play time

The above card was made for a Creata challenge.  The theme was 'based on a song' and I chose 'bed of roses' by Bon Jovi.  The card is an 8x8 .  I added red Creata metallic card and used Creata heart stamps that were coloured using three different reds.  The image is from the East wind.  again coloured in pro-markers using minimal colours.

The adorable image above is from Polkadoodles  I have coloured the image with pro-markers.  I have used Creata mirror card and papers, I chose clashing colours of bright green and turquoise.  The baubles and snowman are Creata dies and the sentiment is from Sam Poole.
I will be entering this card into the  polkadoodles challenge  x

mm card kits?

Ok I know a lot of you crafter's are probably shouting at your laptops now... but, card kits don't mean someone is cheating.  They can add their own embellishments, change the style and design of the card... the list goes on.

I've used the following for some cards made for charity, these mainly use the items from the kit, others to follow will be used alongside other products.

This particular set is from Hobbyhouse

It can be a fun set for both the novice card maker and the pro.. so don't be a card kit snob... we still have time to get inky :)

Polkadoodle clash of colours

mmmm colours that shouldn't go together... well for my entry I chose pink and orange.  Unlike me I went for the subtle shades with just a touch of vibrant.

The papers, sentiment and flowers are all taken from Polkadoodle discs.  The flowers were then embossed to give a bit more texture to them.  I added pearls and gems for a bit more detailing and used a tonic die for punched detail.

Hope this quick make puts a smile on your face .

This will be entered into the  Polkadoodles challenge.

A rap to show how the crafty army are missing their Carley Sunshine funshine hour on c and c

Yo! momma T in da house...
I don't apologize for keepin' it real
I gotta go with how I feel
All these thursday gigs we is missing
lots of boo's and hissing
It ain't a battle the army will leave
we keep on doing and using stuff we believe
taking a break from da gloomy fog
gotta go enter Carley's challenge blog
We give so much when on da box
all the entertainment with our commander rocks
we turned martin p into resident mc
we made ya laugh out loud til ya wanna pee
we brought the carry on couple of Carley and Nige...
anything to entertain and we oblige..
Mr Creata hear the army's voice
More shows soon is da choice.
we are proud and getting loud,,, hear us shout
we don't want a craft draught.
bank accounts gone quite healthy
purses feeling quite wealthy
We so need to spend...
More Creata goodies ya need to send.
yeah, it's urgent yeah there's a rush
we ain't responsible for a withering floral bush.
Respect peace out x to all crafters

Sisters of Craft new challenge

Another month gone by so fast.  So happy with all the fantastic crafter's that have been joining in the fun so far .

The sponsor for this months 'anything goes' challenge is the fantastic Scrapper's Delight. The image I've chosen to work with is here

Yep a Christmas card, thought I'd better make a start on them.  I used a cream 8x8 card blank and layered up with kraft card and christmas papers from Hobby House (Nordic collection).  The edges were distressed and slightly folded over.  I also used some of the corrugated card from Creata direct for extra texture and used one of their reindeer dies.  The image itself was coloured with pro-markers keeping the colours minimal.  String and buttons were from my craft stash.

I look forward to seeing your entries over at ;

Why not pop on over and see what my fellow design team members have created xx
