Beach Huts

I've made this card for the current CD Sunday Challenge, the theme is Seasons.  I have used my Crafter's Companion Halcyon Days CD to make a Summer themed card - I think that's a bit of wishful thinking on my part.


I decided to use one of the card companions along with a topper and an additional baking paper from the design sets.  I used some foam pads between a couple of the layers to add a little dimension.


The tag was part of the card companion, I just added some ribbon and a button.

Just Because

This is a card that was published in last months Simply Cards & Papercraft Magazine.  The new edition is out on Thursday so I can share this with you now.


I was commissioned to make two cards for the Cardmakers' Challenge feature, we were given a colour combination to work with.


I followed a sketch that I found on Pinterest and used papers from Wild Rose Studio.  I used a template to make the butterfly shaped rosette.  The sentiment is computer generated and I cut it out with my Die-namics Fishtail Flags die.


I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Have a great day!

It's time for our mid challenge reminder at the House-Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge and the theme is A Zodiac Sign Connection. Alternatively you can enter an Anything Goes project just as long as you use a House-Mouse, Happy Hopper or Gruffie image.

I have used a fun decoupage image from Joanna Sheen's House-Mouse Decoupage CD to make my card and have chosen Pisces: The Fish.


You can see all of the decoupage layers, they were rather fiddly to cut out.  My design inspiration for this card came from Pinterest and I have used papers from Joanna Sheen's House-Mouse Inserts CD - the sentiment is a Hero Arts stamp.


Our sponsor for this challenge is:



Winner will receive a $20 Reward Card
