Launch of A new Challenge Blog!

The Blog is Dawn's Crafty Cards and Friends (D.C.C & Friends) and the first challenge is:-


There are some lovely prizes on offer which have been kindly provided by

and also a:-                             TREASURE HUNT!

which will run until December, you can collect the letters of a secret code and enter the draw to win a fabulous prize! (More details on the Challenge blog).
For my card I used a Lili of the Valley image which I coloured using copics. I highlighted using polychromos and the used Sansador and paper stumps to blend. I used a Magnolia die for the fence, Spellbinders for matting, a memory box die for the sun and I created the lollipop hearts using my Craft Robo. The backing papers are all from Polka Doodles cds.

White on White Challenge

Well it is time for a new challenge over at the Cards Galore Challenge Blog! This month the challenge is:

White on White

The challenge is sponsored by Gems Creative Crafts who have very kindly donated a £10 Voucher for the challenge winner!
I have to say I really enjoyed taking part in this challenge as it stretched me creatively and I am actually very pleased with my creation for once!
I decided I would create a tissue box cover so I bought a cube shaped box of tissues, cut a net to make the cube from (it took two 12" sheets of card to make the cover). I then let rip with my spellbinder and my Craft Robo, to create the dimensional embellishments which I highlighted with pearls and glitter.
Bethany has already earmarked it for her room, which is to be transformed by the end of the summer holidays (I promise!)
Happy Crafting and please enter the challenge :)
