Sorry!! I will get the hang of this soon!! This is where you will find Julia's challenge


I thought i would like to try my hand at Julia's Masquerade challenge! I made the card using papers from the fabulous 'Figgy Pudding' 6 x 6. The stamp is 2968K Adante from Penny Black.
I had cut some ovals using my Cricut machine for another project, and did not want to throw away the 'waste' part left on the cutting mat. I used a piece of this to create my 'mask' and then stippled some ink through the hole!, left it for a moment to dry and then stamped the image with the 'mask still in place. (I hope this is making sense!!)
I used Adirondack ink throughout. Ribbon and brads from 'stash' I am addicted to Basic Grey, paper, so i use it at much as possible :) Thanks for looking.

Our beautiful Granddaughter is two on 31st October. I made her this card today using some of my yummy Basic Grey paper. (I have so much paper, but i just can't seem to stop buying more!!) I wanted to try and highlight the tiny turquoise spots from the 'Crush' paper on the chipboard crown, so i used a Versamagic ink pad (Sea Breeze) to colour my white Doodlebug paper frills. I did the same on the chipboard 2 and on the 'Blush' letters.
I love the MAMBI crystal name sticker(i have several of these!!!) She is such an adorable child and i cannot begin to describe how much i love her :) I hope she likes her 'Princess card!

I love these little pails :) They are so cute to stuff with shredded tissue paper and bury the goodies inside!!! Inside i 'hid' a silver necklace and bracelet, and a gift card from a large department store in our town. The KI Memories papers again along with some chipboard from Basic Grey and Craftwork Cards.

This is a view of the lid!!


My son's partner Justine, has recently celebrated her 21st Birthday. This is the card i made for her using the funky papers and tiny ribbons from KI Memories. Small clear gems added for the bling factor!! Card size is 5 x 7.
