So the next challenge i tackled was Chris's 1 2 3 card challenge.  1 greeting of your choice, 2 embellishments and 3 layers.
I was going to use this for my mother-in-laws birthday but it was comandeered by my eldest daughter for her girlfriends birthday on Thurdsay.
Chris makes beautiful cards and was a teeny weeny bit apprehensive about doing a challenge but i think she has done a wonderful job.

Thanks for taking the time to look, take care. xx

challenges for July

This was the first challenge i have done for July.
Laraine set this Challenge for Artistic Document.
A digi. Blue & Brown, sepia photo, a frame, a flourish and a monogram letter.

i did a bit of a cheat and used 2 letters (artistic license?)  The photo is of my gorgeous girls Melissa and Cherie.  I used Scrapgirls Ever So Lovely & Being with you, bits from MZimms A touch of spring & Secrets of the past and CMDZ Amelie elements

Another great challenge Laraine, Laraine was our guest Designer for March.

Thanks for taking the time to look, take care. x

July is definately here

this month over at the members are the design team. Yes we've had a reversal of positions so to speak. They like throwing us for a loop every now and then.
This is the challenge i have done for the monthly challenge. Its Kaisers recipe book stand.  the challenge was to decorate something the will be used within the home. suggestions were a clock, pen/pencil holder, tissue box cover........So if you like the challenge or would like to see what the other girls have set as challenges just head over to Artistic Document.

For my example, i sanded and then base coated with dark brown paint then once that was dry i covered the pieces with crackle medium and then the final coat was white.  The flower was made up of a prima printed paper flower and some Lincraft tiny roses.  Then it was just a case of a bit of bling with kaisers pearl strips.
My stand now sits proudly in the corner of my kitchen.

Thanks for taking the time to look, take care. xx
