Banners & Balloons at Incy Wincy


Good morning quick post from me to tell you about the start of a new challenge at Incy Wincy where this week we want to see Banners & Balloons on your projects. We are sponsored this week by the fantastic Bugaboo Stamps. A CAS card from me today as time is short as we had a fantastic few days with family staying last week and we are off out and about for a few days this week as both me and hubby are off work. I've used Mouse with Balloons from our sponsor coloured him with my pro markers adding glossy accents to the balloons. The paper is from an old Basic Grey pad and i cut the banner under the sentiment from some blue paper in the same pad. The candy buttons are also from Basic Grey not sure I like them dotted randomly, why is it they look great on other peoples cards dotted in a random pattern but they never look right on mine think it's cause I'm a bit OCD about everything balancing!


Don't forget we still have our DT call going we would love some of you to come and join our happy and relaxed team you can find all the details here.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
The Crazy Challenge - Cute Little Animal

Good morning today's post is for the new challenge at Incy Wincy which this week is sponsored by Meljen's and is a Colour Inspiration challenge, here's the colours we want to see on your projects.


I have used this cute image from our sponsor for my card I coloured the image with my pro markers adding stickles to the centre of the flowers. I printed an extra image so I could layer the flower on the pot. I added a few tiny yellow gems around the image. The paper is from an old pad sorry can't remember the name and layered onto some dark brown card.

S J Crafts August Challenge


Today's card is one I made for Aimee and her friend Ella May  to give to their friend at school who was going back to Korea to live. It also fits in with the new challenge which went live yesterday over at S J Crafts where this month we want to see projects with the theme of Holidays / Travel and also for you to use something new and something old.


 So for my card my something new was this cute digi from Zlatoena's Designs called Travel Bunny  I coloured him with promarkers adding some glossy accents to his googles. I decided to paper piece the plane slightly fiddly but worth it I think all the papers are from Prima Hello Pastel collection. I added a banner to the back of the plane with some paper twine. My something old was my Fiskers Threading water border punch which I think is the first border punch I got. 


I decided to make a cross over card so I could put a photo I took of the three of them playing in my garden a few days before she had to go home. On the reverse of the insert I printed a poem which I thought was fitted the occassion.
 " Our friendship with you is special
And we hope it never ends
Even though you'll be miles and miles away
Let's stay the best of friends."
 I haven't put a photo of the reverse of the insert as it has our address and Ella Mays address on it so that they can all keep in touch.
Don't forget to hop over to the blog a check out the rest of the DT fantastic projects.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
Crafting For All Seasons - Feature A Creature

Word Play at Country View Challenges


Whoops blogger strikes again this post was scheduled to go this morning at 6 but for some reason blogger decided not to post it perhaps it was having a lie in? Any way onto the reason for today's post last month I was lucky enough to be picked as the winner at Country View Challenges where I won a £20 voucher to spend on goodies from the shop and they also I asked me if I would like to be GDT this month, I said yes of course although I was a bit worried that my work wasn't good enough as the DT over their do some amazing things with inks and things. Here's my effort for the new challenge, Word Play  so anything that involves quotes, sayings etc but excluding sentiments such as 'Happy birthday', 'New home', 'Congratulations' and the like, which starts today.
I decided I would alter this Kraft notebook which I picked up at work for 50p in the recent sale, what i didn't think about was that at A5 size most of my papers would be to small whoops. After hunting through my very old stack of 12 x 12 papers I pulled out 3 sheets of Fancy Pants Dancing girl which I cut up to create my layers. I inked the edges of the polka dot piece slightly with Weathered Wood distress ink.


 I've used this cute owl again from The Stamping Chef and coloured him up with my pro-markers adding glossy accents to his glasses. I typed up this quote on the computer and put a squiggly frame around it and then printed it onto some of the DP. I fussy cut the frame out and then used a paper clip to attach it to the notebook. I added some pieces of ribbon the the spiral bind on the side of the book.


Don't forget to pop over to the challenge blog and have a look at some of amazing work for the DT and maybe join in yourselves.

I would like to enter my notebook into the following challenges:
City Crafter - Animal Magic
Try It On Tuesdays - Things With Wings
