CD Sunday Challenge - chosen by Sue

Hello there, I am just in time I think to enter the CD Sunday Challenge, and the theme is 'no image or photo' on your creation.  Here is my card:

Now, as it it a CD challenge, you must use something from a CD 'no matter how small'.  Here I have used the Crafters Companion Sara Signature Country Garden collection papers.  These were taken from the Crafter's Inspiration magazine issue 10 CD, along with the digi image, which I have resized to fit into my die cut.  The layers are Stampin Up card colours Rose Red and Daffodil Yellow, which seem to match well with the papers.  L ittle bit of sparkle on the digistamp, a few pearls and ribbon were used to finish off.

I shall also enter this card into the Freshly Made Sketches challenge, as I used the latest sketch, which you can find HERE.   Hope to catch you again soon.  Thanks for visiting.  Lynn x

Butterfly Challenge - #55

Hi there, such a scorcher this week that I have not been in my hothouse   craftroom, until today.  I made this card for Mrs. A's Butterfly challenge, which this time around is 'A for aperture and/or apricot.'

The cardstock is SU crisp cantaloupe, which is the nearest I had got to apricot.  I embossed a piece of vellum to go centrally down the cardbase.  The butterflies were punched out of parchment, and embossed using parts of baby groovi plates (Claritystamp).  Dies are Apple Blossom from Craftstash.
Thanks for visiting the blog, and have a lovely weekend. Lynn x

Snippets playground 232

Hello there, phew what a scorcher today has turned out to be!  I do hope you have managed to enjoy some sunshine where you are.  Di is on 'teacher training' this week so there is sure to be good behaviour (not) in the playground.   My make for this week is a Father's Day card.

I have used a snippet of green card behind the parchment to show it up  better.  I have used Claritystamp Groovi plates for this one.  This is my first attempt - it is by no means perfect, but you gotta start somewhere.  Here is a close up of the design.

My white work definitely needs working on, lol.  Have a good week. Lynn x

'Lets go Lilac' CD Sunday Challenge

Hello there, I am showing you my card for the latest CD Sunday Challenge which was chosen by Jocelyn, and the theme is 'Lets go Lilac'.  I do like lilac, but I had to search hard through my CD collection for what I really had in my mind.

Here I have used a topper from the Makey Bakey Mice Everyday CD by Crafters Companion, and the dark background and gingham papers are from the same CD.  The striped paper is from the Crafters Inspiration Magazine CD (4 Spring) from Crafters Companion, and this is within the Rachel Anne Miller collection.  Just in case you are wondering the butterfly, flourish and flowers diecuts are by Apple Blossom, and the hexagon dies are from the current Crafters Companion Inspiration  Magazine.

There are two new Design Team members, so if you visit the challenge site, please say hello to them.
Thank you for dropping by my blog. Lynn x
