Anita’s Attic Challenge

The challenge this month at Anita’s Attic, over at the Creations by JJ forum is to make a project shaped like a cake. After an absolute disaster with a pop-up, I came up with this 🙂


This Thursday Challenge 19

The challenge this week over at the This Thursday Challenge blog is called “Thrown a Curve”, and this is my take. The papers are available free from Pink Petticoat via the This Thursday blog, and the chick image is also from Pink Petticoat, I just couldn’t resist 🙂

Stamp Something Sketch Challenge, Fri 17th Oct

There is a great sketch at the Stamp Something blog this week, provided by the lovely Katharina from Whiff of Joy stamps
Here is a card I made last night using a stamp from Viva Las Vegas stamps and papers from K&Co. I used a square card, which threw the elements out a little, and I just couldn’t get the text to look right at the angle in the sketch, so I hope it’s ok that I tilted it the other way 🙂

2 Sketches 4 You

There’s a great sketch this week over at 2 Sketches 4 You, pop on over and have a look. I made this anniversary card using K&Co Ashford paper. This is the first time I’ve made one of these flowers (I’m not sure if they’re called Circle flowers or lollipop flowers) and I’m quite pleased with the way it turned out 🙂

Creations by JJ challenge

One of the current challenges over at the Creations by JJ forum is to make a gate-fold thank you card. I’ve never made a gatefold card before, so I’m actually quite pleased that it all went without a hitch 😉 The image is a Hampton Arts stamp and the paper is from Basic Grey.

Coordinates Collections Cyber Crop

They’re having a cyber crop over at Coordinates Collections this weekend, and I made my first ever 12×12 layout for one of the challenges.
A few years ago, hubby made an incubator and we hatched some chicken eggs. Five of the six survived, and this is the first page I’ve made of them, but I do have a LOT of photos of these, so there may well be more.

Friday Sketchers’ Sketch 23

There’s a fab sketch to use in this week’s challenge over at Friday Sketchers
I had a lot of fun with this sketch, head on over to the site and check it out yourself. 🙂

I made the image in PSP using elements from Outlaw by Design, and the backing paper is Basic Grey.
