Just For Fun DT Card.

Hi everyone,
Would you believe I have blogged two days in a row!  I know but here I am.

This is my second Design Team post for the  Just for Fun Challenge.  The theme for January is 'New' so I choose 'New Beginning'.  When I started to put the card together I had no idea where to start so when I came across this Kanban stamp from Aspire Crafts  I knew it was right. I stamped it with Memento 'Grey Flannel and used Pro markers to colour it.
 When I had the card put together I realised how poignant it really was. The ship sailing from the shore fits the sentiment beautifully. 

The lacy die cut is Spellbinders Elegant labels 4 and I also used them for the sentiment by trimming down the back one. I added the silver corners to balance and frame the card.  I hope you are inspired to have a go and join in with our challenge  HERE .
Have a happy day and treat each day as a New Beginning.
Hugs, Kay. XX

Quilt Inspired

A quick post of a card inspired by quilting.
 I am entering it in Get Inky! challenge.
 I have used 4 different patterned papers. Two are printed and two are stamped, cut into segments and faux stitched. 
The large lace circle was cut with a WeR Memory Keepers punch and the center is a Spellbinders die. I stamped the pattern in the center and added gems.

I really enjoyed the challenge of putting it together and I hope you like it.

New Year - New Challenge Blog

Hi Everyone,

I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and that you will have a great 2014. One of my resolutions is to be more organised in the coming year. With that in mind  when I was asked to join the Design Team at a new challenge blog called  the Christmas Fun Challenge Blog I was delighted.

As I have to make a Christmas card every month for it I have decided to make at least 5 the same or similar so that when it comes next Christmas I have a head start on my cards and other bits and pieces
Below is my card for the 'Anything Goes' theme for January. I hope that you will join in. We have a great Design Team and there will be lots of ideas. So I challenge you to get crafting  for next Christmas.

Here is my card :-

 It is quite a simple card. I scored an A4 card in half and cut an embossed piece of card for the background. I edged it with a matching promarker to make it stand out. 
I added lace and a piece of patterned card (I had no matching ribbon).
The topper is from Lilli of the Valley and the sentiment from my stash. They are matted and layered on to silver mirri card and I added silver corner peel offs to bring balance to the overall card. I hope you like it.
