Beehive Queen

Today I thought I'd share the card I have made for the March Progressive Challenge over at Simply B Stamps Fan Page.  I must admit to being new to Simply B images but I'm lovin' them and this one is no exception.  I have coloured her with a mix of markers, (can't get to grips with skin using chameleons!), SN pencils and SN Sparkle pens, she is matted onto some black card and some black gems added.  Background printed paper is from Raspberry Road Designs then I added a circle of yellow cs which has been embossed, some ribbon from my stash.  The sentiment came with the image so I printed it onto yellow cs and matted it with black cs and finished of with some little bee buttons that I have had for such a long time, they have been attached to the back of the sentiment using some yellow wire.

Crafty Catz Challenge #360 ~ Anything Goes

Good morning, I seem to be totally in a rush all the time at the moment and if not in a rush then I'm tired!  Just as well I'm on holiday for a while think I need time to unwind and slow down with some serious crafting!  Anyway it's Friday so that means a new challenge over at Crafty Catz and the theme is 'Anything Goes' and this week it is the turn of our fabulous leader Carol to pick the twist for the DT and this week it's 'Doilies', you don't have to do the twist but it we love it when you do play along with the twist.  Our wonderful sponsor this week is 


The DT were very generously given some images to play along with.  I chose 'Birds For Bree' I have coloured her with a mix of markers, added a stamped sentiment, papers are Santoro and called Adrift (I think, its an old pad) but they gave me a sort of vintagey feel.  The 2 rows of birds are die cut from papers from the same pad.  Doily is from a pack of mixed size ones that I bought ages ago in a kitchen shop with the thought of crafting not baking! lol  Added some lace from stash and finished off with a metal square brad which has a rose from the background paper set into it with a resin top.

Having been picked as a Top 3 recently over at The Crazy Challenge I had the opportunity to be a guest designer for 2 of their challenges, well it would have been rude not to join in!  So this fortnight the challenge is 'We Love Animals' and it gave me a great opportunity to play with the Cricut, To You From Me cartridge and using Kraft cs and patterned Kraft Funday papers from MME I made this owl pillow box,  I think it's a cutie don't you?

Crafty Cardmakers Challenge #183 ~ Go Green

Hi, I hope you have all had a good weekend, it's time for a brand new challenge over at Crafty Cardmakers and this week our host is Judy and she has chosen the theme 'Go Green' and wants to see your projects using mainly green or as it's nearly St Patrick's Day you could make a project to celebrate that.  

I recently bought the Cricut cartridge  'To You From Me' and a scoring tool so I've been busy playing with it and decided to make a gift card holder.  The paper is from First Edition 'Hideaway' then I added a punched butterfly, die cut sentiment, some gems, raffia string and wooden beads.  Can see me making a few of these they are such a great way to give gift cards.
