Variety of Cards

Hi Guys,

It's me back again, just went through my phone and got my pictures of cards that I have made recently. As you may have known or not known until recently I was on the Cute N Crafty design team but decided to leave it due to personal reasons so here is three of them and the 40th birthday card was made for a lady in the card swap group that I am on and she received it at the weekend so I can now share it with you all and she was over the moon with it. 
Bloody boiler on the blink again only got installed in August and supposedly got a new part for the same issue got fitted last week and husband told me it was the same again so got engineer coming out tomorrow to have a look. That will be the last 3 weeks that I wont have been able to craft grrrr lol

Speak soon and hope you all have a good night.

Incy Wincy Designs Team Challege 21st Jan - Colour and Picture Inspiration

Hi Guys,

How have you all been? Surviving January and the long horrible grey days lol? Well on the bright side it means you can craft like I have doing a wee bit every day and I have been having great fun I have also discovered Mixed Media and I'm loving it have been working on a few projects which I hope to get to show you all soon.
Well I have to share this info as it was what was behind this weeks Challenge and I have really loved this challenge as the Image I chose was very reflective and I chose neutral colours to highlight the reflectiveness but unfortunately I didnt have anything coral so I had to go with light pink and I restricted myself to  two shades of light pink and I also felt this image could be used to highlight the individuality and that you don't need to be afraid to be yourself as I think in today's society there is to much pressure on having to look a certain way and act a certain way well I can say I have never been  that person I have always tried to be myself and im proud of who I am so I think I know a young girl who could be doing with receiving this card. Sorry got too serious there. I hope you like this card as much as I do.
MUST USE PANTONE COLOUR OF THE YEAR (equivalent is light pink)

Hi there from Carol

Every year Pantone publishes their colour of the year whether we like it or not!

Well I best get back to dabbling in the mixed media world my hands have been every colour possible today but I Love it. I will be back in about 2 weeks with my next installment of my IWD dt challenge,

Happy New Year Festive Friday on The Outlawz Challenges

Hi Guys,

Well I think this is the last of my first week of the new year Design Team cards done and I;m excited with this one as I had great fun making it and it turned out better than I thought as you will see in the picture below. This image was provided by the Paper Shelter and the paper came with it too but didnt need to use it and at first I wasnt going to use the paper but it was only once I had coloured the image in that I looked at the paper and the vision came to me yes it was inspired by Frozen well its hard not to when it comes to a winter fairy right? Lol well its finally time that I can share this card with you all and I am over the moon with it. Well I am also in a card swap group on facebook and yesterday the first challenge of the year started and its Mixed Media which I am desperate to try and yes its taking me out of my comfort zone but with all my goodies I got at Christmas I am sure I will be able to create something so please keep an eye out for that post. Well enough rambling here is my jan 11th entry to Festive Fridays - Winter Fairy

Incy Wincy Designs 7thJan Quotes or Sayings

yay I'm so excited for you all to see this card as if anyone knows me they will know that I don't just love monkeys but I adore them. For my 30th Birthday a family member got a message written for me in a stone that was getting laid as a path in Monkey World down in Dorset. Also I'm very concerned for the monkeys who are losing their natural habitat for the world to get Palm Oil. Well enough of that when I got told about the sponsor Beccy's Place I was just having a browse  before Christmas and as the page loaded I seen the cute Monkeys so my decision was made. When the email came with this image and quote I just couldn't resist so I went and bought the whole set oops me bad but they are soooooooooooooooo cute so here is my entry for the Incy Wincy Design Team first challenge of the year and I cant wait to see what my entries will be like.

Its called the Get Creative Challenge and you can find it here You should come along and join us andI have absolutely loved making this card why should all cards be so cute and cuddly us adults can handle things being a bit more risque and I've tried to make this card look more seductive than slutty and I think I have achieved this. Just wish I could colour like some of you peeps. Well I have a hospital appointment later today then going to friends so not much crafting get done today and tomorrow i'm getting a new part fitted on my new boiler that was fitted just in Aug. But gonna try playing with some of my new craft goodies I got for my Christmas. Have fun and enjoy your Monday folks
