Wednesday 6 February 2013

Morning all, today is a special post for one of the challenges I love to participate's Crafty Creations and the lovely Bernie asked me if I'd like to guest design for February...well you know what the answer was! I was delighted to be asked so it had to be a big 'yes' immediately. Thankyou for inviting me. I hope you all enjoy the inspiration with my first creation for their fab challenge 'black, white and touch of one other'. Mine was pale blue.
I made my own carton in black card, used some old d/load black check/gingham paper on all four sides, used 'football bears' LOTV stamp, part of my win, separated off each bear to pop up for all sides, finished with stamp sentiment from 'everday grunge' stamps set, individual footballs using a stamp from See D's, card has the full stamp in its glory, I love these fun bears, balls are decoupaged on the card, image coloured with Promarkers, twisted threads to make twine. Super birthday sentiment LOTV too.
Thankyou to the Crafty Creations team for all their wonderful inspiration and amazing talent, hope you'll be able to play along too! Now for some challenges...I Love Promarkers, it's their 3rd birthday.. so a massive 'Happy 3rd Birthday' to them, Promarker 'boys and their toys', LEJ 'anything goes' as is Papertake, Love to create are celebrating their 1st year so many congratulations to them too, Live, laugh, stamp 4th final entry, Pink Gem 'gingham/checks', Crafty catz 2nd, LOTV 2nd and Stampin for the weekend 'metal..charm'. So that's about it for today, many thanks for popping over, hope to see your creations on Crafty Creations, bye!
