Let Have Some Cake

Good Morning,

My Crafty Friends, Visitors and Follower,

Today we are starting our first challenge of the year
 229 over at :-


The challenge theme is

Food & Drink

and its been chosen by Jane

The girls have been working hard to
create designs to inspire you, so please
take a moment to view their work and
if you can, leave them a comment.

I have chosen to use an image from the cd

You can purchase it and others by clicking on 
the link   HERE.  There are also some great
freebies too,  so well worth checking it out.

The prize for the winner will be
2 digi downloads from the Ooh La La Creations Store

Details
1. Started with an 8 x 8 card and matted this one of the 
papers from the Cd.

2. Another of the papers was then added and this is one
of rolled corner papers ( I love these).

3. Next I added two paper doilies and on top of them I
adhered gold mirri card that I embossed and rounded
the corners.

4. The topper was printed off (the frame is also part
of the topper) and I then adhered flat onto the mirri
card.

5. I then took another piece of gold card, die cut and
from the internet I printed the cakes,sandwiches and
teapots.  These were then cut out and adhered to the
card using foam pads.

To complete I added cream roses, gold gems and die
cut the sentiment Cherish the Moment again from
gold mirri card.

So there you have it, my take on the Theme,
looking forward to seeing what you come up with.

Good Morning,

My Crafty Friends, Visitors and Follower,


Today we are starting our first challenge of the year
 226 over at :-


The challenge theme is

BIRTHDAY

and its been chosen by PAULINE

The girls have been working hard to

I have chosen to use an image from the cd

 a male, seeing as I don't have many in my stash.

You can purchase it and others by clicking on

freebies too,  so well worth checking it out.

DETAILS

1. Card size is 8 x 8 and to this I have added a backing
paper printed off the cd Yesterdays Memories.

2. From the cd I also printed off the sheet containing the
topper and smaller toppers. I printed out another
backing paper but only used the part containing the
horses heads as I wanted this as a border.

3. Mounted the topper the two smaller toppers and the
panel onto gold mirri card. The large topper was
secured with foam tape but the rest were adhered
flat as I wanted the centre topper to stand proud.

To complete again using gold mirri card I die cut
the horse shoes and the Happy Birthday added
gold Tonic Nuvo Drops to both corners and there
you have it, I think a great male birthday card.

You have plenty of scope with this challenge as the
birthday can be for any gender or age.  Looking

then inked around the edges before adhering to the

Pals Together

Good Morning,

My Crafty Friends, Visitors and Follower,

Today we are starting our first challenge of the year
 223 over at :-


The challenge theme is

EMBOSSING

and its been chosen by JULIE

The girls have been working hard to
create designs to inspire you, so please
take a moment to view their work and

You can purchase it and others by clicking on 
the link   HERE.  There are also some great
freebies too,  so well worth checking it out.

The prize for the winner will be
2 digi downloads from the Ooh La La Creations Store


DETAILS

1. The card size is 5 x 7 fancy edged and I first layered it
with kraft card that has been embossed using the Crafters
Companion e/folder Leaf Vein and also I have rounded
the corners.  Before sticking down onto the card I
wrapped a piece of lemon satin ribbon across the centre.

2. Next layer is one one of the patterned papers that
accompanies the topper and again corners rounded.

3. Still using kraft card and the same e/folder I cut
a smaller frame and adhered to the card at a slight
angle. Another of the backing papers but this time
I also embossed this before adhering again at at
slight angle.

4. Another piece of kraft card also embossed and
them I added the cat topper to the this again at
an angle.

To complete I added a lemon satin bow, some silver
swirls and the words PALS ( as they really do look
like little pals all playing away together).
