Hello everyone,

for our May challenge I created a cheerful wine tagwith my favourite vizsla stamp.

On my blog you will find the tutorial.

Have a happy May!


Miriam

Happy May.  A very exciting challenge for me this month as we have recently adopted a new pussycat.  In the short few weeks we have had her, Mia has really shown her playful and adventurous character.
I thought the image in my first project sums her up nicely!



Pop over to my blog where you can see what I used to create this card.
Thanks for joining me.

Jane

I am very much a " cat" girl so both of my DT makes this month will feature cats. For my first make I used the incredible Visible Image Curious cats stamp set. I think it is the most realistic cat image on the market. 

I made a distress oxide stenciled background and if you would like to see how I made it just jump on over to my blog here 

I will be back on 15th May with some more cat inspiration.

Bye for now,



Evelyn 

Hello and happy sunday!

Hello everyone, here is my first project for our April challenge.
It's weird, I've never used this die set before, so it was about time because these bunnies are really adorable.
If you need a tutorial, please hop on my blog.


Jane

  Hello April and spring!  Today is my birthday (yes seriously, it's not an April Fool) I adore spring flowers and for my first make for this challenge I used the gorgeous Sketched Tulips by Visible Image.https://mistletoehomedecoration.blogspot.com/ also a play with the wonderful new saltwater taffy distress ink. 


I have a full step by step over on my blog here. I also have some photos of the Country View Crafts stand where I demoed for Susan a few weeks back at the  Ally Pally Crafterama show in London. What a fun and very busy weekend we enjoyed. Head on over on my blog here if you would like to see more. There might even be a virtual slice of birthday cake for you too 😄

Bye for now,

Jane x


Rachel 


Spring for me is such a wonderful time - all about the natural world coming back to life and bringing with it the joys of colour, warmth and new life! For me, its also about that twitterpating that goes on in the animal kingdom too! Hence my card for this challenge. You will find more details on my blog here. I do hope you can join our challenge!
Big hugs
Rachel xx
