Monochrome Violet? Not!

I love Rainbow Lady's challenges! Imaginative & with oodles of space for creativity. But this week I have failed & should be disqualified! I post my card nonetheless with a sense of arrogant pride: I tried, did not make the grade, but still have a card which is perfect for my nearly 30 year old step-daughter!

The First Inch!!!

There's an awesome new challenge blog  -Inch by Inch. Inspired by beautiful posts I thought I'd try it -how difficult & how much fun?!? One inch by one inch & to include any word is all -hah!!! Anyway here's mine which I dedicate to all the "Kiss Me Kate" cast & crew. We were indeed "Too Darn Hot"!!!

Christmas Beads

 This is cheeky! My Christmas angel card was an excuse to wrap silver & red beads round the repeatedly stamped angel which disguises the fact I still can't stamp! So Rainbow Lady thank you for another versatile challenge which I am also posting for Fab's Big Christmas Challenge

Fairy Godmothers

The Fairy Godmothers granting the baby's wishes -& so much acetate, iridescent hearts & glitter that it's too difficult to get a decent shot. Sorry everyone! This is for Rainbow Lady's challenge which this week is fairies.

Here is yet another commissioned baby card. I guess it will soon be the wedding season instead lol! This one was also designed to suit the DCM midweek challenge to use folds on the card -here the envelope is folded. I wish I had some gadget to emboss my card blanks and add interest..... but I haven't.

Lots to Do!

A card for Rainbow Lady's plastic challenge and a CD for the Lots to Do challenge! I'm feeling emotional as the "KMK" run finished yesterday -no more "Another op'nin, Another show" for me. This is a plastic cd cover attached to a card blank & a KMK poster as backing paper to decorate the CD. I cut the kiss & kate from a flyer, mounted them on red card & SWALKED the plastic shut.... a card for the producers!

Making Waves

Waves for the Papertake Weekly challenge hand-embossed onto the card blank & a scalloped edge that's 1cm shorter than the back so the card stands up balanced on the lighthouse panel. I used the scalloped off-cut on the bottom layer of the card to add dimension. TFL!

Oooohh là là!

Are you thinking garters & "something borrowed, something blue"? Here's my Poppicrafts ribbon challenge card. Skim down & you'll see what a ribbon user I am -not! I've used 84cm & 7 different types here(there's an aqua ribbon under the lace).

Please hop by again -I promise my PIF prize competition will be posted Monday evening/Tuesday morning latest!
