The theme for the new challenge over at
is Anything but a Card.

Thats a good excuse for me to get messy again.

I've made a canvas which is just full of texture and colour. The lacy butterfly is a Tattered Lace die.

There are bits of wood, tiny stone chips and corrugated cardboard which has been painted and distessed.

Flowers, leaves and woolly fibres.  I do enjoy getting messy.

Pop over to the challenge blog and see what my fellow team mates have made to inspire you.

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.
