Pollycraft DT call number 2

Here is the other image I used for the Pollycraft DT call. Gina and I saw this box here and decided we wanted to make something similar. I have no idea what I am going to use it for yet, but it would make a pretty good gift if filled with card making things, i.e. stamped images in the pockets & brads & things in the drawers. I am really looking forward to spring arriving here, so I thought I would make this in “springy” colours. Allsorts Challenge  Crazy 4 Challenges, Secret Crafter, Crafty Cardmakers and Incy Wincy designs Challenge this week all wanted Spring themed projects and Creative inspirations wanted anything but a card. One Stop Craft theme was “let it Shine” and as my box is quite bright I figured it counts ­čÖé

Pollycraft DT call

Paula over at Pollycraft is giving away 2 free images this week and she has a design team call. Pollycraft challenge is going to be run every week, which is great news. Digital images are so versitile as you can do so much with them and Pollycraft’s digi’s are just sooo cute. I loved this image of Codi and knew what papers to use with it immediately. I paper pieced & coloured her digitally with papers that my friend Gina had made for her daughter Megan. Dutch Dare Card Challenge this week have a picture for inspiration and Charisma Cardz Challenge wanted something for the kiddies (ok so this is for the older kiddies but it still fits lol)

Pollycraft meets Truly Scrumptious and Fab n Funky

I needed to make a birthday card for my youngest sons best friend (not girlfriend you understand lol). He informed me that she likes Hello Kitty, so out came the sizzix die I got last year, but hadn’t used. Pollycraft Monday challenge this week is sparkly things, the sketch at Truly Scrumptious is another keeper and I got the chance to use my new punch that the boys got me for Mothers Day, so the card is good for the Fab ‘n’ Funky Challenge this week of “Its all New”

Stamptacular Sunday

I needed something to hold my images that I have coloured and cut ready to go onto cards. (well something better than the take-away box they are in at the moment!) I set about making an accordian file out of some spare odd envelopes I had and then I saw the sketch on Stamptacular Sunday this week and thought what a perfect way to decorate the front of it, so here it is:

All Better Now!

First of all I have to say sorry to anyone who ended up on my blog at the end of last week, major panic attack I had, I was hijacked!!! I didnt notice anything until Saturday and then I had to find a way to fix it, which I have now done by installing a backup. The moral of this story is BACK UP YOUR BLOGS!

Enough of that, after the panic I set about looking for challenges to complete so One Stop Craft wanted stitching, over on Stamptacular Sunday the theme was You and Me and Baby Makes Three! Throw in the sketch from Sunday Sketch and Stamp and you end up with something like this (well I do anyway)

Pixie Dust Studio Pixie Challenge meets Crazy 4 challenges

Sadly my little birdhouse wasnt quite big enough to hold all the paper flowers I wanted to put in it, so I just had to make something else to hold the leftovers. Along comes a 3D challenge over at Pixie Dust Studio, and a paper piercing challenge at Crazy 4 Challenges what great timing for making a set of drawers ­čÖé

Isn’t it funny …

…how ideas suddenly sneak up on you. Sometimes they turn out like the picture in your head, and sometimes they go in totaly the opposite direction! This one turned out exactly like I wanted it to, Paper Makeup Stamps had this wonderful picture for inspiration (love to know where it came from) and Paper Garden Projects wanted a farewell to winter project. I can tell you am so sick fed up of our weather, I just had to do a nice spring type card and here it is:
