Another Surprise!

I had another surprise this week. Clare Curd from Docrafts E-mailed me to say I had won her Weekly Challenge. I am overjoyed to say the least. I have been enjoying Clare's challenges, each Wednesday she sets a project to be uploaded by the following Tuesday. Last week chipboard had to be included in the card. I based my card on her sketch of the week also, therefore combined both challenges together. I used K & Co papers and inked a chipboard flower with a Whispas port wine ink pad to get a similar colour. I added dots of Liquid Pearls to add a little definition to the petals. The small flower and leaves are Lavinias clear stamps. Finishing touches are lime green gems and raffia. This raffia is recycled from a gift I received for Poland. Nothing goes to waste.

Sketch of the Week

I just received an E-mail from Clare Curd on the docrafts site to congratulate me on winning her sketch of the week. I am absolutley thrilled to bits. The card pictured below is the one I entered. It was a litte different from my usual design. I am off to make some Christmas cards now and will upload them when hubby takes the photographs.

Sketch Challenge

It's Sunday morning, I'm taking time to update my blogs and look at some other poeples blogs and galleries. I just uploaded my card from Clare Curd's sketch of the week on the Docrafts site, I will share this with you all here too. I went for a BIG & BOLD approach this week, the final design is nothing like what I started out to do. Sometimes one idea generates to another and the final outcome is so different to what I intended.

Son's Birthday Cards

I made the yellow sun card for my sons birthday, which I thought was very apt since he is a Doctor of Astronomy. Well, when I let my Hubby see it he said he liked the card but... was it not a litle feminine. I suppose when you look at it again the colours are a bit pale and the beads a little girlie.
So off I went to re-design the card. This is what I came up with. I hope it fits the bill this time, so feel free to make any comments I really appreciate others vews.
