Red, White & Blue (Creative Craft Challenge GDT Card) ...

What have I got for you today fellow craft addicts, 
well I was lucky enough to have won first place
in the 'Anything Goes' challenge and a guest design spot over at
Creative Craft Challenges.
This is my card for the new challenge which is 'Red, white & blue'
and I have used this digi from this months sponsors

As my regular followers will know this digi is not my normal style so
this was a challenge for me, I hope I have done it justice?
I have used -
Free papers and sentiment stamp from the
Docrafts Creativity Magazine (issue 33)
'Goth Girl' digi coloured with Promarkers
Die cuts using my Slice
The Spellbinders Label Four
Seam Binding, gems & pearls from my stash
Of course I couldn't go without some stitching too!
I do you will you come and join us on the 'Red, white & blue' challenge this month

Remember when (Joanna Sheen DT Card) ...

Well today I have a card for the new challenge over on the Joanna Sheen Challenge blog
and for this fortnight the challenge is titled 'Remember when'.
I have used the 'Garden of Dreams' Countryside Stamp Collection.
This particular cottage stamp is where Joanna lives in Devon.
My inspiration for 'Remember When' was when I was a child, we used to holiday
in Devon with jam and scones, hence the backing paper.
Also in the old days (hark at me, I'm not that old) but you could buy
large boxes of chocolates with the most gorgeous images on the front
and this picture is what would be known as a 'chocolate box picture'.
Pictures not only featured gorgeous cottages and scenes but also
cute little animals too!
So come on and join in the challenge, 
We have a daily talent spot - It could be YOU!
We have weekly blog candy and goodies for the challenge winner too.
We also have a top 3 and a guest design spot up for grabs.
Thanks for popping by and for all your lovely comments.
I would also like to welcome my new followers,
your visit is very much appreciated and I do hope you 
have been inspired by your visit today.
Happy crafting, Jane x

Wellington Bear ...

Well today I have a CAS card to share.  
I just love 'Wellington Bear' and these new release stamps are just gorgeous.  
Great size stamps and a delight to colour.  
I have coloured him entirely with what is my usual style of dots and it took around
four hours to complete but I just love the result.
Can you believe it no hand stitching in site!
What have I used, well this should be easy -
 Square card blank
Satin Elegance cardstock
Recycled ribbon, heart charm, gems & bell from my stash
Sentiments are computer generated
Almost forgot, it doesn't show on the photo but this little
bears nose has glossy accents on!
I would like to enter this little cutie into the following challenges -
Divas by Design - One for the Boys (I won top3)!

Thanks for popping by, I have many projects on the go at the
moment so I shall be back very soon.
Take care, Jane x
