School Dayz challenge

 Well I've been unwell with a weird rash on my foot that has caused concern as it kept getting higher up my leg. Numerous doctors visits with medication and then get sent to the hospital and from there to a preferred clinic because there was a 7 hour wait and because it wasn't considered urgent it meant that I would probably keep getting bumped back to accomodate more urgent cases. Anyway to cut a long story short, still don't know what it was and am sort of on the mend!

So...... a late post for 613 Avenue Create Challenge blog. Hope you have popped over and joined in the challenge. We are an Anything Goes challenge with an Optional twist which this month is "School Dayz". I've gone with the optional twist and here is my card......

I still have another post to organise so will just leave you with the encouragement of joining in the fun of the challenge this month. Take time to pop into all the DT blogs and leave us a comment.

Thanks for looking, stay safe in these uncertain times.

Hugs, Sandy DT

Watercoloured Sunflowers

 Hi everyone, a new challenge has started at 613 Avenue Create and this month our Optional twist is : Watercolour.

I've chosen to use the twist for my card and here it is.....

Recipe: SU Early Espresso cardstock and White cardstock from stash, Sunflower stamp from freebie stamp set - The Cafe Riviera and Sentiment is from a freebie set also, The Music and Dance Collection. Tiny gold bling, Watercolour pens (used on a clear stamp block with a waterbrush) D/S tape roller. The inside has a piece of white cardstock with the sunflower stamped partially on the right hand bottom corner and left uncoloured.

Well that's me, am heading off for a very short holiday with my daughter, son-in-law and two granddaughters. The weather is not great but so far it has not rained. Heading towards the coast but not sure whether we will get a walk  along the beach. Depends if the rain stays away for at least part of our trip.

Come over and check out the challenge blog and enter some of your creations. You're sure to get some inspiration from the DT creations and also from all the other entrants too.

Thanks for stopping by, please leave a comment if you have time.

Lady in Yellow

 It's been cold and wet lately, but the sun is shining so there are spots of warmth outside out of the wind. It's time for the latest challenge at 613 Avenue Create. An Anything Goes challenge blog with an Optional Twist. I've opted to create my card using the optional twist which is to Use Paper Piecing on your creation. Love this - just need to choose something that isn't too fiddly to achieve, lol.

Here is my card........

Recipe: SU Basic Black and Hello Honey cardstock and White cardstock from stash, Kanban stamps (added a little shoe on the inside as well). Sentiment from SU. DP from stash, a pretty yellow with a subtle white floral on it - it's actually a bit brighter than it shows here in the photo. Also the yellow cardstock is a bit too bright in the photo, has more of a mellow, warmer hue. I used stitched rectangle dies from Paper Rose and 3 different SU circle punches

My husband and I are going on a club motorcycle ride today (as long as it's not pouring down with rain) so just a quick reminder to go check out the challenge blog and to let you know we love seeing all the wonderful entries. So get your mojo into gear and come and join in the challenge.

If your popping in here on my blog, please leave a comment. Would love to get some feedback.

Heart shaped Easel card

 Hello, greetings from Adelaide...hope all is well in your part of the world. Things are difficult at times with Covid restrictions. We are lucky here in Sth. Australia. Very few cases and most of those are coming from returning residents from overseas, so we are relatively free to move around but still some restrictions on numbers and we have to make sure we sign in to shops and venues so they can use contact tracing if necessary. 

I'd better get on and talk about the new challenge that is starting at Simply Create Too this month. The theme is "Anything but Square or Rectangle" I've chosen to make a heart shaped Easel card. I started off making a black card base and then added red die cuts on top, except for one the top of the card base, so you can see the black when the card is open.

Here is my creation......

Recipe: SU black, red cardstock, White cardstock from stash, DP from stash, Stamps are from freebie set The Feathered Friends and a set by Artworks that I picked up years ago from a cheap shop. I've used SU circle and scalloped circle punches, Copic Markers, Memento Tuxedo black inkpad, pink pearls. double sided tape roller and foam dots.

Well, that's it from me. Love to see your creations, so pop in and check out all the DT inspiration and add an entry or two. 

Thanks for stopping by, please leave a comment if you have time.

Beep, Beep... I'm Little But Loud!

Robots are universal.....not only do the kids like them but quite a few grown ups like to play with them as well, lol. In fact, there are many sophisticated and complex versions available on the market.  My card today for the new challenge at Get Creative challenges features a cute robot. There is no twist for this challenge, just an Anything Goes theme. Our sponsors are - All Dressed UpColour of Love and Goha Stamps.

Well, time to share my card.....

Recipe: SU Black cardstock for base, white card from stash for mattes and diecuts, black card and gray card for the cogs. Image is called: Clunk, Clunk. Sentiments from stash ( forgot to check before posting who they belonged to) Cogs are a mixture of dies I cut a while back. Paper is from Kaisercraft paper pad. Copic Markers, Double sided tape, and foam dots

Well that's all from me, but before I go would love to encourage you to pop over to the challenge blog and put an entry or two in. Come and check out the Design team creations and stop by our blogs and leave a comment. It's nice to get some feedback.
