Anything Goes Challenge 100 In the Garden

Tuesday is challenge day over at the Anything Goes Challenge Blog 
This week we are enjoying being "In the Garden" with butterflies everywhere !!
Our challenge is open from 0800 today for the next two weeks please come and join us for our 100th challenge, we love coming to visit your amazing blog's !!

I couldn't resist taking the butterflies to the extreme for my card using a combination of Marianne Designs, punches and Cheery Lynn to make them fly absolutely everywhere.

I used Perfect Pearls to dress them up a bit

and Cricut Everyday Paper Dolls cartridge to cut the fence, added some doodling and bakers twine

The doily and smaller cuts are made with a brand new set of dies from Spellbinders called Delightful Circles
I used this weeks sketch from the  Sketch Saturday Challenge Blog and have entered my card just for fun !! x !!
Lynn's on line shop continues to be under construction but don't forget to pay her a visit at The Craft Den if  you are near Sheffield.

Anything Goes Blog Challenge #99 By the Sea

Happy Tuesday !!
I have another sea side theme card to share today, this time its for this fortnight's Anything Goes Challenge
I was going to do clean and simple but the card had other ideas lol !!

First off I couldn't get the layers straight (too lazy to go find a new blade) and then I realised the card wasn't quite long enough to space them out !!
Not to be defeated I went for cheesecloth and netty fabric and some old chain kept for many a year from my daughters pretty belt clip once a big favourite of her's- she wouldn't thank me for it now!! and plonked it all on together

I cut all the shapes with Cricut Craft Room using the current freebie "Pirates and Mermaids" with some beautiful Jewel coloured card stock

I used Distress Ink to take the white off the card stock 

and finished it off with some cute embellishments

I hope you can find time to pop over to the 
to visit the DT and see their fabulous creations and then join in the fun with your own project.
The challenge is open for 2 weeks
Please show your support by visiting Lynne's shop in Sheffield THE CRAFT DEN if you are lucky enough to be in the area

FCCB Challenge #172 Make a Splash

Cricut meet's Digi Stamps for this weeks challenge over at FCCB !!
We were all given the choice of 5 digi stamps from our sponsor this week 
to play with
I decided to use "Mermaid Ellie"
Here she is ....
...Super cute !!
I used my pro-markers to colour Mermaid Ellie after I'd chosen the papers I wanted to use namely Pretty Please by My Minds Eye and some printed paper from the Paper Mania Capsule Collection CD ROM.

I cut a frame form the Elegant Edges Cartridge, stuck Ellie behind it and the used some Frantage embossing powders. I drew faux stitches just to add some interest around the frame.

I put some Cheese Cloth under and around the left side of the frame with some Hessian and then added these fantastic shells and little star fish

Please pop over to FCCB and check out the DT creations, make your own project using at least one Cricut cut and join in the fun...
the challenge is open until 1900 Sunday
you might also want to pay a visit to the Paper Nest Store and Blog
Well ...
I'm off to finish a 70th Birthday card commission, hopefully I'll be back to show it off tomorrow ...
