Rainbow Lady's Challenge - In the Country

Over on Rainbow Lady's challenge blog this week we want you to head for the country, our team have enjoyed this one and it is sponsored by the lovely joanna Sheen so well worth a go. For my card I have used the Enchanted Dreams cd and like a bit of a numpty put the backing paper on the wrong way so I decided to cut out a butterfly and then cover it with the most beautiful blue glitter and some gems jut to add a bit of something.  To finish off I used a LOTV stamp which I find so very useful, this is embossed in gold.

I do hope you can come over and join us and maybe you will be the one to win a voucher to spend in Joanna's shop.

CD Sunday - Christmas is Calling

Over at CD Sunday we have decided that July is a good time to make a start if you haven't already done so, on your Christmas cards so we thought this week we would use Christmas as our theme.
This week we are being sponsored by The Stamping Boutique and they are giving three images of the winners choice so worth a go and it is an easy challenge this week.

The DT have been given a few images to work with and as I wanted to make sure you could see the kind of thing they do I made two cards. My first card is done in Craft Artist and the washing line cut out and popped over the snowy background.  The second card is using a backing paper from Artylicious's Season's Greetings, I have used Tea Dye distress ink on both the backing paper and the image. The image itself is coloured with different shades of distress inks and I did have fun with the paint brush for a change.  The snowflakes and the word were cut out on the cricut, since taking the picture I have added a bit of glitter as a finishing touch.

I do hope you will come over and join us and meet our new guest for the month of July.
