Project Lace

Well what a hectic couple of weeks its been at Clairez Cardz.  What with having craft fairs and customer orders, have also had family issues to deal with too, so been busy in all aspects of my life.

And I know it is only halfway through October but as a card maker we need to start thinking of christmas cards and gifts early, so have been working on my christmas card stock for future craft fairs as well as making handmade advent calendars which have proven to be quite popular as they are really a keepsake and can be used year on year.  Pictures can be found at my facebook page .

Well it also that time again for showing you my design team challenge project.  This fortnights theme over at Creative Moments is to use some lace and my image is from Sassy Studio Designs. So make sure you pop over and enter your project

For this card i used a cream cardstock and the lace design was cut out using my Cameo machine, I then used a stripey backing paper from my craft cupboard, the Rainbow Brite image was coloured using promarkers - Magenta and Amethyst with Blush being used for the skin and Tan for the hair, i then embellished with some handmade bows and added a Happy Birthday sentiment.

When looking to see what colours Rainbow Brite should have been i found an image and used that to colour her
and although she looks cool, I decided on some different colours to brighten her up a wee bit as used in the card above - again this image was coloured using promarkers - colours used where Magenta, Amethyst, Royal Blue, Gold, Tulip Yellow, Grass and Blush

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Challenges 4 Everybody - Anything Goes
Creative Craft Challenges - Anything Goes
The Crafting Cafe - Anything Goes

October already!!!!

Well firstly i need to apologise for my lack of blogging since the last post.  Family bereavement along with a hard to handle 10 year old (who has ADHD and Autism) has kind of taken of September so unfortunately my crafting had to take a back seat.  But all is improving and am back to crafting and have to say have really missed it.

Can't believe that we are in October already, this year is going far to fast for my liking.

Well have been working on my DT projects the last few days.

The theme over at Creative Moments this fortnight is Owls/Anything Goes.

I decided to choose an Owl digital stamp from Delicious Doodles and went for a very simple card, but am very pleased with the result

Looking forward to seeing everyone's creations over on the challenge at Creative Moments
