Morning all. We are looking for 'lots of layers -at least three' on your projects today over at Cardz4guyz. My first instinct for this one was decoupage. I dug out some of my sheets and found a nice picture with birds on. I layered it up and couldn't get it to look right on a card. I come to the conclusion that decoupage is not my style so I shall be getting rid of the rest of my sheets. To be fair, I'm not much of a fan of my alternative idea but here it is.

Morning all. We are looking for 'Masculine' projects today over at Make My Monday. Perfect if you are in the UK for father's day in June. I dug out a really old digi stamp for this one. It's so old I don't even know who to credit for it (sorry, please let me know if you know so I can do the honours). I love this image for a man but I can't even use it for the O/H as he doesn't drink.

Morning all. We have arrived at the letter D at The Alphabet Challenge this morning. We are looking for Dragonflies on your projects please. We do see lots of these on the river and canal but not so many on the Marina. Never mind, I've got a few here. I bought a set of three digistamps at Kinda Cute by Patricia Alvarez over on Etsy. I loved them all so I made three cards.
I coloured them all with the same coloured markers and gave their wings a bit of sparkle with a glitter pen. I can't believe I found three different ready made background in my stash with just the right colours. I obviously had a lot of green and blue scrap paper when I made them.
Please pop over and have a go at the challenge.
Thanks for reading.
Love Dawn x

Morning all. Posts are coming thick and fast this week. We have a new challenge to inspire you over at Cardz4galz today - we would like to see your 'Backgrounds' please.
I have to admit this one did take me a while to put together but I did manage to create three cards at the same time.

Morning all. Apparently it's National Bi-Pedal week. I didn't even know such a thing existed. Every day's a school day. Anyway, to celebrate we are taking that as our theme over at Cardz4guyz this fortnight. So, bikes it is.

Morning all. Today we have a lovely new theme at Sparkles Monthly Challenge. We are looking for 'things with wings'. There are plenty of things with wings on the marina here. The coots bully the ducks something rotten. I did have a lovely swan stick his head through the duck hatch when I was working yesterday.

Hi all, have you missed me? I moved house way back in February but it's taken until now to sort out our internet issues and find somewhere to stash my craft stash. 'What's the problem' you ask. Here's a picture of my new home.
