it got put down on the test moon with red ink cheek very wet, oh dear!

So enter your projects with buttons on and win a load of great ribbons.

Quirky Crafts Challenge 23 Buttons the dog
