Punched out the shapes for the roses using the left over bits of the Brenda Pinnick papers. Made the box using the crafters companion box maker. (the original wooden one)

Pretty in Lilac

Hi all, well Im back from Hols, had a great time, and the weather was lovely, just like it is here today. We flew from Bornemouth Airport for the first time, what a pleasure it was not to queue for everything, Gatwick and Heathrow have become a nightmare to travel through. Oh but its good to see the sun, this winter seems to have dragged on and on, I can finaly put me thermal vest away(lol)

Ive missed so many beautiful creations this last two weeks. I decided to have a play too. I was going through an odd box of bits, and found some paper Id printed off ages ago, (from a Sharon Duncan cd,) which I originally used for my papercraft class.
And as my new years resolution is to use up the bits of paper I have stashed, n not buy anymore... I can't resist buying more.

Cards for men

Hi all

By the time this is posted, I will be firmly planted in Majorca, and will be there until 19th of May. I apologise now as I may not be able to reply to all the cards entered. I pray the volcanic ash doesn't play up again while I'm there.

For this challenge the theme is Outdoors, and I have used the free image supplied by our sponsor, although we did have a choice, from Claire at Hope Jaycare Claire trained in Textile Design at the Glasgow School of Art and I loves all things handmade, but especially papercrafts. Her doodles are available to purchase as digital images through Shop Handmade." Available from here

The prize is again 3 digis of the winners choice.

Ive done a sidestep card as I thought it suited the image well, coloured with Promarkers, dps by Brenda Pinnick, I created the waves on PSP and added glamour dust for effect. Seagulls are from a child's colouring page.

See you all on the 19th
