A Card I didnt want to make

This is a card I made for Liz G's family some of you may know her if you are a docrafter. I was shocked to hear of her sad and sudden passing and although I generally don't make these i couldn't not send my condolences. The sentiment is a stamp I received this weekend from Laney and it just was the most perfect sentiment for this.

Crafty Catz challenge 91 Tags

Good Evening I have some bad news and some good to share with you all.
Well lets get the Bad out of the way first and hopefully the good will cheer you all up. The lovely Dawn has decided to step down from her postion on Crafty Catz and although she hasnt been with us long she will be missed and we wish her all the best. She is my twin as we both share the same birthday so i will be extra sorry to see her go but hopefully she will not be a stranger.

Now the good news I won 5 fab images at Tiddly inks from there new release wow it was soo hard to pick just 5. So if you havent checked them out what you waiting for. Also I have just found out I won Guylou's challenge and part of the prize will be a guest spot 1 week.

Also it being Friday and weekend is here so that means another challenge for you from Crafty Catz and this week it is the very talented Janette's turn to set the challenge. Must say not something i make or seem to use is TAGS so completely out of my comfort zone.

Our sponsor this week is Emma's Store, and the winner will recieve a stamp from Wild Rose Studio.

I decided to make a card and place my sentiment on the Tag so if you struggle you can do this too. I made this for Janette Daughter as a Graduation card. A little different but as i wanted the sentiment to be a large part i thought this was a good one. Anyway she has it and I believe she liked.
Image coloured with promarkers . DP Anna Griffin touch of ribbon over the lace. M.S butterfly punch. Few gems and flowers from Wild orchid and my stash.
Well hope you like and plaese pop by the rest of the teamies for more inspiration the are all so different and wonderful.

Creative Inspiration #120 - No Flowers

Good morning hope you are all enjoying the week half way through not long to weekend now. Today is the infants sports day at the local school so I will be going to cheer on my nephew.

Well as it is Wednesday it is time for another challenge at Creative Inspiration and this week we would love to see what you come up with as long as there are NO FLOWERS yes you read correctly so put them yummy flowers away and find some other embellishments.

Our sponsor this week is Mel Jen Designs

Who is kindly giving the winner 4 images of their choice.

Now for my card I decided to try something a little different in that I thought NO Flowers lets make it Clean & Simple. I used a Digi image from Bugaboo just love these they make me smile. The sentiment is a lot of my friends down to a Tee.

Brown shades used to tie in with the Chocolate theme and of course the lady has to have nice Pink lips. Image coloured with Promarkers and and the clouds are also done with sparkly chalks. Gold candy dots and the paper is from a Christmas pad with really lovely gold stripes. Nice coffee colour satin ribbon to finish. The inside has been decorated to co ordinate.

I will be entering this into the following challenges
Bugaboo - CAS (sat)
CCEE - In Chocolate colours (thur)
Little Claire - Pink & Brown (sat)
Deep Ocean Challenge- Cards (tues)
Pollycraft - Great Out door ( clouds) (mon)
