Anyone for Golf!

It's time for a new challenge at Ooh La La Creations and the theme for the next fortnight is For a Man or Boy.

I have used a topper and papers from the All Dressed Up CD again, this time I have used one of the masculine collections.


I cut the golf topper out with an oval die and created a layer of decoupage.  I added distress ink to both the topper and the papers to create a more vintage feel.  The sentiment is from Kraftwork cards and I made my own card candi.


Make sure you pop over to the Ooh La La Creations Challenge Blog and check out the DT inspiration, we would love for you to join us for our For a Man or Boy Challenge.

Thank you for calling today, your company is much appreciated.

Son in Law - CD Sunday

It's time for a new challenge at CD Sunday and the theme for the next fortnight is Make it Male chosen by Carol. Don’t forget to use something from a CD somewhere, however small, in the making of your card or project and give the CD credit.

I used a topper and papers from the Crafter's Companion Camden Town CD to create my card.


The sentiment also comes from the CD, I also added some candi that I made myself by punching out small circles and covering them with 3D Crystal Lacquer.


I have decorated the inside of my card, I'm doing well so far this year!
