Not Scarecrow at all

My card this time for Crafting with an Attitude challenge.
The theme is Anything Goes.

The image is I have used is from Robyns Fetish and is called Scarecrow on a basket.

I had to use a sketch for a design as all my usual ideas up and left. The image is coloured with Polychromos pencils. 

I like this sketch because it uses lots of layers and I love layers. The greeting has been stamped. Plus a lovely little matching bow.

Bunny Love

This is a little late, but we've been away for a couple of days and only just got back.
This is my inspiration for the new challenge at Make my Monday.
The theme is Animal Antics.

I'm not looking forward to winter and cold weather so I decided to bring a bit of spring sunshine to the challenge. It's either late from spring gone or a wish of spring to come.

I've used a Lily of the Valley stamp and coloured it with alcohol pens.

There is a patterned paper background from Basic Gray.
I have added a doily to the top left corner and some daffodils which are really spring flowers.

The sentiment is from Stampin Up. Plus a matching yellow ribbon bow.

Pop over and see the lovely ideas made by my fellow team mates.

Mesh Flowers

Here is my DT card for the new challenge at

The theme this time round is
Autumn colours

The main focus on my card is the flowers that are made from a copper Mesh ribbon which has been formed to make flowers. 

I have made a background decorative panel by masking of a panel just off centre and colouring it with distress inks and then stamping over it with a word stamp. The flowers have been completed with some die cut leaves and large pearl brads in the centres.

Please pop over to the challenge blog and have a look at the other lovely inspiration made by my fellow DT members.

Strawberry Patch

It's Time for a new challenge over at 
And I am thrilled to say that after completing my guest DT spot for them they asked if I would like to stay on, and I was happy to say yes.

The theme this time round is
Something for a child

This is such a cute image of a little girl with her Strawberries. She is called Strawberry Girl and is from Mo Manning. I have die cut her out and layered the image on to Marianne die. The background is a nice coordinating stripy paper. And there is a little bow in the corner decorated with a strawberry button. For the sentiment I have used letter beads, which could be threaded onto a cord to make a bracelet for the recipient.

Lazy Days

It's time for a new challenge at
and the theme this time is
Lazy Days of Summer

For this card I have decided to use my Clarity Stamps. The back ground is done using 4 colours of distress inks then the tropical leaves has been stamped around the edge using green Archival.

The image has also been done using distress inks. The beach huts have been stamped in grey Archival and the tall grasses in brown Archival. I have coloured the beach huts with pencils. The word seaside is on a hand cut tag with die cut letter. I like the effect from using soft, hazy colours.
