I am back with my second card for the Designer Challenge and this months challenge is to show off the STAGE IT STENCILS. Karen has 12 stencils in her line and you can see them all HERE.
I will tell you the story about how this card come about, I was "chatting" to Karen on Facebook and saying that I didn't know what I was going to make and that I was going into shed to watch Game of Thrones and I would see what I made. To that Karen said "Well obviously you need to make an Iron Throne using the Adirondack Chair! Ha." that got the old cogs in my brain working and that is the inspiration around my GAME OF BONES card.

Today is my anniversary. 16 years ago we visited the beautiful island of St Lucia on our 11th year of being a couple we got married. So that's a whopping 27 years!
I LOVE you Darren x
I used the Karen Burniston Hanging Charm pull card and her gorgeous happy frog. I am not sure why a frog when I think of my hubs. 😂😂

I am back again with my second item for the Designer Challenge this month and I decided to make a card. First to choose what my outdoorsy theme would be and I decided to use Poppy the Owl and the new Through the Lens paper pad from Els at Elizabeth Craft Designs.

I am here today with Aprils Challenge from Karen Burniston and this months brief was :
The Great Outdoors - create any sort of outdoor scene.
I was feeling a bit adventurous the other night and I fancied making a canvas to hold a photo. As the theme was great outdoors I was looking at some photos I had from walks around the beautiful places in Surrey that we visit and I found this lovely one of Harvey from a recent (ish) walk to Reigate Priory.
I started with the canvas and swiped the Tim Holtz Crayons on it, spritz with water and then rubbed with fingers and made a nice background with lots of Autumnal colours.

My niece Leanne is 30 tomorrow but had a party down on the farm she lives on lady night.
Busy day yesterday as I worked all day. Then off to the cinema to see The Jungle Book which was great by the way. And then to the farm for a fancy dress party. 80's style.
Back to the card. I used Cocoa the horse from Karen Burniston and the fence also from Karen Burniston to decorate the folded card which I created from a Jen Long die. My niece has 2 horses so I felt the decoration fitted 😀
Cocoa and the fence can be purchased from Crafts U Love or Elizabeth Craft Designs.
I suppose I had better share us in fancy dress. I was just in 80s neon. The other 3 80's films. Et, The Shining and Ghost busters 😁 can't say we are not game for a laugh 🙂

I became a great auntie Saturday and as soon as I found out Sunday I got making a baby card.
I used the Karen Burniston Oval Landscape accordion die and Taylored Expressions Hippo Birdy stamps.
It was lovely to use Pink and make this cute card to welcome baby Imogen. Congratulations Nephew Robert, Emma and Big Sister Ruby. X xx

I have a visitor to my crafty palace. Sometimes in the day, mostly at night.
I've named him Crafty, not very inventive. But he's a beautiful looking fox who I think lives just behind us.
I think the reason he was on my shed roof last night was I had had my heating on for a few hours and heat rises. So a snuggling little fox. ☺
And here's a fox card I made recently.

Another birthday card. This time made for another one of Harveys friends turning 13. Teen boy cards always hard but I decided on the comedy of the Taylored Expressions BIRTHDAY Grumplings .
I also used one of my new Marianne Borders for the blue spot paper.
