Morning Everyone,

I've had this card in my drafts for quite a while and, seeing as I haven't done much crafting in this hot weather, thought it was about time I shared it.  This is a quick card I made, without having to colour anything, for my Aunt.

I've distressed the edges of the papers, which are Pion Design, and added some cheesecloth.  Flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts, lace, a couple of pearls and the ready made sentiment from Dovecraft finish it off.

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Creative Inspirations - Furry/feathered friends
Creative Moments - Anything Goes
Dream Valley - Square cards only
Southern Girls Challenge - Stuck on you (pearls, sentiment)
The Ribbon Girl - June Any Image

Thank you for visiting and I hope you can leave a comment as I do love to read them.

Have a good week,

Morning Everyone,

I can't believe it's two weeks since I last posted, time just seems to fly by!

I would like to thank Jenny for becoming my latest follower and I hope she enjoys looking at my future makes.

Today is the start of a new challenge at As You Like It and the theme is to showcase a project using your favourite fruit (you can use its colour as inspiration) and please don't forget to say why it's your favourite.

I've used Tiddly Inks Berry Sweet stamp for my card.  I love strawberries, mainly sweet English ones, as I think they have more flavour than the type you can buy all year round.  Also when you start seeing the PYO signs and local strawberries on sale, it definitely means summer is here and strawberries make me think of Wimbledon, which I love to watch on the telly.  We have been a few times too but it's always a bit dicey as to whether you'll get rain or not.

I've coloured Wryn with copics and used an old LOTV paper pad.  The dies used are Lawn Fawn stitched rectangles, Creative Expressions stitched flags, small Crafter's Companion flower die and a Mama Elephant tag.

The sponsors of the challenge are:

with a prize of 3 images of the winner's choice

If you'd like to pop over to the challenge here you will be able to see the lovely cards from the rest of the DT.

Challenges I would like to enter are:

Colour Crazy Challenge - Anything Goes
Tiddly Inks - Make it Rectangle
The Ribbon Girl - Any card
Noor Design - Summer
Happy Little Stampers - Anything Goes with Dies
Allsorts - Use 2 dies or more

Thank you for visiting and I love to read your comments.  Have a good weekend, it looks as though it's going to be a hot one!

Morning Everyone

It's time for another challenge at As You Like It and this fortnight we're asking you to showcase and tell us your favourite reason to make/send a card (other than a birthday card), and don't forget to let us know why.

My favourite cards to make are Christmas cards as I love adding glitter and sparkle and I do tend to make them all year round when I don't have much else on.

This is a LOTV stamp coloured with copics.  I've added shabby white frantage around the edge of the floral oval, glitter and stickles to the wings. The edges of the papers have been distressed and I've also added a double bow with a bit of bling and a small flower arrangement.

The sponsor of this challenge is:

with a $10 gift voucher for the winner

If you would like to pop over to the challenge here you'll be able to see the lovely cards from the rest of the design team.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Fab n Funky - Christmas
Fairytale Challenge - Things with wings
Creative Inspirations - Favourite Things (christmas cards, glitter, flowers)

Thank you for visiting and I do love to read your comments, they are much appreciated.
