This weeks colour challenge at Just Add Ink focussed on using Rich Razzleberry, Tempting Turquoise, Kiwi Kiss and Whisper White. A little bit of Butterfly punching, Top Note die cutting, Versamark flower stamping, a few brads and using the latest Mojo Monday Sketch along with a little layer upon layer effect...I managed to squeeze this card creation in this evening while hubby was creating digital photo/music album arrangements (might I say look pretty schmick - love looking back over the past two years since moving out of the city and thinking that life's just great!!)Mmm....what's next?! Oh yeah...sleep, work, packing boxes (to move just around the corner) a dash to the city for the weekend for birthday celebrations, kiddlywinks sport, life:) and of course crafting..lol!! Wishing you love and laughter in your part of the world today! x

This weeks challenge at Stampin' Royalty is to make a masculine themed card! The other week at Stamp Club we made a patchwork card that I just had to try again:) You need to punch out 12 squares in a variety of papers, place them in a patchwork pattern, stick them to a white background, run them through the 'Top Note' die cut and then add your personal touches! I've used the Stampin' Up! 'Sweet Slumber Specialty' paper, cute fox from 'Fox & Friends' stamp set, Big Shot 'Top Note' die cut and 'Perfect Polka Dots' embossing folder, a fancy silver word frame and Chocolate Chip ink and paper! The fox has a particular purpose for this card..the family it's geared up for happened to catch one this morning!?!? The chickens will be safe once again! lol:) Hope your having a wonderful Sunday in your neck of the woods! x

It's the first time I've used my Stampin' Up! Two-Step Bird punch too!!What an exciting way to start the weekend with...I actually began creating the card last night...popped back to the creation a couple of times in between breaky, fishing, packing boxes, lunch and have managed to post it before heading out for afternoon! Although it seems to be working just having it there to 'play' with as I'm walking by the study!! a bit here and a bit there!! So much crafting to do...so little time:) ps...Ooo just noticed that this weeks Crazy 4 Challenges is all about paper flowers...so I'm going to pop it in for that challenge too - bonus!!
