Rudolph Day - February

Hello and Welcome 

I hope I have just about made it into the Rudolph Day Challenge-February
Where Maureen  encourages us to make Christmas cards and projects each month.  The challenge is from 25th until the end of each month.

There is always a lovely prize for the lucky winner and great inspiration from Maureen and her Design Team.

I made this card last year with a Craftwork card paper pad  but have not blogged it before.

This is the inside of the card.  The teddy was cut out from one of the papers and he's been 'popped up'

Below is a picture of the front of the card

Unfortunately we're having a bit of trouble with the internet connection at the moment. It keeps dropping out.

Butterfly Challenge #95

Hello and thank you for visiting my blog today.

First I would like to give a warm welcome to Brenda my new follower.  I hope you will visit her blog to see her lovely work.

 This is a  front fold card which was a pig to photograph because of both the shape and the lighting.  However I had fun making it this afternoon for
The Butterfly Challenge #95

I used paper from my stash and the stamps are from an Inky Doodles set.

I managed to use six of the elements - butterfly, patterned papers, pearls and all three colours.  Unfortunately I wasn't able to incorporate paper piecing.

I really like the new format of the Challenge that Mrs. A has set for this year.  It really made me think.  Last month I also managed 6 elements.  My personal challenge is to use 7 elements some time during the year....

Ken - A Perfect Gent!

Hello and Welcome.

I can't believe it's almost two weeks since I last posted and I'm still catching up with visits too.

First I'd like to give a warm welcome to  my new  follower Sharon at craftyhugs blog.  I hope you'll have time for a visit.

My card today is for our  friend's  birthday next week.  I gave it to him today when we met up with Ken and others for our weekly pub lunch.

I stencilled the matt with colours to match my snippet of Stampin Up paper which I used for the waistcoat.  The stamps are a Woodware set.

After stamping I fussy cut the waistcoat and  coloured the buttons with a silver gel pen.   Finally I coloured parts of the waistcoat with a dark grey Promarker then added some Wink of Stella over the grey.

As I used a snippet of white card for the matt and a piece of SU paper I'm entering my card over at
