Not around for while

Just in case anyone is interested, I have some health issues myself & need to go into hospital & my hubby has had an accident which means he is immobile, & will be incapacitated for weeks, so card making is not on my radar at the moment.
Hopefully Ill see you soon xx

Elephants Dont Forget!

Dream Valley have another challenge for you & this week its Animals & is sponsored by Robyns Fetish. I chose to use An Elephant Never Forgets which can be purchased here 
I coloured it with TH Distress Inks & added Aged Silver Frantage to the mount (it looks gold in the picture). The die is a Nellie Snellen multi frame & the tag is a Magnolia die. The sentiment is my own & computer generated. The paper is Bo Bunny Zoology Collection.  Flowers & Ribbon from stash, as are the pearls.

Get Well at Divas

Its Team B turn over at Divas By Design & this challenge is sponsored by Shape EZ & is called Shape It Up. Unfortunately I did not have a template to use so have made a swing card & made this in about 2 hours as my crafting brain has gone walk about at the moment.
I used an image from Stitchy store which I got whilst being on their DT, which I coloured with Promarkers & Prismas. The papers are First Edition Isobelle & edged with TH Broken China DI. The ticket die is Magnolia with a SU sentiment stamp. A few dew drops & ribbon complete the card.

Drip Drop Tilda

Stamp & Create with Magnolia have another challenge & the theme is Spring Showers, now this does not have to have rain, it can be rain, a rainbow or clouds, so dont feel it can only be rain. The prize is as below.
I chose to use Drip Drop Tilda which was a special edition from here & coloured her with Prisma pencils. The papers are Papermania Designstax & Black Market Paper Society Let It Bloom. I have gone a bit mad on the Frantage lol. I created the back ground of the mount with Pan Pastels, so there are clouds behind Tilda & added Glossy Accents to look like rain.
I used a Magnolia Christmas Lace die & added the waste to the top of the card as I liked the shape of it. Added the usual ribbon, charm, flowers & Candy & there you have the finished card.

80 & Pretty at Dream Valley

Dream Valley have another challenge today & its No Squares Here (No square cards) & is sponsored by Craft Ribbons
Now I sat for almost 2 hours , playing around with images, shapes, themes & I could not get any inspiration & loads went in the bin. I knew I had to make an 80 for a relative so wanted to combine this challenge with the need for this card. Anyway I eventually used a La Pashe image already coloured (I had wasted too much time faffing about) which was decoupaged. The papers are both Bo Bunny Prairie Chic & Ambrosia collections I have edged the pink one with TH DI Victorian Velvet & used Shabby White Frantage on the green paper. The butterfly has been cut out on my Craft Robo with a template from UKScrappers & I have embossed it with pink embossing powder & more Frantage. Added a few pearls, lace & flowers all from stash. The 80 was a Cuttlebug alphabet die & again covered with Frantage.
This post is scheduled as I am away for the weekend, so will look for challenges once I am back.
