Pintrest To The Rescue

I have to admit that I wasn't going to share this card as it's not an original but short on time and stuck for an idea I saw this stunning creation  on Pintrest. Lucky for me I found that there's also a guitar template on the Scan N Cut, day saved!

What's In A Name.

I'm sorry, I'm still going through my ScanNcut shaped card phase. 

Still, think yourself lucky it's not another number card lol!

I have to say though, it does make for a great "Boy" card. The tag that you can see behind the star is actually where the greeting is written, being that the card made entirely from the letter shapes, this is really needed.

I'm using this card for the following challenges:-
JBCC April, Anything goes,
TCC April, Boys,
GGWSC, Anything goes,
PTT169, Anything goes,
PDE8, Anything goes.

Let's Pretend!

Let's pretend that this is the first time!

Let's pretend you've never seen a card like this before!

Pretend that when you called by the other week that you didn't see

After all, they are all unique lol!

And if you'd actually seen them for real these two 
are considerably smaller than the first one I made lol!

I'm using this card for the following challenges:-
PWC306, Masculine,
ABC, Just as you like it,
EAC, Anything goes.

I apologise in advance that there is every chance that there will be more cards, similar but unique lol! I can't help it, as the mother of an Eighteen year old boy, I get lots of requests for cards for his friends and now that I have it saved to file it's a relatively quick make.

Anyway, that's it for today,

Good Morning, it's the lovely Susan's turn to host the Ladybug challenge today, her theme is,
Now, I have to say that I really love white on white cards but for some reason I've not made one in ages so thanks Susan!

The Ladybugs have all used Floral Delights today, there are lots of them to choose from, something for every occasion I'd say and for both men and women.

I used "Clear Vase Of Delight",an image from The original "Floral delights"
It's a quick image to colour, perfect if you need to make an impressive, last minute card. I just added some of the most gorgeous bling, a few dots of liquid pearls and some glamour dust.

I've not hand rolled roses for ages, I'd forgotten how easy they are to make.

I'm using this card for the following challenges:-

AI87, Monochrome,
CBN, Diecuts,
CBC, Sparkle.

Fancy Poor Lighting !

Always Keep Your Camera Charged

This is a card, it doesn't look much like one but honestly, it is! It finished up against the clock and it wasn't till my son was ready to go to a party that I realised that my battery was flat so this is the only photo that I managed. It fits in a DL envelope and as the card is formed with open lettering, the tag that's on the end gives space at the back to be write the greeting. I hope I'm not going to bore you with my Scan n Cut creations!

I'm using this card for the following challenges:-
CBD April, Anything goes,
DBD, Anything goes,
I&Y50, Anything goes,
SOS145, Faux, (Stitching to the tag).

Ladybug Birthday Challenge.

Goodness it's only 9am and I'm already on my second DT post of the day.
It's the lovely Ladybug Lyndsey who is hosting today's challenge at
 "Totally Ladybug Tuesday"
and the theme that she's chosen is 

This time the Ladybugs have all used
I wish you could see how glittery the frosting is, I swirled lilac and pearl liquid pearls together and poured a generous amount of glamour dust over it, leaving it to dry overnight before  shaking off the excess.

I'm using this card for the following challenges:-
OSAAT206, Anything goes,

Spring Colours With Lavinia.

It's a new challenge theme at Lavinia Stamps Challenge,
This time it's,

Ok, mine are a little more Citrus than Spring but they are certainly cheerful! I used a selection of stamps and inks onto a piece of scrap card which I then hand cut it into triangles to create my bunting adding some inky stitching.
The same goes for my background, also stamping, embossing and colouring my Zentangle butterfly.

I'm using this card for the following challenges:-
Hobbycutz, Shaped card,
C4E169, Mum,
DD81, Mum.
