Morning all. Over at The Alphabet Challenge today we have reach 'G' and that G is for 'Green'. It must be the predominant colour on your project. For my card I used a die I've bought recently from Spellbinders. It fell into my basket - as they do - when I was ordering a really pretty bird die. Unfortunately, the bird die went out of stock and they just sent this gorgeous shaped die.

Morning all. Over at Cardz4galz this morning we are looking for projects with more than one fold. I chose to do a z fold card and use some gorgeous papers my husband bought me.

Morning all. Things are fairly chaotic on the boat at the moment. We've spent the week painting the outside a gorgeous blue colour. Well...when I say we I mean Will and his mate Rob. I cleared off to mums for the week out of the way. Now I'm back I just need to keep it clean. Speaking of keeping it clean, we are after clean and simple for your Cardz4guyz projects this week. Probably a good job as I've had to pack all my craft stuff away so we could turn the dinette into a spare bed for Rob.

Hi! Over at The Alphabet Challenge this morning we are flying about looking for projects that include 'F for Flying'. Anything that flies will be lovely please.

Me again. As it's the 15th of the month we have a brand new challenge - and it was a challenge for me - over at Sparkles Monthly. I don't really class myself as a stamper but when someone says 'no stamping allowed' I realise that, even if it's just a sentiment, I do stamp on a lot of projects. It may be only a digital stamp but they aren't allowed either. So off to see what I've got lurking in the boxes I've not unpacked yet.
Morning all. Today, over at Cardz4galz, we are looking for projects using dies and punches. I do love my dies. I never really use punches much so, when I moved, I got rid of them. I had several DT projects to catch up on - having just returned from my holidays so I chose to case this card from Pinterest for my project.

Sorry guys, this post should have gone up at 9am. I've been swanning around Scotland for a fortnight and forgot to schedule my post. Over on Cardz4guyz this week we are focussing especially on the dads - as Father's Day is racing towards us. We are wanting to see your 'Father's Day' projects please.
I kept this fairly simple as I needed a card for my Father in Law and I've pretty much exhausted my ideas for wine and gardening.

Morning all. Are you ready for Summer? Over at Make My Monday we are looking for a little 'Summer Fun'. We've had some lovely weather recently on the Marina and It always makes me want to sit out on the boat something nice to drink and a good book. I'd have to move the washing I've got hanging to dry if I tried it today. Real life gets in the way a bit sometimes.

Morning all. Today we are looking for 'E for Easel' cards over at The Alphabet Challenge. If you aren't sure how to do an Easel Card there are loads of tutorials on the internet. It's one of my favourite types of fun fold. I decided to try one of the variations available and chose a Centre Step Easel Card.

Morning...again. We have another new challenge for you today over at Cardz4galz. We would like a 'slimline' card please. I wouldn't even qualify as slimline if I lost a couple of stone.
I really love how this one turned out. Once again my photography skills are pretty pathetic. I think there's too much light on the boat and my pictures are washed out. I used some pretty backing paper and added die cuts for this one and that's about it.
Please pop over and join in.
Thanks for reading.
Love Dawn x
Morning all. For my first card today I've created a mini forest of Christmas trees. And 'trees' is exactly what we are looking for over at Sparkles Christmas Challenge. I've gone with non-traditional colours and I'm loving a bit of pink.
