Birthday Wishes

After winning a challenge organised by Sunny Challenges and Creations, I was asked if I would like to be a Guest designer for a challenge.  I was away when the invite arrived so I had time to think about doing it and obviously I jumped at the chance. 

These are great little Australian based competitions and I love that it is a different theme or colour scheme each fortnight.  I just wish they were each week, because they are enjoyable challenges with no pressure at all.  So pop over and have a go!

The challenge this time is a sketch and just for a change, I knew immediately what I wanted to do.

All ingredients except the sentiment are Stampin'Up - albeit mostly retired product.

Looking forward to seeing what everyone else comes up with this week.

Frightening Feline

A last minute run to enter the Dynamic Duo challenge of Tangerine Tango and Black with Halloween thrown in for dessert.


Not too many ingredients in this one, but they are all Stampin' Up:
Tangerine Tango card; black embossing powder; Frightening Feline stamp; That's the Ticket stamp.

It has just dawned on me that as the front was cut with a framelit die this card is suitable for the challenge at Sunny Creations and Challenges, so I will enter it there as well.

Edited to add:  Many thanks for selecting puss this time.

Trees, glorious trees ...

This week is all about trees at Less is More, so I am having another try at the less is more concept.

We'd love you to display our banner
I have deviated from my normal products and used a Penny Black stamp called "Home for Christmas", but all other ingredients are Stampin' Up - ie: Concord Crush cardstock; Glossy White cardstock; Concord Crush Ink; Woodgrain Embossing folder.
 Thanks for popping in,

Baby challenge

Yes, most babies are a challenge - a wonderful challenge, of course. 

Having been absent for a couple of weeks spending lots of time with all of my Grandbabies (and my own two babies!!), I am just diving in with a card for Sunny Challenges and Creations.

This is made with the wonderful SU Baby Bundle set which is now retired, but which I will be keeping.  Why are you laughing???  Oh, that's right, I keep all of my stamps! even the ones that have never seen ink.
