Crazy 4 Challenge C4C373

Its challenge time again over at the Crazy 4 Challenges blog and this week it is a sketch.

Here is the sketch and here is my take on the sketch.

I decided that I wanted to play with Poppy the Owl
from Karen Burniston HERE
I also used a few things that were lying close to hand such as the Sizzix tree that
I used as branch, and the Sizzix Cloud at the bottom of the page.

A simple card, but sometimes simple is good eh?

You can see all the other designs on their blogs

Until next time!

Paper Pros Challenge 001

Welcome to a NEW challenge for me. 

 This is the Paper Pros Challenge and it is Challenge Number 001! 
 What or who are Paper Pros?... well we are a group of Crafting Friends, brought together by our love for the Karen Burniston Products and we formed the Karen Burniston Designer Challenge Team.  Now firm friends and firm crafters we all decided with the Karen Burniston Design Team without our challenges we wanted to keep ourselves busy with Monthly challenges.  Just for fun, anything goes product wise and just to be part of a team, together creating and hopefully inspiring you all still!  Thrilled that our "Team Leader" Karen Burniston wanted to play with us too!! And Karen is joining in.

Summer was the lady to kick our challenge into the start line and her challenge is :

How about shaking it up? --- a challenge all about shaking... Whether a 

shaker card or action wobbler... Just a whole lotta shaking going on

Now me being last minute I had to make some Valentine gifts.
A little choccy box for 4 special people.

I used the Tonic Studios Gesture Box this cute
little box is big enough to hold a small chocolate.  Such as a
ferrero rocher But for Valentines I popped some chocolate hearts.
The image was stamped with a Taylored Expressions Grumplings set
and I mounted the circle onto a concertina of card to create a "Wobble" platform.

You can see the rest of the teams creations on their blogs :

I am not sure if all are playing along every week, we are doing 
it as a kind of relaxed thing.  No stress just fun!!

I hope you enjoy seeing us back together.

Second week in February and although I did my card in time I totally forgot to post it on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog last night!  opps!

Tammy is hosting February and she said :

Hello everyone, and welcome to the second challenge for February!  Valentine's Day is approaching, and many take the opportunity to go out for a fancy dinner to celebrate!  So for this week's challenge, incorporate a food/dining/dishes-theme into your design, and also use the color red!

And here is my card :)

I used a Penny Black Owl for my main image.
This was mounted onto the Oval Pull Card from Karen Burniston 
I used it minus the optional arm
The Cupcakes are very old Penny Black stamps.

That's my card for today!

Crazy 4 Challenges - C4C371

This February is Tammy's turn to choose the challenges and she said 

"Today my baby girl turns 20! Oh my, where has the time gone? In addition to turning 20, Kelsey will also be graduating from Vet Tech school later this month, and we're so proud of her! In honor of Kelsey today, please create a card with animals in your design."

Here is my card for the challenge and this card was made just for fun, with no-one in mind and I was just grabbing lots of different things close by and generally just having some fun.

Here is what I used :

Foxes from Hobby Art set
Grass Border is Marianne from Crafts U Love
Trees, Hello and Banner from Sizzix Sets 
Karen Burniston Lorna Label Pop It ups
Flowers Card-io

Sorry the photo is dark, its hard to take a picture at night time.

You can see all the other Crazies cards on the link TOP LEFT of my blog :)

I hope you like this card today.  Stay safe, storm Doris is blowing in tonight.  I was in my Crafty Palace earlier and the wind nearly took the door off!!  Its scary out there so I came in, sounds much safer in here that out in the wind with some giant leylandii swaying around me.  Eeek!!
