I chose the "Nature 1" set of digi images as I love both the flowers and the sentiment. I printed them off on to a piece of Graphicus patterned paper, and trimmed the side with the flower on, down to A5. The sentiment was cut out witha die and added on along with some ribbon. Very simple card to make!! Have to confess it took longer to print off the images than to make the card, LOL. Thankfully my printer has now been overhauled, and is in perfect (yer right) working order. Pop on over and join in the challenge via the link on my sidebar, and good luck. Elizabeth x

This week over Rainbow Lady's Challenge our theme is Christmas Sweet Treats. We are being sponsored by Whimsy Stamps who have put up some fab blog candy for grabs!!!
The hard choice I had to make was which one of there scrummy Christmas treats to chose from! I finally went for the cupcake, and orginally planned to do pink, but being a traditional kind of girl at heart, how could I not do red and green? I used a selection of promarkers to colour in my little cake, and then added some extra holly from a little Nitwit stamp free with Simply Homemade magazine. Thought it went well, and made a lovely border. The paper is DCWV and of course I had to have a little sparkle in the icing from Art Institute glitter! Hope you enjoy, and pop over to join in this week's challenge, the link is on my sidebar, good luck. Elizabeth x

As we all sent our swaps to different people, I received a beautiful work of art from Sam aka Hettiecraft. Sam has made me a gorgeous tag, with mica birdcages and birds flying around on a beautiful inky background (sorry Sam my piccie doesn't do it justice). all embellished with a golden shrunk plastic birdcage and my initial dangling from a chain and ribbon. Thank you again Sam it's gorgeous, and is on display in my workroom!

This week over at Rainbow Lady's Challenge we are being sponsored by Joanna Sheen, who as always has put up a fab prize for grabs! We would like you to show some embossing on your project this week, I chose to have a play with UTEE. I chose this frame as it has a nice wide, flat surface to emboss on to. I sanded and then painted it with acrylic paint. I then added two layers of my chosen colour of Cosmic Shimmer UTEE directly on to the frame with versamark ink. I had already melted a mixture of clear UTEE, gold and copper embossing powders and left them to set on a heat proof mat. I melted a section of the frame and added chunks of the pre heated embossing powder, melting it in to the frame as I worked around the edge. The finish is very organic and has a beautiful sheen to it. Hope you like, please pop on over to join in this weeks challenge via the link on my sidebar. Elizabeth x
