Grilling Percy with Digital Delights Challenge #11

Hi everyone,
I hope you're all well.

It's time for a new challenge at Digital Delights.

Here's my little bit of inspiration...


I've used the super cute Grilling Percy together with the fabulous Grillin and Chillin digital paper pack. I've coloured Percy using Copics and made his apron co-ordinate with the papers, matting with black card from my stash and adding ribbon and a bow as the finishing touch. I cut Percy out with a Tonic die and edged the panel with Black Soot distress ink.

I hope you'll join us for this challenge. Don't forget to check out the great inspiration from my very talented team mates and have a look at the awesome shop HERE. You don't have to use a Digital Delights image to enter but we love it when you do. Can't wait to see all the fantastic entries. You could win a gift voucher to spend in our shop.

Thanks for visiting. I hope to see you again soon.

Hip to be square with Ruby's Rainbow

Hi everyone.

There's a new challenge at Ruby's Rainbow.
The theme is Hip to be square. We'd like to see a square base card.

Here's my little bit of inspiration...


I've used a LOTV image from the Bunnies artpad and teamed it up with some papers from my stash. I also found the sentiment tag in my stash and thought it went perfectly. I've added some ribbon and pearls as finishing touches.

Now it's your turn. I can't wait to see your fabulous projects.

Happy crafting
Helen xx

Wedding/Anniversary/Engagement with Sparkles

Hi everyone,

There's a new challenge at Sparkles Monthly Challenges.

Our theme this month is When you marry in June.

We'd love to see your wedding, anniversary or engagement makes.
I chose to make an anniversary card...


I've used a LOTV image from the Cute Cottage Garden artpad, which I've cut using Tattered lace dies. I embossed the front of the card blank using a mask which came free with Simply Cards & Papercraft at some point. I matted the image using Core'dinations Nostalgia Sandable card, adding some ribbon which came from The Hobby House, which is also where the charm came from. I finished off with a circadesign sentiment and a few pearls.

Our sponsor this month is the fabulous Bugaboo


Thanks for visiting. I hope to see you again soon.

Meet Geoffrey

Hi everyone,

there's a new challenge starting at Ruby's Rainbow

It's my turn to choose the theme and I chose
Anything BUT a card.

I'm loving learning to crochet at the minute and want you to meet Geoffrey!


Isn't he cute? I've made him following a pattern from this book...


My best friend Susie bought me the book for my birthday in April and I love it. So far I've made the giraffe, the elephant, the monkey and the hippo. I can't decide what to make next...I have the wool to do any of the projects! We seem to be getting as addicted to buying wool as papercraft supplies, lol

Anyhow, I hope you'll pop over and take a look at the awesome inspiration from my very talented team mates. You won't be disappointed.

Hope to see you again soon
