Oh What fun !

It's challenge time again over at 613 Avenue Create and as always it's Anything Goes but our twist this month is Fancy Folds  and Cuts. Our sponsor is Conie Fong Art and Design.

Here is what I made using one of the fun images..... A single piece of card cut and folded so it stands by itself. I decided to go with a Christmas theme. The card folds down to C6 size so fits in a normal envelope.

I've used: White and Red cardstocks. Designer Paper from stash. Bits and pieces from an ornate die. I cut the snowflakes off it and also some of the swirly pieces and rearranged them. I also used a snowflake that I cut with a friend's single dies. The image is from Conie Fong and the sentiment is from Stampin' Up. Copic Markers and Wink of Stella (White... had a small issue with it blobbing and messing up my colouring but I decided to just go for it as I'd already coloured the image twice because it did it the first time as well but it was a bigger blob and did more damage.) It's very frustrating when you get to the very end of colouring etc and it just releases too much and there is not a thing you can do about it.....cry!

That's it from me....Hope to see some of your creations being entered over at the challenge blog. Check out the DT inspiration and maybe pop in to see some of the other entrants cards as well.

Please take the time to leave a comment. I'd appreciate it.

But first Coffee

Hi everyone, I'm running late for the challenge at 613 Avenue Create. I've finally sorted the printer out to allow me to get black images instead of green ones and the right colour for the coloured one! The challenge is anything goes with the Optional twist of  - Your Favourite Drink.

So.... here is my very late DT card. Our sponsor is Mirtillamente and we were given this great sentiment to use. I've added an image from a previous DT sponsor to complete my card and have used a coffee bean stamp from a freebie set of stamps with magazine purchase.


Would love to see you popping in to the challenge blog and entering at least one entry, more if you like!

Please take the time to leave a comment, I would appreciate it very much.

Take care, Hugs, Sandy DT

Floral in Purple and Yellow

It's been cold the last few days with rain and then sunshine in the afternoon. Looking forward to the end of winter. Hope all is well in your part of the world.

It's time for another challenge at Simply Create Too. We've all had lots of ups and downs over the last part of the year and some of us are just getting back into the swing of things. So.... my first post for the DT for a while and the theme is "Favourite Colours"

Purple is my most favourite but it looks great with yellow so I've combined the two in my card. The background is a glossy yellow and gold paper and I've put it on a purple cardstock and embellished with some purple sparkly acrylic gems.

Here is my card......

Looking forward to seeing all the entries over on the challenge blog so get out your supplies and start creating. Pop over and check out the DT creations as well as the challenge entries. Our challenges run for a month so you have plenty of time to add your entries.

Please take the time to leave a comment and thanks for popping in.

Pretty Succulents

 March already and a new challenge is beginning at 613 Avenue Create. As usual, an Anything Goes theme with an Optional Twist. This time it's Succulent Inspiration.

I decided to go with this gorgeous succulent themed paper from the Paper Mill called Cactus Club. I've embellished it with a sweet little succulent character and sentiment from Uniquely Creative stamp set - Sweet Succulents. I've used a pinky purple cardbase which matches in well with the paper and also a white rectangle diecut for the inside.

Here's the card.....

Well, that's it from me once more. Love to see you entering the challenge this month. Come and visit the DT blogs and leave us a comment. We love to get feedback rather than all that spam that finds its way into the comments.

Thanks for stopping by,

Valentine Whimsy

Wow, Valentines Day is just around the corner and the new challenge at 613 Avenue Create this month is Anything Goes with an Optional Twist of Valentine Whimsy.

I've chosen to do the twist and have used this whimsical stamp from Stampin' Up to create my card.    Here it is.... 

I've taken a photo on some pretty heart floral paper. The card base is Black and the DP is from my stash. I can't remember the maker of the heart Die. Other dies used were Nestie deckled rectangles (large and small) Copic Markers, D/S tape roller and red pearls from Kaisercraft.

Hope to see your entries over at 613 Avenue Create Challenge Blog this month. Please take the time to pop in to the DT blogs and leave us a comment. Maybe check out some of the entries as well as everyone likes to get some feedback.

A Valentine for those of us that are a bit older!

Simply Create Too has a new challenge and the theme is Valentine's Day. 

Here is what I've come up with.....

 I've used red cardstock, white cardstock and DP from stash. The stamped image is from Penny Black and is called Tom and Lilly. The sentiment is I think from Close to my Heart (or from SU, i've had several stamp sets out lately)

I'm looking forward to seeing all the entries this challenge. Please drop in to all the DT and leave a comment. We appreciate the feedback.

Thanks for stopping by,
