Whiff Of Joy Challenge # 68 - Bev's Sketch

Hello peeps, yes it has been a while since my last post. Feel sorry for me please, I have been up to my neck in housework! I didnt know just how much mess, three girls can make! So I have had a bit of a spring clean, which hasn't left me much time for crafting, boo hoo! Well, today I had enough, I put down the duster and made this card to enter in the
Whiff of Joy challenge. Bev has done a great sketch, I really loved using it and will again.

I also steered away from my beloved Copic's and reached for the ink pads, which I have used with a paintbrush and water. I then raided my stash and box and found these beautiful papers, so have been really good and not used anything new today. I had a real clear out over the weekend, and have such a big box of stamps, paper packs, embellishments and stickers, that I must put on Ebay, so watch this space if you want to pick up a bargain or three!

My card : Pink Bazzill, My Mind's Eye papers, WOJ image, MS Daisy Border and edge punch, SU sentiment, Kaisercraft flowers and pearls. Versamagic ink pads, Sahara Sands, Pixie Dust and Aspen Mist.

Right, will be back later with a sneeky peek of my DT cards for Willow and MAWTT.

Enjoy your afternoon! hugs Heidi xx

Allsorts Challenge # 38 - Get Distressed with Buttons & A Bow!

Good afternoon, I can't believe that Sunday has come around again! Have had such a busy week, mainly due to my little bubby Georgia being poorly with Viral Tonsilitus. she is on the mend and should be going back to school tommorrow, thanks to everyone who has sent her get-well messages, it was lovely of you all!

Here is my entry for Allsorts Challenge . The theme this week is 'Distressed with Buttons and a bow'. I decided to not use a stamp for my card, I have been neglecting my Cuttlebug bits and this butterfly is just beautiful! There are some lovely stamps and ribbons up for grabs this week, so do pop on over and take a look at the lovely DT cards.

My card is a new take on a tri-shutter card and I have taken three different pictures so that you can see it up close. I have started off with distressing all of the edges and inking them using my Momento brown inkpad. I have used some brown and khaki Bazzill cardstock. Kaisercraft 'Dancing Jewel - Amethyst' paper. QK Scallop die cut shapes in two sizes. Cuttlebug Butterfly, Kaisercraft flowers, bling and pearls. Ribbon from Amercian Crafts. Buttons and ink pad from stash.

Have had a wonderful day crafting with Georgia, got visited by my bruv and now have to go cook Roast Beef with all of the trimmings yum! Enjoy the rest of your day, love and hugs Heidi xxx
