Crafting From The Heart Challenge 15

Hello everyone, well blogger doesn't like me at the minute, not only did it not publish my post it ate it. So here is the short version.
At Crafting From The Heart we are looking for Anything Goes or April Showers. We are sponsored by Delicious Doodles and 2 Cute Ink this time. 


I used the very cute Sleeping Turtle from 2 Cute Ink. I coloured him with my pens, cut him out, I used my freebie embossing folders again, the grass and the clouds. The grass is on some Coredinations the clouds on some shiny white from my scrap box. I used a textured card base, swiped Tumbled Glass ink over it added my elements and that was it. 

I will be adding this card to some challenges later and can't wait to see you creations using April Showers or Anything Goes.

An Easter Bag

Hello again, welcome to my new followers delighted to have you here. The sun is shining again today which is always nice. I've made a few things today some of which I can't show until later. I can show this though.

I used Hoppy Easter from Tiddly Inks, cut him out on the Craft Robo, used my pens to colour him, used my Sakura pens for a change for the eggs to give them some shine. The border and the sentiment were freebies from Miss Kates Cuttables. These were cut on the Robo as well. I added some mats embossed one of them with my new folder, I added some ink as the colour wasn't deep enough. I used some ribbon which I stuck down with super sticky tape, only problem was the tape is wider than the ribbon...I used some gold glamour dust over the excess tape and actually quite like it. Some card Candi in the corner and done.

Some birthday cards

Hello again, the sun has been shining here always a good thing. Hope everyone has had a fabulous weekend.
I made these two this weekend.

 This is for my sister in laws partner, not sure what that makes him to me but we love him anyway. I used some Kraft card, some paper I've had for a long time and some gold pearl paper.

I cut the layers and the Happy Birthday with my dies. I used an scrap of very dark blue to back the Happy Birthday as it got a bit lost otherwise. One of those card that kind of makes itself, I can see a few more of these being made as well.


This one is from an Crafters Companion CD, Adorables Summer Collection, now it's been out for a while but I only got my copy a few days ago. I used some pencils I've had forever to add some more shading to it and left it at that. This one is for an uncle who lives close to the sea so I hope he likes it. 

I am entering these two in the following challenges:

Artistic Inspirations -Monochrome
Lexis Creations - Sentiment as the focus
Crafty Hands Challenge - Anything Goes
My Time To Craft - All at sea
Glitter n Sparkle -no square cards
