What Card?

Ummmmm, interestingly, I started out to make a card and this is what happened! Think my mind is wandering……….
And I so need Christmas Cards – oh well, my excuse is I’m not really feeling the Spirit yet – the Christmas one that is!
So, using a project from the Funky Fairy Christmas Workshop this is what I made! A 3D frame!
I have entered it into the following challenges
PBSC – Winter Wonderland
Crafty Cardmakers – “clear as day”
Lots to do – free theme
Allsorts challenge – to use a song title/Christmas Carol – I used Deck the Halls
Colour Create – green, red and white
Simon Says Challenge – Animal antics
Catz Corner – to use winter colours
Creative Inspirations - sparkle
Materials used
Stamp is Penny Black
Papers are from Funky Fairy
Ribbons, snowflake from stash
Poinsettia from Hobby House
Ok, dessert is calling………

Some Completed Projects from Paradise!

Well, I have finally managed to complete some of the projects from Graphicus’ first ever Paradise Retreat!IMGP1794
This is a card made with stamping onto acetate and then backing with gold leaf.
IMGP1802This is a stitched accordion book – I have to say we all did very well here considering the time of day that we had needle and thread in our hands!
IMGP1803 Jean Hardy from Crafty Individuals taught this particular project – A “Shrine”.  Can you spot the deliberate mistake???
IMGP1798  IMGP1795 IMGP1799 IMGP1796
And Glenda showed us all how to make this wonderful “Diptych Dreams” arched book.
I still have a couple of tags to finish and two stampbord boxes! However I haven't made a card for a week and now have challenge starvation fever so off to try and accomplish that – family allowing – they’ll be wanting their Sunday Lunch/Dinner!
