Wedding card


Hubby and I have been invited to an Indian wedding. I'm very excited. It is sure to be different and colourful.  The wedding invite was paperless and gold and red.

I've made them a wedding card and used the invitation colours as a starting point.

The flower is one by Manor House and has lots of texture and dimension. You can maybe just see the very pretty cream leaf that I have added.

I'm entering this at Soul Scrappers' CC75 challenge which is anything goes card.

Thanks for looking.

Two birthday cards

Hi everyone,

I've done a card for challenge CC74 at Soul-scrappers.  It is a sketch challenge.
I needed a card for my son's best friend who is turning 20 today. I quite like the bold red, black and white colour scheme that I chose.
I've also done female card with a flower in white and blue.

Have a great day.

Tea in the Garden watercolour card

Unstampabelles challenge:

August - Tea in the Garden TWIST Watercolour Wonders

Here is my card.

I had these water colour paints, brand new and unused.  I decided to use them on some yellow floral patterned paper.

I love tea, in particular Twinings tea. The 10 packs have a delightful pattern inside. I've used a different colour pack before. I chose a panel with a saying on it to use on my card.

The little teacup is from a Daphne's Diary magazine. They often have lovely images for projects to make.  Lastly, I added a die-cut which I have cut in half and used the other half on another card. 3 brown pearls as a final embellishment on the butterfly and I'm done.

What will you do?  Doesn't have to be a card. Can be a layout or something else? Just remember, don't use stamping.

Thanks for looking.

Bass Clef - Scrapbooking inspiration

Look at this fantastic challange that Archiscraps has for us this month.

Music is a favourite hobby of mine.

Here is the inspo pic:

Isn't it grand?

This is the Country Music hall of fame in Nashville.
As you can see it is in the shape of a bass clef.

Image may contain: 1 person

Here is my layout. I am  certain you can see my inspiration from the photo quite clearly.  

What will you do? Get your entry started now.

Are you surprised I didn't do a bass layout?  I am!


New challenge using shapes

There's a new challenge at ARTastic this month. Here is the art inspiration and the criteria is shapes.

No photo description available.
Grace Crowley with Abstract

I have chosen to use the pink, lilac and white colours from the art piece.
My shapes are squares, hearts and circles.  I've used Creative Memories punches to create the border on the left side of the page.

Hope you can join in.

Stencils and Sprays


Time for a new challenge.  Check out Unstampabelles if you like playing with mist sprays and stencils.

Check out what I did.

I love the colour combo of crisp white, purple and green.  I always love to try to pick out colours that I can highlight from my photo.

People have told me that one of their favourite features of mine is my smile so I decided to do a page about it.

The stencil I have used is a mini doily. I've then cut up that doily and made it into a flower.

What will you make?

Use Paint on your Project

ARTastic July challenge 2019

 Rita Angus (New Zealand) with "Cass"

Above is the inspo painting to use.

This is what I came up with:

No photo description available.

I've used a circle stencil that has different size circles with yellow and white paint.

I drew my inspiration from the colours in the painting.

This layout is quite abstract compared to what I normally do.  I wanted to have a sense of movement as I just loved the fish in the photo.

Go to this post at ARTastic to see what the other DT did.

You can combine this challenge with 2 others if you want to.

Give it a go.
